Critic reviews for After You've Gone

The puzzle pieces are getting filled in, and it's not necessarily as enjoyable as wondering what is going to happen. But if True Detective didn't answer these questions, we'd be even more frustrated.

Animal masks! Rituals! Deep fried vigilantism! True Detective is not letting us down at all.

It is the kind of info dump that not only sets up the finale, but it also helps confirm the audiences' preconceptions about the protagonists of True Detective, in that it appears to substantiate the notion that Rust and Marty are who they say they are.

True Detective has become more familiar and straightforward over the last two episodes as it resolves its central mystery, but the performances and overall execution of the show remain stellar.

June 5, 2015 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

"After You've Gone" was the penultimate episode of the series, and it entailed a certain degree of exposition and set-up. We needed to know what happened with our principals in the past decade, and we needed to be prepared for next week's finale.

June 4, 2015 | Rating: 9.6/10 | Full Review…

This episode not only included numerous scenes of the two cops working together, but also exhibited narrative storytelling at its finest. My only concern is that, with an hour left, there is too much to be resolved.
