'True Detective': The 21 Creepiest Images From The Show So Far

Before the finale, take a look back at the shots we can't shake.

In the weeks leading up to its final episode, "True Detective" has entranced viewers with its mix of mystery, philosophy and horrifying imagery. Part of what has separated the show from the rest of the procedural pack is the cinematic element director Cary Fukunaga has brought to Nic Pizzolatto's words.

Before we sit down to watch the last episode in Rust and Marty's tale, let's take a look back at the images that haven't left us and probably won't for a long time.
