Did You Know?


Ed Blumquist tells Lou Solverson the story of Sisyphus, a Greek mythological figure condemned to push a boulder up a hill for eternity. This is not the first time the story of Sisyphus is referenced. The third episode of season 2 is titled Fargo: The Myth of Sisyphus (2015) and in it Noreen (the girl behind the counter in the butcher shop) can be seen reading the book of the same name by Albert Camus. Camus uses the story of Sisyphus in his book to explain the absurdity of life. See more »


Korean War vet Karl, when being convinced to help negotiate between Bear Gerhardt & Lou Solverson, mentions that he once "stared down Chiang Kai-Shek". As Chiang Kai-Shek was an anti-communist ally of the US and fled to Taiwan prior to the start of the Korean War, I think what Karl Weathers should've said that he "stared down Mao Tse-Tung", the leader of the Chinese Communists who invaded Korea from the north in 1950.

Ed Blumquist: And I can't stop thinking about that book.
Ed Blumquist: Noreen's book. It's, like, stuck in my head.
Lou Solverson: What? What book?
Ed Blumquist: It's about this guy who, every day, he- he pushes this rock up this hill. Like a boulder. And then every night, it just rolls back down. But he doesn't stop. You know, he just- he keeps goin'. And -and he wakes up every day and starts pushin'. By which I-I-I guess I'm- I'm sayin' it doesn't matter what they throw at me. I'm gonna take care of what's mine. And...
Lou Solverson: These boys aren't gonna rest ...

Terrific Tension
24 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the Blomquists go their ridiculous ways, being clueless to what is going on around them, we have an assault on their home. There are incredible visuals. When they go into the basement and see the piles of magazines, we are further made aware of how crazy Peggy truly is. Her fantasy world knows no limits. The Gearharts are on their doorstep. Nick Offerman is fantastic in his role as the right wing, much inebriated lawyer. Lou continues to try to be true to his calling and we wonder how he has stayed alive as long as he has. His wife continues to battle her cancer and it appears that she may have only received a placebo, not the experimental drug. There is betrayal from the daughter, Simone, who cares not at all about the future of her warring family. She is, of course, too stupid to realize what a dangerous game she is playing. Meanwhile, the Blomquists are off somewhere doing who knows what with a surprise in the trunk. Ed has received the title of "the Butcher" (which, of course, he is). is).
