Good stuff. This was the first fresh episode for me since seeing ep 1 & 2 at the HBO screening I went to. So far they've thrown out a bunch of possible avenues it should go and hinted at several personal moments for Hays and others that have yet to be revealed.

I'm looking forward to the rest of the season and this is definitely more in line with the product that s1 provided.

Cool article from Vulture on the making of True Detective Season 3. Apparently they asked Ali to play the Roland part and they envisioned a white actor to play Hayes. But Mahershala wanted the Hayes part and eventually Pizzolatto was convinced to change the character a bit and give it to him.

I'm really digging this season. Can't wait to see what Hayes "lost" out there in the woods.

This season is mesmerizing, like season 1. Ali and Dorff are great in this.

How many episodes are there going to be?
