    Whether the girlfriend was involved in the robbery or not, the parole violatin' ex-con has to be dumber than Manti Teo to steal from a US Marshall that he knows knows that he's violating his parole and had given him a free pass to get out of town by sundown. I know criminals are always stupid in Elmore Leonard's books but that's really stupid.

    The bag Arlo has was never in the cul-de-sac. It containted the personal effects Drew Thompson took off Waldo before chunking him out of the plane.

    I want to know why Drew Thompson didn't destroy it. Or if he trusted Arlo to do it and Arlo kept it as very dangerous leverage.

    Hilarious. Yup THAT stupid seems to exceed the Elmore threshold.

    Guy's tough with his fists, but bringing fists to a gunfight...

    It shouldn't be a spoiler at this point but JIC
    It also echoes back to the very first scene in S01E01 when Raylan told a guy to be out of Miami by some time and ended up shooting him, thereby earning the trip back to Kentucky.

    I figured the guy "I couldn't knock down with a hammer" will pop up again soon.

    That FBI agent came out of nowhere and went away kinda quick. Other than it's Raylan's World, Raylan watching an FBI agent off himself should not be an "oh well" incident.

    Well, in the past there have always been consequences when Raylan's been involved in a death, sometimes long-lasting consequences. So I suspect we haven't heard the last of the matter.

    (That's one thing I like about this show...it takes shooting people seriously.)

    I felt like it was just a quick way to show us how connected Theo Tonin really is. We knew he was dangerous before, but being that connected is serious.

    Felt the same way about Art's speech to the marshal who had his eye on Art's position in the future. Quick way to tell us about Raylan always being trouble and how now even Rachel and Tim are on the edge.

    Hi ClutchBrake,

    Thanks a bunch! Now that you describe it I do remember it. Although I try to watch as intentively as possible as I really do enjoy this show, every once in a while my mind wanders and I miss some info like this.

    "So when Wyatt Earp here did the same thing?"
    - I figure you're redeemable.

    They're finally addressing that US Marshalls don't do much of that stuff other than track down fugitives.

    One thing: When pilots like John Denver have their pilot certificates or pilot medical certificates revoked the FAA will request that the paper be turned in, when it isn't they send the US Marshalls to confiscate it. That could make a nice plotline.

    Interesting. . . .that could have been the source of Art's original involvement with Waldo and Drew.

    It makes it look like a robbery to any police investigators.

    On money he can't report as stolen becuz he got it from an activity he is prohibited from doing.

    the snake thing was almost funny when he was laying down with it hanging off his face..i couldnt help but think 'snakes in a tent' should be the next big hit movie.

    they do appear to be an effective theft deterrent though. wonder if anyone's tried them in real life :)
