What I Know
Now we know. We finally got the answer to “Who killed Rosie Larsen?” and it was as sad, horrifying, and surprising as you’d expect. I genuinely never entertained the idea that it was someone in the family. After being so irked last year that we didn’t get an answer at the end of the first season, I was happy that before this season even started, TPTB told us we’d have to wait until the end of it for that. That was a tremendously freeing choice.
Previously on The Killing: Linden finds the city hall key card in the tenth floor casino construction site, Holder and Linden walk into the Richmond campaign room, Mitch finds out about the house Stan was planning on buying, Roberta gives Holder and Linden the footage from the broken camera that shows Jamie getting into the elevator, Jamie shows up at the fisherman’s cabin where Richmond waits for him, he wants to know why Jamie lied to him.
So Rosie Larsen died not only because she overheard Jamie’s Indian casino conspiracy talk, but because Aunt Terry was in the car and would rather let what she thought was some random girl drown in a lake than lose out on the chance that Mr. Ames would leave his wife. And before that, Darren Richmond got paralyzed because he had the horrible timing to have been attempting suicide at the exact moment Rosie was killed, making it difficult for a man in his position to offer the cops a convincing alibi. And before that, Bennet Ahmed got beaten half to death(*) because he also couldn’t tell the cops the truth because he was busy trying to save some other, unrelated girl from being ritually circumcised the night that Rosie died.
They waste no time filling us in on what happened to Rosie that night — Jamie admits to Darren that he was meeting with Chief Jackson and Ames that night because they were planting Indian bones on the waterfront so Mayor Adams couldn’t develop there. One of their guys was busted — that’d be Janek’s guy from a few episodes back — resulting in the late night meeting on the casino’s 10th floor. If Adams couldn’t develop the waterfront, then Richmond could take control and allow Chief Jackson to build a new casino there; in turn, the project would give Richmond enough money for future elections. Jamie caught Rosie on the 10th floor, she freaked out and he knocked her unconscious. Fearing she was dead, he took her out to bury her, but she woke up and he had to finish the deed.
