People going outside of their boundaries? How Charlotte shot and killed Tim and Tim's good friend dealt with it? In the start, Charlotte did not have the killer instinct, now she's being a ruthless "drug lord."

You can't ask what posters' problems are with the show and then say you haven't read the posts. Read the posts and then you will know.

We knew the possibility of Charlotte being a horrible person after what her husband had said to her just prior to his death. It was pretty much inevitable that we would eventually get a taste of how bad of a person she really is. I imagine the show will dig into her shady past.

I just hope that Tate doesn't somehow become a continuing threat into next season. I was disappointed that he wasn't killed off.

That would really suck (The Following). They would really have to have run out of ideas (The Following) to stoop that low. I suppose they could bring in an actor like Kevin Bacon (The Following) if they wanted to try something like that. But I doubt he (The Following) or any actor of his calibre would lower themselves to that level!

Looks like they may be setting up season two about the women of Juarez. It was a little chilling and depressing to see all those people looking for bodies. I bet that's a real thing.

With the total disaster the Tate storyline turned out to be, its good that its over. I liked this episode, it was focused on the characters again and not some overly complex, far fetched serial killer's plan, so I've got hopes the show has found its footing. Will be turning in next season to see.

It would be interesting if they did more about the cartel violence near the border, though it's hard to see Sonya and the El Paso police being involved unless the violence spilled across the border.

Agreed. I liked it better than most recent ones because of the character storylines.

Well, Charlotte seems to be doing her best to make that happen!

Yeah Charlotte tasted blood and she wants more, quite the lady. I love Frye's interaction with Adriana's family, too bad she's exclusive to women.

It seems that Sonya will fall for Marco, but I don't see it happening soon, perhaps until the end of next season, they are kind of "Brennan/Booth" type when they started.

Good episode this week.

What an amazing season finale! Nah, just kidding. A bit underwhelming actually.

Just setting up season 2, I'm glad they found Eva, she's severely damaged, I hope she recovers with the help of Linder

No Marco! don't become another Michael Schofield
post #434 of 493
I thought it was an excellent finale that makes me excited for next season.

Marco obviously won't go through on his plan, but I'm sure something will occur with the plot thread that will widen the mounting tension between him and Fausto. I expect the writers to have Marco call it off altogether, yet Fausto will have Tate killed anyway.

What was the song that they played during the silent finale?

I liked it too.

So for next season we have the women of Juarez, Marco's revenge, and Jessie's undead lez girlfriends missing sister. And the money, so I guess Daniel will be back as well.

I don't see Eva and Linder being "together", as she's pretty much made it clear she doesn't feel that way about him. But they are living in TV land, so I guess it's possible.

I'm pretty sure Marco's captain ordered Eva to be killed. I expect him to have a larger role next year.tongue.gif:p:p:confused:tongue.gif

Very nice song...except for when the 1960s psychadelic drugs kicked in - from about 4:00 to 5:10.

I agree. Although I thought The Bridge limped to the finish line this season, I'll still be onboard for next season because of how good Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir have been in the show.

The show careens from good to awful and so I'm undecided leaning towards dumping it. My wife is sticking with it which may lean me to continuing to watch. Otherwise, I know I would be done with it.

OTOH, I've read that there *is* a way to disable that "feature."

The El Paso newspaper has a story today from an interview with the producer. Key point is there will not be a serial killer next year.

post #445 of 493
That was an interesting read. I found it surprising that he basically admitted they did the first season without really knowing anything about El Paso or Juarez. Now he wants to learn about the area so they can come up with stories for next season. I really liked season one, but that interview makes me think he skated by without much research because it was mostly following the original "Bron". I'm not too confident that he is up to the task of keeping the show on track without the safety net of "Bron".

Showrunner Shakeup: 'The Bridge's' Meredith Stiehm Departs for 'Homeland'
4:00 PM PST 11/19/2013 by Lacey Rose /thehollywoodreporter

Co-showrunner Elwood Reid will run the second season of "Bridge" on his own, while Stiehm heads back to the Showtime drama for the series' recently renewed fourth season as well as a not-yet-ordered fifth.

Stiehm, a key member of the Showtime's series original writing staff, had left the CIA drama ahead of its third season to run FX's The Bridge with Elwood Reid. But in an unexpected twist, Stiehm is now stepping down as co-showrunner as the border drama moves forward with its second season. The Emmy-winning writer/producer has inked a deal with Homeland studio Fox 21 to return to the Homeland room for the series’ fourth and, pending an order, fifth season as an executive producer.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Meredith back, as she’s been an integral part of Homeland from the beginning," said Fox 21 president Bert Salke, adding: "She’s a fantastic writer and this deal returns her to this hugely valuable asset as well as allows us to develop with her down the road.”

According to multiple sources, Stiehm and Woods --who had worked together on her long-running CBS procedural Cold Case -- didn't see eye to eye on the direction of the series starring Diane Kruger and Demien Bichir. Reid will become the solo showrunner of the FX show, while Stiehm maintains her executive producer credit. In its first season with Stiehm, Bridge proved a solid performer for FX, tracking just shy of The Americans. In late September, it was granted a 13-episode second season, which is expected to premiere in the summer of 2014.

Though a showrunner shakeup is rarely ideal, the move proves advantageous for the staff of Homeland, lead by showrunner Alex Gansa. Stiehm, who was part of the initial six-member staff that was widely dubbed a “murderers row,” had been the only female voice in the room for the show’s first two seasons. (Judging Amy's Barbara Hall was brought aboard in Stiehm's absence.) As such, she was particularly hands-on in writing for the show’s lead, Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), and brought personal experience (through her sister) to the character’s bi-polar storyline. In her two-season tenure with the Emmy-winning series, Stiehm penned some of the drama's most acclaimed episodes, including season one’s “The Weekend” (where Carrie and Damian Lewis’ Brody go to her cabin) and, with Gansa, the season two finale, “The Choice.”

Eager to have her back in the fold, Gansa already enlisted Stiehm to co-write the series' third season finale episode, which is set to air Dec. 15. She is repped by WME and Felker Toczek.

Based on his earlier comments it sounds like Reid is the person most of us want running this show. I wonder if Stiehm wanted to introduce another serial killer?

FYI, the first season of the original Swedish/Danish version is now available on Hulu. Now if they would just get the original version of "The Killing."

I have all three series of the original Danish version of The Killing. I bought the BDs from Amazon.uk, thanks to having an all regions chip in my BD player. Unfortunately, the discs for all three series were Region B so those with unmodified US BD players were out of luck. The Danish show was great. If the BDs of the show ever become available in a form playable on unmodified US BD players, don't hesitate to buy them, you won't regret it.

Anyone see the British-French version, The Tunnel?
