'The Killing' recap: Makin' Good Decisions! Starring Belko Royce
Over at the Larsens's, things are the usual nonstop cavalcade of fun. Aunt Terry moves in to replace the vanished Mitch as the household's "single functioning adult," so the kids spend most of the time blackly hating the bummer that is their lives.
They didn't have very far to take Belko Royce for booking, considering his Jack Ruby act was right outside the station, but that doesn't mean that Belko Royce doesn't go pretty far all on his own. Crazy, I mean. He goes very crazy. Shoot your mom, shoot a public figure, shooting spree inside a police station crazy. After a soft interrogation by Holder, poor old wonderful awful Belko Royce gets a visit from Stan that's pretty heartbreaking, once he realizes that Stan has come to think of him as a sort of rabid animal that's outlived its usefulness, rather than what he really is, which is a three-way cross between The Blind Side, Of Mice & Men, and like the perfect date.
