    One of my favorite shows on TV. A little annoyed at how long they have strung out Red John. Hopefully they will end it soon. My guess is that Bertrum is the only one that makes sense. Also, because they introduced a secret society, I hope they don't continue that theme after this season.

    Yep, that would be my guess....another cult/secret society.

    I like the show/characters, but am ready to move on to something else. Maybe the next show for some closure, but doubtful.

    Based on promo's I watched on Sunday foolishly hopeful that Red John would finally be exposed. Boy was I sucked in and disappointed.

    Just watched the last episode. That was pretty good stuff. Can't wait for tomorrow nights!

    Do you think Bertrum is Red John? Is there as twist they can pull off? The FBI guy said something about Jane not even trying to find Red John.

    I wanted more explanation about why. They could have cut the chase down by a bunch and gave more in-depth background about how it all came about and why it all came about. Other than that, I was entertained. I didn't know what the twist would be but knew there would be a few.

    I agree. They didn't do anything to explain why. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I liked some of the twists and how you can feel the anger from Jane at the end.

    There is no Mentalist or CBI without Jane. The preview shows him on vacation, but no one wants to watch a show about that. I assume and hope he will be back.

    I like the serial killer aspect of these shows. I think one that doesn't have an emotional attachment with Jane would be excellent for the rest of this season and spill into next season.

    I am also not so sure we are done with the Red John storyline or Blake Association. I am not sure the FBI leader and some of the agents aren't on the other side.

    Also, they showed the lady that tried to kill Jane in the Church walking away in the end. Who was she?

    I'm glad Red John is revealed and hope it's done. Went on too long, but wonder what'll follow if anything. The woman who walked away is a loose end that'll be a follow on for sure.

    I hope not. I think they have a good chance to actually delve into the serial killer aspect a bit more. One of my criticisms of this show, which I have watched from the beginning, was that they should have hashed out the 'why' more, or at least better 'speculation' about Red John's motivations. I liked the secret society angle, but they also handled it a little clumsily, a little too forced. Heller can make for it by really working out some of these details in a way that is 'natural' and intriguing. In any case, I know Grace and Rigsby are out sometime in the second half of the season, but I think Cho will be back as will Lisbeth. In any case, I'll still watch as this type of major change to a show isn't the norm and quite frankly, I am curious as to what happens.

    I will continue to watch as long as Jane & Lisbeth are the central characters, they can bring in a whole new ensemble as far as I care - I'd like it better if Cho stayed too but he is a throw in, not a game breaker from my perspective, I am another vote for more focus on the serial killer angle for moving forward

    I really like Cho's deadpan style. I think he's coming back but he's also on another show right now.

    I am loving the new storyline. Jane on a national scale is genius. I think it opens up storylines. Could be a love triangle with Lisbon and the FBI agent.
