[The following story contains spoilers from this Wednesday's episode of Justified.]

In one of its most intense episodes to date, FX’s Justified this Wednesday came out with all guns a-blazing – literally, in some cases.

The first swath of the edge-of-your-seat hour was spent at the whoop-dee-doo that Mags Bennett threw, hoping to unite locals in the cause against Black Pike’s plan to “blow the top off” the mountain and, in doing so, soil their holler with slurry and such.
