Review - The Killing Season 1 Episode 10 I'll Let You Know When I Get There

While the progression of The Killing has been far from optimal, "I'll Let You Know When I Get There" seems to steer the show in the right direction. With Bennet beaten and Stan turning himself in, Linden and Holder finally departed from their inquiry of Bennet and the mosque, which spanned a majority of the season and garnered zero leads. It's a shame the show had to go down this path, stringing the viewers along for a journey with no reward, but on the bright side, now we're close to the end of the season. Yeah, maybe this is the optimistic way at looking at the show. The show get only get better from this point on, right?

"I'll Let You Know When I Get There" again revisits the tried and true format, introducing Belko as the potential killer before moving on. What makes this better than the Bennet stuff is that there is actually a great interrogation scene and Belko is determined not to be the killer before the end of the episode.

Best of all, the episode has some momentum. It isn't much but it's suitable. There is a photo of Richmond with Rosie, and Gwen is troubled, though this may be another mislead. Terry is certainly another person who should be looked at closer. And there is a new lead in the investigation, Rosie going to an Indian casino. We'll learn the truth soon enough, so we'll just have to stick around just a bit longer.

Score: 8.6/10
