Justified - 5x02 - Postmortem with Graham Yost (Spoilers)

That showdown scene was, to me, quintessential Justified: Calm, cool Raylan casually talking to the bad guys waiting for Hot Rod to arrive. Raylan offering Hot Rod a deal. Hot Rod joking and then threatening Raylan. Raylan explaining why Hot Rod doesn’t want him to pull his weapon and revealing how growing up with Arlo helped make him the gunslinger he is today. Just perfect.

It establishes history, that Hot Rod knew his father, and this is how far Raylan will go to protect this girl.

Will we see Loretta again?

That’s it for her this season, at least that’s the plan. It was simply, okay, what sort of parental relationship does Raylan have in his life? We immediately sparked to Loretta — the two of them together is always so good — and we could make it work with Kaityln’s Last Man Standing schedule.
