"Morton's Fork" was the perfect conclusion to Lester and Lorne's game of cat and mouse.
Fargo Season 1 Episode 10 was a stressful hour of television to watch unfold. Throughout Fargo season 1, Lorne and Lester came out on top by manipulating those around them, including the cops and FBI. In the end, it was their chance reunion that ended up costing them everything.
This tragic tale all started with Lorne's seemingly simple question, "Is this what you want?" and it all came to an end when that question was asked and answered again. Lorne put the responsibility for the future on Lester and the insurance salesman made the wrong choice.
