'The Killing': Linden against the world

We’re getting closer. Five episodes from now we should know who killed Rosie Larsen, but until then, we have a mess of conspiracy theories, red herrings and Pez dispensers to go through before we get there.

Last night’s “Off the Reservation” did what a typical “Killing” episode seems to do, which is reveal new info while raising even more questions.

After Holder's beating last week, we learned that Nicole Jackson, like Wu-Tang, ain’t nothing to ... OK, you get where I’m going with that.

This week's episode kicked off the 1966 holiday season and served as a reminder that families – whether nuclear or professional – are almost always rife with drama.

We opened with Don putting together a portfolio of work to submit for a New York Times profile on "hip" ad agencies. In doing so, he realized how much of an impact Ginsburg's had on the firm's recent business.

He was also impressed with Michael's pitch for a Pepsi product called “Sno Ball,” but appeared just the slightest bit put out when the guys – Pete and Cosgrove – declared Michael's pitch funnier than his own, a play on the expression “a snowball's chance in hell.”
