* RevisitingTheColdCase: Mob boss Theo Tonin killed a FBI informant but the murder could not be tied to him because the only witness, drug smuggler Drew Thompson, died when he jumped out of a plane and his parachute failed. Twenty years later, the US Marshals discover that Drew faked his own death and the dead body belonged to someone Drew killed. The Marshals reopen the case and try to track down Drew. They run into major problems since they have no photos of Drew and only a vague description based on two decade old memories.

** The story of Limehouse hiding his money under the floor of the Noble's Holler church has been told and retold so many times that it reached the status of an urban legend in Harlan County. The Limehouse might actually hide money there from time to time since no one believes the story anymore.

* OutsideContextVillain: Quarles initially appears as this with his big plans and the ability to turn people like [[spoiler: Wynn Duffy and Devil]] to be his accomplices. However, both Raylan and Boyd quickly figure out what type of villian he is and invert the trope on him revealing him to be too WrongGenreSavvy to understand how they are beating him.

* FeudingFamilies: The Bennett-Givens feud started during Prohibition when a Bennett thought a Givens had sold him out to the cops and killed him in revenge. Almost a century later there are suspiciously few Bennetts and Givens left in Harlan County. The women of the two families had kept a truce going for the last fifteen years but over the course of the second season it begins to heat up again. It ends with all but [[spoiler:Raylan, Arlo, Doyle's two young unseen children and Dickie dead]], and the latter in prison. In the second season's final five minutes, Raylan and Mags end the feud "as it should have ended years ago," by shaking hands over glasses of Mag’s home-made moonshine with Raylan unaware that [[spoiler:Mags has poisoned her own glass.]]

* CrossesTheLineTwice: A US Marshal playing a very real, potentially game of Russian Roulette with a criminal? Not funny, potentially a troubling sign that he's approaching HeWhoFightsMonsters territory. A US Marshal playing Russian Roulette with a usual cool and controlled criminal who is screaming "JESUS CHRIST! YOU'RE A COP!" at the top of his lungs? Hilarious.


Added DiffLines:

* EveryCarIsAPinto: Played with. An abandoned car by the side of the road does ''not'' explode when Tim shoots the gas tank. When he throws a Molotov cocktail at the pool of gas, which leads back to the explosives loaded in the vehicle? Yeah, then it explodes.

To "reward" Raylan for stopping the arms dealer, the Marshal is reassigned to Lexington, Kentucky. Now back in his native Harlan County, the place where he grew up, Raylan must deal with his duties as Marshal (protecting witnesses, tracking fugitives, and arresting bad guys) while dealing with his ex-wife, his estranged criminal of a father, and the dysfunctional and criminal Crowder family, including former coal mining buddy [[EnsembleDarkhorse Boyd Crowder]] (played by ex-''Series/TheShield'' star Creator/WaltonGoggins), and Boyd's sister-in-law turned girlfriend Ava. That's without mentioning the murderous Bennett clan (headed by the charming but evil Mags Bennett), the alligator-poaching, sugar-smuggling Crowes, and the various agents of the Dixie Mafia and the Detroit Mob.
