True Detective - Season Finale - "Form and Void" - 3/9/14



An overlooked detail provides Hart and Cohle with an important new lead in their 17-year-old case.

Written by Nic Pizzolatto; directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga
Season finale. Although we keep discussing details about season 2, HBO has not officially renewed for a second season.

I don't want it to end either. The one show since Breaking Bad ended that has drawn me in as much. Granted it'll be back for another season but different characters and stuff.

Was at a dinner party last night. Much speculation going on about what might happen tonight. Enthusiasm for this show among my neighbors rivals Lost and Breaking Bad. Was pleasantly surprised and persuaded a couple people to binge watch eps 1-7 today. Everything else takes a backseat to this tonight.

It took me most of the week, but I managed to get caught up in time for tonight's episode. Can't wait.

I hope the final ep does the rest of the season justice.

Great ep. Some holes/unanswered questions some will have trouble with though.

Great series from beginning to end.

Yep, that was alright. It was a hell of a ride, and it certainly didn't go to where I thought it might back around episode 4 or 5, but I feel pretty satisfied. Next season should be True Detective: Hart and Colhe, Private Dicks.

I think McConaughey might have an Emmy to go with his Oscar soon. He was great in this ep.


Overall, this was a good series. I felt the finale was a bit paint by the numbers, and I hated the cliche of chasing the bad guy into his lair without any help. What exactly was that place where he was hiding? Looked like an elaborate set piece. I am guessing that is where the cult performed its rituals back in its day.

I had to rewind as well. Rust said Marty was looking at it the wrong way because once there was just dark...and so the light is now winning.

Cohle said something like this: You're looking at the sky thing wrong. Once there was only dark. If you ask me, the lights winning.

Me as well, but in a way, the whole series was about finding the correct killer and the road to it. I also think we're meant to infer a few things, like Rust most likely convinced the double murder guy to commit suicide.

Remember, Rust & Marty aren't on the force anymore and this was all under the radar/done seperatly

The Onion had a pretty funny article about the show. Forgive me if someone already posted it in last week's thread.
