If you’ve been reading my Sons of Anarchy reviews this season, you’ll know that I’ve been pretty hard on the show. In keeping with that, I’ll start this review by saying that I miss the old theme song a hell of a lot. Why am I starting with that? Because that is the only thing I disliked about this episode.
We finally get some movement over in Ireland. While it could be argued that the plot has been moving along steadily for the past two weeks (and I’m glad there are differing viewpoints), for me, it felt slow. This week we got two dead members of SAMBEL, a close encounter with Jimmy O and an apparent lead in the search for Abel (though we know more than Jax, presently).
While I definitely don’t watch Sons of Anarchy for the violence, I find episodes like this week’s always bring something more to the table. Maybe the viewers’ emotion is heightened by the violence? Who knows. I’m still getting over Kyle Hobart’s tattoo removal in season 1.
The dispatching of Liam and McGee was well done and started tying up the loose ends in Ireland. Once the Sons find Abel – or not, see below – and figure out what to do about Jimmy, we’ll hopefully be well on our way back to Charming. (Special shout out to Happy’s look of utter glee during Liam’s torture.)
