It probably goes without saying, but The k!lling’s central character is seldom seen. She is Rosie Larsen, the victim in question, and while we only catch snippets of Rosie in photos and video recordings, her influence is great. We’re watching the show for Rosie— if not to discover her k!ller, then at least to see how the other characters respond to and investigate her death.

This isn’t exactly new information—“Who k!lled Rosie Larsen?” was released as the show's tagline months before it premiered. But Sunday night’s episode highlighted the way in which a person can be present without physically being there. Rosie is, of course, the prime example: She’s the one person everyone is talking about, and when they aren’t, she’s the elephant in the room.

“I can’t compete with a ghost,” Rick told Sarah. “I can, but I won’t.” He recognized that once again, Linden was becoming too involved with a case, investing herself in a dead girl to the point of neglecting her own life. Rosie isn’t a ghost in the traditional sense, but she does seem to haunt these characters. And while it makes sense that she would dominate the thoughts of the parents she left behind and her friends at school, why has she taken hold of Linden? Is it just about getting the job done, or is there something more to it than that?

Of course, Rosie isn’t the only ghost. On Sunday we were presented with the idea of someone who is physically present but goes unseen. Sterling told Linden that no one noticed her when Rosie was around. She went into "The Cage" and let Jasper and Kris have s3x with her because she craved the attention. “Don’t you ever just want to feel like you’re here?” she asked. Of course, the bitter truth is that Sterling continues to be noticed in relation to Rosie. Later in the episode, she met Mitch in the hallway—the two shared a tearful hug. But then Mitch started asking Sterling about Rosie’s secret boyfriend. While the affection seemed sincere, Sterling’s value remained in relation to her best friend.

And finally, there’s the religious angle. Mitch and Stan visited their church, and Mitch took little comfort in knowing that, as the priest put it, Rosie is with God now. “She’s not supposed to be with God,” Mitch cried. “She’s supposed to be with me.” Again, we saw the importance of physical presence, which is absolute, and spiritual presence, which is impossible to prove. In the same way, Mitch lamented the fact that Rosie was alone when she died. “Tell me, where was God then?” she asked. It's really not my question to tackle, but there’s another example of a presence—one that dominates many people’s lives— without a concrete physical manifestation.

You may have noticed that I haven’t said much about Congressman Richmond; I’m not really sure how he fits into the big picture. His story picked up this week, but aside from the stolen car and the potential political ramifications of Rosie’s murder, I’m not seeing the real connection. That isn’t a complaint, as I’m sure it will become clearer in the coming weeks, but I do feel a little guilty leaving him out. So okay, how about the revelation that Jamie is still working for Richmond and playing both sides? That took me by surprise. Discuss.

Yea he was on my radar too but they got him early so I'd a.ssume its not him. The dad's friend is on the suspect list on the show website . Hopefully I'm wrong and its not him. He's just barely around so most ppl won't figure he did it. The babysitter is barely around now too.

Pretty good episode.

The teacher is way to obvious, though, k!ller definitely isn't going to be him.

Interested in seeing what the dad is gonna do when they find out that the teacher is a suspect though .

I think the person who did it, has not been featured in the show yet but is linked to a few characters in the show. Also I wonder what they are going to do in future seasons...probably have a new victim and sh*t?
Yeah,probably one k!lling per season.

---

This episode was dope as hell i agree it can't be Bennet because that sh*t is too obvious,but the fact the girl DID have those chemicals in her system does raise an eyebrow,....

..Maybe bennet,sterling and ol' girl were having a threesome and Sterling got jealous....

They have interviewed the cast and asked them if there would be a second season and none of the cast knows yet.

Imo I don't know if a second season would work. I mean, the parents who are easily two of the best characters on the show would not really have a place in a season about a new k!lling. The entire cast of characters from the school would be irrelevant unless there was another k!lling at the same school.

I wouldn't mind if they ended it after one season as long as they plan it that way. I never have problems with shows having short runs, as long as they aren't cancelled and they are allowed to go out on their own terms with their own planned ending rather than a rushed one.

Although if they figured out how to make a season 2 work, depending on how the rest of this season plays out, I might be interested. But I do think it would go downhill fast if they decided to make this a multiple season affair.

I've read that season 2 might be about the same case, just the next step in the process, this season is finding and arresting the k!ller, next season could be about the trial of the k!ller.





also my guess as of now for the k!ller is the dad's friend/coworker.


now i have no idea of a motive yet, but him being so adamant about finding out who the suspect is at the school, and wanting to take care of the candidate earlier, combined with the coroner guy saying the k!ller knew what he was doing i think its him.

For real. That's how I felt after the first episode.

"The girl who made that wasn't the pink-bedroom type." - Sarah Linden

How well do we know anyone? Can we ever truly know our spouses, our children? The Rosie Larsen that we seen illuminated in her bedroom--the pink walls, that butterfly motif--is dramatically at odds with the Rosie who shot the Super 8 video that Bennet Ahmed shares with Linden and Holder: it's a much darker Rosie, a truer Rosie. This isn't a little girl capturing the easiness of carefree youth. She sees the skull beneath the skin, even as we see a flock of butterflies connect with Rosie as one of their own.

