Nobody said Limehouse would kill or even pay a part in the death of Quarles. At all.

An episode or two back Lime told Q face-to-face not to screw around with him or face a terrible ending.

The look on Lime's face when he saw Q last night was the look of a man who has made up his mind to kill someone.

I don't think so...Boyd seemed very surprised by Arlo's "confession."

Quote:


Starting last week when Arlo called Boyd "Raylan," there have been several scenes where Boyd was kind of kissing up to Arlo, and of course the Boyd/Raylan conversation of "family."

It seemed to me Boyd was being genuine.
He was well aware Arlo was slipping....

Nice one.

Great interview.
It's interesting how he validated much of this thread's speculating over the season.

Arlo wasn't lying when he said he shot "a cop in a hat", but he also didn't think it was Raylan when he pulled the trigger. Recall that earlier in the episode Arlo said he "heard a trooper got shot", and was glad it wasn't Raylan. That prompted a heartfelt conversation between he and Raylan that was pretty out of character for Arlo. I think he was shaken that it could have been Raylan and was genuinely relieved it wasn't. But yeah, it may not have stopped him anyways and Raylan knows that.

But considering Arlo is a career petty criminal, it's understandable that he might look at Boyd as more of a son to him than Raylan. That was a pretty big sacrifice he willingly made - he'll likely spend the rest of his life in prison (and going up for two murders instead of one probably won't make any difference). And it means Boyd is free to wreck more havoc in Harlan County next year! Yea!

Loved the line where Boyd told Ava the cops would know he would always come back to her. Awww. Next year: full on Bonnie & Clyde for those two lovebirds. And now that we know Johnny has betrayed Boyd, how long will it be before Boyd finds out?

I think Limehouse will continue to be a recurring character on the show. He's just too good a character to lose, although now that Mag's money has been revealed to be with Loretta he may not have a regular presence.

Another great season for one of TV's best shows. I think back to the pre-season tease with Raylan and Boyd doing a Butch and Sundance shootout thing and how it foreshadowed the fact that they were going to be battling a common enemy, although not that literally. Very cool.

If you really want me to be EXACTING, I'll gladly drop the phrase "last week" and insert "previous posts in this thread."
But that is as far as I'll go.

I am not going to spend my any more of the time I have left on Earth to accommodate further.

I agree, it also shows Arlo's mental capacity is denigenerating quickly.

Hard to say when, other than most likely next season; but when he does, Johnny will be in for a drop (without the safety equipment).

The Arlo question is more complicated than that. He may not have been sure if the cop in the hat was Raylan, but he was traveling in conflicted directions. He was protecting Boyd and didn't particularly care if it was Raylan or not. He probably figured it was. It's discussed here in detail...

post #1539 of 3221
Just a thought, but Arlo was on his meds when he copped wasn't he? So he could recant ...

That was a great interview at the Wrap. I liked that he pointed out that Boyd was a criminal and that criminals were always less intelligent than the good guys in EL's books. I had been noticing that they seemed to be playing down Boyd's cleverness while simultaneously emphasizing his basic criminality the last few episodes. I think maybe they're worried about the show being a bit too clever, a bit too superhero-ish.

The facial expressions from Tim when Limehouse and the guys got the drop on him was excellent - mister "always has an answer" had none and it really messed with his mental state as conveyed by TO.

I was disappointed though, that he seemed to think that the ending scene with Winona was when the audience was supposed to get it (the hat.) At least he questioned it being hitting the viewer over the head. I took the scene at face value, extending the relationship with Winona etc., but it's hard to believe they thought they had to hit the hat again just to be sure people got it. One of the issues the poor writers and show runners have to deal with all the time I suppose.

Excellent interview. Lots of little insights into plot and production.

I'm also glad Yost singled out Jere Burns' reactions for his favorite moments. Like I've said previously those moments were some of mine too. The opening to the finale was an epic example.

My take on Ava hitting one of her "girls"; It wasn't because she has gotten hard. It was because she was thinking the girl had put Boyd in danger. It was the scene I realized just how much he meant to her. Up till now, I thought there was a chance Boyd was just a rebound romance after Raylon and that she still loved Raylon. This episode cleared it up. As for Arlo, the way I see it is it was a gut reaction by him. Given a choice brtween Raylon and Boyd, he chose Boyd. Thats how Raylon saw it too, which is why he was so shaken.

