Yep. Be interesting to see where it goes. They've paced it far better than the first season, really feels like it's all building up to a big bloody mess.
Definitely to the massacre referred to in season 1, been strongly hinted many times this season. I just wonder who will survive it (well obviously Lou, but apart from him, I think maybe Peggy and not many others)
There was a massacre reference in season 1? I really haven't caught many references to S1 mainly because S1 was so forgettable and I drank a lot last summer.
Yeah. You got that Lou (Patrick Wilson) is the father of the woman cop of season 1, right? In season 1, his older version was played by Keith Carradine, and during a discussion with BB's character he talked about a case he had worked on, the Sioux Fall massacre.
Which is what this season has been building up to.
Sure, but I was expecting slightly more realistic. Not a dude getting hit on his head with a bullet, then getting shot another couple of times and still almost suffocating the cop. At that stage, it looked more Sin City than Fargo.I thought it was excellent. Great build up, a lot of tension, and the bloodbath we'd been expecting all season. The aliens just illustrated how pointless and absurd the whole chain of events was (since Peggy hit Rye back in the first episode), and I thought it worked very well. 'It's only a flying saucer Ed' by Peggy was great
I thought they might keep the massacre for the last episode, wonder how it'll all end now.
Totally agree. I enjoyed it more than the shootings and killings.I thought it worked well and they'd earned a more mellow episode to wrap things up. I definitely didn't find it boring, I'd become so invested in the characters over the course of the season that I was completely gripped, once again. Peggy's monologue about maybe being tried federally so she could serve her time in San Francisco was half hilarious, half heartbreaking. I've said it most weeks for the past few episodes, but Dunst did some truly great work on this.
I'd love it if the next few seasons had the same levels of consistency, but it's definitely set the bar very high.
That seems to be the case these days; the penultimate episode is where the real climax happens, while the last one is more for tidying up. Anyway, here's an interesting article that sheds some interesting light on the finale: http://www.hitfix.com/whats-alan-wa...finale-revealed-a-hidden-secret-from-season-1Episode 9 was the real finale.
I find it interesting, especially when it appears that those two kids he was watching became the hitmen in season 1. More a curio than anything else, but interesting nonetheless.That ending was complete shit.
They made a subtle connection with Hanzee becoming the mob boss in season 2
Is that meant to be satisfying in any way? Like... first of all there was no idea I'd ever had figured this out, and then knowing it just kinda takes a steaming dump on Hanzees character anyways. So he turns into that old bald bloke who died halfway through season 1... Rubbish!!
exactly... Hanzee is supposed to become mr tripoli isnt he'Somehow connected'? Some of the main characters from season 1 were in season 2 (younger versions), and the buildup to the big episode of season 2 was heavily referenced in season 1. The links were quite clear.
I can understand the Hanzee one which was really subtle (I hadn't noticed it), but Lou Solverson being the main character and having a daughter named Molly was quite a big one for me. The 'Sioux Falls massacre' was also quite clear, but maybe that one wasn't as noticeable as I thought.At least not for me.
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/fien-print/fargo-finale-zahn-mcclarnon-hanzees-848536Just finished series two, and both were absolutely brilliant. However:
What the feck was the UFO about? And no one seemed to really care?
Also really didn't like the ending of series two. Was too fairytale like. I thought we'd get to find out more about Hanzee and what he's up to, or we'd have a bit of an emotional ending with Betsy. Everyone lived besides the bad guys (and poor Ed).
I'm hoping series 3 will briefly go into a few things from series 2, but in all likelihood it'll be a brand new cast and storyline.
