Episode 8 – Try, that aired last week on AMC, broke the show’s records in the ratings of IMDb, with a rating of 8.8/10 stars, based on 85 reviews from different users. The rating broke the series records of all seasons. Updated: With more reviews from other users, Try went down to 8.5/10 stars and is no longer the record of the series. Episode 9, which aired Sunday night, got 9.1/10 stars based on a few reviews, but the numbers can go down again when more users will rate the episode.
‘Try‘ also received a lot of good reviews from critics. Sean McKenna of TVFanatic stated: “You can certainly add ‘Try‘ to the list of good episode on this roller coaster ride of cops, killers and the heightened drama surrounding the characters involved. I really can’t get over how well done this return season of The Killing has been crafted and executed. If it can deliver a solid ending after all this rising tension and drama, not only will it be the best of the seasons, but it’ll have me craving and clamoring for season four.” Paulo Laze from We Got This Covered said: “This was hands down the best episode of The Killing yet. It’s been an intermittently decent season, with moments of greatness and infamy, but I’m glad Veena Sud and her entourage finally buckled down and delivered an exquisite 42-minute long extravaganza.”
