aiiee: ItchyMcDoogle: I think all signs lead to Hart. Even if he is not in on it there is someone in his inner circle who is ( Wife and/or Stepfather). I think when we find out why his oldest Daughter has been messed up in the head up since the get go we will find out who is the Yellow King. I think Harts wife knows more then she lets on.

I don't think Rust has anything to do with it and is just trying to find out what the heck is going on and who the killers are. But then agian Rust is majorly farked up( Hallucinations, Heavy Drug Use when undercover and pill popper in the early episodes, Very farked up former home life and work life when he worked narco),. Id be really surprised if it turns out Rust had anything to do with it. But still the guy has deep issues.

Im both bummed that there are only 3 episodes left but I want to see them dammit. But I agree its nice to have a week to chew on the episodes since they give you so much to think on

Great Show I hope it finishes off great that has me the most worried is how it will end

Holy crap, I forgot all about the daughter's Barbie/Ken dolls and the drawings.   That ties in with her behavior as a teen. She was raped as a child but somehow survived and didn't tell anyone about it, because it was Marty, her Dad, who she loved, who turned her over to the rapists.


No farking way.

Grandpa maybe?  I'm going to go back and watch the lake house scene.

HawgWild: I haven't watched the show yet, and I deliberately avoid anything written about it.

I take it I should start watching ...


Really, one of the finest television experiences I've ever had. I hadn't paid any attention to it until I started seeing it mentioned everywhere on the internet and decided to give it a try. Woody and Mat weren't a consideration because I've never been a fan of Woody and I've never consciously seen Mat in anything.

So I decided to HBO-GO the first four episodes and I was hooked *instantly* -- INSTANTLY. The performances of the actors are beyond incredible and the cinematography reminds you why it is called the ART of film-making.

Do yourself a favor and watch the show.

Do you

vygramul: Occam's Disposable Razor: gilgigamesh: DamnYankees: vygramul: True, and that actually puts a damper on this 5-cops hypothesis. That seems too easy, too.

But I think there has to be a tie-in with that photo of 5 horseman. I remember they lingered on that for a while, and never talked about it. It's such a weird photo. It can't be random.

That actually may be a red herring. Iirc that was in Eunice, LA, and that was a depiction of how they celebrate Mardi Gras there. A photo like that, odd as it may seem out of context, would actually be fairly commonplace.

I am actually from Eunice (getting a kick), and that photo was not at all odd to me. They did their homework there, it's authentic.

The scene with the abandoned church was a bit off though, no way that was shot anywhere near Eunice. Still, it's clear the writers have spent some time in the area. It's very well done.

This is part of why nothing's obscure on Fark. Who'd have expected we'd have someone from Eunice on here?


Personally, I'm much more surprised by the fact that the rural little area where I grew up is the setting for this fantastic show. Lots of towns they mention during the investigation are so obscure that people from the northern part of the state probably haven't even heard of some of them. They nailed the culture, the pervasive Catholicism that underlies everything, even all the last names and family dynamics. Very odd choice of a setting, but it works for the story, and it sure is cool to see from another point of view.

vygramul: Lsherm: elvisaintdead: vygramul: I thought it was a Christian or Catholic school. Isn't that where they visited early on and a guy on a riding mower was there?

it was a Catholic school - the guy on the mower said he was sent by the parish to cut the grass

which also means he probably has a pretty good idea of what is going on in the building if he visits every few weeks and inspects the propery

I think it was a public school.   Counties in Louisiana are called parishes.

I thought it was Catholic because of the statue of Mary under which Cohle goes to get to the room with the devil catchers. But back then, I could believe a Southern school still allowed blatant displays of religion.


Did I hallucinate the scene where they say that the school was part of Tuttle's ministry? Or is everyone else forgetting?

Gotta agree with silvervial on this one:  I didn't see the first three episodes until a week after they'd aired - I'd heard about it, but also thought - meh....kinda over cop stuff.  But saw Dallas Buyer's club that weekend that TD was on a 'break' (I think it might have been the night Golden Globes aired...but there was a one week break in the schedule)..and have been impressed with Woody Harrelson for years (He seriously does not get his due as an actor.)  About a half hour in, I was hooked:  It's a seriously well-crafted, well acted, and beautifully shot show.

You will NOT be disappointed!

No, he's not and neither is the preacher Theriot. However, the iconography inside the Light of Way school is totally catholic, not evangelical Christian, and Theriot crosses himself, albeit backwards, when he is talking to Cohle, which struck me as strange.

Normally, there would be no Papist trappings anywhere around evangelicals. Hell, a lot of evangelicals don't even consider catholics to be "christian" -- though I have no idea why, since catholicism is the original christian church.

I'm still amazed that I am so obsessed with this show in only 5 episodes. This has never happened so quickly to me before. I think I've watched the first 5 eps at least four times since last week's episode aired and I'm still finding things I missed. This is a show where you *cannot* take your eyes from the screen or you miss something. You can't just have it on in the background or be messing on the internet or whatever while it's on, unless you just don't care about the deeper stuff (like my hubby, unfortunately).

I'd agree with you, when I watched that scene it never occurred to me as anything other than "county" terminology (but I grew up near Louisiana and am familiar with the word used like that).

It's kind of the whole idea of Luther and the Reformation.  The Catholic Church was so corrupted that the Protestants had to get back to "real" Christianity.  Thus, many Protestants don't regard Catholics as "real" Christians.  That's obviously an over-simplification of history, but that's about the grasp most frothing Evangelicals have of it.

