There are mild spoilers in here, though, so do not read if you want to know absolutely nothing.

That is actually wild that they didn't know only a few episodes in advance how it was going to go.

I replayed Art's rant a few times. Just great stuff.

Oh, well. Nobody's perfect. And at least now I don't have to admit somebody's more clever than I am!

Another cheat was that Shelby was the foreman at the mine. Suddenly now he was the Head of Security.

It has bugged me how Shelby could just put on the sheriff uniform and be all up to speed on the law and what he could and couldn't do.

Yes. It is usually much better when there is one writer who writes out an outline for the entire show (all seasons), and also someone (or the same one) who writes an outline for each season. Then the writers of the individual episodes can fill in the details, sticking to the guidelines already written.

Although there's a HUGE difference between a show like BG (which is about a specific story arc) and Justified (which is, really, a sit-dram). For the most part, a show like Justified can get away with flying by the seat of its pants because it doesn't have a specific destination. The only time that can come back to bite them is at moments like this, when a subplot HAS a specific destination, and they find that the solution they come up with doesn't really match the route they took to get there.

But at least in Justified, the mystery of who Drew is isn't central to the show, so if they botch that storyline (as it appears they did) they don't botch the whole show.
