The season premiere of True Detective left a lot to take in. Most of it was a setup for the season ahead, as well as the events at Caspere’s home, but Colin Farrell’s Det. Ray Velcoro provided some crazy scenes in between getting to know characters. As ridiculous as some of those scenes were, they may have been more justified than initially realized. Let’s take a look.

Action: Velcoro beat up a writer who was reporting on the seedy side of Vinci.
Counterpoint: The underbelly has to eat, too. Plus, Velcoro and Frank go way back.
