TV Review: SONS OF ANARCHY: Season 4, Episode 14: To Be, Act 2

Charlie Hunnam, Sons of Anarchy

Sons of Anarchy Season 4 Episode 14 To Be Act 2 ReviewSons of Anarchy: Season 4, Episode 14: To Be, Act 2 contained a big surprise but also something that I wished did not happen. I wanted Jackson ‘Jax’ Teller (Charlie Hunnam) to get free of SAMCRO and go off and be happy with Tara Knowles (Maggie Siff) and his two children. I knew, just like with Alias and Sydney Bristow, that some reason would pop up that would keep him there. My guess was accurate. Sons of Anarchy took the road most traveled and kept Jax around.

What would have been fantastic is if Jax did leave and then was drawn back around episode 3 of season 5 for some reason.

I knew something big was going to happen in the season finale but I never expected the Central Intelligence Agency. I am an avid watcher of Showtime’s Homeland but never saw that coming. The CIA certainly gives its operations officers/retainers a free hand in the field. Luis Torres (Benito Martinez) and Romero ‘Romeo’ Parada (Danny Trejo) have killed a slew of people in the name of their official and sanctioned “operation”.

I could not believe Terra stayed. The only thing left for her in Charming is Jax. Her medical career there is over. Throwing away safety and a career for love is cool but sad. I’m surprised Jax did not push her away for her and his children’s sake. Now Terra is fated to become like Gemma Teller Morrow (Katey Sagal) or perhaps I am misinterpreting the finally moments of the episode.

Next season Jax will be a CIA puppet, trapped, and have to deal with a gang war that Alex ‘Tig’ Trager (Kim Coates) started by killing Laroy (Tory Kittles)’s girl. There is always the bright side: Jax has the cartel (CIA) to call on for help (which they will be more than happy to do to see the fruition of their operation) and much more firepower (military weaponry) than Laroy’s gang has.
