Thanks to the power of the Super Bowl, we’ve had to wait two weeks for the return of HBO’s “True Detective”. At the end of the third episode Detectives Hart and Cohle appeared to be closing in on a main suspect in the form of Reggie Ledoux. Ledoux is a drug dealer, sex offender and former cellmate of victim Dora Lange’s ex-husband. He’s the perfect profile for the Detectives, but could this be a red herring? We know from the present day interviews that the murders have continued even with a suspect behind bars. Cohle and Hart closed the case, but did they get the right man?
While no one is going to defend Reggie Ledoux, he seems a perfect fall guy for the crimes. Tonight the noose grows tighter around Ledoux. The promo for tonight’s episode, titled “Who Goes There”, features a helicopter spotlight hunting the ground below. We heard warnings about Cohle’s myopic tendencies when it comes to solving cases, and his singluar focus is now on Ledoux. We don’t know yet if that’s a good thing.
Will there be any new beer can Origami tonight? Fingers crossed for Cohle’s aluminum can swan.
