When offering tea to Emmetts business partner VM Varga describes it as a recipe his mother had “smuggled beneath her bosom all the way from Wales to Bristol”
Bristol in England is roughly 10 or 20 miles from the Welsh border, when crossing Severn bridge, and hasnt had any real form of border security in living memory. If she ever truly had “smuggled” the tea into Bristol she would only have to hop into a car and nip down the road.
Whereas Lorne Malvo seems to believe in his predator/prey analogies, Varga taunts the people he manipulates in his longwinded empty speaches. Obviously Vargas bullshit was clear from the start and he made no effort being subtle towards the end of season 3, but this moment in particular stuck with me.
