Justified Advance Review: 2×05 ‘Cottonmouth’

Justified Advance Review: 2×05 ‘Cottonmouth’

All I can say is after reading this little tidbit, I am aching for tonight’s newest ‘Justified’ episode!

For those who want to read the article but are concerned about spoilers, there is no need to worry about this review since it doesn’t feature actual “spoilers” rather than a outline of what will happen without filling in the blanks. You can read the entire Advance review at the source, linked below.

In other happenings, Boyd Crowder is apparently back to his old ways, mired in a new business proposition with his “friends” from the mine. To say any more than that one sentence would be egregiously spoiling, but needless to say it is not at all what you think it’s going to be – and it all makes perfect sense by the time it plays out. The storyline also leads to a heartbreaking scene between Boyd and Ava that’s so good, it once again makes me incensed that he hasn’t yet won a major award for this series yet. Joelle Carter is herself just as impressive, and the two of them together has been the most pleasant surprise to come out of the second season for me.

Walton’s ‘Justified’ interview with Chud.com

Walton’s ‘Justified’ interview with Chud.com

Note: If you notice, this entire interview took place in the video posted previously from YourEntertainmentCorner.com – But regardless, it is a great interview!

Justified is one of the best shows on television these days, and that is in no small part to the work of Walton Goggins. Goggins was in the pilot, and there was talk that his character – Boyd Crowder – would be killed off, a “one and done.” But in crafting the pilot, they realized they could have some fun with him, and though Goggins was also shooting Predators, they managed to work him in to the first season, with his journey taking over the last couple episodes.

Goggins was wary of returning to television –as he says below – because of the seven years he put in on The Shield. His Shane Vendrell was revealed to be the heart and the central tragedy of the show. His work on The Shield is such that it’s fair to say he created one of television’s most indelible characters. And now with Justified he’s on his way to having two of the best characters put to screen. If this interview is fawning, it’s only because everyone in our group that talked to Goggins was a huge fan, and it was funny to see the women with us melting around him. Timothy Olyphant plays his role like walking sex, but Goggins definitely has his fanbase. Goggins proved to be a great interview, and at the end told us that we asked better questions than the New York Times. I’ll take it.

Your character is what absolutely sold me on this show. He’s one of the most fascinating characters on television right now. Does he know what he’s doing? Does he know if he’s on the path to redemption or not?

WALTON GOGGINS: No pressure on that answer. You know what I think that he…I don’t think that he’s ever taken the time to be introspective, to self-reflect. Last season was evidence of that. I think he started off in the pilot being one guy, and with that near death experience he went running in the opposite direction. Doing the same thing but finding God as a motivation for kind of repeating the same actions. And I think it’s only in the second season that Boyd – for the first time in his life – has looked at himself. Looked at what fuels him as a human being, and looked at his faults as a person, and in some ways has spent forty days in the desert. I think that he will emerge from this fully aware of who he is as a person – and be okay with it. It’s at the end of episode three with the throwing of that guy out of the car – it was very cathartic for him. He needed to grieve in that way, and it kind of manifested through this physical action of hurting another person, unfortunately. Because I think he was so hurt. Continue Reading →

Justified Review: 2×04 ‘For Blood or Money’ #3

You can read the full review for ‘For Blood or Money’ over at TV Buzz.

Meanwhile, in the delightfully bucolic hamlet of Harlan, Boyd is (perhaps) contemplating a return to bank robbery. Walton Goggins keeps bringing layers to his performance that can seem sinister or sincere, sometimes in the same sentence. Although his relationship with Ava has turned out to be purely platonic, a tentative connection seems to be growing. Their easygoing conversation on the porch about wig styling and rock stars was truly charming. Of course, she did shoot his brother dead, so there’s that obstacle to romance.

Joelle Carter opens up to TVLine about Ava and Boyd

Joelle Carter opens up to TVLine about Ava and Boyd

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.

Justified Review: 2×04 ‘For Blood or Money’ #2

Be sure to check out Brittany’s full recap & review of ‘For Blood or Money’ over at StarPulse.com

This is not to overlook the continually great work of Walton Goggins and Joelle Carter, who are slowly but steadily forming a very interesting relationship between their characters. Goggins is always good no matter what’s thrown at him, and the Ava Crowder character has grown on me in season two, principally because Carter has seized on the opportunity to make Ava more than a stubborn damsel in distress. She’s not constantly in trouble this season, and she’s exerting some serious authority this season; the two of them together are intriguing to watch, holding their own even as their characters are not directly involved in the major plotlines. While I can guess at what Boyd will do, it’s a testament to Walton Goggins that I know what I want him to do, and I honestly am torn about it.

It’s a testament to the quality of Justified. Even the characters not at center stage are still compelling, even if they’re only with us for a few minutes. Episodes that might be plot-advancing filler on any other show are so much more here. I never feel like I haven’t gotten something out of my forty-odd minutes. And that’s the kind of show that keeps me coming back, because I know that I’m always going to get something back in return.

Justified Review: 2×04 ‘For Blood or Money’

Outside the main plot, the most interesting scenes involved, not surprisingly, Boyd. He remains a wildcard – it’s hard to say whether he’s actually considering the robbery scheme, or if he’s just trying to keep things calm for now – and Walton Goggins is such a compelling presence that I would just as happily watch an episode that was largely composed of Boyd and Ava chatting on the porch about hairdressing and “Of Human Bondage.” (An episode featuring just that and the drunken office scene would be a pretty huge stylistic departure, I know.) Goggins works as well with Joelle Carter as he does everybody else he’s paired with, and I’m wondering where to set the over-under on the episode in which he tries to make them be something more than just roommates.

E!Online: Will Boyd cross the line of good and bad?

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.
