A review of tonight's "Sons of Anarchy" coming up just as soon as I have a French bulldog named Ramon... 

"Benefit of an end date. Nothing more dangerous than a guy who knows he's already dead." -Clay

We are watching one of two things these last few weeks on "Sons of Anarchy." Either we're seeing the methodical, inexorable journey towards someone putting a bullet in Clay Morrow, or we're being set up for Clay to improbably escape the combined vengeance of Opie, Gemma, Wayne, Jax, Bobby and all the other people he's betrayed, and remain an active, important member of SAMCRO.

Obviously, there's a lot of territory between those extremes - including Clay getting swept up in Potter's RICO case and landing in prison before Opie and company can kill him - but my gut now tells me it's one or the other.
