Just caught up, havent sat down since before xmas...siperb unpredictable mess of an ending! And leaves it open for season 4....( hopeful emotion)

Well now I just want to cry as there is nothing else to watch...(sobs into decaf tea...)

I've avoided reading any of the messages here in case I read something that will give it away. I've just watched season 1 on Netflix back to back while I've been in my sickbed but Netflix don't have season 2. Does anyone know anywhere online I can find it? I want to watch it tonight (still from my sickbed) and can't find it.

Thanks.

I found the music to The Bridge a little irritating.

Now that for The Killing really set the series off and enhanced the programmes. You could be engrossed in the action and then the music began to start up adding to the dramatic tension. The closing music at the end: superb.

I agree mummytime- Reinhardt would never have been brought to justice, not that any punishment atones for what he had done, so Lund took the only action she could to prevent him doing it again. He even said to her that she'd taught him how not to get caught in future. Grim.

I think I like Borgen best, mainly because there's no killing involved! But The Bridge is v close second, because I love Saga! (and the music at the end!)

I don't think she did lose control. I think she just thought; no one else was going to stop him, and she wanted to do something right for children. So to protect them she shot him. She felt she had been a bad mother to Mark, but he seemed to be coming right. So she just did what had to be done.

Reuthen was initially going to sort it out, but then the director of security (?) made it clear to him that he wanted the compnay, and the money and power that came from it, and wouldn't really do anything to threaten it. Zeuthen isn't even leaving the company as Maja wanted or even having a long holiday, just a weekend away.

Lund was different because she was uncorruptible, so the only one who would do the "right" thing.

I actually thought that she would shoot herself rather than go on the run.

All that-come "back when you´ve cleared your name"-that could only happen with Zeuthan on board, couldn´t it?

ClaraDeLaNoche Mon 17-Dec-12 22:39:56

Loved it but the Lund I know and love would never have lost control like that. One sniff of happiness and she's away. There are too many baddies in Denmark, it is a rotten state.

Goodbye my friends and taks. Not watching Borgen as I missed the first series. I miss all things Danish.

diddl Mon 17-Dec-12 20:59:37

I can see how they were suited.

I think it just seemed improbable her shooting Nielson.

I guess it was a way of ending her career without killing her!

Matsikula Mon 17-Dec-12 20:51:56

Ah, I quite liked that, the ending was kind of transcendent and weird, theatrical language, going up in the clouds. It fitted, for me. Though I suspect the subtitles are very poorly translated, so maybe the tone was a bit different in Danish.

diddl Mon 17-Dec-12 19:13:57

It was all the lovey dovey "darling" near the end.

Matsikula Mon 17-Dec-12 18:41:23

Why was the Borch thing ridiculous Diddl?

He's obsessive and impulsive - a perfect fit! And real life cops have a v high divorce rate, especially those who do undercover and detective work. Clearly all those hours spent in parked cars do something to the libido.

carabos Mon 17-Dec-12 18:29:18

Lund and Borsch should have got Zeuthen involved to cover up sort out the death of Reinhardt. If he was told that R was the killer of Louise which had resulted in Emilie being kidnapped he would have made it go away.

You can do that sort of thing when you're a billionaire wink.

Thanks MooMin! First time i've laffed since around 11pm saturday night when I realised that, yet again (watched killing 1 as well) I had been conned into watching such a load of old cod. 10 hours of my life! And that's not including all the hours I spent wondering and ruminating about the possible suspects and motivations. Never never again.

MooMinCow Mon 17-Dec-12 17:00:22

Some more light hearted relief here smile

(Gutted its all over and only one Homeland left to go. My weekends won't be the same hmm)

SugaricePlumFairy Mon 17-Dec-12 13:58:43

Nooooooooooooo! what a shite ending. shock

I like my endings settled and happy, not on a bloody plane to Iceland.

I don't believe she would have lost control of herself like that.

This cannot be the end. < sob!>

DistantShip Mon 17-Dec-12 13:01:34

Donkeys, what a great premise! A sort of Nordic reboot of the old Equalizer!

I too didn't sleep after a 4 episode binge ended at midnight last night.

She has a few fresh excuses not to interact with others, and I too saw the ending as an escape for her.

DonkeysInTheStableAtMidnight Mon 17-Dec-12 11:16:01

Clever though if "no more Lund" meant no more Sarah Lund of the Copenhagen force but she lives under an alias to fight another day.

DonkeysInTheStableAtMidnight Mon 17-Dec-12 11:14:03

I doubt it would even reach court what with Zeeland lawyers and having the public prosecutor taking orders from the Justice Minister, answerable to Kristian ie all in each other's pocket.

diddl Mon 17-Dec-12 09:06:55

Would the pic have held up in court or would it all have been circumstantial?

I don´t think that any of them came off well, tbh.

I wasn´t expecting a happy ending-think I would rather Lund have die than be a fugitive murderer.

DonkeysInTheStableAtMidnight Mon 17-Dec-12 09:02:11

Mark would eventually tire of Lund being doting granny anyway...

PM didn't exactly shine at the end did he?

diddl Mon 17-Dec-12 07:23:26

I thought the whole Borch thing was ridiculous tbh.

And when he kept calling her "darling" at the end-wtaf??

So, she let her son down again!

I agree that she wanted justice but part of me thinks it was an attempt to run away from her own life too.

A new baby, a new life with Borch means letting people in and she couldn't hack it.

Cynical I know but it was the perfect out for her.

Glad it wasn't just me wondering why there were no lights.

Oh my god! Just finished it.

Going to catch up with this thread in the morning when I've processed my thoughts. shock
