Set in 2010, the third installment of Fargo centers on Emmit Stussy and his slightly younger brother Ray (Ewan McGregor in dual roles). Emmit, the “Parking Lot King of Minnesota,” is a handsome, self-made real estate mogul with a perfect family – a real American success story. His slightly younger brother Ray is more of a cautionary tale. Wilted from a lifetime of living in Emmit’s shadow, Ray is a balding, pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt – and he blames his brother.

The only bright spot in Ray’s life is the love of a not-so-good woman, Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), one of his parolees. Nikki has brains, beauty and a deep and abiding passion for competitive bridge. She decides to help Ray turn his fortunes around, by essentially stealing back his good karma. Unsurprisingly, things quickly get out of hand and petty theft leads to murder. When the mayhem crosses county lines, Eden Valley Police Chief Gloria Burgle (Carrie Coon), a newly divorced mother, is called upon to investigate. Normally steady and imperturbable, Gloria is shaken when the case takes an unexpectedly personal turn.

The season premieres tonight at 10pm EDT on FX

I dont know any of this cast, im having trouble even mentally placing ewon mcfucker. Who's carrie coon and whats her other show she stars in? It says she plays a newly divorced mother. I hate single moms, theyre all single for a good reason.

I'm still hyped, but last year had way more names I knew. Bruce Campbell, even if he was very limitted. Ted Danson was amazing. Wasn't the cop the guy from Insidious? And the chick from Spider-Man gave a shockingly unique performance.

Do you guys think that the fact that this guy is the "parking lot king of minnesota" is a callback to Fargo, the movie? I would guess so because it's some kind of reverence and high position, but in such a mundane field. Kinda like the guy in season 1 was the grocery king or whatever.
But yeah in season 1, I can't remember which part, but they end up meeting at a "Gustafson parking garage" and that was clearly a reference to the movie.

Whoa nice. I didn't even think about this show coming back.

I did NOT like season 2 very much at all. It had some nice things of course, but it paled in comparison to the first season.

I'm just weird though, cause I LOVED True Detective season 2 while most were not into it.

The premise for this season sounds way better, though. I can't wait.

In s2 the aliens were obvious to identify as such, what you say about s1 is only your theory. Nothing makes it seem the creators deliberately made it seem that way. That an evil man is the evil personified isn't much of a stretch but let's not Room 237 it, please.

The Coen brothers are pretty well known for using symbolism like that. I honestly think he's an indirect symbol for satan.
If you think about it more, it seems more real.
The first meeting with Lorne Malvo, Lorne is basically the devil on Lester's shoulder. Talking about how fucked up it was that Sam Hess still bullies him like that. How he's such a little bitch for taking that and not acting like a man. It's almost like an other part of his conscience.
Then he basically makes a deal with the devil. He doesn't actually make a verbal contract, but it's as if the devil is punishing him for allowing those dark thoughts into his head.
Then he has to face the consequences and weave a tale of lies as bodies of loved ones and strangers alike pile up around him because he invited the evil into his life.
Years later after he's gotten away with it all by adding deception to evil in many ways, he encounters the devil again. "Lester are you sure you want this" of course he accepts, because he's done so well since the first encounter, he thinks that not even the devil can touch him. Of course that all ends up with him not being so lucky after he invites the evil back into his life for a second time.
This almost sounds like some kind of old testament story. It could easily be juxtaposed to that time period and pass as a bible story.

Pretty good premiere. Maurice dun goofed in going to the wrong address and killing Gloria's dad. Him getting squashed to death by that air conditioning unit was just the kind of death that makes Fargo what it is. Ray and Nikki are in some real deep shit now especially once they connect Maurice's death to Gloria's dad's. The stuff with Emmit and that businessman that now owns his company could get interesting now that he has to basically work for him. Could be a great season especially for its cast.

