"… I knew my daughter waited for me there. So clear, I could feel her. I could feel a piece of my pop, too. It was like I was a part of everything that I ever loved, and we were all the 3 of us, just fadin’ out. And all I had to do was let go and I did. I said, “Darkness, yeah!” and I disappeared. But I could still feel her love there, even more than before. Nothing, there was nothing but that love. And I woke up."
True Detective Season Finale. I thank you for the wonderful 8 episodes of one of the best shows ever. Sadly it was short, but waiting weekly for an hour episode was worth it. Every time I would re watch an episode, new things would show up. The connections with the episodes were amazing. Last episode made me cry. I understand why there wouldn’t be any more season/episode with the same characters involved because they ended it perfectly and there is nothing else possible. Although a lot of shows drag on to make money with silly ideas, I’m glad this show will not because it’s already perfect. I don’t know how many times I watched certain episodes, but I am willing to watch this entire season again. Thank you for this amazing show (: I will be waiting for season 2! Even though it’s going to have new characters. These two both deserve Emmy awards! Matthew and Woody are truely.. amazing (:
All told, the sequence clocks in at around six minutes. Fukunaga and the crew ran through the whole thing seven times while the cameras were rolling. The director built in possible edit points if two takes had to be combined to make the perfect version of the shot, but anyone who is wondering should know that the sequence everyone saw in the episode is, in fact, a true single take and one of the great achievements of filmmaking for television - True Detective: How Did They Pull Off That Final Shot?
