Justified, Season Two
After setting such high standards in Season One, I was worried that it had nowhere to go but down. I was wrong. I was so very wrong.
We’ve wasted no time uncovering the new arch-villain of the Season, although it’s not apparent until the last few scenes exactly who that is.
Raylan is still Raylan, although this season he’s in Kentucky by choice. We’re not really sure why he made that choice, but he did refer to it as home. Maybe the late night visit from Winona was a hint as to why he is thinking of Kentucky as home again.
Boyd is still a little ambiguous. We’re not really thinking of him as the bad guy anymore, but he’s no boy scout, despite his penchant for camping. As of the end of Season Two, Episode One, Boyd is MIA, but there are leads. All we know is he’s blowing stuff up, but don’t know why.
The new arch-villain is somehow even creepier than Boyd and his religious zeal. For those of you who haven’t watched this yet, I’ll just say that the pedophile character is creepy, but not as creepy as the villain we get to know in the closing scenes.
At the end of the show I was happy; the show was as good as I’d hoped it would be. Season Two promises to be everything we loved about Season One with maybe a little more. I think we’re going to see more of Raylan’s fellow marshals this season, which just means we get to know a little more about the characters.
Justified airs Wednesday nights on FX.