Did you all catch the Cthulu reference? Otherwise a standard opener, but the last 10 minutes or so were the best thing about the entire episode. I think it has potential.
Am I supposed to know who that policewoman's husband is that picked up the boy? I had the feeling it was presented as some kind of reveal, but maybe I'm mistaken.
Interested to see how they weave the opening scene into the story or if it's just a framing device.

So ep 2

How fucking dumb is the Lawyer? He backs into someones car in broad daylight in front of a building of witnesses in his own vehicle after appearing visibly aggressive inside the building moment prior. Then he fucks up and clips that waitress' car. There has to be follow up for that in a later episode right? I could understand if the parole officer doesn't file a lawsuit because he's kind'a dim and he probably doesn't want any cop attention but that waitress would definitely sue this easily identifiable culprit right?

Anyway, what do you all think the supernatural motif will be this season? We've done Satan and Aliens already, I'm betting this season is going to be KGB style psy-ops, some kind of leftover spy shit.

Is anyone disappointed by the musical themes in this season?
I loved the orchestras of the 1st and 2nd but they seemed to have done away with em this time around, save for the opening (which was pure gold)

Where is my wrench and numbers bass drum theme, my gerhardt upright bass and strings? I loved that about the series but they seemed to have done away with it for edgy shit music.

Watched last week's episode. lol at Nikki using her tampon to send a message to Emmit. The Parking Lot King is gonna be in for more than he's bargained for with his deal with the devil in VM. He's such a great villain and the ending of him giving his condolonces to Emmit for his attorney's death was cold but with a tinge of dark humor to it. Also Ray and Sy's confrontation at the restaurant and then Sy hitting his car was pretty funny.

Also am I the only one that doesn't really care about the show's supernatural undertones and stuff? Like with Malvo being the devil and those aliens last season. I mean if Gloria is some sort of spirit or something since she can't open automatic doors, I dunno how'd they explain it. Maybe the connection with her stepfather or something.

Yeah the musical score is different but the soundtrack still kinda fits.

Excellent episode tonight. Strange as well. Really trippy and enchanting.
I got a boner when I saw Ray Wise make an appearance, and then an other boner when I saw Rob McElhenney
I feel like the new musical theme has kinda settled in.
A lot of this episode reminded me of some of the episodes of Legion. Then I remembered that FX recycles a lot of their writers and directors. I didn't realize that the major writer (Noah Hawley) worked on both Legion and Fargo. You can kinda see a bit of an evolution for him, when you see how well the style of Legion worked out and then it bleeding over into Fargo a bit. I really dig it.
I gotta say that I think out of all TV producers, FX puts out the best quality stuff.

Yah, really felt like being in a dream this ep. Hawley is the best directing guy in TV right now, brings the best visual directing since Mad Men, even if the style is totally different from Mad Men. MM was more like Kubric directing where there were hidden messages intended with everything to set dressing to camera angles. This Hawley style is more about just nailing the max-trippy aesthetic and leaving viewers feeling like they dropped acid.

Finally watched last week's episode. It was cool seeing Fred Melamed, Ray Wise and Rob McElhenney, who should have showed Gloria his cultivated mass and taken home Ray Wise's character, guest star on the episode and the animated scenes. Planet Why seems like something like Wall E but more dark and dystopian. I mean Gloria investigating her stepfather's murder and looking into his past wasn't so much as to figure out who murdered him but more so for the audience to better understand who Thaddeus was before she knew him. But now the attention has been turned to the Stussys given that Maurice, who is Ray's parolee, is dead and she'll connect the dots and zone in on them.

Good episode. The director used some excellent tricks to make that essentially uneventful episode interesting and fun to watch.
With the way the po pos are putting pieces together already it's hard to imagine how the Stussy brothers are gonna make it through 10 episodes. I can't wait to find out.
Also, prediction. I can feel it: Sy is gonna die a brave, possibly brutal death sacrificing himself for his boss. He's got that strong loyalty and it just seems perfect for him to go like a martyr that way.

