    A thought after this episode...
    Was West gay?

    I kind of feel like that might be the forgotten tension between Hayes and West. Or at least a part of it?

    Regardless of whatever else in this season, watching him deal with his memory loss is just brutal. Oof :(

    Some of us are going to be just like that, if we make it that far.

    Therein lies the real horror, as far as I'm concerned.

    Cluck cluck, gibber gibber, my old man's a mushroom, etc.

    The way he behaves is basically perfect for how an older person with memory loss works.

    He's got it lucky honestly.

    From experience with my grandpa, I know. Where it leads to is heartbreaking.

    I just assume that it's getting started with Hayes, and that it's a long way down.

    Detective Honk to the rescue
    Hoyt is the biological father of Julie but not Will, Tom doesn’t know. I imagine they met in the chicken plant but I can’t recall if the dates match up for that. Lucy is in on it somehow... the letter to try and console Tom. Possibly she was getting paid to keep that secret, maybe Hoyt had other heirs. For one reason or another Hoyt decides he wants Julie back but... in a bunker in the basement. Will fought back and was killed during the abduction. The one-eyed man worked for Hoyt and has been bringing gifts to the kids. Julie escapes at some point. Security guy disappears Tom right after the episode ending we saw.

    Amelia will chase after the one-eyed man and probably die from an “accident” in 1990, I don’t think the one-eyed man is part of the evil crew. But Hoyt’s people are watching and security guy arranges for Amelia’s accident.

    Security man will implicate himself and gets killed by our True Detectives, possibly in retribution for killing Amelia, they know he’s in on the kidnapping but can’t get further up the chain.

    Interviewer been talking to grown up Julie.

    DA was pressured by Hoyt to put it on Woodard in the first place, he’s not in on it but “wouldn’t it be nice if this was wrapped up so people don’t have to be afraid and also here’s 50k for your campaign”.

    Twist: Tom is still alive in the basement in 2015 and is all the way fucked up.

    Remember where you heard it first!

    And uncle gets merc’d before the detectives find the 7k. That’s why the scene is the first real one from a perspective not of any of our protagonists - what we learned in that scene will not be learned by the main characters. No witnesses, that scene and Tom at the end was for the viewer.

    BONUS:
    Bunker theory: Amateur theory psychology and hippie drugs to condition her to forget her past and believe she just grew up at Hoyt’s.

    Just watching episode 6 now.

    Obviously the three leads are crushing it, but i haven't seen anyone praise the dad's performance

    He blows it away, the utter annihilating despair and then rickety self-reassembly

    And the mother is such a ragged open wound that it's almost impossible to tolerate her scenes at all

    The casting in this is superb (and I think the direction as well, to get this consistent level of performance)

    Yes, dad really gets to shine in Ep 6:
    His wtf reaction to being accused during interrogation is one of the most raw and gut-wrenchingly plausible I've ever seen

    Yeah, I was thinking that too.
    It's not over-the-top but I think West is demonstrably uncomfortable with Hayes' anti-gay sentiment during the car ride. From a modern perspective perhaps it's unfair to assume that his being sympathetic to a gay man means "he must be gay!" but it's not the only clue we've had so far and I think that's where they're headed.

    Scoot McNairy is pretty damned awesome. Was great on Halt and Catch Fire, too.

    I love that his name is Scoot. What a funny name. Good actor, but dang what a funny name.
