Justified > Justified Review: I Love It When A Plan Almost Comes Together > Comments Page 2
Well, if you read the credits, Olyphant was BEHIND the cameras a lot on this episode. Anyway, I thought the episode was terribly convoluted, although I suspect that was exactly the idea - a real spiral. Personally, I think Raylan has pissed off so many bad guys, it's time HE gets seriously hurt, not poor Tom (I sure hope he's only wounded, not gone). I suspected all along that Mags was taking care of Loretta(she had disowned Dickie,the only Bennett left), and that's where Limehouse's "ethics" take over. He will honor his commitments, good or bad. I do love the fact that Raylan is letting her keep the money. Anyway, I hate to see the season end, and will be looking forward to the next one. Can't wait to see who survives THIS season. And please, Neal McDonough so deserves an Emmy for his portrayal of Quarles. I wish his character could stick around. The creepiest bad guy yet. Thanks for the fun!
Outstanding episode. It was unpredictable. I never saw most of it coming. I loved all the machinations and shifting alliances. I was surprised when Boyd called out Errol who I had believed really was double crossing Limehouse. I was also surprised that Loretta had the money although I should not have been. Mags owed her and she paid that debt. Duffy made the same mistake that Boyd did not killing Quarles right away. Both Boyd and Duffy over played their hands with Quarles.
Arlo calling Boyd, "Raylan" and then hallucinating about Helen was very sad. He is not the nicest man, but to see him slowly unwind is difficult. I can see him shooting everyone in the season finale.
Ed, ITA. The writers figured out earlier than most that the show needed strong characters other than Raylan to make it work. Walton Goggins is a fine actor. He makes Boyd a compelling character to set against Raylan and the other villains. It works because despite Raylan "dislike" of Boyd, he is obviously still hi
@CKC Your way off base when it comes to this show. Walton Goggins i.e. Crowder, more than picks up the slack when Raylan isn't on camera. Did you watch the 1st season when the show floundered badly for the 1st 6 or 7 eps till they decided to bring Walton in full time?? Those two have some great on-screen chemstry. They remind me a bit of Mackey and Vandrell. Goggins is an outstanding actor and brings out the best in the people he works with.
This was probably my favorite episode of the season up to this point. I loved it, to be honest.
Seeing Arlo drop in senility is sad, but so beautifully told, and when he called Boyd "Raylan" I felt it was one of the best scenes in the series, and you could see the change in Boyd's demeanor when it happened. He saw how far gone Arlo really was at that point.
Second, I really love Limehouse's character. Throughout the season you think that he has this big plan for his enterprise and Mags' money, but the truth is he wants to be left alone, and he wants things to go back to the way it was, and Raylan is all too happy to let him do it. Loretta having the money was a nice touch and made a lot of sense, Limehouse was simply fulfilling a promise made to Mags with Loretta having the money.
Over the past two seasons I've noticed that out of every group of "antagonists" one becomes a part of the major cast member, originally with Boyd, and then with Dickie. I'm interested in seeing if t
Great episode....but to answer you're question why Loretta's back, Mags probably instructed Limehouse to keep the money safe for Loretta...much wiser than leaving it to Dickie Bennett.
Ok this was the worst Justified episode to date. I have to wonder if the writers remember the focus of the show. Anyone notice what this episode was missing. RAYLAN maybe. I estimate he was on screen maybe 10 minutes and that might be generous. They should change the name to Hillbilly Outlaws. I don't know about anyone else but I fell in love with Timothy Olyphant's cool laid back portrayal of Raylan Givens. His wit. His charm. The seething current of anger right underneath the surface. Where has that guy gone? The story used to follow Raylan as he navigated his way through the latest bad guy ploy. Now we follow the bad guys. And there are so many bad guys we can't keep them straight and the plot doesnt' seem to be able to either. It seems the new goal for Justified is how can we top the last bad guy. That doesn't bode well for the future. This show just flounders when Olyphant isn't on the screen. It has no focal point. And if you just tuned in you wouldn't have a clue that
