Pretty fucked up!

Valini watched it with me and at the end she had to quit watching and told me that I was "no longer allowed" to watch that violence.

I told her it was my favorite show!

:D

The scene with Tig's daughter was too much for me. I was actually disturbed by it and TV doesn't usually have that effect on me.

Going to have to rewatch it. There was so much stuff. Did I miss the guy with the fake foot/leg earlier in the episode. I know he was one of the 2 or 3 Nomads they voted in. Just don't Remember seeing a fake leg before the last scene with Unser.

Also, I don't recall the killing of pope's daughter. Was that one of the last episodes of last season?

No Tig killed Pope's daughter the episode after Clay got shot. If you'll remember they blamed the Niners and Leroy for the shooting as to protect Opie. Well Tigs loyalty to Clay caused him to go after Leroy and he tried to run him over with a car but hit Leroy's girlfriend(popes daughter) instead.

They didn't make a big deal of the guy having a prosthetic leg in the meeting room. Just called him Peg and he put his shoe up on the prospect. Would have never thought twice about it and very easy to gloss over. Took that guy on shaggy pointing it out for me to been remember it, but it was the same shoe they showed during the Unser attack that he had one when he put it up on the prospects shoulder.

I think I might have missed last seasons finale (daughter or wife might have accidentally erased it). I remember clay getting shot. I do not remember jax going to the hospital to poison Clay or whatever. I don't remember the pope's daughter thing or opie leaving either.

Watched it on the DVR last night and WOW! :shock:

Jimmy Smits pounding Gemma's back side was one I did not see coming.

The body parts/ burn pit was a bit scintillating, if not overdramatic.

Clay coming clean definitely has an underlying motive!

Yeah, can't believe they killed off Opie.

Wonder where this is going now? I thought they were setting up a season long show down with the Niners, but now it looks as if they are setting up some kind of showdown with these Nomads that just affiliated, which I believe are working for Clay.

BTW, I still HATE Jemma!

Yep... Nomads are working for Clay. They and he are going to be dealt with.

The real showdown that I'm looking forward to is that Pope has to die.

I mean this show gets more messed up each week.

I had to tell Valini to leave the room whenever Opie went into the box.

That combined with Tig's daughter getting burned.... I'm not sure I like this much over the top stuff.

Yeah great episode. Still not understanding the Clay angle yet. I know it has to do with him trying to get power back, but not understanding his method yet.

I fear we're headed towards Clay & Gemma vs Jax & Tara for control of the club which I'd definitely be down on.

I think Clay's angle was to try and pin the home invasions on Pope's people and incite a war with them that will ultimate sour the gang on Jax's leadership, but killing whats-his-name's wife screwed those plans up. The DNA will point to one of the Nomads at which point Clay will probably turn on them to save his own ass.

Also, the violence is just too much for me this season. I can handle violence. Overly gory things don't really bother me. I just feel like the show is being gruesome for the sake of being gruesome. Nero's half-sister-crazy-lady offing herself and Tig shooting the jail guy's wife in cold blood were unnecessary. Then again, I hate Tig and just want him to die.

I can see that angle, but Clay doesnt have the right people in his corner to pull that off. After all that has happened he'll never get Tig, Bobby, and Jibs(sp?) back in his corner.

I think Chibbs and Bobby will do what they think is best for the club. Bobby was very against the drug business to begin with and now Jax is getting in deeper with Pope so Bobby won't be happy with that. Chibbs is a wild card.

I don't mind the violence. It makes the show more real IMO. FX brings the violence pretty strong with SOA and American horror story.

I can't wait till both Clay and Gemma get their violent demise. Looks like the exsheriff is going to meet his end very soon.

Clay doesn't know he doesn't have chibbs. That's why jax saved him from being in jail. He saw the showdown with clay coming and knew he needed him to have the numbers.

So many things at play after last night. Usually you can see something coming, but I really have no idea where this is going now.

I know there is no way they kill her off, but I'm to the point of actively cheering for Gemma to get killed every week. I FUCKING hate her. I really hope she is dead in that ditch, but I know better.

Great season ender with some great twist.

I fucking despise Gemma. I hope Jax finds out her evil ways and burns her ass alive.
