Season 4 amps up the misery, assuming that it's inherently the same as profundity. Bleakness doesn't inherently make something deep and compelling, especially not when your central character isn't well-drawn enough to support all this unhappiness.
Like its broken characters, this broken drama kept plugging away, trying to achieve that one story that would validate all the bad choices it had made in the past.
The Killing still has some pulling power, even if the initial thrill of Season 1 is long since gone.
It was a show whose parts never added up to a consistently great whole, even though they very well could have if the show had just gotten out of its own way. The Killing was good, sometimes very good, but never as good as it could've been.
Just in time for its end, The Killing became the show that it promised to be.
