If only chunky knit sweaters offered some sort of protective power.

Using her detective skills, a clearly terrified Linden begins to empathize with Mike, who temporarily drops the knife from her throat. He, however, is much too clever for such mind games and immediately makes it known that Holder’s better half isn’t getting out of this situation… alive.

    • I agree. It has it’s flaws like any cop drama, but it’s tone is dark and the actors are wonderful

  • Love this series. The actors are AMAZING. And this kid who plays Bullet, definitely deserves an award nod.

  • Linden will definitely outsmart Pastor Mike. I figured the story would lead us to the Pastor as the possible killer. From what I’ve seen, he fits the crimes but is it what I’m suppose to assume? I hope he isn’t another red herring, the show loves them. If it is, it will be disappointing. Then again, I’m starting to think the killer is a cop.

  • Elias koteas is given third billing in the credits but I don’t recognize him. (According to IMDb, he’s only in about half the episodes.) Who is this “James Skinner” he’s playing?

  • It seems a little early to be revealing the killer. I’m wondering if he’s not the actual killer but involved in the murders somehow, some kind of accomplice.
