What Will Happen in True Detective Season 4, Episode 3?

Season 4's second episode set up plenty of intriguing developments for Liz Danvers and the rest of the True Detective cast, most notably the fact that one of the eight scientists thought to be dead is alive.

This realization came when the multiple bodies frozen in ice were thawed out and counted, with one in the hospital already as Danvers and Evangeline Navarro attempted to figure out how this whole situation came to be.

The personal drama between the two officers of the law also came back to the forefront, with Danvers telling Navarro they would be finished with one another once this case is closed.

With hints of the supernatural adding more mystery to this story, such as the strange symbols seen on the bodies and the areas surrounding them, viewers will be anxious to find out how the people working the scene will solve the case at hand.

The first two episodes of True Detective Season 4 are now streaming on Max. Episode 3 will debut on HBO and Max at 9:00 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on Sunday, January 28.
