On Fargo S5E6, “The Tender Trap”

The Queen (Dot/Nadine) is nowhere to be found, but all the pieces on the chess board are making moves around her. Roy is furious at another one of Gator’s screw-ups and decides to re-hire Munch to take care of Dot once and for all. Indira yells at Lorraine, as she learns what a victim Dot has been in the past. Lorraine offers her a job. Lorraine and Roy both go after Vivian, the bank owner, and threaten him in different ways. The FBI want Dot so they can use her to go after Roy and his father-in-law’s militia. Meanwhile, Wayne is still confused and aimless and Scotty plays Lars’ drums.
