The third season of Justified premiered last night with a bang! Actually, I believe it was five bangs… but who’s countin’? After a long spell of anticipation, season three’s first episode—“The Gunfighter”—throws us right back into the world of Harlan and, boy, does it feel good to be home.
A lot was left up in the air at the end of season two. Will Winona’s pregnancy bring her and Raylan closer, even when the job keeps pulling them apart? And with Mags Bennett pushing daisies now, will Boyd rise up as Harlan’s undisputed kingpin? Well, if you watched last night’s premiere, you know that every answer raises new questions, and therein lies the season.
Keep comin’ back week after week for more Justified on FX at 10pm, Tuesday nights. And if you are, in fact, keepin’ a body count, I’d recommend a mighty big abacus this season.
In the meantime, check out my latest video. I got the opportunity to sit down with the premiere’s writers, Graham Yost and Fred Golan, to discuss the behind-the-scenes making of season three’s first episode.
