My wife just drove through downtown Lakeville, and said they are open and it's packed in there. I guess if they are going to go down, they might as well rack up as many fines as they can.
I’m not sure if everyone got this right away or not. So, in season 1, we see Mike moving to Albuquerque, NM shortly after retiring, and he retired one week after his son Marty was killed. We find out through dialogue and some scenes, that Mike hit the bottle pretty hard after his son died. Being a career cop, it seems likely he has had a problem with alcohol for some time, and the event of his sons murder triggered a full-blown downward spiral. Then, when we meet Mike in season 1, he seems to have recovered from his drinking.
We also see the whole thing with Fensky and Hoffman. He plans to shoot them with a brilliant plan of acting wasted at the bar, planting a gun in the cop car, while not actually being drunk at all.
Of course, I always thought his story of having some problems with drinking after his son died made perfect sense. And I also thought it was interesting that he was able to pull off the job on those cops with a lot of self-control. But, obviously, he was never actually an alcoholic. So, after his son died, he knew who did it, so he made plans to correct the situation. He started by going to the bar and drinking every night, in order to build up a tolerance to alcohol. The more you drink, the more it takes to actually get drunk. It had to be convincing, because that was a cop bar, everyone knew everyone. The bartender was serving him whiskey. He was actually drinking it, not pouring it out or something. So, then everyone in town thought he was getting wasted every night. Then, the night of the double murder, he just had a few drinks, stopping at the cop bar last, and acting totally wasted.
Like, first off, how is this man not in jail?! He shot at cops! Second, why is his bar still open and selling drinks? He got his alcohol license suspended and continues to say f you to the state. For a man who flies a blue line flag, he really doesn't care about law and order, and from what I've seen, hes going to run for governor. I hope that ones at least false.

People might ask ‘How tf?’, when you go out with a full grown beard instead of the baby face they are used to seeing. What do you/would you say? Reveal about the juice or go with an alibi?
This timeline by u/snoocupcakes7285 helped me reorganize my thoughts and put all the reports and rumors I've read together to make a wild guess as to what happened.
Alexis last uses her phone sometime around 6 on Friday. Tom reports they fought later that night, she skipped out the back, jumped into a car, and he chased after her using find my phone, lost her, wandered around trying to get a signal, then sat in a gas station parking lot for two hours. Then he called the boyfriend of one of Alexis's friends around 11, asking for any information on her whereabouts.
I think Alexis did go out the back door. Or rather, her remains did. In a duffle bag, or the like. Tom runs out the front door, conveniently recorded by Nest, sees she's not going to her car, (because she's in a duffle bag, and dead), and runs around back to look for her escaping in an imaginary car. He grabs the duffel and takes it to his car.
Alexis' phone is on and at home, so as Tom "chases after the car," he loses the signal. Meanders around, doubles back, Meanders some more. There are a few gas stations very close to the dumping site, so he parks at one of those either before or after he dumps the body. I'm leaning toward after. During his meanderings, he happens upon Red Haw road and puts Alexis' body in some of the brush across the ditch, out of sight. Back home, Nest records his return. He calls the friend's boyfriend. He's established a reason his meanderings might have taken him near Red Haw, the gas station time would likely be on camera, his comings and goings and Alexis' failure to appear on Ring are accounted for, and he even provided a contemporaneous report of his comings and goings with a third party. Alibi established.
Several inches of rain fell on Thursday into Friday, and with little slope and poor drainage, the water levels rose enough to move Alexis' body into the more visible spot where she was found the next day.
Since Tom has been pushing this "intoxicated" line, I'm guessing she had some drinks before whatever happened to set this in motion, and I'd guess whatever killed Alexis happened earlier than later to give Tom some time to plan. If the rumors of cocaine and mushrooms being found by police at the house are true, what if scoring them was the reason Tom was hanging out for two hours at the gas station? Drugs in the house would bolster a narrative that Alexis had shady people... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have no idea what Nancy put in the time capsule. Does anyone have theories?
