that would sound like a forced reading to me, a veiled possibility maybe.

Actually, what saltine pointed out - that one of the 1995 detectives could have committed the 2012 murder - was the first thing and most obvious conclusion that came to mind as the pilot episode ended. That to me is the reason why the 2012 detectives were so keen on drilling Hart to talk about Rust in detail... because I think they already have Rust as one of the prime suspects and are looking to build a case surrounding him as the killer.

Add to this Rust's philosophical eccentricities and anti-social manner... I think the show will go on to put the pieces together why the 2012 detectives are suspecting Rust and not Hart... fill in the details of how 1995 Rust turned into 2012 Rust (who looks really haggard and disheveled).

Yeah. I would assume that 'Rust as killer' is just an early red herring they throw in before coming up with something less obvious.

Question: Are you saying that the 2012 detectives think Cohle did the current murder as a copycat or the 1995 murder?
So far their investigation is centered pretty much on the 1995 murder but maybe they suspect there's a connection.

"Who Goes There" 

Great tracking shot and so well-used.  Riveting episode; can't wait to see what happens next.

to say the least, that final scene has to be eligible for 2014 Filmspots, it's a cinematic masterpiece.

I don't deny that is was very well done, but that was the most traditional cop show episode yet, with very little of the atmosphere and the philosophical ramblings that elevated the previous ones.

it may have been traditional goodguy but it was also necessary, this is a cop show and you need action sooner or later and all the ramblings and all the stories about Rust's past became images, the final scene it is not only great for its technical marvel, but because it is used to give life - after so much talking - to Rust.

Is it just me, or did one of the tattoos on Ledoux look like Cohle?
