Spoilers: 'The Killing' Season 3 standout episode 'Six Minutes'

The clock ran out for death row inmate Ray Seward on tonight's standout episode of AMC's "The Killing," and the devastating storyline provided memorable showcases for Peter Sarsgaard and Mireille Enos. More than that, "Six Minutes," was a solid example of the once much-maligned show's season-long transformation into a tighter, sturdier and more effective crime and character drama. While AMC has yet to announce a formal decision about whether or not "The Killing" will return for Season 4, the series' creative upswing is quietly making its case for renewal.We don't yet know if Seward was guilty of murdering his wife -- the crime he was executed for -- but logic and narrative momentum suggest he wasn't. And yet there's no question he was a criminal capable of severe brutality and terrible acts. No attempt was made to soft-pedal these aspects of his character and the overall arc was all the stronger for it.Even in his... //

"It's Chris' story, with huge influences from actual events that happened in the media and in Britain," Jodie Whittaker, who plays grieving mom Beth Latimer, said Thursday (July 25) at the TCA press tour. (Chibnall wasn't able to attend.) "The Danish version was also influential."But I just think... //

Hugh Dillon jumps from 'Flashpoint' pan into 'The Killing' fire

I had that with Enrico Colantoni on 'Flashpoint,' and that makes it exciting to continue to go to work. It's funny working in that one location (the prison set), but it comes back down to the written word."And Dillon, a frequently intense performer and a fan of "The Killing"... //
