Let's Over-Analyze the 'True Detective' Season Finale Preview!
"True Detective" is amazing! And it's almost over! And it's impossible to talk about without using exclamation points!
Seriously, though, this season of "True Detective" has been mesmerizing, masterful television on every level. And with the finale airing Sunday, we're now less than a week away from finding out who the killer/Yellow King/monster at the end of this dream is.
So how are we spending these maddening hours waiting for Sunday night to get here already? By going through all 35 seconds of the season finale preview with a fine-toothed comb and digging around for clues, Rust Cohle-style. Time is a flat circle, guys… especially when you're watching this preview on a loop.
0:02: The Creole Nature Trail, aka the stretch of Louisiana highway where Reggie Ledoux's meth lab/child prison was located. Could Rust and Marty be headed back to the scene of the crime (Reggie's, as well as Marty's)?
A distinguished, theater-y voice narrates: "It's been weeks since I left my mark. Would that they had eyes to see…" Hmmm, doesn't sound like a Louisiana native.
0:06: Oof, a torture scene. An unidentified assailant with serious back scars towers over an unidentified victim tied down to a bare bed frame in some godforsaken cabin in the woods. The victim looks lean and gaunt. 2012 Rust, maybe?