It's nothing quite like the movie.. yet it is. It's so obtuse and each season has its but its not a straight sequential narrative to the movie. It's frankly brilliant and unlike any show or movie series that I have seen (if anyone has anything at all like this, I want to hear about it)

Now, this show gets the fucking soundtrack down for pat, along with the setting and characters. Being from Alberta, I love to see all the scenery I grew up in being used as a stand in for Minnesota. (Sioux Falls/ Luverne was Lethbridge & Fort Macleod, Season 1 & 3 was filmed in Calgary)

On a side note:
I was disappointed with how they portrayed Duluth in the first Season, when I passed through it seemed to be quite the port city with a very low skyline, and the very atypical and vertical skyline of Calgary really took away my immersion. They really could have benefited from using CGI and Lethbridge in that case or just some good ole on location filming.

This season started out slow, but my god I think I like it more than season 2. (season 1 is my favourite still) but that's getting challenged. The more screen time Varga gets the more I love the show.

Sad to say I agree. The cop is so dumb that he comes off as a criminal trying to cover up his involvement, only we know he isnt involved in this so he's just retarded. I also hated the beatdown at the end. It was set up like she was killed and just a cop-out that they just beat the shit out of her. If it was just a brutal beatdown, youd think the Jew (sorry i forget his name and they kept calling him the Jew this ep) would have gone to her side after to be like 'oh shit nigga sorry'. It was all just overly dramatic for the sake of duping TV viewers.

One funny part was when they started yelling FUCK YOU over the phone. I love phone conversations gone bad, and have seen people on buses start flipping out similarly before.

As for the debate on a supernatural element, someone said time travel. Just throwing it out there that I think time travel was last seasons theme and that the aliens were actually human observers from the future. The stuff the narrator says in the s02 finale hints at it. The narrator in fact was on board what we saw as UFOs. The made up language of Ted Danson ties in somehow, but i haven't pieced it together fully.

I've got a half-assed theory for the supernatural thing this season... VM Varga is a vampire. Think about it. he has shitty teeth, and can intimidate people quite easily. He eats and immediately throws up, sure he might be bulimic but that's kinda outta nowhere. Now if he missed the taste of food but isn't able to hold it down purging would be a pre-emptive act. As for the sun... it's not very sunny in the show. In fact, it's almost always overcast. I had more evidence to back up this lame theory, but drugs and alcohol have done a number on me.

Yeah, it was about time somebody took Varga down a notch. I was surprised he had no comeback for that. The man clearly loves telling utilitarian stories, whether they're true or not. Also, I thought the brief bit with him doing... something... with his gums and teeth was interesting. That look of surprise and rodent-like fear when the cops come in, like he knew it was time to put on his game face. Swish the blood out and swallow. Time for war. I guess the flossing or whatever he was doing must be related to his apparent bulimia. Yeah I like that character a lot.

I think the bloody gums thing further confirms that one dudes theory about Varga being a vampire. Ever since he mentioned it, I've been puzzling it over and all the pieces seem to fit. His stomach can't digest human food. He was physically there for all those "true stories" he told. He moved somewhere eternally cloudy. He has creepy human slaves who follow his footsteps like loyal puppies. He couldn't take over the company by force, he needed to be invited in! And now he is sucking their souls. Basically. When he rants about the fine line between lie and reality, he is tongue and cheeck saying "vampires dont exist only because you tell yourself they dont, just like you tell yourself we landed on the moon." You'll keep telling yourself there's no such thing as vampires while he is sucking your blood right to your face and pissing in your Jew friends coffee cup.

That's a pretty good way of looking at it. He does have seemingly supernatural charisma, or rather he manipulates people like it's nothing. And he sure as hell fits the stereotype of the eccentric vampire baron who descends from his mountain castle to prey upon the hapless villagers. I'm pretty sure bad things will continue to happen to (and around) the people he's using, even if they do end up fantastically wealthy (and certainly still his subordinate pawns).

