So here we go again. Standing room only in my house. I think next week I will set up a TV in the basement so I can enjoy the killing in peace and quiet.

Lyla seems to have adjusted nicely to the new position as Porn Director. It’s another avenue for the club to funnel their gun money.

Juice should be grabbing any help Unser is offering with both hands. Juice is a dead man walking and he knows it. He should have left long ago. Unser is going to find the answers he is looking for if he keeps looking. I just don’t think he will like what he finds when he gets there. He is in love with Gemma, remember?

Nero is like the pimp that fell from grace. Pimps don’t fall in love. Love messes everything up for a pimp. Nero is still the only guy in hookerville left with honor. Gemma ought to go with Nero and never come back. I don’t know how Gemma can be so nonchalant. It has to be eating at her that she killed Tara. Gotta be tearing her apart.

The Chinese mobster doesn’t believe a word Jax is saying. Jax can spin a tale as easy as can be, just like his mother. It runs in the family. There was only one body because Jury took him. That’s my guess. Why else would he have broken down?
August Marks is trusting Jax less and less. Jax’s alibi is just too convenient, dead alibi, kilos gone. No one to question, it’s all too neat. Trust is out the window with these two. Jax does not take to being threatened well. Especially the state of mind he is in now.

It’s very smart to enlist Tyler and the One Niners. August will never see that coming. Destroy from within. Half a kilo of Heroin is worth a lot of money on the street. That’s a big down payment from the Sons. Not to mention taking care of their problem. It’s still worth it. Gotta be able to see the big picture, Jax sees the big picture.
The new Sheriff knows Unser’s intel is the club. The new Sheriff seems like she is in over her head, like she is going to end up dead quick, but that’s just my guess.

Rat and Brooke is a good match. Kind of cool how Rat is afraid of Gemma. Everyone is afraid of Gemma. Gemma is a killer.
Barosky ain’t no good that’s a fact. He would sell his mother up the river for the right price.
Chester’s an ex-niner, never saw him before. It is amazing the level of trust Jax receives from everyone. Aren’t these guys even a little suspicious? Everything is so convenient.

How the hell does Chucky drive?

How did the hooker’s dad make his way into hookerville and all the way to the kitchen before he started stirring the pot? Typical dysfunctional family. First she is screaming “No Stop” the “O Daddy”. These are the problems you can expect in a business like that. Call me old fashioned. Abel watching is especially sad though. Children learn what they live.
Gemma can lie to everyone with ease but the calmness of Abel’s questions rocks her to the core. I think he sees right through her lies. Kids are like that.

Straight ambush. Jax and the Sons kill with impunity. They slaughtered Chester and his members without a thought. Jax wasn’t kidding when he said he was all business.

Gemma reading ‘Monsters are my friends’ is nostalgic. I remember that book. Right after the Dick and Jane series.
So that Sheriff Jarry laid it out pretty neatly. She is into a profitable relationship, and a little bit of Chibs. That is pretty interesting, a corrupt cop first day on the job.

Where is Juice going? What is he doing? Does he even know?

Bobby is lying and Jury knows it. He just doesn’t know exactly why yet. Jury knows Jax killed those guys, he just doesn’t know why. He gave the Sons that shotgun which showed up at the dead bodies so he knows for sure they did it.
Tyler and the Sons is a good match. Long as Tyler stays his course. Most people get near the club and they get dead quick. Tyler is cool I hope he lives.

Barosky is playing both ends of the street. Sooner or later you get burned that way. That Mayan is right, Nero is in it just as deep as everyone else.

If Chibs could have reached over that counter and got away with it he would have. You know Unser put all those cops in that diner. Juice is delusional. There is nothing he can do to win his way back. He broke every cardinal sin there is he lied cheated killed a member ratted. He is done. He should take Chib’s advice.
Pretty cool, that they have a cop in their pocket for real. One with no feelings and sentiment through history like Unser. She is just straight on the take.

Gemma is slowly snapping. She is talking to Tara I think, sometimes maybe to JT, hard to tell, either way it is eating at her and I don’t think even Gemma will be able to hold that façade forever. Or maybe I just want her to get caught, hard to tell.

Unser gives it all up. Is he grasping for straws or is this crack police work?
These guys have that cop in their pocket for real. Two grand to get her off the trail. Monet well spent.
Jax should listen to Bobby. Bobby is like his anchor.

Gemma is not talking to that crow, not in her mind. Wendy has become the sanest one in the bunch. Amazing, she ahs come full circle..

The last thing Gemma needs is Juice to get caught. She knows he wont hold up under pressure. An APB would not be good.
Another half Kilo for Tyler, probably like a quarter million on the street. That’s a pretty good come up.

I am surprised August isn’t seeing what is right in front of him, an alliance with the One Niners and the Sons.

Wow, these guys just pull up and mow them down. Nero in it just as deep as any other gang member. Old habits never die.
Sheriff Jarry wasn’t expecting money she thought it would be intel. And by the way she is dressed she was expecting something else, like a little Scottish company. Wow, top Sheriff bought and paid for. That should make things interesting. They were already acting like there was no law in town anyway.

Juice should wake up and split. Just be gone when they come back. He might live to see another day.
It is scary how easy Gemma pulls the wool over Jax’s eyes.

So that was set up to frame August with Henry Lin. Just to stir things up, give everybody something else to worry about.
The level of trust is amazing. This irate father who got beat up today would invite the lady in who incited the riot? Hard to believe, but in Charming anything is possible. Like the mother and son reunion, at your doorstep, ready to bash your head in.

That was deep watching Jax wake up, feeling the serious loss of his wife. Smoking a cigarette staring at the spot he found Tara. Reliving the horror. Keeping the wound fresh. That way he can be in the correct frame of mind to complete the job at task. Revenge is a dish best served……..anyway it gets to where it needs to be. Sometimes you just can’t relax until all accounts are settled.
Juice is screwed. He knows it.

Nero and Gemma trying to raise Abel. Domestic gangster bliss. Enter Wendy and its like Family Affair. Choices for Abel’s future are falling in who’s hands? Wendy’s? Gemma’s? Jax seems a little too busy securing his revenge. Kids are everything for us they come first. Somebody better start paying attention. Wendy is right about school. Get him in it.

Hey there’s a new sheriff in town. Wonder what her story is?

Tig is absolutely one sick member. If I was Ratboy I would have punched him in the face. Ratboy is showing he is way smarter than he seemed when he was prospecting. That happens a lot. Guys will do whatever to get in the club. It’s what they do when they get inside that defines them as a member. They might sit there and not say much or they might come alive like Rat did.
Unser is gonna find the truth if he keeps looking. He’s got that cop instinct going. He can’t help it. And Juice is unraveling like a ball of string a kitten is playing with. It’s only a matter of time. Unser knew Juice wasn’t going to shoot him. Juice’s got no heart. And Unser offering to help Juice? That is like a gift from god for him. He needs all the help he can get. He should grab that life line with both hands.

Jax has no trust left. His heart is filled with hate. He is blinded by his rage and he is working on emotion which is no way to work for a man. Emotion clouds vision. Jax is a calculating killer. He should listen to August. Time clears all accounts. Just gota be patient which is virtually impossible sometimes. Sometimes nothing matters anymore except revenge, nothing, not even yourself. That’s where Jax is. He doesn’t want to live no more. August is smart, but Jackson Teller is smarter.

Happy doing what he does best, disposing of a body. Gotta love that guy.

That new Sheriff should listen good to Unser. Jax ain’t no joke. Smart as he is dangerous. I can’t figure out the Sheriff yet though.
Out of the mouths of children comes searing truth. Abel had Gemma in tears in two sentences. The guilt Gemma must be carrying is more than any person can handle. And that gets compounded daily. Abel gets to stay home from school today. Grandma needs a break.
Jax explaining his plan to exact real revenge on Lin to Jury let me know exactly how far gone he is. To break down his organization plan piece by piece, and then take over his business, kill his family in front of him, basically wipe him and his world out. Jury is seeing a new Jax. And he is along for the ride. That’s what being a member is about. If your brother calls, you come running. No questions asked. Worldwide, seven days a week, twenty four hours a day.

Tig and Rat need to have a good old fashioned punch out. Tig jamming that phone in rats face? If that was me I would have jammed that phone down Tig’s throat.

Nero is always giving out the life lessons for free. He’s got real wisdom. Problem is no one is listening. He is the only person with any morals left and as he is trying to get out, he is slowly getting pulled back closer and closer. He is so in love with Gemma, I wonder how he is going to react when he finds out she killed Tara. That will be interesting.

These guys take care of business. Too bad they are always killing the wrong people. They just drive up and mow them down. I wonder how many people have been killed on the Sons. Gotta be over a hundred.

Great chase scene. Reminds me of the A team, the way Chibs was holding on for dear life screaming for Jax to keep on with the chase. These guys aren’t bikers. They are superheroes. They are in their own minds. Superheroes with an appetite for murder.

Four kilos of Heroin in that cast Jax took off that Chinese guy. Probably has a street value of two million dollars after distribution. That’s a big score. And I am sure that is the last thing on Jax’s mind. It’s all part of a bigger picture for him.

