Did You Know?


Towards the end, after the death of Tanner Dodd, his mother turns on her new TV. A brief scene from the 1957 version of the film 3:10 to Yuma (1957) is showing. "3:10 to Yuma" is based on a story by Elmore Leonard, who also wrote the story "Fire in the Hole", the basis of the pilot. See more »


When Quarles shot Gary, he used a suppressor that he then unscrewed from the end of the barrel. When Raylan pulls the "same" gun out of the paper bag, you can see the barrel is not threaded for a suppressor. While barrels can be internally threaded for a suppressor, it is rare and not usually done for this type of pistol's barrel. See more »

Ava goes all-in
14 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Loose Ends' is the epitome for this season's complicated (yet undeniably absorbing_ potting; this thing's just packed with development. Not the least of which is Boyd's hijacking of a town hall between Sheriff Napier and Shelby; recalling a similar scene last season with Mags Bennett in such a role. Most of this episode (like the last several) is the various Harlan criminal players maneuvering for position, adding density to the storyline.

But things become really serious when Ava proves her mettle and puts Delroy to the ground with a shotgun blast - thus ending his sorry career as a scumbag pimp-turned-failed bankrobber. And Raylan's heart-to-heart with Ava warning against following in Boyd's footsteps suddenly adopts a certain relevance.

The writing is just firing on all cylinders.
