True Detective Episode 7 Review: “The Final Country”

“True Detective” Episode 7 intrigued us with the tragic tale of Isabel Hoyt and and the terrifying introduction of her father, Edward Hoyt. Plus, we got to see the epic beatdown of the contemptible Harris James and behold Mahershala Ali in his giant boxer shorts.

Join The King Bee and Gene Lyons as Shat on TV outlines James’ involvement from the Hoyt family’s 1977 automotive incident through the 2015 documentary. We also discuss the Edward Hoyt phone call and its impact on Detective Wayne Hays. And Mr. June gives this spooky skeleton of a story some connective tissue.

    I’m going back and rewatching this season, looking for things I may have missed. I noticed that Will’s father seemed surprised when they found the playboys in his room. Also Amelia describes him as sensitive. We know the kids went to the woods which is said to be a homosexual hang out. What if Will was the gay one? I’m just getting started on the rewatch but am interested to see what pops up now that I have some of the other mysteries explained.
