It's episode five already? I knew I should've made a thread earlier, didn't realize how far we were already.
This series doesn't have enough episodes, but also apparently Psych could use a few more too. Shawn and Gus are going to be devastating when they find out Juliet's been shot thru (but maybe not dead?) It was good I didn't miss anything while spending the second half of the hospital scene muttering 'where do I know you from?', and I think Maggie Lawson did really good in her role, though I was totally distracted by the accent.
It was not really good for Raylan to try and confront Layla (Leila?) by himself when he's pretty well sure she's was up to no good. Tim's allowed to be in episodes besides ones where he's a sniper or drunk, I'm pretty sure. But maybe the connecting story here was Raylan being a bit too slow to pick up on signals from women.
I'm pretty sure that was a goodbye note, and the conversation at the start of the episode set it up, but I'm totally lost about how we got here. Winona was perfectly happy with Raylan at the beginning of the season and seemed to be accepting his life when I guess she was actually giving up on him. I just have no more clue how we got there than he seemed to.
Boyd defining "Carpetbagger" to the Carpetbagger, and Carpetbagger being both angry being called such a thing and being in complete agreement in the definition - he's going to profit, Boyd and his crew are going to do the work - was fine bit of acting. I don't like Boyd's odds this time.
I don't know how they get to another Dewey episode next year, but I hope they do. Mostly so I can hear more things like what a kidney is used for. Why doesn't anyone pay with cash anymore?
That was a weird cliffhanger, but I guess it was effective because now I really want to know what's in that letter. Like you said, I'm not sure what's changed now to make Winona clear out, especially after the first episode of the season where she was in the same room when Raylan almost got killed.
The reason she left him the first time was because he was never at home and she feared for his life, right? This is just a continuation of that. Shame she's going though (if that's indeed the direction they are taking), she kept Raylan grounded and made his character seem more fleshed out.
So, um....wow. The girlfriend and I checked this out last night after DVR'ing the pilot episode, which aired Wednesday. I think she summed it up well during the last commercial break: "what the hell is going on?" I felt like that too.
