Here’s my review of the season finale of Justified
Pretty much! I am a huge fan of Alan Sepinwall’s reviews and I couldn’t say it better than he already has. So here are some reasons why Justified should get ALL THE EMMY’S!
Oh and since Brynn has obviously already watched it, I am ready to talk spoilers. So be warned, spoilers ahead!
We went into this finale expecting some kind of epic, probably very bloody showdown between Raylan and Mags, but while both of them bleed, and Mags dies, the season’s big climax is the two old enemies working together in service of someone they care about more than their ancient family feud. And that was as unexpected as it was beautiful to watch, just a trio of great performances from Olyphant, Margo Martindale and Kaitlyn Dever.
And then, and then… holy hell, that final scene between Raylan and Mags.
As I said last week, I have such low expectations of the Emmy voters that I wouldn’t be surprised if neither Olyphant nor Martindale get nominated but… damn. Just listen to the way Martindale says “Doyle” upon getting the news that one of her sons was killed, and the way she packs so much information into that one syllable: how she’d much rather it had been Dickie, how her recent rise to fortune has now cost her two sons, and how damn tired she is of all of this, tired enough to do what she does with the glasses.
