    Before the vote Tig told Chibs he sent TO with Alvarez to deal with Conner, saying, "He shouldn't be part of this vote."

    For those who didn't go to parochial school, Vanity Fair covers the Jesus references:
    http://www.vanityfair.com/vf-hollywood/2014/12/sons-of-anarchy-series-finale-jax-dies

    It sums it up quite well. Besides the heavy handed, poorly written deification of Jax, it only reinforces what I fear way too many feel about the "Sons": As some brotherhood, lots of appropriate bonding, looking out for each other as if it was some family to be emulated. Given their motorcycle company sponsorship for quite a while they didn't seem to think the primary users of their product gave it a negative image.

    The biggest upside of the poor finale was that I'm not sorry to see it go. For most of this season I came along for the ride just hoping to see the bad guys get what they deserve. Nope, didn't happen. That was enough of a disappointment, but not having a show go they way I wanted is not the writer's fault, it's not like I sent a note asking for it. But it could have at least been different than I wanted and good.

    This, but the exact opposite for me :)

    Didn't want to see it go, thought it ended pretty well, and sometimes you end up rooting for the bad guys

    When Jax called for the vote to bring TO in. He explained about the unwritten rule, and how he got the other Presidents to approve violating it.

    RE: Explaining the unwritten by law

    While they were at Diosa (perhaps the guys in this thread pay more attention to those scenes than you do, which is why none of us are confused ;) ) and TO was left out in the main room, Jax explained that he had talked it over with the other president's and that they had agreed to letting that unwritten rule go. They then had the vote, and brought TO in to give him his cut.

    (Edit: Or what Rob said while I was typing)

    The only issue I had with the scene, they made special note that in light of TO's past as a Grim, and all he had done for the club, that he shouldn't be a prospect. Then they give him his cut, which says "Prospect" really big on the back. But I can overlook that.

    Overall I liked the finale, as well as the thought that JT committed suicide by truck, then some 25 years later, Jax did the same exact thing on the same exact bike.

    I do recall this part - they said they were going to patch him in. He was still a prospect, but his cut had Mr Mayhem on the back, with Prospect underneath, and both the SOA and Redwood Original patch in front (on the other side was Prospect). All of the previous Prospect cuts just said Prospect on the back and front, with NO Mr. Mayhem and neither the SOA or Redwood Original patches. So TO was given more respect than the normal Prospect.

    I was wondering when someone would bring this up!

    My thoughts, they voted/talked about it at the last minute, so they could either give him his cut w/ PROSPECT on the back, or not at all.

    It was implied. No specific mention of "the bylaw."

    Guess I might have to go back and re-watch as well. I do remember Half-Sac's prospect cut being pretty plain, so I'm sure you're right.

    I'd caught everything the article mentioned except for the call back to the first scene, first episode with the crows. So it wasn't just the author that made the connection.

    I don't usually see references to Jesus in Porky Pig cartoons. Off the top of my head all I can come up with is that Jesus probably didn't eat pork.

    I thought TO wasn't part of the vote because Jax said he wouldn't get a seat at the table for at least a year even though he was coming in full patch.

    Jax said he couldn't hold office (I presume President, VP, Sgt at Arms) for a year, he still has voting rights.

    Because he's black?

    I don't quite get Jax wanting him in the club, or why the others would. And why would TO want to be in this club. It's really pretty scrawny crew who are really mentally messed up.

    And after the killings lately, just about everyone but brown wants revenge on them. They might not survive until next season.

    I'm reading a book where the mom uses Mr. Fork and Mr. Spoon to help the toddler eat.

    So I giggle when they say "Mr. Mayhem". :D

    It was spelled out, with very specific mention of "the bylaw."

    The closest it got was, "I talked to Parker and the others. I told them, 'it's a charter by charter choice.' They don't have to like it, but I need support from club leaders. This can't cause any kind of exodus. We need this to land. And they agreed." Bylaw implied.
