‘True Detective’ season 2, episode 4 preview: Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn’s story in ‘Down Will Come’

HBO logoWhat is coming up on “True Detective” next week? This is something that HBO did not want you to know a lot about in advance. HBO did not release many details at all about this episode in advance, save for its title: “Down Will Come.” This infers to us some sort of demise or revelation: No wall can stay up forever. The evidence of this can also be found just in what these characters do for a living. It is their occupation and their expectation to be truth-seekers.

For the show itself, this is going to be an opportunity for a comeback after tonight’s episode failed to present every aspect of the narrative successfully. The biggest problem is trying to make us buy that Ray Velcoro would survive getting shot in the way in which he was.

The promo that aired after tonight’s episode at least gave us a sense somewhat of where this story is going. Ray is going to visit his son (or at least who he considers his son) in order to have something closer to a last goodbye. Meanwhile, Ray has to confront what he did, and how he may have to re-enter the criminal game in order to make progress on the case.

The stories for Paul and Ani coming up are somewhat more mysterious, though Taylor Kitsch’s character in particular seems to be struggling with where he is, trapped on the inside and not knowing where to turn next.
