Fargo, Season 2
In 1979, the Gearhardts are a family controlling all criminal activity in the northern areas around Fargo, North Dakota. In the first episode, “Waiting for Dutch,” the Kansas City mob has decided they want to take over the area and are willing to pay for the takeover. But Floyd Gearhardt (Jean Smart), who rules the family with an iron hand, refuses their offer and a war between the two groups seems inevitable. Her oldest son Dodd, who believes he’s the one in charge, is more than willing to begin the blood bath. The two plot lines, the mob war and the death of Rye, a younger Gearhardt son, set everything in motion, and the blood flows like the waters of the Fargo Red River. Ed and Peggy Blomquist (Jesse Piemons and Kirsten Dunst) get involved when Peggy, on her way home from the beauty shop in Laverne, Minnesota, strikes Rye outside a country diner. Rye, not quite dead, is pinned to her car in the broken windshield. Instead of calling 911, Peggy drives home and parks in their garage, with Rye still in the windshield. Ed, her husband, after he finds Rye has to kill him in self-defense. Peggy then implores him to get rid of the body. Peggy is not entirely all there as we learn from seeing her basement, a maze of passages through all the beauty and self-improvement magazines she’s collected over the years. Ed is a butcher in the process of buying the butcher shop from his boss. How does Ed get rid of Rye? You guessed it, you betcha, a parallel to the Fargo film and the wood chipper.
