JUSTIFIED: Burned | Season 6 Episode 9 Recap

Listen to the Podcast

Head straight to the end zone and do the Ickey Shuffle, because it’s time to talk about the latest episode of JUSTIFIED!

Boom goes the dynamite right underneath a bank vault in a pizza shop, as Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) recap the latest episode of the FX drama’s final season. In the episode, “Burned,” Boyd Crowder nearly lives up to the episode title, while Raylan Givens confronts Ava Crowder on where her true loyalties lie. A new enemy enters the mix in the form of gunslinging Boon, a new side of Wynn Duffy emerges for only authorities and viewers to see, and Avery Markham prepares drastic measures against an unexpected foe: Loretta McCready.

After this week, only four episodes of JUSTIFIED remain. Stick with us and get your questions and comments along in the space below, through our feedback form, or by hitting us up on Twitter @PostShowRecaps.

Justified returns with the 6th and final season Jan 20th on FX.[/caption]

    -Four episodes left. The end game is really starting to unravel. I’m not so sure that they CAN”T kill Loretta anymore, now that she has gone full Mags, and has struck a deal with Boyd, who’s not really in a great position to even help her. Boyd is so screwed right now.

    -I like the new Gunslinger kid, I feel like I’ve seen him before but looking at his IMDB, can’t really figure out where from. He’s one of those, “hey it’s that guy” dudes on TV lately.
    -Is it bad that I was slightly turned on by Katherine Hale when she shot Seabass through her purse? I mean, c’mon, that was incredibly hot…

  • Brendan Fitzpatrick

    Are you guys disappointed that you almost had it right with Boyd getting trapped in mine? That moment was terrifying as a viewer, and incredibly well acted by Walton Goggins. I thouight for sure he wouldnt make it out in one piece, not that he’d die, but just be trapped next episode.

  • Brendan Fitzpatrick

    It’s really hard to take a character named Boon(e) seriously, so I’m refusing to call him Boon, and i’m instead just going to refer to him as “Gunslinger”.

      Isn’t Boone also a Kentucky name? I was sure Daniel Boone was from Kentucky.

      • Brendan Fitzpatrick

        Yes, Daniel Boone is from Kentucky, and Im sure that’s who they named him after. My brain went to Boone from Lost first, for some reason.

  • Brendan Fitzpatrick

    It’s actually a pretty perfect analogy to bring up Music Man guys, as Avery Markum showed up in town, exactly like Professor Harold Hill does in River City..”We’ve got trouble friends…”.

      Or is Boyd the Harold Hill of the show?

      • Antonio Mazzaro

        Boyd is Harold Hill I think. Maybe Quarles. Calhoun died before we could get our Buddy Garrity/Hackett fix.

  • susan appleby

    Does anyone respect the law in Harlan? I didn’t get why the kid would flash his gun in front of Raylan and why Loretta would say Boyd was her partner. She went way too far.

    • Brendan Fitzpatrick

      Everyone is definitely getting more careless (and it’s a little meta, cause that’s how you ramp up the tension in the writers room, for the end game of the series). I’m willing to forgive it.

      • Brendan Fitzpatrick

        Susan, I DID notice Ava’s stunning dress last night, during the final bar scene, didn’t notice it until then. It was really nice looking.

      This is my favorite one of these style Geico commercials they’ve done, cracks me up every time.

    Just for the record, the actual Pizza Portal in Harlan sells Tshirts and other stuff.

    • Antonio Mazzaro

      I want to go to there. If Josh ever comes to KY, we will, and will dispatch from the Portal.

  • WOOOOO!!! Gettin some cold cuts!!! WOOOO!!!

  • Hannah

    Any chance Boyd steals from Loretta instead of Markham?

    • Antonio Mazzaro

      Interesting, wonder where her money is. Noble’s?

  • Rory

    Loretta’s speech in the Pizza Portal was reminiscent of recent tribal councils. She just layed it all out on the table, regardless of the fact that a lawman, her biggest threat and half the town was listening. “This is my alliance, you’re my enemy, here’s my plan now let’s let the jury decide”. The evolution of Justified strategy?

    • Antonio Mazzaro

      TEOJS?

  • Emily

    Yes, at the party Boon did say he came to Kentucky from Colorado. Can’t remember the exact dialogue, but they talked about it for sure. It stuck out because he said something… Dammit, my memory sucks. Well, I can’t wait to see more of him. Hope he faces off with Raylan, and dies in spectacular fashion.
    And I was so confused about Ava’s motivation and what she did this episode, the discussion in the podcast definitely cleared that up for me. She’s just positioning herself to go out with the winner when this is all over.
    I thought it was so funny that someone like Avery Markham is being sort of intimidated by a teenage girl. But, a completely badass teenage girl. Man, I am just a huge fan of Loretta McCready. Always have been. And her and Boyd together is just freakin tv gold. Two amazing actors with the best dialogue on the show. I hope we have some more scenes of them together, but realistically, we probably won’t.

    • Antonio Mazzaro

      I gotta say, I am worried about Loretta more than I probably should be. She is a badass, but we forget she is also still really young, and hasn’t exactly had the easiest go of it.
