JerseyTim: The detectives know that Rust isn't the killer. In fact, they know who the killer is. That's not what they're after. This whole thing has been an investigation to get Rust and Marty on charges of filing a false police report in 1995. It ends with the two of them getting busted for that.

The last scene is swelling dramatic music. It's a dark, wet hallway. Our heros slowly walk down the hall to the iron bars at the end. When they get there, they undergo their final redemption - paying a $200 fine to the petty cash office for their grievous misdeeds.

The end.

I mentioned this in a thread about Ukraine the other day but it still amuses me so I'll type it again. The other day I was talking on the phone to my 78-year-old Ukrainian mother about the protests going on over there and she hadn't heard the first thing about it. This didn't surprise me cause my mom is 78 years old and doesn't really keep up with current events; even 30 years ago she pretty much only watched daytime soap operas and Quincy, so you know, that's my sweet old clueless mom. So I was telling her about what I knew about events in Ukraine and I said something about how history repeats itself. Mom immediately replies, "Well it's like Rust Chole said in True Detective last week, time is like a flat circle" and my mind was blown.

I was like Mom did you just drop a Rust Chole quote on me in a conversation about a completely unrelated matter? My hippest friends aren't that hippy hip!

It's made me reassess everything I thought I knew about the woman. Now I need to get her to make me a mix tape or something.

juvandy: This episode lost me a bit.  It had none of the dread, and relatively little of the tension, of the past episodes, except for two scenes.  It felt like they were tying up a bunch of loose ends, but I'm not sure it was necessary to waste the whole episode on it.  The whole Beth storyline?  The only way that ends up being worthwhile is if she's a plant.  I bet it's her on the screen in the preview of 7 (the daughter might be too obvious).  Then again, a lot that happened in this episode was a bit too obvious...

Hope they get 7 back on track.

Yep, it was just a regular police show tonight. I hope that shuts up all the dimwitted fanboys who think Cthultu is going to bust out of his arctic slumber or something.

OooShiny: alwaysjaded: We need an after discussion thread but I suck at writing headlines so I've got about as much of a chance greening one as Cohle does cracking a smile.

That's your headline.

Hmmm. Let's see....

Will the Yellow King finally be revealed? Will Hart have to do more laundry? Will Cohle do his Farker impression when simply talking to a woman sends her into hysterical shrieks? Find out on tonight's True Detective thread.

Meh, needs work.

vygramul: silvervial: I wonder if Cohle not going with the (pretty altar boy stereotype but a bit older) "records clerk" to look at what files Tuttle had, saying that he'd check them out another time, was just acknowledging that there would not be anything useful or evidentiary in the records anyway. Because he had to know he wasn't going to get another chance, right?

I like how Cohle paid for his dalliance with Maggie by letting himself get beat on a bit by Marty. Odd that he gave in to Maggie in the first place, odd that he didn't know he was simply a revenge fark and let himself be used that way. Guess he really needed it, poor guy.

Have to watch the episode again, of course, on the West Coast feed in HD.

He HAD been drinking.

Might have been why he was a two pump chump. Poor guy could've used a little pleasure.

Thought it was a bit of a filler episode but HBO series usually have one mild episode before they blow you away with the finale.

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

Could be. Then again, the kid who mows my lawn doesn't know what I do in my house.
