Nice article from Shane Ryan about last night's episode and many of the potential theories he or others share.
One of the theories that I find interesting is Hart being the Yellow King. It's too extreme of a conclusion to draw at present IMO, but anything seems plausible at this point.
Wow, the Hart angle definitely seems plausible. I didn't think about the timing of him stopping Cohle from entering the schoolhouse at the time he did. Additionally, when he ran up and told him the info on Ledoux, I don't recall seeing him on a walkie or phone at all in the car either.
And, as I pointed out earlier in the thread, I thought there was something to Hart's sociopathic tendencies. It's weird how he wants to be a hero to prostitutes and such, but he treats his wife and children like crap...
But, I think my theory may be more like it.
I definitely think they're going to incorporate some kind of supernatural, evil element. BUT, there are also many signs that Cohle hadn't been transformed into evil... For instance, if he "became" the Yellow King, would he kill Tuttle if Tuttle was actually evil himself? UNLESS, he killed Tuttle because he actually, sincerely wanted to stop those committing anti-Christian crimes, lol... But, still... And if he had been transformed into the Yellow King, considering his past history as a detective, would he be dumb enough to kill people and then start popping back up at the scenes of the crimes he's committing? I doubt it. That's too easy. But, I do have serious questions as to how or why he just disappeared off the map for 8 years - that's where I wonder if there is some supernatural element involved. AND, he did quote what Ledoux said to him to the present day detectives, so it seems like he bought into it...
Who knows man... it could go a ton of different directions but, I hope he doesn't turn out to be the killer.
