We’re now under four weeks from the season premiere of Justified, and FX is releasing teaser trailers at a breakneck pace. We already saw two prior to today (one last Friday and one on Monday), and this afternoon the network released another, which HEY! THAT’S THAT BIRD WHO’S BEEN SCREWING AROUND WITH RAYLAN’S HAT. DON’T THINK I DON’T RECOGNIZE YOU, BUDDY. I’M REAL GOOD WITH FACES. ESPECIALLY NO GOOD SCOUNDREL FACES. WHAT KIND OF TROUBLE ARE YOU GETTING YOURSELF INTO NOW? HUH? NOT TALKING? THAT’S WHAT I THOUGHT. NOT SO TOUGH WITHOUT YOUR FRIENDS AROUND, ARE YOU?
OH, I SEE WHAT’S GOING ON HERE. NOW YOU DID IT. NOW YOU DID IT. YOU HAD TO GO AND MESS WITH BOYD, DIDN’T YOU? IT WASN’T ENOUGH TO PICK ON A MAN’S DEFENSELESS HAT, YOU WANTED TO GO OUT A REALLY POKE THE BEAR. AND NOW HE’S QUITE LITERALLY GOT YOU IN HIS SIGHTS. WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT I SAY? I SAY GOOD. MAYBE THIS WILL TEACH YOU A LESSON ABOUT RESPECTING PEOPLE’S PROPERTY. IF IT HAS TO BE TAUGHT BY A HYPER-LITERATE KENTUCKY UNDERWORLD KINGPIN WITH A TOOTHPICK IN HIS MOUTH AND A SHOTGUN IN HIS HANDS, THEN SO BE IT. ACTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES, BIRD. IT’S ABOUT TIME YOU LEARNED THAT.
(Again, the crow in these teasers is probably a reference to this, but it’s way more fun to yell at a bird, so I’m just going to keep doing that.)
