Sons of Anarchy Recap: Eye for an Eye

Sons of Anarchy Season 7 Episode 7

Anytime you’re watching Sons of Anarchy — especially this final, gruesome season — you’ve got to prepare yourself for a few casualties. It’s just par for the course with the FX drama, which has racked up an impressive body count in the past six episodes alone.

But there are some Sons characters you just hope will never be in the line of fire, and when they are, it’s all you can do to remember that this is a work of fiction.

This week, I’m of course talking about Bobby, who found himself caught in the crosshairs of an outraged August Marks. And while we can assume that Bobby isn’t dead, the brutal removal of his eyeball via Marks’ security team confirms what we already knew: that even SAMCRO’s best-laid plans have their consequences.

Still, Bobby’s unfortunate encounter with Marks’ crew was just one of a few big highlights in Tuesday’s episode. While you recover from the hour’s devastating final minutes, let’s go over the highlights of “Greensleeves”:

BAD MARKS | As they carry out the next phase of Operation Take Down August Marks, SAMCRO turns to Leticia and Grant, the wife and stepson of dearly departed Pastor Jonathan Haddem. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough for Leticia to sign the paperwork that moved Marks’ government housing project along. Now, the club needs her and Grant to sign a statement saying Marks forced them to file that paperwork — and in order to get them on board with the idea, Jax lies that Haddem was killed by Marks, who then buried Haddem’s body at a Pope construction site. In return, SAMCRO agrees to take care of a pimp named Greensleeves, who has been blackmailing Haddem’s family with cell phone footage of the pastor spending inappropriate time with “very young men” at his lake house. (I legitimately shuddered at the thought.)

The club also offers to take Grant and Leticia to their cabin a few hours away, where Gemma can help wean Leticia off the drugs she’s been using. But more on that in a minute.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX? | In the meantime, Jax and Chibs enlist Nero’s help to find Greensleeves, who is all kinds of skeezy. Case in point: He sweet-talks his prostitutes with lines like, “Who puts the oh in ‘ho’?” How charming! Greensleeves manages to escape the first time he’s confronted by Jax & Co., but they soon track him down at his bachelor pad after his best girl, Winsome, offers up his location. (In return for the intel, Winsome’s getting a full-time gig at Diosa, and probably a friends-with-benefits relationship with Jax, if their immediate chemistry is any indication.) It’s not long before Jax and Chibs track down Greensleeves, collect the incriminating cell phone footage and promptly send Greensleeves straight through a glass window. So far, everything’s going according to plan…

Sons of Anarchy Season 7 Episode 7…which means everything is about to fall apart, naturally. Jax and Chibs next meet with Tyler of the One-Niners, handing over Leticia and Grant’s signed statement and photos of Haddem’s body buried at Pope’s construction site (courtesy of SAMCRO). Now, all they can do is wait until nightfall, when SAMCRO and the Mayans will meet with Marks and his men. But Marks decides to strike while the iron is hot: While Bobby is making a solo trip up to SAMCRO’s cabin, to ensure everything is going well with Haddem’s family, he gets run off the road by Marks’ security team, and he can’t get away from the men fast enough. That night, after Marks is an hour late to his meeting with SAMCRO, the club instead gets a visit from Moses Cartwright, head of Marks’ security team, who delivers a package (and a cryptic remark about the importance of brotherhood) to Jax. Inside the box, the club finds Bobby’s “Redwood Original” patches, taken from his cut, along with a video of Marks’ men removing one of Bobby’s eyeballs right out of his head — an eyeball that now rests in SAMCRO’s possession. And if it doesn’t break your heart to watch Bobby get tortured, surely it ruins you to see SAMCRO sit in stunned silence, with Chibs barely keeping it together.

LOST IN TRANSLATION | But let’s get back to SAMCRO’s cabin. After Jax offers Leticia and Grant a safe place to say, he tells Happy and Ratboy to retrieve Gemma and get her to the cabin for rehab purposes. But when Gemma finds out where she’s being taken, she’s visibly shaken, certain that she’s going to the cabin so Jax can punish her for the many sins she’s committed. When the boys stop at Gemma’s house so she can pack up a few things, she grabs her gun, then spends a few moments with Thomas, “the only one that really needs to know.” Within seconds, Gemma is sobbing an apology to her grandson, insisting that Tara’s murder was an accident — and right at that moment, Abel (who’s home early from school due to anger issues that we all saw coming) overhears his grandma’s confession from the doorway. That thump you just heard? It was my jaw hitting the floor.

