We all know that the penultimate episode of any series is going to be an eventful chapter and action-packed. Fargo is no exception. On the contrary, the hit FX series is known for unpredictable and intense moments. And from everything we have seen so far, we are in for a wild ride tonight!

If you're not caught up on Fargo season 5, go stream any episode you may have missed on Hulu before you read ahead. Though we don't go into details, we do spoil significant events below. Spoiler alert!

Fargo season 5 episode 9, titled "The Useless Hand," is the penultimate episode of the season. Now, the synopsis from FX offers no hints as to what to expect, giving us only three words: "The tide turns." Leave it to FX to keep us in the dark when it comes to episode descriptions. Thankfully, the teaser trailer for the episode has much more to offer.

In the teaser, which you can check out below, deputy Indira is seeing on the phone with deputy Witt telling him that "it's time." It's nice to know that Witt is not giving up on this case an is still determined to help Dot. But, even better? The SWAT team is moving in! Unfortunately, we know that Roy is not going to give up easily. In episode 8, Roy kills Danish, but we know there is an even bigger death ahead in the finale, or the penultimate -- or both!
