What if this "thing" on the cage is the "beast" they are talking about before, perhaps the one that disappeared so many women in Juarez... are they going there and let it be an actual beast?

Perhaps he is the real killer and the brother just took the rap?

Really liking this season so far. Don't have any issue understanding Linder or anyone else. As for the "beast" we only saw 2 fingers I believe.

For English not being my born language I understood Linder perfectly... perhaps because I live in El Paso?

Not from El Paso, but not sure why people have a hard time understanding him. Of course I listen with AVR on and quiet maybe that helps?

Also, when the brother had just died he was looking through some drawings when Sonya arrived at the infirmary and quickly put them away. When Sonya asked if the dead brother had left anything Jack downplayed it as if he had left nothing, "just some junk" I think he said. It seems pretty clear there's something in those drawings Jack wants to keep away from Sonya, and it's probably why he was even at his brother's deathbed in the first place. You do have to wonder who is really playing who in this relationship.

That is my feeling as well. Although, if he really was the one who killed her sister, he's stupid to be spending so much intimate time with her.

Damn it Chloe, we're running out of time. Use the not a computer device!

Yes, what ever is happening it certainly seems like a complicated situation.

Looked like? They clearly showed him looking at the pictures and taking one of them.

I think I may tend to agree with others regarding the brother. The picture he took may be a "trophy" of his killing as well as to hide his involvement.

I was thinking that myself. The original season 2 had two main story lines. Must be to stretch things to the archaic 13 episode model.

The Bridge is so complex, I realized about 10 minutes into this week's episode that I had missed some things along the line. I then retrieved this season's three previous episodes from my TiVo's Recently Deleted directory and rewatched them today. I'm glad I did.

Eleanor, the brilliant but psychopathic "shunned Mennonite," becomes more interesting all the time. Franka Potente is perfectly cast as Eleanor.

I agree that Jack, the brother of the guy who killed Sonya's sister, is at least dirty in some way and possibly may be the real killer of Sonya's sister. A couple of things convinced me. First, the strong foreshadowing provided by Hank when he told Jack he had to have something wrong with him because he was raised in the same environment as his killer brother. The capper to me, though, came when Jack stole one of his brother's drawings that were in Sonya's apartment while Sonya was asleep.

I think the Mexican who killed the tranny who was stabbed to death was a cutout. The American who the actual killer had contracted with was probably the cartel's middleman.

Linder and the preacher man who is sheltering Eva aren't gifted torturers, to say the least, as their captured Mexican cop called to their attention. They have been so ineffective at extracting useful information from their captive, I suspect they will have to kill him. Given what they have apparently learned from Eva about the rapist rat, though, he probably needs killing.

Clearly, he's a very bright guy, yet he takes the picture off Sonia's refrigerator? She is a detective and sure to notice. I deduce from this that he WANTS to be caught. It also explains why he keeps hanging around her. What I am not sure of is if he wants to be caught because he has remorse, or he's a really bad guy and wants to shove "it" in Sonia's face.

The Linder story is getting better all the time. Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord ... somehow, I don't think he's gonna adhere to that tenet ....

Should be an interesting rest of the season.

Perhaps the brother will eventuality attempt to kill Sonya.

This season is much more complex than last. The first season was straightforward, with a known threat to catch. Right now I don't know what ANYBODY is up to! All I can be sure of is that a lot of death is coming.

I deleted my season series recording after the last episode. The first season seemed to have a cohesive storyline and purpose., but this second season just seems to be going in all kinds of different directions. I could accept the disturbing violence in the first season because it was part of the storyline. However, I feel it's for nothing more than shock value in season two.

This season is indeed scattershot, but I actually like it this way since it shows that all of these characters have their own compelling issues to deal with. There is enough development in each thread to maintain my full interest.

I took the liberty of watching this week's episode tonight via Comcast On Demand, and I'll just say that you will probably not be too fond of this one either.

I'm having trouble with this season, too. It's not like I favor cliche super-villain plots like season 1, but this season has very little in the way of linear story-telling that moves the characters from point A to point B.

Enjoyed it last year, but have fallen asleep this year trying to view it. With limited time it may be gone for me. Franka has hit the wall big time and after what she did to the young kid, yikes....
BTW: Diane Kruger is on with Craig Ferguson tonight, looks like a New Show...

Did anyone watch last week's episode? No comments in a week.


I finally did last night. All I can say is what a mess. There are way too many characters and way too many plots and subplots. I liked the first few episodes of this season. But they have gone from some sinister story lines to stories that are going nowhere and too many stories taking place at one time. Linder, the best character on the show last season, is hardly seen this season.

There are some major turning points in tomorrow's episode (which I saw last night), so I expect the rest of the season to be quite interesting. There is also more of the Linder brand of justice.

I don't see the too many story lines part. This is much easier to follow than Game of Thrones, but again I don't find that too hard to follow either. I think we may see a convergence of lines at some point. It all seems to be a "mess" but lots of things we are seeing are interconnected, it's just a matter of merging them.

I don't doubt most of the story lines will tie together. The Fausto guy is in the middle of at least 3 of them that we know of right now.

For me, the most fascinating part about this show is the relationship between Marco and Fausto. What is particularly intriguing is the question of how heavily Marco can walk on eggshells before Fausto cuts off protection of him.

By the way, did anyone notice that the female guard who helped Marco gain access to Tate is played by Brenda Bakke? The actress played the hot vixen Michelle in the movie Hot Shots! Part Deux and Lana Turner in L.A. Confidential. I would not have known if it weren't for an article that I read.

Marco's predictable wimping out on the revenge killing was the writers missing out on a really edgy opportunity

Marco did make the right decision and it makes me view the character more as a sensible person in an insane environment. I as well would want my son's killer to suffer in a dark and dreary prison, sans an eyeball of course. Death is an easy way out for that kind of trash.

I agree, and he also made two sensible decisions tonight in the motel room. For me, Marco's story is easily the most intriguing part of the show this season.

I thought last night's episode was a big improvement over the week before. I guess because we see some of the stories finally going somewhere.
