1. Raylan vs. Mags Bennett and Poison
Thereís no doubt in my mind, and probably not in anyone elseís, that Mags Bennett has been the best villain weíve seen throughout each of the seasons of Justified. Mags was sharp-witted and she had a mind to build an empire, if it wasnít for the meddling of her idiot sons. There are plenty of good match-ups between Mags and Raylan throughout Season 2, but the best is probably a moment between Mags, the young Loretta, and the U.S. Marshal.
Mags was already in bad shape by the time Raylan returned to see her at the end of Season 2 with Loretta shooting her in the leg to avenge her fatherís death. In fact, Raylan had been shot in the stomach, so it wasnít his best day on the job, either. Still, the two sit down to talk and the feud is settled, but Mags gets one final act of revenge, killing herself with some poison from the hills as she drank some of her famous apple pie moonshine, and thus ending an era of crime in Harlan County.
