Last night we watched episode 2.10 of Justified.

It opened with Mags Bennett and Helen Givens (Mags is played by an actor in her late 50s; Helen is supposed to be about the same age, but I can't find the actor's birthdate) having an intense conversation about whether to keep the peace in Harlan County or let violence erupt.

It's a tossup whether it passed the Bechdel test -- the incident that threatens the peace involves their sons, so at least part of the time they're talking about men -- but even if it doesn't, it's a meaty scene featuring talented older women, which is awesome.

And then later in the episode, Winona was behaving in a way that frankly made no sense (as she often seems to) and I realized it's because the writers rarely, if ever, consider the character's actions from her POV; she's there solely to say or do things they need said or done to Raylan.
