'Justified': Walton Goggins on Ava, Raylan and unraveling the mystery of Boyd Crowder

If you still haven't quite gotten a bead on the character of Boyd Crowder on "Justified," you have some company."It's still a mystery to me who he is. I'm figuring it out every single day," says the man who plays him, Walton Goggins. That's because, he says, Boyd is "continually changing.""From the pilot to episode 2 was a big swing and a completely different direction, and then from Season 1 to Season 2 is an even bigger swing," Goggins says. "If you look at the trajectory of Boyd Crowder, he was this Svengali, this showman in the pilot episode, and then this near-death experience and religious conversion, and the ambiguous nature of that conversion, only to be revealed at the end of Season 1 that he truly did believe -- in some ways that was his answer."So when you come into Season 2 having that foundation rocked to its core, I think what we found...

Justified Spoilers: Who is the "Heart of the Season?"

Justified is off and running on season two. What can fans expect from the remaining 12 episodes? Speaking to TV Guide, executive producer Graham Yost asks viewers not to forget about Loretta, the young girl Raylan rescued on last week's premiere. How come? She's the "heart of the season," Yost teases. Viewers will be seeing a lot more of Loretta, as Mags tried to play adoptive mother to her. "She does have a real soft spot for Loretta because she's the mother of three boys and was the only woman in the household for many years," Yost says. "You'll see the depth of that bond from Mags' point of view and what transpires because of that. There are unforeseen consequences."
