My Suspect List


Since it’s The Kiling, there’s always this prime suspect, but we also know that almost everyone is a suspect, so I decided to make a suspect list, to see who may be the killer of those 17 girls (including Ashley Kwon, the girl that was found dead in the beginning of the season premiere) and Trisha Seward. So let’s start, Shall we?


1. Current Prime Suspect: Joe Mills


Joe is currenrly the prime suspect in The Killing, but it doesn’t mean anything, as we know the series so far. We know that he produced the DVDs by Tiffany, one of the DVDs’ girls. Now we know that he’

s also got Kallie’s cellphone, another DVD star, whose mother, Danette, is Joe’s Girlfriend. If he really is the killer, then my theory would be that He is keeping Kallie in some place. We know Kallie called her mom one night and that in the same night Joe left and came back in the morning. (When Danette asks him where he was, he says “I had things to take care of.”) I guess is that he heard Danette’s phone and saw it was Kallie, so he went to where he keeped her and shut her up, maybe even killed her.




2. Sheldon (Goldie) Willis

Goldie was the suspect in the first episodes, and may be the killer too. We have to remember that the DVDs were found in his apartment, and that he assulted Bullet at the end of the 2 hour season premiere, with a knife pointed to her throat, just like all the bodies were found. But he seems so stupid and unsteady, so I wonder if he can make it to be a serial killer for years, on the same path.


3. James Skinner

tk-s3-cast-skinner-590James Skinner may be a possible option for the killer’s role. We know that when he was Linden’s partner, they put Ray Seward in jail for the murder of his wife, Trisha. When they did it, Linden tried to convince him that Seward isn’t the killer, but he wouldn’t listen, and he doesn’t listen now, neither, Maybe he framed Seward for the crime he committed. He could have even any relations with Seward before the case, something that Ray maybe knows about, and maybe that’s why he told Skinner to come with his family to his execution, and also requested to being hanged (Hanging is the closest way of dieing to cutting the throat). But, we also know that he and Linden had a romance together, and I don’t think she would have done it without being sure that he is innocent.


4. Evan Henderson (Death-row gaurd)

It’s may be unlikely that he’d be the killer, but what we know so far is that he refused to sign up to Seward’s execution, and that someone slipped Seward a razor-blade one day (During episode 3). that’s something to think about.


5. Pastor Mike

Pastor Mike may also be the killer. We know that the guy who produces the tapes (most likely to be Joe, but not sure he produced all of them) is nice to the DVDs’ stars, and Mike is very nice to the kids he hosts in the Beacon house. This seems a bit stretch but we have to see where it leads us.


Of course there maybe many suspects, as Reddick, Danette, Becker, Twitch and more, because almost everyone is a suspect in The Killing, but I brought you the most ‘likely to be the killer’ suspects. Stay tuned at th blog, our FB page, and watch The Killing new episodes every Sunday night at 9PM on AMC. (Eastern time)

Q&A – Peter Sarsgaard ( Ray Seward )

Peter Sarsgaard, who plays Ray Seward on AMC’s The Killing, talks about getting into the mind of his character and what drew him to the

Q: The question of whether Ray Seward is innocent lingers over the show. Did you wonder about that yourself?

A: That doesn’t really matter, because he’s a person that is filled with a lot of self-loathing. I knew from [Executive Producer] Veena [Sud] whether he was literally guilty or innocent of the crime for which he was in jail, and that this is a guy that in some ways does not believe he deserves to live.

Q: Ray Seward is soft-spoken but tormented, angry but calm. What is the secret to playing a character who’s strongest emotions are largely internal?

A: People think that you have to actually imagine yourself killing someone or pulling someone’s eyeball out to play some of these characters. Well, you can have wanted to pull someone’s eyeball out. I’ve only been in one fight in my life, and the guy was much larger than me — I was furious at him because he had made fun of an epileptic friend of mine who was having a seizure. The amount of hate that I felt for him is like the amount that you need to play Ray Seward. If you’ve ever felt jealousy, envy, anger, hate, sadness, and self-loathing, maybe you could play Ray Seward.

Q: Did you and Veena have any back-and-forth discussions about the specific vision you each had for the character?

A: The only thing we had any discussion about was what I looked like. When I came in, I had really long hair and a huge beard, and I said, “You know, I think he could look like this.” But she really wanted to see my face. She knew this was a character that was potentially inaccessible, and she wanted people to really be able to access him. So she convinced me to cut my hair, and I was like, “If we’re talking about seeing me, how about we shave my head?” And then I had a big beard and a shaved head, and I looked a little bit like Hugh Jackman in Les Miserables. We actually kept it that way for a little bit. We sculpted the beard so I almost looked like a biker, and we did a mugshot, which is in the show. Then we shaved the beard, and we really never looked back.

Q: The scene in the Season 3 Premiere in which Seward attacks the prison chaplain stuck in a lot of people’s minds. What was your reaction when you first read the scene?

A: I was like, “He did, what? The chaplain?” Then I thought, well, maybe they’re going to cast someone who’s an asshole. But this [actor] was a beautiful man. He had been on the Canadian track team as a miler, and as a fellow runner, I totally identified with him. But when I read that scene, I was like, well, I guess I hurt him, but I must just bonk his head on the bar, now no one is going to mess with me in prison. But then, when the stunt guys did the scene, they were splashing blood and I was like, “Wow, this is really violent.”

Q: You’ve said before that you don’t believe in the death penalty. How did this role affect that perspective?

A: It was one of the things that drew me to playing the role. I didn’t want to play someone who was either saying “I’m not guilty” or constantly saying “I’m so sorry” and begging for forgiveness, because I sort of thought that neither one has to do with the death penalty. I don’t care if someone is guilty as sin, I don’t care if they’re apologetic, I still don’t want them executed. And I liked that I would have an opportunity to play a scenario that made it more difficult for people.

Q: Were you wary of accepting such a dark role when you first heard about it?

A: The great thing about playing these characters is I get to have these feelings that are not acceptable to show in life, for one reason or another. And most of the time when I come off the set, I’m in a fantastic mood. It’s a classic therapy thing. I think it’s incredibly healthy.
