Jax is using Pope just as much as Pope is using Jax to reach the ends of each own’s means. Pope is all about business and money. He sure seems to have gotten over the loss of his daughter pretty quick. Way too quick for me, but you know I don’t trust anyone, especially someone with a known grudge against my club. They have to be especially watched.
Lots of money changing hands, big percentages. Money is a powerful tool. I have seen great members turn out to be not so great when some money was put in front of them and they made bad choices. That usually ends very badly.
Nothing like the loss of a loved one, no pain as great as that. And nothing feels as good as exacting the revenge on the person or parties that deserve it.
Roosevelt isn’t going to stop till he finds out who killed his wife. She got a good scratch, so they have DNA which usually closes the case these days. It’s only a matter of time till they figure this out.
Clay is playing the sympathy card with Juice. He doesn’t need that oxygen, he needs someone near him that might try to save him. He needs people to think he’s weak while he gets stronger. He is evil smart. Unser and Clay are playing a game of fish, trying to see what’s what. Clay can not be trusted, he’s gotta go.
Carla is a sick evil twisted woman. Could you imagine walking into your kitchen and finding her in the morning?
Close vote, the table is dividing. Like I said, money is a powerful tool. It can get in the way of what is supposed to really matter. That’s one of the reasons it’s hard to continually put this one thing first in your life. It doesn’t pay any bills. It gives you something else – brotherhood, a family, which is priceless – but you have to be able to see it. Now Greg’s got a bandage on his neck, he ain’t bright enough to cover that up. Tara is more of an outlaw than a doctor at this point. What she is doing is for sure a felony.
The fact that these guys can all have a meeting and talk business without killing each other, backed by the CIA, is one big achievement. In fact, it’s so big, I think it’s safe to say it doesn’t happen too often in the real world. The last time they got together it didn’t turn out too well.
Carla is committed that’s for sure. She’s got real love on her mind. If she can’t have him, then she doesn’t want to live, that’s real love. Real crazy love.
Killing that guard is something that had to happen. His wife was just a casualty of the event and wasn’t supposed to be home. Tig had no problem canceling her contract. She scratched him good though. That’s gonna make people think he got scratched by Rita. Didn’t take them long to find the guard. Pope actually found the guard but no matter, revenge is sweet, and necessary, to close chapters that need to be closed. Jax beating him to death had to be done, Opie was Jax’s pal. A real pal isn’t at your funeral. A real pal is putting the guy in the ground that put you in the ground, then, and only then, he goes to the funeral.
Otto is the only one that can reverse RICO. Only problem is Otto is done with it all. He’s on death row; he’s got nothing to look forward to, except revenge. Don’t make him do something horrible.
Of course Gemma calls Clay to clean up her mess. Clay disposes a body with the ease of taking out the garbage.
Pope is a cold, calculating businessman, careful and thinking ahead. He’s got a five million dollar policy that insures his killer will be killed and his revenge will be exacted. Jax has a similar policy, so does Chibs, Tig, Bobby, Happy, and all the rest of the Brothers. Just being a brother insures that your revenge will be exacted, that your killer will be killed. THEN they will go to your funeral.
Unser laid some truth on Gemma, and the truth hurts. I don’t know what he’s thinking, those two are friends, unless I missed something. One kiss doesn’t mean anything. Maybe Unser is suffering from some kind of delusions. Delusions of Gemma.
I don’t think Roosevelt would have cared one bit if he had killed Bobby. Everyone is changing and getting further away from their own reality. Roosevelt is a good cop, not someone that takes the law in his own hands. He believes in the law, so to run Bobby off the road is out of his realm.
You reap what you sow. Sometimes you reap the whirlwind. That’s when heads go rolling.
Gemma has taken a swan dive off the deep end, out cruising bars for action. I wonder how far she will go.
Tara is a young version of that. She knows Jax is lying to her; they all lie so easily to each other. And when you lie a lot, then you can easily see when some one is lying to you. Clay has been behind this all along. No wonder, he figures if everyone sees it all fall apart when Jax got a hold of it, he would get it back. Clay is in way too deep to live.
