My thoughts during the scene warning the meth lab guys was that Boyd probably sees himself as an avenging angel. I'm tempted to think that he means what he says to some extent, but is taking the Lord's judgement into his own hands.

After the end of this week's episode, I think you are right. Trying to accomplish it without bloodshed, thought, might be a greater issue now.

Lively service for a UMC church.

I didn't see a church name. However, we went to Twin City Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, NC when I was young. After our pastor left, we had some awful strange candidates preach of a Sunday morning. Dad being out of town, the guy picking us up for church one day predicted "some real preaching today!". To my 10 year old eyes and ears, the guy shouted at us for 40 minutes. That's all, just shouting everything he said. There were others that seemed to have odd or eccentric homiletical styles. Ole' Boyd appears to have watched some TBN while in prison.

:shock:

"Bulletville"! I can't think of a more aptly titled episode. I am almost sorry that this got picked up for another season... almost. Last nights season finale could have gone down as one of the greatest series finales of all time. Boyd's final line to Raylan, and Raylan's little pantomime were brilliant. Once this episode really got going - around the time Bo and his men enter Boyd's camp - it never lets up, and doesn't fail to continually surprise. I hope this series is on DVD by September, 'cause it would be my number one birthday request.

But it doesn't have to end. Miami will only want him more. As to Boyd, I've been conflicted about him all season. Now I think he's one of the most complex characters I've encountered on TV. The season is nicely bracketted by the ties Raylan and Boyd have with each other.

Brilliant. Having completed an enormous character arc with Boyd, the writers' challenge for next season will be to come up with another one that's just as compelling. Raylan has plenty of unfinished business to occupy next season; Boyd, on the other hand, is on the brink of a whole new chapter in his life.

Does your signal offer On Demand for FX? We just had it miraculously added towards the end of this season. I'm not completely sure, but I believe that FX will repeat late Thursday night.

Thinking about it more today, what I really liked best about the season finale is that it kept true to the spirit of a lot of Elmore Leonard's novels. So many of them end on a note that there is more story that is going to occur after the last page, but the necessary parts of the current story are concluded, and you don't feel gypped. That's a difficult trick to pull off, but Leonard makes it seem effortless. The end of Out of Sight comes to mind, when Jack Foley ends up seated next to Hejira Henry, who just happens to be an expert at escaping custody - the main story for Out of Sight is satisfactorily concluded, but the reader is left with the feeling that the continuing story of Jack Foley is just beginning.

Same could be said of Justified. Last nights episode completed a terrific story, while leaving room for more to be told. It was refreshing that it didn't conclude on a cliffhanger note. But, had last nights episode been the final episode, the series would have felt complete, IMHO.

Damn... meant to bump this earlier to remind folks of tonight's 2nd season premiere.

TONIGHT ON FX. 10PM! (which means I failed to alert East coast viewers)

Thanks for bumping this. If you hadn't, I would have missed Jeremy Davies total creepiness.

And it appears that this Season 2 opener was co-written by Elmore Leonard. None of the Season 1 episodes were written by him. The bear trap scene and the little surprise about the identity of the local sheriff struck me as pure Leonard.

I enjoyed this. Tied up some though not all loose ends from last season in a pretty satisfying way, and was a good introduction to what's coming up. The dinner table scene with Margo Martindale, Chris Mulkey (totally unrecognizable), and Davies was terrific. So, did mom use the bear trap on Davies sometime in the past?

Well last night we caught a good whiff of this season's story arc, and it can be summed up in two words: Winter's Bone

Yes, the feisty daughter character did remind me of Ree. We'll see.

Good episode. I don't know why it caught me off guard, but Eva's appearance did just that. Could be an interesting development.
