I'm still enjoying the show. It doesn't quite have the intensity of S1 but it is still great. It will be interesting to see what it is that Hayes did that got him kicked out of MCU, etc. There are some interesting theories floating about. Halfway through at this point and I can't say I have a clear sense of who did what and why.

I really have no idea who the killer is or where this is headed but I'm loving the story so far.

Same here. It's the only show I'm watching, so I'm thinking about it a bit and I just don't see who it is. Maybe we haven't seen the kikker yet. My guess is that the detective will figure it all out once he's in a home and no one will believe a thing he says

I hope they don't treat this like the typical whodunnit, where one of the characters we've already seen is the culprit.
I'd rather just have it be someone we never knew about until the last or second-last episode.

Nothing was worse than the first 2 seasons of the American version of The Killing.
Almost every episode we see someone who looks extremely guilty and then find out the next episode why it wasn't him/her. Makes it painfully obvious when we're not going to find out who the killer was until the end of the season anyway.

I think I might like this season better than Season 1. Im enjoying the three timeline approach. Season 1 just had so much acting firepower that we overlooked everything else except for the "boobs"

Once again I'll post The Ringer's After-show. I especially liked the Conspiracy Corner segment at the end.

This season really is a return to form. I'm liking everything about it so far.

I also hope this isn't the direction they are going in as well, especially considering the timeline (and the reoccurring characters within it).

Is Stephen Dorff good in this?

it is probably his best role in a decade since he mostly does made for dvd movies.

He's excellent in this. All four of the "above the line" actors are.