You reap what you sow, fear the Reaper.

I wonder if you all know that I sit in front of my TV just like you. The first time I watch the show, I make notes as fast as my fingers can write, then I watch the show again a second time and type out what I see. I still use the two fingertip attack on the key board, but I am pretty fast. I don’t look at the screen or anything like that like a real typist does, I look at the letters. I didn’t take typing in school, I took shop class instead. We made zip guns with silencers.
It’s hard not to hate… until people make you hate them. Hate can move you to do amazing things, conquer obstacles; hate can drive a man to places he never thought he would go. Men are locked up inside and their hate will drive them to better themselves, or stay alive so they can exact their revenge when they get out.
Gemma has taken a swan dive into the deep end. She didn’t pass go or collect $200 dollars. She dove right into her own personal hell. Clay better gun up, better batten down the hatches, cause the truth is coming. It always does, especially with the brothers. Family always finds out.
There is nothing like burying your pal, your brother. You do leave a part of yourself on that box that will never come back, ever. I rode to bury a brother one time, he was my best friend and my brother, I was crying like a little kid the whole way. I didn’t give a damn what anyone thought, I was burying my brother.
The Mayor should be more comfortable working with the outlaws, he’s as corrupt as can be. These guys should be looking for an end game. Can’t keep doing this without thinking everyone is going to end up dead. There are already three brothers dead. The Brothel is a good gig for these guys, low maintenance, no one gets killed, well, maybe a few people… but they probably will deserve it.
Jax set the whole thing up himself, and he is going to share it with the club. Pretty cool, he isn’t required to do that. Good to see him in charge of his world. Very Presidential, regulating Gemma and Nero, then letting Gemma know how he thinks in no uncertain terms.
Everyone understands an ass whipping, it’s universal. It’s a bonding experience between two men. Club brothers are humans that play rougher than other humans. While some people will have a heated argument, Club brothers will punch it out, then shake hands.
Great fight with Jax and Galaan – that will bond them forever.
Chucky’s a trip. That is one wacked out little fingerless freak. Whenever he shows up the whole house screams CHUCKY! Everyone loves Chucky.
What the hell are they doing with that fat guy?
Wow, Galaan shot up the bikes with the .50 cal. That was probably so loud it was deafening, and I know, I’ve been next to one of those a time or two. The only way that is ok is that the deal is for so much money, that the cost of two new bikes is small change.
Nero made a deal with Jax he can’t break it, and besides, Jax doesn’t want to mix family with business, not the Gemma part of his family anyway. Nero needs to keep his integrity and keep working for his son.
OK the blackmail plan is sick, that is not how me or my brothers would handle anything like that. It just shows you what these guys are capable of. It also guys to show you this is exactly what a Motorcycle Club is not about. At least not a real OUTLAW motorcycle club. We like good old fashioned tried and true violence, around for thousands of years, and never fails kind of violence. Happy doesn’t look too Happy, Chibs either. They don’t want any part of it and probably just want to handle it with knives… not a bad plan, Savages.
Tig seems to always be getting bit in the ass, and he never minds. He is a real freak, through and through. Sewing up Tig is good practice for Tara, he won’t mind at all.
How can Jax NOT blame Gemma for the death of JT? He can’t, she is complicit from the start. I would bet she even planned it. She is lucky Jax even talks to her let alone not kill her.
The Mayor better get a clue quick that Jax is the real Mayor in town. Pretty smooth laying out his plan. The Mayor is in an all win situation. Jax is handing him his dream on a silver patter. Better grab it, Mr. Mayor. The Mayor and Jax, it’s all about being in business with the right people.
Those guys screwed up bad, Roosevelt will never stop till he finds out who shot his wife. The cops will go crazy.
I ain’t no dummy, it’s hard to ignore the signs, as to who is doing the home invasions.
