    Just starting to get caught up on this. I finished episode 3 last night. I was supremely impressed with season 1, thought season 2 stunk out loud, and have been very impressed with season 3 thus far. I'm usually pretty good at formulating theories about these shows, but this one has me all twisted up so far. My leading theory (keeping in mind that I'm only on episode 3) is that Roland (Dorff) either outright did it or is very close to it. Reasons:

    • He's not shown as an old man in 2015.
    • His comment about this all "being right in front of them" in the car with Hays.
    • Hays' older self being taunted about his ghost of a wife about "what he left in the woods"... possibly a falling out between the two of them that Hays' dementia is burying?
    • Roland's being weirded out by the father praying with him.
    Probably way off, but that's what I'm getting so far.

    Skip season two if you do. Season 1 was some of the best TV I've ever seen. Season 3 is phenomenal so far.

    I had watched that before ... not season 3 ... but I watched it again + season 3.
    Season 3 is pretty good ... I love deep and dark dramas ... my favorite TV.

    i thought season 2 was ok. its not season one but not something you need to skip imho. I've been watching season three and i thought its been a little slow so far.

    [spoilers ahead]

    Can't wait for the final episode. I've had a hard time figuring out what the hell is happening, but there was a thread on Reddit today that finally made some sense of it. Basically, the DA is the father of Julie, and Hoyt is the father of Lucy. The DA took Julie and tried to close the case as fast as possible. Why is anyone's guess. Maybe the DA was concerned about weird **** that Hoyt may or may not have been into. Mr June is probably a decent guy who wants the best for Julie and Will. Will died accidentally while running through the woods, looking for his sister. He slips, breaks his neck, and when June goes looking for both of them, he sees Will and puts him up in the cave as a sort of burial.

    I could still be totally wrong, and deep down, I hope I am because massive conspiracies are more fun.

    They might. Crazy how the two stories intersected.

    Very bittersweet ending. He found her but his mind betrayed him one last time this season. Very good season all in all, though. A slow burn but it certainly delivered.

    I was initially not a fan of the ending, but I'm coming around to it. It reminds me of Game of Thrones with how it breaks the normal rules of storytelling to give you something more real and unpredictable.

    I would say True Detective is tied for my top show of all time. Tied with Mr Robot, although without a great final season, I'll have to drop it down a little.

    Really indeed skip season 2. And just go to Season 1 & 3. Glad it made a comeback!
