Cohle and Hart continue interviewing family and friends of the victim they found in the farmer's field. They learn that she had moved to a trailer park and found religion. They find the church she attended, now mostly burned out, but they also find something that links the church directly to their current case. Back at the office, they are faced with the prospect of being replaced by a task force. Cohle tells his partner he had a difficult time after his 2 year-old daughter was killed in a car accident. In the present day interviews, it becomes obvious to both Cohle and Hart that the detectives have found something new and are looking to blame someone for something. Written by

When the detectives stop their car outside the abandoned church, there is a shot of Rust looking at the horizon when suddenly a group of black birds take flight from the bushes. As the old Rust voices over the scene, the group of birds start making random patterns in the sky, one of which is the spiral sign as seen tattooed on the murdered victims' backs. See more
I think about my daughter now, and what she was spared. Sometimes I feel grateful. The doctor said she didn't feel a thing; went straight into a coma. Then, somewhere in that blackness, she slipped off into another deeper kind. Isn't that a beautiful way to go out, painlessly as a happy child? Trouble with dying later is you've already grown up. The damage is done, it's too late.
