JD is speaking to the pack. JD tells the pack that a war is coming between the vampires and the humans – he tells the pack that they join his Sons of Anarchy Season 5 Episode 1 friend the vampire and they drink V. JD tries to talk Emma into drinking the V – Martha hears him and grabs Emma and tells JD she does not know him anymore. Joe Bob comes to get Hoyt they are rolling – going to kill some Sups. Sam is at the hospital and the nurse tells him visiting hours are over. As he walks out an orderly walks by and he smells him and he realizes he is one of the men shooting SUPS. Sam jumps on his and accuses him of killing his friends and the man accuses him of the same.
Sons of Anarchy
Season 5 Episode 1 Well that certainly opened with a bang.
There were many of us in the SAMCRO fandom who feared the series was beginning
to lose some of its luster during its meandering third season spent partially
but what made it even better was all that it set up for Season Five. Clay, The King, is not dead, the club is not rid of outside influences (in this case, the CIA via the Galindo cartel); they’re still running guns Sons of Anarchy Season 5 Episode 1 and drugs, and the members themselves, and their families, are in constant danger. Though there was no time jump from the end of last year’s run to the start of this one, things are already incredibly busy and incredibly dark. For a reminder of where things left off last year and a look at how things kicked off with the new season, hit the jump.
sons-of-anarchy-charlie-hunnamWhen we last left the club, Piney was dead by Clay’s hand, Clay had also torn his family apart by putting a hit on Tara, Tig caused drama Sons of Anarchy Season 5 Episode 1 with the Niners because of Clay’s lies (notice the pattern here), Clay beat up Gemma, and the truth about him killing JT came to light, at least to Jax, Gemma and Tara. In non-Clay news, the CIA / Galindo cartel still needs the deal between SAMCRO and the Irish to go through … which is something that won’t happen without Clay. Sigh.
"Sovereign’s” opening touched on nearly all of these elements, or at least the ones that are currently the most dangerous to the club. Despite his desire to make the club pure again, like his father had intended, Sons of Anarchy Season 5 Episode 1 Jax is still caught up in the mess Clay made for them (and spends his time journalling about it for his sons because not only can the club read, "despite popular belief,” as Chibs said, they can get in touch with their feelings, too).
The Niners have always been the least of SAMCRO’s many gang-related worries. Though they’ve had beef, the club has always been able to pacify LeRoy and set Sons of Anarchy Season 5 Episode 1 things straight, occasionally even putting their incredible racism behind them to team up against bigger threats. But it’s good to see the show start to address the consequences of some of the club’s bloody actions, like Tig’s impulsive drive-thru (rather than drive-by) that killed Veronica Pope, girlfriend of LeRoy but, more importantly, the daughter of an extremely well-connected and bloody gangster (played by Harold Perrineau from Lost. You know, "WAAAAAALLLLLLTTTTTTTTTT’s” dad?) who is like a hybrid of Stringer Bell and Marlo from The Wire.
