justified loose ends 'Justified' preview: Harlan County elections, Ava being awesome (moreso than usual)“Justified” is hurtling towards its Season 3 finale, with only five episodes left. Zap2it has screened next Tuesday’s episode, “Loose Ends,” so we’re here to whet your appetite with some things you can look forward to with everyone’s favorite Deputy U.S. Marshal.

  • Ava and Raylan have a short scene together that has more chemistry in five minutes than Winona and Raylan have had in all their screen time put together. Is it hot in here?
  • Speaking of Ava – Team Ava is gonna like this episode because she’s even more awesome than usual.
  • Raylan and Boyd are once again kind of collaborating, as Boyd lets Raylan know how to get to Quarles.
  • Ol’ Delroy is back with some of his girls, still looking to commit some of that s***kicker on s***kicker crime.
  • There’s a guest-starring turn by an older lady (sorry, we do not know the actress’ name) as Tanner Dodd’s mother that is really rather sad and sweet. It was an unexpected storyline in the episode.
  • The Harlan County Sheriff’s election is upon us, with Boyd going all hillbilly Jed Bartlet at the VFW debate.
  • “Harlan County elections ain’t over ’til the dead have voted.”
  • And speaking of the dead, the body count in this episode is not small. Which is just the way we like it.

“Justified” airs Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
