IGN - Season 2 was very strong. Margo Martindale brought to life Mags Bennett, an old-school Harlan County power maven that stopped the coal companies from drilling in the hills. The Bennetts and the Givens' had a feud, as people in Harlan County are wont to do, and the Bennetts ended up on bottom. Mags was a tragic character—she loved and protected her sons and that love ended up being the death of her. Martindale deserved the Emmy she got for her work, even if the Golden Globes then somehow forgot her. Ultimately, the only Bennett to survive was the hobbled sociopath Dickie Bennett, played very well by Lost alum Jeremy Davies, whose actions have put him on Boyd's hit list.
