Storyline

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 garykmcd

Unbelievably dark and depressing episode

This episode was quiet, in a way, and also stepped a bit back regarding their supernatural and deeply philosophical nature. Instead, Pizzolatto managed to bring the stories of 1995 and 2002 to an end and opened the door for two (hopefully) amazing last episodes.

This episode deals with Hart, Cohle and Maggie and their connection between each other, but also their own motivations. Without spoiling anything, I can say that this episode is full of hate and that's what makes the episode so depressing and dark. After finishing the episode I had to sit back a second and take a deep breath. It once again focused heavily on the plot, and I guess there is no need to mention that the writing and visual was once again close to perfect.

9/10 I am excited to see how the story around Hart and Cohle will end, especially after this amazing last scene
