Four Years Later (1937-1938). After expanding her Glendale eatery to include a Beverly Hills luncheonette, Mildred and Lucy, her best friend and junior business partner, eye Laguna Beach as the site for a new oceanfront restaurant, with a seafood-and-steak menu. However, Mildred's business success is tempered by a growing rift with Veda, who despairs when her longtime piano teacher dies and a prospective replacement, well-known conductor Carlo Treviso, is less than complimentary. Stung by rejection, Veda ends up in the company of society loafer Sammy Forrester, whose mother surprises Mildred with shocking allegations about their children. When Mildred confronts Veda, an emotional argument ensues and Mildred angrily throws her out of the house. After months with no communication between the two, Bert tells Mildred about Veda's success as a singer on the radio. Listening to Veda sing, Mildred is pained by her daughter's estrangement, and is determined to win her back.

1931-1933. In the wake of unspeakable tragedy, Mildred moves forward with preparations for her new chicken-and-pie restaurant. After a slow start on opening night, the restaurant fills to capacity, and Mildred gladly welcomes Ida--her former fellow waitress at the diner--to help manage the frenzy. Among the guests is Monty, who wastes no time reacquainting himself with Mildred, and impressing Veda with his refined stature. At Monty's suggestion, Mildred hires a new piano teacher for Veda, but is unable to buy her a new piano when the repeal of prohibition forces her to add a bar to the restaurant. As Veda grows resentful, Mildred chafes at the indolent Monty and his extravagant lifestyle, culminating in an emotional New Year's Eve faceoff.

Question: I'm really surprised by the lack of comment (here and elsewhere) on this season of Justified. It had a lot to live up to after that near-perfect second season and (in my opinion) has been maintaining the standard extremely well. I haven't enjoyed TV-show dialogue this much since The West Wing went off the air. read more
