    Exciting episode, Malvo shows how mean and sneaky he is when he distracts the cops by manipulating them to shoot the personal trainer! Lester also shows his sneakiness by framing his brother for the murders although I'm still unsure why he put a gun in the kids shootout in a snowstorm ends in tragedy when Gus accidently shoots Molly (because he's both stupid and Will she survive? I'm struggling to understand the fish from the sky, this can't be Malvo's doing unless he has a supernatural aspect to his character, I'm really interested to find out!moreless

    A bit of a dull episode. The shooting and punishment of the trainer was entertaining, as was the chaos in the snowy conditions, but as a whole I found it a little boring at points.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Title: Buridan's Ass refers to the name of a Medieval paradox concerning the logic of rationality and freewill. It's a hypothetical dilemma in which a person is postulated as presented with two equally attractive and attainable alternatives and therefore loses freedom of choice. It was named after the 14th century French philosopher Jean Buridan, whose philosophy of moral determinism it satirizes.
