longmire-highway-robbery

Bringing back two of the former deputy candidates, “Highway Robbery” sends Walt (Robert Taylor) on an investigation into a highway robbery and murder that left one dead and one unreliable witness (David Dean Bottrell) to the crime. The episode deals with one of the primary themes of the show in examining forgiveness versus vengeance as Walt discovers the crippled survivor of the attack was put in that condition by his dead “friend.” Despite marveling at the man’s ability to befriend the person responsible for his condition, Walt’s own experience with revenge makes the sheriff unable to completely buy the lone witness’ account of events.

While continuing to investigate Nighthorse’s (A Martinez) possible involvement in Branch‘s (Bailey Chase) death, Walt (Robert Taylor), Vic (Katee Sackhoff) and Ferg (Adam Bartley) look into the murder of a local history buff who obsessed with reopening a WWII Japanese Internment Camp as a national monument. The investigation in the CB enthusiast and history buff’s life yields an unexpected family connection and eventually the man’s murderer (Michelle Krusiec).

longmire-ashes-to-ashes

The second death of David Ridges (David Midthunder) brings all sorts of new facts to light in Longmire‘s Third Season finale. Ending Branch‘s (Bailey Chase) obsession, and his job with the sheriff’s department, the deputy chooses to take his father (Gerald McRaney) up on a job in the family business in order to get a better look at his father’s connection to Jacob Nighthorse (A Martinez). The season may end with Nighthorse still free, but it also ends with the identity of the killer behind the deaths of both Walt‘s (Robert Taylor) wife and Miller Beck revealed (although the person responsible for uncovering the truth may not make it to next season’s premiere).

longmire-population-25

Sometime coincidence can get you into all kinds of trouble. That’s the case for Vic (Katee Sackhoff) in “Population 25” when she and her husband Sean (Michael Mosley) are stranded on the side of the road a few miles out of town on their way to a romantic weekend. Things take a dark turn when the deputy goes for help by knocking on the first door she sees which just happens to be owned by the paranoid Chance Gilbert (Peter Stormare) and his cult of followers who don’t believe a word of Vic’s story and promptly take the deputy hostage. Although it casts Vic as a victim for the entire episode, “Population 25” offers an opportunity for Sackhoff to show-off her acting chops and provides a memorable ending that leaves the fate of the show’s title character in (at least a little) doubt.

longmire-reports-of-my-death

Walt (Robert Taylor) attempts to keep the death of a homeless man who was the long-lost heir to a $500 million fortune under wraps but the ensuing media frenzy makes it impossible. Things get even more interesting when another man (Parker Stevenson), this one very much alive, comes forward claiming to be the heir but not wanting any money from the family. Not knowing which is the real heir, Walt begins investigating the death of the homeless man which begins to look more and more like murder. After talking with the heir’s family (Kathleen York, Jamison Jones) and a private detective (Matt Roth), Walt puts the pieces of the mystery together and discovers the true identity of the dead man and the reasons behind his murder.

With Branch (Bailey Chase) on forced leave to recuperate (while actually still searching for David Ridges), and Walt (Robert Taylor) taking personal time to look up a few old enemies (Peter Stormare, Rodney Eastman, Kenneth Wayne Bradley) he believes capable of masterminding the the deaths of his wife, his wife’s killer, and Henry’s impending trail, Vic (Katee Sackhoff) is left in charge to deal with a missing rooster and a complaint by Mathias (Zahn McClarnon) that a Native American was drugged and kidnapped by two white men. When the man figures Travis (Derek Phillips) as one of his attackers, Vic begins to grow suspicious especially after Branch alibis his friend with a story so weak Vic immediately pokes holes in it.
