Spoilers for  'Fargo' Season 4 Episode 10

'Fargo' Season 4 Episode 10 shows how Josto Fadda (Jason Schwartzman) used Gaetano (Salvatore Esposito) to take care of all his troubles – but something about what he said to Gaetano after taking Odis out had fans speculating that Josto will end up killing his brother. That, despite all the bonding that we have seen in the recent episodes. However, that is not how Gaetano's death occurs.

In Episode 10, we saw how Gaetano confessed to Josto about why their father Donatello had ended up sending Gaetano away from Kansas City. Josto, also thanks his brother when he steps up and punches a man for saying 'no' to Josto. 

We also see how Josto uses Gaetano to exact revenge on Odis. You see, Odis had refused to return back to the fold and the only way out for him is in a body bag. So Josto tells Gaetano to see to it and adds that this would be the fate of anyone who turns their back on them. Somehow, his warning sounds a lot more ominous and in the face of how Josto is about to be called out for killing his father with Nurse Mayflower's help.

As sweet as it was to see Josto and Gaetano bond over memories, these brothers are probably not meant to rule Kansas City together, and that's been made particularly clear since Gaetano shot himself in Episode 10. That's right! Gaetano ended up shooting himself in the face and by mistake at that! It is shocking the first time you see it. However, the more you think of it, the more comical Gaetano's death seems in the grand scheme of things. How else could one explain the way he died right after shooting Odis in the head? 

Even as Josto called out that he wanted his brother to hurry because he wanted to pee, Gaetano walking hurriedly and slipping on a stepping stone as he fell down; by mistake also pulling the trigger is what really took him away. One fan in fact commented on how wasted all of this seemed and wrote on Reddit, "What a hilarious way for Gaetano to go out. So sudden. I loved him as a loving brother to Josto, but considering what he did in the cafe, I can’t say it wasn’t coming. And if you think about it, the trip may have been directly caused by Josto. “Hurry up, I gotta pee”. So Josto did end up killing Gaetano in the end." Another fan also pointed out what we have been thinking and that is, "There was too much brotherly love. It's never a good sign for a character's luck."

New episodes for 'Fargo' Season 4 air every Sunday at 10 pm ET on FX and can be streamed on Hulu.
