Did You Know?


The title, "Aporia," is ancient Greek and means "an impasse, difficult of passing, lack of resources, puzzlement." It denotes in philosophy a philosophical puzzle or state of puzzlement, and in rhetoric, a useful expression of doubt. It refers to Emmit's (Ewan McGregor) situation with Varga (David Thewlis); the selling of one's soul to the devil himself. See more »


Gloria Burgle: Got married straight out of high school to a guy I knew since fifth grade summer camp. Summer wedding. Guests were mostly mosquitoes. We had a baby boy, then a toddler, now a teen. Last year, my husband phones me at work, tells me he's got a boyfriend named Dale. Says they're moving in together. Says he's sorry. He loves me, but not like that. "What else is there?" I say. You think the world is something, then it turns out to be something else.

This felt like a classic Fargo episode. Just when you think everything is going to wrap up and end well, they pull the rug out from under you. While this wasn't the best episode of the season (I think we can all agree that was last week), it certainly contained some unexpected goodies all around. Emmitt tried his hardest to confess his crimes, Varga kept plotting away, Nikki took the upper hand in blackmailing Varga, and Gloria contemplated her existence. The plot is finally starting to unravel in ways that I didn't expect, yet always hoped. Although it's more than tiresome watching Gloria get shut down by the Sheriff and Varga's evil scheme, I think the reward will be even more sweetened once she finally does win out next week (that is, assuming she does get her way). The same goes for Nikki, who should by all means by an unlikable antagonist in this show, but there's something about Winstead's performance here that makes her so appealing. It also doesn't hurt that she has one of the cooler Fargo characters of all time assisting her, Mr. Wrench. So, in all, it was a great episode even with all of the frustrating setbacks the characters faced. Here's to a great finale!
