Ak-51 (#1.6), 29 August 2015

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Another solid episode. The main story is about an old friend of Piney causing trouble for the club and them having to deal with it. Pretty well done. Again there is action and intensity and also good portrayal of human feelings. This time it mainly comes from Piney who has to deal with somebody who was his war friend and the officer who saw his friend die but realizes it is too late to get out of the deal with the club.

Another story is Cherry coming to town to see Kip and this not ending too well. This had some funny moments. Such as Gemma hitting her on the face with a skateboard and also the interchange Gemma had with Clay in the police station. But it also had some great moments such as the conversation Gemma and Clay had when he got out and she was still in. As well as Gemma's talk with Cherry. She was really much nicer than I expected.
