Shane: Oh, come on, Lem. That’s like four hundred thousand pesos, man. That’s gotta be what, like, like, a couple hundred grand?
Lem: Try fifty.
Rizal: Eh, that’s about right.
Shane: Damn. Mexico.
In honor of Boyd Crowder wheeling and dealing in Mexico, never forget that Shane Vendrell could wheel and deal in Mexico with the best of ‘em too.

Yes, they do, and a great one at that. Ms. Ava Crowder herself: Joelle Carter on survival instincts and Ava’s transformation.
And that’s what we saw her try to do [fit into Boyd’s world], and the outcome is that now she’s in prison, and in a whole different world where she has to step up and reinvent herself. It’s something to say for the human spirit. I think we throw people into the sewer, and the strong ones figure out how to swim, and the other ones drown. And I’m really happy that Ava is a swimmer right now.
I’d started writing about this latest episode when I read this, and unless I get to the end and scrap it all and write something else (which has only happened once), I’m already writing at least in part about survival and transformation. Just great timing for what Joelle says, all the way around.
Thank you, kind stranger. I appreciate the tip! I doubt I would have seen this interview otherwise.
"What was I thinking?"
"Honestly, I don’t think I’m doing anything different this season than I’ve done in any other seasons. It’s just now on the up and up with the title, meaning I’ve been a big pain in their ass from the jump. I was never not a pain in the ass. It’s now just "official pain in the ass." That title is not available, so instead they gave me co-executive producer."
Anyone else excited to see to see the excellent Wood Harris on last nights episode of Justified?
Wood Harris portrayed Avon “The game is the game. Always” Barksdale on The WIRE!
With his real-life brother, Steve Harris, as well.
There were Avon-like moments in some of his character’s dialogue, which made me happy.
