I disagree. We've needed this episode for a long time. Every good show has to spend time on good character development and they've been putting it off and putting it off and finally they just decided to do it all in one episode. I think Holder had more words in this episode than he's had cumulatively all season. We got to learn so much about Holder and Linden.

I wouldn't be surprised if Holder got suspended for a few days w/o pay for just being way too awesome. The line about cats was priceless. Also the VM that he left for his sister was very well done. I felt really proud and sad for him at the same time.

She's looked pretty boanable in every shot where she's been alive. Would you take her or Laura Palmer?

-1.

We may have needed this episode, but not when its 2 eps from the end.
imo this was a needless waste of time and threw a stumbling block in front of what (little) momentum the show had towards the finale.

EXACTLY. I got more excited about the 15 second preview of the next episode than I did for this entire one.

I would have rather had a sprinkling of character development in every episode, not an entire wasted sunday night's worth it. What a waste.

Plus, we already knew that ladycop was a bad mom. Not exactly a news flash.

worst episode ever. can't believe they would devote an entire episode to finding the kid. i guess they're trying to draw parallels to Rosie's parents having their child missing? either way, they should have made this an episode sub-sub-sub-plot if anything. now it appears they're just drawing this show out for another season, sadly.

If there are only two episodes left, I don't see how they can resolve the murder this season without it appearing totally rushed and contrived compared to the pacing of the earlier shows. Although on second thought, maybe it will stay unsolved. From Salon's review:
Quote:
Considering that season 1 of "The Killing" has just a couple more episodes to go, this was a bold choice. Between the seemingly off-center nature of the script and all the chit-chat between Detectives Linden (Mireille Enos) and Holder (Joel Kinnaman) about parental responsibility and mistakes, it made me think that in its home stretch, at least, maybe this series does know where it's going (or finally figured it out). Maybe its endpoing will bring everything back around to the relationship between Rosie Larsen and her immediately family, and confirm that what's important here isn't who killed Rosie, but why she was trying to get away from her family, or escape their influence, or establish some other, secret identity -- and how Rosie's estrangement illuminates the other characters' problems, if in fact it does. It seems important (and not accidental) that both Linden and Holder are estranged from their parents and from their present-day families.

I think the danish one went into 2 seasons.

I don't know how they were actually aired (if there was much of a gap) but the 20 episodes are split into two seasons on the torrent sites where I got the subbed versions.

If they don't wrap this up this season I'm going to have a hard time tuning in for next.

I suppose you could just watch the danish one

I have not finished it yet and have not been watching the AMC version (just read through this thread) but I would assume the killer will be the same/similar character in both.

^ am curious to know how the danish version sizes up against this one, although it's pretty safe to assume it will be worlds better than the remake. i might just end up watching the original if they drag this one out another season, i don't wanna wait another year to find out.

I have 5 episodes left in the danish version (out of 20 total for the first crime) and so far I have been really enjoying it--very good show.

I have been watching the BBC version with hard coded subs. There is an original broadcast version out there too but the available subtitle files are questionable (and without knowing better, I would assume BBC had high-quality subs made before broadcasting it).

I am not sure if I will pick up the next crime (I don't even know if it has the same characters) as I don't really need more TV to watch and I don't want to wait around for the BBC to air it to get quality subs.

Precisely. They were playing catch up on characterization they should have been doing the whole time -- or not done at all. There's nothing wrong with leaving a character's past murky.
