True Detective June 2015 Episode Titles, Plots, Air Dates, TV Promos. HBO has released the True Detective: Season 2 episode titles, official plot synopses, and the air dates for the June 2015 episodes of its cop TV series. The True Detective episodes discussed are episodes 9-10. The two new True Detective: Season 2 TV commercials are entitled ‘Chaos’ and ‘Stand.’

On the two True Detective: Season 2 TV spots:

In the first trailer, Los Angeles detective Ray Velacro (Colin Farrell), a corrupt cop under the control of crime lord Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn), asks if he is even supposed to solve the case he’s investigating. Seymon also says at one point, “I need a direction to turn, or I may just start pulling down walls.”

The second trailer is a wordless, pulse-pouding look at the four main characters, including Ventura County Sheriff’s detective Ani Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams) and motorcyle cop Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch), as they skirt the line between the law and crime.

The official press release True Detective: Season 2 plot synopsis, the June episode titles, and air dates:


A bizarre murder brings together three law-enforcement officers and a career criminal, each of whom must navigate a web of conspiracy and betrayal in the scorched landscapes of California when TRUE DETECTIVE returns for its eight-episode second season SUNDAY, JUNE 21 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), followed by other episodes debuting subsequent Sundays at the same time, exclusively on HBO.

Colin Farrell (Golden Globe winner for “In Bruges”) plays Ray Velcoro, a troubled detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. Vince Vaughn (“Wedding Crashers”) portrays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner. Rachel McAdams (“Midnight in Paris”) plays Ani Bezzerides, a sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves. Taylor Kitsch (HBO’s “The Normal Heart”) portrays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and a highway patrol motorcycle officer, running from a difficult past and the sudden glare of a scandal that never happened.

The cast also includes Kelly Reilly (“Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”) as Jordan Semyon, Frank’s wife, a former D-list actress who is a full partner in his enterprises and ambitions; Christopher James Baker (“Gotham”) as Blake Churchman; Afemo Omilami (“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”) as Police Chief Holloway; Chris Kerson (“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”) as Nails; and James Frain (HBO’s “True Blood”) as Lt.
