I think he did it to force his hand. Dude just didn't want to live any longer.

I would be very dubious of this given the setting

in general though, if a group of rednecks beat me up and told me to stop talking to kids, i would probably stop.

it's illegal af to lethally booby trap your property (aside from the fact he had actual landmines), and also illegal to defend the curtilage like he was doing. all of this with the premise of messing with people's kids and also him not calling the cops or anything. it would go down as first-degree murder for sure.

AND he clearly killed Will Purcell being that they found the red back pack under his stairs.

I just finished episode 3 and I'm about to give up. This shit is too fucking slow. Good story, but it drags and drags.

Is it worth sticking with it?

I'm mainlining GOT right now... through S6 for the third time.

Going from that to slow ass dialog is like watching paint dry.

I feel like the acting this season has been absolutely superb but the story just doesn’t quite have that it factor to it that captured me like season one. I know that’s a pretty tough comparison but I don’t really see myself watching this season again when I’ve binged season one an embarrassing number of times.

^I think part of that is because the plot is very similar to season 1. If this had switched places with season 1, then I feel like we'd all like this one just as much.

Sidenote, I was pleased to see them reference season 1 in general in the last episode. They can rightfully forget that season 2 exists though.

Not moving fast enough, they're going to have to slam pack the last episode full of stuff. 1.5 hour show but still...

ehhh

^^ One thing that really set S1 apart to me was the creepy factor that was involved from the very start. I thought we were going to get some of that this time when the dolls and the boy were found but that never really materialized past that point. S1 has it all over the place with the Dora Lane death to the wooden things found to the mural on the abandoned church to the whole Reggie Ledoux aspect and so on all the way to the video Rust found and what turned out to be Carcosa.

I even defended season two some but this season was awful. The acting was fantastic but the story was just boring.

Almost felt intentional by the writer. The "Making a Murderer" chick doing the interviews represented the reddit fan base with all their theories, (imo) I dunno. It wasn't groundbreaking tv or anything, but I enjoyed Dorff and Ali.

What weird old guy was it you were talking about?

Two questions though:

1) One eyed guy said that Lucy Purcell was paid off by the Hoyt's to keep quiet. She knew the kids were regularly going to play with Isabelle. When she got home from work that night though, all she knew was that the kids were missing. Why didn't she tell that to Hays and West when they first questioned her about their arrangement? Nothing was illegal about that. Yes, that one cop paid her off to stay quiet about Will dying and Julie being kidnapped, but there is no way he got to her before she first talked to Hays and West. That would mean that from the time that Will died, that cop would have to find her at work, tell her that her son is dead and that she'd never see her daughter again, get her to accept the money, then have her compose herself enough to where two trained detectives wouldn't be able to tell something was up. Timing just doesn't make sense.

2) What was the uncle's role in all of this? He was ready to talk to the detectives in 1990 but then disappeared and his remains was found at the bottom of a drained quarry in 2015. How did he know everything to begin with?

Yeah, ending was kind of meh. The whole season they build it up to be one of the characters we already know behind it all, but it just turns out to be someone that hasn't been introduced until the last episode. I guess one eyed guy was in on it yes, but he was just a helper in all of it.

I enjoyed watching, but it certainly was annoying that they basically got the whole story from the guy who they'd been looking for from the beginning who seems like he wanted to be found starting around the middle timeline.

Question: when the dad found the pink room, what did he see?? He said her name I think, right? Wasn't his daughter gone by then?

How did the dad find the pink room again? I think I fell asleep that episode and woke up as he was walking down that hallway

After the uncle showed up and told the cops he had info, the dad finds him and beats up/held him at gunpoint and I think he just gave him the name Hoyt, so the dad broke into the Hoyt house and found the room

Yeah that annoyed me too. The guy said he was watching Hays regularly from his house all the time because he was trying to gather the courage to tell him everything. He eventually would have. So that just means that in 2015, Hays and West would have had to do absolutely nothing and they would have found the truth. Or at least the truth up until the faked death of Julie.

good season, mostly a return to form after a truly disappointing season 2

i don't understand the reason for revealing the actual events in the way they did though. they chased these answers for 7+ hours of television, across at least 3 different timelines (felt like there was a 4th in ep 8), and then they just spill it all in like 15 minutes with the one eyed dude. seems like it could have been more enjoyable to spread that stuff out, more police work etc.

and i guess we're just supposed to take that guys word for everything? assuming he's telling the truth? i guess the facts as we know them support it.

Hays wife is the ONLY thing tying us to Lucy being her daughter, and that her and the landscape guy ever even made it out.

Just so many possible ways to interpret the ending. Not Final enough. Season 1...Wrapped up. Breaking Bad has good closure. I think we have come to expect too much from TD since season 1 was the masterpiece it was.
