BWW Recap: 'The Castle' Collapses on FARGO
by Kaitlin Milligan - Dec 8, 2015

Anxiety. That is how I felt for over half of episode 9 of FARGO, 'The Castle.' There is so much to discuss, but I can't begin this recap without talking about the UFO! The entire season there have been very small glimpses into there being an alien undertone, but we never had any direction for it. In this episode is the most glaringly obvious indication of it: a giant UFO hovers over the carnage at the motel, distracting Bear long enough for Lou to kill him. However, other than it appearing, there is no explanation to it. It just hovers for 30 seconds and then disappears. I wish I had some interesting observation about the symbolism of the UFO, but I honestly have no idea where showrunner Noah Hawley is going with this. I'm just hoping for an explanation in the finale. (more...)
