    I've heard that it's not going to be another season full of some backwoods redneck clan. It's going to drill down and focus on the relationship between Raylan and Boyd.

    Some great, great lines from the dialogue in this one.

    Boyd: "I'm so hungry, I could eat the ass out of a low-flying duck."

    Dewey: "Any chance I can maybe jam one last bone in you?"

    Great start for the final push.

    I was so fucking excited to watch this season I couldn't contain myself. They also made it a full hour long if anyone didn't notice, added on 13 minutes. Lot's of great callbacks to the first season already, and there is going to be one more big bad coming in to really seal this up. I need to go back and watch that first season again, but man, this show is just perfect. I'm gonna miss it when it's over.

    I have not read the original story "Fire In the Hole" that Leonard wrote, which is the basis for the series. But, in that story and in the original script for the pilot, Boyd dies. They certainly made the right decision to keep him around for the entire series, since his tangling with Raylan the rest of the way is going to be epic.

    I just recently came to watch this show, and man, I do love it. I've always been a big Elmore Leonard fan, and Olyphant nails Raylan in my mind. I've really enjoyed the first two episodes of this season, episode three on tonight I think.

    Boyd is a fantastic character, as is Ava. Frankly, all the characters are fantastic. No one makes me laugh like Dewey Crowe.

    Shame he's gone, would have loved to hear more of his stupidity.

    If you've just come to the show, I am assuming you've caught up by watching the back episodes. If not, you must watch Season 3, Ep. 5 "Thick As Mud." It is absolutely one of my favorites. It features Dewey heavily, including one of my all-time favorite lines from him
    "You mean I had four kidneys?!"
    and Dewey trying to
    rob an appliance store (nobody uses cash there!) and a strip club (at 10 in the morning!)
    Just classic Dewey.

    It also features Maggie Lawson (from Psych) in a guest role, and a favorite moment from Raylan, where he
    groggily, because he's just been drugged, shoots the bad girl right through her dead boyfriend's body.

    I know that's a few season's back, but I used the spoilers anyway, in case people are catching up.

    Well,
    I think the marshals know good and well she didn't actually stab him. But, they want to keep using her to get Boyd, and wouldn't tell her that. And, are probably content that she's committed other crimes they can't prove, and "justified" in continuing to use her (and threaten her).

    This week's episode was absolutely fantastic. Just a classic showcase for the writers and actors that absolutely captured Elmore Leonard's spirit. If you aren't watching Justified, you are missing a real gem. Everything about it is very well done, down to the last detail. Even Raylan's cell phone is a BlackBerry, like the real marshals use. He could be on any brand phone at all, and it wouldn't change the dialogue or action, but that it matters to the EPs or whomever makes that decision, shows how well that show is run.

    I'm 1 episode back, but is anyone going to talk about the Wynn Duffy tanning scene? That dude is fucking fit for an old man. Shit, I wish I was in that shape now. Hitting the gym some more.

    Hey, if they gives you a chub, that's cool. I didn't so much pay attention to how fit he was or wasn't. But, that little scene - him just in the tanning bed, like of course he's in the tanning bed - is one of the things that's just so good about how they put this show together.

    Duke Davis Roberts as Choo Choo is so good. I wondered if that voice & cadence was totally put on. It is - saw another thing he was in using his normal speaking voice.

    Just caught up and I'm pretty excited at how everything is going. I started laughing my ass off when the train stopped and didn't hit Choo-choo. The scene with Boyd and Ava up in the woods was really well done and exciting, because you knew he was going to snap, you just don't how why or how. Also, curious to see what Ava's Uncle is up to, just seems like he's systematically going to completely try and fuck Boyd over. Surprised Boyd didn't have them on their feel with all this stuff.

    I didn't think this week's episode was a good, but there was lots of set up and subtext stuff.

    Complaints:
    Four different characters trying to wax poetic about the future and the past?
    The past is a shadow, always there behind you.
    - Markham
    The past and the future are a fight to the death.
    - Ava
    The past is a statement. The future is a question.
    - Raylan
    Well, don’t eulogize the past till the future gets its turn.
    - Boyd
    It sounded like the writers were trying to come up with a good "future/past" bit of dialogue, couldn't decide on which one to use, so they just spread them around.

    How does Markham have $10 million in cash in a vault in a pizza restaurant in tiny Harlan, KY and we've managed to never hear anything about him for 5 seasons?

    Raylan opens the foot locker with bolt cutters. But, yet, he's had to wait until just now finding a key to open the awful tool shed all this time?

    This is my favorite show on right now, and has been for some time; but, compared with the previous two episodes, this one felt forced, with dialogue and character interactions crowbar'd into spaces they didn't belong.

    All the scenes with Garret Dillahunt were a bright spot, including the unexpected one at Ava's house.

    Garrett makes a good badguy. I was weary of him playing this role at first, but I thought he nailed it. Sucked to see him go down like that, but he did. Also, I agree with some of the dialogue, it's silly.

    Yet, I do love how the big bad, isn't big and bad. Boyd is hustling and trying to pull something out of his ass as much as Raylan is chasing down all the options he has. Think it gives an interesting dynamic to the show. Also, I just can't seem to care about the old people love story going on in the background outside of Art's involvement. I really don't care about Markham or what's her face at all. Wynn Duffy being involved is also the only other thing that makes it interesting, but otherwise it's a big "meh" to me.

    And, wow, Jonathan Tucker as Boon? That scene in the diner was impressive, just waiting for the other shoe to drop.

    I did not see
    what Ava did to Boyd
    coming. Totally caught me off guard the way it went down.

    If you ever wondered if Justified is a modern Western, last night's episode had to push you over the edge. Jon Avnet directed it, and the scene with Raylan and Tim walking up to and into the cabin may be the best visuals of the whole series. Good grief. (And, Avnet was an EP for Black Swan? wtf)

    And tension? Mikey and Katherine in the Winnebago? Markham's hand on Katherine's throat? Boon and Raylan at the Portal? Mercy.

    I realize I'm the only one commenting, so I may be the only one watching. If that's the case, you people are missing some good stuff.

    What a great show. With only 2 episodes left, you know the action is going to really pick up. Which, is incredible.

    I cannot wait to see the inevitable Raylan-Boon showdown. If anything can top the Katherine-Mikey (oops, "Michael") matchup, that's going to be it.

    And what's going to happen when Raylan and Ava meet up, or Boyd and Ava, for that matter. Can. NOT. Wait.

    Raylan has shown off his quick-draw skills before, but I don't think he could actually outdraw Boon, the way it's playing out. So, something "different" will happen in that showdown - like when Danny fell in the hole he dug and stabbed himself, trying to test the 21 foot rule. We haven't seen Tim backwards hat snipe anybody in a long time. Maybe that'll come into play.

    A few episodes back, Katherine poured herself a glass from a bottle of Eagle Rare in the hotel room. So, I've got a bottle I'm waiting to open for the series finale. Can't wait.

    One of the best endings I can think of.

    Even though I knew the last line before it was spoken.

    We dug coal together.
