I hope Tig and Venus make it out safely and go live on Nero's farm.

I want Tiggy and Venus to take Juice to Disney World and they all get ice cream and go on splash mountain and the teacups and have a lovely day and no one gets shot in the face or exploded or chopped up into little pieces.

I may have missed this at one point but why is Juice scared of the club?

He was involved in building the abandoned RICO case against them and Jax eventually figured it out.

From like 2 seasons ago? I thought that got resolved.

I feel like it did but then something brought it up again? Reading the episode synopses for season 6 is no fucking help at all, sigh

OH RIGHT I think Jax is mad again because Juice confessed to Nero about having killed Nero's nephew's girlfriend, Darvany? maybe?

Ah yes. It took a bit of reading but I see what you're talking about now.

I mean I honestly can't understand why Gemma hasn't killed him already, since he's the only one that can ever tie her to Tara's murder. It's not like she has any trouble killing people she loves or once loved. Obviously the silenced gun in her bag is meant to make us assume this is gonna happen.

Ah yeah, you're right about Juice confessing to Nero. Jax had been wary of him since the RICO stuff though since he figured out from Eli's hint that Juice was the rat.

I think maybe Gemma has avoided killing Juice thus far because normally she relies on the club or Unser to clean up after her and she can't do that in this case.

I also think the tiny part of Gemma that is human feels like it would be a betrayal, since Juice truly saved her ass in the aftermath of Tara's death.

As much as I love this show, I'm so ready for it all to be over. It's all so intense and I feel like I honestly can't take much more.

Juice, Gemma...everyone is a ticking time bomb and I know they're all going to be destroyed, I just don't know how. I just keep telling myself that it'll all be over soon.

Loved the stuff between Tigg and Venus though.

I agree, this season has been very hard to watch. I love Charlie Hunnam and have always felt like he does a great job humanizing Jax to the point where you're rooting for him even when he does bad things, but he is so distastefully off the deep end now that I won't even mind if they kill him in the end. He really deserves to go down.

I suppose though, that one of the reasons it's hard to watch is because it shows horrific consequences coming from horrific actions and it really feels like there won't be a happy or neat ending. Which is unusual for tv shows.

I normally really like the writing but I'm so aggravated at the scene where Officer Cane was killed and Officer Eglee threw up her hands and screamed. And then ran away? Ugh. They usually do better with their female characters - I can't see Gemma freaking out like that. She'd have grabbed her gun and started shooting back and at least taken a couple of them with her.

That whole scene where police officers are clearly watching something suspect between the Aryan Brotherhood and the Sons and they don't bother to call it in? Or stop a little ways back and do a little, I don't know, surveillance?! I can overlook a lot for sake of the plot but that's pushing the limits. I'm disappointed the writers couldn't come up with something a little better - maybe an AB guy coming late to the meeting, seeing the officers and shooting them.

Oh and yeah, Tig and Venus - those two are made for each other. I always have liked Tig for just being completely who he is all the time.
