Justified Recap: Psychiatric Help, 5 Bullets

8 April 2015 5:50 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It’s fitting that so much of Justified’s second-to-last episode “Collateral” takes place on a desolate, wooded mountain haunted by the ghosts of an old way of life, one that used to be driven by rural traditions and old-fashioned, digger-driven mining. The setting ties in with so much of the talk this season about old ways passing and newer, meaner ways supplanting them. As is so often the case on this series, the mountaintop also showcases Justified’s fondness for the crime film and the Western, genres that often end with violence committed at high altitudes (High Sierra and The Naked Spur came to mind here).It’s in these cold woods that Raylan and Boyd have an aborted showdown as Constable Bob Sweeney lies bleeding nearby from gunshot wounds inflicted by Boyd. Somewhere near this spot, Raylan and then Boyd confront Ava’s uncle Zachariah, who’s covering for his fugitive niece Ava. »

Patton Oswalt on Justified, Veep, and Twitter

7 April 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Patton Oswalt is omnipresent. Or so it seems. The stand-up and actor reprised his fan-favorite role as Constable Bob Sweeney on this week’s penultimate episode of Justified, guest-starred as a Rob Ford–like mayor on Sunday’s Battle Creek, and starts a recurring role as the vice-president’s hands-on chief of staff on Veep on April 12. Plus, he narrates The Goldbergs and frequently can be found on Twitter, most recently causing a firestorm with a 53-tweet rebuttal of the criticism directed at controversial new Daily Show host Trevor Noah. Somehow, Oswalt found a few minutes in his packed schedule to talk about all these things with Vulture. (Warning: This Q&A contains spoilers for the April 7 episode of Justified, “Collateral.”)  Why do you think Constable Bob has become such a beloved character?Bob represents what us mortals would be like in the world of Harlan County, against all these extreme badasses. »

Joelle Carter on Justified’s Final Season, Ava’s Next Move, and That Kiss

17 February 2015 8:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

On tonight’s episode of Justified, Constable Bob Sweeney (Patton Oswalt) says of Ava Crowder (Joelle Carter): "That girl could make a dog break its chain." In the FX drama's current sixth season, she's got two men chasing their proverbial tails: Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins), her ex-fiancé/partner in crime, and Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant), another former flame, who sprang her from jail on the condition that she become his confidential informant to bring down Boyd. "They're not exactly fighting over her," Carter says. "It's more like they're pulling her apart. But a lady does love a little attention one way or another." The Georgia-born actress has been drawing praise for her powerful performance, not to mention her character's passionate kiss with Raylan in the latest episode. She spoke with Vulture about Ava’s next move and what lies ahead in the final season.When »
