Gemma gives JT's letters to Jax, explaining that JT was planning on getting SAMCRO out of gun running, but Clay killed him first, although she hides the information concerning her and Unser's role in the death. She also tells Jax that Clay killed Piney and tried to have Tara killed, telling him his only course of action now is to kill Clay, and assume the presidency. Tara gives Jax a syringe, telling him he should kill Clay so as to make it look like a complication after his surgery, and that once it is done, she will be ready to leave Charming with him. As Potter and Roosevelt prepare to storm the Galindo/Irish Kings meet, it transpires that neither Romeo nor Torres is who anyone thought them to be. However, without Clay to oversee the deal, the Kings are unwilling to negotiate. Written by Bertaut

It's the lack of attention to detail that gets me
2 August 2020 | by ameliek81See all my reviews

The most annoying thing about this show is the lack of attention to detail. In this episode, Bobby suddenly has a guitar while in holding. Where did he get the guitar? Why is he allowed to have a guitar? Who brought him the guitar? It's things like this that happens in every single episode that really lower the quality of the show. Someone or some people aren't thinking about how these things fit into the story or how it makes sense. In this case, it seems wanted to have a specific visual, Bobby sitting alone in his cell, barefoot playing the guitar, like they thought "ooo, this would look so cool!" without regard to how it has anything to do with the story or if it made any sense. This is either on the director or the writers or both. It's just annoying to be into the story and they get these eye roll moments.
