'True Detective': What to Expect from 'Who Goes There'


'True Detective': What to Expect from 'Who Goes There'


Last week, we let you know what to expect from the third episode of HBO's 'True Detective,' entitled "The Locked Room." Today, we've got the scoop on what's set to take place during this Sunday's fourth outing, "Who Goes There." What's in store for Detectives Martin Hart and Rust Cohle this weekend? Read on to find out.

Warning: I did my best to avoid any major plot spoilers below, but if you'd prefer to go in completely blind (or just haven't gotten around to watching your DVR recording of episode three yet), it would be wise to turn back now.

'True Detective': What to Expect from 'Who Goes There'

- This week's suspect du jour in the murder of Dora Lange is a large, violent ex-con by the name of Reggie LeDeaux. It seems he and Dora's ex-husband Charlie did some hard time together, and Charlie (being the morally bankrupt idiot that he is) used to entertain his cell mate by showing him cheesecake photos of Dora, which may have led directly to her death.

- Hart's investigation leads him to a cohort of Reggie's, who turns out to be the former pimp of a local stripper. This of course treats the viewers to the premium cable trademark that is the "topless women dancing to rap music" scene. Ah, the classics.

- Speaking of ol' Marty, his young mistress doesn't take too kindly to last week's drunken, gun-toting incident, and demands an explanation from him. Since she does this in public, you can imagine how well it goes. Also, we finally find out what it is she actually does for a living.

- I had an odd thought during this episode. If Hart and Cohle are telling this story to these two young detectives, are we supposed to assume that they're telling them *everything* that we, the audience is shown? If that's the case, I have to wonder why they would go off on personal tangents that have absolutely nothing to do with the case. Of course, it's probably just a situation where the writing staff expects that we'll suspend our disbelief. After all, we still don't know why the Dunphys and Pritchetts are being filmed on 'Modern Family.'

- I'm going to be intentionally vague with this one, as I want you guys to experience the storyline as it happens. Let's just say that something pretty darn major goes down in either Hart or Cohle's personal life, and it exposes a nasty side of them that most viewers probably won't like.

- Elsewhere, a tip leads Hart and Cohle to infiltrate a dangerous biker gang. Rust has a bit of a history with them, due to his time as an undercover narcotics officer. Their initials: SAMCRO. Okay, not really, but wouldn't that be a cool turn of events? If nothing else, the gang here is said to enjoy performing unnecessary surgery on people who cross them.

'True Detective's fourth episode airs this Sunday night at 9/8c on HBO.

Not to bandwagon it, but, indeed, this format sucks. Just do a normal review, come on. It just isn't palatable. *** Not to mention that point form comes across as sheer laziness. *** Above all other things, overlooking what made this episode so... masterful, is... perplexing. *** Sorry for being so harsh (truly), but I, for one, have grown to expect high-quality writing from this site (scope, depth, breadth, etc.), so hopefully, this article constitutes an exception (both for the individual writer, as well as on the site, overall), _but_, considering the limitations of the format, sadly, that seems unlikely.

I do not bother reading these spoilers, they are a waste of time.

It is not about being forced to read something. How are people meant to discuss something one person has seen? These 'What to expexct' articles serve no purpose. Are we discussing the TV show? No. We are discussing an article which contains only spoilers that nobody can comment on. Surely a writer is worth more than just putting out spoilers. When this site dries up and dies the owners will know why. It seems to exist to inflate the heads of the writers and not to make TV programs more enjoyable for all.

Have to agree, it does seem rather strange with this kind of "What to expect", instead of just a review of an already aired episode for all to discuss.


There's no real point to this :/

Last week you sucked all the fun out of the episode. So let's do it again this week. How can you form a community of people commenting on your site when you are the only idiot who has seen the show? Are you trying to kill this site? You are the fool who walks out of the cinema and tells the people waiting in line the plot and ending. Do you feel superior??
