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.

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
It is amazing how the show can top itself week after week. Just when I thought that it would be difficult to top the last episode, This episode proved me wrong. From the beginning to the end of the episode everything was meticulously done, writing, editing and acting and honestly What a performance by Matthew McConaughey and the cinematography was just the icing on the cake. I love this show.To me it has the atmosphere of David Fincher's Se7en,The storytelling as good wire and acting as amazing as Breaking Bad. On one hand, It's unfortunate that the story is headed to its final episodes, on the other hand I can hope that the show ends the way it deserves.