Before she leaves, Gemma implores Wendy to get Nero to the cabin to help her. Meanwhile, Unser also gets a frantic call from Wendy, which he relays to the Sons, mentioning how freaked-out Gemma is that she’s headed to the cabin. (That’s why Jax sends Bobby to check up on things… and we all know how that works out. Sob.) Once she’s at the cabin, Gemma keeps her gun close… but she soon realizes that she really is there to help out with mother-son club business. Nero arrives a while later, but Gemma’s no longer in the frazzled state she once was. Bullet: dodged. At least until Abel spills the beans.

Elsewhere in the hour:

* Desperate to get back in SAMCRO’s good graces, Juice intentionally gets arrested by the California Highway Patrol, which sets in motion a long-term plan to kill Lin while he’s in county jail. All it takes is a little conspiring with Ron Tully’s men, which kicks off near the end of the hour. The only problem? When Unser informs Jax and the boys about Juice’s arrest, he can tell they were involved in the ordeal — and they’re using Juice to pull off something big. (And so, so misguided.)

* Hoping to get out of the street-war lifestyle sooner rather than later, Nero tells Gemma that he plans to sell his share of Diosa to Jax, before taking over his uncle’s farm far away from SAMCRO’s business. When he asks Gemma to come with him, grandsons and all, he breaks down thinking about all the “bad s—t” in Charming that they could potentially escape. Major props to Jimmy Smits and Katey Sagal in this scene, who seem to recognize all their past sins even as they’re hoping for a better life. (“We deserve something better than this,” Nero insists. “Do we?” Gemma responds, in an unexpected and poignant moment of self-awareness.) Later, Nero tells Jax about his plans to get out, but Jax tries to assure Nero that the conflict on the streets is nearly done. (Nope!)

* Unser informs Jax that Officer Eglee is now awake — but she’s only spilling to Unser about who was really there on the day she was shot. As long as Jax can promise that the Aryan Brotherhood won’t come after her, Eglee will keep her lips sealed about SAMCRO’s presence at the incident. (Anyone else have a bad feeling about this?)

OK, your turn. What did you think of Tuesday’s episode? Did you get a little choked up at Jax’s monologue about SAMCRO’s unflinching loyalty? (Especially given Bobby’s fate at the end of the hour?) Hit the comments with your thoughts.

    Oh my freaking God! Abel hearing Gemma! Idk what the heck is gonna happen with that. Idk if I’m excited that someone else knows or if I’m annoyed that it had to be one of the kids. I can’t wait to see what happens with that. And Bobby Elvis! I’m happy he’s still alive because I didn’t want him to die, but Jesus. They took his freaking eye. I started crying until next week’s preview revealed that he was still alive. I’ve said this before, but the Sons are walking around causing destruction like they’re invincible. They are not! Some, if not all of them, will pay the price for their cockiness and for their recklessness. I wasn’t expecting August Marks to go down without a fight. I’m not expecting Lin to go down without one, either. The Sons better count down the days because everything’s gonna come back and bite them in the butt. And please let Jax find out about Gemma soon! I’m dying. This season is killing me.

    • Molly says:

      That was my thought too, like why couldn’t Wendy hear her confession. But to be quite honest the adults on this show are just dumb, they would go into protect Gemma mode, Abel is a child he won’t be trying to protect grandma

      • Jax&Juice's Girl says:

        If Abel tells Jax he would BELIEVE him over anybody else when that issue comes to light.

        • mary says:

          Jax is never there for Abel. Can’t see him telling him much of anything. It is sad that we haven’t seen more of a grieving Jax. just sayin…it would make him more human!

          • Ann McDonald says:

            I totally agree I thought we would get at least a few poignant flashbacks or a memorial for Tara but noooo… Stutter won’t even let Jax be that human. Simply turned him into a killing machine.

        • Paul says:

          Abel will kill Gemma in retribution for his mothers death in the finale. That is why they showed Abel trying to protect his little brother. Abel wants to be like his dad and he heard his dad say “I am responsible and protect all these people”. Continuing the screwed up mentality of the next generation of bikers.

          • Sharon Casey Harris says:

            I agree. I believe Abel is going to be the one to kill Gemma.

          • Ann McDonald says:

            I’ve been thinking it forever about Abel shooting someone with Grandma’s gun.

          • DeJa says:

            Yaaaaassssssss!!! And here is Gemma trying her darndest to do any and everything for these kids! Yes…I do see that happening!!! THANKS FOR THE CLARITY!

          • Lda says:

            First thing I thought when Abel heard her was that he would find a gun laying around (or in Gemma’s purse) and shoot her. It fits with his mental state and Gemma”s fixation on controlling the boys’ lives. It also creates a double anguish for Jax.

      • the girl says:

        Wendy would mess around and get herself killed with some info like that, so it’s better she didn’t overhear Gemma’s confession. I am still holding out hope that the end sees Wendy, Nero, Thomas, Abel, and Nero’s son headed for the farm, getting the heck outta Charming, maybe even taking Unser with them. And if Chibs is still alive somewhere, I will consider that to be a good day.

