The Killing > The Killing Season Finale Review: And The Killer Is... > Comments Page 2
Why would anyone think that they would actually reveal the killer in the season finale? It was only thirteen episodes-do you really think it could have been as rewarding to be given a nice pat little ending and then let's move on? What's wrong with investing yourself in the program for awhile? Yes, it moves slowly, but that's part of what makes it intriguing. If more people had better attention spans instead of a need for instant gratification, a program like Rubicon would still be on whereas the vast majority of crap on TV now would not be.
I'm so angry and frustrated that I got a spoiler for you guys
Vagn was the killer in the original. He was the co-worker of the dad.
SO if the American version copies, it'll be Belko Royce.
But they aren't, so it's a mute point.
Here you go ppl, find some relief like Me :))
It was utterly disappointed...wasn't it was suppose to be like Swedish show.. every season, new killing? that's Pathetic of AMC just because viewers were eager to see what happened to Rosie Larson? they change the end and stretched it as lot of supporting actors like Michelle got nominations in awards.. su*k it AMC!
What other shows do I think are better? For starters: EVERY SINGLE SHOW ON AMC; which makes The Killing so much worse. Breaking Bad is the single best show on television. Mad Men is the epitome of drama. Walking Dead revolutionized what we knew about humanity. Remember Rubicon? Probably the most intelligent show ever written, but they canceled it. You hand me The Killing, I respond with any season of Dexter. I laugh at you for thinking this is the best show since LOST.
I think it was both fascinating AND frustrating! LOVE LOVE LOVE this show more than any other on tv! I watch and DVR every episode! I hope the councilman is just severely injured and not dead so that he can become mayor as soon as his name is cleared. First the teacher was beat almost to death when he didn't do anything, it would be beyond ashame if another person died for no reason related to Rosie's death. I KNEW there was something suspicious about Linden's new partner, but THAT took the cake! I LOVE that each episode only represents a single day! Definitely adds to the real-life feel of the show. I hope the first episode of the new season ties Rosie's murder up into a nice neat bow with the killer finally revealed and a new murder to solve leaving Linden to stay put, and Holder de-badged and in jail for falsifying evidence, and a new season of wtf happens now to follow along!
For those who complain and think the show is somehow "formulaic" and too slow, I have to laugh and wond
Final episode filled with more questions and even more sub-plots. I must say we loved the show until the very end. The cast is amazing and believable. Great storyline and we couldn't look away from every episode. However, AMC, you're taking a huge risk by disrespecting your audience. You insult us by not bringing this plot full circle. Do you really think we're all going to come back to watch 13 more episodes and still not find out who killed Rosie? Why would you EVER reveal the true killer? Do you honestly think if this case would have been solved in the last episode that no-one would come back to see what's new next season? You don't give us enough credit. Now my husband and I and probably lots of people will just check in once in a while and likely just read the comments on-line. Bet your advertisers will love that.
Hopefully the story will pick up its pace nothing more to say in my mind.....
I feel the same sentiments as Cranium7 and most of the other people who posted. To not have the "killer" revealed is truly a sucky deal. To the writers of the show you have to remember that alot of these shows today are fast paced with no real consistent storyline from week to week. But with "The Killing" we recognized what it was and supported the show for what it is...Even when you gave us that filler episode #11 - "Missing" (That one really hurt my feelings) but it was so close to what I thought would be a final wrap up of who killed Rosie, and what was looking to be a potentially great finale. Then you have Brent Sexton doing PR saying that the finale is so diabolical and what not, giving the impression that it would definitely hit us with a "BANG"
Instead all we got were "blue balls & an I.O.U."
Now I'm still going to watch the show, but now I'm watching with a some what bad taste in my mouth for having to wait for what I feel I've already paid my dues for.( Not part of the
My husband and I stayed up till midnight to watch this "last" show and find out who killed Rosie. Boy, were we disappointed. AMC advertised that this was a 13 week series and we'd follow the police investigation from start to finish in the 13 weeks. Now it's a cliff hanger and we have to watch again next weeks. Maybe we won't. It was an interesting premise, one hour = one day of police investigation but it tended to be very slow. I feel played and don't know if I will watch 13 more episodes to get a conclusion.
I guess that strange Holder's phone call now make sense.. Still disappointed though, Linden and Holder's interaction is what make me watch this show
What the hell? They led us to believe we would know who killed Rosie. I understand they have been renewed for a second season, but they should have wrapped the storyline up.Now I'm leftwondering who was in the car with Holder. Possibly Gwen's father? He doesn't like Richmond so he could have had him set up. Curse you writers!!
I was disappointed that the killer was not revealed (it would have been nice even if the viewers got the answer but the characters didn't) but, overall, I still like the series. As for Holder, I wonder if he even knew the photo was a fake? He has always had help from others on the force and he may think they pulled strings to get the toll tapes without knowing that they were forged. I hope it is something like that because I would like to see these two characters working together again. Just hope the second season comes soon so we don't have to wait too long...
Slogged through 13 episodes with no conclusion. So how am I supposed to believe that I won't be dragged into a 3rd feeling the same way? What a waste. Wake me up when you're ready to tell me who did it. Until then I'll read the brief.
The Killing was just as formulaic as they desperately claim not to be. Its a typical Law & Order episode, but dragged out to an entire season. Sure there is great characters with great arcs, but as for the mystery itself (the reason we watch): its pure drivel. Red Herring after red herring after red herring was thrown at us with anticlimactic resolves at the beginning of every episode. If they wanted to end with cliche twists as they did, there shouldve been some kind of build up. The "twists" made no sense! The fake photo? So what? One phone call and Richmond is a free man...at the cost of Holder's career! Why'd he do it? We know he's not stupid enough to really think that'll frame Richmond. To ruin his election? Why would he? We know he wants to do right by his son, so maybe it was for money; but we've learned he has too much character to ruin his life over money. Just more questions, but not the ones we want to be asking. And why did Linden, a seasoned detective, confront
No wonder AMC renewed the second season, if this is the series end, Gosh!!!
