So, I know that the board has discussed this great series before. What did people think about last night's finale? I thought it was pretty great. From the absolute evil creepiness that was the Childress property to its inhabitants...goodness, I think I'm going to have nightmares about Erroll and his half-sisterladyfriend for awhile. Just pure evil incarnate.
And the best part, of course, was the evolution of the relationship between Marty and Rust Cohle. It was great to see the self-awareness in Marty at the end, when he breaks down and cries, and to see Rust go from someone who believes in nothing to a man who finally starts to see the glass as half-full, in his own way. Really a great ending.
Some interesting links to reviews below; the video from HBO explaining the finale is excellent. What did everyone think about the finale and how the series arc concluded?
