It's just a flyin' saucer, Ed. We gotta go.

I don't know what to make of the flying saucer thing... on one hand, this show is freaking excellent... on the other, flying saucers. It reminded me so much of American Horror Story that it took me right out of a very intense scene.

Maybe they'll use a rug to do so.

Definitely looking forward to tonight's finale! This season has been pretty stellar. I still stand by my thoughts that Season 01 was a tad bit better. Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton were just perfect.

That line to shut her whiny ass up was beautiful.

Loved it. And maybe it was unrealistic but I was expecting a little more character resolution. Oh well. Stellar season and I hope Bokeem and Kirtsen get Emmy nods.

After such an amazing season, and such an action-packed penultimate episode, I can't help but feel the season finale was a little anti-climactic. There were some great moments of course, but after they caught Peggy there was 30 minutes left and it just seemed to address loose ends for half the episode.

Good season, but season 1 was definitely better.

Don't agree even in the smallest bit. I loved Bill Bob and Martin Freeman but I thought this was one of the best if not the best seasons of TV I have ever seen. Loved every second. Not that season 1 was bad, but not in the same world as Season 2, in my view.

What happened to Mike reminded me of The Shield finale.

Why did you have to spoiler that? It was pretty well laid out in the show and really does make it so that that side of Hanzee got as much resolution as we needed.

I loved every minute of this season. Such an awesome high that never stumbled on a beat. You're left wanting, but not because they didn't tie things up, they sure as hell did that. You just want more of what this is, amazing writing.

A lot better than S1 and that's odd to think of how you can improve on perfection.

I had the same thought.

Good finale. I too wondered what they would do when it seemed like the episode was over 30 minutes in when Lou is driving Peggy back.

Hilarious how Bokeem Woodbine's character gets a tiny office and boring job when he thinks he's gonna become a boss.

Really glad we didn't have to witness a certain death.

Loved the scene of the 3 of them sitting in the living room near the end.

Looking forward to the present day version of Season 3, which I assume will feature Alison Tolman.

You're in the minority here. Nearly everyone I've talked to says Season 2 was clearly better.

Season 1 was great. Season 2 was all-time TV great.

Lorne Malvo is the best character in the series (and a better villain than the Gerhardt family) and Season 1 was more tense and unpredictable. Lester Nygaard did a better job of channeling the personality and spirit of Jerry Lundegaard then Peggy and Ed. Ed, Lester, and Jerry were just people in over their heads. Peggy is an out of touch moron. The UFO thing was stupid too.

I agree with you 100%. This season was great but the first season was better.
