I really think that scene last night between Gemma and Tara is one of the best in the whole series.
It held the weight of the battle these two characters have been having for the heart of Jax Teller the entire series.
Despite what team we are on LOL, I think we can all agree on that.
Okay, can we just bow down to Kurt Sutter right now.
Because all this Team Gemma and Team Tara shit don’t even matter anymore. Sutter has created a double edged sword after that confession from Gemma in the last episode.
Gemma gave her blessing to let JT be killed to protect her boys
Tara is doing what she is doing to protect her boys.
…the things mothers do for their sons.
IM TEAM KURT SUTTER
I completely agree that Jax in the end, may forgive Tara for everything she did behind his back, but Gemma is still right. He’s not going to let anyone take his boys away from him.
I have been saying this since the beginning of this season
The most grievous sin you can commit on this show is betraying your own blood.
Tara is never going to be forgiven.
Clearly, she doesn’t know Jax as well as she thought.
Totally fucking agree with that.
No one knows Jax better than his mother.
catching up on SOA and literally CANT with Tara anymore.
This fucking bitch better get what’s coming to her.
AND CAN WE JUST BOW DOWN TO THE GENIUS THAT IS IN KURT SUTTERS BRAIN.
The opening scene of last week’s episode going back and forth between Gemma/Nero and Jax/Tara…
…shows how much these two women have changed since the beginning of the series. Gemma used to live in lies, and now she is more all about telling the truth. And then Tara started out all about the truth, and now she is spinning SO MANY lies.
You are a fucking GENIUS Kurt Sutter. DAMN.
I am not making a double standard for this Gemma vs Tara argument.
Sure, Gemma has done some questionable things. Would she do some of those again at this point…? Probably not. Remember with Tara at first, she was worried about Jax getting himself killed over her. But now, (obviously not now because of what just happened) but she would do anything for Tara. Because there has always been one thing with Gemma that is the most important: SHE. NEVER. BETRAYS. FAMILY.
What Tara is doing…goes against ALL of that. She is manipulating EVERYONE, pitting family against family to get what she wants. And I know it’s to protect her sons, but this is SO THE WRONG WAY. Gemma would never do this. Not like this. Not by betraying family.
THAT is why I want to gouge Tara’s eyes out right now. Because betraying your own blood is the most grievous sin on this show. And she just went WAY too far. And she’s basically digging her own grave.
Because she needs to remember that Wendy grew up in the Club too. She understands that. She KNOWS her being involved is wrong. And now that she knows what Tara had been planning all along…she’s going to break and spill soon. No way she let’s this go on through the end. Unless somehow Tara stops her.
