    Less Wynona and more Boyd :up:
    I did like Raylan's response during the town meeting. "But we get overtime, and get paid 52 week a year..."

    Wonder what'll happen at Mag's party, and what Boyd figured out about the Bennett's plans.

    My first thought was that she didn't want the mining company getting near her "farming" operations, but Boyd said that the mining company pretty much owned the entire mountain top, and I"m guessing that the "Bennet Farm" wouldn't be near the top of the mountain. My guess is that they want to expand the distribution part of their business and want the land for a helipad.

    All I know is that Coover(sp?) is going to get one serious butt whuppin' sometime soon. Hope he gets shot a couple times too for good measure.

    I'm glad that they wrote Art smart enough to know that Raylan and Winona were doing something awfully fishy in the vault.

    Well, Raylan has already said Art knows. I guess the question is what he's going to do about it, and how this is going to affect their relationship.

    I do love how this show does not shy away from the consequences of people's actions!

    My take on Meg's plans. Thars gold up in them hills! :) Meg's probably wants to control all the land thru which an access road could be built and thus exact a royalty for traffic.

    Raylan got whupped again. He needs a better option between a handshake and Death...

    Yes he does. (But as a character I kind of like that he a bit deficient in that area)

    Sometimes it seems like he's just looking for a good whupping. When he needs to be, he's brutally effective. But when he picks a fight for the sake of picking a fight, it never ends well.

    I don't understand why he didn't arrest him for assaulting a marshall. Or just shoot him.

    Because it wasn't business, it was personal.

    Plus he put away his badge and invited him to attack him, presumably without consequences. It would have been a pretty crappy stunt to do that and then arrest him when it didn't turn out the way he wanted to.

    I would have loved this show forever if Ava had shot Coover after he said "you shoulda killed me". Why not? He was in her house. That was about my favorite scene in Firefly (I wish you wouldn't'a said that). Ah, what the heck. I love this show forever anyway. Ava shooting the whatever-it-was in the bag was almost as good: "What is that?" BANG!

    :D :D :D :D

    Well, it could be just a big case of guilty conscious. Folks tend to think others know of their bad deed when they really don't know anything.

    But we've seen Art give the same looks to Raylan that Raylan's seen, and we don't have a guilty conscience. ;)

    I wasn't watching the clock, so this episode surprised me when it ended, I was so ready for the party.

    Raylan was looking at a map when he figured out her plans. We just saw her in the town meeting where she said she'd buy anyone's property to keep them from selling to the coal company.

    I think she's using her pot money to buy up a strategic portion of the land. Not to block the coal company, but to eventually sell it to them at a tidy profit. So she first appears to be owning a lot of "worthless" land that she's going to just hold on to but will be end up very valuable when lumped all together. Maybe blocking ingress/egress or something.

    Forget it Jake, it's Harlan County...

    I have 3 huge questions:
    1. Why does he insist on getting his arse kicked by losers? Self punishment?
    2. Why are we 8 episodes into the season and Raylan has yet to shoot anyone?
    3. What. the. hell. was in that bag that Ava shot???

    With mountain top mining, they demolish the mountain top and push the "spoil" into a nearby valley. This typically either blocks streams or fouls them beyond recovery.

    My guess is that the mining company owns the mountain top, but not the adjacent valley to dump the spoil.

    Am not sure, but I assumed it was a skunk and they were trying to stuff it in his mouth (or at least let it spray inside his mouth)...

    Just googled it and it supposedly hurts besides stinking a lot...

    Someone over on TWOP posted that it was said in an interview it was a badger. Not sure how that makes sense but okay.
