True Detective deftly squares the flat circle in "The Final County," providing crucial revelations for the season's conspiracy and its place in the series' broader mythos -- all while dangling several tantalizingly loose threads for audiences to ponder until the finale.
True Detective" now feels more pointed than ever toward filing in gaps.
"The Final Country" finds True Detective showing a lot of its cards, while still keeping some important ones hidden. There's a lot to still discover in its final hour, but this episode claims mesmerizing tension in its incredible second half.
Everything Mahershala Ali did in that scene, from how slack Wayne's face became to signify being lost in time to his later apology, years late, to West for manipulating his feelings about Tom, was perfect.
Time is melting a bit. Transitions among 1980, 1990 and 2015 are getting more abrupt and fluid.
A lot of things became clear this week, from the fracturing of the Roland-Wayne relationship to the often-referenced "thing we done" that makes Roland so skittish about Wayne talking to the news lady.
The past few episodes of "True Detective" have busied themselves with unpacking this horrific conspiracy, but this week's episode was especially effective in measuring the bruising cost of it.
"The Final Country" will go down as one of season 3's stronger episodes, ending with a mysterious conclusion, but it will be best remembered for connecting this installment with the original series.
Is the late-season introduction of all this new information fair? Maybe not, but it works anyway.
Finally, things get properly moving.
We're a week away from the end of this decades-spanning journey, and Pizzolatto is still dangling some exciting threads that I can't wait to get answers to.
