During the elevator-kill scene, blood-spray would indicate that the backs of the victims' heads were now gone. However, at the moment the blonde is shot, the camera immediately switches to that of ceiling-view, just as the blonde slumps limply to the floor. But, as she does, it can be clearly seen that not a single drop of blood is on the back of her head. See more »


Burt Canton: She stopped putting it in her mouth soon as the ring went on her finger.
Lorne Malvo: Well, that's a national tragedy, Burt.

What are the chances
17 January 2018 | by dierregiSee all my reviews

Self-preservation is supposed to be a basic instinct. Therefore, Lester going to greet is old "pal" Malvo in the Vegas hotel is one of the stupidest plot development I have ever seen.

Besides being totally coincidental - seriously, what are the chances - nobody, not even a mororic, smug, self-satisfied ass like Lester would put his life in danger by basically hanging a target on his chest and asking Malvo to shoot.

So far I quite liked this series but this episode is just way too idiotic. The one year gap makes little sense and I am really looking forward to see Lester and Malvo wiping each other out.

PS sort of scary to see how many fans the psycho Malvo character got. Yet another master of creepines, whose fake smile is apparently fooling everybody....
