As we head into the finale episode, there are still so many questions. Here is our rundown of what we hope gets answered on the finale.
– Where is Julie Purcell? What originally happened to Julie? Where is she now? The Ringer has reported that one of the theories about Julie Purcell is that the reporter who is interviewing retired Detective Hays, Elisa Montgomery, is actually Julie. We’re not thinking this is true, but, it’s a nice theory.
– Who murdered Will Purcell? We still don’t know who killed Will. Is it the same person or people who kidnapped Julie? Or, did Julie not even get kidnapped? Maybe she just ran away. Was the church somehow involved in Will’s death?
– How did Amelia die? It’s pretty clear that she is no longer alive. Did she die of a disease or old age? Was there an accident? We also wonder if Amelia was involved more with the Purcell case than she lets on.
– Will Julie and Will’s case be totally solved? Will the former detectives make it out alive? Mahershala Ali, who plays Hays, told TV Insider that, “As long as they can’t solve this crime, they’re not whole … Wayne is grasping at things that’ll help him not sink so fast, and the case is part of that. He desperately needs to close this out.”
The finale episode of True Detective season 3 airs at the same time as the 2019 Oscars. Mahershala Ali, who stars on True Detective, is nominated for Best Supporting Actor for the movie Green Book, in which he starred as Don Shirley.
