True Detective Season 2 Episode 6 Recap


Episode 5 left us chasing blue diamonds, a crazy shack, and confrontation between Colin Farrell's Ray Velcoro and Vince Vaughn's Frank Semyon.
After watching this episode, and the reality that only two episodes are left, we had too much introduction and filler. The setup stories could have been truncated. The episodes are getting better, but it feels like two episodes isn't enough time.

Check out my previous recaps or keep reading to dive into this episode. Spoilers beware.

True Detective Season 2 Episode 5 Recap

In the two months since the firefight that wrecked the city, the true detectives have not fared well
Colin Farrell's Ray Velcoro is now security for Vince Vaughn's Frank Semyon, Rachel McAdams's Ani Bezzerides works evidence, and Taylor Kitsch's Paul Woodrugh is an insurance fraud detective.
While their situations have worsened, Farrell shaved his mustache which is an improvement. It turns out the three cops have kept in touch and now want to solve the case they left behind. Check out my recaps of each episode.

True Detective Season 2 Episode 4 Recap

This episode I was expecting to see Vince Vaughn's character go even further into the violence that got him to the top, another masked individual further the conspiracy, and character development for Rachel McAdams character Ani Bezzerides. Did my predictions occur?

True Detective Season 2 Episode 3 Recap

So the big question for episode three is how would they handle Colin Farrell getting shot? We knew he would live, but would it be credible?

Check out my previous recaps or keep reading to dive into this episode. Spoilers beware.

This was a good episode. I bought the explanation for Farrell living. It was still a cliffhanger for the sake of it, but the explanation was not the disaster I was expecting. The episode moved the plot forward while balancing all the characters and providing additional insight. It's just going to get better from here.
