Justified Episode 7: "Blind Spot" Review

Chief Deputy Art Mullen said it best in this episode. "I told you to do one simple thing: refrain from screwing the only witness in your shooting and you can't even do that." Just imagine that statement being yelled with the vociferousness of years of pent-up rage.

I liked this episode. It didn't satiate the main story arcs as well as it tried to and mixed with a muddled ending, it didn't accomplish what it set out to do. But it had some great moments and some very good acting that made it above average.

Mullen (Nick Searcy) has shown remarkable patience for Raylan throughout the series so far and in "Blind Spot" it was like Raylan lanced a boil. Their scene in the middle of the episode was great from start to finish; well-written and well-executed. Searcy has done a great job of playing the passive aggressive boss who wants his employee to get in line. Raylan's done everything wrong since and still breaks rules-and, if you're like me, you're beginning to wonder if Raylan's doing it intentionally to get out of Kentucky. When Raylan shoots a man for breaking in to Ava's home and trying to kill her (or him) in her bedroom, Raylan receives the yelling-at of a lifetime. Very well done.
