    I had high hopes for this show but it's really starting to drag. I'm close to ffwding through every scene featuring the Larsen family. I know they're grieving but I don't need to grieve too. And now Granny Larsen showed up to make Mitch even more miserable.

    Linden has the worst boss in the world. Even Ebeneezer Scrooge would have finally terminated her employment and sent her off to get married by now.

    I'm actually liking the political scenes of the show. At least they seem to be going somewhere. Where I don't know.

    I thought Linden was a good cop. Breaking into the store and the refrigerators there was something I'd expect the crackhead cop to do, not her.

    I think the whole thing is very well done. We've been spoiled by 1 hour wrap-ups. In my opinion this is what good story telling, good acting, good pacing and good tv look like.

    I thought this was another excellent episode....not dragging as far as I'm concerned.

    I don't think it's dragging, either.

    The thing I like about it is that it isn't a typical hour long procedural. While the plot is about a murder investigation, the show is more character driven. The characters are well written and well acted.

    I am really enjoying it.

    This was more of a table setter episode. No big explosions but lots of little things. I look forward to this show each week.

    Disagree completely with the OP- to me, this is one of the best shows on television today bar none, and the pace of the show is one of the things that makes it so great.

    I'm really enjoying the show too, but this episode really didn't do much for me. It will be interesting to see how the Richmond campaign is eventually tied to the murder investigation.

    I'm a little confused about the slip of paper Linden got with the "106R Renton" address on it. Where did that slip of paper come from?

    And I'll be interested to see what it is that the FBI was investigating and what Linden and Holder found in that walk-in.

    I am pretty sure it was in the Quran.

    The one Linden got from Bennet's wife? If so, why did she run outside just after talking to the Imam at the mosque? That's when she first noticed the paper, right? I assumed someone must have slipped her the paper then and she ran outside to see if she could see who it was, but that whole scene was a little unclear to me.

    I thought somebody put the paper in her shoe while her back was turned.

    That makes more sense. I'll have to go back and rewatch that scene when I get home tonight.

    yup, the message was definitely left in the shoe. Not that I saw anyone leave it, just saw Linden find it there.

    Someone in the Mosque left it in her shoe - the last person they showed leaving in the background was a woman...
