Storyline

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 garykmcd

World keeps spinning
20 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Seeing Things", the second episode of True Detective maintains the momentum and gravitas established in the premiere. Detective Hart learns the secret about his partner that his wife learned last episode. And we learn a somewhat morally ambiguous secret about Hart himself. It is interesting that the show actually spent some time on the other person involved and their motivations and desires. An actor from Breaking Bad has a cameo which was a pleasant surprise.

Once again I have to praise the photography. The early morning scenes of the decayed marsh and obfuscated flashback sequences. The show is pleasant to look at it in a Southern Gothic sort of way. The frame story format is really starting to come alive and augment the story itself (the two interviewers are becoming characters unto themselves as opposed to just plot devices). I am also glad that Kevin Dunn got more screen time this episode and exercise his authority over Kohle.

I am definitely looking forward to how the rest of this season plays out.

"You know, throughout history I bet every old man probably said the same thing and the old men die and the world keeps spinning"-Detective Hart, 1995
