Sons of Anarchy Season 5 Review “Orca Shrugged” – Hookers + Blackmail = Hilarity

Every so often Sons of Anarchy puts the hardcore drama to one side and gives us an episode that borders on out and out dramedy. ‘Orca Shrugged’ is definitely one of these episodes. From the completely gratuitous fight between Jax and Galen (who then shoots up the boys’ bikes) to the blackmail plot, this episode seemed to release all the humour that had been hoarded in the last 4+ episodes.

Jax devises a plan to win the mayor over by finding the one vote needed for him to win a council vote on the construction of Charming Heights. How? They drug an obese town council board member, strip him off, dress him in tassels and leather, and then hire a transgender prostitute called Venus van Dam to ride him — all so they can blackmail him with the pics.
