I caught a clip from season one and I couldn't believe what Opie looked like back then compared to know... He's needed a shower and a shave for like three seasons. I didn't even know that he was Gerry (Gary? Geary?) from "Remember the Titans" until halfway through the series. That's one of the things I love about this season--Pope comes out of nowhere and makes everyone they've come up against in the past--Cohn, Stall, the white supremacists, the Irish, the Mayans, the Niners, the DA, Roosevelt--look like a bunch of kids on a playground. It's proving just how small time they really are. Tons of good stuff to come out of that. I'm psyched to see what Sutter has planned for how they'll get out of this thing. It's gonna have to top the "intricate as ****" plan they enacted in season three to play Stall and not go to jail forever. I said the same thing today. When Jax threatened the guard I was all "thank god, this guy needs some course correction..." I was worried it would get dropped but then he mentioned it again later so you know it's gonna be a thing. Actually looking forward to it--haha. BTW, I was talking about the show with a coworker and she had a good point--wouldn't it have made more sense for them to give Pope Otto? His price was a dead son, he didn't care who, and Jax knows that Otto gave them up to the feds. It would have been a good way to wrap up that storyline while keeping the four in jail alive. I wonder why Sutter didn't go there... The obvious reason is that "the story is better if Opie dies", but he doesn't usually write like that--he doesn't do stuff just for the sake of it (typically)... I get that it wasn't stated that they were in Stockton (or was it?) but that shouldn't really matter, they could still get to Otto (or have Pope's people do it) and satisfy Pope's requirement. But oh well.
