The second half of True Detective Season 2 is, in some ways, a different beast than the first - or so showrunner Nic Pizzolatto would have us believe.

This was signaled last week in everything from the loss of Velcoro's old school mustache to Bezzerides' return to old school cigarettes of the non-electronic variety.

Say what you will about the second season of True Detective (and the Internet has expressed a wide array of opinions), Nic Pizzolatto and company have proven undeniably adept at delivering some seriously intense white-knuckle finales.

Gotcha! If you paused the opening moments of True Detective Season 2 Episode 3, you could probably hear showrunner Nic Pizzolatto celebrating one of the great fake-outs in recent TV history.

Despite an A-list cast and a memorably eerie marketing campaign, the first season of True Detective snuck up on viewers who tuned in with no idea of what to expect from the HBO anthology series that had somehow attracted world-class acting talent.

For his second go-round, showrunner Nic Pizzolatto doesn't have to worry about attracting an audience, but instead faces the unenviable challenge of living up to the expectations of his own cultish following.
