Gloria and Winnie get closer to the truth, Emmit tries to make things right, Nikki and Ray prepare for payback and Varga cleans up a mess. Written by Noah Hawley; directed by Dearbhla Walsh.

Spoiler:
The tension was so hard to take in this episode.

Totally did not think they would take Ray out so early

Very good episode. Gut wrenching scene between the brothers. Seems like Emmit is now beholden to Varga. Nikki remains the wild card. Will the three gals band together to take down the teeth picker?

Good episode. Although I'm tired of the killing someone accidentally cliche on shows/movies.

Felt like I was watching The Leftovers during the final scene with Carrie Coon and the violin piece playing.

And that's why you use acrylic plexi-glass in picture frames!

Now he's beholden? Emmit has had no control over his future since Varga showed up in his life.

I really wish they would stop grossing us out with Varga. We get it, he's disgusting in every way. Only thing I don't like about this season.

Varga and his henchmen are the only characters that I care about on this show. Everyone else is kinda boring.

I don't think this season is quite up to par with past seasons (at least at this point), but this episode was really well done. Some quality scenes with real good tension - in addition to the brothers, I also like the police circling the house without them knowing who it was.

Only thing that seemed off to me (which is a minor nitpick) is Varga just making himself at home in the office while they were questioning Emmit. And they just allowed it to happen with him not even giving his name?

I want Nikki to kill all three of them.

Yeah, Ray's death was quite a surprise, but I'm just not feeling this season and don't really feel like there's anyone to root for. It feels very cliche and By-The-Numbers so far.
It's the weakest season of the three by a wide margin.

It's definitely missing the stand-out performances that raised the bar on the other seasons. They are not terrible, but nothing seems to be on par with even the better supporting actors from S1 or S2. I would like to read the breakdown by the reviewer that stated S3 was the best season yet.

Nott much buzz this season, but still a good watch.

Surprised that Ray was killed off - on one hand I like that it gets rid of the hokey non-twin brother mix up thing, and we can focus on just one of the characters.

I have mixed feelings about this season - an episode like this keeps my attention, and previous ones were all over the place.

I like the idea of the 3 "gals" banding together to solve this case / get revenge.
