Continued: They are both competitive and if many people consider Jane to be the best mentalist and hypnotist, wouldn’t that make Dr. Daniel jealous? Plus his name – Dr. ROYston Daniel. He played the victim in Russet Potatoes, and that’s one reason we would not suspect him.

@Rationalgal: as per your thoughts on who RJ is - that brings me back to my theory that RJ could be Dr. Royston Daniel from the Neurolinguistic Programming firm. Like Stiles, he has a huge following and is admired by his pupils and has the means to accomplish the things RJ does. He’s tall, energetic, the same age as Jane. The fact that he didn’t shake hands with Jane in the Russet Potatoes episode does not mean that they never shook hands in the past - perhaps when they were children but Jane does not remember him from back then (maybe Royston hypnotized Jane to not remember him). In Russet Potatoes Jane acknowledged that he was familiar with Daniel’s work. Dr. Daniel is charismatic and intelligent and is considered one of, if not ‘the best’ hypnotist in the field. I took an instant dislike to his character, as he’s arrogant and controlling, but isn’t Jane, albeit in a lovable way? lol.

I loved Fugue in Red it was pretty funny. My favorite quote was "PUT YOUR GAME FACE ON COCKROACH, IT'S GAME TIME." Why are they doing this anyway?

I own a VUDU account through walmart, they have season's 4 and all of the 5th season's episodes so far (9) for sale to view immediately at $1.99 a episode.I've had this account for a while and it's worth it! So if you want to get a jump start on season 5, here you go!

If you haven't seen Fugue in Red, DON'T MISS THIS ONE! And if you have seen it, watch it again! It is absolutely wonderful! It begins very dramatically, moving on to hilarious, ending in the most touching, heartbreaking (but lovely) scene in the entire series. I have the DVD and it's one I watch again and again and again. Simon Baker gives a great performance portraying ever-changing aspects of Patrick Jane's personna and emotional state.

oh well, should have looked at the air date -- it's a rerun from 12/15/2011.

unbelievably, I don't think I've ever seen it. so it will still be fun for me.

sorry about the oversight.

CBS's blurb: "­­While searching for a firefighter’s killer, Jane is attacked and nearly drowned in a small pond. Upon waking up, he can no longer remember anything about Red John, the murder of his family, or his work with the CBI. Lisbon and the rest of the team must continue the investigation with the help of an increasingly erratic Patrick Jane who has reverted back to his pre-CBI con man persona."

Wow. Can't wait!

Very odd.

My U-Verse just says the title, "Fugue in Red." No description. There should be one.

IMDb: "While investigating the murder of a firefighter, Patrick loses his memory after nearly being drowned by the killer."

Wikia: "During the search for a firefighter's killer, Jane is attacked and nearly drowned, resulting in a temporary loss of his memory and a return to his pre-CBI con man persona."

Oh, this should be a LOT of fun!!! LOL

Haven't seen any info on the Dec. 2 episode. Is it a rerun? If so, which one? Anyone know? Thanks!

Re Mashburn: Lots of dramatic potential here. A budding friendship with Jane betrayed. Lisbon devastated to realize she had a one-night (maybe more) stand with him, the viewer angst at seeing such an entertaining character (so much like Jane in some ways) become suddenly a horrible villian. Can't think of any other character that would work for a really blockbuster ending. What would falsify this theory?
