Fargo Season 2 Episode 10 season finale recap  SPOILERS Thankfully, Betsy Solverson didn’t die last episode, and though obviously very weak and not well, she hangs on until Lou finally makes it home. Betsy opens the episode, telling us about a dream she had of the future, which brings back Allison Tolman as grown Molly Solverson, Colin Hanks as Gus Grimly, and Keith Carradine as older Lou. Full Story

Fargo Season 2, Episode 9 recap.  SPOILERS So the Sioux Falls Massacre, this famed event we’ve been barreling toward from two different eras, goes down at the Motor Motel in Sioux Falls, and it’s a totally avoidable, completely unnecessary tragedy. But it is, like so many other things that happen on Fargo, the result of assumption and lack of forethought. Full Story

Fargo Season 2, Episode 8 recap After the hilariously garbage editing on The Walking Dead’s mid-season finale, it’s a relief to watch Fargo with its beautiful, meaningful editing that looks like it was cut by a grown-ass professional and not a preschooler with safety scissors. This episode uses the show’s split-screen format especially well, and in particularly funny ways. Full Story

Fargo Season 2, Episode 7 recap. Fargo has been renewed for a third season, which is great news, but who knows what it will be about. It’ll be another limited series, which probably means a whole new cast. Will it be about the rise of the Gerhardts in the 1950s? Or the Solversons at some midpoint between 1979 and 2006? Who knows! I’m super into a third season but right now I’m more concerned with the bodies piling up in 1979. Full Story

Fargo Season 2 Episode 6 Recap Every week I think Fargo can’t get any better, AND THEN IT DOES. I almost love this show as much as I love Justified, and I love Justified more than some members of my family. One thing we haven’t talked about yet are the recurring UFOs this season. Rye Gerhardt saw strange lights in the sky over Luverne—referencing a famous 1979 Minnesota UFO sighting Full Story

Fargo Season 2 Episode 5 recap Noreen The Morose Butcher Shop Girl is my new favorite character—her favorite holiday is Halloween and she’s latched onto Camus and his “we all die eventually” philosophy. Previously, Noreen has only been seen at the butcher shop with Ed Blomquist, parroting “okay then” like a simple-minded cockatiel, but this week Noreen steps into the spotlight. Full Story

Fargo season 2, Episode 4 recap. Story time on Fargo resumed this week, with Lou telling Peggy and Ed a story about being a soldier. Specifically, he told them about the look that mortally wounded soldiers get, in the moments before their brain processes the trauma they’ve just suffered. Full Story

Fargo Season 2, Episode 3 recap No one told a story this week on Fargo, but there was a lot of reminiscing. Peggy recalls a cousin who had a melanoma, and Lou Solverson and Ben Schmidt don’t bond over common experiences from Vietnam, and throughout the episode echoes of past meetings color the present. Full Story
