The Red John storyline has taken so many twists and turns since last season’s epic finale that that storyline has largely taken a back seat to other fun capers. But that won’t be the case all season. In fact, Daniel Cerone, executive producer and writer of next week’s “Fugue in Red,” tells me this week’s episode, which will find Jane reverting to his con-man ways after an accident, will "reframe who Red John is in the life of our character" and ultimately set the stage for a second half of the season that will see more action from this fan-favorite storyline.
"[This] will definitely ramp up toward the end of the season more than the middle part, but we do have a nice build,” he says. “We’ve introduced this character, Darcy, who is investigating the supposed reemergence of Red John, but the more time that she spends with Jane, the more suspicious she’s going to become of him. So that investigation into Red John is going to take many twists and turns before the end of the season."
Meanwhile, loyal reader Rebecca wrote in asking for scoop on Cho and his new CI, Summer. Happy to hear of the positive response to Summer, Cerone offered up, "Cho is such a mystery man because he has a very stoic exterior," he says. "So we thought it would be fun to create a character who could try to get under that and, you know, opposites attract. So we wanted to find both a character and an actress who were sort of completely random and untethered as possible just to see what would occur. So far, it’s been a lot of fun because there is natural chemistry between them."
