Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff's ingratiating chemistry is given the spotlight during a well-rounded True Detective installment that is by turns beguiling, stomach-turning, but never dull.
Rich with information, filled with stunning performances, and paced well between revealing personal confrontations and critical developments in the case, Episode 5 delivers everything viewers could want from the series.
Even without the grief mustache, Scoot is compelling as hell!
If You Have Ghosts, True Detective season 3's fifth and best episode to date, provided us with an enormous amount of evidence (and more literary allusions) to dig through.
"If You Have Ghosts" shows some characters unable to let go of things, even if it's to their detriment. Some things are best left to the past, and in this episode, the present finds itself the most powerful by trying to forget that past.
Some things are becoming more clear, some things are a little murkier, some things were just hard to watch.
The bounty of clues and disclosures this week do much to counteract the continued friction between Hays and Amelia, which repeats itself from last week.
If there's any mystery left in True Detective that matters, it's the mystery of how it becomes us, and how to reconcile the many versions of us. In "If You Have Ghosts," True Detective loses sight of its core mystery.
Whether Matthew McConaughey or Rachel McAdams were in the lead, those stories left the power players behind their central crimes untouched, even if individual mysteries got solved.
Ali and Dorff absolutely kill it; the affection and the pain and the loneliness just roll off of them both.
If You Have Ghosts may be the most well rounded of the season's episodes. It is at turns heartbreaking and heart-stopping. It plows some very deep pain, but closes with the biggest shot of hope the series has yet offered.
