TV Equals: "In this week’s Justified, Ava takes off, causes a whole lot of trouble, and ultimately accomplishes nothing. One could argue that it’s her fault for acting impulsively, but she’s surrounded by psychopaths who could turn on her at any moment. That’d be enough to send most people into a panic. The real blame lies with Raylan. It’s his job to protect Ava, and his advice to her hasn’t exactly been reassuring. Maybe it’s their history, or whatever else still lingers between them, but Raylan and Ava need to start improving their communication skills."
