Spoiler alert! The final scene of Justified’s season 5 finale set up where Ava (Joelle Carter) will be when the show returns for its final episodes in 2015: between Boyd (Walton Goggins) and Raylan (Timothy Olyphant). To get out of jail, Ava accepted a deal to provide information on Boyd and his associates. Will she survive the final season? “It really is the question: We know it’s gonna come down to Raylan and Boyd, but what’s gonna happen to Ava?” exec producer Graham Yost said in our finale postmortem.
We asked Carter’s opinion when she phoned in to Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM 105) Wednesday to chat about the season finale on the TV Editor’s Hour. Listen to an excerpt below in which she discusses Ava’s decision to turn rat, where she believes Ava’s loyalty will land, and whether she wants Ava to go out in a glorious Justified-y blaze or ride off into the sunset.
