  • High hopes were dashed with this cluster of an episode!

    1.5
    I was really disappointed- the mish-mash of events and twists and turns started to look like an average high school play of a 'who-dun-it', with the shoot-out involving Emma almost being surreal. I was left saying 'oh please' repeatedly... I was left with the impression that the season is wrapping up and they wanted to tie up whatever loose ends where hanging out there any way they could no matter how obsurd. The acting is fine, with a great cast of actors, all top grade- it just was that the plot got too cheesy. For some reason, they are going to prolong the story line beyond realism- now with the body count reaching Baghdad proportions, you wonder when the militia is going to come in and take over... but no, everything is still being handled by the Charming PD...moreless
  • One of the best finales to a show I've ever seen.

    Sons of Anarchy is a show that keeps getting better and better. Usually a show starts to lag in the later seasons of a show (anything other than Season 1 in my book). So many shows just drop the ball after the first season. Sons of Anarchy is an exception.



    The episode was an intense ride from start to finish; continually making the audience wonder what would happen next. Weston's execution in a toilet stall, Half-Sack's murder, Gemma being set up for a life as an outlaw, and the kidnapping of Abel made the audience wish for more even after the episode was finished.



    I am excited for the next season that is coming up on the show. Kurt Sutter could take the show in many different directions, and I know that whatever he decides will be great for the show.



    These characters are integral to the show. Nobody has a bigger role than anyone else on the show. None of the characters are downplayed in anyway. Even when the focus tends to be more towards Jax and Clay's rift during this season, all of the characters interact equally in this show. I cannot imagine the show without Bobby's level-headedness and Elvis impersonations, Tig's crazy ear-biting tactics, Opie's voyage to a recovering life after the death of his beloved Donna, Piney's bipolar behavior over his dedication to SAMCRO, Chibs' Irish accent and loyalty to the club, Juice's comedic routines, and most of all the love scenes that occur between Jax and Tara and Clay and Gemma.



    I used to believe that shows always get worse after the first season concludes. Sons of Anarchy is that one exception that I am willing to give out to a show that proved me wrong.moreless
  • This episode sees some revenge achieved, yet some people are yet to get their just desserts. Jacks baby being taken & Gemma being stitched up by the ATF detective keeps us wanting more. Even the police dynamics have come along way since the first episodemoreless

    i thought the final episode was brill. thoroughly enjoyed it. I can't wait to see the next series. the characters are well thought out and you believe every one of them. the violence is tastefully filmed. Tara fits well into the family and Gemma is portrayed in a strong but lovable way who's loyalty to friends and family is second to none. Jacks is still growing but brings a levelling to the dynamics of the group. The storyline was a good one and you know it still has some mileage left. the violence is not over exagerated or to graffic. keep it coming pleaemoreless
  • Watching Sons of Anarchy is more like being in a dream than watching TV. The final episode of season 2 will leave you wishing you hadn't woken up.

    9.5
    Spoiler alert---there's no way to talk about this episode without giving away key points. So if you haven't seen it, please don't ruin it for yourself by reading this. For those of you who have only recently discovered this fantastic show and have breezed through seasons 1 and 2 because it was all you could do and think about--welcome. So we made it to the end of season 2. As usual our eclectic cast of characters didn't fail to entertain, shock and enrage. But this being like no other show out there, we had our hopes of closure dashed and used instead to smack us across the face and leave us with the father of all cliffhangers (family being the most important thing and all). So many loose ends...lets just hit on the bigger ones. Gemma on the lam. Zobell getting away--alive. Half Sack stabbed to death...wait that one bugs me. A lot. I really wanted to see him getting patched, actually, this is how I imagined the season would end--everything tied in a pretty little bow with Half Sack being patched. Maybe he's not really dead. He was a strong, young guy, maybe he only bled out a little...here's hoping (a girl can hope, right?). And finally, Jax on the dock with his heart broken in two. Fine acting by all involved, by the way. Can I just point out that all of this mess is a direct result of that crazy Agent Stahl, again!? She goofed with Eddy, pinned it on Gemma (by the way, who the hell sits down to rest after shooting someone in the chest?), reports it over the radio to make sure his dad hears about it. OF COURSE he's going to demand a son for a son--he's catholic, it's what we do. Uhg! The fallout was too much during those last 20 minutes of the episode (this is what I was talking about closure-no, slap in the face-yes). I can see how it might have been bad taste and unimaginative on (the wonderful) Kurt Sutter's part to get rid of Stahl's character this season (damn it Opie!), but really, next season, her exit better be SPECTACULAR. Either way, now that I have to wait until September for the next new ep of SoA, I'll have to go pop my "The Shield" cherry to avoid Sutter withdrawal.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The book on tape that Otto is listening to before he attacks the skinhead is an essay by William Barry called "The Progress of Nihilism" from an 1886 edition of Dublin Review.

    • The episode opens with a shot of a dead crow in the middle of the road, being eaten by a couple of rats, while the camera pans up to show oncoming police cars. This possibly is a reference to the opening scene of the pilot episode in which two crows are eating something of the road while the camera pans up to show Jax riding towards us.

    • "Na triobloidi" means the troubles in Irish.
      The Troubles was a period of ethno-political conflict in Northern Ireland which spilled over at various times into England, the Republic of Ireland, and mainland Europe.
