As I’m sure all Walton fans would agree with me by saying that this nomination has been a long time coming for Walt, and we’re very happy
it came this year. In addition Walton’s co-star Timothy Olyphant
was also nominated for Outstanding Actor in a Drama
as well as Margo Martindale
for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama

This is the brief description from IMDB for next week’s Season 2 finale of ‘Justified’.
The quest for a missing person forces Raylan to wade into a war that has erupted in Harlan between Boyd and the Bennetts.
Raylan out for blood? Hm, sounds interesting!
lauren198: How about anything related to my favorite show Justified!
We never get tired of talking about how awesome Justified is. It’s so awesome! This week’s episode is no exception. We’ll admit we are suckers for bad boys and Boyd (Walton Goggins) is a bad bad boy. This week Boyd is staking his claim on the seedier aspects of Harlan County and in doing so he’ll be making some dangerous enemies. No doubt Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) will be out for blood when he learns of the latest tragic collateral damage. Oh, we can’t wait!
The ‘Justified’ finale is starting to look pretty good y’all!
You may have realized that we are a little obsessed with this show. OK, a lot obsessed. This week’s episode is so fantastic that you just have to watch for yourself. Seriously, you will not regret it. But if you need a little tease: There’s a good ole fashioned whoop-de-doo, Boyd (Walton Goggins) and Ava (Joelle Carter) dancing, a big death and what is sure to be Margo Martindale’s bone-chilling Emmy nomination clip. We’re going to go out on a limb and suggest that the events of this episode are so important they could launch a thousand bullets and propel us through to another amazing finale
I thought this was worth sharing. 🙂
HONOR ROLL: Walton Goggins is a master of sinister understatement on FX’s Justified as ex-con Boyd Crowder, the last person you’d expect a coal company exec (Hung’s Rebecca Creskoff) to hire as a security consultant. “It sounds an awful lot like you want me to return to my outlaw ways,” he tells her, newly clad in his J.C. Penney suit in the back of her limo. Sounds like he might be right, because she now needs him to deal with fearsome backwoods crime matriarch Mags Bennett. …
In a recent interview with TVLine.com the lovely Joelle Carter who plays Ava Crowder on Justified opened up a little more on how Ava see’s Boyd and more!
TVLINE | What does Ava see in Boyd that she’s giving him the benefit of a doubt and now is letting him stay with her?
I think she knows that Boyd had a good heart, and she’s been involved with his family, the Crowders, for so long, that it’s familiar for her. It’s kind of like, “The grass is always greener, but once you get there sometimes it’s dead.” When she left Harlan to go to Lexington, the big town wasn’t really for her. She got a little lost, and the idea that maybe Raylan would show her the way got blown up, so… she’s gone back to what’s familiar, and Boyd is the only kin she really has around. They’ve always cared about each other to an extent. Like she said in the first season, people can change. I think she truly believes that.
TVLINE | Ava tells Boyd she will have a “zero tolerance” policy when it comes to his shady dealings. As they grow closer, do you think she might “waver” on that point?
Ava is an “act on the seat of her pants” kind of gal, and she wears her heart on her sleeve, so she tends to get in trouble. So she might open up to a few “exceptions.” But she will try hard to keep him to his word!
TVLINE | Will we see her away from her front porch, dragging on cigarettes, anytime soon?
The best thing about Ava this season is it’s a slow burn, and it’s leading up to something pretty spectacular that I think the fans are really going to like. They’re going to like Ava’s journey “home,” in a sense of her finding herself and what she’s capable of. She goes back to her true character and embraces it. And I think that I can say that, yes, Ava finds true love.
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!)?
Tiffany Wendeln Connors of The New York Post had this to say about ‘Justified’ and it’s newest episode which airs this Wednesday at 10pm on FX.
“Justified” (Wednesday, 10 p.m., FX) In the first two episodes of the season, we didn’t get to see much of TV’s most interesting villain, Walton Goggins’ Boyd Crowder. But this week, he makes his triumphant return when our hero Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) pursues Boyd as the likely culprit in a drug-related murder investigation. The carefully crafted story is funny, dark and sharp, demonstrating why this is the best police drama on the air.

4. Two more words: Boyd Crowder. Although this is Raylan’s story, it’s harder than ever to take your eyes of Walton Goggins’ electrifying performance as Boyd Crowder, a former hellraiser trying to stick to the straight and narrow. There’s just one problem: No matter how hard he tries, nobody’s buying it, least of all Raylan. “Boyd is on this journey of self-discovery and he’s looking for one thing: to be absolutely numb,” Goggins says. “But people won’t leave him alone.” He will find one friendly soul, however, and it could grow into an unexpected romance. “What Boyd may very well wind up believing in is love,” Goggins says.
