Maybe he got bored and Paul decided to give him this one? Though why five years to do that?

Hadn't thought about the punishment angle, but that's an interesting way to put it since I wonder if Nikki might have slightly reconsidered or not pursued Emmit with the same vigor if she knew that he didn't even mean to kill Ray. Not to mention that he'd already confessed to what he'd done. Guess she just wanted justice in her own way. But when she trains her gun towards the officer, even though she was intending to hit Emmit, she signed her own death warrant.

I actually thought Nikki's death was punishment for trying to kill the officer, but everyone else thinks it's for trying to kill Emmit.

Maybe Wrench was just waiting for the heat to die down before going for Emmit. Still doesn't explain why he was divinely allowed to kill Emmit, though.

The explanation I saw on reddit said that Paul Marrane/The Wandering Jew sent Nikki on a mission to fight evil. He told her that thing about an eagle and she had some trouble remembering what he said so he told her that she will remember it when the time comes. She tried to recite it before killing Emmit and she still couldn't remember it completely. Implying that Emmit wasn't the man she was supposed to kill.

It adds another fun little element when you factor in Varga's fond recollections of Russia.

The finale was pretty great. However, this season felt like it took too long to get things started, kinda like True Detective Season 2.

It could be the officer as well, but the fact that the show made a point of showing Emmit ducking makes me think Nikki was aiming for him, and maybe the officer was just in the line of sight as well.

For Wrench it could be that he wasn't given a mission like Nikki was.

That makes a lot of sense. The Wandering Jew, God, a higher power, the universe (however you want to look at it) gave her a second chance, conditioned on her doing the right thing. She let her need for personal vengeance get in the way of her quest for justice, was willing to take an innocent life in the process, and as a result she blew her second chance and it was taken away.
