On the topic of unreliable narrators, has this been discussed here regarding the dolls scene with Marty's daughters? Note that this episode is called 'Seeing things'.

I think it's probable that this scene (which is often used to theorize about Audrey being a victim of the cult) only existed in Marty's head.

There's an interview with some actual philosopher with views similar to Cohle's here that I found quite interesting.

Yeah I was wondering about that too.

But he didn't imagine the drawings Audrey made.

I don't think he imagined the doll scene, either.

I just hope the last 2 episodes don't feature a skeleton in a ditch with a long ginger beard...

I think we've seen the last of Ginger in episode 5.

But Maise had the doll in her hand so Audrey wouldn't be able to have it kneel between the Barbie's legs?

Ah, time to go rewatch....will let y'all know.

I realized this like two days ago and will be DVRing the Oscars. I can watch the first half hour before TD, then catch up on the Oscars. It is still very inconvenient for me as I love the Oscars, but this new episode of TD occurs only once in our lifetime, or are we destined to watch it again and again.?

So I actually don't think those dolls were there anymore.



This link Great Ruiner mentioned before shows that Audrey was sitting where those dolls would've been, and the blankets seem to magically move as well.



Maise actually holds the kneeling male doll in her hand and appears to put it away. Even assuming Maise leaves it on the ground Audrey would have to take the doll and put in place but she seems to be getting up before Maise does.



eta: I rewound and watched it a few times. The light pink blanket does seem to shift.

This show already has a 9.5 on IMDb. I mean, that's the same score Game of Thrones has. It's a score well-earned.

I feel the same about the Oscars, Baitac. And like you, True Detective must come first. Whether time is a circle or not, I am destined to rewatch TD again and again.

Many of us have predicted that Audrey is the daughter abused - because of these dolls, the drawings, and the teenage sex. But what if the abused is actually Maise? What if Maise is the daughter who placed the male doll in the white shirt between the legs of the naked female doll? Possible? Or maybe both girls have been abused?

Regardless, the more I think about it the less likely I believe Maggie to be somehow complicit in whatever the cult or abuse is all about.

I'd be surprised if it wasn't Audrey. Ep 1 I think it was, when Magie's father is speaking with Hart he says something like "world's going mad, girls going around having sex, white faces and wearing black etc" That's pretty much exactly how 2002 Audrey is portrayed so there's probably something in that.

Thanks. Hm, I might actually have to finish Ligotti now. Started both Conspiracy and Teatro Grotesco and couldn't finish them, even though he should be right up my alley. I suppose there's only so much that even I can take.

Ginger fans rejoice. He will be appearing in a new Starz show this summer. He will be clean shaven, however.
