Some deputies are trying to plant drugs in Shelby’s truck but he busts them and runs them off. He says he’s got only a couple years to live and wants to accomplish something before he dies, thus running for sheriff. Total crock of sh*t of course. In the world of Justified, everyone lies. Johnny Crowder suggests “putting the fear of God” into the sheriff’s sister in revenge. Full Story

Raylan’s living situation is always so depressing. I know it’s meant to be a statement about his solitary, no-frills character, but his series of sad motel rooms is bumming me out. He hides the gun that shot Gary in his A/C.So that guy Quarles killed was not the owner of the house he was squatting in, but a rentboy named Brady. Full Story

Justified Season 3 Episode 8 recapWe’re entering the home stretch on season 3. The situation in Harlan is heating up, beginning with Quarles’ gambit to make the FBI think Raylan is dirty. I’ll roll with this plot point but I must point out that in season 1, it was repeatedly stated that Raylan gunning down that dude in Miami made the national news. Full Story

Justified Season 3 Episode 5 recapAfter Rick Grimes threw down in the bar on Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, a friend and I discussed who would win in a fight: Officer Rick or Raylan Givens. Conclusion: In a straight-up brawl, Raylan, but if he feels cornered, Rick. Or, as my friend put it: Raylan, but if Rick managed to beat him it wouldn’t be surprising. Full Story

Justified Season 3 Episode 4 recapWe begin with Devil meeting with Quarles, who offers Devil a job. The title of this scene is “Devil signs his death warrant”. And I am just now realizing that Quarles is also the guy in the bowler hat from Captain America, which is going to affect how I watch that movie from now on. Full Story

Justified Season 3 Episode 3 recap Last week Carla Gugino appeared as Deputy Director Goodall, and some people were like, “Hey, why didn’t you mention that Karen Sisco was on Justified?!” Well, it’s because, due to a legal matter about who owns what Elmore Leonard property, they couldn’t call her “Karen Sisco”, thus the “Goodall is my married name” moment. Full Story

Justified Season 3 Episode 2 recapIn last week’s episode I counted Raylan’s shooting of Nix—the black hat—as a kill. However, several readers threw some shade on that and suggested Nix wasn’t actually dead. Since his fate was inconclusive, I’m down-grading his shooting to a half a kill, since at the very least Raylan dealt him a mortal wound. Full Story
