Trivia

As Nicki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) leaves her motel room to get ice, and the camera lingers on the closing door, the noise from the television includes the dialogue, "Oh, you're invited at six for dinner" and "I'll bring a suit of armor" playing over a laugh track. The same dialogue is said in the first episode of season 2 (Fargo: Waiting for Dutch (2015)) by Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson) and his father-in-law at the Waffle Hut while looking over the crime scene (minus the laugh track).

The time we lost our way
4 June 2017 | by lyb3-891-985883See all my reviews

After the previous episode, unsettling, dark and filled with complex psychological conflict, the script bursts out in clichés and seems rather tired and worn out. The episode doesn't really add much to the deeper, philosophical aspects of this STORY, but instead serves the most shallow.

Noah Hawley once again hinders his own creation with mediocre writing. This statement, I believe, is backed up by the fact, that all the best episodes of all 3 seasons were neither written, nor directed by him.

The climactic scene is so ridiculous and unbelievable, I am struggling to accept it. The episode is a small, but significant disappointment in comparison with this, up until this point, solid and well crafted season.
