When Hank is speaking to the local Captain Cheney, he tells him that he served in the "Great War" in the liberation of France. "The Great War" generally refers to WWI, and the Liberation of France is a term used when speaking about WWII. In 1979, Hank would have needed to be around 80 years old to have served in WWI, and his character is likely in his mid/late 60's as Ted Danson is in real life. Hank would have to be referring to WWII; in an earlier episode he tells Lou a war story that is clearly from WWII, so to call it "The Great War" is erroneous. See more »

Narrator: And so, we come to perhaps the bloodiest chapter in the long and violent history of the Midwest region. And here, I'm speaking of Luverne, Minnesota, 1979 - commonly referred to by laypeople as the Massacre at Sioux Falls.

Ed and Peggy Define Teflon

Once again, this series outdoes itself. This is the convergence of the twain. Ed and Peggy Blumquist are being held by authorities in the cabin they rented as a hideout. Dodd is dead, but the idiot cops try to set up a big sting by proposing to wire the erstwhile butcher and his mate and expose the Kansas City mob. They hole up in a motel and await the arrival of the Kansas mafia. What they don't realize is that the Gerhardts have been informed by Hanzee that Dodd is being held (actually, he shot him in the head in the last episode after some racial slurs were sent his way). Lou is the voice of reason and warns the overzealous knuckleheads and they send him packing. The meeting with Mike is the next morning. Guess what. The Gerhardts arrive at night. You can well imagine. There are some scenes of incredible violence. Hanzee has suddenly tapped into his Native American heritage, realizing how wronged he has been by his adoptive family. He begins playing to the middle. How could this get any better?