      • df52 says:

        I think that Gemma was counting on the fact that no adults were in the vicinity of the room at the time, but didn’t consider that Abel could walk into the room / overhear…

    • Paul says:

      Abel in the series finale is gonna get a gun and shoot Gemma. He is gonna enact revenge for his mother even at his young age. Thus starting the next generation of messed up screwed up bikers.

    • dman6015 says:

      OMFG – You need to get a life!

    • MrsJaxTeller says:

      Thank god Bobby’s alive because he can’t be one of the Sons who die. Juice has to go and go soon and painfully. I was stunned by the scene where Abel hears Gemma’s confession to baby Thomas but no way is he killing her. Sutter’s not that crazy (I don’t think). But Gemma has to pay and pay big because she was an accomplice in JT’s death and she killed Tara.

      • jake says:

        I dont think Juice gets killed. He constantly defies the odds, and even though he’s done some dumb things he’ll do anything for the MC, including suicide rather then living without a cut.

    • rachelle says:

      I know a lot of people are speculating that Abel will kill Gemma, but I do NOT want that! I want the satisfaction of Jax finding out who Gemma is before she dies, confronting her with the pain and anger she’s put him through, the Apocalypse that she’s started in Charming. She doesn’t deserve to have Abel just put her out of her misery. Tara’s death was so brutal and so unfair. All she ever did was love her children and put her life on the line for them. Gemma’s done so much more at this point than just murder Tara. She’s caused so many more deaths and will continue to do so well past when she’s find out, I’m sure. All the mayhem from this season is on her head. She needs to be found out, confronted with what she’s caused and made to suffer for it. Abel just needs to snitch to the right person!

      I’m still butthurt over Opie. Like waaaaaay butthurt. Bobby Elvis is another one of my faves, but I’ve reconciled myself from the beginning with the possibility that everyone will die. So, I’ll be sad when he dies, but it won’t catch me as off guard as Opie’s death did.

    • kat martinez says:

      yeah gemma needs to pay for killing tara.i loved her.

    • Shawn says:

      I honestly think Abel is going to kill Gemma!! Im not sure but as creepy as he has been acting and with him hearing Gemma tell Thomas…I just get the feeling that he’s gonna do it. She will be found out and Im pretty confident she is gonna die. I think it’d be alot more dramatic if Jax did it. But I think she’s gna die before he gets a chance to

    • Heather White says:

      I’ve wanted to see her get hers for awhile… And this dragging it out crap sucks! But it is kind of nice watching her be scared!I think Abel is going to confront grandma Gemma….

  2. Jax&Juice's Girl says:

    HOLY SH*T! man, I think Marks’ A-hole people are going to kill Bobby he’s going be the 2nd and last member they’re gonna lose (this season) …….WHY BOBBY! DAMN U SUTTER!

    Anyways Abel now knows the truth about grandma dearest killing mommy he has TELL Jax or he might tell wack ass Wendy. As for Juice I say he’s going to kill off Lin since he’s really desperate to get back w/the MC. Juicy is a ticking time bomb he better do it if NOT Tully is going after him.

  3. Lady K says:

    INTENSE episode….major props to Kurt Sutter for having Abel overhear “Grandma Gemma’s” confession of murdering Tara….it is going to be very, very interesting to see how that plays out….I don’t think we have seen the end of angry, protective Abel….it is going to be interesting to see what happens next time Gemma tries to get near Thomas in Abel’s presence. There is something I would love someone to ask Sutter. It has been bugging me for several years: Jax has the tomb tattoo on his right forearm with JT’s name on it at the top. Then there is lots of space underneath it. Why has he not added Opie’s, Piney’s, and Tara’s names to it? He wears a patch in memory of Opie, but wouldn’t add his name to the gravestone tattoo on his arm? For that matter, why does Jax not have Tara’s name tattooed somewhere? We are meant to believe he got a prison tattoo with Thomas’s name on it, but nowhere does he have the love of his life’s name tattooed on his body? Especially now that she is dead? Really?

    • the girl says:

      When has he had time to get a tattoo since Tara’s died?

    • Tee says:

      Just my opinion (from the characters standpoint not sutter’s) wouldn’t that be him accepting it? like TRULY accepting that she’s gone. I think Jax is going thru the stages of grief all out of order. the night he found her lying there & got locked up for it was kind of the breakdown, he jumped straight into the “depression” stage and then he bounced back to anger. And ever since he hit ANGER he’s stayed there. Personally i think him not seeing Gemma as a culprit automatically or at least CONSIDERING it when the Chinese denied it is part of the DENIAL of it all. that’s just my interpretation though.

