    Boyd's writing this season has been a little iffy. I find it hard to buy that someone that pulled off that epic election heist left a crippled guy alone to guard a squirrely guy afraid for his life and a big dude that was just plotting to put you in prison.

    Everything else was stellar.

    The second dude is either going to stay and help him get the money (by telling him what safety deposit box it's in) or he's not; there's no need to keep him at gunpoint. And Johnny is generally capable of standing (well, sitting) guard.

    What? He already knew at that point he was trying to set him up. The only thing keeping Ellis there was the thought of violence. Neither Dickie nor him have any reason to stay at that point in the story other than fear for their lives.

    I'm wondering if we're going to see Quarles' family in the finale. Earlier on we were getting several references to his wife and son, and I suspected they might eventually get to see what he was really like; I'm kinda still holding out on that happening.

    Finale's been done for over an hour, and on page 3? A travesty!

    It didn't hit the high that the S1 and S2 finishers hit, personally, but it was still fantastic.

    Disarmed. Heh.

    So hopefully Season 4 is Limehouse. This season hasn't been as good as last season (maybe because it was one long thread instead of the stand-alone episodes like first two seasons), but definitely a good season.

    Easily the best season for me, and Quarles was the best villian yet.

    Justified has some of the best villains in general, but he really stood out.

    And not just because of his big stupid baby head.

    [e]This may have something to do with the fact that I watch Burn Notice, a show where Wynn Duffy plays the supreme evil behind all the world's ills, and then I tune in to Justified to see Quarrles making him his bitch.

    I liked season 2 better as a whole, but season 3 was also great.

    On Errol
    Spoiler:

    For most of the season I haven't liked Limehouse all that much. He just seemed like such a pale imitation of Mags, but these last 2 episodes have done wonders in setting Limehouse up as a wonderful villian going forward.

  • BethrynBethryn Registered User regular
    It strikes me that this season has had a lot about family in it.

    Ava, Arlo and Boyd becoming 'family'
    Arlo dealing with the loss of Helen, and possibly regret for how he dealt with Raylan
    Raylan dealing with becoming a father and his relationship with Winona
    The curious relationship of Quarles, Theo and Sammy
    Quarles' relationship with his father, and in turn with his family
    Loretta's new family in a minor way
    The relationship between Limehouse and the Givens family

    Kinda wonder if it was intentional or not.

    I'm looking forward to Season 4 but I can't imagine the writers thinking up an antagonist more compelling than Quarles. Without a doubt one of the best bad guys in TV history. He was a bond villian with a trademark move while at the same time fitting into the gritty world of the show and being real. There was always a sense of mystery about him, even when we found out some tidbits about his past. That's what I really liked. The most important stuff, like the relationship he had with Theo and the reasons for his split personality, are pretty much left up to our imagination.

    I'll be interested to see where they go next season, because
    Spoiler:

    I imagine next season will have a lot of him dealing with those things, looking inward a lot more than he has so far.

    That was good. I was satisfied with the vast majority of the season and of the finale.
    On Errol
    Spoiler:

    Pretty much this. For a TV show conversation, Limehouse not referencing the previous statements from several episodes back made things a little tricky to recall. For a natural back-and-forth between two people who already know all this, it makes sense he wouldn't even have to mention it.

    Yeah, it was probably a bluff, but even if it wasn't "He grabbed for it, we tangled, I fell back a few steps, told him to freeze, but he lunged again so I shot him." or some variation thereof would fly well enough if it came down to it. Well, in TV land, anyway.

    I think the key point is that Duffy's previous contacts with Raylan this season ('next one's comin' faster' / looking completely ready to gunfight Quarles before the bartender pulled the shotgun) put him in a position to fully believe that this guy would do it. If there was any doubt at all, the first pull of the trigger cleared that up.

    Jere Burns did some wonderful stuff this year.

    Man, I loved the way Duffy said that.

    Actually, Duffy was basically perfect in this finale.

    And I don't know why, but I loved this finale better than everybody else seemed to. Like, I think it was easily as good as S1 or S2. I still feel like the show keeps going up.

    Count me in on season 3 being the best season so far. Mags was great in season 2, but the plot was tighter this time around with the 3 way tug o war. It was tense, funny is a dry, dark way that was very satisfying, and it wrapped up beautifully.

    Pretty solid wrap up.
    Spoiler:

    I know it's probably never going to happen and may even be antithetical to how they've built the show so far, but I'd love to see an arc of episodes with Raylan going back to Miami for a bit. This team is doing Leonard just so much justice, I'd love to see some of his other locales and stories.

    I'm kinda okay with Winona being out of the picture for the time being. Makes sense from a logical standpoint, since being around him is no place for a pregnant woman with a career. Plus, they were really having a hard time justifying(!) her role on the show by the end of the season last year. I'm sure we'll get some cameos checking in on her from time to time, but it's probably for the best she's on the back burner.

    That trailer didn't tell us a whole lot about what the next season is going to be about. Tent revivals, maybe?

  • PreacherPreacher Registered User regular
    Hill people, and they are trying to track down a criminal from before who was supposedly dead but is actually alive. So they'll have flash backs to this prior crime, and then back to the present.

    I like the idea of Raylan just finally giving no fucks about anything. He's been a superlative officer and is responsible for the collaring of several major organize crime schemes, as well as basic investigative work on smaller crimes, and has put some bad people behind bars or in the dirt.

    Him having a full-on battle with internal affairs should be awesome.



    Also, bring back Karen Sisco! This should be a buddy-cop show with Raylan and Karen busting up the Dixie Mafia and the Miami Cartel.

    You can't bust up the Dixie Mafia if it means no more Wynn Duffy.