Barosky is a trip. Dirty cop with a donut shop. The Mayan guy Oscar he is not the best politician. Nero is there just to keep the piece which is hard with Oscars attitude. But Nero has a point when he tells Barosky he is just as dirty as they are In fact he is dirtier because he is a cop. When cops go bad its all bad. They have the law on their side. Outlaws have better morals.

Gemma’s face went cold when Unser told her he had been Juice’s captive all night. She has got so much to worry about keeping all her lies straight and with who; it must make her head spin. And Unser knows Gemma for a long time so he can tell something is wrong. Can’t fool a friend who really knows you. Gemma helping Juice is not only going against Jax she is going against the club. Not that it matters at this point. I am just amazed she thinks she can get away with it. I am sure she is thinking there is only one person who knows the truth. She could kill Juice and no one would know anything. She could get away with murder. What’s another body? Especially when it’s going to save your own neck?

Lin ain’t no joke. He means it when he tells Jax and Nero he will turn Charming into a killing field. Of all of them, Lin is the most organized. Don’t want to mess with the triads. There are millions of them. Millions I tell ya.
So now Gemma thinks Unser is a cop and going behind her back. That ain’t good for Unser. Gemma kills like the plague, especially when she feels like she has been double crossed. Weird how Gemma keeps confessing to juice. How she told him she ID’d the Chinese guy for Jax to kill. Juice is on a need to know basis and he don’t need to know anymore.

It sucks that Jax and the guys killed those two kids who had just helped them. They are just home smoking a bong, relaxing on a Friday night after a good car chase and a couple of murders. No reason to get killed in your own home. Unless you are being used a set up. FRAMED. Those kids did not deserve to die like that.

So Jury knew the kid who got killed. Why else would he be crying like that? He must have been somebody. That won’t go over good with Indian Hills. Probably gonna get worse before it gets better.

This house has been packed since right after work. Everyone started setting up their chairs and coolers like it’s a tailgate party.

“Never My Love.” What a great way to start, straight out of my era. And a terrific version also. The music is always top shelf on this show. Pretty ironic to hear such a beautiful song while watching Jax beat another inmate to death. Looks like he has the Niners for lookouts.

The house looks normal, everybody’s busy. Abel doesn’t look too happy though. I am sure he has realized by now his mommy is not coming back. Montez is armed and hanging out; gotta be protection. Rat must be Gemma’s personal body guard.
Well that’s not something you see every day. It doesn’t matter what race a club is, or where they are from, they would not ride together. Clubs just ride different. Members get comfortable riding with the same guys year after year. I mean, no one could ride with us. We ride like no one else. Like a swarm of bees at top speed weaving in and out of the traffic like a five alarm fire truck. I’m not saying we don’t ride with other clubs. Sometimes we do, but when we do, we stay in our own packs. And we ALWAYS ride in front.

Juice better be doing push ups. He needs to stay in shape because he might have to run at any minute. He definitely looks freaked out, as he should. He crossed the one group of people he swore an oath of loyalty to. Not much life left after such a betrayal, whether he gets away with it from the club or not.
Looks like Wendy is packing up. She must be planning on checking out. We all knew she wouldn’t stay in there long when she checked in.

So Mayans and Nero are setting up shop. This will be tough for Nero. He has a compromised allegiance. He is in love with Gemma, which will overpower other feelings when it gets down to brass tacks. He should stick with his original plan on getting the hell out of Charming while he is still alive.

So Lyla is setting up another porn palace. At least it will give the guys somewhere to go when they are not killing people.
Jax pulled those teeth out with ease. Guy probably didn’t have a dental plan inside the pen.

Unser picking up Wendy from rehab is fitting. He is always trying to save someone. Wendy thinks she will just be able to walk right back into Abel’s life. I don’t think Jax will let that happen.

Gemma sitting with Patterson has got to be nerve racking for her. Patterson and Gemma both are fishing for answers, with none coming. Patterson has the edge because she can see Jax first.

Jax has to make a deal with the Aryan Brotherhood for protection inside. I don’t know if that is about protection or business. I guess the teeth show some sort of loyalty to Tully. Seems like the Swastika would have been enough, that and the witnesses.

Wendy should take Unser’s advice and clear it with Jax before she walks back into the boy’s life. It would be disrespectful any other way.

Patterson could talk till she is blue in the face and give up any personal information she wants, Jax won’t talk. Jax knows the code, he is focused on the task at hand, and nothing will deter him from his course.

So Juice is hiding at Wendy’s because Gemma put him there? That should seem odd to Wendy. Wendy won’t let Juice stay no matter what. She knows better. She’s been down this road more than once.

Gemma is the world heavyweight champion of liars. The fact that she can sit with Jax and talk about Tara’s funeral like it is nothing just goes to show she is beyond pathological. It’s her own reality that everyone else is living in, and she is orchestrating it.

Chibs knows how to run an interrogation. Get right to the meat of the problem. Soon as he heard that Jax was out he hurried it along the best way he knew how. He dragged the information out of the guy. They are pretty lucky though, soon as those guns were drawn there was at least a 50/50 chance everyone would end up dead.

As soon as Gemma saw Wendy getting out of the car she freaked. Gemma has to cover all bases all the time now. This will become her full time job. That and keeping her sanity which I believe will eat away at her. Gemma skillfully led Jax right to Wendy helping out and at the same time Wendy looked a little surprise. However, she knew enough to take that lead. Now Wendy has an in to the boys. Let’s see how long she can keep it.

Nero still seems like the smartest guy in the room. Maybe he could be a politician. He can definitely bridge the gap between the clubs and the gangs. Trust is not an abundant commodity in Charming.
Jax must be asking those new members if they will kill for the man next them because he knows Chibs, Bobby, Tig and Happy are straight up killers. Jax is going to exact his revenge until it is complete, that is obvious. I don’t think he would let anyone; even his brothers get in the way of his revenge.

Gemma is in complete denial about what happened. That’s how she can tell Juice she is the glue holding this family together. The rational that she uses to explain to Juice how she can talk to Jax only proves how insane she really is. Bonkers.

Doesn’t seem like Jax trusts Nero so much any more. Or maybe he just has his guard up more than usual. Either way you can tell Jax doesn’t trust Nero. That’s why he told him to stay at Collete’s while he handles Diosa. He has to separate himself from all feelings so he can finish the task at hand.

Unser should take the job Patterson offered him. He isn’t doing much except waiting to die anyway. This way he could remain vital and if he still wants to play both sides he would have his hand in it already.
Jax is inviting the Niners and Lin’s crew to the party because he has an ulterior motive. That’s why he wants Gemma there. Jax is gonna clean house. You can bet Lin is a little nervous about going anywhere Jax invites him. He has also lost a few family members.

If that Impala had just run down some members I don’t think they would have left it out like nothing happened. As always, Happy is eager to get to the bottom of the case. That’s why he ran across the parking lot. Happy loves action.
And action they got. Shooting up the Christian love triangle is not what I think they had in mind. Neither did those preachers when they were ripping each other’s clothes in a religions frenzy of sex lies and guilt. Imagine the fun they were having before our guys barged in and decided to end it. And what was that girl doing with a loaded gun in bed. She must have been a gangster.

So Gemma found her mark at the party. She had to make sure that Chinese guy didn’t have any children or a wife. The web Gemma is spinning is compounding like the Richter scale. Every move she makes, more people die.
Gemma is leading Jax like a puppet on a string. Jax will task T.O. to grab the Chinese guy and there are even more accomplices. After the fact, accomplices covering up her murder of her daughter- in-law, deep.
Curiosity killed the cat, or in this case the cop. Unser should have let it go when he saw how clean Wendy’s place was and he knew she didn’t do it. But his cop mind would not let it go. Now Juice has the drop on him. Juice is so freaked, what’s another murder. Not much if it is going to save your skin.

That last scene left the house silent. It was chilling. Happy is totally into it, front row seating. Chibs was going to smoke that cigarette but it had just a little too much blood on it for him. So now that Jax has killed who he thinks killed Tara, will he rest? I kind of doubt it. But you never know how the wind can blow.

It’s a day away and it’s all I hear or see anywhere. The Sons are on buses, billboards and all over town. And did you see the promo? It looks like another sick and twisted ride.
There are definite opinions in this house on how this could end, being the final season. I for one can not understand how they can end the best show on earth, but as they say, all good things must come to and end…or to pass….or something like that. Either way, I am looking at it that this will be the end; mostly because I have a habit of believing what people tell me to a certain extent. Something like this….sure, I believe them, it’s the final season.

It’s easy to figure out how I feel after seven years when I look at it as it is the final season from the beginning. If this was going to keep going I think I would feel different. Since I know this will come to an end this season, I find myself figuring out the story of each of the players involved. After seven years, we all have an opinion one way or another.
Ain’t no more Team Jax, Team Tara, Team Gemma. After last season, it’s more like team every man for himself. We have spun this every way we can around here and all we can come up with is Gemma and Juice have to die. There is no two ways about it. No one deserves to die more than those two. I don’t know how they will pull it off and not have anyone figure out what they did. I don’t believe in that. I think that sooner or later, one way or another, everyone gets what they have coming to them….everyone. No matter what.

