10 Things ‘The Killing’ Can Do to Win Back Viewers

The Killing

Sunday night marked the return of ‘The Killing,’ AMC’s twisty mystery series that had viewers all abuzz over the question, “Who killed Rosie Larsen?” Had is the operative word here, as last season’s finale was met with a torrent of negative buzz after the creators failed to provide an answer to the mystery they had been teasing all season. 

Now that the show is back, fans and critics are divided over whether or not the show can earn back the trust of viewers. Will they stick around to see the resolution of the grim “Who killed Rosie Larsen?” mystery, or will they jump ship for more wholesome programming like, say, ‘GCB’? Here are some things the folks behind ‘The Killing’ could do to win back viewers.

1. Add dragons. Lots of dragons.

2. Move the show from rainy, gloomy Seattle to beautiful Cabo San Lucas.

5. Keep up with other TV shows by using a fake curse word in the title. Our suggestions: “S–t People on ‘The Killing’ Say” or “Who Killed that B– Rosie Larsen?”
