As I binge through SoA this episode was a breath of fresh air. It's relatively free of the ponderous melodrama inflicting so much of the series and feels like it gives the characters a day off to actually ride their bikes and have some fun. They get to mix it up with some crooked cops and Jax has a double dose of good news at the biker meetup as he is supported by other chapters on his moves to separate from the IRA and Bobby comes back to the fold with new recruits. Things feel relatively 'normal' for once. Not that this show ever really established what 'normal' was but I feel that the series could have used a lot more 'lite' episodes like this one scattered throughout rather than trying to turn the Doom and Gloom dial to 11 on every episode... because when there is no baseline of what a good day is like it's hard to really appreciate the depths of pain when the bad days come along.
Anyway, good episode... comparatively.
