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

When the detectives review Ledoux's paperwork in their car, his SSN has an extra digit. See more »

Quotes

Detective Rust Cohle: This cartel I worked on the border, they, uh, they had this routine... They'd duct-tape you to a chair that was bolted to the floor, use a couple rolls, make sure you couldn't budge a fuckin' inch. And they'd cut around your face, grip your scalp, yank down, rip your face off... And they'd put a mirror in front of you so you could get a good look at yourself. And they'd cut your dick and your balls off... shove 'em down your throat until you bled and choked out, while you were watching.

what the person before me just said
11 February 2014 | by spearman-lewieSee all my reviews

Amen!!! This episode should get an emmy at least for that final six minutes. The show feels like I am reading a book of very high caliber, not unlike something from Wally Lamb or the Corrections, where the human pathos gets conveyed so well. I haven't seen a show so deserving of respect for each episode since The Wire. My opinion on Matthew McConahey's acting has risen dramatically since watching this series. The production design absolutely captures the fashion, hair styles, transportation, technology and architecture of the mid nineties. No one on this show is phoning it in. Even the cell phone was an older analog phone from that era. Even the small detail of Rust having to explain to Marty how to use it was the attention to detail that you should expect.
