Rest in peace, Elmore Leonard. It’s going to be sad and sweet and sad to see the inevitable “In Memory Of” on the season five premiere. His books and his sweet personality and his enthusiasm for what they were doing with his favorite people will be so sorely missed. At least we’ll have a couple more seasons carrying the torch, the way Elmore wanted.

If you read just one interview, the Q+LA one is a gem. Of all the great endorsements for Justified, here’s the one that counts the most:

"Writers—all writers, even screenwriters—like to make their mark. I don’t think many screenwriters can write. They pass as writers. But it’s not like that with this show. When they sent me the first script, I read it and didn’t see a word to change. It was perfect."
