For Everyone Who Needs To Know WTF Is Happening On "True Detective" Before The Finale
Who killed Caspere? Oh, I don't know. We just have about 40 suspects. (Spoilers ahead).
In Episode 6, Frank talked to Ilena, a Mexican prostitute who said a cop paid her to pawn Caspere's goods (which conveniently framed Ledo Amarilla and made him the number one suspect in Caspere's murder).
Woodrugh talks to a cop who worked on the original stolen diamond case in '92. The former cop reveals that the jewelry raid in Hollywood was blamed on riots occurring around the same time.
He says that the riots seemed like a scapegoat because the jewelry shop owners were killed by a professional. The worst part? The shop owners' children were hiding in a display case and witnessed their parents' murder.
Bezzerides gets into one of the exclusive parties posing as a prostitute. In the party she has horrible flashbacks to being sexually abused as a child.
Bezzerides ends up reacting badly to the drugs. She blows her cover when she finds the missing girl she's been looking for, Vera. While trying to escape the party, she kills a security guard who was trying to choke and kill her.
Before escaping the party, Bezzerides sees some notable characters present, including: Police Chief Holloway, Tony Chessani, Osip Agronov, Richard Geldof (attorney general), and Jacob McCandless (the leader of Catalyst group).
At the party, Bezzerides finds the missing girl — Vera — that she's been looking for.
Vera insists she isn't missing and that she chose the life she currently has.
Vera also tells Bezzerides the other girl in the photo is "Laura."
Vera reveals that Tasha, Caspere's "favorite" girl, was taken to a back cabin by Tony Chessani and seemingly killed because she was caught with a camera in the party.
Paul Woodrugh steals a contract from the party, which details a big land deal.
In the contract, Catalyst is selling part of Caspere's shares* to Tony Chessani...
... And the other part to Osip Argronov, a Russian-Israeli mobster who is gunning to gain control of Vinci land — including Frank's.
Velcoro tells Frank, who is rightfully angry because this means that the land shares he bought from Caspere and already paid for are being resold to Chessani and Argronov.
Blake is listed as the holding company's treasurer, which means Blake helped Chessani and Osip screw Frank over and take Caspere's shares.
Paul Woodrugh is being blackmailed by an Unknown number, who is sending him compromising pictures of him and his former war buddy, Miguel Gilb.
Paul takes his mother and wife-to-be, Emily, to a motel room for safety in case his cover is blown.
After some detective ~sleuthing~ Woodrugh finds out that Lt. Burris and Teague Dixon were the cops assigned to the stolen diamond case in '92, and Caspere was the chief accountant on the case.
Which we can guess means that Dixon, Burris, and Caspere were all working together to sell the diamonds.
So to be clear, there were three law officials on the case: Teague Dixon, Kevin Burris, and Police Chief Holloway.
And in case you forgot who the hell those people are, Dixon is on the left (he's dead now), and Burris and Holloway are on the right (Burris is the suit).
Woodrugh also sees that Bezzerides is wanted for the death of a security guard.
Bezzerides sends her sister and father into hiding with Detective Elvis Ilinca (her former partner).
Velcoro plans to meet with Katherine Davis, the state attorney leading the case the three detectives are working on, but finds her dead.
Davis was killed with one of Velcoro's guns, framing Velcoro and meaning he is now wanted for murder along with Bezzerides.
