I read an interesting theory online about the finale re: Jax / Tig / Pope
Jax is going to side with August (Billy Brown's character and Popes right hand) to help save Tig / take out Pope. Obviously, he and Jax made a connection last night, especially with Jax questioning why he is so loyal to Pope.
I really like Pope's character and how he interacts with Jax. The scenes between the 2 are so deep and intense. I dont see the show killing off another main character right now, so I bet Pope gets the short end of the stick in this storyline. Also, by offing Pope, it really portrays Jax as a ruthless man (even more so than he already is) by taking out such a powerful player like Pope, which is obviously where this show is heading (i.e. making Jax a total BA). Also, remember Pope gave Jax the advice last night on how to deal with Clay - i.e. take him out, but don't make it look like you weren't involved so that you dont upset people. Id be willing to bet that if this all plays out like I have listed, Pope is gonna regret giving out that advice.
