Welcome to True Detective's newest podcast The Cast Beyond Carcossa! In our grand debut, we crack open the characters and events of the season 2 premiere "The Western Book of the Dead".

The newest season of True Detective has been one of 2015's most hotly anticipated events after season 1 became a suprise smash hit and we're here to decide whether or not Nic Pizzolatto's sophomore year meets the unreal expectations. The debut episode introduced us a new cast of characters made up of Colin Farrell as Ray, Rachel McAdams as Ani, Vince Vaughn as Frank, and Taylor Kitsch as Paul. Out new all star ensemble is brought together to the fictional California town of Vinci as they investigate the supposed murder of Vinci's City Manager, Ben Casper.

"The Western Book of the Dead" had quite the job to complete. It had establish an entirely new and larger cast in a completely new location while also proving that this is the same sort dark hyperserious drama we fell in love with in the first season. After character introductions, Dalton and I do a scene by scene breakdown of each scene to look for clues to the larger story at hand before analyzing this season's new brand of philosophical mumbo jumbo.
