Insist things have been made right. Take a drink. Smile smugly at the friends and family that surround you in your time of “triumph”. Rinse, repeat. Such is the cycle SAMCRO, and by extension Sons of Anarchy, finds themself in after once again conquering a would-be enemy with nothing but fire power and questionable wit. The thing about this cycle of pulling solutions out of nowhere shortly after discovering impending danger is that it makes for a repetitive and predictable season. Instead of Kurt Sutter emptying out his story bucket and taking chances when possible, the show has found itself in a rut of inevitable violence and unsurprising dialogue. A few developing threads this episode have great potential to reverse this trend, but they move so slowly it is possible nothing could come to fruition for a few episodes more, though at this point, any forward momentum is welcome.
