Lost called, it wants its polar bear back.
One of the many mysteries of True Detective: Night Country is embodied by one of the cutest and deadliest animals on the planet: the majestic and terrifying polar bear.
In the fictional town of Ennis, Alaska, 150 miles north of the Arctic Circle, during “the long night”, this enormous pagophilic carnivore turns up again and again. It wanders through town in very real form; it appears in characters’ homes in plush toy form; images of it flash at us during the opening credits. While these bears don’t have anything to do with their island-dwelling kin in Lost, they strike the same chord of mystery in True Detective.
