When Nero storms his gangs clubhouse, he pulls out a small shotgun and shoots a gang member, we then hear the familiar "clack-clack", of the action on a pump shotgun being racked. The shotgun he carries is an over/under, which only holds two shots, and does not have a pump. See more »

Sons of Anarchy To Thine Own Self
22 November 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

When Tara tells Jax she was offered another job she now thinks he has done all he can with the sons which can allow him to leave. Clay wants to now be honest to Gemma but she cannot be that way with him. Tara has to meet with a lawyer to say what her story is about this business with Otto. While in lock up Otto is practically beaten to death. Jax tells Gemma that it was the cross Tara gave Otto that killed the two nurses. Clay tells Tig that he misses him at his side. He then tells him if he has a problem with the club he has some connections. The sons go to Nero's club to find where he is so they can talk to him. The sons tell Nero to come to a deal with them to leave them away. Tara runs into Wayne at the hospital and while he struggles to move around. He sees that she has a hidden agenda for meeting him. Clay meets with the cartel and is told her has two hours or Otto will be taken out. The sons in the middle of nowhere have to dive by and shoot some people. They get into a bad situation but end up living through it. Back at the club Clay talks to Jax about want he knows. He is told whomever replaces him will be coming soon. Clay turned down the leadership and is worried about how Jax is running the sons. Jax does not want to listen to Clay's advice because he has his own plan. Tara accepts the offer to move but it will take some convincing to get Jaxto go along with it. A civilian meets with Otto and tells him his life from now on will be awful and miserable. Juice goes looking all over Clay's house but finds it hard what he is looking for. Juice calls Jax telling him that he found what he was looking for. The plan is to put them back so Clay does not get suspicious. Jax is then taken away in the back of a truck while Bobby is left behind. Nero the bursts through the door of his crew looking for Jax. He kills two but leaves two living. Jax finds out it was the cartel who took him. He tries to make a deal with them and he is given freedom to go through with the plan if he goes through with his side. The club comes to a decision that the Mexican guns will be given off to the Chinese. Jax tells Gemma to take Clay to her house so they can search his house for the files. While at Gemma's house Nero comes to the door wanting to see Gemma. Nero is told it was not his crew. Gemma then talks to Nero by herself and he does not find it good that Clay is back in her house. The files are not there when the sons go to check for them. When Juice leaves Bobby tells Jax to let his worries of Clay go. Bobby comes to visit Clay telling him he will stay alive. OK episode not much to talk about.
