    I wonder if there's a website that documents Stahl's lies, double crosses, crimes and murders.

    What am I missing about the hands on the steering wheel? Apparently I was zoomed on that.

    Opie wanted Stahl's death to mirror Donna's death, since Donna's death was a direct result of Stahl trying to setup Opie as a rat. Now that I think about it, Abel being kidnapped and this whole damn season was a direct result of Stahl killing a suspect in custody and laying the blame at the feet of Gemma. So, how many people can say they died becasue of Stahl?

    Donna
    Halfsack
    Cameron
    McGhee
    O'Neal
    Jimmy O'
    Jimmy O' s associate
    and Kellan

    Yeah, I am glad to see her go.

    And you have to admit, she does enhance the drama quotient of the show.

    I actually stood up and applauded after that scene.
    (yes, I was the only person in the room, still quite moving)

    He even used the same model weapon, if not the exact same gun that Tig used on Donna.
    (ETA, most likely not the same gun, as I'm sure Tig got rid of it shortly thereafter)

    If that's true, than maybe they weren't framing the Russians, as some people are theorizing.

    That always kind of threw me, too. I just figured maybe she always had that hairlip thing going and it was just covered up by make up. I didn't remeber her looking like that in Profiler, though she was younger then, too.

    In the show, though, Otto did a pretty good job on her face when he bashed it on the table a couple of times and bloodied her up.

    Man am I sad the show is over for now... I only got into it towards the end of the summer after I went through all three seasons of Chuck in record time and needed something else to continue distracting me from the bought of depression I had at the time. I tried i think two other shows before I decided to try "Sons", and within the first half of the pilot I was hooked. I finished season two the day week season three started, so now that it's really over I'm pretty bummed.

    What a great ending--the way Kurt Sutter weaves stories throughout the season (sometimes multiple seasons) makes it so much more awesome when everything culminates in an episode like this. Just think of how many things had to unfold in a specific way to get these characters in these positions.

    For example, Chibbs and Opie just happened be two members who weren't part of the raid on Zobel's church, so they're left to carry out this specific task, but it couldn't be more perfect--Chibbs gets his retribution on Jimmy (I had said all along I want him to be the one to kill O'Fallon) and Opie gets his revenge for Donna (In one of the best scenes the show has done to date).

    I'm gonna miss Stall-- she was absolutely awesome as the group's foil. It was a little over the top when she murdered her own lover/partner just to secure Jimmy O, but whatever. The way she sold Jax out without even having to just made her even more awesome. Ally Walker did a great job at making me hope Opie didn't go through with it (half because I want Stall around and half because I truly felt bad for her in that moment)-- but then I flashed back to her oscar performance after killing her partner, so I didn't buy the tears.

    Due to annoying distractions, I actually had to watch this episode in three parts so it was a little disjointed... Wasn't it obvious as the club geared up for the exchange that they new about the ATF's involvement? They obviously had a specific plan, and knew to switch Jimmy out before reaching the "surprise" ATF roadblock, etc... I know they were in on it all along, but was that supposed to be obvious or was Stall's double cross moment supposed to really fool us?

    I was only half-disappointed that they were all on it only because the scene where she revealed Jax to be a rat was f'in awesome--the entire club was shocked and disappointed, Jax was screaming about her signing his death warrant... it's almost a shame that it was all an act.

    The way it ended was kind of ambiguous though, because they made it a point to have Tara find and read John's letter, but in Jax's letter he basically says he's done second-guessing everything and doesn't care about what John wanted, so are these letters really gonna change anything? I guess they nearly confirm that Gemma and Clay killed John but I wonder if Jax is even gonna care at this point, especially if next season picks up a year later (which seems likely--I doubt it'll start with them beginning a year-long sentence).

    Seriously gonna miss this show though. Kurt Sutter deserves all the recognition he can get for putting this together the way he has.

    I was about ready to cancel the season pass on this show about 3 weeks ago. It was turning into such a soap opera. But the last 2 weeks have brought me back.

    One thing that's still bugging me.... Tara just let Jax off the hook for all the **** he put her through before he went to Ireland including Imaho? Really? Not even a WORD about it all? God she's weak.

    I think it was meant to meant what she physically felt not emotionally. As in "this is what it felt like having a 9mm bullet slam through your head."

    I really don't think they were framing the Russians. I can't find a picture, but Cammy Hayes had the same circle with a cross drawn on his forehead when he was found dead, wasn't he?

    If SOA was claiming it there would have been an A drawn.

    Correct.

    The scene in the car with Opie and Stahl was just brilliant on every level.
