As we have seen, the likelihood of Bruno Heller bringing Red John in from left field is probably quite slim. The only chance of that happening is if we get to see more of Jane’s past. That has happened once this year when one of Jane’s old “clients” was a character on “Pretty Red Balloon.” Heller isn’t averse to bringing in past characters, as seen with Jane’s brother in law Danny Ruskin, or with Lisbon’s brother Tommy, who appears as a bounty hunter.
If Heller is going to bring someone outside the current cast in to be Red John, it will have to be someone from Jane’s past. If that happens, we can see two likely “candidates.” The first would be a victim of one of his scams in his life as a “psychic.” This would fit into the storylines, and Heller could claim of having left more than enough clues.
The first clue would be that it happened before he joined the CBI, and that he was a criminal at the time. Heller was quoted as saying that Jane is “not fighting the Green River Killer; he’s fighting Moriarity.” This, of course, is in reference to Sherlock Holmes’s supposed “nemesis.” Professor Moriarity, though, doesn’t appear in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s books until what was supposed to be the last Sherlock Holmes book, called “The Final Solution.” In the book, both men fight and fall to their deaths, though the door was left slightly ajar.
Moriarity turned out to be a highly-educated person who runs a large international crime syndicate, while Holmes’ death turned out to have been faked. The reason the death was “faked,” was that Doyle either got bored, ran out of money, or probably both, and started writing Holmes books again.
