Storyline

The detectives continue their search for Reggie Ledoux but an opportunity arises when Hart learns that Ledoux is cooking meth for a drug-dealing motorcycle gang known as the Iron Crusaders. Cohle knows them well having had dealings with the gang during the four years he worked as an undercover narcotics officer. He decides that the only way to move the case forward is to take two weeks of personal time - citing a dying father as the reason - and unofficially go undercover. He soon hooks up with his old contacts in the Iron Crusaders but it's clear that regaining their trust isn't going to be easy. At home meanwhile, Hart runs into major problems after his wife Maggie learns of his affair with Lisa. In the present day, the detectives interviewing Cohle and Hart can't quite understand why, having found a major lead in the case, Cohle would suddenly take two weeks leave. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The final six-minute sequence, which follows Rust Cohle through the housing project, consists of only one very long take. Hundreds of staff were required to film the scene, including hidden make-up artists who had to apply make-up in seconds while the camera was focused elsewhere. See more »

Goofs

The exotic dancer Martin Hart pursues to the rave is driving a B4-series Subaru Outback station wagon. That body style wasn't available in the United States until 1999 (model year 2000), though the crime Hart and his partner are investigating supposedly took place in 1995. See more »

Possibly some of the best TV ever produced ... ever!
10 March 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Forget for a moment the overall superb quality of the series to date.

Forget the writing, the acting, direction.

Forget it.

And here is why.

The most effective dramatic technique for viewer connection, for viewer entertainment, is also the riskiest. The most effective dramatic technique is simply to take everything that has gone before before AND BURN IT TO THE GROUND and take the viewer on an unexpected trip to the edgiest ride in the amusement park.

And that is what we have here. I have never seen it done so well. And, as I often say, I watch a lot of TV. The Neilson people once took me down with a tranquilizer dart, tagged me, and released me back into the wild.

Forget the serial killer. Forget the dogged procedural work. Forget the marital issue. In one of the most unforgettable performances I have ever seen in my life, film included, Matthew McConaughey goes back into an undercover life he once ran from and -- simply to make an arrest! -- risks it all.

I am on the edge of my chair. And you will be too.