Gemma can be real evil, but with a sometimes soft, motherly side in a gangster kind of way. Tara is a weed smoker. A smoking hot, totally cool, weed smoker. When she comes on the screen, we all whistle hard cause she’s everyone’s favorite, cool as can be and now Tara smokes weed.
The sheriff wants the skin from underneath his wife’s fingernails. DNA is the unquestionable thing these days to find the answer. Can’t argue with DNA.
I knew the Mayor would climb on board, he knows a good business deal when he sees one, corrupt officials always do.
The body parts have arrived.

I was that little kid on the bike with the playing cards being held in the spokes by clothes pins so it sounded like a motorcycle. Watching the clubs go by wishing I had a bike, knowing I would get one when I grew up. Figures I turned out this way.
Yes Donna changed a lot, losing your wife is one thing, but then finding out it was one of your brothers that did it is another.
Happy doesn’t look too Happy. No one does at that table. It is just real hard to wrap your head around the fact that you are not going to see your brother again. No retaliation? That is a difficult order. Sentiment runs deep. Just like when Tig ran over the girl that got them in this mess in the first place. Can’t work on emotion, got to use logic. Money goes just as quick as it comes, especially when it comes quick. Least they had it to spend on something good like saving their asses.
What the hell is Wendy thinking. Tara is right, you want to call a lawyer, bring it. And he isn’t three now, so go away for fifteen years and see if the boy finds you, but why confuse the situation now? Just one man’s opinion.
Gemma beat up that girl, caused a wreck, but it wasn’t her fault, it’s never her fault.
Nero’s girl aint no good, that’s obvious. She’s working both sides of the street. Nero is still cool though, thinking out loud, hoping someone is listening. Cool.
Gemma needs distance from Clay? Then get out of the clubhouse. Gemma didn’t know about Opie. That was like losing her own sons. Being the best friend of Jax, you know she watched him grow up as one of the club kids. Gemma breaking down, running down the hall, that was real tough.
Cool motorcycle chase, finally. You know for us there is never enough riding on the show, but we’re motorcycle enthusiasts.
Jax is the protector, getting the hooker out of town, telling the little kids to go in the house so they don’t get shot, always being polite, just like us, we’re always polite. Until someone isn’t polite to us, then things can change real quickly.
How did those bangers know where they were? Carla. I told you she was no good. Gemma should have known better than to try Jax on a day like this, she is way down on the priority list. Opie is dead, the send off is a real big deal. In fact I was real surprised that Piney didn’t get a big send off. I have been to some funerals in my time that had a pack of motorcycles seven miles long, hundreds of bikes. That’s respect.
I said it before and I will say it again, Wendy should stay clear. It’s pretty insane to see Gemma befriend her since she tried to kill her once upon a time. But Gemma’s deceit knows no bounds – there really is nothing sacred when it comes to Gemma.
Lyla is taking this pretty well in my eyes. She lost her man, still got his kids, but she ain’t alone – she has the club. Those are club kids and they will grow up with a whole lot of uncles, cousins, and brothers.
Gemma kissing Nero on the lot in front of every one was a no class move. Some men might have felt disrespected and walked out there and knocked them both out, Gemma first. Some men got no control.
Jax and Nero will be a good partnership. They both have an end game in mind, they both have the other piece necessary needed to expand, and most of all, they trust each other, which is the hardest and most important ingredient to come by. And Jax is right, family and business don’t mix.
Gemma has no shame. She is a survivalist and she is great at her game. She is as evil as Clay ever was plus she’s just smarter than him. Clay let his greed get in the way of his vision. Gemma’s vision is perfect.
Tara has come full circle, she is even smarter than Gemma is and just as ruthless. Gemma can twist the truth on anyone with so much ease it’s scary. I don’t even think she can tell the difference between the truth and the lies. I was surprised to see Gemma not help Tara give Carla that beat down. Although Tara didn’t need any help, so yep, it’s gone full circle. Tara graduated into a perfect old lady. Beautiful, sexy, smart, a weed smoking, take no shit killer with a PHD.