I was thinking about this quite a bit. Here's my take on it. It's his MO. The bulimia is part of his whole perspective towards life. He consumes the world, but he does not carry it with him because he doesn't need or want to. He uses it for his purposes, then purges it out. He's very spartan. The lecture he gave Emmit about wearing $200 suits. It all reminds me of, I think it was in the first episode this season, where Emmit wants to pay him back and Vargo tells him, "No, you keep it." Totally disinterested, as if a child were offering him a piece of garbage they found. He doesn't wear his wealth; he uses it. Just like how he uses people.
So yeah, a glutton and very vain. That's what I think anyway.

The bowling alley scene was pretty great. It reminded me of the scenes in The Big Lebowski, except the guy encountered here was more than just a commentator. I was glad to see Ray Wise again and apparently he's some kind of oracle/entity of divine intervention. He's either divine or a mortal implement of divinity.
When Sy was saying the coffee was bitter, I was lol'ing because I thought that Varga just made him come in, drink his dick coffee, then leave. But it was actually much more brutal than that.

That whole episode was just great, and weird in such a perfect way. I hope we get more of that.

I gotta preface this by saying that my brain's a little fucky, being sober and all, so take my post with a grain of salt. I'll rewatch the episode later and revisit my thoughts on it. That said...

Was this a fucking Ozymandias tier episode of television, or what? I feel like I could gush about every single second of it, but I'll try to keep it to the best of the best.
~All of the framing of the scenes with Gloria and Emmit in interrogation, with the reflections stretching out behind them, then later with Gloria in the foreground and Emmit just a blur behind her were beautiful.
~Nikki going final form on Varga, god damn.
~That they captured how someone can feel like they don't even exist, that nothing they do matters, and how fragile that emptyness is, that all it takes is one person to recognize you for you to know that you're not invisible. I'd wager I'm not the only person here who understands how that feels; I fucking choked up when the faucet came on for Gloria.
~"The problem isn't that evil exists in the world, it's that there's good... otherwise, who cares?"

I wasn't expecting this episode to top the last one, but god damn, I think it did.

Oh, shit no, it's not -better- than Ozymandias. I just think it's in the same "putting the vast majority of television to shame" tier. On second thought, Ozymandias was in whatever tier is higher than that lol
I haven't rewatched it yet, and I never rewatched last week's episode either, so I'm going to watch them both again and see if I change my opinion. (By the way, did anyone else think that Emmit quoting that "the devil's greatest lie was convincing the world he doesn't exist" was a wink to the debate of whether or not Malvo was Satan? I'm going to imagine that that's what it was, even though I don't really believe it.)

Uneventful episode but good developments.
The cinematography and directing this season has been so good that there never really is a dull moment. Like someone else mentioned, but especially in the last two episodes, the camera work and framing etc has all been so pro and it always seems so perfect. Especially in this episode and going back to episode 3 with the trip to LA and the robot, the directors have done an excellent job of portraying a feeling and putting you in the story. I'm sure everyone can relate to what Gloria said in the bar in some way.
The only disappointment of this episode was that I was really hoping for a kiss between the two lady cops.

It's really nice that this and Better Call Saul are running at the great time. I get two hours of watching pros of directing and cinematography make beautiful work.

Finally got around to watching this and even though I've found this season to be extremely hit or miss leaning towards miss a lot of the time, that was one of the single best episodes of Fargo from any season.

Started in an interrogation room ended in an interrogation room. Sure, one was a German interrogating someone, the other an American. Both in defense of their country. The ending is a little more personal, but perhaps it sheds some light on that intro scene. Was the guy at the beginning a real enemy and not some poor case of mistaken identity? Was the interrogator truly the bad guy? Now transfer those questions to the end and vice versa and maybe you've got some explanation.

Ever since you pointed it out, I started watching for clues and everything kinda fit. You called it before actual supernatural events even occured like meeting the kitty. The bowling alley guy gave the hot chick a chance to live and kill Varga. Unfortunately, she went after the wrong evil-doer, the human rather than the parasitic demon that the Bowling Alley guy actually wanted dead. She went for personal satisfaction rather than actually fighting evil and she became evil for it and had to die (for karmic reasons). If she had targeted Varga, the Bowlers League would have kept her alive somehow.

