Justified Season 5 Finale Review – “Restitution” Ultimate Double Cross

After a lot of bumps this season with some mediocre episodes, Justified pulls a genius move with its season finale, “Restitution.” The twists, turns, and cliffhanger will leave your jaw gaping while you scratch your head at the audacity of the Justified writers. How in the world does such a crazy, haphazard season go from ‘what the hell are they playing at,’ to ‘hot damn, I’m SO ready for season six?’

The Whole Half. Review: Justified – “Weight”

Finally! After a few mediocre episodes, Justified finally pulls a rabbit out the old Stetson with “Weight.” This episode is jam-packed with twists, turns, and eye-popping surprises I didn’t see coming. From an old friend (or enemy, depending on who you are) wheeling into a family feud that’s been brewing since the beginning, “Weight” holds no punches in the violence department. Will these surprises be another anchor weighing Justified down or the invigoration it needs? Either way, I’m along for the ride.

Gumption and A-holes. Review: Justified – “Wrong Roads”

“Wrong Roads” isn’t a filler episode like “Whistle Past the Graveyard,” but it isn’t a great episode either. While “Wrong Roads” gives us some closure on a storyline or two, it drags out other storylines, making me roll my eyes with exasperation. I see some double crosses coming across the Mexican border in the form of the Crowes. But one of them surprises me by finally getting the gumption to do something drastic to remedy his situation. Way to go, Dewey (Damon Herriman)!

Drugs, Lies, and Break Ups. Retrospective: Justified – “Whistle Past the Graveyard”

“Whistle Past the Graveyard” should be an exciting episode considering Boyd (Walton Goggins) finally killed his last remaining blood relative. But sadly, it is not. This is a filler episode by every definition. There are some tiny nuggets of gold sprinkled throughout, but I’m not sure if I care anymore. Boyd only has his band of misfits to back him up but several new members may not be living up to their end of the deal. Can Boyd trust Daryl (Michael Rapaport), Danny (A.J. Buckley), and Dewey (Damon Herriman)? Not as far as he can throw them.

Season of the Back Stab. Review: Justified – “Raw Deal”

Ask and you shall receive. At the end of “Kill the Messenger,” I mentioned in my recap that I wanted to see the Mexican heroin deal go down, and for Boyd (Walton Goggins) and Johnny (David Meunier) to square off. “Raw Deal” gives us that and so much more. As much as I like Boyd to have antagonists nipping at his heels, his cousin Johnny is really becoming more of a nuisance than formidable adversary.

Stirring the Pot. Retrospective: Justified – “Kill the Messenger”

“Kill the Messenger” starts off with a punch in the face, literally. And if you think there was double crossing going on in “Shot All To Hell,” you ain’t seen nothing yet. In this week’s installment, there is goading, betrayal, and a lot of bruises. “Kill the Messenger” is a bit more complex in the story arcs as we are introduced to several new characters. Some of the plots are moving forward while others are stewing on the back burner.

Campaign of Harassment. Retrospective: Justified – “Shot All to Hell”

I must begin with an apology. I have made a grievous error. I’m such an idiot. In last week’s “Over the Mountain,” I confidently said Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) didn’t have anything to do with Nicky Augustine’s (Mike O’Malley) death at the airport but I was wrong. I went back to that episode and although Raylan didn’t pull the trigger, he should have stopped the massacre; he is a U.S Marshal after all. This secret leads us to the events in “Shot All to Hell,” during which Raylan is put in a compromising position after learning why Art (Nick Searcy) went to Detroit to investigate Sammy Tonin’s (Max Perlich) death.

Family Sucks. Review: Justified – “Over the Mountain”

After the revelations in “Good Intentions,” it seems things are aligned perfectly for catastrophe to strike. The events that occur in “Over the Mountain” may not all be dire, most are life altering, some even life stopping. Who knew Dewey Crowe (Damon Herriman) could pull off such a convincing bluff? He’s still a terrible shot but I never thought of Dewey as a killer. And since this season is supposedly about the Crowes, it is refreshing to see them take center stage in “Over the Mountain.”

From the Mouths of Babes. Review: Justified – “The Kids Aren’t Alright”

Women are causing some major issues in “The Kids Aren’t Alright.” From a young teen to full grown variety, seems like the men of Harlan, KY are getting an earful, and not all of it is pleasantries. “The Kids Aren’t Alright” is a good episode but it’s got a filler vibe to it. It sets up future episodes and provides some intriguing moments.

Disorganized Crime. Review: Justified – “A Murder of Crowes”

Justified comes back with a new season that’s fresh but still has that familiar feeling we’ve all come to know and love. “A Murder of Crowes” is chock full of dark humor, sarcasm, new characters, and lots of back stabbing, no good, old-fashioned double-crossing fun. “A Murder of Crowes” is a jolt of vitality for this tried and true show. Changing the scenery, adding dynamic characters, and injecting some intricate and sometimes complex story arcs are just what the doctor ordered.

Dead Bodies and…What? No Cliffhanger? Review: Justified, Season 4 Finale “Ghosts”

What happened to epic season finales? Especially for a show as ingrained with gun slingin’ and outlawin’ as Justified. To say I’m disappointed is an understatement. “Ghosts” doesn’t leave us with much of a cliffhanger, and we don’t we see any ghosts, either.

Pulled Pork and the Hooker with a Heart of Gold. Retrospective: Justified – “Peace of Mind”

“Peace of Mind” really captivated me. From unexpected revelations—like someone leaking information—to a stunning ending, this episode will surely widen some eyes. After learning the sex of his unborn child, you would think it would make becoming a daddy more real for Raylan; quite the contrary.

The Battle of Bloody Porch? Review: Justified – “Decoy”

Well, now that Drew Thompson, aka Shelby, is in Marshal custody, it’s an all out war between the Marshals and Theo Tonin’s men, with Boyd in tow. Although Theo is absent, his guys are brazen in thinking they are going to get into a stand-off with U.S. Marshals over a fugitive who’s been on the Feds most wanted list for over 30 years.

Guns, Lies, and The Real Drew Thompson. Review: Justified – “The Hatchet Tour”

Drew Thompson’s identity is revealed. That alone is the saving grace of “The Hatchet Tour.” While there are some key moments that stand out, like Constable Bob (Patton Oswalt) gunning it out with Lee Paxton and Gerald Johns, nothing can overshadow the revelation of the true identity of the infamous Drew Thompson.
