Fa Guan (#2.9), 17 September 2015
Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This episode is slower than the previous one but by no means is it boring. It is just a little break for the viewers from over the top intensity of he past episode and showing us that there is definitely more to come.

I really like how it is getting more intense between Jax and Clay. Jax thinking that Clay burned his studio down and even wanting to relocate from this club. I don't think he will, but I now wonder what exactly will stop him.

Did Gemma discover Jesus now? I wonder where they will go now with her attending church. Maybe I am wrong and this is just a one time thing.
