Quarles- "I'm just gonna put a smile on my face, and eat a nice plate of steaming shit...unsalted."
"The Man Behind The Curtain" marked the midway point of Justified's third season, and what a first half it has been.To read the rest of my review of last night's Justified, head over to TV Fanatic.
This week's installment might not have matched the bar set by some of the episodes that came before it, but it succeeded in moving many pieces around before we head down the back stretch of the season.
There may not have been an exciting episodic story, but the eponymous Robert Quarles made up for that with sheer intrigue. We learned so much new information about him, both in actual history, as well as in what he is like after watching put his hand in all of those different honey jars.
Quarles is investigating Raylan, he is trying to figure out Boyd's deal, he's bribing the sheriff, he's handling his pseudo brother Sammy, and by the end of the hour, he is paying a visit to Gary Hawkins in Tulsa.
