Kurt Sutter is a twisted motherfucker, but let’s all give him a round of applause for his use of irony this season.
Gemma truly believes the only person Jax needs is his mother. She made that decision when she gave her blessing for John’s death and she made it again when she stabbed Tara’s neck with a fork. In some ways, Tara and Gemma have been doing the same thing this season, though Tara put her boys first, while Gemma’s main concern was herself.
Then we have Juice killing Eli as a scapegoat for all his twisted lies. Eli, who made him betray his club numerous times gets two shots to the chest. Juice then protects Gemma by taking anything that my incriminate her, though he forgets he’s betraying Jax, yet again.
Oh Nero, the last living person who can tell Jax how loving his mother is, please live so I can see the day she dies.
And so we have Jax, looking at his wife’s lifeless body on the floor of his kitchen and realizing he broke every single useless promise he had ever had the balls to make her. Jax may have redeemed himself during this episode, but please don’t keep your monster hidden next season. I hope you aren’t against killing your own mother.
