After the shootout that takes place in whiteout conditions described as "the biggest blizzard in years," there is almost no snow on the ground, in the trees or on rooftops. This can be clearly seen through the windows of Molly and Mr. Wrench's hospital rooms and in subsequent outdoor shots. There is no sign of a recent snowfall (much less a major blizzard) anywhere.

Lorne Malvo: [Pointing at two telephones] This one calls an ambulance, that one calls a hearse. I'm gonna ask you again, and depending on the answer, I pick up this, or that. Who do I talk to in Fargo?

Lester Comes Into His Own
6 October 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Lorne has become almost a supernatural character. Perhaps this whole series is an allegory. He has now taken it upon himself to find out who set the dogs on him. He is such a killing machine. Meanwhile, Molly recovers with Gus at her side. The gunshot went through her leg. She begins to put two and two together concerning Lester, but it appears that she is the only one. When Lester left the hospital, he put evidence in his brother's hidden gun cabinet that sets him up as the killer. Everything starts when the gun he placed in the boy's backpack falls on the floor of his classroom. During an interview, Lester betrays his brother, leaving him to swing in the wind for the murder he committed. When Molly finds out, she is stunned. There are some really remarkable scenes, among them an outside shot of a building as Lorne takes his assault rifle to unleash carnage. We never see any of the murders, just glass being demolished and he shouts of the victims. Very good.
