When Milos (Oliver Platt) is taking a shower, and the water turns to blood, Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) is reading from Exodus 2, the story of Moses when he lived in Egypt. Later in the story of Exodus, God turns all the water in Egypt to blood.

The title refers to a Zen koan. Two monks are traveling together down a muddy road. They meet a beautiful young woman who is unable to cross the road. One monk lifts her across the road and the two monks return to the temple. The second monk then objects, saying that monks do not go near females, particularly if they are young and beautiful and asks why helped the girl. The first monk replies, "I left the girl by the road. Are you still carrying her?"

Title: A muddy road is the name of a Zen Buddhism parable/koan in which a monk helps carry a girl across a muddy road. Although it is forbidden for the monk to have anything to do with women, the monk's actions can be construed as an act of kindness rather than a breech of the rules. Muddy Road is one of 99 parables/koans from the Shaseki-shu (Collection of Stone and Sand), written late in the thirteenth century by the Japanese Zen teacher Muju.

Phil McCormick is finally named after being found dead two episodes ago.

Pearl Nygaard (Kelly Holden Bashar) and Vern Thurman (Shawn Doyle) have been demoted to co-stars, only appearing in flashbacks.

Billy Bob Thornton (Lorne Malvo) & Colin Hanks (Gus Grimly) also worked together on Парклэнд (2013) as Forrest Sorrels & Dr. Malcolm Perry respectively.

Martin Freeman (Lester Nygaard) & Billy Bob Thornton (Lorne Malvo) also worked together on Реальная любовь (2003) as John & The US President respectively.

When Gus (Colin Hanks) goes to tell his boss he could have picked up Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton), his boss mentions that "it's just like Sioux Falls all over again," a reference to the events in season two.

Was able to see this episode early and WOW was I impressed. Lorne Malvo is one of the best t.v characters ever. This episode literally blew my mind. So much character development occurs in this episode and we really start to see the true colours of all the characters. I truly do not know where the show will go from here but I'm sure it will be amazing. I adore this episode, without over exaggerating, it is really, really, really, REALLY spectacular. I really hope that this show continues throw seasons on end because without this show in my life it just would not be the same. I want to spend many seasons following these phenomenal characters and journeying through such a surreal and beautiful fictional universe.


So, first of all: I am from Germany. So in my following review could be some grammar mistakes. I apologize for that.

I saw the first three episodes of "Fargo" until now and i can say: Its just awesome. Really. Everything fits perfectly. The comedy, the suspense, the drama. Its not just a remake or spin-off of "Fargo" from the Coen brothers. You feel the people behind this series, really want to make this series with fresh new ideas and lot of black comedy.

But what really great at "Fargo" is: It shows me how brilliant the actor Martin Freeman REALLY is. I mean, in the "Hobbit" movies he is just there, in my opinion. In this series he shows us that he is a perfect actor.

Also the directing is really good and the music fits perfectly.

I can recommend this show to everyone and i hope they make more than just one season of this awesome series.



A Muddy Road

The inside politics between Oliver Platt and Billy Bob Thornton is so balanced out that it is scary and amusing at the same time whilst on the other side Colin Hanks and Allison Tolman are finally teamed up in this third episode of which they were building up from the first one.

Martin Freeman is great again as the awkward, weak Lester. Scenes with him in them are a joy to watch, as Malvo's scenes continue to be. The way he drags off a man by his tie without a care in the world, without even a care about being caught on CCTV, shows just how much of a badass guy he is. Speaking of Malvo, his blackmail plan is a stroke of genius. Instead of killing the blackmailer, he takes over the plan himself! And when he causes blood to flow out of the shower, that is a moment that perfectly sums up his character. He does what he wants for his own amusement and he always gets away with it. For now, anyway. No one's perfect, and with such a careless attitude his luck is bound to run out eventually.

Other than that, Molly's investigation continues, showing how sharp she is compared to everyone else. Worst thing for her is no one is taking her seriously, even after Lester's reaction to seeing Lorne on CCTV. Although I think I saw a suspicion finally appear on the boss's face. The two hitmen are also trying to find the killer of Sam Hess, which brings a hilariously awkward confrontation with Lester which is interrupted by Molly.

There's a hell of detail put into the many plot lines, although for the time being the main plot threads are only advancing slowly. That's okay though given how entertaining this show is to watch. Even if nothing major happened in an episode it'd still be better than most TV.


Lorne is crazier than ever. He grabs and accountant, pulls him out of his building by his necktie as everyone looks on. His face is now on security footage. Meanwhile, Lester continues to have a bullet in his wrist and, while at work, the guys that dumped a man in an ice fishing hole show up. They are threatening, but he has no idea why they are there. Molly shows up and everything is at a standstill for a while. Lester knows that he is in trouble from outside forces. Meanwhile, Gus Grimley, the Duluth cop, is filled with guilt for letting Lorne go after a traffic stop. Lorne threatened him and he backed off to save his skin. When his superiors hear of this, they are ready to throw him to the wolves. He goes to Bemidji to confess his mistake and meets Molly there. Lorne has taken over the blackmailing of the grocery store magnate. Instead of aiding him, he now becomes his tormentor and his worst enemy. There are some great scenes. Hess's widow is visited by Lester because Hess had been insured. Two of my favorite characters are Hess's sons, a couple of obnoxious idiots. There is a great scene where they are playing with crossbows while the widow comes on to Lester. This has got to be one of the most creative shows ever on television.
