Fargo season 2 episode 10 review: Palindrome

4 January 2016 12:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Fargo may be profligate with killing, but it never forgets the cost. Here's our review of the excellent season two finale...

2.10 Palindrome

The slow procession of Gerhardt bodies in the opening moments of this final episode acts as a reminder of the high cost that this season has levied on its characters. Although no one really left the series totally unscathed, the routing of the once-powerful local crime family should be regarded as the core tragedy of the narrative. A combination of stupidity and downright bad luck prompted Rye’s demise and the family continued to exhibit both characteristics until they were utterly destroyed. A failure to instigate a clear succession plan caused rifts between Floyd and Dodd, which only exacerbated the problems between Dodd and Bear, which would have been bad enough even without Hanzee acting as a wildcard angel of death. »