Nothing harder than burying a brother. I have buried a few in my time. I remember years ago I back drove one of my friends to the funeral to bury what I considered to be my little brother. We grew up together riding, fighting, messing things up, straightening them out, and I cried like a little kid the whole way. I don’t give a damn what anyone thought: I lost my Brother.
I can’t say enough about Opie Winston. He died like a warrior. He was exactly what being in a club is about. The Brothers. The Brothers first. Always.

There is no unity on the tier. When you get inside, all races stick together, that’s how it is. Jail is an entity all its own, kind of like gladiator school – you are either a victim or a victor, it’s up to you who you want to be so take a pick. Usually the bikers all stick together and don’t get involved in any other crews drama. We stick to ourselves, do our time, and get out.
I have a house full of people as we sit down to watch our favorite show; everyone has their spot. The kids who are old enough to watch are mesmerized, as well as their parents. Me, I usually take out a pen and paper to make notes, then watch the show again back to back to make sure I didn’t miss anything.
Jax was smart to get some protection in order before they went inside. It would have been over quick if those Latinos had not stepped in. But the day is long inside with a lot of time to get got if someone like Pope really wants to get you.
Gemma and Nero are getting closer than I expected, I guess she is really in the market for a replacement for Clay, and to be honest I think Nero is a good choice. Head on straight, all about business and doesn’t want to do anything except make a buck.
Bobby is the acting voice in command, which is a good thing in my eyes. He has his priorities in order, club first, everything else is secondary.
Pope is a straight up business man. He sees that it will be more profitable to work with the Sons than kill them. He still needs some kind of satisfaction for the death of his daughter before he can move forward. Jax instantly realized with the power he is dealing with when he walked in the door and saw Pope sitting in the commander’s office. Time to make a deal.
Kids first, that’s what’s important. No matter how tough or painful it is, sometimes you have to cut your kids off from a force that you think will endanger them, even if it is your own family. Especially if it is your own family. That is every parent’s job, to protect their kids from all bad influence, no matter who brings it. Gemma better sober up and smell the coffee.
Romeo is playing every side, covering all bases. His only concern is keeping the guns and coke running so he can keep the money flowing to fund his personal war against who knows who. He doesn’t care who runs it, Clay, Jax, Bobby, whoever, as long as it keeps flowing. His loyalty is only to money, and that is a dangerous element to deal with.
Juice is like a lost little puppy dog getting led around by Clay or whoever will take the leash. Nero’s main girl Carla leads Juice to a room to have her way with him and he follows like one of the working girls. Bringing Clay to Diosa could only end one way: bad. Gemma is a scandalous as she has ever been, sending Wendy after Tara. But like all my friends say, Tara is Gemma junior, only smarter. Tara has become a stone cold killer. She has her priorities straight, get her family out of Charming, come hell or high water. And no one is going to intimidate her, especially Gemma. Wendy is nowhere near smart enough to fool or intimidate Tara. No way that ex-junkie will win a custody battle with a surgeon, no way.
Jax hitting the biggest guy was a smart thing to do. You always go after the strongest force opposing you, everything after that will be easy.
Tough choice, kill Clay or save the club. To Opie killing Clay would have been saving the club. Clay broke rules, he has to go. But life is full of tough choices.
Gemma doesn’t want Clay any more so I don’t know why she went ballistic on that little hooker for doing her job. Women work on emotion, men work on logic, and of course sometimes those two things get reversed, but that’s when the trouble starts, when people forget who they are.
Opie Winston was and is a warrior. He is what being in a club is all about, sacrifice. Opie never did any wrong in the club, only sacrificed for it. He got out of the pen in season one and came back after he didn’t want to because that is what he signed up for. His wife got killed and he stayed, he figured out who killed his wife and he stayed, he was set up by the cops to look like he was stealing from the club and he kept his mouth shut. His dad got killed and he did what any man would do, shoot the man that killed his dad – understandable. He knocked out a cop so he could be close to his brothers when they needed him most, going into certain death, and when the time came, he sacrificed himself so that his brothers could live. Opie Winston is what club life is about, us first, Brothers first, everything else is secondary, including yourself.
