'Sons of Anarchy' recap: Girls packin' heat, guys gettin' shot
Will it be Jax, who, Father Ashby promises, will get son Abel if he plants a bullet in Jimmy's sheered Irish skull? Or could it be Chibs, who, reunited with wife Fiona and daughter Carrie Anne, might rip off an arm or other symbolic body part in retribution for Jimmy's infidelities?
Perhaps it will be Fiona who steps up and does the deed, because this episode shows she's capable of two-fisted gun-slinging and knows how to plant a knife. Maybe it will be Gemma, who's increasingly desperate to find Abel and more and more on edge.
Unexpected alliances are forming among the women, just as cracks are showing up in the overseas SOA brotherhood. I guess that's what happens when bombs go off and body parts are scattered and entire livelihoods are at stake.
Tara's services would have come in handy after the truck bomb. Opie's one tough dude if he can reach inside his own stomach to retrieve an apparent piece of shrapnel and still stand up.
But Tara's got her own belly to deal with. She's made her appointment at the abortion clinic. The hospital administrator is even giving her a lift. It will be interesting to see how that story line unfolds, now that the two co-workers have been rear-ended and tricked into exiting the car and the back tat on Tara's boss has been revealed. Who the heck is she?
