With the last episode of Justified ending with the death of one of the Bennetts at Raylan’s hands, one expects that the “debts and accounts” of this most recent episode will involve something along the lines of “settling old debts” on the parts of the Bennetts. There’s plenty of tension in Harlan, with some of Harlan’s citizen not happy with Mags for the deal she made with the mining company. Raylan and Chief Mullen are also at odds, and Raylan and Winona aren’t exactly in a harmonious place either.
Mags is settling accounts in multiple ways, including closing down the marijuana business (or handing it over). She also seems to be cutting Dickie out of the family and out of the Black Pike mining company settlement. She also forbids Dickie from seeking revenge on Raylan. And Boyd is jumping heavily back into the world of crime, deciding the take on his father’s legacy.
This seems like a transitional episode, with relationships between characters shifting and changing.
