Everyone's facing off against everyone!
That's the general gist of what's to come the rest of this season on FX's Justified, if our chats with Walton Goggins and Mykelti Williamson are anything to go by anyway. In fact, they both teased major face-offs involving their characters, which Goggins calls his favorite scene ever and Williamson says is something that's never been seen on Justified before. Consider us sufficiently teased!
So what's ahead for Boyd and Ava (Joelle Carter)? Plus, how long can Goggins see the show going on for? And why should Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) fans be concerned?
Battle of the Brains: It's safe to say Boyd Crowder has met his match in Robert Quarles (Neal McDonough), and Goggins tells us there's a scene coming up between the two men that is his favorite scene he's ever filmed on the show. "Boyd has great respect for Quarles, but I can tell you this: There is a scene coming up between Boyd and Quarles that is one of my favorite scenes on Justified," he teases. "It sums up the way Boyd really feels about Robert Quarles that is poetic, like Boyd Crowder is. I think people will be quoting it. I hope so!"
As for Williamson, expect to see Limehouse face off against Raylan. He says fans should be nervous about their leading man. "There's some scenes coming up with Raylan Givens where the audience will see him face some of the most formidable evil foes that he's ever faced," Williamson says. "They're going to be amazed to see that the guy they're used to seeing get himself out of situations can't get himself out of every single situation. It's something to behold."
Who's the Big Bad? While Limehouse and Quarles have what Williamson calls "a partnership," he says fans should prepare to see Limehouse take evil to a whole new level. "Limehouse is not what you consider a dedicated partner. His intention is to get rid of everybody that he dislikes and the way he goes about it is something you've not seen on Justified before. It's really scary, freaky, completely two-faced, hateful and so much fun!"
Love Update: When asked what's coming up for Boyd and Ava, Goggins jokes, "I am trying to get them to make love as often as possible!" before telling us the couple's love will only grow stronger by season's end. "I think that something is going to happen this year during the finale that is going to make their bond stronger than it ever was before," he says. "I think you're going to see two people, if it's even possible, become even more love in possible and love each other even greater. That may make their judgment going forward a little hazy at times."
Six Seasons and a Movie: OK, maybe not the movie part, but Goggins' envisions the series, which was just renewed for a fourth season, ending after season six. "I feel like this show takes six years to tell it the way it needs to be told. If we're fortunate enough to keep our numbers up and we're fortunate enough to get the opportunity come back for a season five and a season six, then I think we will have told a story befitting of how far we've come."
So will we be seeing Limehouse in season four? "I have no idea," Williamson tells us. "I love the show, I love working on the show, but we just have to do if an invitation is extended and if I'm available at that time."
Justified airs tonight at 10 p.m. on FX.
