This season has many of the elements that made the first installment so enjoyable: a mysterious cold case in a brooding, atmospheric setting; a community harboring lots of secrets; hints of occult symbols; conflict and violence simmering just below the surface; and a detective tormented by regret and personal demons.

Hays is a little bit gone a lot of the time, his emotions as bottled up as most of his thoughts. His eyes come alive when his mind is working through something, and they go dead when he’s angry.

True Detective season 3 is a vast improvement over season 2, but it never quite matches the strength and memorability of season 1.
