Martin tells Detectives Gilbough and Papania that back in 2002, Cohle started investigating something he wasn't aware of. Their last case as partners was that of Charmaine Boudreau who killed her child. Cohle gets a confession out of her but Martin thinks it contributed to his deteriorating condition. Cohle was in fact pursuing a lead about the Tuttle schools, an initiative to provide Christian education as an alternative to public schools. He learns that back in 1988, there had been accusations of child molestation at the school. Kelly, the girl he and Martin rescued from Reggie Ledoux in 1995, tells him of another man with scars who made her watch what they did to the boy who was held prisoner with her. Cohle is convinced that killings are going unreported or unconnected and that they simply didn't get everyone involved in the Dora Lang killing in 1995. When he starts talking conspiracy and the possible involvement of Billy Lee Tuttle his commander, Maj. Leroy Salter, shuts him down... Written by
Did You Know?
Rust goes to Terry Guidry's House on the Bayou to ask him about his little boy Sonny who disappeared years before. The house the father still lives in is painted in Green/Blue, the same color the Yellow King has on his ears and that eventually brings the detective to him. He obviously saw the kid the first time while he was painting that house too. See more
When Cohle is interviewing the woman suspected of killing her babies he is smoking Camel "Blue" cigarettes. They were called Camel "Lights" until 2009/2010. The interview was set in 2002. See more
Rust knew exactly who he was, and there was no talking him out of it. Marty's single big problem was that he never really knew himself, so he never really knew what to want.