I am sure Wendy will try to make her way back into the family now that Tara is dead. It will be interesting to see how long she can stay clean and out of rehab. She already learned that she has to be careful around Jax.

I think when Jax learns what happened, and I believe he will; it will send him on a tail spin he might not come out of. How do you process your mother killing the love of your life? It is impossible to comprehend. It’s like your anchor came loose in shark infested waters. What do you do? Drift….at least for awhile.

Nero probably has a good view of how long life lasts around the Sons. Not too long. He seems like he has the most sense and the most heart of anyone else there. I would hate to see him bite the bullet before he figures out to get the hell away.
I have wanted to see Juice die a slow and painful death ever since he shot Miles. Miles was a good guy. He didn’t deserve to die that way. Juice killed innocent people and an innocent member. He acted like a coward more than once. He became a snitch to save his own ass. Juice needs to die, like a lot.

It’s hard to scream for Gemma’s head only because we are team Jax. Jax is way cool. He has tried his best to do what he thinks is best. Even if some of his decisions were not the best ones, he always had the club’s best interest at heart. That is important. A man might not be the best fighter or the smartest guy in the room but it takes all kinds to make a charter. One thing for sure is his heart has to be in the right place. Jax’s heart is in the right place.
If we are talking about revenge being exacted on a karmic level, then Bobby would get it for banging Otto’s wife. Tig for a few things; especially for kissing Gemma when she was with Clay as well as lying to Jax’s face about killing the pornographer and throwing him in the bay. Even Chibs lied by letting Jax know that Juice tried to hang himself. That’s called lying by omission. Other than that, Chibs is squeaky clean and one great club member. In reality only Happy, Ratboy and Quinn and the new guys are completely innocent of any crime against the club.

One thing for sure, if past seasons are a gauge, it’s going to be one bloody season. It’s great to have them back. It’s going to be over before we know it. Bring on the carnage.

The Final Ride. In my world those words mean a lot. To a lot of guys who have lived their lives based on and about motorcycle riding, the words ‘Final Ride’ mean a great deal.

The Sons are about a month out and it’s a real topic of conversation around this house. It’s amazing how people look at the show after these past seven years, members and civilians alike. Jax, Gemma, Chibs, Bobby, Juice, Tig, Happy, Tara, Wendy, Unser. These people have come into our homes for seven years and we have gotten into their lives, in a big way.

I have brothers that have trouble separating the fact that it’s just a TV show. I know there are hundreds of thousands of civilians world wide, in 23 countries in fact, that have trouble separating the fact that it’s just a TV show. Maybe that’s cause it’s the best TV show that has ever been on the air. Ever.

It’s seven years, later, 28 seasons of the year have passed, that’s a piece of time. A lot of water, under many bridges. I’ve seen some Brothers come and go, been to a few funerals and parties, got a new dog, finished some projects started others, basically went through the motions of time.

As you get older each of these motions becomes more and more important, each and every little thing, with who, when and why. I think it’s pretty cool that this TV show has brought so many people together, from all walks of life. In my house also, we all look forward to getting together and seeing what’s next with this group of murdering psychos we have come to know and love.
I am surrounded by a lot of serious men. I think you can consider any man wearing a patch a pretty serious man. Not the guys with the store bought patch, or the one you get for buying a bike. The patch it takes to earn. The patch that is not for sale at any price. The patch that takes a lot of hard miles and a lot of head breaking and hard partying to earn. It took me five years on two continents across an ocean to earn mine, but I can be a knucklehead sometimes. Imagine what it means to own a patch, to be a Patch Holder in an Outlaw Motorcycle Club. Unless you’ve been there, you can’t.

The point is these serious men take the show real serious. They know it’s a TV show but it’s about our culture which is a culture all on its own. They don’t like seeing civilians wearing patches they have sewn on that their vests, that they ordered from a catalog and then they think they are a patch holder. They are not patch holders.

The guys I know are motorcycle enthusiasts. They are carpenters and drywall guys, longshoremen, union guys. Just regular guys that think alike, and that love motorcycle riding. They are not super heroes like the Sons of Anarchy. That being said, to us the Sons of Anarchy ARE like super heroes. For us it’s like Saturday morning cartoons only better. We look forward to it more than football season. And everyone has their team to cheer on.

Me, I’m Team Jax. I need to see him discover what Gemma did and handle it. She needs to be held accountable, and held accountable by Jax. Juice also, there is no forgiving him, not on any level. He broke every rule in the book and showed his true colors. There is no coming back from what he did.

Nero has become a lot of the member’s favorite. He has honor, he knows better, he just keeps making the wrong choices. I figure he does that because he has honor in his heart. He made a deal with Jax. Good or bad, that’s his word. And he is actually truly in love with Gemma. Love is the most powerful drug, the most powerful weapon there is, and Gemma uses it well. She uses it in any direction she chooses, and twists it to suit her needs. There is no justification for killing Tara. No matter what Tara did, or what she believed Tara did, that was Jax’s business, and no one else’s.

Bobby, Chibs, Tig and Happy are along for the ride. Like good members would be. You sign on for life. You sign on to go down with the ship. You sign on to fight, and never run, no matter what the odds against you are. You sign up to die for what you believe in if necessary. The truth is, what wouldn’t a good man do for his family? Everything, anything, and whatever it takes. That’s Man Business.

A lot has happened the past seven years. I saw some great Brothers take The Final Ride and pass into the next life. Some crossed over to the other side in the blink of an eye, and some had a long painful checkout. These were serious men. Men with over forty years as members living the life we love, loving the life we life. Being free as any man can ever dream about being. Not having a problem getting on our motorcycles and riding across the country to see a brother, or for a party, or a funeral. Building our thing. A thing that people fell in love with and copied world wide, and they did it with out even trying. The biggest scope of our imagination was backstage passes at the concert, not charters worldwide, different clubs everywhere.

That’s what it’s about, the Brothers. Living by a code, by rules, to have honor, credibility. That when people talk to one of us they know they get the straight dope. That our word is everything.

It’s a mix of excitement and sadness for my Old Lady, I think it’s that way for a lot of people. Excited the show is coming back. Excited to see what’s what, who gets who, but sad that it’s the Final Ride. All good things usually come to an end sooner or later. And everyone always gets exactly what’s coming to them, sooner or later. You can count on that. At least in the real world. The countdown has begun.

I hope you and yours are all well with everything going your way. Life only gets better and better with time, just enjoy the ride.

Here we go. My house has been packed since 5. Everyone came here straight after work. Go figure.

I always thought Jax was writing those journals for his sons. Who else would he be writing them for? We don’t live the kind of life that you keep notes for. Keeping notes might get you buried or imprisoned.

Wonder where Chibs and Tig are taking Bobby? Bobby looks like he has barely healed from his gunshot wound. Must be important enough to move him. Like maybe a serious vote?
Wendy is packing up to probably go to another rehab. Looking at a pic of young Abel, the kid she left. That kid is grown up now and she has enough problems on her plate. She should think about her own problems.

Clay getting buried with no one in attendance but Unser seems appropriate. That’s what happens when you live a lie and burn, cheat and kill your loved ones and brothers. No one comes to your funeral.

Gemma is crying because this is all very overwhelming. She knows what could happen if Tara rats. She is also living some deeply buried lies. Sooner or later, they will reach the surface.

The memory of Opie is very strong. His influence lives on. That’s what it’s like when real loved ones pass away too early. Their memory only gets stronger.
Nero is back on the street with Fiasco and the gang collecting the protection money.

Tara looks worried in that hotel with the boys. She ought to be, everyone is looking for her. Not almost everyone, EVERYONE.
Everything Jax does is for his Sons, everything, for his SONS.

That’s hard news to hear that Jax is sharing with the club, that your wife who knows more dirt than most members is a potential rat. Hard decisions to make for these guys. Bobby, who is always the voice of reason, is smart enough to say let’s cross these bridges when we get to them.

The next day and no Tara. I think it is safe for Patterson to think she is not showing up. Time to send out a search party. See what other deals she can make before it’s too late.
Juice is far from ok. He is an accident waiting to happen, he is a liability. He has now tried to kill himself twice. Once is enough to get your walking papers. He doesn’t know when to keep his mouth shut and that can get other people killed, or sent to prison. Gemma knows there is no place in this life for Juice’s behavior. He better figure it out quick.
Eli liked that remark from Gemma to Patterson, he can appreciate some good sarcasm. Eli is getting more likeable. Patterson is above his pay grade, she dismisses him pretty quickly to speak to Jax alone.

So Tara and Patterson had a “meeting” Jax knows what that means. Patterson is getting through to Jax with the betrayal speech. Jax is constantly trying to figure out who he is and what he is, and keep them defined and separate. Jax needs to do exactly what Patterson says, own his place in this world. He needs to find it.

The guys know they need to find Tara first. They have to convince her this is her only family. They gotta go down the trail, starting with the hospital administrator, gotta follow her, do the leg work and track her down, before she makes a bad mistake for everyone.

