True Detective season 2 episode 2
True Detective season 2 airs every Sunday on HBO. Fans have been wondering if Ray was killed in the shoot-out HBO

True Detective season 2 delivered a huge shocker in episode 2 when Ray (Colin Farrell) was shot in the final scene by a man wearing a blackbird mask.

Loyal fans of the show have been wondering if the police officer is dead. However, the synopsis of episode 3 reveals that he is indeed alive.

The official synopsis of the next episode titled Maybe Tomorrow reads: "Ani lets Ray know she's in charge after he goes rogue on the investigation, even though he stumbles on crucial evidence that takes the case in a new direction. Meanwhile, Frank meets with his former associates in the criminal underworld, but they make it clear they're not taking orders from him anymore; and Paul hits the streets to see if Caspere's face rings a bell."

Ray survives the fatal attack, but Ani takes charge of Caspere's murder investigation. She links the strange murder with the city planner's fascination with prostitutes.

In the second episode she scours through the escort businesses in the fictional town Vinci, California, and asks her men to check with each and every prostitute to find any clue related to the gruesome crime.

It appears she has taken the investigation personally, as this might have a connection with her dark past.

The episode gives a brief idea about her rough childhood and how she crosses over to greener pastures. She had been in a children's home with four other children, two of whom committed suicide while the two others went to jail.

HBO's crime thriller is slowly gearing towards an interesting and complicated plot which will further solidify the presence of Rachel McAdams' character Ani.

Meanwhile, former crime lord Frank Seymon (Vince Vaughn) learns that Caspere wasted millions of dollars meant for a rail project. Seymon needs to know the answers to several questions as his position in the underworld is under threat.

Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch,) on the other hand, is searching through the streets of Vinci for some clue related to Caspere's dark world and the reason behind his merciless killing.