The final scene was beautiful.
Great season. It was quite unpredictable. I kinda knew all along that Varga was gonna get off scott free, that was kinda a general theme. That if you have enough money and the knowhow, you can get yourself in and out of any situation. But all of the events and the arcs of all the characters were pretty much all unpredictable.
It was really cool to see the deaf dude again. He's a really interesting character. A true badass.
VM Varga was a great villain. A kinda a-typical badass nihilistic vulture. More than a vulture though, he's meticulous and ruthless in the way he picks apart his prey.
I hear that the Coen brothers are pretty much out of ideas for an other season. I hope they sit on it for a year or so, I'm sure that if they just give it some time I bet they can come up with an other season. But if not, I think this was a great end to the series.
Also, did the Russian guy die? I was high when I watched the last couple episodes so I don't remember what happened to him, I thought he just stumbled off out of the woods bleeding? I guess that Ray Wise's character banished him to hell or some shit?
Also, it's kinda funny that Ray Wise's character gave Nikki that phrase to say when she knew she was destroying evil, and it turns out it was just poor old Emmitt who definitely wasn't the evil. Then she ends up killing a cop who was just in the wrong place. Ironic.

There's still a lot to interpret with the symbolism of it all too.

Noah Hawley is doing a new FX show teamed up with Robert Kirkman (walking dead comic scribe) and the Russo Brothers (Captain America: Winter Soldier

Sounds good, but Fargo season 4 aint gonna air for fucking years and years at the rate Hawley is making new shows.

Yeah he said 3 years but this prob just turned it into 5.

Also, Varga is a vampire, fuck the haters. I'm shocked the rest of the internet hasn't caught on. I googled "fargo varga vampire" and the only result was one sole reddick post where someone floated the theory and was called a retard (their post was before the white lodge ep tho which added waaaay more evidence). If you google "fargo malvo satan" there are millions of results. How are we the only place to have cracked this mystery?

The myth that vampires can't be photographed only applied to flash photography, that is outdated info, learn 2 occult. Any smart phone or security camera can film them.

Actually what I read was that classic photography could capture a vampire because they use silver in the process of making pictures on film. Supposedly you can only see a vampire's reflection in silver. But a digital camera basically just uses reflections off of lenses so in that case it wouldn't work.

Great season. The first couple of episodes were a drag, but it picks up and gets really good by the end. Was really cool to see Mr. Wrench be a BAMF again.

Also, Varga was an awesome Malvo-tier antagonist, but stop with this retarded "vampire" bullshit. Dude walks around in broad daylight, shows up on cameras, and literally has no fangs. It's a dumb theory and you're dumb for thinking it. You don't have to resort to tortured logic so you can shoehorn in a baseless supernatural gimmick to his character.

I guess you totally missed the bowling alley scene?

That wasn't symbolism. That was overt supernatural shit. The bowling alley employees totally ignored the fact that Nikki was apparently bleeding out, and had chains hanging from her wrists. It was some kind of waiting room or method of judgement. Mr Marrane (Sam Wise's character) was a tool of divine intervention (which it was clearly stated) and judged them to be good and gave them his blessing to fight evil (Varga). He also judged the Russian and dealt with him which is why we didn't see him again, and he mentioned him in the scene and that he was gonna take care of him. There was the mystical Christian stuff that clearly implied he was some kind of demon or something. They clearly didn't wanna go full sci-fi or whatever but it's pretty clear that he was some kind of evil beast.
I don't think I agree with the vampire thing, I think this is a pretty clear biblical thing. It's not even symbolic, that's clearly what they're talking about. I think they just wanted to keep it opaque because if they had Varga transform into a demon and eat the lady cop in the final scene it would have been pretty stupid.

I never said there isn't overt supernatural shit in the show dingus. I said Varga is not a vampire and there's nothing explicitly supernatural about anything he does. Full stop.

