Sons of Anarchy Ablation
31 October 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Last week Gemma got into a car accident and Jax killed a black guy. The aftermath is Able was taken away on a stretcher and the body was gotten rid of. The sons take the body to the cabin and to get rid of it they cut his hands off to get prints and sending one to Pope. Tara then gets a call that her babies are in trouble. Tara and Jax see that Able is getting an operation done on him. Gemma wakes up in a hospital bed hearing that Able only has a cut on his head. While Able is still injured little Tommy is brought in as he seems to be unaffected by the accident. Wayne finds out who the body is and that he has no connections to Pope. Clay lies by telling Jax that Gemma was hit by the same people who went after him. The sons go to meet with Pope to see if he was involved in any of these hits. The sheriff then comes into talk to his informant who still knows nothing. Jax meets with Pope as he shows him his new area he has purchased to set up many buildings. Nero comes to see Gemma in the hospital where she tells him the truth about her being stoned when she was driving with the kids. She also tells him Clay is covering for her which leads him to tell her she needs to tell the truth to Tara and Jax. The sons find the man responsible and he shoots at them to try and run away up the stairs. The driver tells them that he was only driving after Jax and not his kids. He finishes by shooting him off the building. Clay talks to Juice about why he talks to the sheriff so much, he does not tell him even though Clay try's to get it out of him. Juice then finally tells Clay about what he really does for the club. Clay then tells him that it is OK. Tara comes to visit Gemma as she is about to be released from the hospital. Tara hugs Gemma and Jax comes into the room. Gemma asks to see Able and Tara seems pretty OK with it. The sons are called to Nero's house and the third responsible for killing the sheriff's wife. He gets away with Chibs driving the getaway car not before shooting his hostage. Nero then tells Jax the truth that she was responsible and not the hangs. Jax then comes to the hospital with the truth about the accident getting Gemma to tell Tara the truth. Gemma is done with the kids as she is slapped out the room. Chibs is not killed but hit over the head with the gun and left in the middle of no where. Jax now knows the truth about Gemma and Clay but unlike Gemma he is keeping his knowledge a secret from Clay. The sheriff then makes a deal if he kills his wife's killers he will release the name of the rat at the table. Jax tells Tara he has a plan to get rid of Clay. Jax tells Clay Gemma is dead to his family and that he needs to look after her. Clay tells Gemma the only way she can get back into the good graces of his family is playing Clay by starting a relationship with him again.
