Linden was once Seward's judge, but now she's his savior. And although she won't take any disrespect from him (she's not afraid to hang up the phone on him), she stays with him as much as possible. But of course, there's always a twist.
One of the reasons "The Killing" is so enthralling is that the writers have created these really damaged detectives. And as they investigate murders and come in contact with those searching for answers, the underlying theme might as well be, "This could be me."
Mireille Enos' portrayal of Linden as a seemingly emotionless woman who's one step away from having a total breakdown has always worked for me, and she really nailed last night's episode of "The Killing."
This week's episode of "The Killing" brought more rain, a frantic search for a seriously wounded girl we all hoped would be Kallie, some major displays of bad parenting and the return of an old friend: Holder's hoodie.
Linden finds a secret panel and lo and behold, she uncovers the "set" for the porn films -- and most disturbingly -- a blue teddy bear handcuffed in a submissive pose. (Have I mentioned how disturbing I find all of this?)
This week's picked up where last week left off, with Linden waiting at the crime scene for the cops to arrive. Although Holder accuses her of trying to steal his case, it's obvious he always intended to lure Linden back to detective work.
For all the carping, if you spend a little bit of time on The Killing comment boards as I did over the past few days, the vast majority of negative commenters (in turn the vast majority of commenters overall) say they are planning to tune in to season three.
