Is it too early to ask for Justified scoop? What can you say about the final season? — Allen
Although the audience knows Ava appears to be working with Raylan to bring down Boyd, how long will it take Boyd to figure it out? Perhaps longer than usual. “Love is a complicated thing and it allows you to see things sometimes that you shouldn’t and not see some things that you should,” Walton Goggins says. However, both Raylan and Ava might want to think twice about crossing Boyd. “He’s like the Bush administration right after 9/11: Either you’re with me or you’re against me,” Goggins says. “This is the heavyweight round, and at the end of it there’s going to be one man standing.”
EW.com — No matter how dark things get on FX’s Sons of Anarchy, just remember that Venus Van Dam is on the way. The transgender escort played by Justified‘s Walton Goggins makes her return in the Sept. 30 episode when SAMCRO, in need of information, pays her a visit. As fans know, the cast lights up any time her name is mentioned, and Goggins feels that each time he steps on set.
“I really do, and it’s weird. Because I personally, Walton Goggins, don’t feel that—I feel it as Venus,” he says. “Venus feels it and recipocates that with her boys—all the guys on the show. She just considers them brothers, like seeing family that she hasn’t seen in a while. They’re so kind and so gentle to Venus. It’s so refreshing. There’s no competition, there’s just enjoyment on all sides.”
Venus, who was introduced in season five and returned in season six, will also appear in the final ride’s 10th episode. As creator Kurt Sutter told EW, “We find out what’s been going down off-screen between Venus and Tig [Kim Coates]. It’ll be our love story for the season.”
From the sound of it, it sounds like many fans will be getting what they want! I can only imagine how this little tidbit below plays out!
Speaking of bonds, look for Tig and Venus (a returning Walton Goggins) to take theirs to the next level. Declares Sutter: “That’s definitely our love story this season.”

PREVIOUSLY ON… | ?Ava was prison-bound for the murder of Delroy, Nicky Augustine’s reign of terror came to an end in a hail of bullets, and Winona’s was still with child.
COMING UP NEXT | Season 5 will introduce us to Dewey Crowe’s extended crime family, and his brood is every bit as dysfunctional and deplorable as the Bennetts of Season 2. But there’s one major difference between the two crazy clans: Whereas Mags’ bloodline “had a history in the region,” Dewey’s Florida-based kin (led by Michael Rapaport’s ruthless Dale) “are an invasive species,” notes exec producer Graham Yost. An unhinged-as-ever Boyd, meanwhile, is doing “everything he can to get Ava out of jail,” a pursuit that “forms the story for the first five episodes” and beyond, notes Yost, who promises that Ava’s struggle behind bars will be less Orange is the New Black and more, well, Justified (translation: expect a healthy dose of jailhouse savagery). And there’s big news for Raylan on the personal front. Not only does he meet a special new lady (an insightful, shrewd social worker played by Amy Smart), but he’s finally a father. Yep, when the new season picks up, Winona will have already given birth to a healthy baby [spoiler]. But don’t expect a reunion between mom and dad to follow, partly because Natalie Zea has other commitments (including Fox’sThe Following) and partly because, as Yost points out, “They know being together is just too hard.”
RETURN DATE | Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 10/9c (FX)
The season premiere of Justified airs on January 7th at 10PM on FX Network!
Episode 5.01 – A Murder of Crowes
In the swamplands of Florida, Raylan tangles with a deadly branch of the Crowe Family Tree, while Boyd goes into the dark heart of the collapsing Detroit Mob. Written by Graham Yost & Fred Golan; directed by Michael Dinner.

What can you tell me about the new season of Justified? — Will
ADAM: Even though Winona has left Raylan behind, he seems to be doing all right for himself. You’ll see a lot more of bartender Lindsey, both behind the bar and between the sheets. But she’s hiding a secret that could rock Raylan’s world. Speaking of secrets, Boyd seems to be even less trusting of his partners than usual this season. That may have something to do with the secret stash of cash he’s keeping from everyone — including Ava!

Question: I heard a rumor we have not seen the last of Walton Goggins’ Venus on Sons of Anarchy. Please tell me the rumor is true. —Greg
Ausiello: Not only are we going to see the gender-bending dynamo again, SOA creator Kurt Sutter reveals, “I’m pitching a Venus spin-off to FX!” All kidding aside (and yes, he was kidding), Sutter hopes to have Venus back — possibly as early as next season. “My hope is to keep some of this Diosa world alive,” he says, “and there’s no reason why we can’t have him back, because it was pretty fantastic.”

Question: Any news at all on Justified? —Jay
Ausiello: The FX western is recruiting a new batch of freaks for Season 4, and they include a rule-bending military police sergeant who shares a past with Boyd, a fugitive family man who teams up with a pair of drug addicts, a local Constable who went to high school with Raylan, and a charismatic young preacher who starts cutting into Boyd’s profits. Bonus Spoiler: The Season 4 premiere is titled “Hole in the Wall.”
I love how this season is shaping up. I can only imagine what the finale will be like this season. Woot!
Question: Any Justified scoop? —Noel
Ausiello: Next week, Raylan and Boyd find themselves framed for two separate murders (well, attempted murder in one instance). Raylan also pays a visit to Quarles’ little torture/sex chamber, where a familiar fella makes him a perverse offer he can (and easily does) refuse.
