Goof: When Jane is picked up at the prison, Chevrolet Volt has headrests on the front seats. According to plot, couple of hours later, when driving way from Red John's house, headrests are gone, to give camera a good view of the dashboard (Chevy Volt promotional campaign).

Now You Know--Every episode title contains a reference to the color red, like "Paint it Red", "Scarlett Fever", "Russet Potatoes", or "Bloodshot". This is because Patrick Jane's nemesis is the ingenious sadistic serial killer, Red John.
