Okay, so most of the contestants refrained from giving a firm opinion one way or another; naughty, naughty 🙂
However, a number of excellent theories were presented placing the likely suspects (and some new ones) in even more suspicion. So I’m just going to list them so readers can vote. I allowed for multiple voting so you can choose more than one culprit should you wish to do so. I also left an option blank so those who didn’t get a chance to share before can do so now.
Since there are still a few days left before the next episode, I decided it was a good time to play a little game to tide us over:
Mentalist fans and blog readers, write down your answers and theories (as comments to this post) regarding who you think killed Todd Johnson (and is therefore Red John’s accomplice). You can give as much detail as you like to support your answer or none at all. After the next episode airs (March 31st), I will set up a poll (on this post) so that other readers can vote on which they think is the most plausible answer. The poll will remain open until the show officially clears the mystery (probably in the season finale). It will be very interesting to see which theory was the closest to the actual answer.
The prize? Gloating rights, of course! I will also twitter the results to The Mentalist official twitter account. Speaking of which, I have it on the authority of Karl Sonnenberg (Police and Medical Technical Advisor for the show) that the next episodes will be very exciting (i.e. thrillers). You have been warned 🙂
Now you have until the 31st. Start writing and don’t be shy 😉
And here’s the promo for the next episode The Red Mile if you’re interested.
