I don't care what else happens on the finale... that crazy harpy had better be dead. This had better be a video tape or a flashback of some type. If she is still alive I am turning my TV off immediately and through with the show forever. They already fooled me once with the fake Red John dying at the end of season 3. If they bring Lorelei back I am through. I need to be able to trust at least some of what I see on my screen. If everything is a lie, what is the point in even trying to figure anything out.

@Entife - just this: "that's so nice of you to say. Thank you, Ana." Like I said, I'm pathetic!

I'm inclined to think Lorelei will appear in a flashback or video. I really hope she is dead. I want her to be dead. I don't think poor Lisbon would take much more at this point.

@Entwife,
It also makes her more likable. I had a small soft spot for her as a character. Really thought that she had been mistreated by her mom, and that RJ knew that he'd have to destroy Lorelei's joy (reuniting with her sister) to twist her so completely. That cat like turn of her head and her crushed little girl face when she learned the truth, was sympathetic to me. I thought that at some level she was redeemable, that when RJ's control evaporated that good within her would propel her to act. Could be a fantasy wish on my part, though.

And a video would leave the field wide open, too.

It always nagged me how pristine Lorelei's coloring when she was laid out dead in the warehouse. Her mascara was still totally intact, not runny or smudging dark circles under her eyes. It gave me a creepy Snow White feel. But I had to believe she was dead. More likely that she is really dead. We don't want the second coming!

That would be a great development, @KM! Perfect! And it saves us the pain and disgruntlement of having Lorelei still around, especially to possibly lure Patrick. Urgh! She could remain really most sincerely dead.

@Entwife,
Another possibility is a video recording. What if Lorelei decided during those two weeks that she wanted to give herself some peace, that should she fail at killing RJ herself, then she will have succeeded in betraying him by leaving a video. Not unlike the mom did in "Redemption". Or an audio CD/recording like Billy left Madolyn to stick it to Colin Sullivan in "The Departed". I did not go to Lorelei is alive, but that she left a plan B to be used.

That's terrrific @estatica! What did he say?

My brain's turned to mush at this point. Plus, still trying to avoid fangirling hysterically over the fact that Michael Gaston replied to one of my tweets and used my first name. I'm pathetic.

Thanks for posting that @estatica! Double believable, since he killed Lennon, that Kirkland could have set up Lorelei's fake death to fool Jane, while Kirkland has her in double-secret custody. The question is, what does he gain by keeping Lorelei when he killed Lennon? Each knew who Red John is. Maybe Lorelei is how Kirkland knew who Red John is and so didn't need that info from Lennon.

Of course if it's unknown flashback Lorelei, the field's wide open!

omg. Lorelei isn't dead after all? I always had to save back it was a set-up. Just too pat and convenient -- and, run by Kirkland! Although, it could be flashbacks of things she said or did with Patrick that we don't yet know about. That would be her 5th appearance, as we originally thought she would do.

Brett Partridge again. Twice this season. hmmmmm

*shiver*
