“The Killing” season 2 is finally giving up some substantial clues into the death of Rosie Larson. Everyone remotely involved in the murder investigation, whether it’s Rosie’s family, the detectives investigating the case or a possible suspect has their life torn apart.
The show is grabbing the viewer’s attention to the point they can’t wait for the next week to roll around to see a new episode. The New York Daily News puts “The Killing” at the number four spot of the top 10 shows to watch this week. It beat out “Mad Men,” which is at number 5 and airs right after “The Killing” on AMC.
Detectives Linden and Holden’s lives are a mess from where they were when they started out with this investigation. It seems that the death of Rosie has turned into something big that may even involve the people with the highest power at the police department.
After Linden’s ordered to hand in her badge, this doesn’t stop her from staying on the job. Holder is still rebounding from the beating he got at the reservation where they left him for dead. He comes to the airport to help Linden say good-by to her son, who is going to stay with his father for a while, which has left her broken hearted.
With her son gone, Linden has all her time now to concentrate on this mystery unfolding around Rosie’s death. Because of all the friction and stumbling blocks that she’s gotten from her chief, one has to wonder just how far the tentacles of this crime of murder go.
The biggest clue handed to the fans of “The Killing” so far after a season and a half, is that the murder site is probably on the 10th floor of the casino on the reservation. What will happen to the police chief on the Indian reservation, will this crude and shrewd woman suffer any consequences for the near fatal beating she orchestrated on Holder?
It was sad to see Stan talking to all the people that phoned in tips about his daughter’s murder after he put out a reward. The psychic who tried to scam Stan out of money after leading him to believe Rosie said so many nice things about him, like she knew the girl when she was alive. His plan of a reward has done nothing but bring out greedy and crazy people so far.
Sunday night’s episode has Richmond lending his support to the investigation around Rosie’s death. Sarah Linden is on the trail of tracking down Rosie’s key that will get her into the 10th floor of the casino where Linden is sure Rosie met her demise. Stan is having some horrific problems with his son and he’s trying to deal with them this week.
