      This. His first wife had it coming. His brother's fate is debatable, but he was kind of a c**t so I guess he had it coming. But using his asian wife as bait was the point of no redemption

        >His brother's fate is debatable
        Is it though? His brother did literally nothing except be more successful than him. If the brother had been shown to be a serial cheater that's looked upon as the most honest man in town then him being framed as the wife's lover to ruin his marriage would at least make some karmic sense, as it is there's nothing except Lester's seethe and him being the only opportunity he had to frame someone.

            I hate to break it to you but it is in fact not debatable if it's okay for you to frame your brother for murder just because you're seething at his success.

      i think the reason she gives her "cute little" speech to him at the end is double ended, if you listen to it close.
      Obviously he's a piece of shit, sure fine, and he was planning to kill her as soon as he picks up the coat in his basement earlier in the day.
      But her speech about "loving him" if you listen to it is actually a speech about how she was poor and she was waiting for a rich man to take her away from it all.
      She doesn't see Lester as a true love, she sees him as a cash grab, the same as his old wife would've. Just he happened to be rich now. She never made a move on him when he was weak.

      Does that justify it? not really, she's just a regular piece of shit not a bad one, but they give him an impetus for viewing her as disposable which i find interesting when they could've made her perfect and blameless.

        He was married and she made her move not long after his c**t wife was killed. He was still working for Bo Munk and had just had ex-stripper yelling about them fricking. I think she decided ‘now or never’.
        You’re not wrong about her speech but I don’t think that was the only reason she waited.

          She clearly liked him when they were coworkers, though. She just didn't make a move because he was married and then recently widowed due to murder. Did you seriously not notice how she acted with him?

          yeah ok im stretching a bit but im trying to say that would be "Lester's mindset" about her.
          Clearly she didnt deserve to get fricking domed for being a tiny bit of a golddigger. But i just found it interesting they gave the possibility of that side at all. on rewatch it added a nice added bit of depth.
          Its clear Lester is having a tiny bit of an attack of conscience as to using her as bait, and if you watch his face during that speech you can see all the selfish shit going through his head to seal the deal.
          It was well written! I liked it.

            I think she genuinely was into him because she trusted him implicitly, not that it got her anywhere.

          NTA but the moment she finally made a move on Lester is just after some prostitute accused him of tricking her into letting him screw her and then figuratively screwing her over her insurance money. Lester tells her to frick off and then Asian girl approaches him. I'm sorry but this isn't the sweet innocent Asian waifu you imagined. Not that she deserved to die mind you, that was fricked.

            you guys read way too much into it, she's literally just a tool by the writers to show lester's progression and degeneration. i also don't see how the golddigger angle makes sense at all

      Season 2 is full of ‘you go, girl’ moments and teachable lessons about muh racism. Be warned that is doesn’t really have any of the dark humor of S1.

    I still don’t have the faintest idea why he felt like annoying BBT in the elevator.

    Or the better question is why BBT didn’t fricking play along for 30 seconds to diffuse the situation rather than immediately kill the guy he was trailing considering the time and trouble he went through to have a cover story as a dentist.

    Fargo just overall felt like a film school student had just watched the original and No Country and was like “woah badass hit man!”

      What I didn't get it is why didn't Malvo just kill his target sooner? It seemed liked he killed him pretty easily in the elevator.

      Also $100,000 seems really low for 6 months of work, I mean he's an assassin who cleared out a building full of criminal mobsters with ease. Seems like $100,000 and 6 months of work is a bit of a low price for such a dangerous professional killer

        You can hire a couple crackheads off the street for a hundred bucks. Professional killers are not multimillionaires. 100,000 is extremely well paid.

        Are you moronic, his target was the brother of elevator guy who was in hiding under a secret id, he brings up 6 months cause he had to be the gays friend for 6 months before he could get close enough to meet the brother

        Maybe you should have paid attention to the show you're watching. Did you think them talking about the brother in witness protection was just some conversational fluff with no meaning?

      Because new, confident Lester couldn't handle being snubbed by Malvo, because his whole new identity was based around being someone who doesn't get pushed around anymore

    You kind of are but your're also supposed to be uneasy about his character's actions as he does worse and worse things. That's nuance.