When Opie dies my house was silent, old ladies were crying, I don’t want to say who, but even some of the members had wet eyes. Hurts to see a warrior die, but he is going to Valhalla to live as a king forever. Long live Opie, rest in peace, we will never forget.
Jax is smart enough to see the bigger picture, which is staying alive. Obviously Pope is powerful enough to kill them whenever he wants. Jax has to take that into consideration, and just stay alive. It’s not easy being the King.

Pretty cool group. Got the ol lady’s sister over, her friends, my brothers with their ol ladies, and all the kids ready for SOA night. Anything that brings us all together is cool.
It always sucks to get woken up by the cops. Trust me, it does. After one time you really learn to ask a few questions before opening the door like, “Who’s there?” or “What do you want?” and my personal favorite, “Do you have a warrant?” Roosevelt should figure Opie wouldn’t say shit, he was just fishing anyway.
Hard to not question all the help Nero is giving but then again you don’t want to look a gift horse in the mouth. The table has turned. You can see that in the way Jax regulated Gemma. He is for sure in charge now – top dog, alpha male. Carla doesn’t like surprises, neither does Jax, and neither do I. Come to think of it, surprises suck. I like to know what’s going on at all times. Especially in life and death situations. Or anything concerning my freedom or my dog.
Tig’s a wreck and no wonder after he watched his daughter be burned alive. He has one mission: get his other daughter out of town. And how painful to climb in that pit and pull out your burned child. Your heart would be filled with a hate that would never go away, ever. Dirty cop, cleaner, Laroy, and Darnell, all burned in that pit. All on Pope’s payroll. That ought to piss Pope off.
Who beat up Unser? That’s the sixty-four dollar question. Hard to imagine. Charmed life.
What Bobby did to Otto is inexcusable. You can not sleep with another man’s woman at any time, in any situation. This is a bad rule to break, real bad. Makes a man crazy.
Otto gives past intel, but they still have to find out who is giving present intel. RICO is an extremely tough thing to beat, especially with co-operating witnesses. Can’t tell anyone this info but Bobby making more lies, and no good.
Turning yourself in is never fun, but sometimes absolutely necessary. Gotta get the attorney on the right page, the bondsman in place with collateral ready, this way you can get out and fight your case.
What could be more romantic than getting hitched in a whore house? And what a story, wanted for capital murder. Nothing says I love you like capital murder, shows you will go the distance. That’s that cop Kohn from way back Jax is talking about. Tara is learning it’s about the Brothers. The whole thing is about the Brothers. Period.
Tig is working on emotion, but at this point can you blame him? Lost one daughter, in a tear to find the other, walking in on that scene, girl tied up; in Tig’s state of mind I would say those guys are lucky to be alive. Pretty nice of Jax to finance their escape. Fawn is as crazy as Dawn was and Tig is.
Unser wishes things turned out different. I am surprised Jax doesn’t figure Unser knew about JT’s death, and that he helped in the cover up. I bet Jax will figure it out, sooner or later.
As far as I can see, Clay is still spinning lies on top of lies. Bobby is the voice of reason, but no one is listening. They all have blinders on and ear plugs in.
Opie should have killed Clay the minute he saw him on his property. Not a court in the country would have convicted him. Clay killed his wife and father, he could have just said he feared for his life, he thought Clay was here to kill him, so he blew him away. He would have walked for sure.
Jax does need Opie, he needs good people around him he can trust. But who can you trust? Some times it’s hard to tell.
Nero is getting cooler by the minute. “Doesn’t pay to be greedy, every picture’s pussy.” He’s got his head on straight, and Jax sees it. He doesn’t get out much, that’s obvious. That high speed chase? That just made Jax like him more.
