Lester has an unexpected encounter, Malvo changes course, and a new investigation leads Molly down a familiar path.
Did You Know?
Lester (Martin Freeman
) solves the riddle of the farmer who has a fox, a rabbit and a cabbage, and must get all three across the river, but can only carry two at a time. A nearly identical puzzle was solved by his character Tim Canterbury in The Office
(2001) episode The Office: Training
(2001). See more
When Agents Pepper and Budge are discovering the connection between Malvo's ambush in Fargo and Officer Solverson's phone messages to the FBI, Pepper takes the note from Budge and asks the other agent, "Where is Bemidji?" Given that Agents Pepper and Budge have likely been stationed in Fargo, North Dakota, for at least six months, one might assume that neither of them would need to ask where Bemidji, Minnesota, is located as it's only a two-hour drive due east. However, Bemidji only has a small population of 15,000 people, hardly an urban metropolis, and it has no federal law enforcement connections. The agents have been purposely stuck in the file room as punishment and were not given any assignments that would have permitted travel. It's conceivable that while they may have heard the name Bemidji, they did not know exactly where it was. See more

Well, that's a national tragedy, Burt.
