Thoughts from those who are still watching? Thought the end of episode 2 was pretty shocking and then the revelation that it was Sterling and that she had one of her nose bleeds was kind of surprising, but her explanation to what was going on with Rosie in the months leading up to her death kind of said a lot about their relationship. I like how they're integrating some traces that Rosie's presence is still there, whether it be the answering machine message or the Halloween party video.

I saw that it got renewed and it made me glad that there are still networks that write scripted shows......

And last nights' episode......... HOLY COW!

Next week's season finale will be the fastest hour of TV I will have ever watched.

That's great news about it getting renewed. I find myself absolutely riveted by this show, even if the story/atmosphere make me want to step in front of a bus sometimes. This show has a real knack for creating a super intense vibe, and I've been consistently impressed by the acting across the entire cast.

HOLY COW, indeed! That was a wild ride. Can't wait for the finale.

Between The Killing, Mad Men, Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, AMC kicks some serious dramatic ass.

I agree, AMC seems to be hitting a log of home runs recently.

I think so too.  It would seem odd to play all your cards in the second to last episode.

Okay, did not see THAT coming.    I've been doing my best to avoid all things related the Dutch show, and apparently that is a good thing or it would be spoiling all these curves.

Yeah, more spoiler comments

The ending basically opened up a whole new mystery.

Great show, I am pleased that AMC lets people do shows like this.   How long would this have lasted on Fox?

This show seems to be cutting audiences right down the middle. I either here that people love it or hate it. Mostly everyone agrees that the first few episodes were great. I'm kind of in the middle. I still enjoy it but not nearly as much as I did in the beginning. Especially in the battle of the Sunday shows, when Game of Thrones got going, it wasn't really a contest.

Four episodes.  ;D

That's a bit surprising to hear. I think the show's only gotten stronger with each episode.

I love both of these shows, but for different reasons. For me, Game of Thrones is a big, epic, fantastic sexy soap opera while The Killing is a much more low-key (yet no less intense) emotional, mysterious drama. One thing's for sure, I find them both equally compelling.
