In ‘Outlaw,’ we really see the stakes that can be raised in this seemingly fruitless hunt for Drew Thompson. In a way, it’s like watching the chess pieces move around and around, although it isn’t as boring as you would think it to be. In fact, it’s all about the vicious cunning that all criminals and lawman possess in Harlan County. It made for a damn tense episode and a great mark for how this season’s being handled, while keeping the personal slant that this season has been inundating on the viewer.
Anything involving Boyd Crowder this week was expertly done. Again, it’s that motif of showing just how smart the criminals can be despite the aura of low-rent conniver they can give off.
