Justified Season 5 Review “Over the Mountain”

Justified is causing me angst. I went from being really excited about the new season to borderline disappointed. Last season, Boyd and Raylan were ships passing in the night. That worked because the previous seasons had involved tense conflict between the two. It was good to have a break. But, this season I was looking forward to having the two reunite as nemeses. That hasn’t really happened. Instead, we have a bunch of side stories swirling around and no clear direction.

I’ve decided to give up on the idea of an overarching story. I’m going to just roll with the mini conflicts that currently dominate the narrative. This week, Dewey settled the score with Messer, Boyd confronted Cousin Johnny, and Raylan had a showdown with the Florida Crowes.
