By far the best episode of the series so far, reaching or possibly surpassing quality of McConaughey and Harrelson's series - superb.
It's still confusing to keep up with, but as the series expands itself, it increasingly contains scenes that are intoxicatingly gripping and thrilling to watch.
If you are confused - do not worry - most people are.
As the anti-heroes edge closer to the psychotic killer they are hunting down, their psychological demons are further divulged - almost magnetically dragging them backwards.
Now a body has been discovered, the darkly-flawed characters must work with one another in order to solve the Cali-based grizzly murder inquiry, whilst realising that everyone has issues.
'True Detective', the mesmeric psychological mystery drama, returns for a second series, and the opening episode is all about acquainting yourselves with the freshly-exhilarating, darkly-flawed characters.
