Episode #13: Night Finds You
2 days ago
The second episode of True Detective might put naysayers to shame. "Night Finds You" is weird, quirky, and ends with one of the most memorable moments in the show's run. Before discussing the final scene, however, Charlie and Andrew go over some other important issues. Would this have been better as a two-hour premiere? What's up with the Lynchian vibe? What can we infer about the characters' psychosexual issues? And what exactly is going on there at the end? Plus, Charlie names his first official suspect, and the gang inducts a few honorary members onto the Detect This team.
