[The following post contains spoilers from the April 22 episode of AMC’s “The Killing.”]
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.

Before sitting down with us for an interview, Australia-born rapper Iggy Azalea had a few concerns.
“As long as it’s not about fighting, who I am having sex with or if I’m racist,” Azalea, who recently inked a deal with Interscope and is also signed with T.I.’s Grand Hustle label, told us before the first question was raised.
Listen to Iggy Azalea's interview:
Iggy did eventually open up about everything except the fighting, despite her early apprehensions, but such cautions are commonplace for the 21-year-old.

The beginning of the end started in Arlington, Texas, with a cameo from Seth Rogen.
Having Rogen as the closer telling women, “What you know about money girl,” and subsequently being hit by a truck was brilliant. It looked like Kenny Powers was going to get the call we’ve been waiting three seasons for him to get.
Meanwhile, KP was sitting at home in Toby’s room, reminiscing. He told the gang that he was ready to move on from the Toby life, saying, “Thank you Christ for allowing all this awesome stuff to happen.” I wake up every morning and start with that prayer.

With everything that’s happened in the lives of our characters, it’s hard to believe the Rosie Larsen case is only at day 17.
But if Sunday’s episode was any indication, things are about to pick up: We finally have our first major suspect (or just another red herring) of season 2.
Linden and Holder are back to talking over cases in the car again, and while they went over the contents of Rosie’s bag, Holder mentions he knows a guy who can give it a real examination.

In arguably one of the greatest “Eastbound & Down" episodes ever, Kenny Powers got his mojo back, Ashley Schaeffer met his demise and we said goodbye to baby Toby, for now.
Sunday's episode saw Black Biker Week arrive at Myrtle Beach, and yes, that was 2 Chainz playing in the intro. Rap music and KP don’t mix unless there's about to be some hilarious racial tension.
Of course, all the folks in the beach town were scared. And who was the guy in the Skeletor mask? That would be KP’s nemesis, Reg Mackworthy (Craig Robinson). Great opening sequence.

I’m hooked on “The Killing” once again. Sunday brought the return of Mitch and the fall of Holder, but let’s start with Mitch. The Larsen matriarch was cruising down a highway when she saw a brunette girl on the side of the road trying to hitch a ride.
Was it Rosie? Mitch couldn’t tell, which let us know that she’s still working through the whole sanity thing while coping with Rosie’s death. With a decorated shoebox in hand (any guesses what it holds?), Mitch checked into a motel.
Over at the station, Linden was trying to nab a search warrant for the Wapi Eagle Casino, the last place we saw Rosie alive. She also ran into the tech, who told her the tattoo from the super 8 footage is from a Japanese comic book character, Ogi Jun.
