Story Arc Tah Dah!
22 May 2018 | by GunnersMateSee all my reviews

If You Build It centers on the mysterious disappearance of seemingly random items from all over town over night. Who is doing it? Why it is happening? What is the purpose of each stolen item? Where is everything going? This episode hits the ground running in explaining the answers to all of these questions and give us a big reveal regarding the much hinted at story arch of the second half of this season - and it's a ton of fun. Mystery, peril, connections to other happenings in town, and more than one "What the frac?" (in Fargo-speak) surprise along the way. It's a fun ride! But dealing the the crisis-of-the-week is not the only great ride in this episode. We have a subplot centering on Fargo's old car and his (and his car's) interactions with Larry which are laugh out loud funny. Terrific episode which promises more to come.
