Justified s3 ep3

A slow burn of an episode, this, taking considerable time to get going before eventually bursting into life. 

The first half was spent with the various criminal groups in Harlan getting themselves into position for whatever oxy-related battle is coming: rich characterisation, yes, but all the staring and loaded conversations meant I was getting a little restless until the thoroughly terrifying game of “Harlan Roulette” glued me to my chair.  From then on it was chilling, exciting stuff with the exasperated but infinitely cool Raylan’s blackly comic confrontations with Wade and Fogel, and his electrifying encounter with Wynn Duffy and Quarles, each fantastic in their own way, and more than making up for the slightly ponderous start.
