**Spoilers Lie Beyond Here**
So much of this season was spent was spent shuffling the deck, passing cards back and forth that waiting for the proper arc was getting a little exhausting. Then, they shifted it all on us. All the perception was skewed thus far. I mean, at the beginning of the season, I would’ve been able to tell you that Damon Pope would’ve been the adversary that Samcro battled throughout the season. But, I was wrong. I was dead wrong. Hell, Pope is beginning to show himself as a mentor, albiet a dangerous one, the exact flipside of the coin from Nero Padilla. As the episode progressed, it started to dawn on me who the real villain of the season is.
