Did You Know?


The Dream Sequence in the beginning of the episode, mirrors the pseudo-prophetic dream (e.g music, tone, family centered) that Nicholas Cage's character H.I. has at the end of the Coen Brother's film, "Raising Arizona". Also the shift in the dream sequence to the nightmarish vision of a hell-like being (Hanzee) parallels the nightmare dream sequence in the middle of "Raising Arizona" that H.I. has of a hell-like being (bounty hunter - Leonard Smalls).

Noreen Vanderslice: Do you feel it?
Betsy Solverson: Feel what?
Noreen Vanderslice: My aunt lost her bosom to cancer. Said it felt like somebody took a hot poker and put it through her heart.
Betsy Solverson: No. Not like that. Not yet. You know how sometimes you get a peach from the bowl and one side is ripe and yellow and the other is black and moldy? That - that's the only way I can think to describe it.
Noreen Vanderslice: Camus says knowin' we're gonna die makes life absurd.
Betsy Solverson: Well, I don't know who that is. But I'm guessing he doesn't have a 6-year-old girl.

A peculiar ending, this.

The episode prior to this had factions being wiped out, fugitives on the run and all sorts of unanswered questions lying around. And for the most part, 'Palindrome' answers those, at least where it counts; but it sure has a funny way of going about it. There really are no rug-pulls here, and everything feels like it's attended to properly. In that respect, this is a perfect ending, even with a cynical streak. I love that Mike survived the Motel massacre only to be promoted into corporate imprisonment.

Getting right down to it, this is the show's idea of a happy ending; where the resolution arrives neatly packaged without cloying sentiment. The right people survived the shootout, the bad ones are appropriately punished, and life carries on. It's appropriate for this season, which is honestly one of the finest stretches of television I've ever witnessed. The level of quality is maintained, it's honest, and worthwhile in every respect.
