Justified Season 6, Episode 11 recap It’s the third to last episode of Justified ever, and damn if this show is not slowing down. This is an all-time great episode, and one that introduces a new fear for the finale—that Raylan will live, only to go to jail. Raylan has always operated right on top of the ethical line between lawman and outlaw, which leads to Vasquez openly accusing him of being dirty—again. Full Story

Justified Season 6, Episode 10 recap. This is the most stressful season of Justified, bar none. There are just four episodes left and you can feel everyone getting that much more desperate as plans unravel. In this episode, things go sideways for pretty much everyone. Let’s start with Wynn Duffy, exposed last week as the rat in the Grady Hale case. Full Story

Justified Season 6, Episode 9 recap.  Wynn Duffy is the rat! OF COURSE HE IS. In retrospect, who else could it be? He mentioned being around back when Grady Hale was killed, and sure enough, the unsealed files from Simon Poole’s original investigation reveal that Wynn was his CI. With Ava’s loyalty wavering, Raylan, Brooks, and Art visit Wynn and flip him to their side. Full Story

Justified Season 6, Episode 8 recap.  In the history of Justified bad guys, there’s Mags Bennett and everyone else. No one has ever matched Margo Martindale’s performance as the moonshine matriarch of Harlan County, but this season’s roster of heavies is pretty damned close. Full Story

Justified 6.7: “Commitment. Trust. Loyalty.”

Justified Season 6, Episode 7 recap We’re officially halfway through the final season. IT’S NOT ENOUGH. So much of Justified has been defined by allegiances and legacy, and now more than ever a person’s loyalty is what matters most. Ty Walker is injured and on the run, and his Tigerhawk crew is no more. Full Story

Justified 6.6: “They don’t know crime”

Justified Season 6, Episode 6 recap Well that escalated quickly. In that way that it has, just when you think you’ve figured out how Justified is zigging, it zags and the board changes. Following Ava’s attempt to run away, she, Raylan, and Boyd have a tense confrontation at her house. Full Story

Justified 6.5: “What you and me started”

Justified Season 6, Episode 5 recap. After last week’s most excellent episode, this week we take a slight step back. It’s not a bad episode at all, it just doesn’t have the same urgency as last week’s. The main things that happen, plot-wise, are that Ava attempts to bail—again—and Boyd thinks he has a way into the pizza vault that involves Ava’s uncle and a methane deposit. Full Story

Justified 6.4: “That’s when you get lost”

Justified Season 6, Episode 4 recap In its final season, Justified is firing on all cylinders. This episode has everything—Raylan in tense stand-offs, apple pie moonshine, dumb*ss criminals getting themselves killed, Wynn Duffy and Boyd Crowder bantering, Gutterson. It’s just about a perfect episode. Full Story

Justified 6.3: “It don’t get any easier”

Justified Season 6, Episode 3 recap. The dialogue on Justified is always good, but this episode was SPECTACULAR. This episode includes the line, “I’m going to shoot your dick off,” which has to be one of the top-five Justified one-liners of all time, although Ava telling the Marshals she had to puke was also golden. Full Story

Justified Season 6, Episode 2 recap. Two episodes into the final season of Justified and I'm strongly reminded of the beginning of season four when the Drew Thompson mystery was laid out. If Justified can go out on a note as strong as season four, I will be very satisfied. We start by officially meeting Garrett Dillahunt's black hat, Ty Walker. Full Story

Justified Season 6, Episode 1 recap It’s the beginning of the end and I am not remotely ready. As anxious as I always get for Justified to come back, this time it’s bittersweet, because this is the final season. Last season was a mixed bag—not as bad as some people said, but not as good seasons 2 or 4. Full Story

Timothy Olyphant before the end

Here is Timothy Olyphant, handsome and low-key as always, at the Clippers game last night. Olyphant was not at the People’s Choice Awards. He doesn’t court that vote. It’s one of my very favorite things about him. My absolute favorite thing about him, though, is Justified which begins its final season later this month. Full Story

Justified 5.13: “The bodies of those responsible”

Justified Season 5, Episode 13 recap. SPOILERS We’ve come to the end of another season of Justified and the body count is high in Harlan County, even if, by some miracle, Raylan doesn’t actually add to his own tally. Not directly, anyway. Instead, he sets things in motion that end with Ava free from jail but living under his thumb and Wendy Crowe finally stepping up to the plate for Kendall. Full Story

Justified Season 5, Episode 12 recap. Penultimate episode of the penultimate season. We’re into SPOILER territory. We’re almost at the end of the road, which means that a lot is happening and it’s happening fast. The Mexican cartel is gunning for Boyd, the Marshals have declared open season on Crowe, and Ava needs to get out of prison, like now. Full Story
