What I’m Watching: The Killing

The Killing: Season 4, Episode 5 “Truth Asunder” (C)

With just one episode left in this entire series (if it’s not resurrected yet again by some network that inexplicably thinks people wants to see more of it), it’s hard to imagine things getting any more miserable than they already are. This was a great opportunity for Holder and Linden to severely piss each other off, with Linden making the unwise choice to yell at Caroline for not aggressively helping them enough, even though she didn’t stop to ask her for help in the first place and instead just started laying into her. Carl telling Linden that Holder blabbed at an NA meeting only worsened matters, and Holder rubbing it in her face that she forgot to take her son to the airport just fueled the fire even more. Margaret was being awfully forthcoming with information in this hour, both to the police and to surprised (if unconvinced viewers). Showing up at the police station to readily admit to having an affair with Lincoln’s father was gutsy, but also seemed to be far too overconfident. It seems that Margaret isn’t nearly as innocent as she had purported, since she and Lincoln were somehow involved in the murders, not happy that Kyle is starting to remembering what happened. I’m not sure I’m on board with that particular development, but I’m fairly certain that, no matter how things turn out with both the Skinner situation and everything involving Kyle and his conspiratorial colleagues, the season/series finale won’t be terribly pleasant or satisfying.
