    They killed at least a dozen people tonight. The body count is over a hundred now by my estimation. Charming is the murder capital of the USA.

    Anybody still defending Jax, anybody that feels sympathy for the SOA, has lost perspective. They are murderous thugs, criminals, gun runners, gangsters, and all around bad people.

    By the way, the thing that rings the most false of all, is that the SOA are the only outlaw motorcycle gang in the world who are not racial bigots. This is 100% politically correct and totally unbelievable. In the real world the Sons, the Bizlats, and the Blacks from Oakland would all be locked in racial conflict and if a member of a different color gang went into another gang territory, they would be murdered for the crime of being the wrong color. Odd that the show gets this correct for the prison episodes, and wrong for life outside. Obviously a conscious choice to be PC.

    What gang are you from? Are you Clay Morrow's brother in law?

    FIFY.

    Anyone trying to compare a TV drama ABOUT a motorcycle gang with real-life morality is probably not of this world!


    The scene with Juice and Nero was intense! Jimmy Smits, if you didn't know it before, is a great actor. He said more without words than most characters can say in a whole season! I think it probably made his (Nero's) decision 100 times easier.

    The scene with Nero and Jax was even better, IMO. You could almost see the many conflicting threads of Nero's thoughts, without a word being spoken.

    Funny. I have been thinking for the last handful of episodes that Smits is the best actor on the show. Nero is now a first string cast member but SoA has an impressive bullpen of established actors who come in and do great jobs. This season alone has had Donal Logue, Peter Weller, Kim Dickens, CCH Pounder, Rockmond Dunbar, Walton Goggins.

    I agree with Nero's guy. Being associated with the Sons brings more trouble than it's worth.

    What do CCH Pounder's friends call her, CCH?

    I think that was awesome too, but better? No. Certainly equal to it, but I wouldn't say better. Personal choice, I guess.

    Can't wait to see where it's going. In a sub-par season, it's a shining light, IMHO.

    I'd only say "better" because in the Juice scene, it was all spelled out...Juice was saying things, and Nero was responding (silently, but we already knew what he was responding to). In the Jax scene, everything that happened, happened on Smits's face. He had no help from the dialog. So not necessarily a better scene, but more demanding acting.

    When Lin was laying on the ground after he was shot but before they finally killed him off, I would have loved if he had said his famous line from Deadwood. Would have been hilarious.

    All of this.

    When Nero went all gangsta in an earlier episode, I was like -- whoa! Smits is doing a great job playing a guy who now really wants to stay out of that life. I'm sorry his real-life wife's character died so early in the series.

    (He is also GORGEOUS!!!! Lawd, Lawd. )

    because she does love Jax, and does care about the MC. She just doesn't want her kids around it.

    Yeah, I think she was ready to do it, until she and Jax had their little moment.

    Now she's abandoning the second-dumbest plan ever in favor of the dumbest plan ever.

    Running. So instead of just having the Sons after her, she'll have the Sons and the Feds after her.

    With no job and no money. Maybe she should hide out at Wendy's house. Wendy's not using it. Wendy seems to not have a job.
