Justified Cuts to Black

The surprising and delightful finale of Justified.

  • S.06
  • Ep.11
  • 'Fugitive Number One'

A wrenching hour that killed off major characters and set the remaining major players on rails leading to some horrendous final showdown. 

  • S.06
  • Ep.10
  • 'Trust'

Justified is damn close to having a perfect track record during this final stretch. 

  • S.06
  • Ep.05
  • 'Sounding'

Ava's brief escape would have felt like the writers were spinning their wheels if it weren't for how much great plot fodder actually results from it. 

  • S.06
  • Ep.03
  • 'Noblesse Oblige'

Is Ava sleeping with Boyd again to throw him off her CI trail, or is it because she's still in love with him? With Justified, it always seems like it's a little bit of both. 

  • S.05
  • Ep.11
  • 'The Toll'

Consider “The Toll,” one of the season’s stronger episodes but still not anywhere near cracking the Justified best-of pantheon. 

  • S.05
  • Ep.06
  • 'Kill the Messenger'

Is there a contest in the Justified writers' room to see who can pack the most plot into an episode? 

  • S.05
  • Ep.02
  • 'The Kids Aren't All Right'

There's less laid-back, Elmore Leonard–ian talking and scheming in Justified's first two episodes than we're used to. 

  • S.04
  • Ep.09
  • 'The Hatchet Tour'

Apparently all you readers figured out who Drew Thompson was long before we did.
