Better Call Saul Breaking Bad Kim Wexler

Who Came Out on Top in 'Fargo's Season 4 Finale?

Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley breaks down the season finale of the most ambitious chapter yet in his History of True Crime in the Mid West: his sprawling season 4 Kansas City crime epic that pitted two mob families, led by Loy Cannon (Chris Rock) and Josto Fadda (Jason Schwartzman), against each other. The season had the usual Fargo-ian elements of murder, mayhem, and pitch-black comedy, but also with the added and timely resonance of looking at race relations in America. Below, Hawley takes some of our lingering questions about the season in general and Sunday's finale in particular (spoilers ahead!). And the first time I saw No Country for Old Men, and Josh Brolin goes, "I'm going to make you my special project," and you think, "Okay, it's on," but then 10 minutes later Brolin is dead in a motel room, killed by this Mexican cartel. Going back in time a bit, I loved the episode "East/West" and wondered if you talk about the decision to do the hour in black-and-white, aside from the obvious Oz homage.

There was a point early on where I told FX, "The good news is I've decided not to film the entire season in black-and-white," so you should feel lucky we're just doing this one hour. Because he has all these tics and because he calls Josto "boss," Jack thought [when the character is introduced in the season's second episode, which Hawley directed] I wanted him to have a kind of obsequiousness, a toadyism about him. I wanted it like the death of the state trooper in Fargo: It's shocking because it happens so quickly and it's gory, it's graphic, and seems a bit over-the-top, so it becomes what violence actually is, which is overwhelming in the moment. And finally, any thoughts on a Fargo season 5? By the look of the car driving down the road it's some two-plus decades after the events of the rest of Fargo Season 4.

Indeed, we're paying a visit to a pair of characters from Fargo Season 2, Mike Milligan and one of the Kitchen Brothers, his muscle. Earlier in the episode Loy returned to his house to find the boy he thought had been killed by the Fadda family waiting in his bedroom. Fargo Season 4 was in many ways the slightest of the show's four seasons to date; the gangster story was straightforward, it was largely a battle of criminal against criminal without much in the honest-person department to complicate matters, and the side stories about Oraetta Mayflower and Zelmare Roulette and Swanee Capps and Odis Weff and Dick "Deafy" Wickware (who dropped his "Deafy" gimmick pretty early) largely remained side stories until the very end, when Oraetta and Zelmare returned to wreak havoc on the fates of Josto Fadda and Loy Cannon respectively.

Here is everything we know so far about Fargo Season 5.

This article provides everything that is known about Fargo Season 5 and all related news. When talking about the shocking finale of Fargo Season 4, creator and showrunner Noah Hawley told Deadline that he was thinking about what will come next in the interconnected anthology series. Release date latest: When does Fargo Season 5 come out? He also has several other projects he is working on, so he is keeping busy, even without thinking about a new season of Fargo. While Noah Hawley said there is no reason to tie in everyone in the Fargo series to each other, the finale of Season 4 did tie into a previous season.

Loy's son, Satchel, turned out to be Mike Milligan (Bokeem, Woodbine), the '70s gangster from Fargo Season 2. The second season had a man trying to cover up a hit-and-run killing by his wife, but the fact it was the son of a crime family made it something they couldn't escape. Finally, the fourth season was about two crime families, one black and the other immigrant, trying to co-exist. [Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for Season 4, Episode 11 of Fargo, "Storia Americana."] Fargo closed the book on its latest chapter as Noah Hawley's FX anthology unveiled the fate of its characters while also confirming one of Season 4's biggest fan theories. Ethelrida Pearl (E'myri Crutchfield) was responsible for ending the bloody war between the crime organizations after she handed over former Fadda boss Donatello's ring — which had previously been in nurse Oraetta Mayflower's (Jessie Buckley) possession after she poisoned him — to Loy Cannon (Chris Rock).

While Loy Cannon may have felt like a winner after ending his war with the Faddas and discovering his son Satchel (Rodney L. Yet it was none of these new characters' fates that really spoke to the longtime fans of Fargo because it was a post-credits scene confirming a fan theory that's been circling for a while regarding Loy's son Satchel. Creator Hawley certainly knows how to tie the separate seasons together, and this reveal provided a little bit of clarity and offered insight into a character fans haven't encountered since 2015. Fargo ended its excellent season 4 story with a bang - several of them, in fact. As it turns out, the popular fan theory was right: Fargo season 4 wasn't just some isolated tale of gangster violence - it was also a tale about the making of one particular famous gangster from the series. (Spoilers) Fargo season 4 ends with the brutal slaying of the season's lead character, black mob leader Loy Cannon, on his own front doorstep. Fargo season 4 ends with the epilogue reveal "Satchel Cannon" as a fully-grown man, who Fargo fans immediately recognized as season 2's gangster workman, Mike Milligan (Bokeem Woodbine). Since Gale Kitchen is solo this is clearly after the events of Fargo season 2 (where his brother Wayne was killed), but it seems Mike is no longer stuck behind a desk, serving as a true "company man" for the mob. Fargo fans had a lot of clues going into the finale that Satchel Cannon was actually Mike Milligan - not in the least because of some big name-drop clues. The bond that Satchel and Rabbi formed, and their time spent on the run together, seemed like the perfect backstory to how Mike Milligan became a black man with an Irish last name. If nothing else, Fargo season 4 deepens and enriches the story of one of its fan-favorite characters, while also deepening the series' Americana themes about power, profit, and violence.