In this week's episode of The k!lling ("Super 8"), written by Jeremy Doner and directed by Phil Abraham, we begin to see that Rosie may not have been as innocent and wholesome as her parents believe her to be. While her teacher Bennet maintains that their relationship wasn't s3xual, that the letters were an "intellectual discourse," the possibility that Rosie may have been involved with him skews our image of the victim.

And then there's Bennet. He maintains his own innocence in Rosie's death and in their relationship, which he says was purely professional. But he also doesn't have an alibi for the night of Rosie's death: he tells the cops that he returned home after the dance and his pregnant wife was staying with her sister as their floors were being refinished. (He claims that the company canceled the installation at the last minute.) Bennet is being very helpful--he gives them the Super 8 film Rosie shot--but is he being a little too helpful? Is he trying to distance himself from the frame? After all, he did have access to the Richmond campaign cars...

And then there's the final act reveal that links Rosie to Bennet once more, courtesy of the ammonium hydroxide found in her system. Rosie's toxology came back without signs of drugs or alcohol in her system but did show the presence of ammonium hydroxide, which could account for the lack of evidence of s3xual a.ssault and lack of any fibers, tissue, or blood under her nails if she fought her attacker.

And who just happens to have a stash of ammonium hydroxide laying around? Bennet Ahmed, as the substance is used in flooring installation. So is Bennet a pro, as Linden suggests? Or is it an unhappy coincidence? Did he use the stuff to cover up his crime? Or was Rosie there at the apartment, helping him install the floor? And why did Bennet cancel the appointment for the following day? Curious...

And then there's Bennet's wife Amber, pregnant with his child. Intriguingly, Amber was once one of Bennet's students and she has a strange and slight similarity, in terms of appearance, to Rosie. Amber says that Bennet often wrote her letters, encouraging her to achieve her dreams. But while that's innocent enough--she claims nothing untoward occurred between them--there's something odd about history repeating itself. He married one of his former students, so why couldn't he have designs on Rosie as well?

This week's episode also continued to show the effect that Rosie's death has had on her family. While we don't have Rosie narrating the plot from beyond the grave, a la The Lovely Bones, her presence--or lack thereof--is keenly felt in everything the family does from Denny's pyjama-clad trip to the store t get some milk to Tommy's bed-wetting incident, as he conceals his urine-soaked pyjamas and sheets in the trash. (I loved the scene where Belko found proof of Tommy's incident and, rather than take it to Stan, furtively bed Tommy's bed with fresh sheets and revealed that he had a bed-wetting problem well into his teens.)

(I loved the scene where Belko found proof of Tommy's incident and, rather than take it to Stan, furtively bed Tommy's bed with fresh sheets and revealed that he had a bed-wetting problem well into his teens.)

Mitch, meanwhile, experiences a terrible sense of frisson when she sees Denny in the bath, his hair dripping onto the floor. It's a reminder of not only Rosie's horrific end but also that scene in the morgue where she and Stan had to identify their daughter's corpse, her hair streaming out underneath her, rivulets of water dripping into a puddle on the floor. Mitch's freak-out is indicative of psychic damage of the highest order, an inability to separate Rosie's death from their quotidian lives: everything has new meaning, new symbolism now.

What is up with Holder? While he claims he won at gambling, there's something shady about that envelope of cash he receives on the street... and which he places in the mailbox of a house. Are those his wife and kids inside? And why won't he go in or say anything to them? Is our copper sidekick a junkie who is supporting his family from afar? Hmmm...

The various storyline threads also came together a bit this week as Darren Richmond and Mitch Larsen crossed paths in the grocery store. While Darren makes it seem as though this was a chance encounter, it's anything but that, an engineered effort to contain the Rosie Larsen story, which is damaging Darren's campaign chances. But Richmond refuses to use Mitch for his own political ends. He understands the depths of grief and despair, from his own experiences with his wife's death. When a cereal box reminds Mitch acutely of her daughter's passing, Darren a.ssures her that it gets better.

Elsewhere in the political sphere, we learn that Yitanes herself had engineered the leak within the campaign, planting a spy within the organization, and had used Darren's communications director, Nathan, to leak details from the campaign from within... and likely sow discontent among Darren's aides. It's Jamie who learns of this from Lesley Adams, whom he believed to be the one pulling the strings. (Interestingly, I thought Jamie may have been an alcoholic from his choice of bottled water at the bar, but here Jamie pukes his guts up after drinking too much with Adams and Abani, claiming that he's not used to drinking.) And Gwen seems to have a few secrets of her own: she slept with the commercial director whom she wants to use for Richmond's latest television ad... and she used to work for Yitanes. Plus, there's her powerful Senator father who has an agenda of his own.


Who to trust? No one it seems. The closer Linden and Holder to unmasking Rosie's k!ller, the more secrets they kick up... and these two have skeletons of their own to contend with, making The k!lling even more twisty and revealing as the episodes go on.

All signs point to the teacher. Can it be that obvious, though? I'm not so sure.

Another solid episode, though. Good show. Looking forward to seeing wtf happens with the dad and the teacher next week.
