Unable to make a deal with the Iron Crusaders, Cohle and Hart follows one of them to their meth cookhouse. Rather than call it in and request backup, they decide to raid the operation on their own. They face little resistance but after Hart finds two children living in abhorrent conditions, they kill the only two men they find there, one of whom is their main suspect Reggie Ledoux. Before the review board, they claim to have come under heavy fire and ended up fighting for their lives. In the process Reggie Ledoux and the other man were killed. They are commended for their bravery. Things subsequently got better for both of them, at least for a few years. Hart was promoted to Detective Sergeant and reconciled with his wife Maggie. Cohle received a commendation for bravery and got a girlfriend, Laurie. In 2002 however, Cohle gets information that the killer may not have been Ledoux. In the present day, Detectives Gilbough and Papania are told the same story given to the board 17 years ...Written by

Detective Marty Hart:
You know the good years when you're in them, or you just wait for them until you get ass cancer and realize that the good years came and went? Because there's a feeling you might notice it sometimes... this feeling like life has slipped through your fingers... like the future is behind you, like it's always been behind you.

I love this show. I totally agree with some of the reviewers that say this is a good as The Wire.
Great script, great directing and great acting are all it takes to make a great, solid show. And this show is it.
I'm glad HBO puts out great quality shows like this one. You couldn't ask for more.
Thanks for giving me something to look forward to on Sunday nights. I normally don't watch television because reality shows don't do it for me, but this show has all three elements I look for - great acting, great script and great directing makes for a great quality show. THANKS!
