There are plenty of reasons Kristina Frye could be Red John, too. First of all, she also has red hair. Her first appearance was in the episode called “Seeing Red.” That would be another obvious “clue” in retrospect if she turned out to be Red John.
Another reason is that Frye always seems to have the upper hand on Patrick Jane. Sound familiar? It’s sorta like his logic is rock but her faith is paper. Also, she volunteered to help Jane catch Red John. When he turned her down, she went on TV with her appeal to Red John, whereby she promptly disappeared.
When Jane subsequently met “Red John,” quotes used because we never know if it was really him, he told Jane that Kristina would want him to send her love.
When Frye finally re-emerged, it was in a catatonic state. When Jane tries to snap her out of it with a séance, she says she is already dead and “talking to a ghost.” This could be a great double-entendre in retrospect.
When you add everything about Kristina Frye up, you get someone who has Jane’s number intellectually and who can disappear for long periods of time. Also, both criminals and heroes have a long history of using drugs in their storylines to feign catatonia or death.
On the negative side, of the four “candidates,” she is the only one who hasn’t overtly demonstrated the ability to lie, manipulate, or kill. She doesn’t show any background of dysfunction or any current traits of past dysfunction. When the show’s main character is as flawed and dysfunctional as Patrick Jane, it would be quite different to have the main antagonist not show dysfunction.
However, her unknown quantities and qualities give the writers a lot more wiggle room, and there are tons of ways this could be worked into the storylines.
Chances of being Red John: 4 out of 10.
