Tonight’s installment of “Fargo” brought some much-needed fresh air into the final few weeks of this insane season, with a painfully provocative New York Times piece about revenge in law-enforcement circles and a text, texted to a cop during a traffic stop that ends in brutal violence and murder.
Shocking is too mild a word to describe what happens next, and I’ll say no more. Just last night, I was sitting in my car watching the movie trailer for “Fargo” and fantasizing about how those men would have reacted if they had seen that gun.
How’s it been this season?
Cain and Ray, I’m glad you’re still around.
Kemper, I know you’re out of your element in Detroit, but somebody’s got to stick up for me. How’s your wife doing, Thuy? That’s what I thought was going to happen when I made the decision to go “somewhere where people don’t like me.”
Bob, I agree, the father of the murdered family he pulled over deserves some type of punishment for what he did. Is that true, BTK? Or did I misunderstand you?
Kiera, you tell me I’m a “flaming pussy” when you tell me I know how you feel about losing my daughter. Is that wrong?
Megan, I can’t defend your behavior. I wouldn’t have gone off on a crazy rampage that night. I’m so sorry. I love you, but I don’t think you’re deserving of that.
Rolo, congratulations, you look really good. Come on, why don’t you look just like me, and try to connect with me like that.
MJD, enjoy that fish the way you are. It might be time for you to settle down and give up your sad streak.
Your Honor, we’re going to have a lot of legal cases to handle, and nobody here seems to be very competent.
You wouldn’t know, though, if you just took a look at the large number of really bad drivers who got their licenses taken away last week.
We got you, Justice Hanson. … Hey, I thought I stole your wife. But thank you, and on with the show.
Hey, I hear you’re writing a book, Michael. You can put your Trump book on hold until the investigation is over.
