  Not the best finale, but enjoyable. The scene (no spoliers) with Malvo's leg in the cabin was (aside from the Walking Dead) the goriest thing I've seen on non-premimum cable.

SPOILERS:

I don't buy a single thing about Chazz being framed and it actually working out for Lester. Was there no trial? Did Chazz not put up any defense? How did he have no alibi?

I also feel like the ending betrayed the Molly character. Throughout the show, they go to great lengths to establish her as the one competent cop and the rightful heir to Vern's chiefhood... chiefdom... chiefness... whatever.

Anyway, she's the real cop in the show. She's smarter than Bill. She's braver than Gus. She's gutsier than her dad. So what happens in the end? Her husband essentially executes an unarmed man and he gets a free pass? It just doesn't feel true to her character.

I was truly expecting Lester to live and face justice. Though I suppose he did, after a fashion.

I was 99 percent sure that Gus was marked for death, which would add an element of tragedy to Molly's story.

Malvo should have lived. Severely wounded, left for dead, but still alive and escaping. Because you can't kill the devil. Not truly.

Did Lester die? I mean, yeah, he fell through the ice and normal human physiology would say he's not going to make it, but Molly did say "Let me know what the divers find" -- they hadn't found his body yet.

I was actually thinking Gus was going to be the hero -- until he walked into Malvo's cabin. Then he was a dead man. I also didn't think "hero" meant killing Malvo.

I disagree that Malvo should have lived. He wasn't the devil. He was just a deranged psychopath. Everybody else was just a toy for him to play with, and he would get rid of his toys when they weren't fun to play with anymore. The tapes were his trophies of successfully getting people to do his deranged psychopathic things.

I suspect this question has been asked before, but it has nothing to do with the show.

From what it looked like with the gun in Chazz sons bag, the underwear, the hammer and the SAW he had hidden in his gun case it looked like a slam dunk against Chazz. Lester made him look like a bad parent , brother and husband and the cops were after blood to get the one that got the chief. I'm suspecting that Chazzs wife took any money they had and he was probably left with a PD that could give two shiats about him.

I very much enjoyed the finale and felt they stuck the landing well. I was bummed Malvo died though, I like the idea of him getting away and just wandering off somewhere else to make mischief.

Some nagging thoughts:

Surprised Bill's adopted son storyline didn't come up again. I got the idea we (and Molly) knew the guy was a con artist but Bill only sees good in people. Maybe there's a deleted scene where Bill finds out he's been scammed after the kid steals all stuff or something. It would certainly help explain why Bill was so rattled about his worldview.

Would have liked a resolution with Stavros and Mr. Wrench.

Some parts of the show seems completely bizarre now, like Gus's next-door neighbor (married to the rabbi) stripping for him in the window. WTF was that?

I don't understand Molly's story about gloves.

Overall though these are just nitpicks. Fargo is one of my favorite movies and this show did it justice. That's impressive as hell. Hope he can come up with a compelling Season Two.

I feel like any competent defense attorney would be able to get him off. Since the Bemidji PD have a pretty good idea when the murders took place, I'd be willing to bet he has some sort of alibi for those times. At the very least, he should be in prison screaming that he was set up by Lester all the time. I just don't buy this part of the story.

Let me be clear that I don't think that Malvo was actually the devil, but the representation of the devil within the show. He's at times violent, manipulative, charming, duplicitous, and above all, at all times, corrupting. Everything we want in a devil.

Plus, there was that line in the penultimate episode about not having pie that good since the Garden of Eden, which, to me, makes it very clear what he's supposed to represent.

Don't you think that car dealer guy regretted not buying life insurance from Lester in the first episode?

Lester falling through the ice was poetic justice, since that's how the two hitmen were going to kill him earlier in the series before he managed to tase one of them and get away. Think of all of the added mayhem that resulted from him getting away from them.

I'm glad Gus killed Malvo - they didn't fall into the cliche of too much talking and giving Malvo time to defend himself - they said a few words and then Gus just unloaded on him. Also nice parallels between Gus saying he understood Malvo's riddle, while Lester didn't understand Molly's.

I also found it hard to believe that Lester's brother couldn't stay out of prison - being a family man and a professional, he almost certainly was around people who could have given him an alibi at the time of the murder. However, after the hard evidence is found at his house, and judging by his wife's reaction to all of it by beating the shiat out of him, maybe he didn't have too many friends willing to stick up for him.

The murders took place at night when most people are at home, so his alibi would be he was at home with his wife and kid. Which a lot of times doesn't hold up in court even if it is true. And then with Chaz it seemed like he spent most of his home time in his man cave by himself, so his wife wouldn't be able to verify if he had slipped out of the house, and I don't think she would have wanted to since Lester made it seem like he was banging his wife. She seemed to be more mad about the allegations that he cheated on her than the allegations that he murdered his brother's wife.

I didn't buy a hired killer running around the country killing people, but yet carrying his case of audio tapes with him.

I wonder what the TSA would have made if it?

And where were the tapes when he was arrested during his preacher stage?

Confabulat:I don't understand Molly's story about gloves.

IMO, she was being a cop.  She knew Lester was guilty.  Deep down.  But she wanted confirmation.  She wasn't going to get proof out of him, and she knew that by then, but she could trick him into revealing something.

The entire resolution of the story is that someone  else will find both pairs of gloves, and have a new pair of gloves, where otherwise, the gloves are singles, and useless.  But the man who owned the gloves gains nothing.  Not one thing.  He sacrifices his near-useless single glove, on the chance that some stranger might find some small measure of happiness.

