Fan Theorizing and True Detective

“Fan-crafted theorizing is fun enough – it’s a solid way to keep up audience engagement over a show’s run and even inject excitement into series that might be flailing on its own (see: that horrifying “dead mother” theory that’s been circulating amongst How I Met Your Mother fans, which is either entirely insane or decidedly brilliant) – but it can be troublesome when an audience becomes too obsessed with the possibilities and suddenly feels that the show is somehow beholden to them.” Film School Rejects has more. And there is discussion of plot points in the show and the finale, as there is in this interview with screenwriter Nic Pizzolatto at Entertainment Weekly.
