Fargo (Season 5) Episode 9 Preview: Episode 8, “Blanket,” of Fargo’s fifth season has dropped a lot of bombshells, including the identity of Scotty’s biological father, Olmstead’s response to Lorraine, and Danish Graves’s ultimate destiny. Sheriff Tillman’s arrival to retrieve Dot from the hospital was the shocking revelation at the end of last week’s episode, “Linda” (7). 

In “Blanket,” the stunning cliffhanger is continued as Tillman returns Dot to his ranch to face an unprecedented and harsh penalty for her betrayal. Sylvain White, who previously directed “Linda,” is in charge of directing this episode, which is based on a story that was co-written by series creator Noah Hawley and Thomas Bezucha.
