True Detective: Night Country Episode 5 Recap

 

Danvers discovers from Otis Heiss that he sustained injuries similar to those of the dead Tsalal scientists while mapping the underground ice caves where Annie K was murdered. She demands that he take her to the caves’ entrance, but Heiss, still in withdrawal, asks for heroin in exchange for his help, which she refuses.

Danvers and Navarro attempt to investigate the caves on their own but find the entrance, located on Silver Sky mining company property, has been sealed. They learn that locals refer to the caves as “Night Country” and that a recurring spiral symbol serves as a warning near the entrances.

Danvers is called to Silver Sky under the pretense of discussing protests over the mine, but owner Kate McKittrick reveals she has footage of Danvers and Navarro trespassing at the cave entrance. It’s revealed that the mining company is linked to Tuttle United, which funds Tsalal, and Danvers suspects the mine is financing Tsalal’s false pollution reports.

Captain Connelly pressures Danvers to accept that the Tsalal deaths were caused by a “weather event,” threatening to expose her involvement in a previous case if she continues her investigation.

McKittrick secretly meets with Hank and suggests he eliminate Heiss to prevent him from leading Danvers to the cave. It’s revealed that McKittrick bribed Hank years ago to move Annie K’s body, promising him the position of Ennis Chief of Police.

Danvers confronts Prior about Hank’s knowledge of a past case leading to a confrontation at Danvers’ house where Hank fatally shoots Heiss. Prior intervenes, shooting his father to protect Danvers.

Navarro arrives and the trio decides to cover up the murders. Prior cleans the scene and they plan to dispose of the bodies while Danvers and Navarro head to the ice caves to uncover the truth about Annie K’s murder and the Tsalal case.
