It was like he was doing her a favor, a way out of her personal hell, a hell where he believes she shouldn't even have existed in in the first place.
I couldn't agree more....you nailed it.

Agree, it's interesting and promoted as such. Agree MM is good doing his thing in this, and so is
Mr. Harrelson. The duel timeline? OK Been done, we get it. The Male centric Cop Thing, Check!
The Keep Away from obvious while inserting obvious? OK, we get that, but WHY is this different?
Why are so many of you in this forum and critics as well, ready to literally give MM a BJ over this role
on this specific series? It's the same MM performance we've seen before.
What Gives? Any Takers?
I'll try to field that one, Eric.
IMO and FWIW.....there are several things going in this series that makes it stand out from the normal fare.
1) Big-time Movie Stars.
2) Gritty modern noir, with excellent writing, performances, cinematography, and soundtrack.
3) It's right in the title: TRUE DETECTIVE
What do I mean?
This series is, groundbreakingly IMO, challenging the audience to actively get involved and BE the "True Detective."
All of these clues, red herrings, misdirection, half-remembered recollections, dreams, lies were put in place to bring the viewers in
to solve these crimes and mysteries.
Which is why it seems everyone here has a different theories on what the he!! is REALLY
going on; we are all trying to BE
the True Detective.
This is what makes TD magic.
