The second season of Justified is better than the first. You are past most of the basic background storytelling and now it gets into specifics. This time Raylan is dealing with a family feud that has lasted over 70 years with the Bennetts, and the best villain in awhile is in charge of that family as Mags Bennett (played by Margo Martindale), the matriarch of the Bennett family who control the town of Bennett.
She is my favorite character of the season (followed closely by Raylan and Boyd). Watching how she deals with her sons, while Raylan deals with his being to close too the edge is definitely interesting.
The only real frustration I had was people’s reaction to Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) trying to go straight. Funny enough I have seen similar things like that in real life, but I was so frustrated that he couldn’t get a break.
Overall though, the season is good, I don’t want to go into too much, but you will also care for a 14 year old girl. That is all I will say though.
Pros: Still great acting and writing, and of course the highly acclaimed character actress Margo Martindale is the best part.
Cons: Frustrated with some plot things and how people got treated, but we can’t have everything we want.
Season 3 is in the queue.
