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.

Ask Ausiello: Boyd and Ava will begin to grow closer…

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!)?

Justified Boss Talks Feuds, Romance and New Season Secrets

Justified Boss Talks Feuds, Romance and New Season Secrets

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.

Ask Ausiello: Who is Boyd getting romantic with? Find out!

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.”

Ask Ausiello gives us a scoop on season 2 of Justified

Question: I have not seen anything on season 2 of Justified. Got any scoop on that? —Carolyn
Ausiello: Production resumes in mid-October, and newly minted series regular Walton Goggins tells me “the pendulum will swing in a completely different direction for Boyd, and religion may receive his ire. He may become an agnostic vigilante, [but] I won’t say against who.”

Latest critic reviews of Predators are in!

Here are some of the few reviews rolling in of Predators. Thanks to Manya for the heads up!

The cast in general is surprisingly solid, especially the ineffably cool Alice Braga and a memorable Walton Goggins, who earns most of the films laughs with some off-colour humour.

Walton Goggins was a favorite of mine. He brought the laughs to the film through his deadpan comments and humour. I really enjoyed Stans.

What’s Next for Raylan and Boyd?

What’s Next for Raylan and Boyd?

*Spoilers for those who haven’t seen the finale.
Few were left standing at the end of Justified’s bloody first-season finale, but among the survivors was Walton Goggins’ Boyd Crowder, a character who has escaped death twice this season.

In the finale, Boyd, who was originally intended to die in the pilot, survived a shootout between his friend/nemesis Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) and two Miami drug-cartel assassins. Even though Raylan spent much of the second half of the season trying to put Boyd back in jail after he blew up a meth lab, he still lets Boyd give chase to an assassin instead of bringing him in.

“We hadn’t planned that the arc would be about Raylan and Boyd, but that became apparent when we decided to keep Boyd alive,” creator and executive producer Graham Yost tells TVGuide.com. “We knew the bad relationship would help form the spine of the season. Heading into the finale we knew we wanted to both resolve some things, get some answers, and yet throw open more questions.

“The big question is, ‘What’s going to happen with Boyd, what’s Raylan going to do?'” Yost continues. “He’s implicated in the murder of a confidential informant from the meth lab, but he has been, in his strange Boyd way, fighting a good fight to try to stop his father from bringing evil to Harlan. So what does Raylan do?”

In truth, Raylan could ask himself that question about many of his relationships. Also in the finale, Raylan learned that his ex-wife, Winona (Natalie Zea), had kicked her new husband out of the house, but Raylan still went to great lengths to protect current squeeze Ava (Joelle Carter).

Walton Talks Justified’s Season Finale

Walton Talks Justified’s Season Finale


So, that happened. In other words, MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD if you have yet to watch the first season finale of ‘Justified.’

Seriously, HUMONGOUS SPOILER ALERT!

Still here? Then you already know who bit the dust last night — Boyd Crowder’s (Walton Goggins) wily papa Bo (M.C. Gainey). And you saw how Boyd, the show’s resident scene stealer, reacted to Bo’s brutal murder of Boyd’s religious cohorts, which seemed to prove that Boyd had been sincere about the born-again proclamation he sprung on Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) and the rest of Harlan County’s denizens after his brief incarceration earlier in the season.

Goggins, who, we have to reiterate, so deserves an Emmy nod for his ‘Justified’ role (and will be among the contenders for a nomination in the Guest Actor in a Drama category … he becomes a series regular in season 2), talked to TV Squad before the finale, and shared his thoughts on Bo’s death, Boyd finding — and maybe losing? — his religion and where his recent losses might lead him in season 2.

So, Bo’s dead, and not by Boyd’s hand …
How crazy was that? And after the beating [that Bo ordered Crowder cousin Johnny to administer to Boyd]. Did that make you feel for Boyd?

Oh yeah, definitely. But I felt for Boyd several times throughout the season. The biggest was when he went back to camp and found his men dead, hanging from the trees. His reaction, and that he cut them down and buried each one of them … you could see he was crushed. And it was the first definite bit of evidence as to what his motivations really are. He cared about those men, and didn’t take lightly that they had pledged their loyalty and trust to him.
Exactly! That is exactly it. It’s between that moment, and a question that Boyd asks a few scenes later, when he says to Raylan, ‘Do you believe in God?’ He asks Raylan that question. And I think that’s the first question that Boyd asks over the course of the entire season — ever — maybe ever in his life — where he doesn’t know the answer to it. He genuinely doesn’t know. And so, for me, that was a clear indication of where his heart was along this whole first season.

Now that his father is dead, will it be freeing for Boyd, or will he be in even more turmoil, trying to figure out who he is without this imposing figure there?
I think he has to figure out who he is without his father’s presence there, both physically and metaphysically. Both his fathers, I think, are dead in his eyes … one being his earthly father, and the other being his spiritual father. I don’t know where this guy goes from here.

A person who has a world view like Boyd Crowder’s … I don’t know what they do when their foundation — a person whose foundation is rarely, if ever, rocked — gets rocked. It may change, but he’s able to transfer this weighty foundation … he’s always grounded in some truth or another that he’s able to live out, that gives him a purpose for living. And now, all of that’s been taken away. Everything has been taken away.

I suppose he will continue his journey. I don’t know if he’s going to become a Buddhist or [laughs], you know, if he will go back into a life of crime, or if he will be against all things spiritual. I don’t know if he will give up his faith in spirituality or humanity … I just don’t know what will happen with this guy. That’s what so interesting … all these unanswered questions, and it could go anywhere.

Have you started work at all on season 2?
No, no we haven’t. We’ve had some initial discussions about it, but we’re all just kind of letting [the first season] settle and see how it plays out.

Boyd is a leader, too, so it’s tough to imagine he’ll be kept down, however he decides to proceed next season.
Boyd is a natural-born leader. I think his actions, in many ways, were the same. He was engaging in the same kind of behavior, post-incarceration, but his motivations for doing it were different. And when a man feels righteous, there is no limit to what he is capable of doing. Now, all that’s been taken away from him. So, I guess I would end this interview with a big question mark. [Laughs]
