    Yeah, but Unser (if he was in charge back then) probably helped cover it up and make the story better for SAMCRO, the family, his Gemma, etc. etc.

    We already know Unser faked a lot of the info on the accident report in regards to the MC, mainly Clay messing with the motorcycle and the murder angle, so highly likely he faked info related to the mom's part in the pileup as well.

    IIRC, he wasn't Sheriff yet, but was first on scene either by design or happenstance.

    Almost reminded me of the same actress in Deadwood being terrified of Al Swearigan.

    They let Gemma in that hospital again? Isn't Margaret supposed to be an ex-biker old lady? She shouldn't be terrified of Gemma. There should have been a heels and earrings come off, let's get to rumbling fight in that room, not Margaret looking like a scared bunny rabbit.

    Lowen set new records for lawyer stupidity this season.

    The scene when Gemma told Nero about JT's death circumstances was powerful.

    If Sutter is so tired of answering questions about the homeless lady, why does he keep including her in episodes.

    Yeah, you'd think Margaret would have started kickboxing three season ago, looking forward to kicking Gemma's ass. Gemma is a tough bird, but old and out of shape. Someone with a little prep could kick her ass.

    Now she may then shoot you dead, of course...

    Uh, I've never thought of Gemma as out of shape and don't know why anyone would.

    Pretty good episode. I've found it strange that the show has a free form length this season. Many episodes have been close to an hour 15, this one an hour 32 minutes or something like that. Good thing I have multiple tuners and DVRs.

    It's time Jax kills Tara. That would be a twist.

    All the smoking and drinking. Mostly smoking. Same for everybody in the club. Have we ever seen any one of them exercise?

    They seem to spend a lot of time beating the crap out of people. Does that count? :D

    But it seems that the main reason Gemma kicks so much a$$ is that she blilndsides her victims, or sets them up so someone else has clobbered them before she gets involved. She's not really a 'fighter' ... she's a cheater!

    I like the fact that the episodes go extra long. I wonder if it's because there too much material for an hour or if the advertising rate for a commercial during SoA is much higher than for whatever show it is that follows it.

    I was surprised that we didn't see Wendy this episode.

    I added the post title to give a break between last week's episode and this week's episode.

    I did not see if Lin got shot. When I say Lin I don't mean the old Chinese guy, I mean the younger one from the earlier seasons that I am thinking of. Were they father and son, and did son get killed last night?

    And, Tara feels backed into a corner. What Gemma did was stupid. Yeah, yu beat Tara at 'the game,' but is it really the best idea to rub it in her face and make her feel complete helpless? She's not Wendy, who rolls over and takes the beating with a tear in her eye.

    She's Gemma Jr., who will rage and run your bike over if the mood catches her. Tara is a bad loose end that Jax needs to deal with, and soon. Going to the DA like she did would have been bad had Jax not already cut a deal for a bigger fish.

    i thought half my dislike was over when she was standing on the street with a gun in her hand asking a half naked jax "what's happened to me". i expected her to turn the gun on herself and put an end to a miserable soap opera.

    i'm also getting tired of the long setup of gallen/da/now the chinese/whatever...

    also going from last week's riveting, explosive scene with the lady lawyer to "you should let abel sleep" - yawn.

    I think the morning after was the logical step. A part of Jax likely wants to kill Tara. However, he loves her and understands why she did what she did. The whole point of him getting the MC out of guns is so he can have the club ad his family, too. He knows what damage the club has done to his family's home life. The **** hit the fan too soon for Tara though, so she wants out now.

    I think Jax gets that, which is why he is removing himself before he goes MC Killer on her. Tara needs to slow down and weigh the situation. If she were able to see clearly she would discount the things Gemma is saying and focus on slowly and painfully getting Jax to forgive her.

    But she is blinded by desperation and fear.

    I was glad the cop didn't take Tara "in" and get a deal. Tara really is an island unto herself now.

    It looked like the young Lin was shot. I don't think he was the one who got killed though.

    I'm tired of Gaalen. Hope he gets killed soon. He's too much of a cartoon villain.

    I thought Juice was going to go upside Tara's head instead of giving her the address to Diosa.

    I find it hard to believe that Tara's going to become Gemma 2.0 the way this season has gone.

    How many episodes are left? Usually shows end with something like a "Only three more episodes left before the final two episodes before the finale" voice over.

    I know "we" don't like Tara much, but I thought her "I"m going crazy" acting was pretty good. Convinced me.

    Yes, I thought she was going to kill herself.

    Then I thought she was going to kill Gemma.

    I know the desire to be with her sons prevented both, but doesn't she have a restraining order against Gemma? Wasn't Gemma in her house? I thought she was going to kill her. She should have.

    The restraining order was based on a lie, false charges and all that. If Tara tries to enforce it she will land herself in hot water, as well as the hospital administrator.

    I don't like Tara. I think she's a moron who made her own bed and now has to lay in it but I think Maggie Siff does a wonderful acting job each week. SHe's just stuck with a character, like Walter White's wife, who everybody wishes would just go away.

    I wonder if Jax Teller is the only hard core, killer motorcycle gang leader on the planet who's mama is always all up in his business. (Yes, I know it's only a tv show.)

    On a side note... There was way too much naked Jax butt displayed for the couple seconds of naked Collette butt that we saw. My congressman will hear about this.
