Tonight’s “Sons of Anarchy” was a particularly sad one, as not even Happy could cheer us up from what was otherwise a particularly sad and depressing hour of TV. It was during this that we had to watch so much go wrong for Tara as Jax found out the truth about her plan, and she ended up completely isolated and where no one could lend a helping hand.
Next week, we will of course see where Charlie Hunnam, Maggie Siff, and the rest of the cast go from here in “Aon Persona.” We’re going to break this all down now bit by bit, so let’s get started.
The title – The rough Gaelic translation from what we’ve found the past several weeks (which has been tricky, even compared to past episodes with titles in other languages) is “nothing personal.” Somehow, this feels almost particularly perfect given that everything is personal in this world. Who doesn’t love titles with a little bit of snark in another language?
The synopsis – You’re really not going to get much from this, since it summarizes everything else that we have basically heard the past few weeks: “Tension mounts as the club makes a bold move to finally get out of guns.” (Chris Collins and Kurt Sutter wrote this episode, and Peter Weller directed.) The reason that these are so vague here is because FX releases them weeks ahead of time, and they have to be spoiler-free.
The promo – This clip really speaks for itself, but let’s just say that it involves a ton of firearms, masks, Clay being transported, and Jax and Nero conspiring together on the future of the club. Clay is finally going to have more to do than he has almost for this entire season, but it’s hardly in the best circumstances. For those who thought “Huang Wu” was slowly-paced, this could be a thrill ride.
