Justified Season 2 comes its explosive conclusion tomorrow with the episode ‘Bloody Harlan.’Picking up on the wake of Mags Bennet’s decision to remain in Harlan and secure her criminal empire, ‘Bloody Harlan’promises to fulfill on the gruesome promise of its title this could easily be the bloodiest Justifed season finale yet.
Fans who were in doubt about whether Justified could keep pace with its fantastic first season are unanimous about one thing: Justified not only kept pace, it has raised the bar yet again. This season of Justified has been grittier, darker, and far more focused than the first, thanks largely to the brilliant character work of guest stars like Margo Martindale (Mags Bennet), who is getting early and enthusiastic Emmy buzz, and LOST veteran Jeremy Davies, whose portrayal of Dickie Bennett, a hillbilly pot farmer and black sheep of the Bennet criminal empire, is far removed from physicist Daniel Faraday.
Sadly, with the current circumstances, it doesn’t look like many of these guest stars will make it into Justified season 3 alive. With Mags welching on her deal with Boyd Crowder to relinquish Harlan’s criminal syndicate to his newly formed crew, and the death of Raylan’s (Timothy Olyphant) step mother in the crossfire of a dispute between Crowder and Dickie, it would appear that all-out war is inevitable. Justifed ‘Bloody Harlan’airs May 4th, at 9PM EST on FX.
