** Goldie is a minor criminal from season 3, appearning in only the second, third, and fourth episodes, yet makes the most of his limited screentime to be one of the series's most depraved characters. Known around the streets for being a creepy thug, Goldie quickly establishes his wickedness when, after catching the homneless teen Bullet sneaking into his apartment to look for her best friend, he proceeds to brutally beat and rape her. When confronted by the police, Goldie is revealed to not only deal in child pornography, but also has a long record of [[WouldHurtAChild molesting]] and [[SerialRapist raping]] underage girls, with him shrugging them off as "misunderstandings", and claiming that one 13 year old girl was "begging for it".As a final way to screw with the police, Goldie publicly humiliates them by making them think he plans to assault a woman, before revealing she is actually his "mother". Though [[KarmaHoudini weaseling his way out of the majority of punishment for his crimes]], Goldie's crimes were all too apparent and disgusting to all who interacted with him, and he made his mark as the show's first wholly irredeemable villain.

* CompleteMonster: Curiously, none of the main killers. However, a minor character in the third season, Goldie, is a violent pimp and unrepentant serial rapist of underage girls, who keeps a collection of pornographic videos of homeless teens forced into prostitution. When he catches Bullet searching for Kallie in his building, he holds her at knifepoint, then brutally beats and rapes her. Worst of all he faces no punishment for this, only for his illegal porn videos.

** The Pied Piper, [[spoiler:James Skinner]], is
the main killers. However, despicable madman who serves as the ArcVillain for season 3. A seemingly-kind family man, the Piper is in actuality a brutal SerialRapist and SerialKiller of [[WouldHurtAChild teenage girls]], or even younger. With his career of evil starting when he beat a teenage prostitute to death [[DisproportionateRetribution for disrespecting him]], the Piper began kidnapping, raping, then [[SlashedThroat murdering]] teenage girls. Years ago, when the Piper realized a young boy may have spotted him committing his crimes, he seemingly planned to kill him, before settling for murdering the child's mother then [[FrameUp framing his father]] for it. Having amassed 17 confirmed victims over the years, while boasting dozens more, the Piper continues his spree throughout the season, raping and killing numerous more girls before viciously murdering [[spoiler:Bullet]] for discovering his identity. When cornered by Sarah Linden for his crimes, the Piper reveals his mindset that the girls he kills aren't even human; just "garbage" that doesn't deserve to live, while taunting her about that fact that she had fallen deeply in love with his public persona. Even when beaten, the Piper goads Linden into executing him, wanting to drag her down with him even after he was dead and gone. Though claiming at one point to "not kill children", this claim is immediately thrown back in his face with the fact that many of his victims were as young as 12, showing that his statement was either twisted hypocrisy, or just a method of screwing with his foes. A complete maniac who believed he was in the right for removing the stain of "trash" like [[DisposableVagrant the girls he killed]] from the world, the Pied Piper is shown to be nothing but a misogynistic psychopath who gets his kicks from murdering people no one will ever miss.

* BrokenBase: The Netflix revival season has received a very divided reception, with viewers either finding the new storytelling direction refreshing and compelling, or boring, repetitive and unsatisfying. The fact that much of the drama hinges on [[spoiler: Linden and Holder covering up Skinner's murder]], which takes up about as much time as the season's murder case in contrast to previous seasons, has quite a bit to do with it.




to:

* WinBackTheCrowd: The third season addressed and improved many of the issues that plagued the latter half of the Rosie Larsen arc, resulting in tighter plotting, less {{Padding}} and a more satisfying and less nonsensical [[TheReveal Reveal]]. Unfortunately, the bump in quality was not enough to save the show from cancellation.

* AssPull: Oh so much. Especially once it's revealed who killed Rosie. The actor's performance throughout the show until that point was certainly ''not'' what you'd expect from someone who knew they were responsible. Thankfully averted by the reveal of the Pied Piper, which had hints and foreshadowing leading to it, and it cast a significant part of the show into a new light.

** Several of the clues also get this effect after a while, as it turns out Rosie packed about a week's worth of adventures into her final 24 hours.


Added DiffLines:

* FandomRivalry: The ''Series/BreakingBad'' fans weren't happy with this show stealing its attention, especially when it looked like ''Breaking'' would get a truncated final season in favor of ''The Killing'' getting a bigger budget from AMC (luckily, this didn't happen).

* MoralEventHorizon:
**The Pied Piper ([[spoiler: James Skinner]]) crossed it when he snapped and raped then murdered a teenage girl. Afterwards, he never looked back and kept doing to to dozens more over a number of years.
** Goldie crosses it when he attacks and rapes Bullet.
** Holder himself felt he crossed this line when he stole from his own kid nephew to pay for his drug addiction.

** The murders of the Pied Piper in season 3.3; the victims are raped and then have their throats cut ear to ear with a serrated blade, so deeply several of the victims are almost decapitated.
