10 Things We Learned From Last Night’s Nostril-Flaring ‘Sons Of Anarchy’

The thing about this week’s episode of Sons of Anarchy is that, for the first time, we’re getting a very good idea of where the show is heading toward next season, and you know what? I really like the end game here, I’m just having some issues with how Kurt Sutter is getting to that point. Let’s hop right into the recap, and discuss along the way.

1. “Today I will be the man my father tried to be. I will make you proud.” — I really hate it when Sutter opens an episode with Jax’s voice overs. Their is no action on screen to obfuscate how hopelessly heavy-handed Kurt Sutter’s writing can sometimes be. He doesn’t do any favors to his characters with those voice overs.

2. Clay’s Life Is Spared. Again — At least, temporarily, as Bobby’s big plan to save Clay’s life was to convince him to confess to the home invasions, thus rendering Jax’s season-long search for PROOF completely moot. Clay brought it to the table, confessed his sins, and SAMCRO stripped him of his patch.

However, Bobby was the one vote that kept Clay from meeting Mr. Mayhem. DAMNIT BOBBY. At least this scenario is somewhat believable, and Bobby pulls the deal for the good of the club, to prevent Jax from becoming the man he wants to kill.
