Although the land deal has been shut down thanks to a tip from Hale, and the Sons voted against immediate retaliation for the Otto attack, when a car blows up in Teller-Morrow garage, severely injuring Chibs, Clay's desire for retaliation can no longer be postponed.

The namesake of this episode is the "Falx Cerebri", a part of the dura mater in the brain. It is known for being in the shape of a scythe. The Grim Reaper on the MC jackets is holding a sycthe. Also, Chibs suffers a head injury in this episode. The name of this episode alludes to both. See more »


When Gemma hands Tara a revolver, she says it is a 38. It is actually a 357 Magnum. Also, as Gemma hands Tara ammunition, it can clearly be seen on the ammo boxes that they are for 9mm and 45 auto - not the gun Tara was just given. See more »

Playing both sides only gets you so far
7 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You have no idea how bad I want Zobelle and the rest of the League dead. Not only do I want them dead, I want them to suffer for as long as possible. As if being Nazis wasn't bad enough, they're these high and mighty Nazis that hide behind business suits and act like they're above everyone else because they're white. There are very few things I hate in this world more than people like that. This is a very rare occurrence where the antagonists anger me on a personal level. That being said though, Jax playing on both sides of the law was bound to fail eventually. I get where he's comin' from, but it's just the way things like this go. The episode itself is fantastic, probably the best I've seen so far. The whole time I was anxious as to what would happen next. Of course SAMCRO run right into a trap, and all but OP end up arrested. With prison on the horizon, it'll be interesting to see how Jax and Clay's relationship corrodes further.
