Tremendous episode, the best thus far. There were some surreal, mindblowing moments, i.e. the opening 10ish minutes and that last scene. Very unsettling shit. True Detective has that X factor, incredible show.

Hilarious. Goddamn this series is a masterpiece thus far, I am beyond hooked at this point and I'm dying for the next episode. I have to see it. RIGHT NOW. Haha.
The little back-and-forth between the two detectives over "doubt" made me smile and laugh for a brief moment. This show has some wickedly smart dialogue. The ripostes between these two guys are always so elegantly adorned, especially so when Cohle is on the "giving end."
Cohle's speech about the "ontological fantasy" the preacher pushes--like a shrink--is brilliant.
Look at this acting, behold this acting:
McConaughey's final monologue--Cohle's final speech--which has this pertinacious urgency that is wholly captivating, and wraps everything from that earlier, above outburst, about "the locked room"? It's the first moment of any film or television series in ages that truly gave me a sensory chill down my back. I arched my entire torso from it.
