    Ok here's my bullshit theory for posterity after 2 episodes
    there's no kidnapper, the kids were running away from an awful situation, probably being abused by the uncle too. The daughter was the one making the straw dolls and the brother probably died accidently so she tried to give him some kind of funeral? I don't think they've said how he died yet?

    Anyway this was a good start to the show

    I was a little distracted by some other stuff during this episode (episode 3) but
    are we like, really throwing DnD out there as something sinister the boy might've been doing?

    I think it’s a red herring. The important part is
    that the kids were regularly meeting with someone and lying about it.
    I have to watch again though, I was also distracted.

    I mean
    Circa 1980s? Yeah. Same with wearing a Black Sabbath shirt.

    I agree with knitdan that it's probably a red herring but
    I would find it hilarious if True Detective and fucking RIVERDALE both did spins on DnD satanic panic in the same year

    That there would be a Walgreens in 1990 Northwest Arkansas is the most unbelievable thing in True Detective thus far

    Anyways my actual current thoughts at the moment
    The Purcell boy was playing DND with the teens in the woods and Julie would join to hang out with her actual father. Somehow there was an accident and Will cracked open his head and died. Everyone panics and shuts up. Julie’s actual father runs away with her. Maybe knowing something is amiss in the Purcell house.

    And the teens and other red herrings will result in the town going apeshit resulting in the case going nuts

    When Wayne talks to Tom's parents at the boy's funeral his parents allude to the daughter possibly not being his I think. There's been a few other little indicators if I remember right as well.

    Episode 3
    So I definitely felt frustrated that the show kept introducing new clues and elements and pulling them right out of nowhere without explaining how they're significant (the D&D dice, the bag of toys, whatever happened to the dad and Julie in 1990, how West pulled the dad out of a tailspin in 1985, whatever Hayes "left at the crime scene", the new info the documentarian pulled out of nowhere)

    and I think that's exactly how the show wants us to feel. Because that's where 2015 Hayes is. He remembers a bunch of details but not how they're linked together and it's driving him crazy.

    Also the Wal-Mart scene is Adult Fear Concentrated. As a dad, it was hard to watch. Also remembering that we haven't seen Hayes' daughter in 2015 yet and there were some vague lines about her "not going over there anymore", the show is very purposefully not telling us things right now.

    So.... who you all think was that Suit and Tie with all the VC.

    And why would Hayes think they would know whether or not Mercurys are still in production??

    I think
    Suit and tie guy is the dude who wants to be attorney general in the 80s.

    Or at least is the reason why he feels super shitty about the whole thing post 90s.

    Hayes has said he wears a clip-on because he's afraid of somebody strangling him if he wore a real tie

    that ghost is probably whoever he saw get killed that way

    In the preview for episode 5
    there's a shot of the director, Elisa, and she's got a laptop open next to her
    The screen is showing a news article about Rust and Marty catching the killer from S1

    Woodard makes me think of a friend of a cousin and myself when we were children. He was a Vietnam vet and lived a reclusive life. He spent his days maintaining his weapons, playing nes games, and reading. He taught my cousin and I how to make traps, break down and clean certain guns we didn't have experience with, how to fight, and he let us play his nes. He taught me how to cook and gave me his prized fighting fish. We made bows and arrows. Watched horror movies. Played chess. I learned more in a year of hanging with this old dude than I did from my grandfathers combined. Hell even my father truth be told.

    Aside from myself and my cousin his daughter was the only company he ever had. He stopped letting us come over after one of his neighbors called the police on him. He was accused of being a pervert because of the children that came and went from his home. Those children being my cousin and I. He moved away not long after to live with his daughter and rented his house out. I never saw him again but his daughter came to my cousins with a couple knives he wanted us to have and his nes and games.

    That old dude wasn't a pervert far as I know and I feel so bad for what people said about him. He was a broken sad man for sure. But a creep? Nah. I hope those assholes burn in hell and that he had a good life after all that.

    Also this season of true detective has be very good. I'm glad to see it's back.

    I contest the idea that West Finger would have Catholic church with a congregation of around a thousand.

    That said that dear, good woman Patty Faber is the most picture perfect accurate representation of an Ozarker I have ever seen.

    So doin a rematch with a friend to catch them up I noticed
    "Children should laugh" has appeared at least twice, in the ransom weird letter and the mother repeats it a couple times in the last episode

    Surely that ain't nothin right

    I'm kinda thinking...

    (spoilers for episode 4, but also potential further along stuff just due to local history and stuff)
    the mother might play into it but more so as a proxy on behalf of the Hoyt chicken plant where she worked. It's being brought up a lot, and it's been sticking out as a fictional business. They haven't been shy about bringing up some of the major corporate influences on the region with Wal-Mart specifically. (This is where Wal-Mart began basically) Buuuuuut Tyson Chicken is the other major business in town. So a fictional proxy makes me slightly suspect.

    That was some of the realest, most heavy shit I've seen on television in a long, long time.

    That ending was very strong.

    He’s not showing any connection to the show on IMDb. Maybe he’s friends with someone who was and he was just hanging out?

    I liked this season, and the ending, but I feel like it doesn't reach the highs season 1 did
    Which, maybe it was never going to, but I was kinda of really keyed up and shaking after the season 1 finale and after this one I was like "that was a well made show I enjoyed watching"