Opie has a plan, I know it. He wouldn’t ask Lyla to watch the kids if he didn’t. Distraction? Lyla is one gorgeous distraction. Opie should have gotten distracted forever, been less trouble than the trouble he is in now.
During the wedding, all the ol ladies were crying and all the brothers were drinking. Pretty symbolic, Tara taking off the SONS rings and putting on the ring binding them together. Kind of like a double meaning.
Romeo can do anything, he is the CIA…..AND the Cartel, sounds like unlimited power. Romeo can give them the protection they need. There is no plan B? There is ALWAYS a plan B.
Happy doesn’t like cops, that’s painfully obvious. And watching the law come pick up your brothers and take them off to jail always pisses you off.
I told you Opie had a plan, and a good plan I might say. He had to lay out a few cops and stick close to his brothers’ sides when they need him most. Opie showed some real class.
So Frankie Diamonds and the Nomads are dirty, that’s not good. Those guys are members, already in the inside circle, they know where to go, when and what to hit, no good.
Nero and Gemma, that was quick. Everybody needs somebody sometimes for a minute, sometimes longer – once in a while, forever. Being single ain’t what it’s cracked up to be.
Pope ain’t no joke, he is connected and his arm reaches far. The guys have their work cut out for themselves. Staying alive is a serious matter. It’s getting thick quick.

Something does happen at 92 miles an hour, everything flows, you move through traffic like water through rocks.
WOW. I gotta say it again, WOW. Maybe I’m getting old but I was glad the kids were asleep when the show opened with Gemma getting banged by that gangbanger. None of my brothers minded though. They were yelling so loud I am surprised the kids didn’t wake up. The Old Ladies had a different opinion – they were real quiet. Go figure.
Revenge can be bittersweet sometimes. Seems like this is only the tip of the iceberg. Killing the biggest gangster in town’s daughter has to have repercussions. Filthy Phil barely made it out with his life. Damn lucky.
Jax has gotta fix everything, and that’s a big load for one man to carry, any man. Being in the club carries great liability. It’s a full time job. And for sure Tara should be strapped at all times.
Ain’t nothing wrong with day care, we all grew up in day care. It teaches social skills early and develops a pecking order. Gotta deal with people forever, might as well get used to it early.
When Gemma woke up hard like that we were in tears laughing. We have all woken up like that. Some of us within a month. Lucky that banger didn’t get shot. A person can be pretty shaky in the morning, especially after a good party. That pimp is cool, a “companionater,” he’s all about the love, and yes he’s cool, courteous, calm, even after Gemma pulled a gun on him. I mean Rose. She must have been really loaded.
Clay not going to Piney’s burial is inexcusable, but where were all the other charters? He was from the first nine, should have been a nine mile pack. It’s all about the send off, last chance shit, although probably not for the member that you yourself killed. No wonder Opie is pissed. Should have been swift and quick justice, as long as there is irrefutable evidence, swift and quick justice. Street justice – the best kind.
Clay lost it all and he knows it. His Club, his wife, his brothers… all trust gone. He is straight broken. A broken man has nothing to lose. Very cool though was him telling Gemma he will take the information of her involvement in JT’s killing to his grave is honorable. They were in it together.
Jax is in way deep, can’t tell if he’s in over his head yet. The Cartel and The Feds are two people you don’t want to be in business with. Romeo is both so that’s two times the bad news. Big time arms dealer and Cocaine Cowboy with a badge? Sounds like he ain’t losing. Delivering Bobby from the slammer with no paperwork was just to show his power. Message delivered.
Roosevelt is hot on the trail, and still has Juice on a leash. I’m amazed no one is asking him what the hell that cop has got to say to him all the time. We aint talking to no cops, ever.
Pope is straight vicious. Cold, calculating, confident, with connections in high places, and smart enough to distance himself from any issues. That’s a tough combination to beat.
LaRoy got chopped up into little bits, and now Darnell’s in charge? Didn’t look to me like he was too happy about being put in charge.
