The Killing: Season Finale

SPOILER WARNING AND REQUEST: Spoilers for Season One of the The Killing reside herein, so, if you don't want to know, move along. If you've watched the original Danish series on which it's based, Forbrydelsen, please make sure to clearly label spoilers that watchers of the US series may not want to know.

So, I started out liking, with some reservations, AMC's The Killing, and then I kept liking it, even though there were some silly bits and too many reversals and too much rain, and then came the finale of the first season, which apparently everyone else in the world hated—except for the New York Times critic who evidently didn't watch it.

I kind of liked the series finale, and, because I'm an asshole like that, I'm kind of amused at how much so many people hated it, even though I totally understand exactly why they hated it and think they kind of have a point.

Especially about Holder, because just no.

Anyway, did you watch it? What did you think?
