True Detective: Night Country (S4E05) — “Part 5” — 2/9/24



After Navarro rescues Leah from a volatile Silver Sky protest, Danvers gets a warning against pursuing the Tsalal case any further.
This will be up a few days early on Max tonight and will air in the regular time on Sunday.

Woah. I knew Hank was dirty, but that did not go down like I thought. Just before it happened, I thought suicide. So what did they discover in that lab that for them all killed and who else is helping cover it up?

Can't wait for the finale when they get into the ice cave and find Rust smoking a cigarette and drinking a Lone Star.

Woah indeed. This week's episode was up there with that episode of "Mare of Easttown". Great stuff. I can't believe next week is the finale.

As of now, just pollution numbers.

Are we to brush off the “magic” elements as hallucinations from the culture and living conditions? It’ll probably keep it a little ambiguous as with season 1.

Is the original murder scene an abstract then? I don’t understand the logistics of freezing to death in those positions.

I think the "magic" elements are real to the people experiencing them, but more of a cultural thing. I'm thinking maybe some chemical run-off is causing these psychotic breaks and caused the original murder and maybe they discovered it and were exposed to it at the labs. I know a lot are complaining about "nothing" happening most of the time, but I find the locale and it's affect on people interesting.

Yeah, when you freeze to death you just sort of fall asleep and don't wake up.

Look at the unrecovered bodies on Mount Everest. They've been up there for years and decades and just look like people sleeping. ("Green Boots" and "Sleeping Beauty")

Another ep where you have to sit through filler to get to the last 5-10 minutes that are actually interesting.

I pretty much enjoyed the whole episode. The protest was intense, the jail scene with Prior was sweet. Who knew Hank could sing his ass off? Then the end was great. I really liked this one after a couple of kinda-duds.

Great ending and some great signing from John Hawkes (assuming that was him?). The rest, not so much. Looking forward to the finale.

He wrote and sang the song.

The mix of tradition, and people being poisoned by the mine operation is interesting. It follows the first seasons allusions to the supernatural and its grounding in reality.

I guess they have about an hour to explain it on Sunday. Looking forward to it.

That was a bit of a shock ending with Hank! Based on the sneak peek for the finale, it looks like a pretty good one!

Yeah, not to mention that she looks she's eighty years old.

Maybe she takes out her dentures...

Well the town is experiencing a pollution induced psychosis. It would be fun if the final episode retcons most of what we know, and the whole town is insane.

She is still pretty hot. You guys need to quit taking porn so seriously.

Fucking hell. A bit harsh.

Foster on Kimmel last week. I think she still looks pretty good.

She may not be Hollywood hot, but I promise you, she's small-town Northern Alaska hot.

Yes, yes I have. What's your point? A lot of the Town's indigenous women are Beautiful. But to be clear, my comment about the character had nothing to do with her looks or age....
