Fargo just dropped the mic on all of television with its epic finale and I still cannot get over that crazy connection to season one. You really had to pay attention to some very minor details in both seasons to put it all together but it was absolutely stunning how the writers were able to connect the events of this season with the first one. This was absolutely brilliant writing on par with the likes of Breaking Bad. Further, the acting was phenomenal and pretty much every single person involved with this show deserves an Emmy for their performance. It is actually impossible to pick just one person but if I had to, Kirsten Dunst completely slayed everything with her performance as Peggy Blumquist. It was that damn good.
Everyone’s stories were wrapped up nicely in Palindrome and every single character got the fate that they deserved. Milligan, on his quest for power, ended up in a nine to five job. Peggy lost her hubby in her quest for self actualization. Hanzee obtained a new life, and face, and built an empire. And the Solversons got the happy ending they deserved with Betsy spending her final days with the people she loved the most.
I have no idea what to do with myself now that this epic season is over. It was hands down one of the best stories I have had the pleasure of witnessing and I think a lot of you will agree that Fargo is one of the best, if not THE best, series on TV. Enjoy the review, fellow Fargoites!
