When the Mayans, a Latino gang led by Marcus Álvarez (Emilio Rivera), steal their stockpile of weapons and burn their warehouse, SAMCRO is placed in a difficult position, as they've already taken payment for the guns from the 1-9ers, a powerful African-American gang led by Laroy Wayne (Tory Kittles). As SAMCRO president Clarence 'Clay' Morrow (Ron Perlman) plots their revenge, his step-son and club vice-president Jackson 'Jax' Teller (Charlie Hunnam) finds an old document written by his dead father John 'JT' Teller (voiced by Nicholas Guest), one of the Sons' founders. In it, JT writes about the direction in which he wanted SAMCRO to go; nothing like the gun-running direction in which Clay and his wife Gemma (Katey Sagal), Jax's mother, has taken them. When they locate where the Mayans are hiding their weaponry, Clay calls upon Jax to bring his friend Harry 'Opie' Winston (Ryan Hurst) back into the fold. However, Opie has recently been released from jail after refusing to testify ... Written by Bertaut

You Are In For A Ride
19 June 2018 | by lillylillygoteSee all my reviews

I wasn't sure about this because I tend to find overly graphic violence to be uninteresting and depressing. I was surprised at how much actually enjoyed this and couldn't wait to watch the next episode. The characters are unpredictable, funny human and dangerous all at the same time. Katie Sagal was the biggest surprise. Her portrayal of Gemma Teller-Morrow is phenomenal. Television shows that keep you wanting more are few and far between anymore.
