How Do You Think 'True Detective' Will End? Logline For Season Finale Episode 'Form And Void' Revealed

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist February 19, 2014 at 4:34PM

While we've lived through "The Sopranos" and "Breaking Bad" becoming pop culture phenomena as the world wondered about the fates of Tony Soprano and Walter White in the lead up the finales of both shows, when was the last time such buzz has centered around how the first season of series will end? Indeed, "True Detective" has been surprising not just how for incredibly rich, accomplished and literary the show has been, but for presenting a truly haunting, gripping mystery—across three beautifully managed timelines—that is seared with tension, atmosphere and a genuine whodunit problem to solve. And with the finale fast approaching, a morsel of a clue has arrived.

While we've lived through "The Sopranos" and "Breaking Bad" becoming pop culture phenomena as the world wondered about the fates of Tony Soprano and Walter White in the lead up the finales of both shows, when was the last time such buzz has centered around how the first season of series will end? Indeed, "True Detective" has been surprising not just for how incredibly rich, accomplished and literary the show has been, but for presenting a truly haunting, gripping mystery—across three beautifully managed timelines—that is seared with tension, atmosphere and a genuine whodunit problem to solve. And with the finale fast approaching, a morsel of a clue has arrived.

HBO revealed today that the final episode, scheduled to air on March 9th, will be titled "Form And Void." And even more, they've served up an appropriately vague logline: "An overlooked detail provides Hart and Cohle with an important new lead in their 17-year-old case." What does it all mean?

We have our own thoughts, but we want you to tell us how you think it'll go down. Is Rust really the monster behind the serial killings, with Martin set to be shocked that the answer to the "detective's curse" was in front of his face the whole time? Is Rust's oft-mentioned father somehow connected? What about Shea Whigham's preacher? How does the "flat circle of time" come into play? If anything, "True Detective" has proven not to play by traditional genre rules, so we're sure whatever's coming won't be obvious. Share your theories with us below—the next three weeks are gonna be a helluva ride.
