    True Detective Season Two Lines, Ranked
    15. “Thing is, you ain’t that thing no more. What you used to was.”
    The conventional wisdom is this whole enterprise was toast without Matthew McConaughey to sell it and Cary Fukunaga to frame it and nobody around to tell Nic Pizzolatto No or Please don’t do that or I’m telling you for the last time or You can’t have it back or Sorry dogg I threw your typewriter into the ocean.

    I lolled at this

    But since having every single one of our main characters die would be just a little too depressing, Ani makes it out of the country, with only a new haircut and her daring sense of do-good to sustain her. Only when we see what kind of life she’s carved out for herself (much of which was spent trying to get more evidence on this case) we also discover that she had Ray’s baby (surprise!) and that she’s raising him on the run with Jordan and that one guy who was still loyal to Frank. So I guess that’s kind of a happy ending for them? Jordan got a baby after all? Ani found the truth sort of? That one henchman got to visit Venezuela?

    Excited. Like that dude from the Kevin Spacey's last hurrah. Now they've done it well once and done it poorly once so they should know where they stand. Still never seen and episode. That' might change tonight.
