‘True Detective’ Season 2, Episode 2 – Night Finds You | TV Review

 

The imperfect characters have been established, the killing has been unveiled and the mystery has been ascertained. The second episode of True Detective season 2 drives straight towards the investigation into the gruesome murder of California city manager Ben Caspere, whilst allowing the protagonists to acquaint their intertwining identities with one another.

 

With Caspere’s tortured body discovered, Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell), Ani Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams) and Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch) must work together to solve the grizzly mystery, with a flustered Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn), whose million-dollar business deal now seeming bleak, also frantically searching for answers at any cost.

 

After the opening episode being arguably an hour-long character assessment, the second revolves itself around the series’ mystery. Like the first series, the deeper the detectives delve into the darkened mystery, the more hazy and unsettling it becomes, which is a must for any True Detective fan. The second episode resumes the slow and steady pace of the first, and it mainly consists of the characters picking up leads and learning more about one another. This aforementioned pace however, is abruptly and drastically sped in the closing scene of the episode that involves detective Velcoro, which is both startling and exhilarating.

 

With this climaxing twist, audiences will be desperate to discover the outcome in next week’s episode and their patience is bound to be tested dearly. Criticism of the series so far still seems to be mixed, but as the episodes tick off, they are only going to significantly improve as this one has proven.
