Sons of Anarchy has taken some pretty interesting turns this season. Tara (Maggie Siff) has become a skilled master in the art of illusion. I get that she has been pushed so far that she feels this is her only option, but there is always a price to be paid. Is she ready for the dire consequences that will result when and if this plan blows up in her face? Too many people are intertwined that it’s only a matter of time before the soapbox of morality comes out. What did you think about last week’s episode? It was a lot to take in. Get ready because tonight’s episode was directed by Peter Weller and written by Kurt Sutter and Roberto Patino. “Los Fantasmas” – Pressure mounts on Jax as the sins of his club and family pull him in different directions.
After what transpired between Tara and Gemma (Katey Sagal), Jax (Charlie Hunnam) really has some difficult decisions to make. Some battles are never to be won. No matter how you spin this situation it’s not right. Jax and Tara are so deep in the madness that they’ve forgotten the one thing that means everything. Jax betrayed Tara with his body but she betrayed him with her soul. How the hell do you think this story is going to end?
Will Gemma plead her case? Who do you think would believe her? Gemma may be a lot of things but stupid certainly is not one of them. Some things never change and this episode clearly dictates that.
Throughout everything that has been going on, Jax has very few people around him that speak the truth more than Bobby (Mark Boone Junior) and Chibs (Tommy Flanagan); even if he doesn’t hear their words. It’s great to have Bobby back.
Tyne Patterson (CCH Pounder) wants some answers and she wants them now. Will Nero (Jimmy Smits) turn on the club? How many times have we been down this road? I have a feeling that Patterson plays a lot of Monopoly in her free time.
There are so many complicated situations taking place that you have to wonder how the hell are any of these people going to make it out alive?
If you saw the preview you know that Wayne Unser (Dayton Callie) is questioning what Tara has become. Poor Wayne. He always seems to find himself smack in the middle of every horrible situation. He just never turns his back on people in need. You have to respect him for that. Unser speaks some very wise words.
Jax makes a very special acknowledgement tonight. He hasn’t had an easy time, but if he starts letting the right compass lead him around he may have a fighting chance at survival.
As we have already learned, Charles Barosky (Peter Weller) doesn’t take too kindly to threats. Say what you will but Barosky is one smooth talker. Let’s just hope that he doesn’t need a paper cup. Please, don’t let it come to that because that’s just wrong.
Bobby really takes one for the team. He’s overwhelmed but still manages to push through. I love Bobby. His loyalty has been tested and confirmed. He wants what’s best for everyone. He doesn’t have a personal agenda.
It was nice to see the lovely Venus Van Dam (Walton Goggins) for a couple of weeks. With all the drama in her life Kurt could very well base a whole show around her. I would gladly watch the Venus and Tig hour. Walton does a phenomenal job bringing Venus to life.
Tonight’s episode features a lot of uncomfortable encounters. You’ll really feel your skin crawl. Some of the words that are spoken will break your heart. Some things never change. Do not miss tonight’s extended episode of Sons of Anarchy on FX.
Sons of Anarchy airs Tuesday nights at 10 on FX.
