However, the continuing mess the writers were making of the portrayal of Walt Longmire's deputy Vic(toria) Moretti's character is right at the very top of the opening. It is more than distressing to see the actress, Katee Sackhoff, wasted this way: she's wearing unbelievably tight jeans and boots with really preposterous heels, has her shirt open almost to her navel, and her hair ironed.
She pecks and pats and preens herself over and over, looking in the mirror, carrying a six-pack of beer, and is just "dropping in by chance" on Walt Longmire -- her boss, btw, and much older than she is. Even her voice is different, higher, all giggly, she wiggles her butt literally. This is wrong and I hate it and so must most of the women who watch this series. It's been strongly suggested that the audience for Longmire are more female than male, which is another reason A&E wasn't keeping it around.
