People who are definitely dead - Mags (this was a bit too melodramatic, though they did the best they could do with it) - Doyle - Various Bennett goons
People who have wounds to the side which may or may not be serious - Ava - Raylan (though he seemed to be getting around fine)
People who are somehow not dead - Dickie!
They pretty much left the circumstances to Dickie getting out of jail last episode up to our imagination. They also never explicitly explained how Doyle's deputy was helping out Boyd, but it's not a stretch to figure he passed on the Bennett's plans.
Putting aside letting Mags die right in front of him without calling for help, I think Raylan may have redeemed himself slightly in Art's eyes for just being crazy enough to face off with the Bennetts and their guns. I believe something happened with Winona and Art - Art was going to leave Raylan to meet his own end when we last saw him, and then suddenly he (and sniper Tim) turned up at the end. Did Winona confess to taking the money? (I kinda NEED some reason for the change of heart, because it's just too easy without it.)
The whole theme of trying to escape the life of Harlan County nicely finished off with Loretta literally returning to it. That, and Boyd/Raylan/Dickie were really the high points of the episode.

The showdown between Raylan, Boyd, and Dickie might have been my favorite moment from the whole season, and I think it'll probably have repercussions throughout the next season. I can only assume Dickie's not dead because they want him to play a part going forward also. He is really hatable, so I can see that. Finally, when Winona told Raylan she was pregnant, I was 100% certain she was going to die by the end of the episode, so that was kind of surprising. I guess we'll have to see what happens with that next season also. So, a lot of interesting dangling threads waiting to be picked up.
A masterpiece. It honestly seemed like a documentary rather than 'a movie,' and kudos to Linklater and his team for keeping this project alive for all these years and paying it off in such a great fashion.
