I will be honest. I laughed out loud when old Maher's Ali, who was sitting alone in his house, finally picked up the book his wife had written 25 years ago, found an important passage, and said aloud to no one, "Maybe I should have read this here long ago Time. "
This is the kind of subtlety that you get in True Detective 3rd season. It's one of a few developments that finally appear in a pivotal fifth episode in a very slow-moving season. At this point, I somehow feel as old as 70-year-old Hays, waiting for something different this season than a real red herring. This is a show that has taken such careful steps to sneak the answer that it does not really say anything.
But we finally get to the point of this episode. Kinda.
After five episodes, this series tells us who was originally charged with murders of the Purcell children in 1
So there is one thing, even if the belief is wrong, as we all knew all season – and later in the episode. In 1990, Hays West took a photo of the rucksack of Woodard's estate. It certainly does not look like it was an explosion, and Hays believes it could have been evidence attached to the scene.
But before he can convince West of this theory, they get another piece of evidence. A call to the tip hotline.
Following says the woman in the call – who could be Julie -:
They are looking for me, whom I have seen on TV. I saw him on TV. Leave me alone. Let him leave me alone. Tell him to leave me alone … I know what he did … The man who behaves like my father on TV … Where is my brother? Will … I do not know what he did to him. We let him rest … Tell him to leave me alone … He took me and I'll never come back …
Okay, at first glance, that does not seem to be good for Tom Purcell to be.  But before we can see how the detectives react to the call, let's go back to 2015, where Old Hays and Old West have a nice little reunion. There, Old Hays Old West explains that Lucy Purcell wrote the ransom demand in 1980. He learned that because he had finally read his wife's damned book.
"I think she wanted Tom to feel better. Try to get him to let go, "says Hays.
" What if she did it, we already knew she had a connection with … the guy you just said, "West says.
Hays: "He visited me the day after what happened Hoyt I made a decision I had other things to think about Including my family He knew what we were doing He also seemed to be involved few things in the dark. "
