I finished season two today. WOW... was that dark, especially that twist at the end. I cried when the family watched Rosie's movie. Such a sad ending! But then, the murder of a seventeen-year-old girl is always going to be a sad thing--sometimes procedural shows gloss over that sadness, in part because they only really have 43 minutes to solve the case. I feel like this show really did the sadness of it justice.
And the councilman was relevant, I suppose! I kind of wish we'd seen a little less of the campaign, but eh, it's a minor quibble. I get it now.
I do wonder if they knew from the outset who the killer was. I'd think they would have had to, but I'd be curious to know if that was indeed the case, or if they switched gears at any point.
I'm excited to start season three and catch up! I've got all six episodes on my DVR, so I'll probably start later this week/this coming weekend.
