Trivia

V.M. Varga (David Thewlis) first expresses his antisemitism in this episode. After Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) in Season 1, he is the second Fargo villain to have antisemitic sentiments. See more »

Goofs

When the sex tape is being played at Emmit's house, a camera icon, the letter A, [REC] & the battery level indicator (showing two out of three bars) are all visible on the screen. These would not be seen on the TV as this is a recording; these items only appear on the camcorder monitor screen at the time of recording and are not part of the resulting video. Additionally, when Nikki tells Ray, "Let's make a sex tape" the battery level indicator on the monitor screen of the camcorder is down to one bar, not two. See more »

For Your Eyes Only
21 May 2017 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

For the most part, I'm enjoying the departure from the usual formula of Fargo this season. There has yet to be an involvement from any sort of gang or mob, and there isn't nearly as much violence as in years past. This season is more about two brothers fighting over something stupid, and thus creating unnecessary and avoidable chaos. The Stussy brothers continue to entertain, though the highlight of this episode was Michael Stuhlbarg and David Thewlis as Sy and Varga respectively. It was another slowly paced week for the ongoing conflict at Stussys business and the case that Gloria is trying to solve. So, it isn't nearly one of my favorites of the season, but it sure ended with a bang. Varga's henchman nearly beat Nikki to death right in front of Sy's eyes. At this point, I almost think the real villain of this season is going to be Varga, and the Stussy's could potentially work together to take him down. However, knowing how Fargo usually operates, all of them will face some sort of justice in the end. As for now, I'm just hoping one of the story lines will progress heavily next week.

7.5/10
