This episode is the finale for Season 5 of Justified. That means it’s time to pay the piper, folks, and there’s a lot of people holding overdue bills. Read More New Show Recap: Justified, 5×13, “Restitution”
Convinced that Daryl Crowe is behind the shooting that put Art in the hospital fighting for his life, Raylan is employing the “scorched earth” method of flushing him out. Things start ugly and end uglier.
It’s always an interesting exercise to compare the title of a Justified episode with the action on screen. “Weight” here could apply to anyone and everyone. Actions have consequences and our favorite good guys and bad guys (and women) are feeling the strain.
Every season of Justified has a cycle. It begins with a few episodes where shit happens, which runs until about halfway when there is always one special episode where All The Shit Happens.

It’s gonna get bumpy. Read More New Show Recap: Justified, 5×09, “Wrong Roads”
