Fans of Sons of Anarchy are wiping their brow, prepared for the worst as Clay ramps up his operation "silence Tara" plans with the cartel, and Gemma is on to her old man and not liking it one little bit.
The lion of the series, Piney, Opie's dad and the sage that Jax turns to when the shit hits the fan lays dead, shot point blank range at the hands of Clay who is desperate to keep some old SAMCRO business quiet
Did you think that showrunner (and Otto, SAMCRO's sacrificial lifer) Kurt Sutter could fit this huge story into 13 episodes?
