Our Pick: Episode 13, “Restitution”
It’s the final scene of this episode that justifies (sorry) whatever meandering turns the rest of the season may have taken: Ava agrees to snitch on Boyd for Raylan, and the two meet at night on a bridge to talk. In a beautiful callback to the pilot, where Ava greeted Raylan with “The minute you walked in I knew everything was going to be all right,” Raylan replies to Ava’s admission of gut-churning fear with, “Don’t be.
