    OK, now we know that she really did take all the money...my question is: Why did they put it back? (instead of, say, burning it)

    When all the marshals went down to the cage to look for the money and didn't find it, the conclusion that they seemed to draw was that the money was sent back to the bank which then went under. Fine. Perhaps the question of how one bill got into circulation after all these years was still unanswered, but it's no big deal. The focus of the investigation would shift to who in the bank got the money and what happened to it. Certainly no one would have been looking towards Winona as a criminal.

    But now that they put the money back, all that has to happen is for the cage guy to open the new box and find all the money. He'll probably realize that it was the money that all the marshals were looking for and (presumably) tell them that he found it. But then, Winona has a big problem. The marshals (and Secret Service) will then wonder how one bill got from the cage into the pocket of the bank robber. Take the fact that Winona works in the building with the money and add in that she was at the (new) bank when it was robbed and all of a sudden she could be in trouble.

    Yeah, that was very un-Raylan-like in its stupidity. They certainly narrowed the field of suspects considerably...now it's clear that at some point the money vanished from the cage, and with all Winona's activity down there (and Raylan's odd behavior), it won't be too hard for them to narrow it down further.

    yeah, i would have preferred for Raylan to turn her in and have them deal with those consequences.

    I would suspect that this was just a one/two episode sub-plot and we wont hear anything about it again, even though Raylan's boss caught them in the cage unescorted.

    God I hope the stolen money storyline is over. Very, very weak by Justified standards. Perhaps they just needed more airtime to fill because they couldn't squeeze enough out of the Bennett storyline. Speaking of which...

    Boy am I ready for the Bennett storyline to take off. Now that the mining company is in the mix and is trying to get Boyd as their pointman this should get REALLY interesting.

    How damn stupid is Gary?

    Winona was left with a bag full of money that she couldn't spend due to the serial numbers having been flagged years ago after being stolen in a bank robbery. Plus there's the whole impulse-theft-that-I-wish-I-hadn't-done thing. So she returned it.

    I expect the evidence cage guy may find it and be tempted himself.

    I certainly agree that she couldn't spend it.

    However, she (or, really: Raylan) should have destroyed the money instead. There's no upside to returning the money...

    Yeah - I thought it was really stupid to return the money.

    They should have just burned it.

    End of story.

    Now you know it's gonna come back to bite them on the ass...

    I disagree. Evidence could have turned up that the money was not returned to the S&L. Also, evidence is misplaced in an evidence lockup all the time. It is easier to explain misplaced evidence than missing evidence to an auditor.

    The worse case scenario for a single missing hundred dollar bill (re: Winona) is a lot better than for the entire amount to be gone, destroyed and not recoverable. If they replaced the missing bill with another bill, then it would just be a case of a wrong serial number.

    The amount might be significant enough to bring in an auditor.

    BTW, The whole sequence was hilarious. That must be the first time (ever!!) that the Federal government has worked that efficiently (in ID'ing and tracking down where that bill came from). I was laughing the whole time.

    I love this show but this storyline is a Jump the Shark moment for me. I hope it gets back on track quickly.

    I've heard good things about Justified and I'm about to start watching it, but it's in the middle of season 2. All season 2 episodes are available on FX's website currently and I have the last few episodes on demand to watch. However, it's going to be a while before I can get around to buying and watching all of season 1.

    Can someone summarize the major plot points and characters from season 1 in a paragraph or two? Just enough to know what's going on in at the start pf season 2 and who everyone is.

    Good to see Rebecca Creskoff in the show, even though I doubt we will see as much of her as we did in Hung. I look forward to seeing how her character gets along with her new hire, Boyd. Should be a hoot.

    Yes, this new plot interaction is a welcome change from the weak Winoner currency thief subplot

    I like Boyd's "What the hell did I just walk in to?" look on his face when she told him why she really hired him.

    Hometown boy Raylan returns to Harlan county as a deputy US Marshal. He kills a lot of bad people, and has a lot of funny things to say while he's at it.

    Has a tendency to enter the back seat of the cars the crooks are using to spy on him. Says badass things in a funny way. Or funny things in a badass way.