Alvarez has to grab whatever he can. He doesn’t want August Marks and the Niners to control the guns. Reaching out to Jax is a last ditch effort. Jax is doing good business, not looking at race or member or non-member, just at money. But not everyone can do that. Why wouldn’t Jax hand the business off to the Niners first? The Mayan’s used to be real enemies of the Sons. The One Niners always had a good relationship with the club.
Alvarez wants Nero at the meeting with the Chinese. The Mayans are setting up in Stockton. Both of those things are a conflict of interest to Jax and the club. That ain’t cool. That’s Son’s turf. Yes, there are problems in Taco nation.

Tara is calling the lawyer and setting up the deal? Is she really going through with it? She would have done better just to run and see how far she could get. Abel asking her, “Is that Daddy?” Kids can see right through the lies like x-ray vision. Abel knows what’s up.
Bobby and Juice are on the Tara detail. Why is Bobby not in bed healing?

Big meeting in the junkyard with the Mayans and the Niners. August Marks would never be caught at one of these meetings. He can never be involved with what happens on the street. He is well insulated.

Nero let Jax know that he knows he had Juice kill Darvany, and that he lied to him about it. Nero believes in karma, Jax lying to Nero’s face and killing Darvany didn’t sit well with him. Nothing gets buried, that shit will come back and slap them good. Just like it’s slapping Juice now.

The Sons used to be good guys, kind of a Robin Hood image. That’s over, when Jax told Juice to kill Darvany and Juice did it with no problem I looked at my old lady and said, “They crossed over to the dark side.”

Jax is making it easier for Nero to find different alliances. One lie is enough in this world. Even the smallest possible lie and you will be gone by the next meeting. I am certain it’s that way with the street gang’s also. When Nero said don’t lie to me twice, Jax knew.

Alvarez is a patch holder, so he is not going to let Tyler from the Niners talk to him that way. A patch holder looks at civilians differently, they looks at them like civilians. They did not go through what they went through to be who he is. Patch holders are Human Beings that play rougher, and are more serious than other human beings, about everything.

Nero did not like hearing that Jax gunned down the Chinese. He sees himself getting closer and closer to catastrophe by being near the Sons. Everyone is dying all around him and he is being lied to his face. Watching Jax transform into a cold blooded mass murderer. Gotta be making a sane man think.

Wow, didn’t see that coming. Alvarez gunning down those Niners wasn’t about the money, or taking those guns, it was about power and who holds it. Alvarez is never going to let the Niners, or anyone else dictate to him, Alvarez is a shot caller. If Oakland wasn’t busted up before, this will break it wide open.

Barosky seems like he is just trying to fade away gracefully. He sees everyone getting killed near the Sons. Better just keep Collette and his donut shop.
Alvarez is making that power play with Nero, trying to convince him to fade away and go for that ranch he always wanted. That ranch sells itself. Alvarez ain’t lying when he says it’s gonna get bloody for awhile. A happy ending doesn’t happen every all the time for guys like us, better grab it while you can.

Just the fact that Nero is meeting with Alvarez shows that race overpowers all other barriers, patch or gang colors, doesn’t matter in the end. Nero has history with Alvarez, and they don’t lie to each other.

Tara talking to the attorney in the park while Abel plays on the jungle gym and she has no idea Juice and Bobby are watching. If she goes through with this, making the deal and giving the bullet then the club is over under RICO. Bobby is done as well as anyone else in that jailbreak. Tara can bury everyone and go into witness protection. It didn’t look like Tara signed the papers before the attorney. She is pushing this to the last second. Big decision, hang your loved one out to dry, burn your entire family and go out into the unknown alone carrying that guilt. Should be no decision.

Everyone is looking for Tara, but it won’t be long now, not since Bobby and Juice spotted her. They won’t let her out of their sight. Gemma has no problem seeing Tara killed. Unser doesn’t even want to entertain these thoughts. He is great at just hearing what he wants to and moving forward.

Gemma is helping Wendy because she has a plan for her. Seems like she is trying to set up a replacement for Jax. Can’t ever trust a junkie. Can’t imagine Jax going back to Wendy. He can’t stand the sight of her. Gemma is driving that train alone.
Tara almost died of a heart attack when Jax and the guys walked up on her. She knew the jig is up. Bobby and Happy took Abel to the jungle gym and Juice takes Thomas and Tara is as alone as she set herself up to be. She has straight fear in her eyes when she asks Jax if she can say goodbye before he kills her. “There is no other way.” She says “I’ll die if I have to.” She says, Tara made up her mind long ago, that this can easily end with her corpse, she was ok with that.
One thing that over powers EVERYTHING…….LOVE.

Jax is in LOVE.

Nero is having a problem coming to grips with the liars and murderers all around him. He knows he has to separate himself from all of this if he wants to live. Nero gives Gemma a way out, she can go with him, get out of there. Just one problem, Gemma has been working toward a different goal, trying to keep this club and family together. Gemma ain’t going anywhere, but Nero’s gotta get out. It’s the smart move, to get far away.

Jax is doing exactly what Patterson suggested, owning his place in the world. Jax is doing the man move, taking the fall. Not letting his wife or his club or his partner Nero take the heat for this. He knew what he signed up for, Jax is doing the right thing, taking real responsibility for his actions himself. This is the way Jax will insure the safety of his sons.

Good meeting. Jax going inside is hard on Chibs, but he gets it. Bobby as President is a good choice. I like how Bobby asked Chibs his opinion before he took the tag, shows a lot of respect. No reason to worry Jax about the Niners getting shot down. He will find out soon enough and he has more than enough on his plate. Besides, Bobby is the President now, it’s his problem.

Anything Tara wants she gets. She now, once again has a bunch of brothers and uncles for her kids.

I’m glad Jax broke it down for them that Juice can’t be trusted. That is way past due, not only can he not be trusted, he is a liar a snitch and a liability. Juice’s gotta go.
Like Sonny told Clemenza,”Make that first on your list.”

Unser gave false information to Gemma because he thought he had it straight. Gemma is almost gone, watching everything she has worked so hard for slip away. She is not going to let that happen. It was obvious to everyone except Unser she was going to steal his truck and slip out.

Juice got the kiss of death. Jax let Juice know that Nero let him know he gave up the intel on Darvany. Juice knows his time is really limited, the clock is ticking, and the alarm is ringing.

Unser’s truck is there but he isn’t. Tara is on cloud nine, she made it happen. Kids are safe, Jax’s still in love, everything is good, well almost everything. Gemma ain’t having it. She thinks Tara is a rat and going to sink the whole ship.

Wow. Speechless. That was the bloodiest murder I have ever seen. Gemma drowned Tara in the sink then stabbing her in the head over and over made the old ladies leave the room. The house is dead quiet. Didn’t see that coming at all.

Eli really screwed Gemma up when he told her Tara and Jax had made a deal they liked, it was all good. That news made Gemma slip over the deep end. She really screwed up. She killed the person her son was trying to save.

SHIT! Juice shot Eli. Juice is a real mess. This is Gemma’s only chance to get away with this. Juicer is another person, he aint Juice anymore. I thought he was going to turn the gun on himself but no such luck. Better just get Gemma out.
Jax saying goodbye to his brothers and everyone is crying. With the possibility of doing twenty five years I think anyone would be crying saying goodbye to his brothers. You never know what can happen inside. Yeah, you might get out in ten. Then again you might never get out.

So Gemma made it back to TM. I guess Juice got her out of there.

Nero in business with Alvarez is not only a conflict of interest but it creates a conflict in Nero’s heart. That’s not who he is trying to be.
Juice could have disposed of the evidence and murder weapon a little better. Who is that homeless woman? She looks like the same homeless woman we have been seeing since the beginning.

Jax is broken. After all that work, all that maneuvering, to see Tara dead on the floor, bloody and lifeless, that broke him.
Patterson walking in to see the carnage, Tara and Eli dead, Jax crying, guns all over, she doesn’t know where to begin, or who did what.
Where do they go from here?

Thank You for listening to me rant this season. I love all your comments and that we all love the best show that there has ever been.

Patterson is still reaching. She doesn’t want to admit Jax held up his end of the bargain, but he did, and saved a lot of lives doing it. Patterson knows she got played, but she got played into a winning hand.

Tara is still trying to figure a way out. Tara knows she is betraying the only family she has in the world, the only family she ever really had. Now she has to deliver that bullet from Bobby’s body, which will deliver the Sons, her only family, into the hands of the law.

Unser and Gemma raising those kids ain’t gonna work. Sooner than later those kids will start asking questions, like where their parents are.

Connor knows he has no choice but to deal. He watched Galan and Clay get killed and carried off, he knows it could just as easily happen to him. Of course the Chinese will want revenge. Revenge is a dish best served cold and never forgotten until it is exacted.

Tig was pissed about not getting to kill those Irish thugs. Then he was upset about his hair. What hair? Looks like a mop after it cleaned a gym floor, or a two story rat’s nest.

Bo hai was also pissed he didn’t get to kill those thugs. He wanted to pull the trigger himself. Business is business, when you get feelings involved, that’s when things get messed up. So he didn’t get to kill those thugs, he should just keep moving forward and find revenge some other way. Better yet concentrate on making money.

