Justified - Blind Spot
2 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ava is in a department store, receiving what seems like "veiled" threats by Boyd's brother, Johnny (David Meunier), regarding a pickup of particular goods for "deer hunting" when his relatives get out of prison. Raylen visits Ava while she's cutting away garments from Boyd's pants, the two eventually "bedding down for the night" when a "spotter" (that was what he was supposed to do, but he got the itch to do the killing instead, fumbling the ball badly) attempts to shoot (we are led at first to believe) Ava. It turns out to be a bit different; through jail visits with Boyd, Raylen learns that perhaps he was the one meant for the sawed-off shotgun blast! The "Cartel out of Miami" had sent an actual hit-man to take Raylen out for his actions while stationed in the US Marshals dept in Miami. Art is incensed with Raylen for putting himself in that position (continuing to have sexual relations with Ava), because of the investigation into his actions in Miami; concerned that Raylen will provide further evidence needed for Vasquez to take his badge, Art is furious that one of his marshals would be caught shooting at somebody in the yard of a woman he's having sex (herself once married to a drug "conduit" in Lexington, Harlen, and surrounding areas in Kentucky where the marshals are stationed). County Sheriff Hunter Mosley (Brent Sexton) was responsible for putting Boyd away and is on the trail of the person who tried to kill Ava, but his intentions may not be as they seem.

This episode includes Raylen wanting to waylay Boyd for his sermonizing, Bo (MC Gainey; Boyd's father) coming to his son's rescue in the prison (cons aren't happy with Boyd being a snitch to Raylen, with Bo intervening before his boy took a scalpel to the throat), Ava and Winona having a conversation about Raylen (Winona obviously still has deep feelings for Raylen, while her talk with Ava seems awkward, as it should), and Mosley telling Raylen about one of the Crowders (a supposed bible-selling man of God, considered one of the only good Crowders of the family) he wanted to capture so badly for the rape and suffocation of a little girl. The little girl's death has haunted Mosley, and you can see when he and Raylen make a special trip to see if Johnny (because of his comments in the store "to" Ava; or about her through the exact descriptions of goods needed for the deer hunting trip) has a bullet hole (perhaps as he was hurled out of the window of Ava's bedroom by Raylen and shot once in the shoulder, a mark placing him at the scene could lead to his arrest; however, Raylen never suspects Johnny would pull a stunt like that; Johnny mentions he doesn't want Ava to come to harm, and all that talk was to get her out of town), the sheriff bullies him a bit, with demands that he strip, later socking him in the crotch. I was happy with this episode because it seems like the show was starting to develop an ongoing story arc that builds characters throughout its cast instead of just featuring one-off investigations that start and finish. I think once Boyd is out of jail, and Arlo becomes more involved, the show really takes off, but at this point the show was still not totally devoted fully to its characters, giving them little dialogue scenes before eventually allowing the cast to get all (or most) of the attention.