      I’m a big chicken & I’ve been relying on recaps ever since the first 2 episodes. I’m so not looking forward to seeing Hamlet’s end.

    • Aimee says:

      I’m with you on the whole “where is Tara’s tattoo” or better yet, where is the speech about losing the love of your life? We have heard everything BUT his sadness over losing Tara. It’s all anger. It’s so tough to watch at times because the Jax we once knew was very romantic and devoted to Tara. I miss her on the show so much.

      • Paul says:

        Being romantic or sentimental is not a biker trait. Unless it is about your club that your being sentimental. But woman are just kinda thought as property in that life. Now even if Jax was romantic and didnt feel that Tara was just his property, he wouldn’t be talking about that stuff with the other members of SAMCRO. This is a biker based show that revolves around violence.

        But I truly think Jax will end up hooking up with Wendy again rather than this new winsome chick. But I dont think Jax survives the series. I am betting he dies defending the club to pay for his sins. And Gemma I bet will die. I think Abel will kill her for killing his mother.

    • sonsofanarchyfan says:

      Thomas is also Jax’s brother’s name that died. Or did you forget that? Tara named their son after Jax’s brother Thomas who died at a young age. I’m pretty sure that’s why Jax has the name Thomas tattooed on him. I’m sure he had that before Thomas (his son) was even born.

    • sonsofanarchyfan says:

      Thomas is also his brother’s name that died when he was a kid. So that is the reason why Jax has the name Thomas tattooed on him. For his brother and his son

  4. the girl says:

    Juice is becoming the new Otto.

    • Jax&Juice's Girl says:

      I feel like Bobby right now is the new Otto (the eye patch)….. for now.

      • the girl says:

        I’m thinking more about the role Juice is playing, being in jail and putting in work on behalf of the club. Assuming after he kills Lin, he’s going to STAY in jail longer, and at that point the club just keeps using him to get things done on the inside… that’s how you become Otto.

    • Paul says:

      Yep he is. And my bet is he will die a very painful death in prison before or after killing Lin.

  5. Stormie says:

    Poor Abel that little boy has experienced so much pain and no one around cares. I think he’s going to act out even more now. It will have to get bad enough where Jax remembers he has kids and talks to Abel. The homeless lady in the first season said Abel will save the sons. He knows the truth of his mother’s murder and I can’t wait for him to drop the house on that hag.

    • Paul says:

      Abel will kill her to get revenge for his mothers death. He protects his family as Abel said in the previous episode.

      • suzanne says:

        I can’t wait to see that episode! That little kid is by far the worst child actor I’ve ever seen……He is twins… and one is much better than the other. I hope they choose the right one for the deed or I may end up laughing!

    • kat martinez says:

      yep right on!!!

  6. says:

    My brother recommended I may like this web site. He used to be entirely right.
    This post truly made my day. You cann’t believe simply how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!

  7. James D says:

    Seriously Sutter it had to be Bobby gosh darn it I was really hoping at least Bobby would survive the chaos I guess he is still alive but come on man. I’ve got to say Abel finding out about Gemma was pure genius. the question is will he kill Gemma or will he tell Wendy or Jax about what he heard, my guess is it will be the former.

    • Debra says:

      I don’t think Sutter will have Abel do the killing. I think of all the people on this show, Sutter will save the children.

  8. Bwhit says:

    I think Abel was the best one on the show to hear that. Everyone else that may find out will have some reason not to tell Jax. How could he not believe his little boy? Why are all the adults not noticing that Abel is hurting deeply because his mom is gone? Gemma is to blame for all of this and the only thing I felt was more anger when she was telling Thomas.

  9. Toric says:

    I really really really really hope Jax doesn’t hook up with Winsome. It breaks my heart that he cheated on Tara so many times while she was ALIVE… don’t disrespect her memory (and her body is barely cold) by sticking it in another prostitute. Jesus. You were married to a beautiful doctor. Stop fooling around with porn stars and prostitutes!

    • Helen says:

      I was wondering why he was all smiles with her. It seemed so strange. I hope they don’t hook up but she is returning in Episode 10 – so they might have a one night stand. Hopefully he decides to visit Tara’s grave in the meantime. SMH.

    • Kar says:

      Cheating is what these guys do, they’re gun running outlaw bikers. If you wanted Jax playing house with Tara with a 9-5 desk job, this isn’t the show for you.

      • Bree says:

        No one said he had to be daddy house-husband. They’re sposed to have a strict honor code, and loyalty is sposed to be #1! One detail like that doesn’t mean it’s not the ‘show for you.’ Why go to that extreme, especially w/ all the death we’ve handled. Loyalty…..honor……..the code! They should be strong enough for marriage.

