‘Fargo’ Episode 7: Who Shaves The Barber?

Lester, Lester, Lester — you brilliant sociopath.

The frame-up set forth in last week’s episode by Lester toward his brother seems to have gone off without a hitch. It was convincing enough for Chief Bill Oswalt (duh!) and the rest of the Bemidji Police Department. Except, as we saw at the end, a recuperating Molly Molly Solverson.

This episode we see Lester basically with his confidence back. A confidence that is rooted in his criminal ways. He’s acting like he’s now the smartest and cleverest guy in the room. His brother is in jail for crimes he committed and that doesn’t seem to bother him. Lester is, as we saw in the episode, a horrible person.

And we have Malvo on the hunt for the people in Fargo who tried to have him whacked. He goes to Reno, Nev. to confront his (I guess) superior about who in Fargo would try to put a hit out on him.

Which brings us to the awesome since. We see Malvo, now in Fargo, go into a building being monitored (poorly) by FBI agents played by Key and Peele. We don’t see anything that’s happening inside, bu we hear Malvo going floor to floor shooting everything and everybody there. His revenge was brutal.


* It was a tornado that caused the fish to fall from the sky from last week’s episode.

* It doesn’t seem to take Malvo too long to dart from Duluth to Reno then to Fargo.

* Key and Peele’s conversation about fast food was funny.

* In less than 2-minutes, Malvo topped the previous murder record of the show in the shoot-up in Fargo.
