[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from the Season 1 finale of Justified.]
Few were left standing at the end of Justified's bloody first-season finale, but among the survivors was Walton Goggins' Boyd Crowder, a character who has escaped death twice this season.
"We just loved M.C Gainey's performance, and so we haven't decided," Yost says when asked if Bo is really dead. Yost says the same is also true of Johnny Crowder (David Meunier), who Bo shot and left for dead at Ava's house. "We didn't see either one of them die. We saw them go down, but we don't know for sure they're dead. If we want to keep them alive, we will, but we haven't decided that yet."
As for Raylan's love life, Season 2 might present a more clearly defined love triangle, now that Winona and Raylan slept together again. "[Winona] is freaked out by what happened, but she is interested," Yost says. "Raylan will always be the true love of her life. That doesn't mean she can live with him. He stirs a passion in her that Gary doesn't. ... Raylan's always going to be the guy for her, and to an extent, Winona's always going to be the woman for Raylan."
Yost says that during the hiatus, the writers will re-examine this season to strike a better balance between serialized storytelling and standalone episodes. He also hopes to better incorporate the supporting characters into the plot, as many of them vanished late in the season.
