True Detective's fourth season ramped up the drama ahead of its finale, starting with Evangeline Navarro recovering and spreading her sister's ashes and ending with Finn Bennett's Peter Prior shooting his father in the head.

After learning Hank Prior was in on the conspiracy as he was told to kill the one remaining research scientist in exchange for the job of police chief, the mysteries behind the murder investigation are now closer to a resolution.
