If the first episode of True Detective season 2 was setting the scene, its sophomore episode is definitely putting thing into motion. Night Finds You puts our detectives to work as they quickly discover that the case of Caspere's death isn't business as usual. The episode feels significant;y more comfortable than the opener and even ends with a bang unlike anything we saw in season 1.
Frank takes things front and center when we learn that he had trusted his entire fortune on Caspere who never deposited his money with the Catalyst holdings company. After recieving some key information from Ray, Frank goes out and does an investigation of his own by utilizing all of underworld connections to find a lead. We learn a great deal about the city of Vinci's corruption through the investigation as his criminal ties lead him through the mayor and other public officials.
Ray and Ani begin to investigate the case together in an uneasy partnership that slowly began to warm on us by the end of the episode. They trace his money through a shady California therapist who seems to be up to no good. Eventually they learn that Caspere was drawn to young prostitutes that lead to underworld connections. Paul continues to be the wildcard this season with very little about his history revealed. We did get the extra creepy scene with his mother that suggested a history of sexual abuse and an uneasy adult relationship.
The cards all come together when Frank laid his cards on the table for a reluctant Ray when he disocvered that Caspere had a second home in the Hollywood area. This all lead to the shocking death of Ray who was taken down by a shotgun toting Birdman. It's sad to see Colin Farrell's stellar performance get the boot, but we can't help but speculate what this will mean for the case.We dig a little further into each of these characters, the city of Vinci, and sketchy crime connection Caspere had to make our predictions on season 2's core case.
