Spoilers for Wednesday night's "Sons of Anarchy" coming up just as soon as I pick up my menopause prescription...
Okay, greater cinematic skateboard theft: Marty McFly or Gemma? While the obvious temptation is to give it to Marty, what with the stuntwork and the manure truck and all, he didn't so much steal a skateboard as invent one, so I may have to give this one to Gemma. Or maybe I'm just afraid she'd break my nose with one if I don't.
"Sons of Anarchy" continues to get stronger as it goes along. This episode held up a welcome magnifying glass to Gemma and Clay's relationship (giving Katey Sagal and Ron Perlman a deserved showcase), as well as to more details about MC culture. (The sin wasn't so much that Clay cheated on Gemma, but that the girl then showed her face in Charming. Noted.)
After not a lot of movement on the Agent Kohn thing since he arrived in town, the ATF (both the actual agents(*) and guys on "vacation" like Kohn) got deep into SAMCRO's(**) business, and the death of the cop created some interesting moments between Jax and their cop contact Trammel.
(*) Ally Walker is married to FX president John Landgraf, and some FX producers seem to take special delight in casting her in extreme roles on their shows, first as a hooker on "The Shield," here as a sexually aggressive fed. As anyone who read my "Tell Me You Love Me" reviews knows, I would watch Walker read the phone book, and so this peculiar brand of nepotism/cronyism is more than welcome. I assume Kohn is going to crash and burn eventually, and I'd love to see Walker stick around as a thorn in the club's side.
(**) Which spelling do you prefer: SAMCRO or Sam Crow? I've seen it both ways, both on the show and in the press materials. I guess all-caps hurts my eyes, so I'll probably go with Sam Crow in the future.
I'm still waiting to feel attached to Jax in some way, but beyond that, "Sons of Anarchy" is showing the kind of quality progression I like to see from shows that started off with a promising but uneven pilot episode. More, please.
What did everybody else think?
