AMC’s “The Killing” continues to haunt us on Sunday nights. Over the course of the twelve weeks of the show the question that will be on everybody’s mind is of course “who killed Rosie Larsen?” Which means it’s time for Television Oddsmakers, your guide to the ever changing odds on who we think is responsible for the death of Rosie Larsen.
Darren Richmond – 65:1 – I’ve played a couple of games of HORSE in my life for a handful of buck. Darren however ups the game this week in his moment of despair to play for $5 million…and a basketball. Of course Darren’s a hell of a shot, so apparently our favorite Mark Cuban stand-in decides to pony up the cash to help get Darren back in the ballgame. Is it just me or is “The Killing” really about the sadness that overcomes Seattle after losing the SuperSonics?
Stephen Holder – 30:1 – At this point Holder is just a giant punching bag right? His buddy judge apparently wasn’t that great a friend and denied his illegal wiretap request driving Lt. Oakes ballistic. Never fear though as Amber Ahmed comes to the rescue to lead Holder and Linden straight to the girl…the wrong girl of course…but at least it’s a girl. Hey at least he solved one case.
Bennet Ahmed – 25:1 – Bennet strangely decides to return to school this week just have to his entire classroom walk out on him, taunting him by writing “Killer” on the white board. Of course Bennet finds plenty of time to talk to Muhammed on the phone, enough to make his wife suspicious and turn over Muhammed’s number to the cops. Of course it’s all a misunderstanding…seems that our two upstanding citizens were just trying to save another girl from an arranged marriage and the other side effects related to it. Unfortunately for Bennet, Stan doesn’t get the facts straight either…
Gwen Eaton and Jamie Wright – 13:1 – If the name weren’t already taken by Holder and Linden, the Keystone Kops would work perfectly for these two. So they finally convinced Darren o go for the jugular by digging up the dirt on Mayor Adams just to see it backfire on them. Pretty crappy job though as political operatives though to not see the fact that the Mayor would easily turn it right back on Darren. If I didn’t know any better you would think they were trying to make Darren lose. How else to do that? Oh that’s right…maybe kill a girl and throw her body into a campaign car?
Belko Royce – 5:1 – Welcome back to the ballgame Belko! After a week off, Belko finally decides to earn a paycheck and help Stan actually do some moving. Oh and more importantly he also decides to show off his insane bloodlust as well with what I believe was punching a rock while Stan was beating the living hell out of Bennet. Of course though, it was just a misunderstanding (Stan’s bad) because Mitch sucks at doing laundry. If she had bothered to fire up the washer and dryer just a bit sooner she would have realized that the Grand Canyon t-shirt found at the butcher’s wasn’t Rosie’s. Oops!
