Critic Reviews for The Lord of No Mercy

I have to point out how incredible Ewan McGregor is throughout this entire episode as both Stussy brothers, but Ray in particular.

Sometimes the show just needs to take viewers on a sprint, and the taut, economic "The Lord of No Mercy" did a fantastic job of just that.

Am I the only one who's starting to think V.M. Varga (David Thewlis) isn't all he's, uh, cracked up to be?

My best guess (and strongest hope) about this episode's title, 'The Lord of No Mercy,' is that it's a reference to James 2:13 in the Bible.

If it's surprising, it's also necessary, and suggests a more exciting conclusion to the season than prior episodes might have suggested.

With the creator Noah Hawley taking over scripting duties, Fargo enters the second half of its 10-episode season by eliminating one of its catalysts, but tightening the screws elsewhere.

It's fun to see how much this show can mix it up in terms of length, and this one was tight and clever, although I'm starting to worry that there isn't enough time left in this season to wrap everything up.

May 26, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

As the opening titles have indicated, this season of Fargo is all about the nature of truth - what is true, whether it is immutable, who defines truth, etc. On Fargo Season 3 Episode 6, that theme is particularly pertinent.

May 26, 2017 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

It's still too early to unpack all the thematic musings, but one does get the sense that this season, for all of its cops-and-criminals drama, is one focused on the need for human connection, truth and empathy.

Fargo has steadily gotten better each week and I hope that trend continues.
