SAMCRO needs to find a way to get to Belfast. So with the help of a local or two, Clay believes he has found a way. But surprises come when news about the Sons’ upcoming bail hearing leaves Clay with a major sense of Glee.
Jax will also begin his pact with the Devil starting with the coaching of Gemma to get her off the homicide charges. He will also make a decision that will affect him, Tara, and Abel forever.
The Sons will also make deals and bring on new members that will cause ripples throughout the series.
What worked: OK, so for those of us who didn’t purchase the Sons of Anarchy season 2 DVD, how the f**k is Darby alive? Well, I don’t care because unlike Stahl, he’s the kind of a*****e I like in a gritty show like this. My hope now is that he is back on full time and that whole “being out of the business” stuff is just B.S.
I’m digging on the introduction of some new club members. I do find it kind of funny that it takes three new prospects to fill the hole left behind by Sack’s death. But they all look like they’ll be fine targets for hazing by Clay, Jax, and the rest of the SAMCRO gang.
I also like the new guy who wants to transfer. He seemed like he might be an interesting addition to the cast when he was introduced at the start of the season. And now that I’ve seen him in action, I’m thoroughly impressed, and I really want to know what Tig’s beef is with the guy.
I think the way Chucky has been used throughout this season so far is brilliant. He doesn’t stand around cracking jokes about having only thumbs to work with, and he isn’t the bait in SAMCRO operations. He is just a dude the gang uses when they need to distract the cops and excellent comic relief.
I am really intrigued by the pact made with the Mayans. Will there truly be peace in the town of Charming? Or does Clay have a master plan underneath, as he usually does.
What didn’t: Stahl. Stahl, Stahl, Stahl… I really don’t know how many more time I can express my disgust and distaste for her as a character. But her biggest crime is that she bores me to tears and Ally Walker overacts her tiny black heart out. I’m serious, someone needs to shoot this b***h.
Unser’s plight of walking the line between the law and SAMCRO’s pocket is starting to get old. Actually, it’s not starting to get old, it was old mid way through season two. The man just needs to retire already and his replacement needs to be brought in. Preferably someone who will make waves for Clay the way Hale did.
Final thoughts: A decent episode of SOA.
Episode: “The Push” (Season 3, Episode 6)
Airs: FX, Tuesdays, 10pm
What’s next: The Grim Bastards have a problem that could jeopardize Samcro’s new business arrangements.
