    I thought it was ok, I'll give new shows a chance to introduce and develop characters. I guess Katey could be used in any other flashbacks they have but it seemed kind of a one off. Having Les Packer roll in for a minute was kind of random too. I guess Sutter wanted to remind everyone he did SOA. If Sutter wanted to do another SOA show I guess I would have enjoyed seeing them go back to John Teller and tell his story.

    Maybe I'm just immune to it, but the only time I noticed was when EZ's ex-girlfriend used *&^% (in a situation where it really didn't fit)

    It really didn't grab me at all. Loved SOA, but I found my mind wandering throughout this episode. Had no idea why they had the shootout in the cemetery, other than Sutter thought they needed a big shootout. Just like cutting off the guy's arm for info. Just seemed like for shock value. Kept comparing it to Sutter's failed medieval show after SOA. Will give it one more episode...

    Ok enough. I'll keep watching.

    I didn't quite understand the cemetery scene -- but probably because I wasn't paying attention. Was it a set meet?

    I feel the reveal of the mole and Mayan in-fighting was a bit quick. I could have used an episode or two to get familiar with the gang and their normal activities.

    The tattoo EZ saw on the wrist of one of the hijackers led them to the Samoan gang who apparently use a cemetery as a hangout.

    Galindo thought they were just hired guns but wanted the MC to bring him the gang’s shot caller for an interrogation.

    Gotcha, thanks. I followed the tattoo part fine but wasn't sure how the cemetery got into the plot. Seems a very odd hang out, so I thought it was a meet.

    How standalone is this if you didn't get through more than a few seasons of SOA? Can't remember where I stopped watching. Wasn't necessarily that I didn't like the stuff, but more just got buried in too much stuff, then think eventually had a hard drive failure or something.

    There will be nods to SOA but it's not required to have seen it.

    I was thinking through that scene,

    "All of these guys need to spend more time at a range. They can’t shoot for %#$%#!”

    I thought it was awful.

    Two guys are strapped in the back of the truck with machine guns and when the robbers open the back door, do they fire or try to protect the product? Then that ridiculous scene with the guy yelling at them for being robbed.

    Absolutely stupid. Kurt Sutter needs to find a new rap.

    You can find stupid, implausible stuff in just about every tv show ever made.

    And plenty of spares. A bunch were shot up when the truck was 'jacked.

    It was entertaining enough to keep watching, but nothing that blew me away. I don’t get why people are hung up on a criminal organization that assists in moving millions of dollars worth of drugs having the resources for nice bikes. Do you think the cartel pays minimum wage or something? We all blow our money on what’s important to us, even MCs. :)

    I think you're being far too nice in your opinion of the show. It was a waste of digital bits over the air and through the wires.

    What are the odds that the kidnapped kid is actually EZ's son?

    I’m not positive but didn’t they say EZ was in prison for 8 years.

    I first thought the kid was EZ's, that would be an obvious plot "twist" but they keep flashing back to 8 years ago when he shot the cop. I assume he was in prison from that point until his recent release.

    I'm still watching but the show is just ok IMO. The acting is terrible. Not that SOA featured great acting but here it's abysmal. I wish they had given Olmos a bigger/better role.

    Agreed. I’m usually multitasking through episodes but I pay attention when he is on screen.
