Justified: Lord of War and Thunder

Raylan Givens returned to Kentucky for this week’s episode of Justified, “The Lord of War and Thunder.” Raylan has some father issues, as you might expect for a U. S. Marshal whose father has a criminal past (and possibly present). It was good to have a Raylan-centered episode, but from a western perspective, this episode is not one of the ones with many western elements. Even the references to specific genre westerns that have been present in many episodes were few and far between here. Although, we do learn that as a child, when Raylan went to his aunt’s house (usually, to escape his father), he took advantage of her cable television to watch Rawhide and Have Gun Will Travel, and I can only applaud his extremely good taste in television westerns.