Bo hai thinks the Sons would let them kill Happy? No way, it’s never gonna happen. They have lost enough brothers. Ain’t gonna lose another. Especially Happy.

Fiasco knows what’s up. Nero is another causality of love. He is way involved with Gemma and the Sons which is a dead end street. Without Nero that street gang is over. He has to sit down with Alvarez, which shows good faith. There ain’t nothing wrong with a sit down. It shows respect. One thing for sure, ever since Nero hooked up with the Sons it has been all bad.

The only reason Gemma is helping Wendy is to have another pawn to move across the board. Of course it is a power play, that’s all Gemma knows, how to move pieces across the board in a power play, trouble is she doesn’t have so many pieces left to move. Gemma has a plan to raise those kids, she has to get Tara out of the picture. She is now just realizing being a soccer mom is a full time job. And she ain’t as young as she used to be.

Tara is used to the shadow, it just makes things clearer, how she has to get out, to get as far away as she can from the club, at least in her mind.
Bobby says Clay deserves the mayhem, that’s why he changed his vote. Clay always deserved it, he killed JT.

The thing that keeps ringing in my mind is that Gemma was there then, she was in on it. How long will it take until Jax puts that together?

And NO ONE in the club is holding anyone else’s dick. Hold it yourself Bobby.
Juice should take those pills. Should have taken them long ago. Members can either be assets or liabilities. Juice is a liability. He’s gotta go.

I’m glad Alvarez is back. He has honor. Nero should see that. The way Alvarez broke it down, Nero should see the top slot is open for grabs. And those races would never band together. It doesn’t work that way on the street, or in the pen. Everyone sticks with their own.

Tara is still scheming till the end. Patterson has no choice but to accept Tara’s terms. She has to wait till Tara is good and ready to give herself up. She has the bullet from Bobby’s body, but she is stalling because she has no intention of giving herself up. Tara isn’t leaving them any choice, it’s her way or no way. Yes it’s a big decision, Patterson has everyone in line, or so she thinks. Patterson is using the MC to reach the ends to her means.

Connor is uravelling. He is watching it all unfold in front of his eyes. He just watched everyone he was working with get killed, he must figure he is next. Being number one only means you are next one in line to be killed. Not everyone wants to be the number one.

I am surprised Gemma didn’t immediately put two and two together as soon as she saw Patterson in the hospital. She knew something was up. Can’t pull the wool over Gemma’s eye’s. Patterson knew enough to spin a story real quick.

Jax at the cabin with Tara and a shot up Bobby, how could Jax trust Tara? He knows she is torn, he also knows Tara knows way too much to just be let loose. But Jax would never dream he is being set up and double crossed by the love of his life. Tara is conflicted, she knows exactly how terrible this is going to be on Jax and the club, she is having a moment of guilt, but it is way too late for het to turn around now.

Juice is screwed up bad. He figures the only way out, is to check out. That’s why he took those pills. First he tried to hang himself, now OD. When are they gonna see he just ain’t no good?
Bobby telling Tara he loves her, thanking her for helping him stung Tara real bad. Stung like bees. Just another reminder of the backstabbing piece of work she has become. Love stings, love hurts.
They pulled up to the warehouse and one look at Chibs and we knew something was going to go down.
Connor was freaking when Jax put that gun to his head, “Don’t worry, it ends well.” Connor can only worry. These guys leave a trail of bodies where ever they go. What’s Connor to think, except that he is next?

Juice at Diosa, girls all over and he doesn’t have a clue of what to do. He is screwed up in his mind. He should have left the club or been kicked out long ago. He stabbed Jax, the club and himself in the back countless times. Juice gotta go.

Juice isn’t trying to get high, he is trying to check out. Taking six 80 milligram oxys is beyond getting high. Those things are for like when your leg gets cut off, real strong.

The house went crazy when Happy walked out of that van, he is the house favorite, Happy is the last member that has not dirted the club in any way. We love Happy. Everyone loves Happy. When the Sons mowed down the Chinese, Happy damn sure knew how much the club loves him. He killed Bo Hai with dignity, with impunity, like a real man.

The Niners and the Sons have good history and a good business relationship. The Niner captain knows Jax can’t get out, who’s he kidding?

Connor knows he has no choice in the matter anymore, gotta just go with the flow.

Should be a no brainer, August Marks will double his take, double his money. Time to get your head out of racism and do some good business, the only color real businessmen see is green.
Wow, Tig got pardoned, Guess he gets to live after all. Killed all those folks, told all those lies to the club, and now he gets off. Marks is a straight up businessman, Connor could learn from him. A half million down payment? That would make anyone sit up and take notice.

Chucky is straight certifiable. Chinchillas? The barter system? Jackets? We barely accept that.
Juice is spilling the beans again. Nero can’t even touch him after that information. Nero protects people like Darvany, Nero rocks, love Nero. He doesn’t kill people like that.

Juice is ten kinds of screwed up. He has no spine, he doesn’t have the where with all to be a club member. He could be a bus boy though, maybe.

Gemma making Juice throw up by sticking her fingers down her throat and the hookers getting squeamish about it? Be real, they have seen worse, done worse.

Tara is playing everyone till the end. Making Gemma come help her, just to get her out of the way so she could pick up the boys, that’s smart. Hard to play Gemma, gotta be smart.
Connor is ready to get off this road already, he has seen enough in his short three days at the top.
Tara taking those kids at gun point is her going the distance she feels she has to go to. Wendy screaming out she is Abel’s real mother and Tara slamming her with the gun was just what the rehab doctor ordered.

Paterson knows Tara isn’t showing up, it’s way past six. She has nothing to do except wait.
Jax Coming home to no Tara and no Sons is the final realization of something he didn’t want to believe all along. Then Gemma lays the truth on him, Tara made a deal, the ramifications of that realization rushed over Jax like a wave. Tara knows more dirt than even club members, she was as inside the circle as anyone could ever get. Fugitive hotel life, Tara better get used to it.

Nero walked into to confront Jax on the truth Juice laid on him about killing Darvany, but Nero has a soft spot in his heart for Jax, one look at him and the only thing he could do is comfort him the way a Father comforts a Son.

The way a father comforts a son.

All quiet on the Western Front. Everyone has their seats, popcorn and cold beverages of their choosing. I said it before and I will say it again, I wish I could get this much attention at the weekly meeting.
Tara looked real surprised waking up with both kids still there, and no Jax anywhere. He’s laying down the law though. Got Rat on watch and no more St. Thomas for the boys. That’s smart, nowhere they can’t be reached.

Chibs doesn’t look too comfortable while Jax is dealing with Patterson. Some things outlaws don’t do and that’s deal with cops, not for anything. That’s kind of like against the outlaw code. I’m sure it’s in the handbook. That’s a joke, ain’t no handbook. You just learn this shit coming through it. And to tell you the truth, if we gotta teach you that we don’t deal with the cops, like you didn’t figure that out before you got here, then this probably ain’t for you.

Jax wants to know how many cops, state local or feds, because he has a plan. Jax always has a plan, in fact at least one.

Nero knows there ain’t no helping Wendy, she is just a no account junkie, There is only so much getting high can teach you and I am pretty sure you get that in the first lesson. I somehow doubt Gemma really wants to help Wendy, she probably just wants to get her well enough to use her again. Just a guess.
Nero is always doling out the lessons for free, I just don’t know who is paying attention. Trying to make the peace, reaching out to Gemma for Tara, he knows if they don’t make things right while they are alive they will regret it later. Except one problem, Gemma don’t forgive, as far as Gemma is concerned forgiving is Jesus’s job. Once you cross the line with Gemma, ain’t no coming back. Tara is dead to Gemma.
Looking good on the road, tight formation, falling in line, for the first time in weeks. The house was louder than the usual edge of your seat tension that’s silent enough to hear a mouse fart atmosphere we usually have.

Unser is Team Tara or maybe Team Boys. He is always there in a pinch, whenever Tara needs him. If Tara had followed her heart she might not be in the mess she is in. She was in love with Jax once and probably still is. She knew what she was getting into. Remember how in love they were when they got married. Gotta finish what you start, you make a commitment, then you stick by it. Kids are the tie that binds. Once you bring a kid in the world you just transfer all your hopes and dreams to them, you now take second place. In a weird sort of way I guess that’s what Tara is doing. She just could have gone about it in a different way.
Tara’s new attorney is all business. He has no sentiment so he just gives it to her straight. Time to make a choice, turn on the club and either secure her freedom or her own. It should be an easy choice considering all she has done to secure her son’s fate. Life is full of choices, some big some little. And there aint no guarantees in life. She could make the deal and still go to the pen. You just never know how the dice will roll.

So Jailbreak. I would say these guys have moved away from the MC life style and are now in the major leagues. In reality once you put on a patch you should really just be about motorcycling. You should be a Motorcycle Enthusiast. Because everyone is now looking at you and if you think you wanna be a gangster maybe you should have joined some thing else. Jailbreaks are what big crews like the IRA do, not a bunch of bikers.
Connor has it all worked out, so he did it two times before, that’s reassuring. Clean fast and easy huh? Wouldn’t it be great if everything worked that way.

