    After the first big “reveal”, it leads me to assume she was kidnaped by the Hoyt family because she’s their daughter. Hoyt fucked her mom at the chicken factory (he owns it) and had the dirty cop taint the crime scene.

    What happened to Hays’ wife I still don’t know, but I’m thinking he and Roland murdered everyone to do with the girl’s disappearance in order for her to be free from them.

    This show REALLY terrifies me at becoming old. They make it look like you’re living in a haunted house.

    Yeah that’s probably a sound theory. I’m guessing Roland disappeared the Security Chief that probably fucked up Tom. Not sure what the significance of Tom being closeted is either.

    I think the only significance is that he’s probably not her real father. That’s why I’m assuming she left that cryptic hotline message.

    Story certainly got more serpentine. I just hope they don’t try to over-complicate things.

    Good point. I guess it’s starting to tie together, sort of. The only other unknown variable is Hayes’ wife.

    That’s the wildcard. I’m not seeing her involved in the crime anymore, instead I think she may have been murdered while investigating it instead. Whatever happened, they aren’t telling us for a reason. If she died of cancer o something we would heave been told right away.

    I hope Scoot McNairy gets awards for playing Tom. He REALLY makes you feel his pain.

    Yeah maybe. But she would have had to have died after the 1990 investigation, so far they made it seem like she died in the interim since there are pictures of her nearing elderly age.

    HOLY SHIT THIS ISN’T AN ANTHOLOGY SHOW ANYMORE!!!!

    .....so much still to be answered. Was that Michael Rooker as the voice of Hoyt at the end?

    And this is a looooooong shot, but how great would it be to see Marty and Rust return next season?

    The story (and cult) from season one has been tied into this. That spiral was on the back of Dora Lang (the murder victim) in the first season. Rust and Marty’s photos were on that newspaper article Sarah Gadon’s character showed to Hays.

    Basically, it’s the show runner saying “I’m listening to you.”
