    I've been waiting for someone else to start a thread all day. Guess I'll have to do it myself. :)

    Raylan the Hillbilly Whisperer. Priceless.

    The scenes with Loretta are fantastic. She and Raylan are magic on screen together.

    Interesting to see how Boyd will be portrayed from this point forward. And how Ava will accept him.

    Don't cross Mags Bennett. Yikes!

    Very curious to see what Mags' plan is. The problem is that her subordinates are incompetent. In terms of the people surrounding her I might have to put Loretta at the top of the list in terms of intelligence and cunning. Doyle coming in behind her with Coover and Dickie way in the rear.

    I can't wait to see how the Loretta storyline shakes out.

    The cop-son seems fairly on-the-ball...

    I'm still not sure I buy that Ava would take in Boyd as a lodger.

    Mags is small-time, and smart enough to know that she's small-time. 2/3 of her offspring do not share her intelligence. Now they've pissed off a big-time crime organization plus the US Marshal Service. I guess we'll see just how smart she is!

    I was thinking Boyd has started talking like Raylan. Then Loretta started talking like Raylan. And they both pull it off quite well, but it would be nice if they could all be smart and cynical in their own particular way, instead of time-sharing a personality like that...

    Technically, they haven't really pissed off the US Marshal Service... yet. They've only gotten their attention. That's why the guy (state trooper?) had to pry Raylan loose with a crowbar to borrow him for a while.

    She is actually talking a lot more uppity than Raylan. Raylan was talking pretty simple and straight-forward. Cause hey, he is the hillbilly whisperer.

    They are stupid, but they are infinitely loyal. And that counts for a lot. She'll not likely put Loretta in charge of too much cause she knows that whole "killed your daddy" thing will eventually blow wide open in her face. So that will continue to be tricky and make things hazardous. Even a little girl can poison a glass of apple pie. ;)

    The actress who plays Mags is very strong. Ive enjoyed her in everything she's been in. I think they need to just focus on Raylin and Mags from here on out. I really dont need all of the other subplots.

    You do if they all circle around and intersect at some point. Never underestimate good writing. ;)

    It was fun to see Ale-8-One, a type of ginger ale made just down the road from here, get a cameo (a six pack - minus one bottle - was on the counter in Ava's kitchen). I wonder who had them shipped out to the set?

    I guess Mags believes "Spare the rod, spoil the child".
    The problem with the younger Bennetts is (like so many "2nd generation despots") they have always been "on top" and don't know the struggle it took to get there, and the real limits of their "scope".

    Elmore Leonard. He is a writer.

    Justified is based on his work.

    Anyone else think of Roadhouse when they heard that? (Specifically the Be Cool part)

    Well I guess that's better than getting turned on by a 14 yr old's dialogue. That's how the other guy got in trouble.

    Just remember, it's not the gasoline that catches fire. It's the fumes.

    Remember, this is Kentucky. She'd normally be married by now.

    Fastest hour on TV. Southland is a close second.

    I'm watching that very touching scene at the end with Raylan and Loretta thinking she's talking just like Boyd. I don't think that's a good thing. It's like the writer forgot he was writing for a 14 year old girl.

    As stupid as Dickie and Coover are, I'm surprised they have any intact bones left in their body.

    I was expecting one hammer whack not four or five.

    The Hillbilly Whisperer.

    I disagree. Can't have too much Boyd Crowder.
    And the Bennett plot line goes over and over to really dark places. I think it's easier to take with the breaks for other plotlines, some of which are comic relief (albeit dark comic relief).

    Makes you wonder how Dickie got that limp, huh?
