I believe me and other millions of viewers were utterly disappointed by the Mentalist's latest reveal, the moment everybody was waiting for... has been disgustingly demolished into a million pieces that cannot be put together ever again :'( I don't know what to say Bruno Heller, except that my grandmother could've came up with a better Red John character -_-
Nothing about what we were told concerning RJ is true! nothing! no questions have been answered, no red carpet for his majesty the Red John! the fearsome and legendary RJ turned out to be the old Nappa county old geezer sheriff, with all due respect to his character, he's a good actor but he's not fit for RJ, I mean come on! who are they kidding >n< even Simon Baker was disappointed by their choice but then when I started reading the interviews after the devastating episode, I read somewhere that Heller didn't have an idea on who will be RJ until recently... which explains everything! I thought the mentalist was different from the other series but it turned out that all American series are nothing but a carrot stick and am not willing to do any running after them anymore. I even stopped watching the show, unless someone tells me RJ is someone else, am not going back in.
Brett Partridge would've made a better RJ than anyone in the list, but to be honest, none of the characters in the list satisfies the Red Johnian features and aura. it's like they came up with a legendary character that does not exist and for me, RJ is still there somewhere xD might as well believe in this than the crap they put in the episode... RJ calling 911 then begging for mercy WTH?!!!
I don't even wanna talk about it anymore, they just had to ruin it at the end, they always do.
Thank you Bruno Heller for ruining a wonderful character such as Red John... thank you, I hope you can live with this guilt for the rest of your life.
