I wasn’t too hot over the last episode of season 4 of Sons of Anarchy, if I’m honest. I felt like they spent the entire episode setting things up for later, which they could have done with quick scenes in the other episodes and not wasted a whole hour stirring drama that wasn’t going to come to the surface until later episodes.
Piney’s still being a spoil sport and needs to get his ass in line. He’s trying to pull an end around on Clay by telling Gemma that they are going to be muling drugs for the cartels, hoping that Gemma would find a way to persuade Clay to stay away from it. Now he’s carrying on about the letters and trying to confront Clay about it, making a blatant threat.
I have a feeling Clay’s going to break his foot off in Piney’s ass if this keeps up. Piney says he’s got insurance, though.
Gemma, who is getting to the point that I want to slap her, just can’t keep her nose out of shit. Now she’s maneuvering to get Tara on some council to stop development on the land of some park she’s all head over heels about for some reason.
Now Clay is trying to sort out the Piney business and all of a sudden, Gemma doesn’t want to have anything to do with getting involved in other people’s stuff…At least not as long as Clay’s aware. She doesn’t seem to have any problem sneaking around behind his back, though.
So now the hunt for the letters is on, Opie’s tripping because his wife is basically a whore OMG DAVID HASSELHOFF!!
Yeah, you heard me.
The Assistant U.S. Attorney is getting shadier, every day…He went to the jail and posed as the new sheriff, telling Otto that Bobby Elvis was sleeping with and killed Luanne. Of course, this has Otto pissed off and he’s ready to start some shit so he calls Gemma and tells her about it. MORE GEMMA DRAMA!
Now the Sons are having a word with old Georgie. That will lead to some more business dealings in Charming.
At least episode 5 is a little better. Some of the drama starts getting dealt with and a loose end or two gets tied off. Of course that means that half a dozen more ends have come loose.
And, of course, there’s the business of the cops flipping Juice by threatening to tell the club he’s part black but we’re going to have to see where that goes.
DAVID HASSELHOFF SAID COCK! My god I feel dirty.
Oh, yeah…Juice. If he flips, I’m going to be pissed.
So, I don’t know what the fuck is going on. I almost feel like SOA has jumped the shark but I’m going to have faith and give it some time. Hopefully the writers can pull this one out. It’s too early for it to die.
