    Deleted scene from Episode 2.2 ("Numb"):
    Linden arrives on scene, neck not cold. Warm, in fact. Holder in the middle of the street, eyes darting, frantically pacing. Eyes farting. He's in bad shape, obviously. Pacing in the wet Seattle traffic.
    Linden: (Shrugs, raises her voice to just above a whisper. Like imagine stabbing a marshmallow with a toothpick. That level of audibility.) "Holder, get out of street." (Rolls eyes. Sighs. Rolls sighs.)
    Holder: "I'm from the streets, yo. I tolds you, Lindo! I returned to wheres I was borns. This is god's concrete, Lindo. He masoned this shit."
    Linden: (Makes half-hearted attempt to point a finger towards oncoming traffic) "Car coming. Headlights." (*phone rings*) Shows index finger to Holder to indicate "one minute."
    Linden (cont.): "Jack. No I forgot to buy bread. Well, you'll just have to eat the jelly with your hands. I know it's warm, Jack! Our hotel room doesn't have a fridge!" (Gets teary-eyed.) *Call waiting* "Jack, I gotta go. Jack, I know it's annoying that I keep inserting your name into sentences. Jack, I gotta go. Jack, I gotta. Jack, I. Jac. J."
    Linden: "Hello. Holder?"
    Holder: "Lindo! Why yoos on the phones? I'm yelps for helps, yo! Whatta gotta do?"
    Linden: "I'm hanging up." (Shouts to Holder) "I'M HANGING UP!"

    Kinnaman always keeps me coming back for more. :D
    A tiny, tiny part of me is still hoping that he plays pre-suit Alex Murphy exactly like Holder. (Just substitute "Lewis" for "Lindo" above, there.)

    Linden: "Yes. That's what the newly-exonerated suspect just told me." (Phone beeps) "I gotta take this, Holder. Hello? Hello? Hello?"
    Holder: "Lindo, I think yous gots a techs message, yo. Haha, Lindo. Your phone skills are old school, yo. Like cavesmans, hear?"
    Linden: (Confused, hands phone to Holder.)

    This stuff is rivaling Hanson's American Idol stuff. Awesome.

    Thanks, Josh -- considering how much I love Hanson's Idol-stuff myself, that's a helluva compliment. :D

    I thought last week's scene of Richmond stabbing his leg with the pin was sad and grim but they one upped it with Mitch 'replacing' her daughter with the runaway girl.

    Was glad to see they're finally moving Richmond out of this vast depression with a new conviction to run and win. I mean, his depression was utterly understandable, but it doesn't make for riveting TV.

    I'm still not sure what that was all about. With her getting into the black town car it made it seem like Mitch knows a lot more about her daughter's murder than she's been leading on.

    SCENE: Dreary Seattle.
    CUT TO: Dreary police station.
    CUT TO: The dreaded "box." A place where criminals are taken and submitted to merciless interrogation methods. (See: Belko. See: Ahmed, Bennet. See: nosebleed friend-girl.) We start in the middle of a classic interrogation tactic: "Good Cop/Cop in Thick Turtleneck."
    Holder: "Alexi, you goods? You comp'fortable? Need anything, yo? Need mes to go on an Arby's run? You hungry? I can run and comes back, no pro'lem. Seriously, yo. Whatchu' needs? Jus' names it, yo. I'm here to serves."
    Alexi: "Soda."
    Holder: "Yo! (Throws hands up in the air.) What do you think this is, huhs? Buckinghams Palace? This is the bochs, yo! You gets no sodas. No waters. No lids or straws. No refills, ha. NOTHING TO refill, yo. Why ya sittin' down, Goldsielock? YO! STANDS UP!" (Holder grabs the chair and throws it out of the room.)
    Chair: "..."
    Holder: "No chairs! Ha, unless yous Richmond! My bad on that, P.S. And NO tables, yo." (Holder shoves the table towards the door, but it doesn't fit. He turns it on its side, and gets it about halfway out by angling it a little. But it jams.)
    Holder: "Lindo! I needs a screwsdriver, yo. (Out of breath). Needs to gets these legs off. Need to un-IKEA this muth."
    Linden: (Gives Holder "the look." Actually, her "only look.")
    Holder: (Blushes. Grimaces. Hamburglars. Tries to climb over the table to leave.)
    Linden: "Alexi, I'm sorry. Come here." (Hugs Alexi like the son she's never had. Motions for the table-trapped Holder to skedaddle.)
    Holder: "Yo, Lindo! Am trying to turn the tables, yo. Haha."
    Linden: "..."
    Holder: "Yo, let's 'table' that discussion. HA!"
    Linden: "..."
    Lt. Carlson (Peeks in the room.) "They caught The Rye. Masturbating sandwich-guy? Good work, you two."

    Deleted scene from Episode 2.6 ("Openings"):
    CUT TO: Holder's apartment.
    Holder: "Yo, Lindo. You on Pinterest?"
    Linden: (Glumly chews on a bite of homemade California roll.) "What's that?"
    Holder: "Ha. Listen to Lin-DEN. 'What's that?' It's a site on the Internets, yo. The I-N-T-E-R-WEB, Lindo. Wait, maybe they don'ts have that in the eighteenths century. Haha."
    Linden: (Frowns. Well, she was already frowning, but frowns more.) "I have a computer, Holder. So did Rosie." (Pulls a heavily-stickered computer keyboard from her bag. Linden smells each key longingly. She closes her eyes and breathes deeply.)
    Holder: "Dat Rosie's?! Watchu doin' takin' her perif'rals, yo. I already thought your lip-gloss grab went toos far, but I lets it slides. Since we's partnerds. For life, yo."
    Linden: (Pulls a bottle of contact lens solution from her purse. Pops the top and sniffs. She closes her eyes. A relaxed grin etches its way across her face.)
    Holder: "Linden, you can't keep taking Rosie's stuffs, yo! What the ARF? Our jobs is already on da lines, yo!"
    Linden: "This is Belko's."
    Holder: "...Oh."
    Holder (cont.): "Let me get a hit of that shit."

