Last night’s episode of Justified once again shone the light on the awesome pairing of Raylan Givens and Boyd Crowder.
After marshal Raylan has thrown Boyd in jail for attacking him, he figures out that Boyd wanted to get thrown in jail—and comes to visit Boyd to tip him off that Raylan is wise to him. But before that, Raylan has to explain why it took him so long to figure it out:
Raylan: What do you make of a man who divorces a woman then gets her pregnant then wonders if maybe they should move in together?
Boyd: Well now, Raylan, you’re talking to a man who’s sleeping with his dead brother’s widow and murderess. So if you’re looking for someone to cast stones at you on this matter, I think you’ve picked the wrong sinner.
Swoon! That kind of banter elevates the show from being more than just a place for Timothy Olyphant to look all foxy in white tank undershirts (and that is plenty foxy!)