    • Bree says:

      I completely agree, and thank you for saying that!!!!!!! I’ll be furious if that happens, even though it probably will. He kept doing it while she was still alive, he has even less self-control now……GRRRR!!!

      • Paul says:

        Winsome is the new Tara. She and Jax will totally hook up for the last couple episodes that are left in the series. I am betting Jax dies in the series finale in the name of SAMCRO. He will die defending his brothers.

        • Laurie says:

          Negative. No one is the new Tara. She’s some common whore – literally. And she’s only back for one episode and probably has 5 minutes screen time like this episode.

          • Paul says:

            I hated Tara anyway because she betrayed Jax and the club. She took Jax’s kids and ran away with them. You dont just take a man’s kids away.

          • abz says:

            @Paul: what a simplistic and immature way at look at the entire Tara situation from last season.
            If anything Jax deserved to have his kids taken away. He was a poor father, surrounding his kids in a dangerous environment. Tara may not have went about things in the best way but she was desperate and desperate people do desperate things. Those kids were almost bombed to death last season. Tara was the only one in that entire environment who TRULY gave a damn about the welfare of those kids.
            There is no “she betrayed the club so she’s an awful woman”, Those children and their welfare come before the club and their illegal, dangerous dealings and she at least tried to get them out of the life their father kept failing miserably at doing. She signed up to be a biker’s wife because she loved Jax, but Tara wasn’t just any biker wife. She wasn’t like them. She has a mind of her own and she was educated and when she realized that Jax was failing at keeping his promise of keeping them safe she took matters into her own hands and tried to save them herself. Her intentions were admirable and she did not deserve that fate she got. Why don’t you think about that before you go against a woman who’s trying to keep her children safe?

        • Jax&Juice's Girl says:

          Hell Mutha F-in no! She is NOT the new Tara your outta your damn mind. If it comes to that then he’s an idiot (but won’t be surprise), what he needs to do is go VISIT her grave!

          • Sally says:

            I agree with ABZ’s comments 100%!!! Paul, how can you hate Tara who did nothing wrong except try and protect her children??

    • Booboo999 says:

      I don’t know if Jax was just lucky to have married Tara or if she was just plain dumb to marry him. Clearly, from an intellectual standpoint Tara was totally out of his league. What would a ganger talk about with a skilled surgeon at the breakfast table. I totally agree that he needs to stay away from the porn stars and prostitutes but guys like that don’t change.

  10. seth says:

    @rachel yeah, it shows bobby alive… but not out of marcs captivity. my only worry is that bobby will die. of all of the characters one of my favorite people has to get tortured.

  11. abz says:

    I don’t know about anyone else but I kind of found myself indifferent to what happened to Bobby. Sure it was a terrible thing but I’ve come to expect it, because Jax had it coming. If it wasn’t Bobby, it would have been another MC member. I can’t tell if the show is trying to make us feel sympathy for Jax through this ordeal because I don’t. Throughout his speech to the club all I did was roll my eyes because he’s so full of BS.
    Poor Abel. That kid is going to have a lifetime of psychological issues. Murdered mother, absentee father, psychopathic grandmother, pornstars, drug dealers, bombings, guns and death all around, and on top of that being babysat by a strange woman he barely knows. For a while now, I don’t think I’ve questioned the limits the show would go to, but they wouldn’t have Abel kill Gemma would they? It’s such an awful thought, but in the kid’s environment I’m sure he’d find access to a gun very easily and knowing this show, having Abel be the first to find out Gemma’s secret is probably going to lead to more than just him telling someone. I don’t why Wendy couldn’t have been the one to overhear. Maybe it’s because if Gemma knew Wendy overheard, she’d have no problem killing her whereas with Abel if she found out he knew, there’d be nothing she could do. She’s not gonna kill him.

    • Paul says:

      Abel will kill his own grandma Gemma. I guarantee it.

    • Spike says:

      Had the same reaction to Jax heartfelt speech at the table, I was eye-rolling a lot myself. Honestly, the blind devotion to the saintly Jax is kind of ridiculous. And yes, what a pathetic excuse for a father is Jax, especially in light of all the sanctimonius crap over the years reading (and then writing) the silly journals. So glad Jax is finally getting some comeuppance.

  12. Kait says:

    I wonder when all the stuff with Jury and that one gun and what I’m assuming was his son is going to come full circle. I get confused when they say Jarry and Jury, especially with some of the accents.
    I’m sad about Bobby, but now I know one interview with Sutter talking about eyeball gouging and details about how it looks and what it’s done with was about.
    The kid that plays Abel can take pretty good direction considering how absolutely creeped out by him I am. I keep thinking back to how I thought the kid in the school shooting looked like it could have been a little Jax, diary and all, and I hate to think about how terribly nurture or lack-thereof plays into a child’s choices.
    That commercial with a Jax/Gemma scene about Clay confused me for a minute.

