The Killing season 2 finally revealed who the Rosie Larsen’s killer was and it was her aunt, Terry Marek. She held the family together after the murder and even consoled Rosie’s father, Stan Larsen, after Rosie’s mother ran off to deal with the death on her own way.
There are some viewers who were not satisfied with the conclusion especially after the fake out during the end of the first season where the mayoral candidate Darren Richmond was perceived to be the killer.
There are fans who were disappointed to find out that Richmond was not the killer. AMC promised that the real killer would be revealed at the end of the second season. And now that the real killer was exposed, there were still some who disliked the identity of the killer.
During the season 2 finale of The Killing, viewers were led to believe that it was Jamie Wright, Richmond’s aide, who killed Rosie after she discovered a conspiracy that involved casino boss Nicole Jackson and crooked real estate developer Michael Ames. They planned to sabotage the mayor’s waterfront development project.
Jamie found Rosie after the meeting and he beat her up, stalked her through the woods, and then dumped her in the trunk of the car. He called Ames and asked for help and Ames agreed to meet him beside a secluded lake. But Ames didn’t go alone. He was with his girlfriend Terry. Ames refused to help but Terry overheard it all and drove the car into the lake. It was only later that she found out that it was Rosie who was in the trunk of the car.
The audience cared about the characters and the outcome of the investigation, which is why they continued watching the show. Now that the mystery was unveiled, people are wondering where The Killing will go from there.
