As for the setting of Season 2, it takes place in California not Los Angeles but some of the much lesser-known venues of California and were going to try to capture a certain psychosphere ambiance of the place, much like we did in Season 1, said Pizzolatto.

He previously said the new season of True Detective would be about hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.

Just finished up season 1. Wow. One of the best tv shows I've seen yet. The character development and acting was off the charts.

I was reading back in the thread, and man I wish there was more into Maggie/the daughter. I really think Joyner was on to something. The spiral drawing in the daughter's room, the action figure rape configuration, the drawings, and omg Maggie's painting being the exact same as the painting on the wall in one of those cult locales. I think it's cool though that they left this open ended in a way...as we get to be the true detectives.

I think it's very plausible that Maggie/her family had some involvement in the cult...but ah we shall never know.

Great first season, can't wait for the next story in season 2.

D-Rose after a long time of thinking I've come to the conclusion that Marty was the ''yellow king'' and the one involved into the whole thing, not his wife Maggie.

The show firstly wanted to point at Rust which was too obvious and ridiculous, then at Maggie with those hidden clues. But after watching the show with my friends the second time and all the heavy analyzing we came to the conclusion that Marty was somehow involved into the whole thing.

I've watched it through multiple times and people keep reaching at this idea. True Detective wasn't a show with a Scooby doo type ending where it was the Police Officer all along. The Mystery was finding out how high this cult went up the ladder and exposing how savage man really is. People who keep talking about these ideas I feel missed the point of the show.

Well I expressed myself badly, I wanted to say that Marty was somehow involved into the whole thing, not that he was ''The guy'' or ''Yellow king''.

Here I will try to point out some clues which lead me to believe this way:




I don't believe that this picture on the wall was put there coincidentally, it's the same as the painting on the wall in the hospital in which that mentally ill girl was staying. As we can see it's on the Marty's side of the bed.


Look this clip at 2:10 mark, when Marty says to Reggie to put his hands on his head, Reggie starts smiling and refuses to move his hands up and only when he sees Cohle he becomes serious and raises his hands. Why wouldn't he do that immediately after he is told by a police officer with a gun pointed at him behind his back? Did he think he had any chance against Marty being half naked and without any weapon in his hands? It almost looks like they know eachother and Reggie sees the whole thing as a joke and then when he sees Rust he realizes he has to play Marty's game.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vla-8D_U_Po

At the end when Marty kills Reggie it might be just an emotional overreaction but it also may be pretty obvious Marty's way of shutting Reggie's mouth forever.


Then look at this scene when Marty and Rust meet Tuttle for the first time. Before shaking hands, both Marty and Tuttle rotate their big ass rings. Then during the whole scene Tuttle is mostly looking at Marty and Marty seems pretty nervous and then at the 0:48 mark is that suspicious ''Thank you for doing your part line''. It's almost like they know eachother aswell.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVvXgU4vb2w


What's interesting is also how Marty was almost just like a clown sidekick in the beggining when Cohle was doing everything, from dangerous actions to all the thinking. Even rust said to him that ''without me, there is no you''. But then when Rust continued to investigate and he didn't fall for Reggie's death, Marty joined him and he suddenly becomes the leading investigator who resolves all the clues. Him remembering that house being painted green was pretty ridiculous, even posters on here were saying that. Maybe Errol started to act too much on his own and became too sloppy and Rust was too deep with his investigation so maybe it was time to put down Errol similarly like Reggie.


Then there's that guy who dies in a prison in a very strange way. I think Marty was involved and I believe that the scene which tried to point at that in a hidden manner was when he beat those 2 kids in a prison pretty badly and it seems like prison is his ''own yard'' where he can do whatever he pleases.


Then there's this scene when he sees his daughters putting dolls in a rape position and he's quiet about it, on the other hand Maggie mentions to him those naked people drawings. Again, I don't believe this scene was put there just for the sake of it, if no one from that family was involved when those cult rapes occured.


Then at the end when Marty says to Rust that ''we got our guy, others don't matter'' when Rust says there are many more people involved. Yea Marty, you got your guy Errol who probably became to sloppy and crazy and started to gather to much attention.


In the last episode there is also this creepy music when they show Marty with his family and it's almost like they try to point at something with that music. Many thought it's because of Maggie, but I think it's actually because Marty survived.


Then there are obvious clues like Marty having extremely shining yellow hair and others which I don't even remember right now. This post is long enough as it is anyway