    • Kait says:

      I’m also kind of nervous why Tyler and his crew that stayed loyal didn’t show up at that park meet and where the Grim Bastards were at this episode.

      • A.Rae says:

        Jax told the Niners not to come, because he’s not ready for Marks to know they are breaking away…

      • Debra says:

        Jax told Tyler not to show up because he doesn’t want August to be suspicious of the Niner’s loyalties to the MC. He said that he wants him to remain close to August at this point.

    • Spike says:

      I too am really interested in the revenge of Jury, but here’s what I’m concerned will happen: It will turn out that what compels Jury is not that Jax double crossed Jury and murdered his son for no good reason, but that it will all be about how Jury loves and adores Jax, and Jury’s sorrow about not being good enough for Jax. Kind of a bizarre abused spouse kind of thing. The whole deal of everybody worshipping the saintly Jax is kind of ridiculous.

      • firstroyal says:

        There was no double-cross. If that was Jury’s son, and it probably was, his death was on Jury. When introduced Jury said “Some guys he had previously worked with that he trusted” Not, hey I can trust him, he is my son! Being in the SOA I would have to assume Jury would KNOW, “Just guys I trust.” are redshirts that be killed if it was a benefit to the club.

        • Kait says:

          I still don’t get how he didn’t recognize Jury’s son or even maybe not even know that he had one, especially considering how close Jury and JT were

  13. Aundria Premo says:

    Bobby’s predicament is certainly sad… But I’m still reeling about poor Abel overhearing Granny’s confession!!

  14. John says:

    Abel might even kill Gemma. he is prone to violence.

    Amd Rachelle……… Jesus died in the first century AD…. ;)

    “And Bobby Elvis! I’m happy he’s still alive because I didn’t want him to die, but Jesus. “

  15. Al says:

    Im just a little confused.can someone enlighten me,was jax going to meet with august to tell him about the statement,or did marks find out that he had been set up with the body at his pope industry place or something? and was it because of this that he took poor bobby’s eyeball? Thanks

    • Paul says:

      Jax was just gonna blackmail August Marks. He had sent a copy of the statement and a pic of the body planted on popes property.

      August marks already has the statement, Tyler gave it to him. It’s hard to bare but I believe Bobby will die, the MC will receive body part after body part, we gotta remember that August marks is brutal, ruthless and now he’s pissed, he’s crosshairs are set on the MC. Something tells me this is only the begginning

  16. Lee says:

    Why do I get the felling that the one niners are setting up Jax and the both clubes

  17. Samantha says:

    I think that In the finale Jax will die at the hands of his son who is will try to avenge Tara’s murder and mistakenly kill his father. Gemma will be convicted of Tara’s murder and go to prison and Wendy will raise the boys.

  18. lola says:

    IN OTHER NEWS: If Jax is to hook up with anyone better be with that sassy hooker they picked up just from Greensleves. Better her than Wendy. I’d rather the series end with Jax having no woman in his life than for him to be with Wendy!

  19. Italia says:

    The series began with TAra saving Abel and it will end with Abel avenging her death. While grandma lays dying the ghost of TAra appears with her arm around ABels shoulder, recreating that famous picture. Jax walks in and ABel takes him out too for not doing his job, protecting people. Tara was the only person who ever put him first and right nowhe is on a downward spiral to hell.

  20. Italia says:

    The series began with Tara saving Abel and Abel will be the one who avenges her death. She is the only person who was always there for him. And while Gemma lies dying on the floor the ghost of Tara will appear with her arm around ABels shoulder,recreating that famous picture. Abel takes out Jax too for not doing his job, protecting people. He failed his mother over and over again.

  21. Pkcro says:

    I have informed Auggy Marks I am sidding with Samcro and will take back the west side of Oakland and alameda with Gary Payton, we will be gunning down any of marks men also taking their sculpts. This getting back the bagel trade in oaktown

  22. Breanna says:

    Wendy is the right person to raise those kids. She had to endure Tara always saying that ‘those are my boys’. She had no sympathy for Wendy’s situation. Wendy made mistakes, but don’t we all? She has paid her penance, and she deserves to raise her son. I think that now she appreciates her place as the rightful role as mother. There is no one better to raise those boys; Gemma is definitely not qualified to raise children!
    What Abel does after hearing Gemma confess to Thomas is anyone’s guess. That boy is already screwed up in the head. Whether he avenges Tara’s death, or tells Jax, he needs to know that Wendy is his real mother. It might help him psychologically to know the truth.

