From creator Graham Yost, each episode of the edge-of-your seat final season propels U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) and criminal mastermind Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) ever closer to their ultimate confrontation. While Raylan is torn by just how far he will go to bring Boyd down – including using Boyd’s fiancée Ava (Joelle Carter) as his secret informant – both Raylan and Boyd must now contend with the new incendiary force in town (Sam Elliott), a drug lord intent on building his own pot empire in Harlan. Based on the short story “Fire in the Hole” by Elmore Leonard, the Peabody Award-winning drama now takes its place in the pantheon of acclaimed drama series.

In season 6, Raylan continues his arc from being a brash, shoot-happy cowboy who can't and doesn't want to leave his past behind, to a more seasoned, careful, self-controlled lawman. He never stops being tough, whip-smart, and driven by his emotions. But he has to find a better way to use the fire in his gut to bring order to chaos. If you're looking for Raylan to start blowing people away left and right, this season might be a disappointment. But if you're looking for Raylan to continue doing his best to do what's right in his book, and become a better lawman, this is the season for you.
Boyd also continues his arc. He's always been a sympathetic villain, but we get to see more of who he is fundamentally, with one of the very last scenes in the last episode sealing that deal: Boyd might be the one who can't/refuses to escape his past.
With Ava acting as a CI for Raylan and the law, she's pulled to the point of breaking. She loves Boyd. Or does she? She might love Raylan. Or does she? She's written so well that sometimes we think Ava is running the show. And Wynn Duffy- how is this guy still alive? He's like a roach or something- but we get to know him better too- because Art starts really digging into this enigmatic guy.
Then you have various seasonal additions: Avery Markham and his not-really goons, and many others.
Season 6 of Justified is a clinic on great storytelling, character development, mood, and acting. What a fantastic show. The dialogue alone makes it worth watching.
Timothy Olyphant is excellent and all the supporting cast are very good. I would like to know who Walton Goggins' dentist is. He is one slick character. Of course, a number of families were killed off through the other seasons (I think one was somewhat based on a woman named Mag Bailey that was a bootlegger in Harlan decades ago. Nice lady.) and all these episodes had their merit, but since this is primarily a review of the sixth and final season, I liked it. I will not spoil it for you, but the last episode was not all that spectacular for me.
Sam Elliott was in the final season as the bad guy. The last time I saw Sam was with Mel Gibson killing NVA in the I Trang Valley. Sam has all his hair, but looks like a dried up prune.
At the end, they acknowledged thanks to Harlan Kentucky, because much of the series was set there. Well, I lived there long ago during junior high school years and it was disappointing because you seldom saw anything of Harlan. Most of it was shot in Pennsylvania, and I was hoping to see something I recalled in my youth. I can assure you, I will not go back. I did get out of Harlan alive
I'll say it again: wow.
Look...if your as much as a fan of Justified as I am, you too, are caught right up on the latest episode. And it has been one of the best series I've ever watched. It's almost over. There are only, what, five or six episodes left at the most!?!? I don't know about you but I am both biting nails, chomping at the bits, CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT EPISODE, but I have a feeling that the only person that will be walking out of the culmination of this awesome series will be wearing a hat...and a very sad expression on his weathered face.
UPDATE*** Well...I don't hardly know what to say. It has been one of the best rides of my life, riding along with Raylen. I was wrong, Raylen wasn't the only one standing at the end. All the core characters survived. All the really bad guys got what was coming to them. The show down at the end with Boone was soooo cool, he (Boone) was a rabid dog and needed to be put down. I am truly sad that this series has run it's course, and the writers managed to end this phenomenal series with an ending that was sad, but in a good way. The pure of heart got away. The bandit got nabbed, but seems to have found some peace. The last moments of the last show was (I can't believe I'm going to say this) touching, beautiful. And friends that were on opposite sides of fate found that after all that they've been through, after all the animosity and anger...they "still dug coal together"....absolutely the most satisfying ending to something so chaotic, was perfect. I will miss Harlen County.
Oliphant did a superb job as Marshal, agonizing over tough calls and responding to the spirit of the law. His relationship with Boyd was full of the tension of extremes. I would not wish Confidential Informant status on anyone, Ava was magnificent as the sexual siren tempting men to hate or love her. Her agony was palpable... betrayal every step of the way made her life hell. She deserves an Emmy for her role.
I highly recommend this series, Hope others find their way to watching it, Cultural differences, morality, poverty, crisis of conscience, love, hate, survival. There were plenty of themes for people who enjoy deep thoughts as well as settings that were a visual feast.
I am pleased with Prime for sponsoring this series, The cast and crew did a fine job - Thank you
