In the new season of FX's terrific Justified, Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) has a new adversary in the back-country dust: Mags Bennett, ruthless matriarch of a rural drug ring. Margo Martindale, one of TV's best character actresses, plays her with a slow drawl and a squint sharp enough to skin a jackrabbit. If she offers you a sip of moonshine, decline-it's got a kick that's literally lethal.
