      Someone had to go, and its what pope says.



      "This is what turns players into Kings."



      Revenge will follow, but not yet. Very curious how this will all turn out.

      It was an interesting episode. Although, I liked the interplay of characters- the actual actions of Jax do not show him to have become a harder and better leader- but in the contrary- puckish and weak. SOA should have had someone waiting outside the prison for Pope when he returned to the Jail to get his answer from Jax's, and taken the opportunity to dispose of him. Besides, the reputation of the club must be such that the guards would not dare to do- what they did -even with Pope supposedly protection. And if it did happen then , any self-respecting club must not only get rid of the main-guard but the other four guards and the inmates that participated in Ope's death also- if not their Club's Reputation is worthless. The whole point of flying colors is that keeps gang members safe from police and correction officers' abuse- fear that there is more behind the particular individual/perp. Colors are not entirely for other gangs but in a large part for government authorities and civilian intimidation. Besides, SOA have CIA connections so why not use that to negate Pope? It seems that - the writers are stuck in a white middle class mindset- of musical biker gangs (westside story)- So I was expecting a "Sharks Ballad" after Ope's deathmoreless
    • One of the best

      I can't understand the low ratings and bad reviews for this episode. To me, this is one of the best episodes of the whole series. The good guy can't always win and sometimes popular characters will be killed off to further the overall story. I am not happy Opie was killed. He was my favourite too, but I understand why he had to go. Try to have an open mind.
