  • Gwen is back to join the Richmond campaign.

  • At the Ames party the Mayor is meeting with the Indian chief from the casino.
  • Someone is staking out Holder’s place…….
Final Thoughts:
Its not a show for everyone, there are alot of suspects and questions that get answered with more questions. I personally love show, I love the depth of the characters and the stories. You don’t see on ANY other cop show that can do what this show is doing which makes the The Killing a very unique show to watch.
