The last chapter of Fargo is set in Minnesota and North Dakota, 2019. After an unexpected series of events puts “Dorothy ‘Dot’ Lyon” (Juno Temple) in trouble with the authorities, this seemingly typical Midwestern housewife suddenly finds herself thrust into a life she thought she had left behind.
North Dakota sheriff “Roy Tillman” (Jon Hamm) has been searching for Dot for a long time. A rancher, preacher, and constitutionalist, Roy believes he is the law and therefore is above the law. At his side is his loyal but inept son, “Gator” (Joe Keery), who is desperate to prove himself to his father. Too bad he’s hopeless. So when it comes to hunting Dot, Roy enlists “Ole Munch” (Sam Spruell), a dark drifter of mysterious origin.
With her deepest secrets beginning to unravel, Dot attempts to protect her family from her past, but her loving, well-meaning husband “Wayne” (David Rysdahl) keeps running to her mother, “Lorraine Lyon” (Jennifer Jason Leigh), for help. CEO of the largest debt collection agency in the country, the “Debt Queen” is unimpressed by her son’s choice to choose a wife and spares no opportunity to express her disapproval. However, when Dot’s unusual behavior attracts the attention of Minnesota police deputy “Indira Olmstead” (Richa Moorjani) and North Dakota deputy “Witt Farr” (Lamorne Morris), Lorraine appoints her in-house counsel and counselor main, “Danish Graves” (Dave Foley) to help his daughter-in-law. After all, family is family. But Dot has an uncanny knack for survival. And with her back against the wall, she’s about to prove why you should never provoke a mother Lyon.
