A violent denouement in the forest clears the Dora Lange case and turns Cohle and Hart into local heroes.

As time passes and his daughters grow older, Hart faces new tensions and temptations, and Cohle learns from a double-murder suspect that there could be much more to an old case than he'd once thought. In 2012, Gilbough and Papania put their cards on the table, presenting new intelligence that threatens Cohle and causes Hart to reassess everything he thought he knew about his former partner.
1x6 Haunted Houses aired: Sunday Feb 23, 2014
In 2002, Cohle and Hart begin to fall back to familiar and violent obsessions. Hart exacts savage vengeance on a pair of teenage boys, and Cohle becomes convinced they left something undone in 1995.

Hart is reintroduced to a former prostitute he met during the Lange investigation.
