Where does Varga shower?

In the show, Varga is seen to be living out of the back of a semi-truck. So where does he shower?

The semi-truck doesn’t appear to have any sort of running water. Does he shower at a gym or something? If so, then where does he brush his teeth (does he even do that?) or shave?

So how does Hanzee/Tripoli establish his crimi…

It’s all speculation, but I’m curious how you guys think Hanzee was able to set himself up to be the criminal overlord of North Dakota.

We know from season 2 that KC has officially beaten the Gerhardts, and they have already deployed people to take over their territory.

So not only would Hanzee have to take out an established crew with boots on the ground, he would have to contend with the weight of KC. We can assume this weight is substantial given we never see anyone above “middle management” throughout season 2.

Hanzee’s guy who sets him up with his new identity blatantly says that KC will be armed and ready, to which Hanzee makes it clear he’s not afraid of the threat.

So how does Hanzee re-emerge and create so much interference that KC gives up on their northern expansion? I think it’s important to note that the expansion got off the ground and was no longer a “plan underway,” which would make any criminal organization less willing to just give up on it. Even during the process of acquiring Northern Territory, KC loses lots of guys but never discusses pulling out of the campaign.

I have a theory that’s pretty tinfoil, but I’d like to hear what you guys think.

Where, I believe, the Fargo TV series is going…

Godlike antagonists.

In the movie Fargo, what really sold me was that both the protagonists and antagonists were totally incompetent and therefore completely relatable.

In the three seasons of Fargo that have been aired thus far, what has really gotten to me is the change from stupid antagonists to these sort of god tier antagonists. I mean the moronic criminals are still there, but they’re in the background and generally play second fiddle to the overpowered monsters that have come to characterize the TV show.

In the first season, we have Malvo. I love Malvo, but he’s not really human. He’s one guy operating pretty much alone. He’s very clever, but at the same time no man can be everywhere at once.

Hanzee Dent is pretty much just a god of war. Again, like Malvo, he seems to be able to do things that are borderline impossible. Of the god tier antagonists though, he’s probably the least offensive as he does, for most of the plot, work with other people until right near the end.

The worst offender though of this entire batch, and why I might consider cancellation justified, is fucking V.M. Varga. Varga is impossible. I like him, but he seems to have perfect information and I pretty much lost respect for the show when he and his boys took on the prison transport. With that kind of power at his fingertips he doesn’t need Stussy. Pretty much the entire of season 3 in fact makes no sense. I also think that Swango butchering a whole mob gets a little silly near the end too.

Where are the incompetent antagonists these days?
