I'm finally caught up. I don't even know where to begin to try and convey just how much I love this show.
Walter said:Agree on all points, Rhom. However, if any show has bought itself some leeway for a lame episode, it's this one. It was pretty much just all exposition, which is necessary, but not what most people come to the show for. I'm here for the characters.
And yeah, that final scene with the reveal was super lame. He finishes that line all by himself...? Whatever...
BTW, if anyone has subtitles for the scene with the old woman, I'd love to know what she said about Carcosa. I couldn't totally understand her... The hymn that eats time...?
Cohle shows Miss D a drawing/pic of the devil nets.
*Miss D: You know Carcosa?
Cohle: What is it?
Miss D: Him who eats time.
Him robes. . . It’s a wind of invisible voices.
Rejoice. Death is not the end.

You know Carcosa?

Walter said:Absolutely loved it.
That final sequence was really a lot more than I was expecting. What a solid, compelling way to end the show that calls back to what made it strong in the first place. These characters fundamentally changed over the course of the show. That's good TV.
I'd guess this: http://i.imgur.com/TjEDI7Jh.jpg Or at least, this was a man-made representation of it.
I don't think they'll be doing that. From what I know it's going to be completely different stories and characters, although that might have changed over time. The way I see it, the whole cult and serial murders stuff, as interesting as it was, was only a backdrop for showcasing Marty and Rust as characters. I'm sure there will at least be references to it in future seasons though.Johnstantine said:That makes a lot of sense. My screen was too dark for me to actually see that. I wonder if they're going to elaborate on it further down the line in other seasons by using it as a central plot point? I hope so because I've become really intrigued by it.
Oburi said:I'm surprised at how split the internet community is on the ending (or perhaps not ) People either loved it or hated it.
Don't forget that the Cthulhu Mythos were going to come into play and there would be supernatural elements! We learned nothing about the cult! What a shit show.Walter said:I've read several negative impressions on it from people who were expecting unrealistic things from this, like a BIG, CRAZY REVEAL that Marty's Father-in-Law was part of the cult and had secretly raped his daughter The people that seemed to be keyed in on the actual show, and not some convoluted meta-show within the show that they'd created, seemed to have been satisfied by it.

I don't know where you are in working on season 2, but has any of the reaction to this season informed what you're doing with the next?
Nic Pizzolatto: It's informed exactly one thing. It's that I realize I need to keep being strange. Don't play the next one straight.
Can you tell me anything at all about season 2?
Nic Pizzolatto: Okay. This is really early, but I'll tell you (it's about) hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.
Totally awesome and totally full of spoilers as well.Deci said:Truly amazing little montage video of True Detective currently airing on HBO. The Hat ft. Father John Misty & S.I. Istwa - The Angry River. Really well done, great showcase of the awesome cinematography in the show coupled with a really good song.
