Justified Season 3 Episode 3 Harlan Roulette Review. Justified: Season 3, Episode 3: 15 Harlan Roulette introduced a new disreputable character into the show while solidifying two previosuly introduced ones that are growing in importance to the plot of this season.
The aggressive qualities of the bad guys in this episode were good but none of the three was a force to be reckoned with like Mags Bennett was, not yet anyway. Shooting someone is not the same as intimidating and controlling them.
What was very surprising in the episode was that the prison guard Ash Murphy (Todd Stashwick) would risk his job and his pension (in this day and age) for a possible pay day, a pay day of an undetermined amount. He thinks it might be a large amount of money but he has no way of knowing.
The truck crash was hilarious but that is what happens when you hire buffoons and tweekers as your retainers on the cheap.
The Russian Roulette game was one of the best moments of the episode but one of low intelligence when it comes to Glen Fogle (Pruitt Taylor Vince). Blowing a man’s brains out on your floor leaves evidence of the crime the naked eye can not see. Now he has to deal with that on his premises. The high point of the scene, besides the retainer playing Roulette twice, is that the victim, before his end, showed that he had the guts to take his boss out at point blank range.
