    Absolutely. His plan is for both of them to be free, which will be a lot easier to swing if he's not in prison himself.

    I think if he had to he'd give himself up. But I can't see him ever believing that he has to.

    By the way, the dead guy's girlfriend (oops, in this episode I'd better be more specific...the rich dead guy whom Boyd beat to death) was a very nifty bit of subtle writing/directing/acting. The way she conveyed that she wasn't especially bothered by the murder but was afraid for herself but was hiding it was nicely done.

    I suspect we'll find out she's seen some nasty business in her day back home.

    Watched last night. Great start. I wasn't too thrilled about the whole "Where's Waldo" mystery last season. Glad to have it back in it's full glory. Great, great cast. Good to see Natalie Zea back, at least a little bit. I've always enjoyed Michael Rapaport too.

    Good point. Why let us know about an unlicensed medical professional, who's willing to take a bribe to stay silent, if she's not going to get used sooner to later to patch up crooks.

    Is Paxton actually dead? I assumed so but then his wife said something like "I'll take care of you baby" near the end. Or maybe I'm not remembering it all correctly.

    She did. Could be prepping his body for burial, or talking about revenge, or maybe he is not dead. It was not clear.

    "I'll Take care of you" -- it has more than one meaning!

    It was all comedians, all the time. John Kapelos from Second City, real Canadian Dave Foley and Will (Curley) Sasso (and I will not be able to not see him as Curley) and Dave Koechner.

    I was convinced with all that talking about his daughter that Dave was destined to buy it.

    How about Latvian Doctor trophy wife, "Kill me or leave." We gotta be seeing her again.

    We never saw how Sammy had his downfall. The last we saw him he was landing in a bizjet and having his goons wipe out his subversive guy. How does he go to hiding on top of a wrecked Detroit tenement?

    Graham Yost is continuing the EXCELLENT job in channeling Dutch Leonard. That Coast Guard cop was pure Elmore, as well as more Crowes.

    The way Coast Guard guy bought it.

    The way Maldonado bought it.

    I wonder if Elmore Leonard saw this script.

    Look for a thread with the Cuban Maldonado family coming after Raylan and/or the Crowes, and we're off to Mexico.

    I too thought he was destined to buy it. I was half convinved he was going to get shot to death in his last scene with Raylan in the SUV. I didn't realize Michael Rapaport was going to be a regular at that point.

    Sammy was destined to fail. He was weak, unintelligent, incompetent, and clearly a bit nutty. We didn't really have to see it. The only reason he got to power is because Raylan outplayed Nicky Augustine. Sammy was doomed no matter what.

    Paxton was an idiot. I'd have commenced to whuppin' on him too and I'm not half the psychopath Boyd is.

    I kept waiting for the Marshall that Raylon was paired with to get shot or something. It seemed like something bad was bound to happen when he kept talking about how proud he was of his kids.

    I was sad to see Max Perlich's character buy it so fast. I've always liked that guy since I first saw him on Homicide:Life on the Street

    Yep, Jere Burns is a full castmember now. Your comment about them being partners brings up something that puzzled me about this episode. I haven't gone back and re-watched last season's final episode to see, but I thought that Boyd now worked for Duffy. Yet Duffy was the subservient one for almost the entirety of the episode (for example, with Boyd basically telling him they were going to Detroit).

    Speaking of Detroit, the Sammy and Picker relationship puzzled me, too. Sammy has always been portrayed as a bit of a buffoon, of course, but he is top dog. And Picker willingly went along with Sammy's order to ice Mike O'Malley at the end of last season. (During which scene, Sammy basically seemed in comfortable with being in the top spot.) Yet in this episode, Picker was ordering Sammy around like a kid, with neither of them acting like Sammy was actually the boss. (And this doesn't even consider the Picker double-cross, which hardly seemed necessary given how weak Sammy apparently is.) The way those two characters were acting threw me off so much that I was having trouble following the scene.

    The double cross was to save his own life, not because he need to off Sammy to take over or something.

    Do you think Alicia Witt's tramp stamp was real?!? I think they showed it briefly to convey that she was probably not a real lawyer.

    She said she was a paralegal.

    Those tramp girls in the pool had tramp stamps, too.

    How about Dewey, "GET A BUCKET!!!" I gotta believe he improved that.

    Did she say that in the diner when she introduced herself to Raylon? I thought she told her brother that afterward... My bad.

    She did say it to her brother, yes. The point of the tattoo, I think, was to reinforce that even though she is trying to break away from typical Crowe life, she can't escape where she came from in the end. That's one of Justified's main themes.

    You are correct about Boyd and Duffy. Duffy controlled the Eastern operations for Detroit, with Boyd handling Kentucky. I didn't find it so much subservient as... an understanding. That might not be the right way to put it either. Boyd knew what had to be done and Duffy knew it as well. Duffy was content to let Boyd do what Boyd does best. What I'm REALLY curious about is how their partnership moves forward in the aftermath of Detroit. This should be very interesting with Duffy being a full cast member this season.

    I could be wrong on this, but didn't Picker have an entire scene last year about not wanting to be top dog? He was very content to be a right-hand man. My take from it was that Sammy was an even bigger screw-up and blew things up even faster than Picker could have imagined and was doing his best to hold things together by taking over/directing Sammy.
