The mystery on The Killing continued tonight with "What You Have Left," season 1 episode 6. Sarah and Holder continued their investigation into Bennet, who is looking more and more like their killer, and the Larsens had to bury their daughter.
As Rosie is prepared for the funeral, the Larsens get ready themselves at home. Every scene with this family screams heartbreak.
Sarah continues her investigation, but insists she's leaving Seattle that night. Jack wants to stay and says they're not going to be on the flight anyway. Of course, he's probably right, unless the rest of the season takes place over the same day.
Holder arrives at work and pulls a suit out of his trunk. When he enters the station, they're still trying to find a way to get something on Bennet with the ammonia and his past.
Richmond tries to talk to Gwen at work, but she focuses on work until she accuses him of not trusting her. Jamie interrupts and tells Richmond they could gain momentum that night. Principal Meyers stops by and tells Richmond the police are looking at Bennet. She also wants his endorsement for school board election in the spring.
One of Bennet's neighbors tells them he saw Rosie enter Bennet's house the night she was murdered.
The funeral on The Killing
Bennet and Amber are getting the baby's room ready, and he insists he's okay with them having a girl. Sarah and Holder show up, asking if Rosie showed up Friday. He says she came to return a book, but he's looking more and more guilty. He has trouble remembering which book exactly, but won't let them look without a warrant. If he is innocent, he's doing a terrible job of proving it.
Richmond, Gwen, and Jamie figure out how to deal with Bennet being a suspect and his ties to them. However, Richmond insists he's not going to turn on Bennet. Jamie says he's "dead girl in a trunk," with the connection the campaign has to the murder.
While Sarah heads to the funeral, Holder talks to someone about who he is going to be and about the case. The man tells Holder about Stan's shady past. The Larsens continue to break hearts in their scenes as they carry Rosie into the church.
It turns out that Bennet was still at the dance when Rosie showed up at his place, so who let her in? Richmond confronts Sarah about Bennet's status in the investigation, but she doesn't tell him anything.
Amber's sister tells Holder she got to her place late at night, upset about Bennet. She doesn't think he's right for her sister, and says that Amber thought Bennet was keeping secrets. She says Bennet has made Amber "shun her own family." Could Amber be a suspect?
Richmond meets with Senator Eaton, who tells him people are watching him. However, some are worried he doesn't have what it takes to win. He tells him to stay away from the teacher. Will Richmond listen to Eaton's advice? Is it good advice? It does seem too early on in the series for Bennet to be the murderer, unless they circle through a few suspects before returning to him. Perhaps Richmond doesn't need to cut Bennet out of his life.
The Larsens bury Rosie in the cemetery, and Bennet shows up at the wake to pay his respects, as does Jasper's father. Belko watches over the children, and Terry tells him he's not part of the family. Belko steps away when he receives a phone call, and he tells Stan his friend says Bennet's the one they're after. Stan approaches Bennet.
One of Bennet's neighbors calls Sarah about a man watching everyone through the telescope. He insists he looks at the stars, but it's obvious he's not. He says he saw Bennet outside around midnight Friday with a girl wrapped in a blanket not moving. He saw two people carrying her into a van, and the second person was small - like a woman. Could it be Amber? Holder proposes that Amber killed Rosie and Bennet helped her cover it up. When Sarah and Holder knock on their door, Amber remains sitting in a corner, holding a hammer. She's certainly looking very suspicious.
Sarah and Holder head to pick up Bennet, and he tells her about Stan's past. She tells him to call Bennet.
Stan offers to give Bennet a ride home so he can tell him more about Rosie and he can get a break from everything. As they leave, a phone rings on the table. That's certainly ominous. It's not looking good for Bennet either, when Stan "misses" his exit.
Meanwhile, Adams points out the weaknesses of Richmond's campaign, but Richmond defends himself. When he brings up the Seattle All-Stars, Adams focuses on Bennet's involvement. Adams certainly knows how to plant doubts in voters' heads and gain votes for himself.
Sarah and Holder find out that Bennet left with Stan, and she leaves to go after them. Will Stan return to his past self? Will he make a move before the police can figure out just what happened? Could his actions spell trouble for the investigation?
