Too Far…..Sons of Anarchy…Too Far

OK I was with you when Walton Goggins made a second appearance as Venus Van Damne but an entire episode dedicated to the character is a bit too much. This was a filler episode while the season works its way to a close and that is all it was. I appreciate any opportunity to see Walton Goggins talent but seeing the MC going so far to look out for his/her interests is a bit much.  I get it, the show is progressive…that’s great, but let’s get back to the point shall we? Nothing against the movement it supports, as my wife dictates, we are very pro…whatever and I am all for that, but they went farther with it than I felt was necessary on the show.

The number one thing that concerns me about this episode is did I miss something? Did Bobby rejoin the club last week and I not notice? I thought Bobby was forming his own club and all of a sudden he is back in the fold. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy about it. In the first few minutes they not only brought Bobby back into the fold but then increased the club size by something like 80%, and that’s probably a low figure because Bobby included it’s more like 100%. That’s great but I thought Bobby talked to Jax about forming his own charter last week and Jax was all for it. However, it is really cool to hear Jax refer to Bobby as his Consigliere, which is the role Tom Hagan filled for the family in The Godfather.

I don’t think Nero will turn on Jax and give up the club.  I think Jax should be more concerned with Robocop and what he knows.  Nero is an OG, he will do time before he turns, but the character Peter Weller plays has a lot to lose and nothing beholding him to the club. That potential threat coupled with the lengths Tara is willing to go through to get away equal bad news for Jax.  I’m not sure where they are going to go with all this but I can’t wait to see.
