‘Justified’ Season 4 Spoilers: Mykelti Williamson’s Limehouse Returns!
Now that ‘Justified‘s fourth season has officially premiered with this week’s “Hole in the Wall,” spoilers and gossip for the coming season of FX’s gunslinger drama have run rampant. We’ve already heard from series show-runner Graham Yost that the fourth year for Raylan Givens will break away from the “villain of the year” format to delve into a decades-long mystery, pushing some of our favorite recurring characters to the side, but at least one major figure is confirmed to return. Break out the barbecue, and head inside to learn how Mykelti Williamson’s crime lord Ellstin Limehouse returns!
With Margo Martindale’s Mags Bennett drinking apple pie in the sky, ‘Justified’ season 3 stepped up to bring us several major new Harlan County figures, notably that of Mykelti Williamson’s Noble’s Holler overlord Ellstin Limehouse. And while ‘Justified’ show-runner Graham Yost recently told us that season 4′s ongoing “Waldo Truth” mystery would prevent return appearances from fan-favorite characters like Dewey Crowe (Damon Herriman) and Dickie Bennett (Jeremy Davies), now TVLine has confirmed that Limehouse at least will return.
Only one episode deep into the season, no details are known of what would bring the arm-cleaving Limehouse back into the picture, though TVLine confirmed Yost only agreed to reprise the character after writers “found a way to meaningfully weave him into season 4′s narrative.”
In addition to the recent casting of ‘LOST‘s’ Sam Anderson as a shady funeral home director, ‘Justified’ season 4 has already introduced Ron Eldard as Colton Rhodes, a military police sergeant with ties to Boyd Crowder, and comedian Patton Oswalt as Raylan’s old friend Constable Bob Sweeney. David Meunier will reprise his role as Johnny Crowder for 10 episodes, and Natalie Zea will be back as Winona for at least three despite her ongoing commitment to FOX’s ‘The Following.’
What say you? Are you excited to see one of ‘Justified’s season 3 baddies make his grand return? Could a one-armed Quarles ever menace Raylan again? Tell us in the comments what you want to see from Mykelti Williamson as ‘Justified’ season 4 unfolds on FX!
