Discuss Fargo

Anybody down to shoot the shit about possibilities here? I'm thinking that Varga and the widow Goldfarb may be in cahoots here.

I was wondering who that person could be as well. I was thinking the new Chief?

She was giving me a vibe like she wasn't one to trifle with. She's not good, but just how bad she is remains to be seen. As for the new chief, he's kind of a dick, but it seems like he'll likely just shake Gloria's hand by the time this is over and done with.

I know Sy is in a coma in the hospital, but we saw the nurse write instructions for "tomorrow" on his notes board in his room. We saw Emmit visit and then go to confess. Is it possible that Sy came to and is the one who called Nikki with the info on the second set of books and told her who to contact at the IRS? I know it's a little crazy, but it's Fargo. I'm hoping they give us something in the finale.

Well damn. You nailed it.

I did laugh a couple of times at least. When MEW stared at Emmit and said "He's a kitten now ya know, Ray, in case you were interested". And when Varga and crew were in the warehouse slinking down the halls, it was reminiscent of the remake of The Thing starring MEW back about 10 years or so. It was complete with animal noises in the background. Otherwise I thought the whole thing was a bit meh and was left feeling underwhelmed by Hawley and Company. Somebody wheedled away my money for this series, and it wasn't Varga.

I see what Hawley was trying to do. As separate observers in a quantum universe we each see our own reality. We have our own experience with definitions of our own making to explain the absurdities (like Emmit's car suddenly stopping and then starting) that we encounter.

Hawley was actually saying " I don't have to give you anything" just as reality gives us absurdist death out of nowhere with no closure, begging our own explanations. But in a world of multiple observers for this show, his effort did not finish as satisfactory entertainment. Hawley did prove himself to be an excellent capitalist though, lol.

No such luck :rofl:

Varga worked for no one.

Meeko was not taking orders from anyone just listening to music on his earbuds.

No plausible reason why Gloria had problems with electronics working for her( other than being a homage to her character on The Leftovers)

The Leland Palmer/Ray Wise otherworldy scenes were wasted on this show.

To have Emmit get a happy ending and then take a head shot in the refrigerator... :angry:

IMO, this was the worse , most meaningless season.

But in a world of multiple observers for this show, his effort did not finish as satisfactory entertainment.

I agree with this.

:thumbsup_tone2: to him because he succeeded in doing exactly what he intended.

ITA :rofl:

This is becoming a trend, to produce shows that leaves the viewers clueless just because the creators wants to be avantgarde and artistic. There's nothing wrong with that, but sometimes they just need to shut a few doors for closure.

No nothing wrong with it, but maybe they shouldn't always open so many doors in the first place when they know they aren't going to bring anything at all through them.

I felt like the producers/writers everyone said, 'hey, lets all go home right now' and just left. It's like they forgot what they were doing in the middle of it and just gave up.

The Leland Palmer/Ray Wise otherworldy scenes were wasted on this show.

On the contrary, his part was one of the MOST INTERESTING roles.

Was he the RABBI?

Only instead of coming back as a KITTEN he comes back as himself and then proceeds to HELP OUT others who are helping others?

Still don't understand the BOX with the HAND that turns it off though???

Did LELAND leave that there for GLORIA when she was in LA??

To have Emmit get a happy ending and then take a head shot in the refrigerator...

EMMIT was just as BAD as VARGA.

He STEALS their father's fortune away from his brother RAY, and then he proceeds to build up an EMPIRE with it, yet still REFUSED to pay for an ENGAGEMENT RING when he's asked to do so?

Look at that SMUG SMILE on his face after we also see it saying how he'd MADE 12 MILLION from what VARGA did to him.

In other words, there's NO PHOTO of RAY there on the FRIDGE, and EMMIT is just as PLEASED with himself as VARGA was when GLORIA tells him he's DOOMED and won't WALK AWAY from punishment the way that he thinks he will.

Same situation with EMMIT.

He also thinks he's gotten away with it, but KARMA came calling because the GREEDY EMMIT also didn't deserve a HAPPY ENDING after the way that he treated his TWIN BROTHER.

In other words, imo, the HEAD SHOT was a HAPPY ENDING.

Because of the SMUG LOOK on EMMIT's face where he also has NO REMORSE whatsoever for what's happened to RAY ... or for the way he STOLE his life away from him ... back when he took control of MOST of their father's wealth.

No, I meant they should have EXPANDED on that more- made MORE of that storyline with him. They DID NOT make use of him ENOUGH.

Me either. MAYBE it's one of those "open doors".

EMMIT was just as BAD as VARGA.

Yes he was, He was an IDIOT, but I still hated the way they did that, I wanted Nikki to to have shot him out on that highway.

In other words, there's NO PHOTO of RAY there on the FRIDGE,

Yes, I noticed that right off.

True, but THEY ALL were ROTTEN-Ray included.

In other words, imo, the HEAD SHOT was a HAPPY ENDING.

True, but the REAL HAPPY ENDING was the deaf guy getting away with ALL that money.

Yes definitely.

Was he or was he not the RABBI ? Perhaps he came back again as himself instead of as a KITTEN like RAY did so he could also help others with their troubles as well?

OPEN DOORS???


EMMIT was just as BAD as VARGA.

What did NIKKI do that got her arrested before she met RAY?


In other words, there's NO PHOTO of RAY there on the FRIDGE,

Yes, I noticed that right off.


And EMMIT also seemed PLEASED about it, maybe because RAY also reminded him of what he would be if it weren't for STEALING his father's money? Thus also a reminder that he wasn't really a SELF MADE MAN who made his own way in the world? Like TRUMP also pretends to be a SELF MADE BIG SHOT when it's also the MONEY of his father that got him started on the pathway he's on now?


and EMMIT is just as PLEASED with himself as VARGA was when GLORIA tells him he's DOOMED and won't WALK AWAY from punishment the way that he thinks he will.

Maybe, but RAY and NIKKI also seemed to be GENUINE in their LOVE for one another and the least GREEDY EMMIT could do for RAY was buy an ENGAGEMENT RING.


In other words, imo, the HEAD SHOT was a HAPPY ENDING.

True, but the REAL HAPPY ENDING was the deaf guy getting away with ALL that money.


YES, and the way he also SHOOTS RAY because of his devotion to NIKKI and what she did for him.

Was that money that belonged to VARGUS?

Or was he on his way to deliver it to the other woman who took over EMMIT'S company?

Varga was paying off Nikki not to send his records to the IRS. She did anyway and took Varga's money to boot. That was the money we saw her give to Mr. Wrench (the deaf guy).
