  • I gave this episode an A. There’s so much I wanted to say, but couldn’t, so I haven’t commented on the recap or the interview with the actors. Just because the episode didn’t end the way I’d like or someone suffered a fate they didn’t deserve doesn’t mean the episode wasn’t brilliant. I’ve been seeing too many people complaining about the show, saying it sucks because of the way the episode played out. They need to grow up. The show plays out like real life. In real life, people who don’t deserve it get hurt and evil people get away with murder… for now anyway.

    • I don’t understand your comment telling people to grow up. Yes, these things happen in real life- and in real life, people don’t say “oh well, its life and that’s the way the world works”. No, people are mad, heartbroken and determined to see justice. Just the way people feel after watching the SOA finale. I agree that its silly to expect a happy ending for any character- its just not going to happen. But feeling depressed and wanting to see justice are all completely normal things to feel as far as I’m concerned. Some may take it too far but I understand the immediate feelings after such a powerful finale.

  • Wow. I am so surprised that this site even acknowledged the SOA finale ratings. This site only ever talks about Masters of Sex and Homeland and the rest be damned. I am in total shock.

    • Do you mean just posting something about its ratings, or posting about the show in general? There’s been a lot of stories about SOA this season (not sure about last year) so I assume you’re talking about ratings?

  • I don’t think that Tara should of been killed off, I was rooting for Jax and Tara but now the truth must come out and Gemma must be killed!

  • is anyone else super PO’d at Unser? He told Gemma that Tara made a deal when he obviously didn’t know anything about what was going on! Gemma may have done the actual killing, but I blame Unser for starting that ball rolling.

    • I’m very upset with Unser! I feel the same way as you. He’s the typical busy body though; always talking and don’t know the truth.

    • When he walked in the ice cream shop and said, “I know some of what’s going on.” I said,”you don’t know anything about what’s going on.”

    • That scene was interesting because when this continues to play next season I am sure (almost) that Unser will figure out what Gemma did. And remember what he told her and how shell shocked she was that night. But Unser is too much in love with Gemma (gag) to turn her in.
