<i>Justified</i>: The Shot of the Week

I knew I was going to like "Loose Ends" the minute Delroy's coked-up gang of prostitutes leapt out of his van for their heist. What can I say, I actually really enjoyed Sugar & Spice back in the day. What's more, I love Ava, who gets the highly coveted "Shot of the Week" award for shooting woman-slaying Delroy, despite the fact that he paid Boyd to protect him. Didn't he learn that just because he's got muscle behind him, it doesn't give him free reign to be completely void of basic human decency? And that the thing revered most in the universe of Justified is breaking the law when you're ethically doing the right thing? If only anyone on this show could learn these simple lessons -- take Napier, for example. How awesome was it to see Boyd channel Mags Bennett and talk up the little people versus Harlan's corruption? Walton Goggins clearly has his Emmy reel ready to go.

There was only one gun fired in "Watching the Detectives," but the fact that it wins Shot of the Week by default doesn't mean it wasn't awesome. There's nothing I enjoy more than when a show takes an annoying dude from the past who once came close to royally ruining everything and gives him a unceremonious death. (Breaking Bad also provided a shining example of this.) While I obviously don't want Quarles to win in his planted-evidence scheme, watching it all unfold in front of Raylan sure does make for great TV -- even more so when our favorite marshal finally sneaks in the chance to be one tiny step ahead of Quarles. I'm obviously extremely excited about the recent Season 4 renewal, but this, to me, means that by this season's end, we'll see a no-doubt bloody downfall for Quarles with Raylan coming out on top. And maybe the writers will at least throw us a bone and kill Winona.

FLASHBACK: I'm sitting in front of my TV, watching the scene in "The Devil You Know" where Dickie Bennett is a mere few seconds away from getting shot and killed by two armed idiots, and I find myself uncontrollably sobbing. My caretaker approaches me and asks what's wrong and why I'm crying, but all I can muster through my tears is: "I don't know."

While Justified always does an artful job of using of violence for the sake of story and character development, the real treat in last night's episode was not the "Shot of the Week," but rather a far less bloody element.
