Moreover, in one of the scenes of ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’, documentary producer Elisa redirected the recent Will and Julie Purcell case to a series of other crimes.

The image is basically a photograph showing season -one actors Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson). The caption on the photograph, however, read “Former State Police Officers Stop Alleged Serial Killer”. As a matter of fact, Rust and Marty’s story wrapped up in 2012 long before season 3’s 2015 setting. It would be interesting to watch these timeline connections of season one and three plots in the upcoming episode.
The laptop image appears in 2015 when Hays is being interviewed by Elisa Montgomery (Sarah Gadon). Surprisingly, the interviewer commented:
“They’re all gone, vanished, killed, kept silent.”
After her comments, the article appears on screen revealing two protagonists from season one. It is perhaps possible that Cohle and Hart lost their lives during their struggle to unveil a paedophile conspiracy that prevails in both seasons.

Moreover, Elisa hinted that paedophile rings are “connected to people of influence.” Next, the straw dolls are also found near Will Purcell’s (Phoenix Elkin) body in one of the season 3 episode.
“It’s been theorized that the straw dolls are a sign of paedophile groups, like the crooked spiral,”
The Nic Pizzolatto’s third season of True Detective on HBO and Sky Atlantic aired on January 13, 2019. Mahershala Ali’s exclusive performance as Detective Wayne Hays is nothing unusual to comment. Moreover, you can watch Stephen Dorff as Mahersala’s partner Roland West. The pair is struggling to resolve missing children case over three decades. Season 2, however, fails to draw fan’s attention.
