It seems implausible that Lou Solverson had never seen the photos of Lorne Malvo in the year before he showed up in his coffee shop. Molly was obsessed with the case, and her diagram of the crimes at home and at her office both included the photos of him, including the clear headshot of him posing as preacher Frank Peterson. It seems very likely that Molly would have consulted with him on the case, especially considering that one of the reasons Gus apparently lost his job was over his supposed wrongful arrest of Frank Peterson aka Malvo.

Bill Oswalt: Look, you can't... that's just how it is, sometimes. Life. You know, you go to bed unsatisfied. They're calling the lottery numbers on the tv and you get the first few and already in your mind you're buying a jet or a fjord or whatever, but it's just not meant to be. It's just not meant to be.

Some Things are Meant to Change
21 January 2015 | by someonesmart21See all my reviews

Yes some things are meant to change, and this episode is all about the change. I'm just really amazed to see how Lester changes from being a loser to being a winner guy but through a very dark path. The episode starts where things were left and it seems that Lester is winning his evil plan, Molly still doesn't believes in all what the story is changed into and still has some suspicions but faces pressure to close the case from the authority. At after thirty minutes of the episode the timeline is shifted after one year of the events that took place and shows how's everyone is doing in its life. The later part is all about that until in the final moments we saw that Lester sees a very familiar face in an unlikely environment. Thus the episode ends with a very intriguing conclusion.