In EL's latest book, Raylan, neither Boyd nor Raylan are as smart as in the first 2 seasons of Justified.
IMO, much of this season was influenced by the novel.
There is no doubt the writers had it in hand when sitting down to write the season.
Approx. 2/3 of the novel is the 3rd season of the show.

This season's Raylan (the character) is not nearly as fun as the 1st two.
He is not as engaging as he once was...much more quiet, more remote.
TO certainly was EL's "Raylan" this year, right down to a tee.

Not everyone is as sharp as AVSers...or as humble.

I love this show.

Most of the villains end up dead, or in jail, and Raylon continues on pissed at the world.

i loved how limehouse kept his money in plain site in a "piggybank" and Boyd ended up on top and free.

I dunno about how Quarles could get his arm chopped up with a butchers knife so easily. The human arm can't be chopped off that easily.

He showed off his trick gun too early I guess.
post #1544 of 3221
The only thing that bothers me is do real Marshals have this much power?

I thought they only go after fugitives. They don't interfere with the local police.


Still one of the best shows on TV though.

Your post made me curious so I went back and watched the part of the scene in which Limehouse cuts off Quarles arm in slow motion. I thought it was entirely credible. First, Raylan had Quarles forearm firmly under control; second Limehouse's weapon was not a butcher knife, it was a large meat cleaver; and third, Limehouse had a running start and swung the cleaver with both hands, using everything he had. I was convinced.

As a general rule: YES.
However, every law enforcement officer in the nation takes an oath to "uphold the law."

We have EVERY reason to believe Lime would have the sharpest blades around....

As much power as CSIs doing everything by themselves? Not that I compare the two shows (Justified is way better, CSI just a guilty pleasure, guess i became attached to the characters ober the years) but in terms of the lead characters handling much of the stuff they probably wouldn't do in real life they are similar.

Great finale!

Limehouse is not a skinny guy. That's a sharp meat cleaver used to slice hogs which are lots more massive than a human arm. Put your 200+ LBS body weight into a full body swing with a cleaver and an arm comes off. Not that I for one have done it.

Limehouse is clever hiding the $ in pig carcasses. That way any Muslim terrorists attacking the Holler will never get it.

Really enjoyed the final episode, Raylan duel wielding pistols was prety good. My only issue was the whole arm cutting off, no way would that be possible in one swipe of an arm in mid-air, now if it was on a chopping block and they put enough force, maybe, but not in the air like that. Other then that, excellent expisode, looking forward to next season.

You must not watch 'Spartacus', then, or the whole array of films and shows where entire limbs and even heads get lopped off with a single swipe of a sword. Seems pretty easy to do if your abs are sufficiently ripped.

My take on Arlo. He's going down for Tom's murder and he knows it. One more murder on top of killing the trooper really isn't going to matter. I believe he was sharp and knew exactly what he was doing as Boyd had made him take his meds. He knows Boyd will do what he can for him and can do it better on the outside. Boyd will put the puzzle together pretty quick next year and take out Johnny.
Arlo let Raylon know a cop in a hat got shot. He was not on meds when he shot Tom and wasn't thinking straight then as Boyd was out and in no danger. Arlo in a deranged state was shooting Raylon IMO. Maybe afterwards when he talked to Raylon he had regrets and was relieved he didn't shoot Raylon.
Whether Limehouse would be able to completely take off Quarles arm.... hey the guy pounds through bones everyday with a cleaver and with his life at stake I think its a least plausable. Maybe Mythbusters can take a look

Graham Yost is a big fan of Mythbusters. That's a great idea. Send him an email and I'll bet he'll have them set it up...free publicity. Now as to voluteers...

Please everyone,

It's Raylan. Not "Raylon" (which sounds like something you'd make a golf shirt out of).

There was a show on Spike TV a couple of years ago called "Deadliest Warriors."
It basically tested the formidability of ancient weapons.
Often, deceased pigs or cows were used to judge the abilities of blades and other pointy things.
After watching the show, IMO, a meat cleaver wielded by an expert can easily hack off a limb.

Loved the finale.

... and to address earlier posts, the only appropriate drink for this show is Bourbon.

Did Limehouse catch Quarles at the elbow joint? Butchers are good at that, and it's a lot easier than hacking through bone.

OK, OK, to be honest...you're right: Jack and Bud would be the most authentic.
However, I have made a career out of going against the grain.

I am not sure, but it looked fairly close.
