The only reason I watch A&E is to watch Longmire. The season finale was funny, exciting, and heartbreaking. His son, Branch (The Connallys have some crazy names) , the sheriff's deputy, figured out that Barlow had Walt's wife killed. Thats a little flip about mental illness so no offense to anyone. Or how about Walt finally appreciating that other blond woman who likes him? If Barlow is dead, he is going to need Walt more than ever. Penny I agree with you that Branch taking up his fathers company would be an interesting storyline if he doesnt get back to being a deputy. Hopefully in season 4 we will see more humorous interactions between Walt and Henry, I would love to know more about their history, and of course it would be great to see Walt and Vic finally have some happiness together.

It was innocent, but she drew the conclusion it wasnt. Getting sick of their lack of information and promotion for Longmire. Lucian is eccentric crazy, a lot of fun, love the character but I worry a bit when he is carrying a gun. This is a good series. Sorry, this is terribly long but like everybody else Ashes to Ashes left me with so many thoughts and questions. There are so many better story arcs for Henrys character. It works in the books and it took Craig about four books/four years to get there. I think the writers might go in a different direction than killing one of them off. Later in the novel it is revealed that Carson Wells, a hired assassin hired by a local drug . Very much appreciated.
