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.

Episode 10, "Huang Wu", OAD 11/12/2013

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.

Interesting that Gemma introduced herself to Colette as Gemma Teller rather than Gemma Morrow.

Was that Katey singing the song at the beginning of the show?

Quite possibly, she's done a lot of the covers used for the show. Loved her Son of a Preacher Man.

But does anyone know that yet? Outside of Jax and them. And can it be proven?

If looked at it can easily be proven, the blood work signed off on was never done. "check the lab records".. done deal.

Tara knows it won't hold up to scrutiny.

Yeah, you're right.

I guess part of my thinks no one would look into it much if Tara "took out the garbage" and killed Gemma.

The funny thing is that absolutely nobody should want Jax's kids around him on a permanent basis. They were almost blowed up a couple of episodes ago. One was kidnapped. They both can be used as extortion tools. All kinds of his associates get murdered. He's a crap magnet. Jax, Tara, Gemma and everybody else with a brain should want those kids out of Charming and out of harm's way, at least until he gets them out of guns. Maybe not all the way to Oregon but definitely out of Charming.

Well it's certainly harder to get out of the gun business than it is to get in.

Tara is suppose to be an unlikeable character and she is (IMO). But I just can't stand Maggie Siff. I have a feeling she'll be around until the end of the series next year but if she doesn't make it that far I won't cry.

"Jax was raised around this kind of crap and he survived.", I can all but guarantee that is in the thought process.

Now, on the short term, until the Irish are dealt with, yes. But who would they all trust to watch the kids.

Personally, I'd send them up to the cabin. Then youjust gotta figure out with who. I'd send Wayne and a couple of the guys that the kids know.

I seem to remember Gemma introducing herself as 'Gemma Teller' fairly regularly back in the early episodes. In fact, it struck me so often I'd wondered if she and Clay were married or just together! I think she might have used 'Teller-Morrow' once or twice, but wouldn't bet on it. I always thought it was something of a statement ... a hint that JT was the love of her life, and Clay sloppy seconds ... but that's just me ...

Teller-Morrow is the garage. I don't think she's ever been anything but Gemma Teller (except before she married John).

Well, holy crap.

They've been dangling death over Clay's head so long, I figured they were just going to save it for the endgame.

I wonder what Jax is up to with the DA? Surely he has some clever way out of all this, after burning her like that.

I don't think it was Jax who wanted it.

More like Kurt Sutter.

(Great show, but sometimes things are a little too convenient, writer-wise...)

I am glad Jax confirmed he gets why Tara did what she did. It was the only way to explain why she wasn't dead yet.

I have to laugh at the poor DA, who's trying to get Tara to flip knowing that Jax is trying to get her immunity. Every time Tara and the DA talk, I can almost hear the DA thinking "Don't these two ever talk?!?" If there were just a little more communication in that marriage, the DA would be screwed!

Clay finally got to meet Mr. Mayhem!

(I loved the line by Tara which I think was prolly a nod by the writers to the reality of his role being played out long ago - when she said to Nero, "Clay Morrow should have been dead a long time ago...")

Perlman played it well - he's a great actor imo.
