True Detective | Season 2 Episode 7 Recap

Listen to the Podcast

The truth shall set you free — perhaps even fatally, in the case of a few characters — in the latest episode of TRUE DETECTIVE, called “Black Maps and Motel Rooms.”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward), Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) and Jeremiah Panhorst (@jpanhorst) are back together to podcast about the penultimate episode of TRUE DETECTIVE season two. In this week’s episode, the trio discusses everything including…

Antonio Draws First Blood: The first point has been scored in the death draft! Antonio nailed his prediction — or shot it, rather — with the tragic death of Paul Woodrugh this week. The hosts talk through the way the death played out and the consequences that are sure to spill out into the final episode of the season, and they also reset the stakes for the draft heading into the finale.

Ray + Ani = Rani: Okay, we’re shipping it! Now that it’s official, the hosts talk about Ray and Ani sealing the deal and what that means for both characters moving forward, especially given the emotional epiphanies both detectives reached in this last episode.

Frank Semyon Becomes Frank Castle: Is Vince Vaughn actually about to access his inner Punisher? It sure seems that way now that he’s ordered an insane amount of guns, twice over, in what appears to be a plan to take down Osip and reclaim his stolen millions, and then some. The question is, will Frank’s plan work out, or has he reached the end of his rope?

And Much More: Josh, Antonio and Jeremiah talk about all the major revelations surrounding the Caspere case, the crimes committed by the Vinci police officers, the ramifications of the 1992 diamond heist, predictions for the 90-minute finale, and more. Check back next week for their recap of the TRUE DETECTIVE season two finale, and let us know what you think of this week’s show in the comments below!
