I truly believe ‘The Killing’ is one of the greatest shows ever its intense, dark yet it makes sense. A red hair detective who is obsessed with her job and works like any a super cop, except she is all human, has a boy she is not able to give time to, has personal demons she fights and some highly funny but normal-people like sweaters. A macho looking tall detective partner whose irony is his struggle with dope and his belief that he can be a good man too. Together they solve cases, fight bad guys to find justice for grieving families while feeling the same level of pain personally and professionally, as they smoke cigarettes one thing that bonds them apart from their job.
SPOILER ALERT – i am going to tell you what makes The Killing so awesome and what i think about the finale.
You know after watching shows like Dexter, HIMYM, Lost and Prison Break i felt so cheated and heartbroken because the finales were disappointing to the core. I mean, Lost and Dexter broke my heart and HIYM felt like waste of time. My purpose of talking about these shows is that after watching the finales of such big and grand shows i gave up on finales, i was sure all my favourite shows were going to end up with a senseless finale and I’m pretty sure it would happen with others too but The Killing isn’t one of them.
It’s a dark show, many of my friends have given up on it and some won’t even start with it because, yes, it’s dark. But if you watch it, you would see how much sense it makes every in damn season, every damn case and the finale. And it’s like Veena Sud knew what the show needed – a happy closure. After 4 seasons of darkness, Linden and Holder found the peace, the happiness and moment of truth – they belong together.
I know, it’s just a show but for me it was like i was part of the journey Sarah Linden went through. Each case whether it was Rosie Larsen, Bullet and Callie or Kyle Stansbury, i felt like i was a part of it. Maybe that’s why i solved them all before the finale.
When Rosie Larsen died, it broke my heart, when Bullet died i cried for real but my favourite moment was the last scene when she came back. When Sarah drove back to Holder. When a show so dark, painful and twisted got a happy ending. I think i took a sigh of relief because they didn’t kill Sarah or Holder i mean they could have, it was the show where people died but they didn’t.
Every single episode was gripping and every single case was close to my heart because of the stories, the emotions, the pain and the hope that Linden and Holder would find out who did it.
Finale was just fantastic because of the ending. Just fantastic. Thankyou Veena Sud.
