    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 death
