Well, I know what you ladies will be looking forward to now. 😉
RaylanFan: Quarles might be Justified’s creepiest big bad yet so I hope he doesn’t get killed off soon. Do you have any intel?
Cunning Quarles (Neal McDonough) is staying above ground at least through episode 10, star Timothy Olyphant confirmed, adding, “He becomes a much more interesting, more sick and twisted character.” Eek! Could Boyd (Walton Goggins) and Raylan (Olyphant) team up again to kick this carpetbagger out of Harlan County?
BaileyFink: Have you heard any new Justified scoop?
Walton Goggins sure knows how to make a reporter blush. He told us about an upcoming intimate scene for Harlan’s resident Bonnie and Clyde couple, Boyd and Ava. Goggins dishes: “We [have] this scene, it’s as beautiful and as weird a love scene as I have ever seen on television. And I’m so excited because it’s with Joelle Carter. She’s fabulous.” Awww, true love can be found with your dead husband’s brother.
Oh now this just sounds way too interesting. I cannot wait!
Question: Just about a month until Justified is back… and I can hardly wait! Any scoop? Please? I have cookies. —Michele
Ausiello: File this under “W” for “WTF?!?!?!” Early into Season 3, Boyd is desperately trying to stay in prison and Raylan is desperately trying to get him out! Now gimme my cookie!
Check out BuddyTV’s ‘Justified’ spoilers for the upcoming 3rd season! Don’t forget to check out the source for the full article and all of the spoilers.
If there’s one thing Justified excels at, it’s presenting three-dimensional, relatable criminals. It will be exciting to see what mischief the newbies get up to. And of course, there’s always Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) waiting in the wings when things get too settled.
Speaking of Boyd, last we left our favorite wild-haired criminal he was furious at everyone for allowing Ava (Joelle Carter) to get shot. Did Ava make it? Are she and Boyd still going strong? Seems the answer is yes on both counts! Ava actress Joelle Carter doled out some fun tidbits about Ava’s gun-slinging future and the upcoming season. “I get to join Boyd in his shenanigans. And I think we get a little Bonnie and Clyde action. The fans seem to really like Ava with a shotgun,” Carter said.
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!
If you haven’t seen last night’s episode, I would advise you not to continue reading.
Moving onto Raylan’s bad father, Arlo and Helen really did sign their land over to Boyd?
We had a scene where Boyd went to Arlo’s, and the script was just too long, so we said, “We’ll just have Boyd say it.” We get a little bit more of it later on, but basically, Boyd figured out the deal was about the road and that Arlo’s property was key. He said to Arlo, “If you give me control of this property, I’ll get you a lot of money,” and Arlo said, “Okay.” But there’s also a sort of tacit agreement about where they were gonna go from there.
What’s next for Boyd?
Last season, I said, “I want to see Raylan and Boyd on the same side of a gunfight.” We felt that one of the themes of this season would be second chances. Raylan gets a second chance at Winona, Boyd gets a second chance at living a non-criminal life. But one of the big theme’s in Elmore’s work is the character’s destiny. People may want to change, but it’s very hard for them to change. And our feeling is Raylan, as our hero, can change incrementally, but Boyd, try as he might…. It’s a bit of a spoiler alert, but our goal from the beginning of the season was Boyd becomes an outlaw again. You can see us build to that. He drags the guy in episode 3, he gets the offer of the mine job in episode 4, episode 5 is the mine job. Now he’s revealed that he’s played the mine lady. Then we’ll see where he’s headed. (For more on Boyd and Ava, head to the Spoiler Room.)
I really can’t wait to see how this all unfolds.
Can you tell me when we get to see more Boyd and Ava? They are my new favorite relationship on Justified. — Ellyn
As they should be! Boyd Crowder — suddenly a gentleman? What’s not to love about that. Unfortunately, the last few episodes hold tough times for this totally captivating odd couple, says exec producer Graham Yost. “Raylan finds it very difficult to change, [but] Boyd has found it impossible. I think Ava is right there as well. Our feeling was that she didn’t marry Bowman because he was a football star. We think she didn’t mind being in the criminal life,” he says. “That was one of our goals of season 2 — to play this flirting, coming together, coming apart between them two. That will have repercussions — and they wont all be good.”
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’ve heard similar praises of the April 6 episode and I find it’s only making me even more anxious to see it. I don’t know about you but I can’t wait!
Question: No, Justified scoop at all? C’mon give Justified fans a little love! —Tiffany-Liana
Ausiello: Raylan loses some of his trademark swagger in the wake of that whole botched money run with his ex, and Boyd’s new lady boss (Hung‘s fantastic Rebecca Creskoff) has a ringside seat to the mini-meltdown. In fact, those two will be forced to spend a lot of time together over the next two episodes when Raylan is assigned to serve as Carol’s personal bodyguard.
Question: Can I have some Justified scoop on Boyd and Ava! —Ash
Ausiello: Next week we bear witness to what I’m fairly certain is the couple’s first truly happy moment together. The setting of this magical sequence? The last place you’d ever expect. The action-packed April 6 episode — easily one of the show’s best ever — is also noteworthy in that it features a si********t ****h. BTW, can we get a round of applause for Margo Martindale? In a perfect world, her balls-to-the-wall performance as Bennett matriarch Mags would make her the frontrunner for the 2011 guest actress in a drama Emmy.
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.”
