Rooster Recap: Justified 5.13 “Restitution”

This week marked the finale of the fifth season of Justified, and things got pretty interesting. As per norm, the finale concluded the main arc of the season, but left just enough loose ends to propel us through another. To remind everyone, next season will be the sixth and last, so hopefully it’ll be topnotch.…

Rooster Recap: Justified 5.11 “The Toll”

This week on Justified, folks be gearin’ up to a big finale. We’ll get Ava out of the way right quick, because nothing much interesting happened to her. Basically, it just looks like she’ll be getting away with her shanking. Good for her. In the much more interesting plot, Art is shot and critically wounded…

Rooster Recap: Justified 5.10 “Weight”

This week’s episode of Justified was pretty good.

The main conflict carries over…

Rooster Recap: Justified 5.9: “Wrong Roads”

This week on Justified… Raylan and Boyd finally had a scene together. Granted, they only exchange one line each, but it’s still nice to see them on camera at the same time. It all begins when Boyd finally makes it back to Kentucky from his two-episode foray down Mexico way. Hallelujah, right? So yes, he…

Rooster Recap: ‘Justified’ 5.7 “Raw Deal”

This week’s Justified was, surprisingly and unfortunately, disappointing. The more I think about it, the more I realize that it was just every small-scale complaint I’ve had about this season so far piled one on top of another to form a single large-scale complaint. Raylan’s plot was pretty inconsequential. In general, I don’t mind filler…

Rooster Recap: Justified 5.6 “Kill the Messenger”

This week’s episode of Justified began on a positive note: with Raylan ruining the best day of Art’s career by revealing his potential involvement in the murder of Nicky Augustine, and Art punching Raylan in the face. Classic. But this show is all about things not going well for people. It’s always been about that.…
