Justified - The Promise - Series Finale

Loved it. Was not what I was expecting, but really enjoyed how they ended things in all the storylines. More later I'm sure, just got done and might re-watch again before commenting further

Not my favorite finale. Not terrible but not up to the normal Justified standards in my book.

Loved it! That was excellent.
Nice closure on everyone, with lots of little surprises.

Boon was pretty quick. Terrible shot, but pretty quick.

I did not love Raylan in that hat, though.

I'm glad I re-watched the pilot episode last night - there were a bunch of shout-outs to it in the finale.

Also a few welcome mini-cameos from Ellen May, Limehouse and Wynn Duffy (currently surfing in Fiji) with the hilarious sign on his truck. All that was really missing was an actual Raylan/Boyd shootout, but instead we had Boyd preaching and a Raylan/Boyd prison conversation which is always worthwhile.

Nice wrap-up to an excellent season.

Thought it was really good. Boone goes for the head-shot! I was a little surprised how they seemed to wrap things up very quickly. But I liked the "four years later" and it was good to get some closure.

I had to laugh that it was Wynn who got out with the cash in the end! Too funny.

It was excellent. So the call out I made before about Boon's speech appeared to be true, he was going for the head shot......

Winona's man looked like a turd

Awesome ep, smooth fast wrap up then closure done well, very good stuff.

New hat sucks.

I'm paused at the "four years later" part.

Excellent.

And Wynn got the money, as I hoped.

Bummed he's not with Winona, however.

That was a classy and satisfying finale.

I was shocked to see the big blast of red coming out of Raylan's head in the shootout with Boone. Ava had to take off once she saw that Raylan was okay, or else she would die in prison. I did not expect her to have Boyd's son. I expected to see at least some grey hair on Boyd after four years in prison.

Loved this entire series.

That's Boon's hat, and no way would Raylan settle for it.

Wasn't it a surprise that Winona dumped Raylan again? The last we saw, they said they were going to make a try to live together.

I was waiting the "you have 24 hours to leave town" again.

Ava really thinks that Boyd can walk with the body count he has? How does he avoid the chair?

A center of mass snap shot from the hip is hard enough, much less a head shot.

I've not competed in IDPA/IPSC type shoots, but taken a few "how to" classes and watched a few. It ain't as easy as it looks. It's not that they don't take head shots, but it's on the 2nd shot of the double tap as the muzzle is coming down after the 1st shot's recoil taken at the center of mass. And in all cases, the sights are front and center in the field of view. And those that do that are the upper tier folks.

Excellent finale. Had some surprises I didn't expect. Wrapped everything up, some neatly, some not so neatly. Don't like the new hat. Liked the old one with the hole better. Liked the ending scene with Boyd and Raylan.

Satisfying finale. Left a lot of room for sequels and TV movies.
Agreed that Boyd should be on death row. He should not see freedom -- ever.

I loved the non-showdown between Boyd and Raylan. Boyd tried to make it sound like he would showdown with Raylan, but alas, out of bullets. Raylan kicks over another gun and says, "Try this one." That was great. Of course Boyd finally backs down. He didn't even have the guts to take a chance, no matter how small, for freedom. And then 2 minutes later he's got the bravado back telling everyone that when he gets out of prison he'll kill both Eva and Raylan.

That scene really highlighted just how much of a psychopath both of those guys are.

After I watched it I was underwhelmed but a few hours I like it more than I did last night. I would have liked to see more than just a cameo by Wynn Duffy. I wouldn't mind having a spinoff with his character. I like Jere Burns.

I was expecting Boyd to somehow break out of prison for one last confrontation with Raylan. I'm glad they didn't go that route. The final scene was fitting.

Actually he was saying that before, still during the standoff. I don't think it was a lack of guts: he was prodding and daring Raylan to shoot him. Boyd is pretty sure he won't win the gunfight so instead, if he's going to die he's going to show Raylan that they're the same: he'll force Raylan to shoot him down without Boyd drawing. Raylan always prides himself on justified shootings, although he provokes the other person into drawing first. Here Boyd is turning the tables and trying to provoke Raylan into shooting without justification. But Raylan doesn't take the bait.

The new hat is a tribute to Elmore Leonard who hated Raylan's hat and wanted him to wear the hat you saw in 4 years later.

They bypassed lots of stock endings and some "we're just SO clever" wildcards to make a nice capstone to six years. Unlike some series that started out excellent but the writers got too cute with the wrap up or simply had no clue how to end it (See "LOST"), Justified went down smoothly like a fine cask aged beverage.
Kudos to the writers, the excellent cast and of course to Elmore Leonard.
Epic.

More than satisfactory finale to one of the all time greats. Wynn Duffy spinoff is all setup... it just takes one signature! We have lost too many great shows over the past 12 months.

Ah... Boone's hat.

I did love the line he gave Rachel about "It fit". His lines are just so badass.

...and a class act for Raylan to tell Boyd that Eva is dead.

She ran on him three times, he doesn't owe her any favors. And you know Raylan is the type that won't even tell Eva that he did it.

You're correct on the hat. It bugged me that the hat had some kind of green day-glo sticker on the right side of the brim. I think that Raylan would have hung the hat with the hole on the wall and just bought another Stetson.

Yeah, it was an Elmore ending where our hero(es) survive the final shoot out.

Boyd had been shot on the same spot on his chest so many times the surgeons should just have installed a zipper to allow easy bullet removal.
