Having the two storylines is just plain good writing. By design the Raylan(ha!) mystery plotline is developing slowly, the show only offerring bits and pieces of where they are going to keep us intrigued. Having Boyd's storyline move more rapidly satisfies the viewer need to have plotpoints resolved while the overall story arc develops.It allows for self contained episodes while at the same time slowly revealing the overall season mystery.. Going by past experience, once the writers have us hooked on both plotlines the roles will be reversed. As Raylon's arc speeds up Boyd's will slow down, until they both come together towards the end. Thats how I see it anyways.
