Bloody fantastic
30 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's an unmistakable sense of finality with the opening of 'Bloody Harlan', primarily with regard to the Bennetts. But not in the way you might expect. Raylan feels an obligation to protect Loretta (who's since run off back to Harlan to avenge her father) especially with the news that he'll soon be a father himself. This, as Winona pleads with him not to return to that war zone. It's what elevates this finale above just your "there will be blood" hook. Loretta's the most heartbreaking character so far, and her life in the balance is more than enough to ratchet the stakes. Honest to god, I can't think of a better way to end the season. Bullets fly and losses are suffered, but the episode's best moments center on a 14 year-old.

This is a "Justified" highlight; brilliant, taut and I'll be damned if I'm not sorry to see Mags go.

Margo Martindale, for the win.