    • Laurie says:

      Endure? Um, she almost killed Abel – and had it not been for Tara – Abel would have probably died. Tara saved his life as a newborn and continued to take care of him while she was alive. Wendy owes her a lot. Tara was a great mother – who unlike every other person on the show – put her children above everything, including her own happiness. A big part of her self-loathing was her devotion to Jax and how much she loved him. But by Season 6, she realized she had to draw a line. No amount of love for that man was worth risking the safety of your children. Wendy has yet to actually raise a child – she has been playing babysitter for the 2 weeks since Tara passed. She isn’t the victim here. Tara should be the one who is alive.

      • Stormie says:

        I’m just laughing at oh Abel knowing Wendy is his bio mom will in any way help him. Tara was his mother in every way that matters. She was the one constant love that little boy had. She’s gone and that pain will never lessen by telling him oh well she didn’t birth you. Tara was the first person to choose Abel. Wendy chose drugs over him,his father didn’t want him and neither did his grandmother.

        Just wondering if those same people would think Wendy should ever call herself Thomas’s mother if she raised him.

        • Jax&Juice's Girl says:

          HA! He doesn’t need know about Wendy which i hope won’t come up. Tara will always be his mom regardless flesh and blood OR not he knows she loved him very much.

  23. Imametsfan says:

    What everyone seems to be forgetting is that Abel spent a lot of time with both Unser and Chucky and last night Chucky told Gemma that he’s a good listener so if Abel is going to tell anyone it might be one of them. However, it would be poetic justice for Abel to kill Gemma all the while parroting her words that it was an accident that he killed her.

    Yje greatest show on planet earth pkeassssse dont end the show

  25. Booboo999 says:

    I often find myself torn up with shows like Sons of Anarchy and the Sopranos, etc. I love these shows, great entertainment but once I really start to feel sympathy for the characters I have to pinch myself and wake up to the reality that these motorcycle gangers and mobsters are engaged in all the scumbag evil things that cause problems in our society like prostitution, dealing H, selling guns, extortion, murder, and all that. Most are true psychopaths with money and power. Anyway, great show. I cannot believe the twists and turns we’ve been taken through since season 1. I will miss it when it ends………..

  26. Noelle says:

    Am I the only one who feels really bad for Gemma? She’s done a lot of awful things, but I just can’t help but feel sorry for her.

  27. Noelle says:

    Am I the only one who feels really bad for Gemma? She’s done a lot of awful things, but I just can’t help but feel sorry for her. It’s terrible and unforgivable that she killed Tara, but let’s not forget that they’ve all done terrible and unforgivable things.

    • Debra says:

      Noelle: I think that you may be the only one who feels really bad for Gemma. Yes; almost all of the adults on this show are drug and gun-dealing killers including Gemma. But her lying deceitful hateful spiteful manipulative ways make her more despicable than the others.

  28. Fried says:

    You better kill your grandma Abel, or she will kill you..

  29. nicole compton says:

    Hello!!!! Abel is going to tell his teacher ( Courtney Love)!! She has to fit it into the story line somewhere, at some point. We have seen her on one episode. You saw how Gemma acted towards the mom in the car honking at her, so did Love who also saw what a nut job Gemma is. I don’t know how it will all end, but Courtney Love has a part to play as Abel’s teacher????

    • Jax&Juice's Girl says:

      I forgot all about her I know in one of these articles (on this site) mentioned that she will play a role involving Abel. *Maybe this is the time he could tell his teacher but when he does WHO will she call in to TALK ABOUT IT?

  30. Noelle says:

  31. squatch says:

    Loved the episode.
    On the whole Juice angle, I think Marks made a deal/connection with Tully. That’s why Juice is in isolation and gets a visit from the AB dude at the end. Tully said previously that he only cares about the color green, as long as he can maintain the brand. and Juice isn’t exactly white…

    • Jax&Juice's Girl says:

      Actually it was Jax that told Tully that all he cares about is the color green. Tully told Jax that he doesn’t MIX race with BUSINESS.

  32. Jessica says:

    I don think it will be Bobby that goes because at this point it would be way to obvious a move. It will be someone we don’t expect and if will probably happen while they are trying to get Bobby back. Able is def going to go after grandma but I can’t see him being the one who causes her to take her last breath. Unser some how some way will help Juice.

  33. Kurt Michaels says:

    Abel questions Gemma about her claiming she killed his mother. Wendy overhears the exchange and confronts Gemma. For the good of the club and her relationship with Jax, Gemma justifies killing both Wendy and Abel. She makes it look like Wendy killed Abel and she in turn killed Wendy! Jax finds out about this and decides the evil must all end. He kills Gemma and them himself. “Fade to black….shows over”

  34. Creepy Rob Lowe says:

    I hate to spoil the ending but, Venus Van Dam will kill everyone but Abel and they will live happily ever after in San Francisco

  35. Dianna Koch says:

    Absolutely love Bobby, feel just as bad as when they killed off Opie, I thought they were leading up to Jemma killing Jax for the sake of the club, but not so sure now, thinking Abel may do the honors to Jemma, and so would start the next generation, gonna miss this show.