    Wasn't going to watch the second season of The Killing, after what happened at the end of the first season. Then I read that the actress who plays Detective Sarah Lund in Forbrydelsen (the original The Killing), Sofie Grabol, is guest starring in the second episode as a friend of the lead female character. The season premiere was good, with an interesting ending which makes you want to see the rest of the season.

    I've found the second season hit and miss so far. I'm still interested in the case, but some of the subplots they've spun off have really left me cold.

    Extended scene from Episode 2.7 ("Keylela"):
    CUT TO: Holder's apartment. Contains more than one futon, let's be honest.
    Holder: "Yo, Jack! I'm straight dustin' you at Monops, son. I gots Ball-tick Avenues. I gots Elec-trick Avenue! I gots Water Pipe Place, yo. Haha. You know I got them railroads, son! Chew-chew, you sonuva...oh, sorry, Lindo. Plus, check out all my endz! (Holder waves the fake-colored Monopoly money under Jack's nose.)
    Jack: "Go to ho-tel, Holder."
    Holder: "Haha." (Puts Jack in a headlock.) "Lind-o, your sons gots a lips on hims, girl. YO LIN-DEN, you GOTS to play wit' us."
    Linden: (Sigh.) "OK."
    Holder: "Yo, playa! Pick a playa-piece, yo!"
    Holder: (cont.) "I'm the dawg. What else, right? Jack's the old shoe, of course. Richmon' be the wheelchairbarrow, if he weres here, yo! Haha. My bad on that, tho. R.I.P., his legs." (Holder kisses the cross he wears around his neck, eyes to heaven.)
    Linden: "I'll be the turtleneck."
    Holder: "What?"
    Linden: "The turtleneck-one."
    Holder: (Looks at remaining silver playing pieces. Confused.) "I ain't gots that one, yo."
    Linden: "Yeah, right there, Holder." (She rolls her eyes.)
    Holder: "What, the top hat?" (Hold[ers] up the piece.)
    Linden: "Yeah, the turtleneck."

    Extended scene from Episode 2.8 ("Off the Reservation"):
    CUT TO: After a fruitless search of a dump-site, Linden, working off a wordless tip from a young girl, points the search squad in the opposite direction. After some weed-trampling and a handful of dog-barks, they locate a beaten and bloodied Holder, perched underneath a tree. Like a emptied, leaking, street-smart water balloon.
    CUT TO: Linden running down a hill towards Holder, who is being looked over in a could-care-less fashion by two officers in blue.
    Linden: (Running) "MULDER!!!"
    Linden: (Running) "MULDER!!! I'm coming!"
    Linden: (Running) "Shit. HOLDER. I SAID HOLDER!!!"
    Holder: *cough* *cough* "...'zat you, Lindo? Ugh. I got pummeled, yo. Tomahawk CHOP, yo."
    Linden: (Reaches her battered partner, falls to her knees beside him.) To the two cops looking Holder over: "Call an ambulance! Get a doctor! Anything!"
    Linden (cont.): "Holder...what happened....my God. Oh my God."
    Holder: "Lindo..." *cough* "They thrashed my thorax. Them Indians, yo?" *cough* "They swarmed my shits. Now I know what WAMPUM means. Haha."
    Linden: "Holder, just try to rest. Help is on the way...."
    Holder: "Native Americans? Right. More like HATE-IVE Americans. Ha."
    Linden: "SOMEBODY! MEDIC, PLEASE!! Holder, please, just relax."
    Holder: "Futz the peace pipe, LIN-DEN. They broughts the WAR PIPE! And then beats me ugly wit it, yo!" *cough*
    Linden: "(sigh) OK."
    Holder: "Now I know what WAMPUM means."
    Linden: "You said that one already." (A female medic arrives, out of breath.)
    Medic: "Hey, let me start patching you up, detective. Hold still." (The medic applies a bandage to Holder's bleeding forehead.)
    Holder: "Now I gotta headdress, yo. Haha."
    Linden: "....."
    Holder: "Chief had BEEF, Lindo. She rawed me. Feel like potato stew up in this shit. WTF, yo??"
    Linden: "Did you find out anything about Floor 10?"
    Holder: "One took off my sneaker. Pooped in it. And put it back on my foot, Lindo."
    Linden: "...Close enough."

    I'm surprised there hasn't been a lot of discussion about what was possibly the best episode of the series this week.

    The investigation really went full circle back to the Richmond campaign. I think I'll feel cheated if it's Jamie. There have been too many indications given that he's not the killer. I guess Gwen would make more sense but I don't think it's her because in that phone call Rosie said, "HE'S here." My money is on the Mayor's aide.

    I'm glad about that because if it had been someone involved with the Indian casino or the opposing campaign, it would make alot of the investigation in the first season feel unnecessary in retrospect.
    If I was betting, I'd say it's Gwen but since there's still two more episodes, it could rapidly change into it being neither her or Jamie.
