This is the second time I’ve heard about Boyd having to wear a suit, but my first hearing of a new job. Hm, this season is just getting more and more interesting by the day.
Jessica: Justified scoop please!
Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) has a brand-new job and a brand-new suit. So what kind of job can a former white supremacist leader and felon get in this tough economy? A hired gun for a mining company of course! Luckily this new career path puts Boyd right back where he belongs, bantering with Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant). Yay for our favorite bromance!
I can’t wait to see these upcoming episodes!
Hi, I love your column and am thrilled that it’s now twice weekly. Some spoiler scoopage on Justified, please! — Susola
I hope some Boyd news will do the trick. In a chat with reporters this week, Walton Goggins hinted to a big moment of realization coming up for the ever-evolving character that — if you’ve been as awed as I have by this character this season — sounds completely fantastic. “Coming up in three or four episodes, you’re basically going to see what Boyd has taken away from this introspective, this journey within. He’s going to be able to articulate this in a way that Boyd would articulate this, in a poetic way. He’s going to just lay it all out there. Like having taken the time and looked at life from all these different angles, this is what I walk away with,” he says. “It’s beautiful, and in some ways, I think for the audience, hopefully you’ll really understand this guy and not just feel sympathy for him, but you’ll kind of understand it from a birds-eye point of view and you’ll see kind of his worldview laid out in a way that makes sense.”
Yes, yes we definitely do love us some Boyd Crowder y’all! 😉
Jessica: I love Justified. Boyd scoop please!
It’s no secret that we love us some Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins), even when he’s straddling the line of bad, he’s oh so good. In an upcoming episode Boyd’s going to be taking a big step over that good-bad line and we are dying to know how it’s going to affect Ava’s (Joelle Carter) one rule for living in her house: no criminal activity.
I can’t wait to see how their story develops.
Question: Any scoop on Justified? —Brandon
Ausiello: Now that they’re living under the same roof together, Boyd and Ava will begin to grow closer. “I think that they end up really getting to know who each other is,” says Ava’s portrayer, Joelle Carter, “and respecting that, and being there for each other.” Annnnd…? “Annnnd…. I’m not sure what happens after that!” she hedges. (No worries. Walton Goggins recently painted a pretty graphic picture for us!)?
You can read the entire article at E!Online. I highly recommend it but, bear in mind it is quite spoilery.
What does Ava’s relationship with Boyd look like this season?
I think that her relationship with Boyd is very conflicted. We’re going to be sensing stuff about her, which is, in going a little deeper, about who she is and the life she’s led. It’s not all just the surface story of this girl. There’s something else going on in there and that is something that will affect her relationship with Boyd. Coupled with the fact that Boyd is, with her, incredibly gentlemanly and caring and protective.
Is Boyd tempted to go back to life of crime?
What do you think? Yeah. It’s “tempted,” and it’s also, again, that sense of character is destiny. I think that Boyd will have a realization that his struggle to not be that guy that he was, was maybe the wrong struggle. You’ll see it in our fifth episode—it’s very Boyd-heavy, and we finally get to see him in a different light. When he got religion and went off on that path, it led to death and destruction. His conclusion could be that that’s just not the right path for Boyd Crowder.
I for one am very excited, as at the end of last season I suddenly wanted them together. And as Walton said, Boyd is very complex so seeing how he handles a relationship will be very interesting!
Question: Do you have any scoop on Justified? —Veronica
Ausiello: What if I told you that Boyd (Walton Goggins) was going to get romantically involved with his onetime sister-in-law Ava this season? Better yet, what if Goggins told you himself?! “It’s going to be an interesting relationship,” he says. “I talked [to the producers] about how Boyd would approach love, and how different that would be than Raylan. Boyd’s a really deep guy. He’s probably someone who would create a flower out of a napkin or just read poetry for hours.”
