Unfortunate Happenstance
8 June 2017 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

Now that was the type of Fargo episode I can appreciate. One predicated on unfortunate and brutal violence, which is grounded in great directing and writing. In what is probably the best episode since the season premiere, Niiki found a new ally, Sy was nearly poisoned to death, Gloria crept closer to the truth, and Emit gave himself up. That's what you call having a plot that actually progresses, instead of stalling just for the sake of having 10 episodes. If the last two episodes provide us with the same sort of spark and intrigue, then I don't see any reason why this season can't be salvaged. You'd have to go back to season 1 & 2 to get a great fight/chase scene like we got in the snowy woods in this episode. It made me think of The Revenant, and that isn't a complement I throw around ordinarily. The other great thing this episode did was bring back Ray Wise. I don't know if he's purposefully playing a god-like character (considering who he plays in Twin Peaks), but I love every second of him on screen. Come to think of it, this whole episode felt like an homage to Twin Peaks and that type of storytelling. I loved it.
