'Justified' Stars Tease the Rest of Season 5 and 'Something Extraordinary' for Boyd in the Finale
Michael Rapaport as Darryl Crowe, Jr. and Timothy Olyphant as Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens in 'Justified'
The preview for Tuesday's new "Justified" episode — "The Toll" — reveals Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Art Mullen (Nick Searcy) getting critically wounded in the line of duty, and marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) hot on the trail of the person who shot Art.
The duo's uneasy father/son relationship has been extra rocky as of late, as Art became privy to info that suggests Raylan's usual rebellion may have taken a turn into full-on, highly illegal activities, and Raylan all but 'fessed up to the crime. So now that Art's laying in a hospital bed in critical condition, and the tension between Raylan and his boss remains unresolved, Raylan's fully committed to making Art's shooter pay. Not surprisingly, all fingers seem to point to the Crowe family, namely psychotic family head Darryl (Michael Rapaport).
Meanwhile, Raylan's childhood friend and adult nemesis Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) continues to see his own carefully-plotted life unravel, also thanks in large part to his association with Darryl and the Crowes.
The cast talked to Yahoo TV on the red carpet for last week's Television Academy evening with the "Justified" gang, and shared some big scoop on what we can expect for the final three episodes of Season 5:
Things may not get better for Boyd, but there is at least one major surprise in store:
"It's been a tough season emotionally for Boyd and for me as an actor," Walt Goggins said. "But I think there will be a surprise at the end of the season that was so unexpected to all of us in how we kind of got there. I think that's kind of the greatest win [Boyd] could have, but it's complicated, you know, like last season. He got everything he ever dreamed of, and yet he lost the thing that was most important to him. And this season, I don't want to give it away, but something extraordinary's going to happen."

Raylan and Boyd have been on very divergent paths this season, and have shared little screen time. That changes in the season's penultimate episode, April 1's "Starvation":
"We've been so far apart this year and both in our own worlds, and I think it was a good decision on behalf of [executive producer] Graham [Yost], because we're going into our last season, and there's going to be a fair amount of crossover," Goggins said. "He's going to come into my sight line in a real way and I'm going to come into his crosshairs. So I think it was smart to keep us apart as long as they did, but we've got a lot of interaction coming up in Episode 12 that I think will be big."
