'Sons of Anarchy' recap: The morning after
Episode 7 opens with a view Jax no doubt saw up close and personal during his sleazy porn-star tryst, with a glimpse of pale and perky butt cheeks taking up the entire screen. It was a brilliant and startling starter for an episode that is easily the best of the season so far.
For full dramatic effect, Tara, of course, had to walk in on Jax in post-coital repose, which set in motion a string of porn-star bitch slaps and some of the most colorful clubhouse boys talk ever written, as Jax and Opie bantered about "high-traffic zones" and the future of their respective appendages.
Where there's sex on "SOA," violence is never far behind. The wet spots barely had a chance to dry before Jax and the rest of SAMCRO were off to mess with one of the lesser Mexican MCs, planting a bullet in the head of one member as payback for a cleaver in the head of another.
Meanwhile, back at the hospital, Gemma phones Maureen in Belfast to let her know SAMCRO is coming. What she gets in return is some thank you: Maureen, it turns out, had a kid with Gemma's ex, John Teller -- father of Jax. Should be interesting when the two half-sibs meet.
And when Gemma sees Mo. My prediction: catfight. Gemma's tips are gonna hurt.
Tara won't be going, but her life isn't exactly boring. Helping Gemma escape with a faked drug reaction? Then convincing the hospital administrator to corroborate her lie?
Jax is a dang fool. I'm glad he's heading to Ireland, where the Belfast chapter seems to be prepping to give him a good whupping.
