Well I think I can speak for a ton of people in saying that this was one of the best seasons of television in history, and I firmly believe that. Everything from the opening music for every episode, to the unforgettable performances, to the uniquely stylistic directing, and even the WTF moments like last week's UFO sighting, this has been one helluva run for Fargo.

This episode was relatively uneventful, although it was very haunting seeing the opening shot of all the characters who have died this season and wonder who may be next. There weren't many players left, but of those who were alive, they kept tonight entertaining. We actually finally got a little bit more of Molly's mindset through her predictions of her future self. It was nice seeing some of season 1's cast return like Allison Tolman, Colin Hanks, Joey King, and Keith Carradine, which got me thinking. Where will this show go next? Season 3 is confirmed, but do we go forward or backwards? Either way, I'm in.

The Blumquists made their final run for it and ironically ended up in a butcher shop, where Ed died, further pushing Peggy into madness. I would have liked to see exactly where she ended up, but her scene with Lou in the cop car was just enough to see that there's no way she was getting out of this mess. After Hanzee went all Terminator on the Blumquists, he got a new identity and seemingly, a new start. Again, it's kind of a shame we didn't get more insight into Hanzee's motivations or back-story, but I think ultimately, that may have served his character for the best.

Other than that, not a ton happened, but that didn't prevent the episode from being really well done. It was great hearing the fantastic score/theme that season 1 used over the course of tonight's episode. I also really loved that the writers never made this season specifically about any particular character(s). Martin Freeman was great last season but I think season 1's problems lie with his character. This season did such a nice job at balancing every one of the main characters without making any of them overpower the other. I loved this season.
