Reagan comes to Minnesota in the latest episode of Fargo, while war comes to the Gerhardts and Kansas City syndicate.
Spoilers for Fargo: Season 2 "The Gift of the Magi" are contained below.
Leave it to Fargo to Bruce Campbell's much anticipated guest appearance as Ronald Reagan not be the high point of Season 2's fifth episode. This midpoint of the second season struck the perfect balance of stunning violence with deep emotional revelations. Fargo is currently running on all cylinders, and though good things aren't coming to the Solversons, the Gerhardts or the Blumquists, it's impossible to look away.
"The Gift of the Magi" opened by cutting between Governor Reagan's speech in Fargo and Floyd taking the war to the Kansas City syndicate. Hopefully I wasn't alone in having trouble focusing on what Reagan was saying because the Gerhardt men attacking the Kansas City crew was so engaging. We lost a Kitchen Brother to Hanzee here, which later caused some dangerous friction between Simone and Mike Milligan as he essentially told her, his fling and double agent, that this can never happen again. The Gerhardt crew decapitated Joe Bulo even, which is a clear sign that they aren't going down without taking a whole lot of Kansas City men with them.
