Poor Donna. I hate Tigs, Clay & Gemma.
21 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

I feel so heartbroken for Opie & I hope Clay, Tigs & the FBI lady gets what is coming to them. I am going to miss Opie's & Donna's relationship because they were the only sane couple this season.

I knew Laroy would betray Clay & I am glad he did too. Clay & Tigs had no right to do anything behind the club's back.

Gemma really needs to stop meddling in people's business. She needs to leave Tara and Jax alone so that they can figure out what they need to do. It is so strange, but I cannot find it in me to hate Wendy even though I want Tara with Jax. Wendy better stay sober because I am rooting for her. In reality, Jax is not shitx & both girls should find someone better.
