The Killing Recap: Go in There and Ask Him

The Killing’s strength has always been its characters. It’s when it comes to plot that it tends to get tangled up. Its loose ends wrap around the characters' ankles and pull them down. That speech that Holder gave Linden outside the prison nailed the biggest problem I’ve been having this season. Adrian tells her that he saw his dad the night of his mother’s death and Linden immediately storms out to her car, even though she knows that once she leaves the prison she won’t be able to come back.
