V.M. Varga: When I was a kid, whenever I had a nightmare, my mother would sit at the foot of the bed and say a little rhyme. "There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile and he found a crooked sixpence besides a crooked stile, and he bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse, and they all lived together in a little crooked house."

Besides some impressive performances and a nice cameo at the end, this was another less than stellar episode. I'm still struggling with the overall goal of this season as compared to the first two. I get it, this show is all about inevitable consequences, which is definitely what the title is referring to, but what's really all that different about this season? Also, at some point, Gloria has to catch a break. She can't be shut down for no reason by her superiors week after week. It just starts to feel like rehashed storytelling otherwise. I think the other thing that this season has failed to produce is high tension. The first few episodes captured that, but I don't think the tension has been high since the first murders. The first few seasons had a knack for developing unexpected tension during the smallest of dialogue scenes. That hasn't been the case thus far. With Wes Wrench's appearance at the end, we could finally get some sort of tie in with the actual town of Fargo, but as for now, the plot seems to have stalled.
