The big clue is after surviving all this time Arlo was killed right after the the ex sherriff found out he knew who drew thompson was. Good catch, philw...make that great catch cool.gif You might not be right, but its the best theory I've heard so far.

Previews are often deliberately misleading. Then again, it's only a theory based on what I've seen minus any previews. I think we'll all find out!

I can't recall which program, but a couple of seasons ago I recall an episode preview that included a scene that did not air until 2-3 weeks in the future. I kept looking for it in the next episode.

1. Browning to Boyd - "you best be prepared for me to get inhospitable
2. Raylan (?) Which one of these coincidences is just a coincidence?"
3. Boyd to Raylan after he notices Ava's engagement ring - "As onerous as our relationship has been lately, Raylan, you're on the guest list."
4." Sit your white collar ass down"
.

Ya missed the best one: "Jesus, I hope I got that right."

And Boyd doesn't say "onerous" (in number 3) he says "acrimonious."

You beat me to it. Raylan said that right after he had a shootout with and killed a guy wearing a deputy sheriff's uniform. Turns out Raylan was right, the guy wasn't a cop he was an assassin, but Raylan didn't learn that for sure until later. Anyway, I agree with you that it was the best line of the night

Yeah, you right. I try to take notes during the show to capture some of the more pungent lines, and did actually write down "acrimonious" but somehow when I entered my forum post I wrote "onerous." Boyd has a pretty sophisticated vocabulary given his upbringing.
Perhaps I can hire Ellen May to be my secretary and make sure I get everything right.biggrin.gif

Boyd is precise about his language, like someone who really wants to be seen as an educated man and knows that he is looked at as a hick. He emphasizes these words and says them like he is doling out some great pearl of wisdom. I recall in the previous episode "Money Trap" when the power brokers at the party used the word "placated" and they condescendingly asked him if he knew what that word meant. Boyd said that he did but that the correct word was "pacify." This is the kind of detail to character that makes this show one of my favorites on tv. I also recall last year when he was exchanging his extent of knowledge with Quarles talking about Faulkner's carpet baggers and such.

watched latest episode last night and holy moly... what a great one!

and great points everyone is making - didn't think of Sheriff as being Thompson but makes sense especially b/c he was asking so many questions about the widow.
post #2170 of 3237
As others have pointed out it's almost like they're trying too hard to point at Shelby being Drew - the clues haven't been all that subtle....so either they think we're idiots and need extreme handholding to get to the "Shelby is Drew" reveal - which would be strange for the otherwise high quality writing on the show - or it's a red herring.
post #2171 of 3237
Didn't the assassin that Raylan just shot at Boyd's bar mention the name "Shelby" on the phone when he was getting ready to execute the slurry-pond owner in the previous episode? I could have sworn that's what he said but no longer have that ep on the DVR. If so, what the heck does that mean?

I'm gonna' be pissed if Drew turns out to be somebody's heretofore unknown twin brother.
post #2172 of 3237
There would be some gaping plotholes if Shelby is Drew. But if any show could pull it off, it would be this one...I've got a feeling it isn't him though.The ex lawman in prison is still my #1 choice, but I'm pretty sure that will turn out wrong too. smile.gif Maybe I'm giving the writers too much credit, but I suspect its going to be a head slapping moment when its finally revealed who Drew is. It will be a total surprise but at the same time so obvious that I'll kick myself for not seeing it coming...

I don't recall that, but maybe I misheard.eek.gif
post #2174 of 3237
The other red herring was contained in the coming attractions shown at the end of the episode: the jailed former sheriff is shown in the back of a car saying to someone off camera "So now what Drew?" or something like that. Unless he's speaking into the camera as a mirror, he must be speaking to someone else.I guess it could be Shelby, but perhaps not. It's funny, the windows of the car in the background look a lot like Raylan's car, but might also be a limo.

What if Drew turns out to be a really neat guest star? I'd like it to be Burt Reynolds! No reason, except I think he'd fit perfectly into this show.

You need to spoilerize previews here for those of us who do not watch them. mad.gif

The rule is that everything shown in the time frame containing the current week's episode, including previews, is appropriate for discussion here.

I think he's too young to be Drew....plus the preview scene mentioned above kind of points to it being someone else.

For some reason, I kinda like that idea.wink.gif

When I first posted about this week's episode I forget to mention a wonderful scene. I loved it when Boyd educated the arrogant guys from up in the hills who not only underestimated him but left the impression they thought of him as little more than a redneck ignoramus. It was wonderful when Boyd explained to the boys that, while they may be criminals, he was an outlaw. To illustrate the difference, with Johnny's gun pointed at them, Boyd extorted from the boys the promise of a $100,000 payment from each and a Dairy Queen franchise. Wonderful stuff! You underestimate Boyd at your peril.smile.gif

Murdering a fellow who refused to dump toxic waste in order to scam the government to get Boyd out of a jam is hardly "justice" in my mind. I imagine quite a few people less callous than admirers on this thread would consider most of the motivations Leonard et. al. write into the show appalling and less than entertaining. With that said, I am sick enough to enjoy the mayhem thoroughly, and the more the merrier. So, what does that make us?

Of course it is...what I said was in jest.smile.gif

Perhaps so....
However, real Justified fans are people who could give a rat's a$$ about the sensibilities of those who find Justified "appalling."wink.gif

But that is now a huge debt that Boyd just incurred, which apparently ranks up their with our national debt-- considering the clout of this northern gangster. It will be interesting to see how this plays out down the road.

Like I said, I'm worried about Boyd..
post #2185 of 3237
Boyd's an outlaw. Living on the edge, with equal part wit and cojones, is what he does and all he knows. It's what attracted Ava to him. That's why I'm pretty sure there won't be a life of mild-mannered ice-cream making in their future, which is what made that snippet of dialog so unexpected and funny. This show.... smile.gif

Ah, you didn't read the story in my link about "Francis J. Burns, a suburban Dairy Queen operator who admitted being one of the area's biggest cocaine wholesalers, became a star informant and then double-crossed the FBI, has been jailed for 16 years by a federal judge." This happened in Philly in 1986.

Somehow I foresee a "Bonnie & Clyde" ending for Boyd and Ava. frown.gif

Nooooo!!!!!

Boyd's character is as integral to the show as Raylan's, so if the writers choose to kill him, they are taking a big risk with the chemistry of the show. Not sure they are willing to take that risk.

Oh, I have no doubt they'll kill him off. Just not until the series ends. And as justified by the ratings, that's probably many years off.