Jax has a look on his face like the samurai, resolute acceptance of death. He knows very well he might not make it, they all do. It’s a little too intense of a moment for big goodbyes a nod is enough. Jax doesn’t even like Clay, now he has to break him out of the slam. Life can really suck at times but you gotta play the cards you’re dealt, especially when you are the dealer. Only consolation is the house always wins, well usually.

Clay looks confident he is finally getting out, kind of a smirk on his face.

Lotta cops, FBI, DEA, ATF Local, and State. A bunch of well armed Irish Soldiers and bikers on a mission is a tough mix to be in the middle of. Patterson doesn’t care at all how many people die as long as she gets her man. Eli knows the only way this will end is bloody.

Chucky is getting better with those fingers. Unser is right about the kids. They are the only concern and their welfare is all that matters. Gemma has another plan, she is going to raise those kids herself. She just has to get by a few obstacles namely Tara.

I knew Unser was in love with Gemma, he has hinted enough about it. Gemma knows it also, that’s why he is still hanging around. He could be fishing somewhere in the mountains instead of dodging bullets in Charming. Love is a powerful drug, the most powerful drug of all.

Juice is done and he knows it. That’s why he keeps drifting off into space. He has done too many cold blooded murders and he looks like he is going to crack from the pressure. There are some lines you can’t cross, and Juice crossed them all. He cannot be a good guy, he’s a garbage man and he has to pay.
And away we go this is intense. Tig is not tripping one bit, classic sociopath. He’s more worried about being in a pink truck than the fact he might get killed or jailed for life. Bobby is taking it all in stride also, these are veterans, gotta just get the job done.

Clay’s look on his face when he saw it was Jax breaking him out was priceless. Jax was for sure the last person Clay thought would be breaking him out. Bobby got shot that ain’t no good. Juice ran over the Sheriff that shot him, that ain’t no good either. Jax was trying to get out clean, that didn’t work.

Patterson thinks Jax played her and he did, but he saved all their lives and Eli knows it.

Tara must be tripping watching Gemma and Nero taking care of her boys. A glimpse of a possible future? And now she has to go patch Bobby up. Yes if Gemma can pretend nothing happened to save Bobby’s life Tara can also.

Patterson has to wait before she throws the net down on the MC. She has to see how this plays out completely. She has t wait to see if somehow Jax delivers on his end of the deal.
It’s hard to believe Jax will let Clay go. He finally has him where he wants him. Clay killed JT, that won’t get settled till it gets settled.

Clay walking over to Juice in that Hangar and giving him a hug didn’t help Juice. The guys don’t like Clay, and half don’t like Juice either.

YES! Jax shot Galaan. That was along time coming. You can only push a man around so much before he will find a way to not get pushed around anymore. Clay now knows it’s over.

Nero is continuously cool. He knows Gemma has to say goodbye, they got history, a lotta water under the bridge. Clay knows it’s finally over.

Jax telling Nero he knows it all is insulting him. Nero knows the web of lies this family hold goes way deep.
“What happens now?” As if Clay doesn’t know. It was a unanimous vote. Least Jax let him map it out. It had to be Jax who pulled the trigger and Chibs knew that. This was a way of closing the door on all that bad history. One to the neck and six to the chest, Jax settled all accounts like Michael Corleone.
Gemma should be worried, she was also in on the killing of JT and Tara knows it.

Nero is tripping by the fact that they voted to kill Clay. Gotta live by the club rules, gotta live by the vote. Nero doesn’t know how long he can stick around, or should. People die around this family.
Tara eavesdropping behind the van hearing that Jax is really out of guns and going to go legit. It took a awhile but she really knows she made a mistake and should have stuck it out.

Tara giving out the club history in the van to Nero was letting Gemma know she knows the real truth and that she knows Gemma was in on the killing of JT.

Patterson is reaching out to Tara to try and fix this mess. She needs to exercise a little patience also.
Connor needs to listen to Jax. This is the story you tell the kings. Connor knows damn well Jax did all the killing, he can’t prove it but he knows it. Jax just gave Connor a promotion well above his pay grade. It’s only a question if Connor can live with this. He was great friends with Galaan. Jax is all business, Connor needs to see the bigger picture and sell this to the Kings.

Gemma asking Nero to marry her ten minutes after Clay is dead, wow. Nero hit her with some hard truth, her husbands usually end up dead. He ain’t walking down that aisle to the morgue. He also knows Jax doesn’t listen to anyone. Jax only listens to Jax.

So Patterson is handing Tara the way out she was looking for, all she has to do is finish the plan she started and take the bullet from Bobby and turn on the club. If she does that, especially after she now knows the club is out of guns then she really ain’t no good. She should try to salvage her marriage.
Patterson just got handed the case on a silver platter and she knows Jax handed it to her. Guns, dead bodies, I bet she gets a promotion.

Connor needs to finish that bottle and come to grips with what happened. He looks like he isn’t digging it. Maybe he didn’t want to be number one. Maybe he liked things how they were. Maybe he is gonna want revenge from Galaan.

Nothing like watching yourself make a big mistake. It always kind of goes in slow motion and is kind of surreal. Tara’s only motive all along was the boys, she thought she was doing right by getting them out of Charming and away from the club. She made a commitment she didn’t live up to. Now she is in too deep to turn back, she has something like tunnel vision. Too bad hindsight is 20/20.

Well, the house is full, everyone has their seat, along with their popcorn, beer or what have you. Time to get back on the roller coaster. I wish I could get everybody this quiet before our own church. But in reality, our life is way more boring than compared to the Sons of Anarchy.

The sense of urgency waking up when it is not exactly how you went to sleep can be very alarming. Gun gone, baby gone, panic sets in. You saw the look on Tara’s face, straight fear.

“There will be some one watching at all times.” That’s a serious warning, and I think Tara is clear on what Jax is capable of. She knows about countless murders. Jax knows enough to get out of there before someone get’s hurt, mainly Tara. I think she got that veiled threat.
Gotta keep on keepin on. You have a fire? Have a fire sale. Gotta put the garage back in order just like the guys are doing. Gotta make it business as usual. Can’t let anyone beat you down, no one. Gotta just get up and keep swinging.

Unser is a perfect example of someone keepin on. Got Cancer, living out his twilight years in an airstream, on the lot of the outlaw bikers that you have been protecting for years. Just gotta keep on, roll with whatever life throws at you.

Nero is another example of this. It’s all just business as usual for him, another day in the life. I think after you have gotten locked in a box for a while or have almost died a couple of times, everything gets put in perspective, what’s really important.

Jax just riding on the bike alone is good. That will clear his head. There’s something about the road, the wind, the sound, all of it. It really does make you feel free, clear your head. Helps you put everything in order.

I don’t think Tara liked being watched, especially by West, who she doesn’t know at all. West has no history with Tara, he doesn’t know her so he has no sentiment either way. Tara has been bending the will of everyone she knows, but she can’t bend West.

Clay is laying in wait. Padded cell, straight jacket, he knows he is paying dues, probably just wondering when it’s all paid off. Karma’s a bitch, aint got no sense of humor either.

Wendy is done. Back on the needle, waking up to fix again and can’t because she has to puke first. One thing about dope, no matter how long you stay away, ten years, twenty years, as soon as you pick it up again you are right back where you left off.

Galaan is another kind of criminal. I am seeing him in a new light. Jax should have killed him long ago. Galaan is on a mission from God. That means he feels everything he does, everyone he kills, he is just doing his holy duty. Can’t mess with a guy like that.

Jax feels guilty for what happened. He looks at the kids at the school and blames himself. He has a conscience, that’s a tough thing to have in a game of life and death. I don’t think Galaan has a conscience.
Tara looks at the blood stain on the floor, the fake blood stains, and he dwells on past mistakes and possible future ones. She knows she screwed up. She would have to know deep in her heart, as she watches the whole thing implode. This is not what she signed up for. She signed up for better or worse. She knew Jax wasn’t a saint, she turned her back on the only family she had, bad decision.

Jax is sitting in church? I don’t think he is asking for forgiveness, I think he knows it’s too late for that, too many bodies under the bridge. Maybe he is just asking for a way out of this whole mess.
So Clay’s trial got moved up, Clay is still holding some cards to play. He knows anything that happens after this, like him really breaking out, will be a miracle. Nothing to do but keep on, and play the cards you been dealt. Just gotta play them close to the chest.

Lowen spilled the beans and Margaret Murphy is spooked. She has to cut her ties from Tara and this whole mess. Tara is watching her whole plan fall apart. Gemma got through to Margaret Murphy, she knows she let Gemma know the truth. If Gemma goes to the hospital, Margaret is finished. Time to split till the dust settles. She is scared and rightfully so. Anyone that has crossed Jax in this whole mess is probably going to pay.

So Diosa Stockton got their license to operate. I think Patterson will do whatever to get out of there with a new check on her resume. She doesn’t care how she gets it, She will even make a deal with what she considers to be the devil, Jax Teller. Jax and Collette have a thing and everyone is noticing it. Nero knows business and pleasure don’t mix.

