How do you know that the event that sutter has wanted to do for a few years now wasn't Ottos "wake up call"? that was my first thought when that scene played (I laughed)

Jim Carrey most certainly was not a fan of the season premiere.
Tig is awesome.
Did Tara really just kick that girl's a$$? Does that mean her hand and wrist have healed? and that girl wouldn't have fought back?

I was wondering if Tara had metal in that hand (as a result of surgery) with the way she put the beat down on her ... If so maybe that is why victim didn't fight back.

Man, the critical backlash has been pretty strong. Keep reading a recurring theme of 'Did SOA EARN that ending?' What the hell man? It's storytelling. How is showing an event that happens all too frequently any different than portraying singular murders/rapes/drug crimes? This whole idea that it should be off limits because it involves children is ridiculous. It wasn't presented in a cavalier way nor was it out of character as far as what the show does. A lot of chatter from critics who have seen the first three that the initial reaction from the MC is one of covering tracks as opposed to being overwhelmed by the horror of it all. Well...so. These aren't normal people who share the same feelings that most of us do. Their impulse is to survive. The high moral outrage thing is tiresome. It's a ****ing tv show and if you aren't healthy enough to see things in that light you should be questioning yourself rather than others.
And Sutter keeps talking about how Jax's current stray hole represents that 'mommy' thing that he does not get from Tara. Upon relection, I can see that. His body language is very 'little boy' around her...and she took care of/soothed him. The fact that he ****ed her seriously casts icky light on his relationship with Gemma...but an action that may not have made sense at first is a little more palatable with this information. After all, Tara, let's face it, is about as emotionally accessible as a marble cactus.

I think a lot of the backlash is from people that don't actually follow the show, they just heard about it or watched it out of context.
Also, I don't think whether the gun gets traced back to the club (if it does, they are terrible gun runners) matters as much as that the storyline will be about how Jax , a parent, feels about what they are contributing to society.

I was more disturbed by Tig when he whacked off the guy in the piss tub. When Tig dropped his drawers, I thought oh no Sutter is into necrophilia. Luckily Tig just had to piss.

I will never hear Sittin on the Dock of the Bay quite the same way again.

I guess I'm a little confused by some peoples reactions to the show, there are and always have been consequences to the life they lead, why so surprised now?
