'Justified' Recap and Q&A: Strange Bedfellows

While Limehouse was doing his usual “pontificating while preparing pork products” routine last night, he said something that summed up this whole season pretty well: “Money brings together wayward personalities.” In search of some combination of an ill-gotten inheritance and Oxy-related riches, we’ve seen a troubled Detroit mobster, a backwoods criminal mastermind, a slick sociopath, a limping loner with an unexplainable haircut, a terrifying bacon-producing banker, the unpredictable father of a marshal, a battered woman turned pimp, and, now, a displaced orphan all become intertwined in a mangled, devious knot. And between last night’s episode and next week’s finale, it’s up to Raylan to somehow untangle the whole mess. I imagine he’ll just shoot it.

The highlights:

  • NAKED SHOTGUN BONG HOOKER SPEEDWAGON TRAILER PARTIES WITH HOSTAGES (NOTE: This is my favorite bullet point of the whole season.)
  • Boyd “Crazy Eyes” Crowder.
  • Hey, did you know I wrote like 1000 words about Dickie Bennett’s hair last week? Because I did.
  • “You’re the marshal. Isn’t that what you do?” “Yeah, it is. And this is how we do it.”
  • Ava using her feminine wiles at the bank, with all the subtlety “of a marching band.”
  • “I’m sorry, but he escaped from a disease ridden whore factory up in INBRED HOLLER.” “I’m gonna let that one go.”
  • Wynn Duffy on Quarles: “Big stupid baby head.”
  • “Salt … or pepper.” I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that a guy with a giant swastika tattoo would use this imagery, huh?
  • Dickie Bennett, polite kidnapper
  • “You’re just a stupid, craven, hillbilly piece of sh-t.” BAM.
  • Loretta is not a Van Halen fan.

As per usual, GIFs by Chet Manley are on the next page. Also, we’ll be joined by both of our buddies from the show’s writing staff today. VJ Boyd will be dropping by around 12:30, and Jon Worley will be around sometime between 1 and 1:30. Feel free to load up your questions and comments and swing back throughout the day to see what they had to say. I’m equally excited about next week’s finale, and dreading it. Don’t leave me, Raylan and crew! I need you!
