In this paper, we study the entanglement contour in a general excited state in the holographic 2d CFT using the partial entanglement entropy proposal. We show how the thermodynamics fixes the entanglement contour relating it to first law of entanglement. We derive the entanglement contour for a general time-dependent excited state and consider a quenched initial state in the presence of spatial boundaries as an explicit example. Finally, we comment on the coarse-graining and the complexity contour in the .
