On tonight's all-new, penultimate episode of 'True Detective' (we know, we can hardly believe it's almost over, either), Marty and Rust reunite in present day -- it's time to pay their old debt on the Dora Lange case, and the cases of every other missing woman and child in Louisiana who went unnoticed. The detectives team up to attempt to solve the mystery of Carcosa and the Yellow King once and for all, and they come chillingly closer than ever.

Even before HBO's 'True Detective' captivated audiences and inspired a wave of think pieces on everything from literary references to its take on women, the moody FBI drama had feature director Cary Fukunaga behind the camera to deliver its iconic visual flair. Now, with season 2 all-but-assured, what role will Fukunaga have with future 'True Detective,' and how might creator Nic Pizzolatto shake things up with its new leading roles?

Long before HBO's dark and dreary 'True Detective' became a critical rave after only three episodes, showrunner Nic Pizzolatto explained that a second season would likely follow the anthology approach with a new cast and original story. And while HBO has yet to formally renew the Woody Harrelson-Matthew McConaughey for a second season, what of HBO's latest dealings all-but-confirms 'True Detective' will open a second case in 2015 for season 2?

On tonight's new episode of 'True Detective,' Hart and Cohle follow a lead that takes them into the heart of a religious ministry and has them contemplating the meaning (or lack thereof) of life. Meanwhile, Hart continues to face problems at home, while Cohle's tireless efforts off the clock may pay off in the lead they've been waiting for. There's no new episode of 'True Detective' next week, folks, but this one will leave a lasting impression while you wait.
