Question: what if it wasn’t actually Red John who bumped off REDACTED last week, but someone else? Could it not be a(nother?) Tiger, Tiger or even another person spying on Jane like Kirkland did?
Just wondering. Not that this week’s episode or Jane himself entertains those possibilities. Nope, “Fire and Brimstone” has Patrick in obsessive, “eyes on the prize” mode, the prize being the man with the tattoo, whoever he may be. And the ep itself is just as sharp and focussed as Jane is: with guest appearances from the entire RJ Suspects Club, a Jisbon moment in the sunset which I’ve decided was heartfelt even if it was also incredibly manipulative (bad Jane!), and a fantastically tense last few minutes, it’s terrific. A quietly fraught, uneasy atmosphere throughout, a great performance from Simon Baker, and another few steps toward unmasking RJ: loved it.