And to a sociopath, who can't empathize with others, the story makes no sense.  That's why Lester's confused.  He has no idea why the guy would throw the second glove; it doesn't do anything for him.  And that's all the confirmation Molly needs; Lester doesn't get it, because he's a sociopath.  So she knows she's right, it's just a matter of waiting for actual proof.

Malvo helped the deaf guy escape and basically told him that he had no hard feelings towards him because they are both professional hitmen and what happened between the two of them was just business and nothing personal, and now that his bosses are dead as far as he was concerned it was over.

2014-06-18 03:39:32 PM  
I thought the ending was near perfect save for a few things...

1) Guz just blasting away at Malvo WAS STUPID...BAD ENDING for Malvo...
    I wouldn't have minded it one bit if he was going for a gun or his karambit...if he'd even said some evil, horrible stuff about killing his wife and daughter...
    I could have been ok with him shooting him like that...
    But for it to just be a helpless Malvo, leg shredded, sitting there unarmed...well, it took away some of the triumph of "getting the bad guy".
    Could and should have been worked better...

2) What happened to the car salesman? Did he get shot? The car he was driving was gone...since it was blocking the FBI car Malvo used to escape Lester's.
    Did it mention whether or not he lived? I couldn't hear all the chatter on the radio...can't recall if that was answered or not.

3) I like the bear trap, but sorta feel Lester is the last guy who'd know how to work one of those things...maybe they're not that difficult to use, I dunno...
    Or would even think to use it...just doesn't seem his style.

4) AND...after Gus shoots Malvo, in a completely against the law sorta dickmove...
    NO ONE presses charges...the FBI, who had two of their people murdered there by this guy, doesn't seem to get involved and want to know why Malvo...who, I'm sure, could have been questioned by the FBI in countless other murders...not to mention his stash of audio tapes...
    And they don't care either that he was gunned down by an idiot? A nice idiot, sure...great dad...but an idiot nonetheless, in law-enforcement, at least.
 
2014-06-18 03:42:56 PM  

Confabulat: I don't understand Molly's story about gloves.



Yeah I paused it and thought about it. Here's what I came up with.

In the story, the guy drops the first glove accidentally. But the second one was on purpose.

Molly was implying, I think, that though the first wife getting killed could have been an accident, and she didn't have definite proof he did it, with the second wife getting killed, now she had no doubt. 2 wives, now neither could be a coincidence - in short, the wives are the gloves.

Nah, that part rings true. Malvo was despised and responsible for countless deaths. No one in law enforcement would have batted an eye that he was shot unarmed and defenseless. And you better believe Gus would have gotten a medal.

I think this is it.  Lester's the kind of person who would rage and fume and stew and try to figure who was to blame for it and eventually settle on the man who bumped into him coming down the stairs and then try to figure out how to get back at that guy all the while failing to realize that it's just a stupid glove.

What's more, no one from the FBI was present when Malvo got shot. Molly was the de facto chief at that point and could have easily covered up or omitted certain details about what happened. The rest of the Bemidji would be happy to go along with it because they finally got the guy who killed the sheriff and they redeem themselves a little bit for the fark-up of arresting Chaz.

In any case, the idea that Gus would have just held him at gunpoint until Molly came to slap cuffs on him and then they all live happily ever after would have been a bigger misstep for the tone of the show and the type of character Malvo had been built up to be. As Molly herself said, "He's never gonna stop. Ya know that, dontcha?"

Especially considering they suspect he killed one cop and will soon find out, if they didn't already know, that he killed 2 FBI agents. There is know way that he would have been prosecuted.

I expected Malvo in the back of Molly's prowler and an homage to the "and it's a beautiful day" speech from the movie, but  I was satisfied with the ending.  It was tidy and justice was served.  Lester had been on thin ice for some time anyways.

The bonuses to me were the locations- I was born and I live in Calgary, so picking out all of the shooting locations was fun.  Lou's (Smokehouse Diner in Ogden), Downtown Bemidji (9th ave in Inglewood), Nygaard house #1 (Inglewood), The hotel and restaurant along Hwy 1 in Strathmore, Family Foods in the NE as the Phoenix Farms grocery, etc.  It's funny how they shot everything pointing eastward in the series (to take out downtown and the mountains), and then finally spun the cameras around in the finale for the Montana footage.  The weather was a character in Fargo and is meant to be here- If there is one saving grace to the abortion of a winter that we had, it's that it delivered in spades the bleak, desolate nature that the production needed.  The irony is that capturing that slightly-run-down midwest feel required picking out some of the oldest and least well kept neighbourhoods in the city.  It's like a 'where's waldo' of Calgary seediness.

I also had the pleasure of meeting Mr Thornton and Mr Freeman back in November during primary shooting.  Nice guys, but it was a brief visit since they were just about to sit down for dinner and I didn't want to be 'that guy'.

Another bonus for me was the brief cameo by Lorne Cardinal as Malvo's dental patient in 108.  It would have been even more awesome had he been cast as one of Bemidji's cops.  Or at least chucked in an 'alright!' as he got out of the dental chair.

MagSeven: Did we ever see him fly? He strikes me as more of a road trip guy.
Also, I doubt all the tapes were on him at all times.


Lester and his wife took an earlier flight back from Vegas.  Malvo arrived in Bemidji shortly after them, certainly not enough time to drive from NV to MN.  So yes he would have flown, and yes he would have had to have had the briefcase on him.

NeoCortex42:I expected it to play a role.  Last time Lester was going through the box of stuff, the trap was clearly visible.  I thought that the time that it was a pretty obvious Checkov's Gun.

steverockson: Remember the story Malvo told of the bear that gnawed off his own leg to escape the trap dying on his own terms?


When I saw it in the box, I thought of both of those things, but I expected 'trap' to be used more euphemistically.
