In the first episode of True Detective: Night Country viewers saw Rose (Fiona Shaw) call out to a figure on the ice whom she called Travis. In the second episode, the character reveals to Evangeline Navarro that she speaks to Travis, her dead lover who has visited her as a spirit since his death by suicide after choosing to walk out onto the ice rather than succumb to leukaemia. Rose said that he only comes to her from time to time and added, “Death didn’t change him. Fucker only comes when he wants something.”
