Season 1 of HBO’s mesmerizing crime drama True Detective is nearing its finale, with last night’s episode, titled “After You’ve Gone,” being the next to last installment. In this 7th episode, we see former partners Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) and Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) in 2012 teaming up once more, but this time it’s off the grid, and they’re searching again into the Dora Lange murder and the Tuttle family.
HBO has released a 4 1/2-minute “Inside The Episode #7” video, which you can watch here below, along with a video recap of the episode and a few clips.
Writer Nic Pizzolatto explains that the videotape we see Marty and Rust watching is of Marie Fontenot, the little girl who went missing in 1990 and that what’s happening in the footage is “a child sacrifice conducted in some kind of pagan, animalistic ritual and director.” Director Cary Fukunaga says he had to film that sequence by himself.