They also deeply misunderstand Catholic reverence for Mary, which they believe to be idol worship, when in reality it's just that she's Jesus' mom and who isn't willing to do their mom a favor?

2014-02-23 01:49:06 PM  
Imdb has the lawnmower man in 3 eps so he's involved, or else what was the point of that scene? Lawmowing is a symbol in the show anyway.

Also I think Harts oldest daughter is Marie fontenot. She's still around somewhere they never found her. She's the same she as his oldest daughter, it would explain her drawings and dolls etc. It would explain her saying "You're parents are dead they died in an accident" while playing dolls. Also Hart said he met danny 7 years before, the same time Marie went missing.

So Danny fontenot and the lady with the headaches that said all the weird stuff know something.

Yes, that's what I meant by catholic iconography. There are very Mary-like if not actually Mary statues all over that school, which would be appropriate if it was a parochial school, but it's not. It was owned and run by Tuttle Ministries, an (I'm assuming) evangelical protestant ministry. Protestants don't revere Mary at all and don't cross themselves either.

Both those things stick out to me, so they probably have some significance in the central mystery.

In Louisiana they have parishes instead of counties.  In every other state, a parish is just a Catholic thing.

Speaking of Danny Fontenot, when Marty was giving him his good-natured "hell of a fastball" or whatever speech, as friendly as anyone could be in an uncomfortable re-meeting like that, Danny says "He talks to me like I'm a child" -- which I thought was a very odd thing to say, since I didn't see it as patronizing at all, and it was odd that Danny would be hostile within seconds of meeting Marty. I also found the way Danny's wife (?) spoke kind of off, too, her speech pattern.

Anyway, there seems to be a kind of conflation between Dora Lange and Marie Fontenot, a telescoping, if you will, that I find strange. When the detectives are filling in Marty and Rust after a day out canvassing, they talk about both in such a way that at first it seems they are saying that Danny is Dora's uncle, not Marie's. I've watched that scene over and over and there's no pause between speaking of Dora and speaking of Marie.

They interviewed *Dora's* mother, not Marie's. Marie's mother went to Vegas and is still there, supposedly. They also interviewed Marie's uncle and aunt.

This is part of that conflating of Marie and Dora that is going on, and I wonder if the show did it deliberately, making it very easy to get the two cases confused:

1. The mother interviewed, who had all the medication, headaches, messed up fingers, and the picture of the five men on horseback is DORA'S mother.

2. The devil's net was found on the property of MARIE'S aunt and uncle (the man crippled up with "strokes").

Marie Fontenot: young girl missing since 1990, presumed to have gone off with her father, whose police missing person case file consists of one page and one picture. Considered "reported in error" -- just like that long list Cohle later (in 2002) finds in the computer records.

Dora Lange: prostitute found dead at the tree with antlers on.

elvisaintdead: Lsherm: Counties in Louisiana are called parishes.

true dat.  I want to say in a pull-back shot they showed the marquis for the schools and it was a "St. somethingsoranother" - an instantly identifiable catholic name.  but that could be my imagination.

also, here's a couple of pics I yanked off of Paste supporting marty being the killer:

Funny you should mention antlers.

I just remembered that Hart means "deer", hence antlers. But if Hart is the deer does that mean victim, or perpetrator? Hmmm....

My roommate is big on this theory. The lawnmower guy has as scar on his face and IIRC Dora was seen conversing with a large man with a scar on his face. Ledoux seems to be missing that particular facial feature. I would agree with you that he may be more involved than just a simple lawnmower.

I could be wrong because I have not re-watched episode two since it first came out

A Louisiana native here.

South Louisiana is predominately Catholic while the further north you get in the state the more redneck it becomes then the more Baptist/Protestant the population.

Eunice I would venture to guess, due to location, is mainly Catholic.

Baton Rouge is redneck but Lafayette is coon ass.

I love the show and while it is a bit over the top in some things concerning Louisiana the rest is just great acting.

No, he's not and neither is the preacher Theriot. However, the iconography inside the Light of Way school is totally catholic, not evangelical Christian, and Theriot crosses himself, albeit backwards, when he is talking to Cohle, which struck me as strange.

Normally, there would be no Papist trappings anywhere around evangelicals. Hell, a lot of evangelicals don't even consider catholics to be "christian" -- though I have no idea why, since catholicism is the original christian church.

I'm still amazed that I am so obsessed with this show in only 5 episodes. This has never happened so quickly to me before. I think I've watched the first 5 eps at least four times since last week's episode aired and I'm still finding things I missed. This is a show where you *cannot* take your eyes from the screen or you miss something. You can't just have it on in the background or be messing on the internet or whatever while it's on, unless you just don't care about the deeper stuff (like my hubby, unfortunately).


I'm sorry your hubby doesn't care about the deeper stuff.

Have you tried doggy?

/sorry, had to...

No, you didn't *have* to, you *wanted* to. Don't pull a Marty and be in denial about your motivations...

Hoban Washburne: vygramul: They also deeply misunderstand Catholic reverence for Mary, which they believe to be idol worship, when in reality it's just that she's Jesus' mom and who isn't willing to do their mom a favor?

Yeah, and they also equate the reverence that Catholics give the Pope and saints with idolatry.


As well as hanging Christ on the cross, which amounts to idolatry.  Not that the Romans cared.
