Is it better to walk away from a potentially dangerous situation, or face it head on, even if you don’t have to? For Lester Nygaard, the darker path is also the slimier one as he forces his way back into Lorne Malvo’s life. “A Fox, a Rabbit, and a Cabbage” isn’t as fast paced as previous episodes have been, but that doesn’t take away from the great dialogue and very tense situations. It’s all building up to what should be a satisfying finale.
Life doesn’t always turn out the way we’d expect, but when the chips fall, it’s best to be insured. “The Heap” made a surprising move that advanced character storylines in ways I didn’t expect, but emphasized that one unexpected turn of events can change your life, as has been the case since Lorne Malvo’s arrival. The episode’s big move creates more questions, but none of them took away from another well done episode.
