Who Is Red John?

I’m a big fan of The Mentalist. In the season 5 finale, we found out who’s on Jane’s list of suspects (which has been vouched for by the show’s creator, Bruno Heller). Given certain information, Jane was able to narrow the list of possibilities to seven. Here they are, along with the list of episodes each character appears in. I’ve tried googling “who is red john? episodes” and “suspected red john episodes” and all kinds of other things like that, to no avail. So although it’s way outside the normal realm of this blog, I thought I’d do a public service and post it. We’ll be back to regularly scheduled programming shortly.
