The crime-of-the-week formula is put on the back burner for the first real character episode in the show's run. It's here that we finally meet Arlo Givens, who, despite his outward appearances of being an old codger, is just a conniving thug; and the root case of Raylsn's disdain for his upbringing. Olyphant does a tremendous job with this, a seething barely masked by his usual charm. With just a few dialogue passages, we know why he was so quick to split town as a boy, and why he still wants to now.

One line that perfectly encapsulates the father-son relationship:

"I got you out of jail. At the *very* least, I'll get you back in."

Olyphant delivers it perfectly.

This is a great episode because it really puts the Marshal under the microscope and starts to really develop the characters in Harlan. It's just fascinating to watch.

8/10
