Raylan and the Detroit Police round up some promising suspects, provoking Carolyn's ire. Mansell and Sandy move on the Albanian mark. Things with Willa reach a breaking point.

Felt bad for his daughter at the end, but it'll be nice to not have her around for a bit since I assume she'll return at some point.

I hope she’s gone for good. The 3 eps with her in it were excruciating and now Raylan can go back to being Raylan.

I hope the daughter and her baby voice never returns. She's almost ruined the show.

I was ready to swear if they pulled the 'she didn't really get/stay on the plane' nonsense. I suppose they still could, but if they were going to it would've seemed more likely to happen during this episode.

It was a little bit disappointing just HOW stupid/gullible the Albanian guy was. I know he was supposed to be drunk, but the whole ruse just seemed too obvious.

Was I supposed to give a damn about any of the developments in this episode? I did not.

Sadly, I did not either. I hope the daughter never returns. I miss the old characters, or maybe more so Raylan's interactions with them (Art, Boyd, Tim, etc.). This ep. just did nothing for me, and the bad guy seems like a cartoon character. And I really wanted to like this...

I’ll stick this out, but this show stinks as of now. There are no characters to like.

Justified is among my all-time favorite shows and yet I'm simply not enjoying this at all. Almost none of the non-Raylan characters/actors interest me in the least.

Kind of sad that TWD was my hate watch show for the last 5 or so seasons, and i have enjoyed Dead City, more than this Justified. I would have never guessed that with how much I love Justified. We rewatched the whole Justified series in 2 weeks before this started. Im just bummed. I was looking so forward to this.

For what it's worth, IMDB lists
Spoiler:
the Willa character as only appearing in 3 episodes and others listed in all 8. Doesn't mean something can't change, but just something I noticed.

Thank God. She is one of the most excruciating characters Ive come across in some time, and it was starting to feel like she was purposely put in to torpedo the show. Really hope it can get on track with her and her "storyline" out of the way.

Ill stick with it, but just out of nostalgia and love for Raylan and the previous series, but as of now, there havent been many bright spots.
