While most of Justified‘s fifth season was somewhat hit-or-miss, the show really got its act together towards the end of the run, and while “Restitution” tied up some loose ends it was an excellent place-setter for what should be an electric final showdown between Raylan and Boyd. Raylan’s “try Kendall as

You got to give it to Justified because it can really make things interesting during the final stretch. While I didn’t love everything about “Starvation,” I have to admit that it successfully built off of the tension that was created last week and got me excited for next week’s finale. Everyone was

It may have taken a while, but Justified finally got interesting in “The Toll,” and that’s probably because there were actual stakes that made all of the twists feel… well, justified. After tangling with the Crowes all season, Raylan asked Art to protect Alison, and the grizzled chief was doing just that

While watching “Weight,” you could see all of the pieces being moved for the endgame, but so far this season’s wasted so much time getting to this point that it kind of fell on deaf ears which is kind of a shame. Dewey took off with half of Boyd’s dope

While there were some things I liked about “Wrong Roads,” it ultimately felt busy and continued to keep the season from making any real progress. Boyd was back in Kentucky and his boys had to get the heroin back to Harlan while he had to put up with Daryl’s power

Apologies for another abbreviated recap for “Whistle Past the Graveyard.” Raylan spent most of the episode with Wendy as they searched for Kendal who ended up in the wake of the wake of an estranged family member, Boyd and his crew tried to get their way back into the States

I know that I’ve been mostly lukewarm towards this season of Justified, and while I didn’t love everything about “Kill the Messenger,” I have to admit that it was the first episode that made me think that I could get on board with where the story’s going.

After a few brief scenes in last week’s Justified, Raylan and Boyd were back in their separate corners juggling all of the balls that have been thrown at them this season which made “Shot All to Hell” a mixed-bag of an episode.

**SPOILERS AHEAD** I’ve been waiting all season long for Raylan and Boyd to hook up on Justified, which finally happened in “Over the Mountain,” and they’re moments together were great but they were surrounded by so much junk that it was hard to really enjoy the episode. It was revealed

Much like last week, only some of Justified’s “Good Intentions” worked for me, and unsurprisingly the stuff I did like involved the man in the cowboy hat.

I’m back just in time for the Justified season five premiere, and the FX drama opened up with the perfectly sufficient “A Murder of Crowes” which did a decent enough job at setting the table for what’s to come but not much more than that. Most of the episode took place outside
