    Maybe they like doing it. Does everyone have to be like you?

    pretty sure the actress wasn't, as she didn't find out she was the killer until 2 hours before the table read for the episode. It also cracks me u that I have read a lot of people saying they thought she was guilty because of the way she was acting or things she said or did. If the actress had no clue, she obviously wasn't conveying those things to you, and if there was evidence that she was the killer, I would think she'd have caught on. She said she was completely surprised by the revelation, and it made her break down in tears.

    So you don't think the director of the episode instructed her how to act in that scene?

    Exactly. To suggest that the actress received little or no direction on how to act in previous scenes as well as the finale is ludicrous. She (Jamie Anne Allman, and most everyone on the show) are excellent actors...

    Also HERE is an interview with Jamie about the finale/series...

    Apparently not in such a way that she had a clue what she was doing...

    Season finale ratings:
    Breaking Bad - 1.897 million viewers - 1.0 18-49 rating
    Walking Dead - 8.991 million viewers - 4.7 18-49 rating
    Mad Men - 2.701 million viewers - 0.9 18-49 rating
    The Killing - 1.448 million viewers - 0.5 18-49 rating


    IMO, The Killing is not likely to be back next year.

    Did they ever explain why Rosie was depositing over $1k a week? At one time we were lead to believe she was involved in the prostitution ring, then it came out that she wasn't.

    And would she really make that much money from cleaning?

    I'm not so sure about that. It was generally critically acclaimed (even with haters like Sepinwall) and generated a LOT of media buzz. I'd be disappointed if it doesn't get at least one more season...


    EDIT: Although these percentages don't portend well for the show...the ratings were down 17 percent from the premiere and down 35 percent from its freshman finale.

    Count me in the minority. I really liked the first third of season 1. Then I became disappointed in the drop in quality but still enjoyed the show. This level of enjoyment continued until this episode. I thought it was the worst episode of the series, by far. The acting was fine and some of the scenes with the Larson family were actually pretty good, but all of the revelations were thin and most of the other characters behaved in seemingly arbitrary ways. My wife was more forgiving of this episode because she thought they might be writing it as a wrap-up for the series. Taken in that light, I guess it did accomplish that goal. Still, I was very disappointed in this episode.

    There were lots of plot holes.
    Did they ever explain why Stan's credit card was found in the woods?

    Wasn't Rosie planning on "running away" (not exactly the right term) to do something related to butterflies? I assumed maybe she grabbed the card as a means of paying for her journey?

    Yes, she was planning on going away, but it doesn't fit that she would steal her dad's credit card. I guess that's what we are supposed to believe though. Just another instance of bad writing on this show.

    I must say I thought the directing, cinematography and acting were great. But horrible writing.

    :confused: Why not? That would be perfectly logical (aside from revealing where's she would be when using it)...she would need the money if she didn't have enough saved...

    Wow. Great final, great acting. I'll really miss this show. Having a new Madmen and The Killing each week was a nice weekly treat of high end TV.

    It doesn't make sense because the video she made for her family showed she loved them and wasn't out to hurt them. And she left without telling them so she obviously wanted to break away from them start a new adventure and not be found. She had been planning it for a while. That's why her stealing the credit card is not logical and it is unconvincing writing.

    Simply do not agree. She could easily see taking the credit card as not hurting them, but just helping her on her trip. Just another way for her family to provide for her. Frankly, I don't see that taking the credit card would hurt her family unless she abused using it...it's not nearly as illogical and unconvincing as you claim.

    "Hey, act all guilty and stuff."

    "Ok. So I'm guilty?"


    If you read any of the interviews the actress has done, she watched dozens of murder confessions on youtube.
