Did you quit watching True Detective Season 2 because of how bleak and slow-paced it was?
Did you never really watch but hate not having any idea what your coworkers were complaining about around the water cooler?

Whatever reason you didn't tune in to the show or 90-minute finale, we have a quick guide that will allow you to get all the memes, all the angst, and none of the confusion!
Check out the [SPOILER ALERT] recap of Omega Station (below):
The last time True Detective season 2 killed off one of its main characters, it turned out to be a smokescreen — more of a TV cliffhanger than the type on HBO.
But on Sunday night's penultimate episode, someone finally met their ultimate end.

After last week's deadly sex party (you don't get to say that on every recap), the team is running their renegade murder investigation out of a seedy motel.
Say what you want about this season, but it doesn't get much more pulpy than that.
Unfortunately, it's not just
Holy crap, True Detective!
OK, for everyone saying that nothing happens in Season 2, obviously that's all changed now.
The decision to spend almost the entire first episode on character backstory was not a very popular one, but we're guessing bringing things to a head this early isn't exactly what fans had in mind!

The second ep was all about the early legwork of the murder investigation by detectives Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell, and Taylor Kitsch and crook Vince Vaughn, who has a financial interest in solving the case.
It all seems very first-ten-minutes-of-Law & Order until things go True Detective Season 1-style crazy!
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
Though we might've fallen in love with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in HBO's crime anthology — we think this season of True Detective might just be better!
This time around, in Sunday's premiere, we have a new set of A-listers including Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, Taylor Kitsch, and Colin Farrell – who're slated to solve a new crime in the (fictional) city of Vinci, CA.
It really wouldn't be True Detective without … a murder!
Well this one is equal parts funny and creepy!
We told you Friday how Colin Farrell was once a murder suspect for an unsolved homicide, and now, we've got Vince Vaughn's funny reaction!
Vince went on The Tonight Show to talk True Detective and everything else with host Jimmy Fallon, and in the process, reacted to news of his soon-to-be co-star coming up the suspect in a murder investigation!

As to be expected, Vaughn is bewildered — what a reveal and a night that must have been!
Ch-ch-check out Vince's telling of the story (below), and Colin, maybe you oughta be investigated on the next season of True Detective!
You can't handle the truth!
Jimmy Fallon's games are always fun, but there's probably none more revealing than True Confessions!
If you can't wait for the new season of True Detective — premiering Sunday on HBO — starring both Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, then you're in luck! Jimmy sits down with both both the stars for a little good cop/bad cop!

In the game, each person opens an envelope, and it either has a true statement from their life or a fabricated story. The two other men then get to question and interrogate the person for 60 seconds and announce at the end if they are telling the truth or not!
So if you want to know if Colin was suspected of murder, or Jimmy got his head stuck in a fence or Vaughn played the King in The King and I, ch-ch-check out the clip (above)!