Clay told the club more lies at the table. Another lie on a mountain of lies in a forest of deceit. Tig realized right away that he killed that girl for no reason. Chibs is disgusted; did you see that look he gave Clay as he left the Chapel? Priceless. So once they are alone, Clay straight up admitted killing JT. I thought Jax would jump over the table. Clay’s got a plan, that’s obvious. So does Jax, believe it.
I told you Darnell didn’t want to be in charge. And Pope’s bodyguard had to shoot him right away before he talked about that empty gun he was given to shoot Jax. Can’t trust anyone these days.
Tig walked into that set up blind. Always best to travel with a brother, that way there is at least one man with you that has sworn to go the distance and never give up. A man you can count on. A Brother. Once again WOW. Burned that girl alive. And Tig defiant till the end telling Pope he will cut his head off, what would you do?
Clay not being able to hold up the bike is the least of his problems. There is a vote on the table to take his patch, that aint no joke.
Tig is a badass, killed that cop, cause who said he even was a real cop, even if he was, he was a damn dirty cop that just torched Tig’s daughter, choke him out, sure, but kill the cleaner? That guy was probably gong home to a family. Didn’t have to waste him. Opie is crushed, Tig also, extensive damage. Nothing hurts worse than broken trust.
Nero the pimp might be more useful than it seems, but only time can tell. Jax has got to run, there is no question about that, going inside now without a plan would be a death sentence. Always better to run before you get charged in my mind. Talk to an attorney, maybe go to a deserted island, for a few years till it blows over. Hell, maybe even start a charter there, never come back, Stranger shit has happened.
The Gemma/Tara dynamic is getting deep. The power is being tossed back and forth like a volley ball. I would say it’s pretty even now, with Tara smoking weed and drinking, she is like a young Gemma, with a PHD. Now that’s cool.
Who beat up Unser? It couldn’t be, Could it? Anything’s possible, right?
Laroy, Darnell, Dawn, the cop, and the Cleaner. The Body Count is at five.
And we just got started.

I keep getting asked the same question, “What do I think is the mass appeal of the show?” I think that’s a multi layered question. The show covers all aspects of life. It’s like the old saying, (one of many I might say), “Every man wants to be us, and every woman wants to be with us.”
That may not be exactly accurate, but it’s close. The patch represents freedom, believe it or not. Standing up for your self on all levels, never caring about anything other than your principals, doing what you want WHATEVER it is, no matter what any one else thinks. A patch holder is willing to die for his beliefs. It’s all about principal.
When the civilian is in his cage at a red light coming home from his nine to five, and he sees a patch holder on his bike in his patch he knows that man is doing exactly what he wants to do… he is free. It ain’t for everyone, or every one would be doing it.
Sons of Anarchy transcends all levels. I think the mass appeal with women is not the guys on the show (well, maybe for some women, like my old lady’s friends) but that on SOA the women aren’t victims. On SOA the women are kicking ass and taking names, and I think women identify with that. Women like seeing other women standing up for themselves. Who wouldn’t?
The club is exactly like one big family. That’s why it takes so long to become a member. You gotta fit in like the missing piece we didn’t know was missing till you came along. Then you gotta show us, always US. US First. Forever. Everyone can identify with family. You either have a great one, dysfunctional or not, or you wish you did. Either way that’s your people. Your family. I think the rest has to be the action and the stories. Men dig action and SOA takes civilians to a place they have never been.
It’s getting real close to the premiere, September 11th. My house is all geared up. My family is a little partial, we like seeing guys on bikes in patches, wreaking havoc, cops in their pockets, blowing shit up. My Old Lady’s sister has been staying with us with her three kids, so between the cartoon channel and the educational channel this is going to be a needed break and probably a good education for the kids, considering they might grow up to be bikers. Hopefully.

We took the Bullet train to Germany. It travels at 270 kilometers an hour. I ain’t the best at converting this stuff, but I know 160 kilometers an hour is 100 MPH, so that train was really moving. In four hours we were in another train station with new brothers and prospects picking us up and driving us to another clubhouse where were again greeted by everyone. The clubhouses in Europe are amazing. Walking in Amsterdam and Frankfurt you get the feeling that you are a Viking. The respect and awe the members get from the people is way cool.
