Recently, emphasis on the psychological motivations of Batman villains have painted them in a much more sympathetic light than in their earlier stories, most notably Mr. Stephanie adopts the moniker of Spoiler in order to capture her criminal father the Cluemaster , and she assists Batman and Robin in his arrest. Spoiler later helps Robin out during several missions, saving his life once and, in thanks, he gives her a kiss.
After that, she begins to regularly patrol the city with Robin, and they develop a mutual crush even though he is dating Ariana which Stephanie does not know.
They start dating after Tim breaks up with Ariana, but he doesn't reveal his real identity to her. Batman ultimately reveals Tim's real identity to Stephanie, which upsets Tim, who storms out on them when he finds out. Regardless, they continue dating until she fakes her death at the end of Batman: War Games.
Later, when they're Red Robin and Batgirl, Tim tries to restart their relationship, but Stephanie rejects him because he wasn't good for her. In the DC Rebirth continuity, they are in a relationship once again.

This angered McAllister and that night, he went to Jane's house and killed his wife and daughter painting the toenails of Jane's wife with her own blood as a "special gift" for Jane , leaving a note on the door of the room explaining his motives:. Red John's letter to Jan pinned on the bedroom door where he killed Jane's family. Dear mister Jane, I do not like to be slandered in the media, especially by a dirty money-grubbing fraud. If you were a real psychic, instead of a dishonest little worm, you wouldn't need to open the door to see what I've done to your lovely wife and child. Jane returned home to find the note and the bodies of his wife and daughter.
Subsequently, he suffered a breakdown and was admitted to a psychiatric facility, which he left after six months to join the CBI in order to find and take revenge on Red John, becoming his most lasting and ferocious adversary ever since. Between and , Red John murdered eight more unnamed women; his 13thst victims and probably the last murdered without any specific reason all his subsequent victims had to do with "internal issues", tauntings, or clashes with Patrick Jane, rather than the work of a serial killer properly speaking.
In , a young man and alcoholic named Michael Kirkland joined Red John as one of his accomplices, and then went missing.
Although it was never proved, his twin brother Robert Kirkland thought that Red John had killed him, and so he began to hunt down RJ out of revenge, much like Jane did. McAllister noted that Lorelei was emotionally unstable and wanted her to become his accomplice, but he needed tragedy to befall on Lorelei to be able to "rescue" her, like he had done with Michael and his problems with alcohol, and with the vast majority of his known associates.
However, Lorelei's sister Miranda was a constant support for Lorelei, so McAllister kidnapped Miranda with the help of his followers Julia Howard and Jason Lennon , and later raped her and let her die in an abandoned warehouse. Lorelei then became depressed and McAllister used this to manipulate her and make her join him. Before dying, Miranda carved on the floor the word "Roy", accusing McAllister, but this detail was not revealed by the police and wouldn't be discovered until some years later. Red John then calls Jane to torment him, laughing at Jane's failure to catch him. When Rebecca is caught and arrested, he poisons Rebecca before she can reveal his true identity.
Red John finally appears again in the season 2 finale. For the first time since the pilot episode, the viewer is able to see the killer in the flesh, wearing a black cloak, cowboy boots, and a grotesque transparent mask that distorts his face. During the season 3 finale, after Red John's accomplice Craig O'Laughlin is killed while trying to kill Hightower in her mountain cabin hideout, Jane who is in a food court in a Sacramento mall has Lisbon use the redial on O'Laughlin's phone and tell whomever answers that O'Laughlin is dead.
An average looking gentleman played by Bradley Whitford sitting in the food court near Jane answers his phone. Jane, seeing this, has Lisbon tell him what the person she called said to her. It's the same thing that the man in the food court said, so Jane confronts him. The man first denies it, but moments later drops hints that he is Red John, keeping Jane at a safe distance by subtly pointing a revolver hidden inside a folded newspaper at him.
Jane, however, is still skeptical, and confronts the man again as he tries to leave, only for him to reveal to Jane details of the murders of his wife and daughter, specifically, what they smelled like. This sends Jane over the edge, and he calls after the man, then guns him down with a weapon hidden in his coat pocket. Jane then sits down and calmly sips tea while waiting to be arrested, apparently satisfied that this man was indeed Red John.
It is revealed in the season 4 premiere, Scarlet Ribbons , that Ron Deutsch , the bald security guard who apprehended Jane at the mall, stole the revolver "Red John" had hidden in the newspaper as well as the cell phone that connected him to O'Laughlin. It was also revealed that the man was named Timothy Carter , a child abductor living with a fake identity.
In the following episode, Jane brings Rosalind - the blind woman with whom Red John had a relationship - to the coroner's office to examine the body. She feels Timothy's face,and reveals that it was not the Red John she knew. Possibly Red John's car near the funeral of Tom Maier. It seems to be a Dodge.
In the circle the driver's face is visible. It looks Lorelei's Enforcer. In Red Dawn we take a look at the early beginnings of Patrick and the CBI, in a flashback; towards the end of the episode, during a telephone conversation between Virgil Minelli and FBI Agent Alexa Shultz , a man named Robert Kirkland , as he's named in the episode's credits rides with Alexa and thanks her when she arranges with Minelli to get frequent updates on the Red John Case. Towards the end of the episode, Lorelei states "God you're just like him Red John , you know that?
Relentless manipulation I only wonder why the two of you didn't become lifelong friends the moment you shook hands" this indicates that the two have met but are not close. Really, Kirkland is searching revenge for his brother's death missing and presumably killed by Red John. Patrick consults his notebook of Red John suspects. In The Red Barn it's revealed that Red John, in his youth, was a Visualize member, and killed two men of this cult on a farm.
Jane narrows down his suspect list to seven names. His final seven suspects for Red John are revealed:. When the case is closed, Patrick receives a DVD from the killer, through another Red John accomplice, which contains a message read to him by Lorelei before her death months prior to the episode's events.
