Cohle and Hart continue their investigation. They track down the minister who used the church but learn they had abandoned it some four months before it succumbed to fire. The local authorities blamed the fire on teenagers but it's still an open case. Cohle combs through old files searching for any connections to their current case. He may have found a 2-year-old case that appears similar, and sets out to find the dead girl's boyfriend, Reggie Ledoux, who has a record and knew Charlie Lange in prison. Maggie Hart sets Cohle up on a date and the four of them go to a bar where Martin sees his mistress Lisa out on a date with someone. In the present day, Cohle explains his interrogation technique, which even Hart admits is different but effective. Hart's recollection of his family life is somewhat skewed. Written by

The Preacher makes the sign of the cross in the wrong direction: when he mumbles words for the dead girl, he makes the "cross sign" on his chest and he incorrectly touches his right shoulder first whereas it should be the left first. As a "man of God" he should know better. See more
People... I have seen the finale of thousands of lives, man. Young, old, each one so sure of their realness. You know that their sensory experience constituted a unique individual with purpose and meaning. So certain that they were more than biological puppet. The truth wills out, and everybody sees. Once the strings are cut, all fall down.
