Looking forward to this. Seems like things are coming to a head.

Incidentally, I saw Safe House yesterday, and was surprised to see Holder show up in a small but fun part.

My prediction is we get the killer's identity tonight and next week will be how they catch the killer.

I agree it's as good as gone, but as much as it's been criticized, mostly deserving criticisms, I will miss both Linden and Holder.

I enjoyed tonight's episode.

Nope, he's not the killer.

It's just a twist guys. Linden is the killer.

Stan: "The boys could each get their own room."

Isn't Rosie's room available for one of them to move into?

I will be disappointed if we do get election results next episode (if the series ends there).

I'd move in with the Aunt. She's pretty decent looking.

Can someone post the summary? I was a regular until a couple episodes into this season when I called it quits. Still though, I'd like to know who ended up as the killer.

How nice of the maybe big bad to stare menacingly into the damning security camera for a good long while.

The short version is
Spoiler:
Jamie was identified as the probable killer. He was on the casino security footage going up to the secret meeting on the 10th floor.

The very fact that all signs pointed to Jamie at the end of this episode clears him as the killer.

Jamie's Dad must be the killer - is this the first time we saw him? That would be a fitting end to this horseshit plot.

Just like the show with the Linden asking for the street camera video around the building that was burned with the servers (at the beginning of the show to set up the cliffhanger for that show), once they starting asking for the missing camera video early on, was there a doubt in anyone's mind that the footage would be the weekly cliffhanger?

It also seemed clear when they started pointing more fingers at "Marie" early on that "Donnie" would be the cliffhanger suspect o' the week.

Could this show be any more formulaic?

Got to think there will be 2 more twists next show. My money's on the Aunt or Linden or Stan or.... maybe the dog?

Anyone think they're gonna pull the same thing they did with the Season 1 finale?

I stopped watching about 5 episodes ago and I'm just here to find out the killer, but I would stand up and applaud if they did that.

If they just pulled a "Welp, you win some, you lose some!" move and the series ended like that, well that would just be epic and I couldn't even hate that.

So Donnie chased Rosie down, freaked out, and called Marie who eventually disposed of her live body in her campaign car?

Why did it take 25 days to blow apart everyone's alibi?

I thought all the characters riding up the elevator, one at a time, was hilarious. They still haven't finished watching the tape. Maybe next week they can get 5-6 more suspects up to the tenth floor, each glowering at the camera in an even more menacing manner than the last!

I stopped watching earlier this season, but decided to watch the finale. The last two episodes.

Yeah, I think I've never hated a lead so much. No, I've never hated a lead, period. I hate everything about her.

I also remembered why I stopped watching, I was complaining about every scene, that's extreme masochism, but it seems some of you enjoy it.
