LOVED it from start to finish. This show has some of the best writing of any show out there.

"Pre- or post-disco?" "You ladies have a nice night."

Loved the scene w/the FBI too--great exchange.

All the familiar faces really made this episode feel like "Deadwood 2012". With what we now know about
Spoiler:
Quarles' violent sexual tendencies
, I'm getting the feeling he's the Francis Wolcott of Justified. I also loved the Coen brothers-style lines that Boyd Crowder had during his confrontation with Raylen. He would have fit nicely into 'Raising Arizona'.

This was a great episode. Moving at a fast pace, good writing and acting, I really enjoyed it.

IMO this season has been the best the show has ever seen, and I LOVED the first 2. The writing and acting by everyone involved is completely untouchable.

Expect one of the characters to be leaving/written out:

Spoiler:
http://www.deadline.com/2012/02/natalia-zea-cast-in-kevin-williamsons-fox-pilot-robert-wisdom-joins-abcs-nashville/

Natalie Zea (Winona) is joining the cast of the new Untitled FOX Pilot starring Kevin Bacon.

Although, it is somewhat feasible for her to do both with staying on Justified as a recurring guest star.

I had to rewind that scene several times just because I liked the dialogue so much. Just watched it again, in fact. Unbelievable writing and acting.

Hey, I called it right last week on Quarles' weird sextracurricular activities.

Agree with everyone on the dialogue being crackling this episode. Loved the other Marshal (was it Tim the sniper?) giving Raylan shit for all the favors he was asking. And any Raylan/Boyd interaction is gold.

This season doesn't have a villain (or performance) to match Mags, but I'd agree.

Every hour long show I recorded this past week and weekend cut off after 39 minutes. I'm going to have to wait for On Demand or another airing to see the rest of the episode. Arrgggghhhh!

Man I've been hoping that would happen. That's great news. She was out of her depth in this show, and brought the show down every time she was in an episode.
