‘Justified’ season 6: Joelle Carter explains Ava, her ‘new role’ and loving the character

The FX show Justifed continues to heat up as this is confirmed to be the final season. Timothy Olyphant’s Raylan Givens stalks Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) with Ava in the middle. Joelle Carter talked with EW about Ava and her character’s change in the latest episode,  “Noblesse Oblige.”

While admitting that “love blinds people,” Carter talks about Boyd finding out that she’s working with Raylan.

“I think he’s suspicious. I was definitely playing, in my mind, for the first couple of episodes, that she thinks he knows. That’s where a lot of the fear, for Ava, is coming from. I don’t think Walton was working with the same thing, but … it’s a cat and mouse game right now. Until this third episode, I think I realized I have to work both of these guys. I have to see where my best opportunity is.”

Carter says “…I think she was trying to avoid the actual situation in the first two episodes by not really conducting with Boyd again, and she wouldn’t have information to give Raylan. Then the reality hit when Raylan told her that if she doesn’t deliver, she’s going back to prison. She actually has to play the game.”

Carter details the role Raylan plays, how or why he’s sympathetic and what’s dynamic there. She then exudes her love for the role and character with EW.

And it kind of comes back to the two guys, and what’s familiar in their lives and what’s kind of affected them, and it’s Ava. It’s a connection that they have that they have to deal with. She’s forced to be an informant for Raylan, and is stuck in a love-hate relationship with Boyd, and I think she just wants sweet liberation. Then having that scene with Sam Elliott and Garret Dillahunt, she realizes … that fear of knowing that she’s losing control over what might happen to her if she stays in the Boyd situation and if she stays in the Raylan situation. You’re really going to see her try to manipulate both of these guys.”
