It's hard to believe, but there's only one episode of Justified left, and then it's gone for good. Six seasons is a pretty good run, especially these days when television shows don't seem to have the same longevity they once did. But still, it's going to be hard to let go.
I remember the first time I saw the trailer for Justified. We were at the theater, and they ran an ad for it before the coming attractions, and my first thought was seriously? Commercials here? So I wasn't kindly disposed to want to watch the show. But the next time we went to watch a movie, we saw the ad again, and it started to grow on me, and we decided to give it a try. We haven't missed an episode since.
**SPOILERS AND SPECULATIONS AHEAD**
Boyd Crowder (Walter Goggins) has certainly has his share of ups and downs, but like the Energizer bunny, he keeps on going. He's been doing his damnedest to get Ava out of prison, also to make the big score he's always dreamed of. This season, he sets his sights on a very wealthy man named Avery Markham (played by Sam Elliott). Markham has ties that stretch to another familiar face - Wynn Duffy.
Raylan is determined to bring Boyd down this season, and he's not above taking matters into his own hands, doing things in his own way, which often puts him at odds with the Sheriff's department, particularly his boss, Art Mullins. Art isn't going to cut Raylan any slack, and he's got his eye on him.
Remember Dewey (I have four kidneys?) Crowe. He's been providing comic relief from the
I shouldn't have been surprised when Boyd blew him away, but I was. Rest in peace, Dewey, you poor fool.
Remember Bobby Quarles (Neal McDonough)? He was one wacky guy with a great ass who was cut
This series has been excellent from the beginning, with an ensemble cast, especially Timothy Olyphant. Justified awakened my interest in his films, and I've watched more of them, including Hit Man (which I own), and Die Hard 4. I'm sure he'll do something else, but it won't be Raylan Givens, so it won't be the same. Not to say I won't watch whatever he does next.
Well, tomorrow night is it, the end of a good run. I'll have some comments, probably Thursday. But damn, that's one good series. It's gonna be missed.
Especially you, Raylan.
