“The Killing” finale — what was that??

(I’m back from vacation, which was lovely and which brought me a nice bit of trivia: My friend Amy, who is an anesthesiologist in the Bay Area, told me the other night that she went to med school with Ken Jeong, known for his appearances in the “Hangover” movies, and was in fact his cadaver partner. She says he was funny back then, too.)
OK, so what the hell was that last night? Why would a show that’s spent the entire season teasing us with the question “Who killed Rosie Larson”? pull back on answering the question at the last minute? If Richmond didn’t kill Rosie, who did? (I still say Gwen.) Why would it be unusual that Richmond would return from his mysterious middle-of-the-night disappearance “all wet”? (Isn’t everybody in this show, set in a Seattle that resembles a never-ending soapless car wash, constantly all wet?) Why is it OK for Mitch to leave her two surviving children? What on earth was that bizarro scene between the teacher’s wife and Stan at the candy machine? What makes Linden think she can just pop off to Sonoma two weeks late and Sonoma Fiance (whose name I’ve forgotten, as he didn’t matter much) will be glad to see her? Why is Holder such a crummy cop? Did Linden really go to Richmond’s apartment just to yell at him? Why wasn’t Rosie’s sneaker found the first time? How did this show manage to start off so well, and yet deteriorate so badly?
I’m bummed, dear readers. You?
