Couple things, best episode in the shows history first of all. Best acting in the shows history, best direction (thanks Peter weller) and best writing

Now this episode even more than the end of season 3 caught me by surprise. Sons of anarchy has always been about baiting you and them switching but today it was really shocking. Loved it

The emotion in this episode was crazy, Gemma and clay, juice and clay, Jax and clay, Nero and Gemma, Jax and tara,

Go down the list, incredible

Now up until this point the best moment in the shows history was end of season 4 when Jax walked to the table, became king, understood the gravity of what that meant, sat down, and then Tara took her place as queen

But now, there is a new best moment and I'd argue it was one of the smartest moments in tv history, truly incredible writing that gave me chills and the actors performed it to perfection

When clay was standing by the van after Jax shot gaalen and asked Jax "so what are you gonna do president" and then Jax had clay outline the best course of action. And you saw it in his face that he realized that was exactly what was happening and in a bittersweet moment he realized that he had created the man who would kill him. Incredible. For him to outline his own death and Jax to show his merit as a king by thinking the same way clay does. Just fantastic

And then the guns handed to him and he does it. But he's reserved, he's not angry Jax, he's composed as a king, getting the job done. "this time it was unanimous"

That scene was one of the best television moments I've ever seen. This season has two more episodes left, I can honestly say had the season ended today it would go down as the best season in the shows history

With 2 more episodes I worry about this arc dragging because huge stuff happened today and most of it made for perfect season finale cliffhanger stuff but now there is two more episodes and I wonder if the show can pick back up and still deliver a powerful finale because now the season is fighting itself, the finale can't be less impactful than this episode. That would to some extent hurt the seasons overall ranking in my book

Other side is the next two episodes can be just incredible and elevate this season into the pantheon of all time grea television seasons

^ Don't forget Gemma & Unser.

 

Although nothing needed to be said, a part of me wanted Jax to tell Clay about  the bad & evil things Clay did. Perhaps as a way to release all that's inside of him. The shot in the neck was a not so slow & painful way to go. That whole part of the plan worked out great. 

 

WTF is Tera gonna do? She's so close to bringing the whole club down.

 

Jax needs his next move to be just as good if the club wants Happy back in one piece. 

 

And i'm hyped The Mayans make a return in the next episode!

It was the most satisfying episode in a while.

Easily could've been a finale.

^ I don't think so. They need to get Happy back & finish their business with the irish. Plus they're not home free at all. Patterson is still after them. The club still isn't legit.

Well that stuff could all have been next season to close out the series

The way it's going I wonder how some characters will even make it through a whole other season

The episode was good but not great. It's tough to follow the previous episode.

Loved the switch ups though

Tricking the Chinese was hilarious and even though I saw it coming it still was cool

I thought Tara was being stupid. Why doesn't she just talk to Jax. Is it really that hard?

Jax has to keep an eye on Tera, Juice, & Nero. 

It's time for Juice to go. He can't be trusted for squat!

Met Charlie hunnam today

Nicest guy

I was like "yo Charlie"

He immediately looked at me confused trying to figure out my name.

Then I stuck my hand out to shake his hand and he had a huge "oh" look on his face and realized what was happening and then said

"ah ya man what's up" and I talked to him a little bit, told him It was my favorite show and that I loved pacific rim and then said I'm looking forward to the season finale and he said

"it's gonna be a big one"

Nah, I didn't want to bother him too much, he was just hiking and I didn't want to make it a big deal

I would have loved to talk to him longer but he was on his way out so I didn't want to keep him

^ I'll say it then. 

 

Tera got what she deserved! One minute she's ready to give up the whole club. The next Jax is putting it on her. WTF?!

I always said, Gemma was the most G on the show. 

 

Looks like it's Mayans & the Chinese and blacks with the sons. 

Nero got pulled back into the mix. 

 

No way Jax gets himself out of this mess....

I knew that part was coming, but didn't expect it to be that insane.

Should have just taken a quick picture lol Wouldn't have taken more than a few seconds... Who knows if you'll ever meet him again... Cool story though.

It's nice having 90 minute episodes.

True, although sometimes you can tell some of the material is obvious just filler. Personally, I kinda get a little annoyed sometimes of montages often early in the show or to end it with music playing for a long time & what not. I just think it's overdone sometimes.

Tera looks like she's about to turn into a walker or vampire. She's looking worse & worse every week. 

Yeah, and the shorter hair & everything too. She's really regressed dramatically. I would still smash though.

SMH at Tig. That he/she character is disturbing. 

Gotta' hand it to Walton Goggins though. He does a great job, lol.

How the F did Gemma get out of jail so fast? She was taken in for making Tera miscarry.

The magic of television?

He's british. I think his real voice is cooler than his American accent

Cooler or not, it's not genuine to the show so anytime you notice it that's not exactly a great thing..

Only part of the episode that bothered me, and it was a great episode was Tara getting mad at Jax for cheating on her

I understand in the moment you'd be pissed but did you not just try to file an endangerment claim against Jax, fake a pregnancy and eventual miscarriage

Did you not plan a secret divorce/ take his kids away from him

I'd think his mess up would be a little more forgivable

I agree, but you know Women sometimes, they can be so controlling even in circumstances that don't make the most sense. Can't always expect Women to be exactly rational.


yo.

Hooked on this, big time. Finished season one like in 2 nights earlier this week, season 2 on Saturday afternoon-early am, did some Christmas shopping today, got home and I'm back on it, 4th episode of season 3 just started.

Opies wife!

Jax's son!

ATF and Agent Stahl's [expletive] ass.

White supremacists and the other rat FBI informant dbag.

the mexicans.

Gema getting raped.

Prospect getting killed.

awesome, awesome show. Coming close to rivaling Breaking Bad as my all time fave tv series. If SOA keeps it up and potentially gets better it might just get there.
