Another thing that was great was the way Jax talked the cartel down off the ledge when things went sour in the warehouse and it proves that Bobby is exactly right. SOA needs Jax. He really is smart about things. Not sure if there is any exit strategy with the cartel. Clay has bitten off way more then he can chew IMHO with the cartel. I am really interested to see if they can figure out an exit strategy. My gut tells me once in with a cartel there is no way out or back.
FX ordered a 14th episode of SOA for this season
Well that was one hell of an episode
Wow, this is getting tense.
Wow...did not see the 'hand injury' coming. And Clay has gone from wounded animal to full on force of nature. I was nervous for Gemma last episode when they were on the swings and it finally came to a head. What a mess. Was funny to see Unser all geared up fixing the crime scene. Man...when Opie sees Piney he's just gonna break. 90 minutes next week...something is clearly going to happen. Sheriff Roosevelt is clearly gonna factor in on extracting Juice from his mess, but will it be enough? So much stuff going on and it just keeps getting better. Read that Sutter wants to end it at season 7...have no idea how it's going to get to that point because things are looking grim across the board. Great show.
Review: Sons of Anarchy - Hands: This old man - HitFix.com
As always...great article, read the whole thing.A lot of people in this club have done a lot of bad things to each other, and those bad things are starting to pile up to the point where no one can ignore it anymore.
In a lot of recent weeks, I've been worried that a lot of the plot decisions were being made to suggest danger and major upheaval, but that ultimately the show would back off and find a way to hit the reset button. But Piney's dead, Tara's surgical career is either in major jeopardy or over (and the cartel still wants to kill her), Clay's two oldest allies want him dead, and Juice is still in a position where it's hard to imagine him surviving the season.
No matter where things go in the remaining four episodes of the season (beefed up from three; see below), it's hard to imagine this being the exact same club, and show, by the time we come back for season 5. And that, to me, is a very good thing, even if things seem so bad for everyone right now.
This was the other episode that Peter Weller directed (RoboCop). Once again an excellent job!
to back that up...
Rockmond Dunbar Talks SONS OF ANARCHY and PASTOR BROWN
and as a personal note to my fave show that I miss so much...Whatís it like to work with Peter Weller, as a director?
DUNBAR: Peter is great. I absolutely love working with Peter. I love working with actors that turn into directors and really know the language and how to speak to an actor, to get an actor to a certain point. I think actors make wonderful directors, so itís really great working with Peter. I love his sensibility. I love his way of storytelling, and his eye. He has a really great eye for pulling the story together and actually getting an actor to a space where playing the field is really comfortable. He brings out the best work in you.
When Terriers was unfortunately canceled, did you immediately start looking for another job?
DUNBAR: It was hard. I donít think that there are so many jobs out there for actors, especially African American actors, where we can pick and choose what we want to do. Iím always looking for that next job. From Sons of Anarchy, Iím rolling into another television series, The Game on BET. Iím doing eight episodes of that show. Now, Iím starting to get in the position where Iím getting offers. Sons of Anarchy was an offer. I have a small production company, so I try to create my own type of characters that I want to do. I donít think I necessarily have had the choice to look for a specific character. It just depends on what the job market is like, and what comes across the table.
How would you compare playing Detective Mark on Terriers to Sheriff Eli on Sons of Anarchy?
DUNBAR: They are two totally different characters with two totally different personalities. Hopefully, Iím portraying that, and they donít look exactly the same. FX gave me the opportunity to play a different character and knew that I could play it, and hopefully thatís shining through. Theyíre both two totally different ways of policing, and I couldnít even choose a favorite, to tell you the truth. I actually loved playing Mark Gustafson and I love playing Eli now.
