    Another great episode! They’re continuing to improve, episode over episode.

    Can we talk about Scoot McNairy at least a little bit?  He’s had an unexpectedly large role and is doing superb work.

    I’ve been talking about Scoot McNairy many times! He’s on his way to an Emmy nomination.

    I’m not feeling Scoot McNairy (nor Stephen Dorff). Though, the acting varies so much depending on each performer. Mamie Gummer, who has never ever done anything outstanding, is (was? Is she going to be in the last two episodes?) pretty good. Carmen Ejogo could’ve done so much more with Amelia, who I think it’s the best written character on the show (still two episodes to prove otherwise). On the other hand, Mahershala Ali is terrific. Best performance of his career? Six episodes so far yet I’d say it is. He’s definitely operating in another level.

    It’s getting better and better as the series concludes. I think that the turn to investigating Tom Purcell is a masterstroke. I told you bitches how great Scoot McNairy was in EPISODE ONE! But if it took you guy six weeks to catch up, so be it. It’s a clear red herring as the final scene showed, so I can’t wait to see what happens next. Needless to say, Mahershala is operating on another level here and shows that he’s far more than just a character actor. He’s a true leading man. Too bad two supporting Oscars means he’s never winning in lead, but at least a lead Emmy will have to suffice.

    Finally watched the six episodes and this season is doing really great. Mahershala is giving an amazing performance, much better than he gave in Moonlight.

    Episode Title: “The Final Country”

    Synopsis: Following up on new leads, Wayne and Roland track down a man who left the police force in the midst of the Purcell investigation. Meanwhile, Amelia visits Lucy Purcell’s best friend in hopes of gaining insights into the whereabouts of the mysterious one-eyed man.

    What a GREAT episode tonight, and what a season, it keeps getting better!   True Detective is back to being a major force.

    Poor Tom! I had no idea that was the way they were gonna take the storyline. This penultimate sets up the series finale beautifully. I didn’t want it to end TBH. I’m keeping Scoot McNairy in my supporting actor Emmy predictions to the end, bitches! Also, it’s time to place Stephen Dorff right alongside Mahershala Ali in Lead Actor. Hopefully they won’t cannibalize each other’s votes.

    After that last episode it belongs in drama categories. No doubt about that. Also Dorff is co-lead and should be campaigned as such. Say no category fraud.

    With the way the Oscar telecast and winners are shaping up to be, I might skip the Oscars and watch this live instead. Should be a great finale!

    I’m enjoying this season overall, particularly the last two episodes, but it’s nowhere near the highs of the first one. This one just has a mystery storyline and that’s it—nothing more. The performances are fine; Ali obviously is the standout only because we get to see his character’s in three different time periods, Scoot McNairy also has some scenes which could yield an Emmy nomination, though other actors are incredibly underused, especially Carmen Ejogo. I mean this is certainly not the type of a role I would have expected to see from Sarah Gadon after Alias Grace. In terms of crime series this season: Escape at Dannemora > Sharp Objects > True Detective.

    I am not saying this season is bad, in fact a remarkable improvement from the second one, but it’s not the best one.
