Other than that it was a FANTASTIC episode!
I thought the whole Clay/Jax, I think he knows/I know what you did thing was going to go on for a while. Glad to see them get it out so early.
Henry Rollins can't act
I'm digging the new antagonist for this season. The situation that has unfolded (Aryans moving in and trying to get rid of samcrow, raping Jax's mom/Clay's wife, pushing vermin like that 2-bit nazi to sell drugs and prostitution) is going to create some really good story this season. Clay and Jax will have to work together and that alone will make for good TV.
I think (and this isn't my faith speaking) that Jax's mom finds God this season. There was the symboligy (insert Boondock Saints joke) with her noticing the cop in the sanctuary and then the cross on the wall in the warehouse. I really hope it turns out that way.
All in all, a good episode and I look forward to seeing how it goes.
I was in full shock mode when I saw what they were doing to Gemma. I didn't expect that. Jax protecting Opie is something I saw coming, but I'm not sure I agree with how he's going about it. When it eventually comes out who killed Donna, I really don't think Opie is going to thank Jax at all. (Also on that, what's with the previews for next week with Opie telling Clay he's on his side?!)
I already hate the new bad guys, which is what you're supposed to do, I guess. And you're right, it will make for some very good TV.
And I still think I hate Tara.
