The Killing “Numb”

9 Apr

Numb, Richmond is Numb, Terry and Holder want to be Numb and I bet Sarah wishes she was.

As the episode opens we catch up with Mitch on her road trip, she is smoking listening to bad rock and passing up a hitchhiker who looks a little like Rosie.  The same girls pops up later at the hotel where Mitch is staying and banging random sales guys she picks up in the hotel bar.

Holder continues his downward spiral after finding out he was a patsy for the high ups and used to further their agenda. I must say when he hits bottom he really knows how to hit bottom. He lies to his nephew, beats up a former dealer and his mother, has skanky sex with a fellow junkie in his car and ends up playing in traffic.

Stan Larsen takes matter into his own hands, he uses his polish mafia buddies to track down the Beau Solei (escort service) computers. When his buddies get the computers they tell him Rosie wasn’t on them, but we see them being erased at the end, so either she was and they are covering it up or they are erasing them to cover up the crime and resell the computers for profit. If memory serves, Terry worked for the service, I wonder when that will come up again.

Richmond, thinks he is getting feeling back in his legs and insists on starting rehab immediately. By episode end he must face facts, and his future as Professor Xavier.  I am interested to see where we are going with this character, will he continue his run for mayor, will he ever find out why he was set up. Will we?

Sarah spends the entire episode in a bulky sweater, that looks hot and uncomfortable, I couldn’t work like that. I do have to give the show credit, they aren’t trying to sex her up with a lot of cleavage.  She works on tracking down Rosie’s backpack, when she gets it and realizes what Holder did she calls him to make nice.  She is also working on getting the warrants for the escort service computers, before she can the place is torched.  She uses surveillance camera footage to track down the guys who did it, they are driving Larsen’s van and the driver has the Anime tattoo.  In the scenes for next week we see them track the tattoo guy down, but who knows if it is the same guy.

In the end Linden and Holder reunite and get back to the business of solving the case.  Alot happens but a lot doesn’t happen, but again this is the killing.
