'Justified' 2.09 'Brother's Keeper' Recap and Review

Everyone's getting ready for Mags Bennett's big get-together, including Loretta (the underrated Kaitlyn Dever), who wonders if her absent father's asked about her, and if she can talk to him next time he calls. No, that's not awkward at all. Mags deflects the questions without missing a beat, but the cute-yet-slightly-creepy moment is interrupted by Coover (who else?). He leaves as quickly as he arrived, but not before he overhears Mags telling Loretta that she has "no excuse" for him, and referring to her as "a dream come true." It goes without saying that our resident not-so-smart dude with a tendency toward aggression (remember, he beat up a hungover Raylan last week) doesn't take that well.
