    I may have missed this thanks to sleeping through half of the season but, in the end was Rosie working for Beau Soleil or not? Wasn't Richmond supposed to be one of her clients? What was her connection to the site? Did she just get involved because she found out about her aunt?

    Loved the reveal of the killer, the rest of the episode was a bitter disappointment but I did like that Richmond seems to have heeded Jaime's words and accepted that his is not a "good guy" but instead a garden variety politician who does what's in his own best interest

    Wow, judging by the amount of replies here, it seems the show has lost most of its viewers and fans during season 2. It's no wonder really: The second season really did drag everything out way too much, and looking back on the two seasons, much of it was red herrings and filler. I did like the depth of the characters and the genuine emotion in the writing, but the main plot (which looked so promising during season 1) turned out to be quite mediocre after all, in my opinion.


    What I felt was most weird about the finale was Terry driving the car into the water. I don't see what her motivation was, and why / how she kept silent about it afterwards. She didn't know it was Rosie at the time, but she must have known someone was in there right?

    @Geertvdheide: Terry was going away with Ames who was leaving his wife. Ames' wife had all the money but his under-the-table deal with the Kulamish Nation Chief Nicole Jackson & Richmond's campaign manager Jamie to build a casino down on the waterfront (all tax free) after Richmond was elected would give him his own millions so he could actually leave his wife for Terry. While waiting in the car, Terry heard the argument and since the deal was now out of the bag Ames would loose his construction gig and be penniless without his wife. Once the secret project was made public, Richmond's campaign would be doomed. Ames wasn't willing to kill the girl in the trunk so he told Jamie "I'm not leaving my wife" - basically putting an end to the secret Richmond waterfront project & his affair with Terry and saying to let the girl loose. Terry would lose Ames so she went over to the car, put it in drive and gave it a push into the water. Terry didn't care about the "nameless" person in the trunk, all she wanted was to be with Ames. After she found out it was Rosie she had no idea what to do so she did and said nothing. Remember her reaction to Ames in the limo when he said he wasn't leaving his wife - I don't think he could forgive Terry for making the decision he wasn't willing to make.

    That does make some sense at least, thanks for clearing it up. It would have been more believable if we'd seen Terry's love for Ames a bit more. We've seen so little of that connection that it's hard to believe she'd kill for him. Still, that is what happened.

    This has most likely been the last we see of The Killing. I thought the first season was one of the best pieces of crime tv ever, coming close to the level of The Wire and Breaking Bad. Season 2 didn't hold my interest as well as the first did and I think a third season would feel weird, whether it would be about catching Jackson / Ames or about a new case entirely. The characters have finished a major arc here, so I think the show will be cancelled or ended. If not, we'll see how it ends up

    ^ I thought the Terry thing was a bit abrupt myself. It was a good twist but knowing the character of Terry, she probably would have actually/more realistically broken down at some point. I mean she was at the Larsen household for over 2 weeks, helping out. Passing by Rosie's room, taking care of the two kids, looking Stan in the eye even after knowing what she did? A little off to me. Mitch's face was classic horror though. Jaw-dropping on my end.
