On August 4th, the 3rd season of the hit crime drama "The Killing" will wrap up with a 2 hour season finale & we will find out who the street kid serial killer is.
Of course, till then, lots of speculation on who is, or isnt the killer. Everyone (myself included) has theories on who it is, and why this person or that person cant be the killer.
On the 2nd to last day of filming for the season I caught up to them filming on a quiet street in the Queens Park area of New Westminster for scenes at the Skinner family house.
On this particular day there was 2 cast members on set. Elias Koteas ( James Skinner) & Mireille Enos (Sarah Linden). I chatted with a few people that day, including the people who owned the house they were filming in & a couple fans who had been there earlier & on the prior filming day before the weekend.
I was told 2 things about the set that I didnt get to see myself.
1- A scene earlier that day was done where Linden was sitting in her car with her gun drawn (never quite got the details if someone was in the car with her, or if she was pointing it at someone outside.)
2- The previous filming day, Joel Kinnaman (Stephen Holder) was on set, and had a scene with Linden where they are knocking on Skinners door.
Notably absent from the set, were Skinners wife & daughter... which I thought was odd since it was their house.
What does all this mean for the finale? Who knows. This could possibly be an innocuous moment between Linden & Skinner after the case was wrapped. It could be a monumental moment that is vital to telling us who the killer is. Really, it could be anything else in between. We will just have to wait to see.
On the set the day I was there, both Elias & Mireille stopped to sign autographs for those who asked while they were there.
The Killing cast & crew have always been great with fans & regulars. Really hoping this was not my last encounter with them.
Below are the pics from that day. My buddy joked with me, after not having seen Mireille in a few hours of being there he was really only waiting around to see what colour sweater he had this time.. Must say, if The Killing ever has a wardrobe sale here, there will be a sizable section devoted to hoodies & sweaters.
The Killing can be seen on Sunday night, on AMC. Season finale is August 4th.
