Creator previews remainder of ‘Justified’ season 5, is Boyd over his head

Justified is heading quickly to an end, with season 6 set to be the show’s final.

Creator Graham Yost talked with Crave Online in a Feb. 6 interview about the show in season 5 and beyond, beginning with Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) and the new deal to run heroin with the Mexicans.

Goggins’ character seems to be unhinged with juggling many different subplots.

“I think Boyd is in the water up to his chin and the water’s still rising. He can still breathe but it’s pretty touch and go. I think that there’s so much competing for his attention. He wants to focus on getting Ava out but he needs to make money and he’s made this deal with Duffy so it’s just a lot of plates for him to keep spinning.”

Yost wouldn’t speak to Eva’s time in jail, but recounted the decision to bring in the Crowe crime family, headed by Michael Rapaport.

“What it was is that we just decided we wanted more Dewey this season. We’d had him sit out last season. We wanted to keep him special and keep him in reserve and when we’re going to go to Dewey, we’re going to go big. So when we made that decision, what came from that was what about other Crowes? Crowes are a big part of Elmore’s books. Let’s think about bringing a real big clan of Crowes in.”

Yost credits the develop of the Crowe characters, not in the Elmore Leonard books, to Rapaport, saying “And a lot of it just became what Rapp [Michael Rapaport] was doing. Okay, then that’s it. He’s funny and he’s big and he’s charming and he’s scary, so let’s go that way.”
