      The latest campaign ad from the Mayor must've been one mega boner killer!

      I don't know, this is basically a series based on a single event. Something any other show could've done in one episode. It's slow pacing has its merits, if you can sit through it. The characters are somewhat likable. But I find the show to be really depressing, especially some of the intimate parts they were able to capture. Its almost as if the writers/director behind the show is trying to convey their personal experiences through the show.

      The mom is done, and after the last episode she put her man back in his old days kind of mode.

      This could be crammed into one episode and I would be questioning certain things left out. One of the reasons I'm still watching. Plus I'm a sucker for a good investigation with more going on than what was expected. After seeing the first two episodes, I expected this series to move slow.

      anyone watch the extended preview for next week (may 29)?

      i didn't think bennett amhed was the killer since it seemed too obvious too early. stan, belko, and mitch will definitely be in the **** now with stan and belko beating amhed to a pulp, though.

      i have a feeling it will come back to some mob stuff involving stan, but considering how this show can change drastically very episode, i'm still not totally sold, nor is their much to support my opinion yet.

      great show though.

      As my wife and I were watching the last episode, I said I wonder what Mitch's sister's story is... I think she has something to do with the murder... Something odd about how she had Rosie's textbooks in her car...

      I like this but it has kind of slowest down to where the last 2 or 3 episodes seem like one long one.

      I'm gonna say it's Gwen, the Counsilman's advisor and plaything. The look on her face during the final minute when she was looking at the picture of Rosie with the Counsilman was kinda creepy.

      Or Rosie's mom. I recall during an earlier episodes, the mother was questioned why she didn't call Rosie during the weekend when the parents were away. Any normal parent of a teenager would call their kid when they're away. I found that pretty shady.

      I think it is going to come out that she was meeting up with the aunt.

      agreed, there is definitely something going on with the aunt. I think that the mayor candidate (forget his name) has a skeleton that is yet to fall out of his closet as well.

      Honestly, right now I am thinking that maybe the campaign guy killed her.

      i think he's just a distraction, and has nothing to do with it.

      I don't know. They spent time making him come across as wrapped too tight guy that would do anything to get the candidate elected.

      They can just add a little more detail and BAM! you got a crazy murderer.

      i think it's still a really close toss-up between the campaign and stan/mitch (his past) somehow. tonight, thought it was slow and not much to do with the case itself, the ending really kind of had me thinking more towards stan and his past. tonight definitely did bring out some interesting facts about both detectives.

      rosie's aunt still has me wondering though, too. ah man, i even catch myself watching the rerun during the week and rethinking theories.

      only two episodes left to tie it up. any idea if the finale will be more than an hour?

      from some chatter i've seen on twitter and whatnot, people are saying it was a great episode.

      i must have missed something during the search for jack, but i might do some reading and re-watch it, to see if that's the case.

      definitely a filler episode.. barely any connection to the whole story.

      Unless they plan on expanding this past a single season, the last episode was unnecessary character development.

      Hope Sunday night is exponentially better.

      100% disagree.

      the show is about the effect the killing has on the people who's life it's touched. This episode showed that perfectly. I thought it was a great episode, and allowed the two main characters to show more of who they are.

      Because the slower it moves the more brilliant it must be, right?
