4.3 Dorylus

After an extremely interesting seachild opener and also second episode, things are a little slower in the human being of SAMCRO this week, through episode 3 being somewhat much less activity based and concentrating even more on the politics of the club.


The 2 big narratives this week are both relating to the deal made through the Mexihave the right to cartel, namely the alters to the Sons’ gun running operation, and the transition into drugs. More on the drugs later on.


Whilst moving weapons into a truck at Happy’s grandmother’s residence, Kozik gets affiliated in a basketround game via some of the regional children in the area, through the impetus being a cash prize. Kozik, though, ends up obtaining bconsumed up by the kids, who then steal the truck through the guns inside. 

When the rest of the Sons uncover out what has happened, Jax loses the plot, nearly coming to blows via Kozik. After finding the 2 thieves and also providing them a beating, it is discovered that the weapons were sold to two of Vivica’s sons, rather amusingly referred to as Luther and also Vandross. So, the Sons acquire their guns back, and also a quite red faced Kozik may take a while to live this dvery own.

A lot of the episode is dedicated to how the vote on the Sons relocating right into drugs will certainly go. At the begin of the episode, Clay decides that he will certainly job-related on convincing Bobby, and Jax decides that he will certainly job-related on Opie.


Clay takes Bobby aside and explains to him that in time he will certainly need to step down, and also Jax will certainly want to leave because of family members commitments, and also that because of this, he would certainly choose Bobby at the helm of the club. This contradicts what Jax and Clay talked about last week, once they sassist Opie would be the new club president. 

If this is just a ploy by Clay in order to obtain Bobby to vote ‘yes’, then it’s incredibly cold, as it has actually been sassist time and also time aacquire that Bobby and also Clay have been friends for a really lengthy time. It might of course be the case that Clay has no intention of allowing Opie to be club president once Clay actions down. 

I think this one will certainly have effects. The concern of whether or not to begin carrying drugs has really divided the club in its entirety, and this time it is Piney’s revolve to voice his comes to around it, and it doesn’t go to well. This is probably down to Piney informing Gemma about it. When Gemma confronts Clay, he overreacts and also violently grabs her. After the vote, he tells Piney that if he ever before goes behind his back prefer that, he will kill him. 


We have actually checked out both sides to Clay’s character. Lately it has been the warmth, doting husband and also father figure side that we have actually checked out more often, yet this series has actually been going earlier to the vicious, calculating side that we observed a lot even more of in series one and also 2.


Back to the vote, which transforms out in favour of drug dealing by 6-5. Many of the reasons for assorted club member’s decisions are fairly obvious, yet I can’t figure out why Happy apologised and also voted versus it. He’s such a fringe character that it is often difficult to number him out.

Elsewbelow in Charming, Roosevelt and Potter are trying to figure out new methods to get at the Sons. This week, they’ve decided to occupational on Juice. Roosevelt takes Juice in to the station and also sort of threatens him, saying that he will tell the Sons that Juice has a babsence father. I couldn’t really number out why this would make any type of distinction, to be hoswarm, as the Sons have actually operated with the Niners and the Mayans in the past, so they’re clearly not a racist organisation.

Also, Gemma lastly confronts Tara about the letters, explaining exactly how it will hurt Jax to recognize the fact around his father. I really doubt that we’ve heard the last of this arc, as it has been running through the present since day one, and also we still don’t understand what taken place to John Teller. We perform recognize that Jax knows far more than his mom thinks, and his hero worship for has father appeared to fade at the finish of the last seaboy when he found out around his affair via Maureen Ashby in Belfast.

So, all in all, a far sreduced episode than the two coming before it, however still perfectly serviceable. The ‘bigger picture’ is looking great for this series, and I’m really feeling good around the direction that it is taking.
