There Really Was A Monster At The End Of The True Detective Finale Dream — And It Crashed HBO GO For 4 Hours!!!
HBO GO not working the night of the True Detective finale? What is this?! Carcosa?!?
That's right, on the evening that the world would finally know if Marty and Rust managed to catch the scarred Yellow King, HBO GO crashed, which left many people scarred:
Due to overwhelmingly popular demand for #TrueDetective, we've been made aware of an issue affecting some users. Please try again soon.

It wasn't long before users started to, in the immortal words Cohle, "ask the right f*cking questions," like "why is there such evil in the world that would allow HBO GO not to work on a night like this?"
In fact, many would be watchers were quick to compare the loading wheel to the circular imagery used throughout the show on Twitter:

We always felt that the whole time-circle spiral kind of looked like the Time Warner symbol, but these comparisons are pretty fitting!
We bet a lot of fans had enough time to carve out little beer can origami kids while they waited. We're glad they eventually resolved the issue just like True Detective resolved its plot this season.
To paraphrase Rust from last night, once there was only dark on people's TVs. If you ask us, the light is winning seeing how HBO GO is now up and running.