  36. Sandra says:

    Seeing the previews of the next show, I’m worried about Jax facing three men with a knife. I do not know what that was or what happens, but will be very upset if something happens to Jax. I’m really hopping for a few more years of SOA. It is a great show. Therefore, I don’t want Jax to kill Gamma, but she does need to be punished somehow. Let’s face it, she was protecting her family, she thought. All she knew at the time was that Tara was going to divorce Jax, take his sons and help send Jax and all of the SOA to prison. Tara had tried to set her up to turn Jax against her. She did not know Jax and Tara had worked things out. I liked Tara a lot but felt that she should have stood by her man always. Also, I hope Bobby makes it!

    • 928outlaws says:

      I don’t think anyone saw what was coming with Bobby. Oh well, will keep an eye out for the next episode.

    • Stormie says:

      This is there final season so there won’t be a few more years of it.

    • CloneXX says:

      This is the final season of SoA…that’s a definite. There is no chance of a few more years of the show…so anything can happen in this final season. Even though only one more club member will die, there are plenty of loved and well known non club members to bump off.

    • Debra says:

      Sutter seems determined to end the show this season. But he did talk about starting a show something like a “prequel” – taking place after the Vietnam war with John Teller and Piney establishing the MC club.

  37. Ann McDonald says:

    Anyone think Abel is gonna shoot himself playing with a gun or maybe even shoot Thomas? I’m waiting for something terrible to finally shake Jax up to all this violence in his son’s lives. Geez

    • Jax&Juice's Girl says:

      After seeing the promo last night, Gemma looked shocked/crying when she was pulling the covers off a bed (maybe ABEL’S) so who knows but it looks kind of bad.

  38. Bernard Sussman says:

    As the episode came to an end, we had Katey Sagal herself singing the lyrics to Greensleeves, a poignant little tune, perhaps appropriate because the smarmy pimp beaten and murdered about ten minutes previous used the handle “Greensleeves”.

  39. mel says:

    Yeah I feel sorry for Gemma. I think Tara was in the wrong last year setting her up and all. She was never going to save those boys from their fate. I really thought jax was going to kill Tara last season. When they hugged in the motel I figured a knife in the heart was coming. I still think he knows Gemma did it. He just wants control of the guns again.

  40. Ann McDonald says:

    The drug addict will be the last one standing.

  41. Matt says:

    When Jax and the boys pin down Marks,he is going to let Bobby take both his eyes I hope. Gemma caused all this. Jax might let her live and make her leave town cuz that might be worse than death, but who knows.

  42. Bob says:

    Gemma needs to be found out & killed for her Treachery & 1,000 other things! Marks & his whole crew need to die also for what they did to Bobby! Nero is a wimp! Jax needs to go to Ireland with his Sons & the Club & find some nice Irish girls & live Happily ever after!

  43. Dorothy says:

    I think Thomas will kill Gemma. And Max will take the blame.Wendy and Nero will take the kids to raise for Max’s to gt them far away from Charming.To keep his promise to Tara.

  44. Dorothy says:

    I think Thomas will kill Gemma. And Jax will take the blame.Wendy and Nero will take the kids to raise for Jax’s to gt them far away from Charming.To keep his promise to Tara.

  45. Poolshark says:

    One of two things is going to happen. Either Abel will kill himself, or he will kill Gemma… There is always the Hamlet ending as well Juice and Jax shoot each other and Gemma kills herself

  46. Hannah says:

    Honestly, with that eerie music and seeing that box I was sooo relieved it was just an eye, I was playing out the movie “Seven” in my mind….

  47. kat martinez says:

    i love sons and i am thinking that abel is going to spill the beans to jax or im thinking maybe wendy about his mom and gramma,hope juice doesnt dieand i dont think Bobby is dead.cant wait till next tues!

  48. Susan says:

    Maybe Abel will hit Gemma on the head with his hammer!!!

    • Shawn says:

      That was my thought. I’ve noticed they bring things back and him “protecting” his brother with his hammer seemed insignificant enough that it could come back because people wouldn’t expect that. That or Gemma’s own gun. I think the hammer would be better though.

  49. monika says:

    Gemma is going to leave her gun in her open purse, Able will see and take it. Gemma will be doing up the dishes in the sink where she killed Tara, Abel will shoot her , just as Jax is coming through the door…he runs to his mother’s side and yells at Able to put gun down.Abel says no, then tell Jax what he overheard, Gemma confesses and he kills her
