Limehouse wasn't capable of doing the deed?
Was anyone surprised Lime wouldn't eventually USE that meat cleaver rather than merely threaten with it?
We didn't have any discussion of the fact that Johnny was colluding with Limehouse to take down Boyd either
We didn't, but who is surprised Johnny hadn't
there was only a vague supposition that Arlo may have fired the shot
See posts# 1462 & 1470 (where speculation of Arlo's current frame of mind made him capable of killing).
the idea that he thought he was shooting Raylan never even occurred.
Arlo taking the fall when it was almost solid that Boyd might be back
in prison was a last minute play too.
Boyd is too important to the show to "rot in prison," the show-runners would never allow it.
The writers were also ahead of the audience by having Quarles pull the backup from Raylan too which meant in this episode Raylan never fired a single shot. That in itself was against the grain of the show.
shoot someone every show.
Raylan is a federal U.S. Marshall, how long would it take for the character to lose its Suspension of Disbelief?

very well done IMO.
the obvious deep love between Eva and Boyd as well as the closeness between Boyd and Arlo, in sharp contrast to the turmoil in Raylon's life....
And that too.

I don't form my opinions

My opinions are my own.
