Okay, dear Justified fandom. I need you to look closely. This was on Justified’s facebook page. This picture. It accompanied a post that has nothing to do with what I’m about to point out. But this is actually insane and I can’t believe I picked it up.
Look at the newspaper clipped in Raylan’s work space, on Raylan’s right, a little bit behind him. It says “Holden Set Free”. Who’s Holden you might ask? Daniel Holden. The main character of the tv show Rectify, created by Ray McKinnon who played the preacher in Deadwood as well as a hitman in the first season of Justified. That newspaper shows up in the title credits of Rectify as well as in the show itself.
Justified and Rectify are in the same universe.
Also, Walton Goggins was originally supposed to play Daniel Holden a few years ago, but there were production problems which caused Goggins to join Justified.
Here’s the opening titles for Rectify: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQCM-fg7o3g

I’m fucking done. Deadwood cast is one big family that will never stop loving each other.
