Not to be Missed
20 January 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I found this episode to be one of the best. Things are heating up for the Sons as they feel the wrath of Damien Pope's (Harold Perinneau) vendetta. He is powerful and his reach is long. Jimmy Smit's character Nero is revealed in more detailed and it turns out he may be more of friend to the club than simply just seeing Gemma (Katey Segal). Tara (Maggie Siffs) and Jackson's (Charlie Human) relationship moves to a new level whilst Opie (Ryan Hurst) struggles with his loyalty to the club. There is personal drama and violence. For fans of the show, this is a standout episode. Without giving anything away there are certain events in this episode that should not be missed. It also gives you an insight into what is for most of us a whole different world. It's another reason why the show is so great.
