True Detective writer Nic Pizzolatto gave an interview. In it, he says a number of interesting things, but I found this to be the most intriguing:

"I think given the amorphous nature of the evil they’re pursuing, its historical roots in culture and government, they would have to be willing to die to fully pursue their absolute justice. And they each understand this."

And as an indication of where I'm coming from in my approach to this show, I am reminded of the following quote from another law enforcement officer, a Sheriff's Deputy on another crime show that, once upon a time, was my obsession:

But it is said that if you confront the Black Lodge with imperfect courage, it will utterly annihilate your soul.

Not so sure about Marty, but Rust Cohle has had quite a few years in the wilderness to burn away the excesses of his soul. I think he'll be entering the final episode with perfect courage.

As an aside, I'm not the only one who sees the parallels between these shows.
