“Sons of Anarchy” was saved by a pen with shamrocks, or at least by Jax’s quick thinking once seeing that pen. “The Mad King” episode from “Sons of Anarchy” on Tuesday night dropped jaws in living rooms across the nation, starting with the voyeuristic sick prison guards right through to the ending when the clubhouse was blown to pieces.
According to the response that the Hollywood Reporter is getting on their Oct. 8 article on last night’s “Sons of Anarchy” episode, Kurt Sutter is a genius. He has the online world buzzing with fans of the show going over what they witnessed on the “Son’s” last night. The "No Luck of the Irish" seen in their article title couldn't say it better!
This unbelievable episode didn’t fail to leave you with a pit in your stomach especially after the two perverted prison guards forced Gemma to have sex with Clay. The guards not only watched but they both sat there and masturbated to Clay and Gemma’s encounter.
You couldn’t help but feel sorry for both Gemma and Clay, but Gemma agreed to the sex with Clay to get the guards to stop beating him. It was rape, but not in the traditional form. If she declined, one of the sick guards was going to mount her instead of Clay, and Clay would continue to get a beating, this was her option.
Gemma was told on her way out if she talked, Clay would die. This would be one way for Gemma to get Clay out of her life for good, but she’s still holding some type of deep seeded feelings for Clay. She has the power to send a couple of the SAMCRO boys to kill these two guards, but will she?
After her bizarre rape, Gemma was at the club when Jax had called a meeting for all club members to come to the table. The Irish gave Jax a proposition for him to put out there for a vote. With the Irish setting up a conference call for 8 p.m., they knew the club would be full of members and they sent a bomb.
The bomb came as a keg of beer and the deliveryman was the one to leave the shamrock pen behind. This is the pen that Jax saw that made him start screaming to get everyone out. Tara took their youngest boy out, but their oldest child was asleep in one of the clubhouse bedrooms.
Jax got him out without a second to spare, they were blown off their feet from the blast. Gemma stood and watched as SAMCRO’s clubhouse was blown to smithereens. Will she finally agree for Tara to take the boys away from this life? She saw how close Abel was to dying in this blast.
After her earlier traumatic dealings at the prison, where she became an unwilling sex show for two sick men, will she finally want something better for her “grand babies,” as she calls them? Even if Gemma still presents with opposition for Tara to take the boys out of Charming, Tara won’t back away from her plans now.
Tara was staying at the “Sons of Anarchy” clubhouse with the boys to be safe, but now she knows she can’t be safe anywhere in Charming. This has to be a wake-up call for Gemma, Jax and Tara about the kid’s safety. Now the war is on. The Irish almost wiped the “Sons of Anarchy” off the face of the Earth, and the boys of SAMCRO won’t back away from this.
This was an episode that left you with a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach.
