Laughed out loud at the "you can pay the fine online" scene. I'm still a little confused that no one got in trouble for firing a gun at the diner, although I don't blame the person shooting for being so pissed at June that she had to pop off. "Thanks for helping me salvage my own rapist, but no, I'm not going to help you get yours." Really, June?

I appreciated that the fine for mailing the finger of someone like Fred was $88.

The fine thing was so, so Canadian. (I am also Canadian.)

I really thought last season was the last season - Killing Fred just felt so climactic I guess? I was very surprised to hear there was a new season.

The amount of trauma on display here was just grotesque. This show has far since left any realist8c relatability.
