shit - hadn't thought of that.Also, now we know why the Hart's daughter had those rough looking sketches & doll tableaus... Maybe Maggies Dad + his Buddies got a hold of her... If Yes, no wonder she's on Medication...
They're definitely making it seem like Rust is teetering on the edge, talking about paying debts and whatnot. After talking with the old granny who used to work for the Tuttles, she started off on some "Death isn't the end," Carcosa-type nattering and then Cohle was like, "I hope she's wrong", as if he just wants his nihilistic vision of life to be finally fulfilled. He also told the Medea girl to kill herself in episode 6 after he coerced a 40-page confession out of her, which was pretty damning to his state of mind even before he spun out of control and went on his 10-year bender.Anyone think that one of, if not both Hart & Cohle gonna die in the finale?
Reading this Globe and Mail essay today made me think about this take above. Not about True Detective, but it might as well be.i'd say you can make the same argument for every character outside of Marty & Rust. It's their story. Everyone else is secondary.
If you had to rank what character received the most development it would clearly be Maggie, although her screen time is understandably far behind.
I really hate this sort of knee jerk politically correct dissection. It reminds me of the talk about the portrayal of races on Game of Thrones.
What a terrible thing it would be to force the show's creatives to bean count every gender and race depiction to please some quota instead of focusing on telling the story as best they can.
