    So, still a potboiler. Nothing blew up and nobody went nuts, but I was totally engrossed the whole time. The show just runs so much better now than last year. It just really flows so much better.

    Michelle Forbes just really kills it with her scenes. I did not realize how good an actress she is.

    And, the killer still remains unknown. We all thought we knew who the killer was, but now I'm not so sure. The lens keeps passing between those involved, and each one seems guilty at some point, but then something shows up that suggests they're not. I'm betting this might be the way a real investigation might go - as you explore each suspect, you see how they could be guilty, but somehow the pieces don't quite fit.

    More later. Nice episode.

    Did the father get that kid to say that he sent the text or did Rosie send the text? :)

    What was Stan doing outside those people's home? Isn't he in enough trouble already?!

    And yeah, I felt the dad made his son tell that story. Not to mention he must have something on Linden/Holder's superior.

    The kid certainly has enough disdain for his father to have sent the text. But who knows once you involve a good team of lawyers as they appeared to do they could come up with any logical excuse. Have we seen any evidence that Rosie is capable of blackmail? I'm not sure. She certainly was headed in a bad (or perhaps better termed dangerous) direction but was she doing it with good or bad intent?

    On a different note I love how week after week someone keeps pointing out to Holder things like does he not realize he's white and last weeks Slim Shady reference.

    I didn't catch the dialogue between Mitch and the girl when they were in bed. Can someone tell me what was said? It was just a few lines.

    Have we seen David Ranier, the name on the envelope at the end? I'm bad with names.

    Yes it was David's name and appears to be an unsent letter about Rosie. I think the dialogue was just stuff like your mother loves you, call your mother, there was a little creepy hair touching and the girl asked her if being there was OK or something like that.

    Yeah, this is the second episode in a row with a creep-me-out scene. Last week is was Stan kissing his sister-in-law...

    The creep-o-meter goes up each week with The Killing...

    I know what the letter was, I was asking if we have seen the character named David yet.

    What did Mitch say when the girl asked if it was OK? "OK" was the only word I caught.

    I was expecting something to happen with Stan and the sis-in-law last season. When Mitch left I've been expecting that.

    Mitch said something like "no, let's just lie here awhile".

    I don't remember a David, either. Part of the problem with this extended arc is that I've forgotten a lot of what happened last season.

    I don't remember a David from S1, and, from all I've read on the interweb, this is someone who has previously not been identified...

    This show isn't going to get a season 3 I would imagine.

    I still enjoy it, even though it was a major mistake to drag this case another season. Everyone knew it last year except the show's producers for some reason.

    That's good. I'm glad the writers are not counting on me to remember him - like they were for the boyfriend's dad. I had no idea who he was when he was in the car with Mitch's sister.

    As for the odd bed scene. I was creeped out as well. Because I'm pretty sure the girl was asking if touching her was ok. Like she was an escort asking if it was time to do her "real" job. I've been getting the escort/working girl vibe from the start - so perhaps I'm reading into it too much.

    I am relieved. I didn't remember David either.

    This was my thought about what she was doing as well.

    I got the feeling Mitch was trying to pretend Rosie was embodied in the girl. I felt that since we first caught glimpse of her on the highway and she sorta resembled Rosie. It's still creepy either way. I can sort of see a scene coming where the girl (what's her name anyway?) angrily declares to Mitch, "I'm not your dead daughter!"

    Has Mitch told the girl about her daughter? I confess I don't pay close attention during this show. I thought the girl had no idea why she was being nice to her, and assumed she wanted sex, since that's her frame of reference.

    Is Mitch just running away, or is she actually investigating someone or something in connection with the murder?

    Linden is just way too obsessed. The show would be better if everyone was slightly more believable. And why is the politician pretending he never was depressed even for an instant. That's totally impossible, and he could have gotten more sympathy if he told his true reaction.

    That's a story point, however...her superiors keep talking about that other time she got way too obsessed.

    The original Danish show first series on the Rosie case was 20 episodes an hour a piece (meaning without commercials).

    The first season of the US version was 13 episodes so I think EVERYONE knew it was going to get a second season :)
