As Linden told Mayor Adams at the top of Sunday’s episode, “Donnie or Marie,” “We’re running out of time here.”
I couldn’t help but think of how relieved I am that this marathon is almost over. Like every great long distance race the end can be the most exciting, and that much is true as we wind down "The Killing's" second season.

If you believe Holder’s theory in Sunday's episode, “72 Hours,” then you believe Rosie Larsen's murder goes straight to City Hall.
If not, we’ve got a lot of twists and turns to get through before the season closes out, so let's begin with Linden, who woke up in a psych acute ward. Our favorite case-obsessed detective had earned another trip to the cuckoo’s nest, and was placed under 72-hour suicide watch.
Holder put up a fight in the lobby, and Lt. Carlson told him Chief Jackson said she was suicidal when they found her snooping in the hotel.

We’re 22 days into the investigation of Rosie Larsen’s murder with just four episodes left in the season, which means it’s time for the writers to start doing some explaining.
Sunday’s episode waited until pretty much the very end to serve its purpose in the overall story, and I’d say it more or less delivered with information we’ve been speculating about all season.
Looking like me after a game in my weekly soccer league, Holder limps his way through the station and into Linden’s office, where everything has been removed.

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. So on Sunday's episode, Linden attempted to put a search party together for Holder, but of course was told she couldn't authorize that and had to go through someone higher up.

With last week’s underwhelming episode, it seemed as though AMC and I both took the week off. Thankfully, the “Killing” team turned up the action this week.
Between the possible death of arguably the show’s best character and the realization that Kalimish Chief and Wapi Casino manager, Nicole Jackson, might be our true villain (and overall badass), there’s much to discuss and debate.
Over at Holder’s casa, Linden was still freaking out over the drawing that was left on the refrigerator of her last place.

Sunday’s “The Killing” was definitely a game-changer. Aside from the huge Stan Larsen reveal, we also found out the possible sex of our killer and realized what we knew all along: Aunt Terry is in some way connected to Rosie’s murder.
Linden and Holder thought they had all the pieces needed to potentially implicate Alexi as Rosie’s murderer, calling it “poetic justice." They visited Monica Krol, Alexi’s mother, to find out his location, and Monica told them Alexi had no part in Rosie’s death. But like the understanding mother she seems to be only when her kid isn’t around, Linden convinced Monica to give Alexi up.
In the interrogation room, Holder - or as Alexi lovingly called him, “Slim Shady” – played bad cop. Even though Holder’s tactics failed, his “no soda,” “make-the-suspect-stand” routine was hilarious. Leave it to Lt. Carlson to come in and ruin the fun by telling Linden they could only hold Alexi for eight hours instead of 24. Why does he love putting road blocks up for our detectives? Sooner or later we’ll know.
