With Rosie's body now identified, Det. Sarah Linden and Det. Stephen Holder begin the painstaking task of recreating her movements, learning about her circle of friends and tracing her movements after she left the Halloween dance at her high school on Friday night. They question Councilman Darren Richmond who says he has no knowledge as to why Rosie would have been in the trunk of a car registered to his mayoralty campaign. He refuses to play politics with the situation. Linden interviews Jasper Ames whose father interrupts the questioning. At Rosie's school, Holder learns about the cage, a place in the school basement where the kids go for privacy. It may also be the crime scene. The Larsons tell their two boys that their sister is dead. Written by garykmcd

The Killing - The Cage
3 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second episode is really potent dramatically with how the Larsens must deal with the loss of Rosie, telling their sons and dealing with the police searching through their house for evidence. Meanwhile, Sarah and Stephen question kids at the school, hoping someone can provide crucial details that will lead them to Rosie's killer. This episode, instead, leads Stephen to a location where a bloody act took place in the school…in a "party place" where naughty kids do naughty things called "the cage." This new story thread keeps the viewer off balance as one tragedy only leads the detectives to other unexpected developments. The political campaign of Richmond goes through a series of ebbs and flows just in this one episode as what appears to be a case where the campaign car that held Rosie's body could have been stolen and the councilman could possibly save face with a crucial ally linked to the unions in the city only for his fortunes to falter after a reporter seems to continue to get secrets within the camp from a mole source. It appears as if one of Richmond's close company, Yes man, Jamie (Eric Laden) or his lover and manager, Gwen (Kristin Lehman), could very well be opposing him behind his back. The show alternates between the Larsens coping with loss, the political roller-coaster of Richmond's campaign, and Sarah having to determine if she will stay in Seattle to help Stephen catch Rosie's killer or leave for San Diego. The discovery of the cage and a crime scene certainly might halt Sarah's trip to a new home.