Jax telling everyone including Nero about Tara was big. That has big ramifications for everyone if it goes south. Wouldn’t matter who Tara killed along the way, she would get immunity for her testimony and witness protection. That’s how that shit works. Sell out your family to secure your freedom. Happens every day, every where. It sucks because everyone starts all these things so gung ho, ready for anything, everything. Then it turns out not to be what you wanted, and instead of just splitting with the clothes on your back and not hurt anyone, you take down the ship. Happens every day.
At least Gemma and Nero are understanding, they get Jax’s loyalty, and his refusal to believe such a thing, that your old lady sold you out. Doesn’t happen often, but when it has happened in the past it was always all bad.

All about timing, huh? Galaan doesn’t give a shit about what time it is. He will clean house any time of the day or night. He’s on a mission. And now he is taking recruits, volunteers, involuntary or not. So these guys are gonna do a jail break. Everybody immediately starting singing that song by Thin Lizzy in my house, “TONIGHT THERE’S GONNA BE A JAIL BREAK, SOMEWHERE IN THIS TOWN. TONIGHT THERE’S GONNA BE TROUBLE, SO DON’T YOU BE AROUND.” Just shows you how old we all are. And these guys can NOT sing.

That’s like the big leagues, prison break shit. Ain’t nowhere to run after that. Galaan can go back to Ireland but our boys live in the good ol U S of A. They ain’t going anywhere. They’re between a rock and a rock, or a hard place and a hard place, take your pick.

Tara is just about over the tail, she has had as much of the Sons as she can handle for this life. At least the tail is Juice not West, someone she knows.

Wendy is done, just another strung out junkie going to spend the rest of her life from rehab to a halfway house and back. This is the person Tara was entrusting the boys to? Insane. Tara is freaking. She put her trust in a junkie, what did she expect?
Wendy telling Tara to stop lying? Now there’s some clarity in the junkie wisdom. Except it’s too late for Tara to come clean. She can only play the cards she dealt herself, and try to play smart. Tara isn’t afraid of the Sons or anyone else. She has killed a few people herself. She crossed that threshold long ago. From Doctor/ Soccer mom to cold blooded killer.

Juice couldn’t hold on to a bike if he had to. He just got that bike and Tara runs it over. See she wouldn’t have done that to West, she didn’t know West. He might have shot her. Juice wasn’t going to shoot her and she knew it.

Everyone was pretty surprised when Galaan got out of the car, especially after he just said he wasn’t going. Cacuzza isn’t tripping though. He just wants to do business, check out the guns.

Enter the Dragon, the Chinese pulled up. Chibs knows right away this ain’t good.

Wow, Galaan is a PSYCHO. He killed those Chinese thugs soon as they got out of the car. “Works better on flesh.” That’s quite a sales slogan. Galaan kills people like polio and cancer. He doesn’t discriminate; whoever is in his way is dead. Wonder how he will feel about the Sons when he doesn’t need them anymore.

Just as easy as you please back to negotiation. Galaan is a real good negotiator. Dead Chinese is not a complication for Galaan. What a mindset he must be in, do whatever I want, to whomever, and if I get killed I am going straight to heaven. What a concept.
Balance? I would say the balance in Charming resembles a gas powered seesaw. It’s just gonna matter who can slow it down enough to get off.
Unser is cool. It’s all kind of amusing to him. He figures he is on borrowed time anyway. Gemma knows what to do with Tara, let her unravel. Let her plan fall apart and everyone she was counting to bail out. Gemma knows when to be patient and let the work do the work.
Nero and Unser are both in love with Gemma. That’s not a car anybody would want to be in.

Tara is a straight up gun packing gangster now. That doctor shit is just a sideline. She has done more crimes than most criminals. And she ain’t going down without a fight. Hard to think Tara will beat Gemma. I gotta go with old age and treachery over youth and wisdom every time. Gemma has been at this longer. She has more invested in this family, more to lose. Whatever Tara has done, I am certain Gemma did that and then some. Tara misjudged everyone. She is alone, whoever she had is gone. She threw away her family. Betrayal is unforgivable. Tara knows Gemma is right, even the best case scenario would end in disaster for her. There are some things that people would rather die for than let go and betrayal is one of them.

Ain’t no telling how this will all play out. Forty dead cops, all the Sons dead, there’s no way to tell. Jax is still making a deal to save Tara, now that’s love. Chibs doesn’t look happy at all. He knows this jail break with the IRA is all bad. He knows the IRA is all bad period. There is no way the Chinese won’t want revenge, no way. Just more shit to avoid.
That Chinese guy shooting out of the van needs his site on that assault rifle checked. He missed those guys, don’t get me wrong, thankfully so, I am rooting for our boys, I just gotta keep it real. He was at point blank range. Maybe he got the case with broken sites.

Jax saw no way out except through the fence, battering ram style. If had just made it all the way through they might not have got caught. Wouldn’t have mattered though, the Chinese weren’t giving up, so sooner or later it was happening.

The Chinese just want business. I bet they have been controlling the neighborhood longer than the IRA. Jax is playing everyone he should just put the Chinese and Galaan together and see who comes out standing, play them both.
Happy is a Psycho, going after the guy with the machine gun cause he touched Jax, then sacrificing himself so Jax can get the job done. He knew if Jax got took everything stops. Yes, Happy is a badass.
Juice ain’t shit. Why the hell would he send Tara over to Diosa? Why the hell would he help her after what he just heard Jax tell everyone? That has to be Juice’s last screw up, gotta be.

Wendy ain’t nothing anymore except an unaccountable junkie. She would have burned the whole place down with her inside it if Nero and Unser hadn’t have gotten there. I would say those two are bonding. They need to write Wendy off. Only 2 percent of the people that pick up the needle put it back down again, 2 percent.

Clay giving Gemma all his worldly possessions was cool. He didn’t have to do that, they have so many dark secrets, so much time shared good and bad, he just figured she was the one. He knows he very well might die tomorrow.
Tara didn’t see that coming, Colette riding Jax like a cowgirl. Of course she would go ballistic. No matter what she has done. Jax is her man in her mind. And now Jax is done. No way Tara will come back from this.

Jax is still trying to patch it up after getting caught with his pants down, literally. If she only knew the lengths he has gone to, to keep her safe. And she pulls a gun on him in the street and it washes over her like a wave. The realization of what she has totally become, what she hates most.

Tara knew what she was getting into. Once you commit to something you play the cards until the game is over.
Jax is a good dad. Put his family first, that’s what you are supposed to do.

Unser and Nero hanging out? I guess they really did bond.
Clay living his last night in stir, maybe his last night alive as far as he can see.

Everyone knows they might die tomorrow. Jax has what he loves most, his family, what has he got to live for?

Chibs is one cool cat. Jax is lucky to have him. Chibs is mad loyal, he will go down with the ship if necessary.

Happy ain’t tripping about shit, he’s digging his chow mein and the cartoons at the same time. The Chinese thug didn’t look as happy as Happy, wonder why?

Wrenching on the bike is just as good as riding some times to get your mind off shit. And Jax rebuilding JT’s Panhead is great therapy, just what the doctor ordered.

Patterson can’t give that deal to Tara anymore, it’s off the table. The deal she made with Jax over rides that. And Patterson won’t play her hand by telling Tara that Jax has negotiated a sweet deal for her. That would be showing her cards. Tara thinks no one would can or will help her. The only thing that is going to help her is the power of love.

It’s been a real interesting week. The only thing that was talked about in my house, my shop and the clubhouse is the Sons of Anarchy. You can’t blame a bunch of old Bikers and their old ladies for loving the show. It’s a TV show about the life we lead. Well, kind of like the life we lead. I mean we all wear patches and ride bikes. Other than that we are well aware it is a TV show. Most of us are just struggling to get by. Ain’t no gun deals, ain’t no indiscriminate murders in broad daylight, ain’t no clubhouses blowing up. Just forty or fifty hour weeks, looking forward to spending time with our families on the weekend, taking the old lady for a ride. That’s our reality. That and watching the best show any of us have ever seen.

It’s a trip to watch the Tara supporters lose their way and migrate to the Gemma camp. But that’s what happens when you are always searching for the truth.

The truth will lead you in many different directions. It is up to you to find the right path. That’s what Jax has to do. It can all be overwhelming, running a charter, trying to hold your family together, decipher who is there to help, who is there to hurt. It’s a big job being the President, the Father, the Son.

Gemma finds herself on her knew praying. Daughter of a Preacher, it’s probably easy to fall back into he ways of begging forgiveness. Gemma has a lot of begging to do to undo the web she has woven over the years. It’s never too late to start.

Tara came in the kitchen and saw Jax holding Thomas and the look on her face was priceless. She had the look of question. Questioning if her actions are the right ones. She sees Jax trying and trying and what she has done is not stand by her man. She abandoned him when he needed her most.
Nero loves Gemma unconditionally. He has his priorities in place, in the right order. First he knows who he is and will not waver from that. He evaluates everything before he makes a decision he looks at all sides. He has his values from the street, which cannot be bought or sold. The street is just the truth, good or bad.

