On Fargo S5E4, “Insolubilila”

On Halloween night, Gator and his masked crew invade Dot and Wayne’s home. She has the house booby-trapped, so Dot and her family are able to escape, but not before Wayne is severely injured and the house catches on fire and burns down. 

Officers Olmstead and Farr have confirmed that Dot was the victim that was kidnapped and are trying to question Dot about the events while getting shot down by Lorraine and Danish.

Meanwhile, Munch left an ominous note in the girls’ room at the Tillman house after breaking in. 

Roy Tillman goes over to wife-abuser Joshua’s house and shoots him, convincing Gator and Joshua’s wife to tell the story that it was Munch.

  • What happened in Dot/Nadine’s past, exactly?
  • On having your own reality and “alternative facts”
  • Munch as representing how reality cannot be fully denied
  • Everyone wants to keep the authorities out of everything
  • The title refers to the Liar’s Paradox
