We have a thread for this now? Last I knew it was just cori & I talking about it in the random thread.

My thought on the twist in the latest episode:

 
The teacher is a red herring, he honestly seemed devoted to his job and impressed by Rosie, plus he'd have to be super sick to go & talk to the mother like that, though obviously he'd overstepped boundaries with his relationship with the girl & not being up front about is going to cost him, but then again I'm the kind of person that wants to see the good in people, but I also think it's kind of early in the series to figure it out, kind of like all the throwaway suspects in the first 20 minutes or so of a Law & Order episode.

I have not watched the last episode.
But I do think the killer has got some screen time by now.

I don't think the last episode will be, "some escaped convict is introduced, he steels a car, sees her flagging down cars, throws her in trunk, etc."

I got my pick, I posted the actor's birth month,
so if I claim I got it right, his or her birth month will have to match.

Yeah I don't doubt we've glimpsed or met the killer, they should be in screen in the next few weeks at the latest, otherwise it's a cheesy twist like you said.

it was very subtle, when I had my a-ha moment

if it pans out, others will look back and say, yeah I didn't see it, but I can buy it.

If not, it will be one of my great 'wrong' predictions, like my early 'Lost' theories.

I agree about the red herring status of the new suspect.

 
And there's no way that the only black character in the main cast is goig to be the killer. Or even just an opportunistic perv.

Better than Twin Peaks? Nah, this is a fairly typical police procedural, it's very well-done but there's not really anything that unique about it. Hell, the plot is something you could have cobbled together from half a dozen Law & Order episodes.

Twin Peaks, on the other hand...well there's just been nothing like it on television before or since.

Yeah, there are only surface similarities: dead girl, and Washington state.

Better in terms of authenticity, but obviously Twin Peaks' creativity outstrips The Killing by far.

At least much (most?) of Twin Peaks was actually filmed in Washington.

I've spotted many outdoor downtown shots that I can identify as Seattle. And others that must be Vancouver, because they're not downtown Seattle.

At least it's close, much as I love shows like Fringe, their attempts at Massachusetts geography are just embarrassing.
