So much for a tattoo being the surefire way to determine who Red John is.
On Sunday's episode of The Mentalist, Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) gathers the five remaining Red John suspects — Bret Stiles (Malcolm McDowell), Ray Haffner (Reed Diamond), Thomas McAllister (Jack Plotnick), Reede Smith (Drew Powell) and Gale Bertram (Michael Gaston) — at his house to determine once and for all which one is his nemesis. As he's rounding the quintet up, we learn a couple of important things: first, that the FBI has reopened their investigation into Bret Stiles, but Stiles isn't worried about being found because he's dying getting ready to "elevate himself to another plane," in the parlance of Visualize.

Red John is back with a vengeance on The Mentalist. The serial killer who has made a game out of tormenting Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) promised Jane in the Season 5 finale that he was going to start killing again until Jane captured him — or vice versa. And he didn't waste any time in sticking to his word.
It's the beginning of the end for the Red John story line on CBS' The Mentalist. Creator Bruno Heller has promised that the case which has plagued Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) since Season 1 will be solved this year. And based on the Season 6 premiere, Heller and Co. aren't wasting any time in getting to the conclusion.
"We've never really started a season with this kind of situation in which our guys are very, very close to the bad guy, but the bad guy knows exactly as much as they do," Heller tells TVGuide.com. "It's an interesting chess position that they're both in as we start. ... In this first episode, Lisbon is dealing with the fact that Jane for the first time doesn't seem to know what to do next. And that scares the hell out of her."
We asked Heller to make a case for each of the seven suspects. "All of those guys have reasons to hide aspects of their personality," he says. "It's just a question of whether they're hiding for ordinary prosaic reasons or for sinister, evil reasons."