Jax still tells Tara everything, he still trusts her, still trying to make it work. That was one of his problems, telling Tara everything. Old ladies don’t need to know club business. They are not club members, they don’t make decisions or vote. Tara should have stayed in her world and raised the kids, did her job. Then they might not find themselves in the mess they are in now. It’s a web of distrust and deceit on both sides.

Jax will stay loyal to Tara and refuse to even listen to dissent, until it is too late. You can bet as loyal as he is now is as violent he will be later when he learns the one person he trusted and confided in has stabbed him in the back.

Patterson is grasping for straws, and Eli won’t help her. 24 hour surveillance on Jax? There has to be a better way to use the county’s resources and tax dollars. Patterson will do anything to hang this whole thing on Jax alone. Everyone is an outlaw in their own way. Some outlaws just have the law behind them.

So Clay is gong to run the show? From jail? They’re going to really break him out? This is going to be something to see.

Unser is dying a little every day, so I don’t think a beer for breakfast or a joint for lunch is beyond his reach. He’s going to self medicate into the next plane. He watched Jax grow up, he is still in love with Gemma. This is his family, that’s why he is always trying to protect it. Sometimes it is an uphill climb. Actually, most of the time.
Chucky is a freak for sure. He is loved in this house. I am certain by next week, all the brothers will have kazoos. I’m gonna make them leave them at the door.

Who is that girl beating up Tig’s bike? Breaking the storefront window? She’s another citizen with a gripe against the club. The town is starting to not be so friendly. Did you see those town people when she yelled rape? That’s a terrible thing to do that will turn anyone against them, even the supporters.

Is that Clay in church? I think it’s a little too late for forgiveness. I don’t think Clay is looking for forgiveness anyway.

So that little girl blames the club for the death of her Mom. From an accident JT caused with his big rig? 18 years later? Sentiment runs deep and people never forget. The loss of a loved one never goes away. Even after you have exacted your revenge, it just never goes away.

Eli is warming up to the club. Remember when he first showed up? He was out to get them at all costs. Now he is here to give a friendly heads up that the tail Patterson put on Jax is not going away. It’s pretty cool of him to do that. And to let Jax know he is the only suspect on the list, also pretty cool. A tail is the last thing the club needs right now. They always have a tail, someone is always watching. But it becomes second nature. You know you are always being watched and you act accordingly. It’s just part of outlaw life. Once you put the patch on, everyone is watching. It’s just how it is.

Tara doesn’t have big list of character witnesses. Tara is scrambling to cover all the bases, and Lowen is helping her. I believe Tara is going down and Lowen is going with her. I could be wrong, only time will tell.

Clay could only take so much of that sermon before he had to give one of his own. Pussy the redeemer, pussy is Clay’s salvation. It might be a long time until Clay sees a pussy, especially after he bit that guard’s nose off. There might not be a lot of salvation in Clay’s future after that move.

Business and family don’t mix. If you don’t know that in the beginning then you figure it out along the way. There is no nepotism in outlaw life. Sons do not run on the laurels of their fathers, not in this world. Everyone has to stand on his own two feet. Be responsible for his own actions. Nero and Jax are business partners and should try to keep it that way. It’s hard though, sentiment runs deep.

Barosky got shut down. Patterson is going to go after whoever is involved with Jax Teller. Barosky isn’t stupid. He knows to back away and hang onto what he has before he loses everything he has and is under investigation with everyone else. That’s a gift, to see past the next five minutes, or five years.

Nero is the man. Jax needed to hear all those truths. What Gemma did with Clay in front of the guards, what Tara is up to. Whether Jax believes it or not he is now living with doubt. Whatever goes in your head never comes out. Jax heard Gemma’s words about Tara, that Margaret Murphy was in on it, that she is divorcing him and taking the boys away from Charming, that there was no pregnancy. Now he has to find the real truth. He won’t be able to live with himself if he doesn’t. Sometimes it’s hard to be the King.

The dad of the girl is cool. He has been through it all already. Losing his wife, raising a bi-polar daughter, losing his house. All he can do is take a breath and keep packing. Jax has a good heart. He always sees the good in people and gives them the benefit of the doubt. Jax will help this guy somehow, I am sure of it.

Nero talking to Tara is a dead end street. Tara is committed, ain’t no turning back now for her. Too many lies, too many people involved. She has to pay her cards. One thing for sure Nero is right about Gemma, she will not take this lying down., It’s not who she is. If Gemma goes down it will be when she is kicking and screaming.

Nero didn’t expect to hear what Tara had to tell him. Deep inside he knows Tara is telling him the truth. Gemma did kill J.T., and she would have killed Clay. Nero knows it to be true. Truth hurts.
So the Doc giving Clay the cell phone is on the Irish payroll. The IRA can get everywhere it seems, even inside.

Gemma got the truth out of Margaret Murphy easily enough. Gemma has been manipulating people for years, she is an expert at it. Now Gemma knows for sure that Tara was never pregnant, that Wendy was in on it. Only one thing left to do, enlighten her son, who won’t talk to her, and if he does, probably won’t believe her anyway.

So they are voting to make a deal with Patterson. Jax should have done this on his own without involving the club.. Outlaws don’t make deals with cops. They know what they signed up for at the start. Making deals is not part of the outlaw lifestyle.

Patterson was pretty surprised to be sitting across from Jax at her desk. But he is giving her an offer she cannot refuse. It is a way bigger prize than she was going after in the first. The real source for the KG-9s, the real I.R.A.

Jax is right. This is well above her pay grade. She shouldn’t get righteous now, especially after she has made it clear she will do anything and everything to get her man.
Patterson wants blood and that check on her resume so bad she doesn’t care where it comes from. And what is Jax’s rationale for doing a deal with Patterson? Letting the cops do his dirty work? Saving the club? He can think anyway he wants, but there is no rationale for working with cops, none whatsoever. Scumbag outlaw and pillar of justice. Jax left with Patterson is contemplating the truth and where it is now coming from. Truth hurts.

Oswald is back and gonna run for mayor again. Good thing for Jax, they need friends in high places. Done with the gun warehouse that 20 bodies have fallen in, convenient for Jax, not so convenient for Oswald. Jax got Oswald to save the house of the dad of the girl that broke the window. Jax has a good heart and Oswald sees that.

A good heart goes far, in this world and outside of it.

Oswald leaves and the phone rings and my whole house says, “UH OH”. These guys go from the frying pan into the fire and back again. And rarely get burned.
Jax told Nero to stay out of his family’s business. Outlaws are people that play rougher than normal people. Where normal people will have a heated argument, outlaws will punch it out. Soon as Gemma walked into Diosa, Happy and Quinn knew it was trouble. They would probably fight a whole charter of Mayan’s than deal with Gemma. Happy has a soft spot for Gemma. He had to go break it up. Gemma is like everyone’s mom.

Jax is slowly starting to believe what might be a terrible truth in his life. All the fingers are pointing to Tara being the evil part of this whole equation. She should have never come back to Charming. Not without her priorities straight. Only a matter of time now before it all unravels. No matter how tight you wrap things, if you don’t stay on top of it, it’s gonna unravel itself.
Lowen was a little skeptical getting into Unser’s trailer and with good reason. As soon as she saw Jax, I thought she would shit herself. She knows for sure Jax is a killer. She also knows she tangled up deep in this web of lies. Attorney client privilege goes out the window when the attorney has a gun pointed at her head.

It’s a sad hard truth for Jax to hear. Everything he is fighting for, everything he believes in is a lie, all of it. That’s hard to take.

Lowen is in shock, she is happy to walk out of that trailer with her life. Jax is also in shock. He promised Unser no one would get hurt, no one except himself. It’s too late for that.
Soon as Tara heard Lowen say hello she knew the jig is up. The cat is out of the bag and there aint no way to put it back in. Only one thing left to do, run.
Nero had to confront Gemma with the truth he heard about JT. He had to hear it from Gemma. Nero knows there are two sides to every story. That was a tough story to hear, as well as tell. That big secret Gemma has been carrying for years, being part of JT’s death. It must have felt good to get that off her chest. It always does. If Nero stays after that story he really is in love, At least he can travel further down this road with his eyes open. “JT was a weak link.” Gemma said. She might not have killed him, but she let it happen, made it happen, almost the same as pulling the trigger herself.

Sentiment runs deep. That little girl had to come explain herself to Jax, try to find an answer in all this mess. Jax is saving her house, she had to thank him, maybe make sense of it all. Jax’s rational for saving the house is to relieve some of the guilt he feels for a tragedy he had no part of. That’s Hero shit.
Tara knows she is done. It’s only a matter of time before Jax will be demanding answers. Gotta make a new plan.

Clay still has hope. Hope can keep you alive, give you something to look forward to. If Clay pulls this whole jail break/ gun transition off the he really is a mastermind.
Jax is now dealing with the truth he has heard. He knows what has to be done, he is just dreading doing it.

That homeless woman looks strangely like the mom in the photo at the Putner house. Could it be? Didn’t the mom die in the accident?
Tara is packing. She better keep that gun close at all times. She knows what time it is. The Truth hurts. The Truth maims. The Truth kills. The Truth will set you free.

Truth Hurts.
