Will Justified's Raylan Givens Be Torn Between Two Women?

As if Justified's Raylan Givens doesn't have enough to worry about. In addition to trying to defend some pesky on-the-job shootings, he's also up to his knees in trouble with the ladies.

Ex-wife Winona (Natalie Zea) has recruited Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) to look into her new husband's shady business dealings, and he's sure to dig up some old feelings as well as secrets. But what does that mean for his brewing romance with Ava (Joelle Carter)?

"This certainly is not a traditional triangle," Zea tells TVGuide.com. "I think the writers have been really smart about how to handle these particular characters and how they relate to each other. I think to make Winona the jealous ex-wife would be diminishing the depth and the layers that they're giving her. I enjoy the lack of animosity between these two girls."

The ladies, who crossed paths briefly a few episodes back, have another chance meeting in Tuesday's episode (10/9c on FX), which finds Raylan on the hunt for someone he believes is targeting Ava. The women exchange a few words about Raylan's past.

"They both share a past with Raylan, but they're different pasts," Carter says. "Winona probably knows a more grown-up side of Raylan, but she doesn't know his history as a child and what makes him the man that he is. There's a mystery that hasn't been revealed to Winona yet, and I think that's one of the reasons they broke up. I believe Ava has more of a sense of where some of Raylan's demons come from because she grew up in the same area. They share a similar bond."
