TV Recap: 'Justified' Season 4, Episode 2

FX Networks

Everyone's favorite U.S. marshal is back in episode 2, with nothing to show for it but more headaches. Even though Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) seems to be trying to cut as many ties as he can to the past, he just can't get away from it despite his best efforts.

Even though Raylan is a daddy-to-be, he seems quite cozy shacking up with landlady and favorite bartender Lindsey (Jenn Lyon). She may be a reliable shoulder to cry on, but that doesn't mean she's without her own closet skeletons. (Raylan, here's a news flash: she's probably trouble.)

And things at work get just a little bit chancier as Art (Nick Searcy) decides not to go gently into retirement, despite a very attractive bribe in the form of a $200 bottle of bourbon. As they search for clues to the missing figure of Waldo Truth, we love Art's wry bafflement when dealing with Raylan. He is amazed that Raylan is still alive, let alone still employed by as a marshal, and clearly he would do anything to protect him. When it comes to the "father he never had" character, Art couldn't be written better.

Speaking of fathers, even from behind bars dear old pappy Arlan Givens (Raymond J. Barry) caused a passel of trouble by shanking an inmate who starts to sniff around about the mysterious bag that fell from the sky.  As the ripples from that start rolling outward, it sets up a tense meeting between Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) and Wynn Duffy (Jere Burns), who has thankfully decided that his retro-moustache phase is sooo over.

But of course the big lesson learned in this episode: Perverts should never mess with a family's draw check.
