    Alexandra Daddario topless. Stunning. If that makes me a 13 year old boy so be it.

    Cohle really knows how to stir up a hornet's nest. That was a great scene with the attempted drug heist (stash boobie-trapped with a :eek: grenade!) and then the getaway.

    Those meth-head bikers must have been historically high if they thought wearing cop uniforms would make them look like anything but meth-head bikers wearing cop uniforms... :D

    I was mostly lost in this episode. I think is was partly due to Cohle's monotone speaking, always just above a whisper. I had a hard time understanding him or the intent of this week's plot.

    I was totally IN on this program, but now I don;t feel compelled to go back a re-watch this episode. Maybe was a time of day/mood thing for me...

    Pure entertainment! The low talking is a bit of a pita, but I'll get over that if they can continue to deliver this level of quality programming.

    I cracked up when they were in the bar talking about WH's divorce et. al. and MM says "you can't spot crazy ***** when you see it!" lol.....

    Hard to believe they have to wrap this up in only 4 more shows. Can't wait!

    I read on another forum that the last scene of the latest episode was one continual shot, no editing.

    SteadyCam following Cohle and the red headed biker from the stash house, through the projects, even through other houses then over the fence.

    They did shoot it multiple times with places they could do an edit if needed, but ended up using one of the continual shots.

    I rewatched that scene to see if I could spot the possible edit points, realizing what an excellent piece of cinematography it was.

    which is monumentally stupid since you also blow up your cash...you put a trap on the FAKE hiding place!

    I did not like this episode (and I love this show). I can't believe anyone can be on the ball after ingesting so much (and so many different) powerful drugs. It was all a bit too much.

    I did like how Cohle pointed out that he was banging a younger version of his wife. I also think he is right on the money that his wife will take him back in a couple of months.

    There was a safe there too, but it did not look like he opened it. I suppose a safe might be grenade-proof.

    about ep5 last night - was anyone else wondering where the "tall man with a scarred face" was after they finished raiding the suspects and rescuing the young girl? why didn't they notice or even question the missing suspect that was witnessed and described by dora's revival tent church friends?

    sure, they are still leading us to cohle's ongoing search for "the yellow king", but to start celebrating and close the case after the raid without a mention? this has been the first major plot fail for me - did i miss something?

    Ledoux fit the description close-enough for government work. He was certainly tall, and his face did have some marks.

    I just can't get enough of this show. It's the best thing on TV imo.

    Loved the latest ep. I have no idea where this is going and that's what I like most about it. I hate a show where they're trying to keep the conclusion under wraps but it's obvious none the less where it's heading - that or they pull an Agatha Christie dump new clues and characters in the final scene then wrap it up. Hopefully that doesn't happen here.

    SO may general take.

    Matthew & Woody are current day being interviewed about their history together and about the wood stick figure killer. Aka YELLOW KING.

    New cops suspect something is up with Matthew since he has been seen at current day crime scenes, and pushed case in direction of suspects he may have had ties with?

    The history being told is based on some lies to cover up some of the BS that went down back in the day.

    Ledoux was thought to be the killer but years later it seems he was not the killer and that there may be some major conspiracy going on here (task force, prisoner killing himself, etc..)

    After prisoners death Matthew is still searching for killer.
    Got that all right so far for the most part?


    Going forward Matthew continues to look for the Yellow King even though the cops think he may be the killer or involved somehow?


    I still don't know how they ended up pinning Ledoux for the crimes. Missed how he was all connected...

    yes, i figure that's one of his reasons for the bar job with the apartment out back - it allows him to continue the search (and drinking).

    i also suspect his investigation and related evidence is laid out in the storage building he refused to let them search - it would only give them more of a case that he's the killer, when in fact he's only guilty of still searching.

    They seem to be trying very hard to steer us to think they are after MM for something.

    While he does say some weird sh*t, I think the real loose cannon here is WH.

    There is no doubt. WH is the one who killed the guy in cold blood and is out to lunch with his family. :)

    Ledoux was the boyfriend of the girl who got killed years ago (they talked to her grandfather in his fishing boat). He was also the cellmate of the guy who was married to Dora (the current victim). He had 2 children bound and captive in his place where he made meth. One of the children was dead. it wasn't difficult to say "got our man" and close the case at that point.

    I could be wrong about many things here...that's just the way I recall things...
