‘The Killing’ Season 2 Episode 8 ‘Off the Reservation’ Preview: What Happened to Holder?

The Killing season 2 continues next week with episode 8 “Off the Reservation.” The investigation into the casino is going to continue, but what will Sarah find when she goes looking for her partner?

“When Holder goes missing, Linden is desperate to find him. Stan takes matters into his own hands. Richmond returns to City Hall.”

<br>Joel Kinnaman an...The last episode “Keylela” showed Nicole Jackson delivering warnings to both Sarah and Holder. Fortunately for Sarah, hers wasn’t as brutal as Holder’s, as she had her men beat him up as Sarah listened on the phone. However, Sarah was facing her own problems with Child Protective Services checking on Jack after receiving a call about neglect. That was inevitable, and now Sarah and Jack are on the run from them. Will they catch up to her in “Off the Reservation”?

In the season 2 episode 8 promo (below), Sarah gives her own warning on the casino land: “This case will go federal. Feds won’t stop ’til they find what you’re hiding.” How will Nicole respond to that? Considering the power she seems to have, it’s likely she won’t be worried, but will that change with what happened to Holder? The police search the woods, and Sarah pushes her way through. It looks like they’ve found him, and Sarah tells Carlson, “You sat on your hands and did nothing while one of your cops was dying out in the field.” Uh-oh, what state will they find Holder in? It’s unlikely he’s dead, but he’s probably going to be out of commission for a while.

Meanwhile, the press asks Richmond where he was the night of Rosie’s murder, and he had told Gwen he’d tell them he was with her. It seems like he does just that, because she tells him, “You lied.” Since it has been revealed where he really was, you can’t really blame him for not wanting to tell the police that.

There’s also an “Off the Reservation” clip (below) out that does hint at how Holder may be doing after getting beaten up. Sarah goes to talk to the maid, Mary, from the casino and explains he couldn’t make it. Mary tells her she’s the one who found Rosie’s backpack. Since Sarah knows about the meeting, it seems that they already found him. Was he able to tell Sarah about it, or did she find the matchbook on him?
