As Linden & Holder are at Joe Mills storage locker after a showdown with Joe. Linden looks thru all the missing rings of the girls that Reddick "found" (I say it in parentheses because it screams set up to me) and inside there, she finds the chain Bullet wore with her signature bullet on it. Linden hastily tries to get Holder's attention, she tries to prevent him from looking inside Joe's cab where he & another officer believe another body is inside the trunk. Of course, he doesn't hear her tell him not to open it over the walkie talkie & the officer pops the trunk. Linden gets there before they open it up & begs Holder not to look inside, but of course, against better judgment he does. They of course show us Bullets "faith" tattoo in plain sight, letting everyone know, it is Bullet's body in the trunk of the cab.
Much like the teeter-totter relationship Holder had with Bullet, the fans were much the same.
Many loved the wisecracking street kid who acted as a
protector of the other street kids despite being somewhat on the small side.
Some hated her because they couldn't relate to the character or didn't like her persona.
One thing was for sure though, everyone who is watching season 3 of The Killing had an opinion on Bullet.
Born Rachel Olmstead, Bullet seemingly CHOSE to become a street kid despite coming from a financially well off family. Her dad still sent her money, unlike many of the other youth who only made money by exchanging sexual favours or hustling in other ways. With only 3 episodes left, there are a lot of questions to be answered about Bullet's past, and her demise. Will we get them all? Hard to say.
- Why did she choose the streets over her family? Did she do so because of problems with her family? Or was it because Lyric, who she harboured an epic crush on, ended up there?
- Who killed her? (it really seems unlikely it was Joe)
- Did she leave any clues for Holder in all the messages she sent him who it is?
Tonight will be the 1st of the final 3 episodes ( 2 weeks - next week is a 2 episode finale). It will be the 1st episode Bullet will not be part of. But that doesn't mean she cant still be "in" the show, whether thru her voice messages to Holder, or maybe a video on her phone? I just feel her death is going to somehow have a sizable impact on finding the true killer, and not just because Holder is gonna go all Robocop (haha, see what I did there) on anyone that might get in the way of him finding out the truth, including his own partner.
I saw Bullet ( played by Bex Taylor-Klaus ) on set twice this season.
First time, I had NO CLUE she was even a cast member. She just looked like some random street kid background person to me. Ther ewas little to no info about the upcoming season out at ths time. Had I stuck it out at the set a bit longer that day I would have known they were filming the scene where Holder confronts her on the overpass & she tells him she will take him to Goldie's apartment. I got 2 photos of her on the set, but they are so small, and I wasn't focusing on her, that she's barely visible on them.
The last time, they filmed a scene 2 blocks from my house. She did a scene where she chats up a street kid "Poochie" to get some drugs (played by Bryce Hodgson from "X2") & of course learns Angie, the girl with the missing finger who saw the killer was leaving town...which of course, is the start of the end for Bullet.
I of course blogged about that last sighting http://canadagraphs.weebly.com/6/post/2013/05/photos-from-the-set-of-the-killing-filming-season-3-with-joel-kinnaman-mireille-enos.html unaware still who I was photographing, or, that it would be the last time I would see her on set.
Tonight, maybe we'll get some insight into Bullet's last day. If we're really lucky, we'll get some insight into her past too.
I sure hope, by the end of next weeks 2 hour season finale, we will know the answers to what happened to her & of course, who is the street kid killer.
Here are some of the pictures I got of Bex on set the two times I saw her. Some are re-posted from my earlier blog. But there is a few that I didn't post last time. Enjoy. Watch tonight & next Sunday for the finale to 1 of the best seasons of television there has been this year.
