What I’m Watching: Justified

Justified: Season 6, Episode 9 “Burned” (B+)

I love the dynamics and interactions of characters on this show. It’s such an integrated community that Avery would hold an event for his candidacy and have such figures as Boyd and Loretta show up to crash to the party. It’s great to see that Loretta is still a formidable personality, speaking up and rallying the people against Avery to stand behind her, and that after being threatened by the latest unsavory element to arrive in Harlan. I remember Jonathan Tucker best from his stint as a candidate in his own right on “Parenthood,” and it’s fun to see him buried under some ridiculous facial hair as Boon, who made quite an impression with his casual conversation about a snake in Loretta’s home. Ava is certainly in a compromised position, in league with Boyd but hopeless to lie to Raylan at the same time. Wynn being turned as an informant is big news, and I love that we got to see him spending time in his tanning bed as he was once again interrupted by an unannounced visitor. Katherine saved the day in the calmest and coolest way when Seabass showed up intent on getting what he felt he deserved from Avery for betraying Tye, and she’s another one whose loyalties are difficult to read. I like seeing Art around again, there to remind Raylan that he can’t always be such a loose cannon. Boyd nearly being killed by Zachariah and having his operation ruined is sure to compel him even more to pull it off, and we have just four more episodes to see how all of this plays out.