Okay Gristle

Actually now that I think about it, an alternate ending where he sucks all the lady cop's blood then turns into a bat and flies off into the night would be pretty badass.

uhh when does he? Pretty sure we haven't seen the sun except for the LA episode

I mean I don't really believe that Varga is literally a vampire, just like I don't believe Malvo is literally the devil, but you're loopy if you're denying that the symbolism is there

Nigga, just cause the killed by sunlight thing wasn't established until Nosferatu in 1922, old vampire folktales have had aversion to or weakened by sunlight for hundred of years. It's not a Hollywood thing. Either you're defining vampire so broadly that it could apply to literally any malevolent fuck in the show, or you admit that the vampire theory has no basis.

In the picture you replied to for one. Also numerous sunlit office scenes. Walking into the warehouse. Hanging around the brother's house. Going from scene to scene during the day. Etc.

Also if people are so desperate to have a supernatural monsters in this season, the obvious choice would be werewolves. Which has far more of a symbolic basis than fucking vampires. Varga is literally described as a wolf, and the Russian in his crew walks around with one on his head and howls while hunting down people in the woods. That's far more explicit than any non-existent vampire connection that requires you to literally ignore pretty every vampire trope from the last 100 years.

That's a promo buddy. In the show they're clearly in a place that's dimly lit 24 hours a day

Werewolves? What kind of nonsense is that? Just because Yuri wears a wolf on his head? This show is a little more thematically focused than that

Minnesota is filmed as a grey, cloudy shithole. News at 11. Doesn't change the fact that he's clearly out and about in daytime, and has no problem walking around outside when the sun is up, whereas any traditional vampire would either be significantly weakened, and/or hiding under an umbrella covered in layers of SPF 100 in case the sky cleared. There's still zero evidence to support a stupid literal vampire theory that no one anywhere else on the internet is entertaining. The only remotely vampiric thing about him is just related to the standard greedy, vulture capitalist gangster archetype, which is a connection that can just as easily be applied to pretty much any gangster from the last three seasons too. Also besides Yuri's wolfhat, there's also several scenes where wolf imagery is directly superimposed over Varga, which is a far more explicit connection than whatever bullshit Twilight slashfic meme everyone is trying to force. I'm not saying Varga and his crew are werewolves either, that's still fucking stupid. I'm saying if you wanted to make a stupid monster argument, it's a better one than vampires.

The vampire works more thematically, the way he sucked off the companies lifeblood and they couldn't get rid of him after inviting him in. Maybe his minion with the wolf outfit was a skinwalker, vampire's don't have fellow vampires as their minions, they have brainwashed humans or other lower supernatural beings. I always thought that asian headphones guy was supposed to be a literal Human Slave with how emotionless he seemed, but the way he shot Varga a look of betrayal before death made me think he had some emotion in there.
Maybe he isn't a vampire specifically but he was meant as some kind of demon. Part of me thinks that the girl who couldnt use technology was connected to it, but lately I think her problems might be related to stuff from other seasons and might make sense later. Maybe related to season 2s aliens, which I still don't think are actual aliens but humans messing with time travel. If anything, I think the old man who wrote sci-fo travelled back in time with one of season 2's UFOs, then lived to be the old man of season 3, and somehow his time travelling residual effects made that one girl unable to be sensed by electricity. Once he was dead a while and she wasnt constantly around him getting his future-juice, she started being able to use soap dispensers again.

BTW, that fact that he's bulimic points more toward vampirism than lycanthropy. Werewolves eat any kinda meat (and/or veggies), but multiple vampire mythos involves the inability to hold down people food. Varga being a vamp still makes more sense than rando aliens in season 2. He may not have fangs or be burned alive by the sun and etc., but he feeds off others (albeit not off their literal lifeblood). Look in your heart, you know it to be true.

BTW... if Hawley writes this shit into future seasons, I demand royalties. Brotha gots to get paid!

Dude's been carrying that anger around since 2008 for god's sake, even the final movie was 5 years ago now
