This review failed to mention that although Gus got the award, Molly became Chief of Police, which is what she wanted from the beginning when Vern told her she should be the next Chief. There’s an underated strength in that - eschewing public accolades in favor of the things that really matter. Also, I personally interpreted the green riddle going another way. Yes, Molly told him seeing through shades of green was a protection against predators, but humans are omnivores. They can be either prey or predator, and Malvo was most definitely the wolf among the sheep. He sees through shades of green to hunt better - Gus realized he would have to think outside of the normal laws of humanity, to think as a predator. That has always been the message of Fargo to me - that those who symbolize the best parts of humanity (those who believe in justice, in caring for their fellow man, those who live by the codes learned at the hearth and in the home) these people come up against real evil, the Malvos of this world, and in the end are proved the superior race. They are the ones who win out in natural selection. In the movie, Marge Gunderson took down the wolf, in thw series Molly Solverson became Chief of Police. I think both are good cases for solid female characters finding theirs places in “patriarchy”, but I think their bigger triumph is over the unlawful predatory thinking that leads to creaturea like Malvo.
