    Holder was a message sent to Linden also...not just what he knew

    Nevertheless, it shows that Jackson is capable of nearly killing someone for very little reason. Of the three from the elevator, I think it is beyond a doubt that Jackson would be capable of killing Rosie. I think it is very likely that Michael Ames would do it (or have someone do it for him) -- his character is not well developed, but from what others have said about him, he seems like a ruthless guy. Jamie is the only one that seems to me not capable of killing Rosie. I suppose they could introduce some new twist that could make him seem more ruthless, but that would be a bit of a cheat.

    Linden did speculate that there was more than one killer. Maybe Jamie was taking Rosie somewhere (not intending to kill her) when she ran away. Then perhaps someone else chased her through the woods and eventually caught and killed her (but the Richmond campaign car Rosie was drowned in complicates that line of thought).

    I just hope they nail Jackson. She is stealing from the tribe and is a ruthless jack hole.

    Wiki, in its recap, says the old man is Jamie's grandfather.

    That was what I thought since they were joking about him living with him. But then I thought the apartment looked way too shabby to be Jamie's. :confused:

    My guess is that there is a lot we don't know about Jamie.

    I found this show on Netflix a few weeks ago, and now I'm totally caught up. I enjoy it a lot, though I wish they would do one case per season. I think the Larson case has dragged on too much. It was funny to read the threads here for season one after I had already watched it. Everyone was so sure things would be wrapped up at the end of the season, I couldn't wait to see the responses to the finale :D.

    Holder is a good character, and the actor does a great job. I find Linden to be pretty annoying, especially as the series has progressed. I wish they would make her more likeable. Toward the beginning of the series, I was really rooting for her, but now I just tend to roll my eyes at her strange actions and behavior.

    Agreed. I'd almost expect that Jamie's room in that house is a shrine to Richmond, with pictures of him plastered on the walls, indicating Jamie was obsessed with the man. The thing is, they already kind of did that with the Larson family friend who shot himself, so it would be kind of strange to do it again.

    The red herring formula for this show would indicate that Jamie is not the killer, but there's a lot of evidence linking him: campaign car, elevator camera, bloody card. I'm looking forward to seeing how it all shakes out.

    The problem is it'd be weird for there to be another big case right after this case assigned to the same people.

    So they'd have to change cities, and as we've seen in shoes like Heroes and Glee, even though thery may plan to recycle the cast, they come in with good ratings, and nobody wants to change anything.

    The next case will be in season three. They can easily say that it's been a while since the Larsen case was solved, in which case it wouldn't be right after. Anyway, it's a TV show, who cares if them getting the next big case isn't realistic?

    More realistic to me (a total layman and not involved in law enforcement) would be that they have several cases they are working on at relatively the same time. Not that they would need to be showing them working on more than one case, but it seems to me detectives probably don't only work exclusively on one case from start to finish - especially something that drags out over weeks.

    I also didn't stay at a Holiday Inn, so I could be totally off base here.

    The thing I don't understand is why the mayor was so anxious for Linden to be taken off the scene until after the election. If he didn't have anything to do with Rosie's murder, why did he want her investigation derailed so badly---he even went so far as to offer a bribe to Linden's Lt.

    For that matter, why did one of Richmond's aides (Jaime or Gwen) even have a city hall pass in the first place? And why was there a room at city hall filled with Richmond signs?

    (I'll bet that there aren't any rooms at the White House filled with pro-Romney signs...)

    Isn't Richmond a city councilman? Maybe his city council office is located in City Hall.

    I think you're right. OK, that makes more sense. What about the whole mayor-wants-to-shut-down-Linden thing?

    If the writers wrap this up in a consistent way, I will be very impressed. But I doubt it can be done.
