While that one reveal at the beginning of this week’s True Detective seemed all the more obvious after a week of internet scrutiny (and a lazy TV Guide summary), I wondered if it was the most straightforward aspect of the episode. Short answer: Yes, but one came pretty close to topping it. Let’s take a look at the most notable moments, going from least straightforward to “Velcoro’s alive.”
Pretty random in terms of “Well, I wasn’t expecting to see that today,” not so much in that particular scene.
The actual firebombing was kinda random. The resulting scene of Velcoro falling behind to save Bezzerides, not so much.
