OKAY OKAY. Like talking shit on Gemma is one thing, but don’t EVEN talk shit on Juice unless you plan for a fight. This poor man has been wieghed down by guilt since the middle of season 4 and has no idea how to handle ANY of it. Every decision he has made has been with the best of intentions with either the Club in mind, OR, trying to right some wrongs that he believes he’s made.
OF COURSE Juice would choose to protect Gemma. OF COURSE. How could he not. Not only has Gemma always been a voice of reason for him and a mother he never really had, but she’s protected him. So he is paying her back. He’s trying to right some wrongs. Because this is the only way that he knows how to live. It’s the life that the Club has hardwired into him.
Since his story arch really began in Season 4, Juice has been the one carrying the all the emotional weight of the Sons. Because even he admitted it to Jax a couple episodes ago. He doesn’t know who he is. He’s still trying to see himself as a good idea in all this shit that has been going down. He doesn’t know how to live with and ACCEPT the things that he believes he’s done wrong. AND SOME OF THAT IS ON JAX.
Jax has put him through SHIT this season, and he hasn’t thought about the cost of it. I don’t think there is anyone more loyal than Juice. Loyalty is hardwired into his brain when it comes to the Club.
When Jax told him “You betrayed me” tonight…what did he do? He didn’t run. He hung his head for a moment and then went to find Gemma. Because that’s what he knew was right. Even though he KNOWS he’s going to die…he does the right thing based upon his loyalty to the Club.
Juice is going to be a martyr.
WHAT DID I SAY
WHAT. DID. I. SAY.
WHEN YOU BETRAY BLOOD ON THIS SHOW, IT ENDS IN BLOOD.
WHAT. DID. I. SAY.
I FUCKING KNEW THIS SHIT WOULD GO DOWN.
IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH WHAT HAPPENS TO JUICE AFTER EVERYTHING YOU HAVE PUT HIM THROUGH
I AM DONE WITH YOU
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.
