The show goes full circle., 26 June 2012
Author: mm-39 from Winnipeg

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

One of the best shows so far. The reaping of what you sow has gone full circle. Clay is a ******* and pays for it. Opie and Jax find out what Clay has done to them. Without giving away the surprise ending Opie and Jax give a surprise ending! The show uses plot devices of deceit, and trickery which creates drama. Deceit and trickery are the staples of season 4. Everyone has secrets!! In the end, secrets do come out!!! Is it worth the effort hiding them knowing that they do eventually come out? This season shows the true colors of Clay and Gemma. The question for the viewer is Gemma as bad as Clay? Are her actions excusable? The events of To Be create the environment for the season final. I give To BE, Act 1 a nine out of ten. Best episode so far this season.
