Bennett is alive! Well, kind of. He’s in the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital and will probably end up dying from the beating old Stan Larsen put on him. In other ‘The Killing’ news, Belko Royce is as nutty as they come.
The scariest thing about episode ‘I’ll Let You Know When I Get There’ is meeting Belko’s cougar mom, who seems to be running completely on cigarettes and moth balls. When Holder and Linden visit Belko’s home, they find a creepy Rosie collage on his ceiling, but it turns out to be just another red herring. They’re no closer to solving this case than when the season started. Will they ever solve it?
Meanwhile, Stan spends his time languishing in jail while thinking about the stupid mistake he made. Mitch has to take over the everyday operations of the family moving business, where she finds out that the family now has no money at all. Could this be because of Stan’s gambling problems?
Speaking of gambling, Linden finally puts some pieces together and figures out what the mysterious key chain matches. It’s a casino’s logo. What’s inside that casino? I assume that the key goes to a locker, or maybe a room? Who knows? It’s a nice cliffhanger to leave us on. Even though Linden and Holder aren’t any closer to naming a suspect in the case, the last few scenes give us a little bit of hope that they’re actually going to solve this thing.
I still enjoy each episode of ‘The Killing’, but it’s getting a little redundant. The ending montages are starting to get old. The show’s theme music plays as each character is shown staring longingly off into the distance. I don’t know, it’s just getting a little tiresome.
Other Random Thoughts:
- Are they trying to intentionally mislead us about Stan and his gambling problems? Or did he really gamble away the family’s money?
- Does Richmond know more about Rosie than he’s letting on? That footage of him shaking her hand looks curious – like it was more than just a happenstance meeting.
- Will Linden ever leave? It seems like her relationship with her fiancé is deteriorating by the second. I think she’s doomed to live a life of loneliness if she can’t let her job go.
- Holder has a Sawyer-like gift for nicknames. “Rat Boy” made me laugh.