The show is a big topic over there as the MC community is huge. There are 55,000 patch holding members with that number and countries expanding all the time. The clubs are moving into the Eastern block, as well as South East Asia. That’s probably one of the reasons for the mass appeal of the show. I met a Belgian truck driver who had a brand new rig with an SOA paint job on it that was amazing. Portraits of all the guys that are so lifelike it was amazing. Talk about fans, the show is on cult status in most countries.
Family, that’s what the show is really about. A tight knit family that grew up in the club as so many do, the mass appeal comes from that one fact. Family is what everyone can relate to. The clubs are families that do everything together and just enjoy each other’s company. They choose to hang out with each other, more than with civilians. It comes down to who you trust with your life.
We got in one of the members cars and got on the autobahn, no speed limit and went to dinner in a clubhouse a few towns over. They can really drive in Europe. We are cruising in the left lane at 260 kilometers an hour, flashing the lights at cars in front of us and they get right over while we pass them like they were parked. Cool, until someone did it to us in a big wide Maserati. I asked the member driving how fast that guy was going and he said about 300 kilometers an hour. Almost 200 MPH. Fast.
The bikes the guys ride are amazing, twin cam FXR’s with Ohlin Swedish front ends, and Wilbur rear piggy back shocks, Twin cam motors with the fuel injection set up taken out and a carburetor put on. I asked the member why he did that and he said he doesn’t want all that computer shit on his bike. It’s my next project, a carbureted twin cam FXR with great suspension. I am already drawing up blue prints. The ol lady is already freaking, another bike? Yes another bike.

Wherever we went the topic always turned to the show. It’s easy to understand that club members and their families would be totally into a show about their lifestyle. I think the rest of the public is just into it cause it’s real, the stories are great, full of action and family which everyone understands. I wonder if the guys know they are all multi-lingual. SOA is broadcast in each country with that country’s language. So in Germany the guys speak German, in Norway, they speak Norwegian. Pretty cool. Talk about crossing barriers.

Hey folks, great to be back. My computer crashed a while and to be perfectly honest it hasn’t been on the top of the to-do list. My ol lady has been concerned with a new business she is starting and won’t let me put my fingers on hers. We have a rule in our house, if you bought it it’s yours. Even if it’s mine.
Work has been good, real busy, guess some times it’s better than others, it’s been so good decided to take the ol lady to Europe and visit some of the Brothers there. Haven’t been there in awhile, so seeing Brothers again was really great.
That’s what it is to be in the club, airport pick up and drop off, place to stay, bike to ride, hell, a dog to walk if that is what you need. Whatever you need. We got picked up at the airport by some young members and they greet with this intensity, look in your eyes and say, “Hello BROTHER.” And he means it. Not just words, it’s for real, the Brotherhood is stronger and bigger than ever and it was great to see. There were so many new Brothers there is no way I could remember them all. And being from California, where this whole thing started, is like being like royalty over there.
We landed in Holland and only two members knew we were coming. They had made a surprise bar b q at the clubhouse and all the members, their wives and kids showed up. Big surprise to see me there. Word traveled fast that a visiting California member was visiting and members started showing up from other charters. The party lasted till dawn.
You see the governments and homeland security has stopped letting members from all the big MC’s enter into this country unless they are from here, so it isn’t very often we get to get together with our overseas brothers. So any visit is special.
The show is huge in Europe. In fact it is not only number one in our country, but ten others. Holland has just finished watching season one on the television, Germany is just finishing season three. But they are all caught up from the internet. Harley Davidsons, Motorcycle Clubs, are all over. They are the Rock and Roll starts from the street, the People’s royalty, non patch holders look at a patch holder and think, there is a man that is not only not afraid, but on the contrary, proud to show the world who he is. Some people type their resume, others wear theirs.
