Sons of Anarchy "Playing With Monsters" 9/23/2014

There's no way in hell the new sheriff is crooked. That's going to blow up in the club's face.

August Marks threatening Jax. That's going to blow up in his face.

I swear. Juice is too dumb to be on my tv. I hope it blows up in his face.

It makes me chuckle that there are never any witnesses or surveillance cameras around when the club commits mass murder in broad daylight.

Looks like Nero's getting back into the thug life.

Lil' Jax: "Is my daddy a bad guy?"
Me: "Yes!!!!"

I kept telling my wife the same thing. I was thinking surely she is going to arrest Chibs and kept saying Chibs don't go.

That being said, if Chibs nails the sheriff, good on him.

I realize it is hard finding decent child actors, but Able is a creepy kid.

Other thoughts:

I knew Jax was setting up the One-Niners, I just did not know which side was about to get it.

Jury seems like he is planning a long hard cold revenge on Jax. Holding the dog tags while talking to Bobby, hiding the body of Gibby, and sending Jax his regards. I wonder if Jax takes out all of the clubs enemies, declares victory, and Jury ends up killing Jax in the end. I could see that. The one thing Jax did not calculate for being the thing that takes him out.

Skankenstein. Enough said.

Can the Mayans really force Nero to join them in a gang shootout?

This is the second episode in a row that I noticed Malcolm Jamaal Warner's name in the credits. Has he appeared yet and I just haven't recognized him?

I thought MJW had put on a lot of weight since Cosby. Maybe that's why I didn't recognize him.

Confused!

I've been watching carefully and without distractions, but I'm ~so~ confused! It seems as if Jax is trying to turn all the different groups against each other so that the Sons will be the only ones left standing at the end of the season.

I really hate to seem dumb, but could someone explain who is against who at this point?? I'm so lost!

In short, Jax wants the Chinese and August Marks dead.

The Chinese because he believes they are responsible for Tara's death, and August because August is standing in Jax's way to his revenge.

In his mission to destroy those two he has created collateral damage with a brother charter led by Jury. He wants an alliance with the One Niners, but they have their own internal strife. We saw the result of him working to resolve that strife in this episode. He and his Sons killed Chester and Chester's two closest aids.

In a master stroke you saw him to put the word on the street that any One Niners who wanted to align themselves with Chester to meet in the back alley in Oakland. The Mayans, pissed that their guns had been stolen back by the One Niners, retaliated against the meeting that Chester sympathetic One Niners attended (this is the one Nero took part in).

Lastly at the end of the episode, we saw the Sons deliberately set up August Marks against the Chinese by having the MC Grim Bastards pose as One Niners assaulting Linn's whorehouses. This was a move to pit Jax's two perceived enemies, August Marks and the Chinese, against each other.

Someone feel free to come in and correct me, although I think I got it all covered.

Right, except I'm sure it was the Sons taking target practice in the alley.

I thought this was a brilliant move. It weeded out anyone else that would have been loyal to Chester.

Why doesn't Jax just kill Lin and Marks any of the multiple times he's been standing right next to them? I know, I know. It's a tv show.

Because then he'd be starting a war with their respective organizations, and possibly with the other one as well.

Short answer is indeed 'TV show', but inn show answer is he wants to demoralize and destroy Lin. He said as much to Jury in the second episode.

And August is a dangerous opponent who cannot be met head on.

Jax fancies himself a strategist (remember the end of season three and what happened to Stahl? Do we really believe Clay orchestrated all of that?) Pitting August and Lin against each other meets Jax needs and I suspect entertains him as well.

This season I took the advice of many TCF'ers and watch with with CC on.
A much better experience, especially with Chibs. I almost know what's going on.

There's something about that new sheriff that is really super hot.
I don't like the idea of Chibs slobbering all over her though.

Note to self. If Gemma comes to the front door holding a pie, don't open it.

You are fine if she has a pie. If she has Pineapple upside down cake then you need to worry.

I chuckled when they discussed Gemma baking and then showed the cake. As if a MC gang matriarch would be a Martha Stewart...

How weird. I totally knew how the one-niner thing was going to go down but am too stupid to think the cop is setting up the gang. Now that y'all mention it, it seems obvious.

Just log the money into evidence, clearly document what's happening, and run a helluva sting on them later on. I'm looking forward to this.

Throughout all seasons, they seem to like brown best, right? Then you add the Nero friendship/with mommy and I can see how it kind of makes sense.

Then again:

Spoiler:


Nero comes to the conclusion that Jax is no longer acting on revenge. He's actually liking/addicted to all this killing and mayhem.

Really?

Wasn't it Nero and the Mayans?


Also, what's the relationship with Jury and the peckerwood who SAMCRO framed for the yellow murder/robbery? That his boy? As in son?

I don't know if I should be amused or bothered that watching this show has us referring to people as white, black, brown, and yellow.

A little of both. Normally no way would I say those words. Well, no... I do use white and black to describe people. My African American friends tell me they prefer "black" to all the other options, if for some reason you have to use skin color to describe someone.

But hey, I'm just talking about a show, man. Their words, not mine.

Oh its me too. I use the same references when explaining the show to my wife.
