Storyline

Ray survives the shotgun attack in Ben Caspere's apartment but has to take a few days off to recover. A review of the evidence reveals that Caspere was traveling up and down the State making land deals. Ani and Paul visit Vinci Mayor Austin Chessani's and get a bit of an eyeful. They also get a lead on a car that was in the area on the night of Caspere's murder. Paul continues to search for the prostitutes Caspere may have frequented. A flashback recalls an encounter with old friend and provides clues to his own confused sexuality. After the death of one of his men, Frank reasserts his position among other mobsters and begins to rebuild the fortune that seems to have disappeared with Caspere's death. Written by garykmcd

Somebody Murdered Him
5 July 2015 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

Writing True Detective Reviews have proved to be a lot shorter of a job than any other TV shows. Honestly, it's because I have been pretty indifferent to this season. I have liked a few of the characters and most of the performances but I just haven't been overly thrilled with the story. I also haven't been keen on the characters dynamics while they're together. Colin Farrell continues to be the best part about the show, and I'm glad to see he didn't actually die, although I don't know how much that makes sense story wise.

I chose the quote from Frank "somebody murdered him" as the title because I thought it spoke a lot about Farrell's character. He didn't die in the last episode, but in some ways, he did. His entire life as he knows it is being stripped away from him piece by piece. He will likely lose his child to custody issues. And he found out that state police is after him for one reason or another. McAdams character, Bezzerides, continues to puzzle me. We have had weird clues of her past but nothing has yet to come of it. Speaking of past, it looks like Woodrugh had some homosexual relations with his friend and it continues to haunt him. I think that's what this season has been about for each character. They have had event that significantly impacted them in the past and it continues to haunt what they're doing. For the most part, the show has been okay, but nothing too special. But last season had one of the most interesting dynamics between any characters on screen with McConaughey and Harrelson. But this season has failed to really recapture an ongoing intriguing dynamic.

But this episode felt more like True Detective of last season than last week did tone wise. So I'm hoping next week takes another step forward. I think this season has held a lot back in terms of all the characters back stories, but now we are getting a little bit more clearance. We also saw Vaughn's character show true cruelty and McAdams tell off yet another man. I will say, I dig this stare that her character gives. I have bought into her character, I would just like some pay off.

+McAdams stare

+Farrell's acting

+Tone

-Dynamics aren't as interesting

-Story has yet to grip me
