Are you watching True Detective: Night Country and have a lot of questions? You’re in good, obsessive company if you’re scanning for clues like we are.

In the depths of this cold, cold winter, Mashable has been spending “the long night” yarn-walling it, speaking to the folks behind the HBO show, and watching the series frame by frame so you don’t miss a spiral, polar bear, John Carpenter reference, or confirmed fan theory.
