Oh and if you read the Sepinwall review(#118) I posted, Happy(who isn't around enough if you ask me) co-wrote the episode. Just a little trivia.

finally watched it. wow.
I'm often clueless, but..
- why didn't clay kill gemma? Too obvious, or still really loves her? But if he let her go (even after an ass whooping), wouldn't he assume she'd go straight to Jax?
- Sheriff seems to be warming up to the guys, from Jax saying "not now" and his backing off, to his offer of "help" to Juice..
- Thought the script of Jax telling Tara "please get mad or something" to her "this had to happen" response was great. very good dark irony through the whole thing, if that's even a good way to describe it.

I think there are some lines even Clay won't cross. And he probably still believes he can 'fix' things. And the card he holds over Gemma(about her complicity in JT's murder) well maybe he thinks thats enough. But, as you could see at the end...NOBODY raises their hands to Gemma.

Well, it may sound cliche but every time I think things have reached a complete no-holds-barred breaking point Sutter and Co. elevate it further still.
The end of this season should be a helluva ride, and I do find it interesting that Labrava brought up the fact that most fans want to see Clay dead.
All signs are pointing that way, which makes me think he we be around for the long haul.

I wonder if Otto is really going to pull the trigger or whether he is just ****ing with Potter. And what's with the priveledges for the other guy? Poor Lem, errrrr I mean Kozik. Shield spoiler deleted because Kingsqueen STILL hasn't finished it....maybe that 'you gotta be ****tin me' was a not-so-inside joke. So Juice finally told Chibbs his secret(nice scene b.t.w. and the little 'two men huggin in a bathroom' tag at the end was pretty funny) and it would seem he's in the clear...so why the check-in? And Unser...man, he really took a chance. But did he overplay his hand. Opie is all rage right now. And the anger he is showing toward Jax, while not unexpected, could be the worst. Jax has always been able to talk Opie down off the ledge. Jax's baby mama coming back, well let's hope that goes nowhere. I don't think any of us want a prolonged 'losing Abel' domestic storyline. I honestly do not know when the Clay situation will resolve itself. All signs point to something going down before the season ends, but with two escape routes available to him(the Irish/the Cartel) I really see Clay 'going on the lam'. One of the characters that nobody ever talks about, yet he consistently shows sides we weren't expecting, Tig. Man, when he saw Gemma. You always assumed that he was Clay's lapdog...well not no more. More nice work b.t.w. Congrats to Sutter for consistently showing multi-faceted personalities on characters that could be so easily boxed in to stereotypes. Kingsqueen said last week that this could be the best season yet, and I argued that season two with Zobel, Henry Rollins, Gemma's rape was the highpoint of this show. Well, Kingsqueen, it appears I may owe you an apology.

Review: Sons of Anarchy - Call of Duty: Blown up real good - HitFix.com
Disagree with his argument that anything less than Clay eating a bullet is going to ring hollow, but if there is a critic who 'gets' this show it's this guy.

anyone think Clay's speech to Unser about 'having an end date...makes a man dangerous' could be eerily propetic? I just don't see Clay getting taken out so easy, in order to survive as long as he has a man has to have a certain cunning/craftiness. And I sure don't expect him to go out without taking someone with him.

Yea, I'd get working on that apology if I were you. I'd say that this is currently tied with all of season 2, and this season isn't over yet.

Not sure what bothers me most about ol'Tom, the wicked hair plugs, the jittery almost Michael J Fox-ian delivery, or the oh so blown out nasal tone overwhelming his speech. Casting him as a pornographer was almost a detriment to their good names.
