The Killing Postmortem: Showrunner Veena Sud on the Finale's Big Twists and Season 2

The Killing

[WARNING: The following story contains major spoilers from the season finale of The Killing. Read at your own risk.]

If you were expecting to find out who killed Rosie Larsen in Sunday's season-ending hour of The Killing, you might be feeling a little frustrated. For nearly an hour, viewers calculated gas mileage, retraced Rosie's final steps, saw Darren's lies unravel, watched the Larsen family implode... all before finding out that the murder would not be solved before the credits rolled.

AMC renews The Killing for Season 2

TVGuide.com watched the finale in advance and on Thursday spoke to executive producer Veena Sud, formerly in charge of CBS crime procedural Cold Case and now responsible for adapting The Killing's original Danish counterpart Forbrydelsen for AMC, about why she's keeping viewers in the dark, if we'll ever know more about Rosie, and what we can expect in Season 2... read more

Joel Kinnaman

Over the last 11 weeks, viewers of AMC's The Killing have been endlessly theorizing about the identity of Rosie Larsen's murderer.

TV Guide Magazine spoke to Kinnaman about the success of the first season, working in all that rain and what he hopes to explore in Season 2.

12. Tell It Like It Is Award:
Ice-T and his voluptuous wife Coco compare their Twitter follower counts on Ice Loves Coco. It's no contest — she's more than 100,000 followers ahead, which she attributes to her upbeat tone. "My conversations are always positive and happy," she says. "You're a little more hardcore. I think that has something to do with it." Ice's understated reply tells the real story: "You have 270,000 people looking at your pictures because you look good in pictures."

Kyle Chandler and Michael B. Jordan

Friday Night Lights (Friday, 9/8c, NBC)
[Reprinted from last Friday, when this episode was pre-empted by the hockey finals; sorry for the confusion] Someone needs an attitude adjustment — and that someone is star player Vince (Michael B. Jordan), caught in a tug of war over his future between his arrogant ex-con dad and well-meaning Coach Taylor, who threatens to bench Vince if he can't be more of a team player. Meanwhile, coach's wife Tami has her hands full with problem student Epyck and their daughter Julie runs off to Chicago for a rendezvous with one of coach's most beloved former protégés.

Inception (Saturday, 8/7c, HBO)

Executive producer Gary Glasberg gives us a hint. "It will be someone that we recognize," he says, adding we'll get that answer in the season premiere. We'll also get some serious intel on that microchip that E.J. found in her co-worker's arm. New theory: These mysteries are totally connected, right?

Critic's Notebook: Tonys and Tragedy on Sunday Night

Neil Patrick Harris

And by tragedy, we're not taking sides (or expressing too much schadenfreude) over Miami's climactic loss to Dallas in the NBA finals — although I'm sure ABC is weeping over being denied a seventh game to milk some more ratings juice out of this match-up. Before we discuss what went down on Game of Thrones, a few thoughts on a sparkling night of Broadway entertainment courtesy of the Tony Awards.

Once again, host extraordinaire Neil Patrick Harris brought the house down — albeit the uptown Beacon, since the mammoth Radio City was otherwise engaged — taking as his inspiration this year's much honored musical ...

Laurence Fishburne

Send questions to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: I am thrilled! Laurence Fishburne is leaving CSI. I thought that the mothership of this franchise lost a lot when Grissom left, but bringing in Laurence Fishburne's character was the worst possible mistake ever.

Matt's TV Week in Review

Mary Murphy, Nigel Lythgoe, Cat Deeley

A few quick thoughts on a week when, in my neck of the woods, it was too hot to do much of anything but stay in and watch TV. Under normal circumstances, a dip in a pool would be just the thing, but leave it to America's Got Sideshow Talent to ruin even that image. Metaphor of the week: a 50-year-old daredevil taking a high dive into a shallow kids' pool. That's Talent in a nutshell: Shallow and all wet. And yet popular, in the greasy junky way of the onion blossom booth at the county fair...

Our top moments of the week:

11. Worst Case of Denial:
Country sweethearts Taylor Swift and Shania Twain show "there's a time to sing and a time to kick ass" when they parody Thelma & Louise at the CMT Music Awards. The clip shows the two on the road, playing with guns, driving off cliffs and bumping into the likes of Glee's Chord Overstreet ("Who do you think you are, Brad Pitt?" Shania asks dryly) and Kid Rock. The most bizarre cameo is by... read more
