He did try for the handgun, but missed. So he lured him in with his chin and drewisms. I thought it was great.

This show does not have the bloody carnage of Downton Abbey

Correct. I just thought Lotto's response was funny.

Exactly.
Raylan recognized what he had done and called him a "badass."

So many standout performances in this episode to pick the best, but I think Tim's orchestration of the convoy standoff and his on-the-fly conversation with Colt takes the day. And I'm still having a hard time seeing Burt Hummel, the world's greatest dad to a gay kid, as a potty-mouthed, foul-tempered, homicidal mob enforcer. Mike O'Malley has been downright scary-awesome in his role on this show.

Loved the casual way Raylan talked the Detroit mobsters into leaving quietly with no gunplay, and the way Boyd just turned and walked away to fight again another day. As well as Ava not lighting Mr. Augustine's face up. Who saw that coming? How is Johnny is going to pay for his disloyalty? He's still family.

I didn't notice it until reading the recap above, but Boyd, Ava and Colt all "fade away" in this episode. Their last screen appearance is exiting to nowhere in each case. Kinda cool how they did that.

NO way I bought a cop or mob hitmen would do that.

Regardless of blood ties, he will pay with his life.

Uh, Johnny's crippled the way he is because of just that, family

That was the E.L.type of mexican standoff ,the mobster was gonna be shot 1st by Bob ,if everything went south , Raylan simply pointed that out , it was best if they all walked away alive ,seeing how Drew wasn't there anyway . rolleyes.gif

I agree. The scene with Boyd sitting in one corner of the room, with his gun, while Raylan and his gun were in the other was patented Elmore. Boyd, who was standing at the door between Bob and Raylan, understood that caving in under the circumstances beat being dead, so he took Raylan up on his offer to walk away. Picker, the head Detroit gun thug who was standing in the door with Boyd, didn't like it but ultimately was smart enough to walk away too. Just goes to show that in the Elmore universe, not every standoff results in bloodshed. Anyway, that was just one more great scene in an episode filled with them.

Considering that Constable Bob had the drop on Picker with not one but two guns, it was the right choice by Picker. Even Dewey woulda been smart enough to make that choice.

Good episode, but it wasn't as action packed as last week.

Colt is down by Tim, as expected.

How the heck do they tie this all up in one episode?


Is it tuesday yet?

Post mortem with Yost. Has some more than little spoiler stuff in it about the finale.

Wow, a lot of people here really didn't watch My Own Worst Enemy! biggrin.gif

I really like O'Malley and it's good to see him succeed. He seems like a nice guy, a Buffalo Tom fan and he proved in MYOE (way before Glee) that he could really act against type. O'Malley was the saving grace of My Own Worst Enemy and a certified spy bad ass. When thugs steal his wife's ring, he takes them out using dual pistols with ruthless (and cool) efficiency. The show was nonsensical but if you want to see him kick ass check it out on Hulu or somewhere. You can FF through Christian Slater's scenes. wink.gif

While I don't see Mike O'Malley as "that guy from Yes Dear" anymore, I still see Ron Eldard as the guy from "Bakersfield PD". Even after the great performance he put in and the other roles he's done!

I don't like letting Justified collect on my DVR because it puts me behind in this thread, but it is by far my most favorite show to view in uninterrupted chunks so the the story flows directly into the next episode. Overall this has been another ingenious, verbose, tense and amusing season. Filled with Western allusions, instant death, multi-crosses and engaging new characters. And another priceless Jere Burns expression, back when Stephen Tobolowsky was removed. Wynn really needs to keep more sane company! Great to see Limehouse return too. I had given up on seeing him again when he didn't appear in the early episodes.

The one thing that was a letdown was the identity of Drew Thompson. Like The Walking Dead (but not as blatant) the sudden omnipresence of the previously peripheral Jim Beaver, clued me in on his real identity pretty early on. If the show had kept him out of the main investigation (especially the numerous partnership scenes with Raylan) and just dealing with Ellen May it would have hidden his identity a lot longer.

Hopefully some people will be left standing next week. The recurring cast is getting much lighter with each season.

This is why I do not mourn the death of a television show for very long.

Whenever a show dies there is always a possibility for something as good or better to take it's place. If you asked me if I would have sacrificed Justified to the pilot gods to keep Deadwood on air, I would have a hard time saying yes now.

Which would readers in this thread sacrifice for airtime? If Deadwood had stayed on the air, Justified would either not exist or be a totally different look and feel.

This was the one time I didn't watch it. I want to go into next week without any preconceptions and let it take me where it will. But I gotta ask: Do you mean it doesn't look like its going to be a good episode? Or that something bad is going to happen to somebody we've grown to care for?

One thing that hasn't been mentioned too much...the Boyd/Ava love story is truely touching. There's almost something innocent and noble about how Boyd is willing to sacrifice everything for her.

This will get me flamed I'm sure. But I'd pick Justified over Deadwood in a heartbeat.

Exactly. Next week is going to be interesting. So many plot lines that needs closure.

There's some good gifs from this episode. A nice laugh reaction-gif biggrin.gif


Edit: Everybody in this show is great at acting. Superb stuff.

The former...the trailer hinted at something very implausible (which is an element that has been creeping into the show lately).

Me too.
The difference is I have more empathy for the characters in Justified.
Of course, YMMV.wink.gif

Deadwood. As much as I really like Justified, the Shakespearean writing on Deadwood struck a chord with me, and elevates it above Justified. Maybe Justified can get Ian McShane to play a central character baddie next year!

I've thought many times that Ian McShane would be the perfect Theo (rather than Arkin), as well as, having him around alot more. Al Swearingen was the bomb of a character, so despicable, yet so entertaining. You just had to like him.

Well - how about Boyd quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson: "Nobody can bring you peace but your self." It would certainly be interesting to be privy to Boyd's "back story" His vocabulary certainly seems at odds with his upbringing.
