“Sons of Anarchy” creator Kurt Sutter sure knows how to put a gal on the edge of her seat! During the final moments of episode 5, a huge twist was written into the storyline of the hit FX series. Since the Season 7 premiere aired, Gemma (Katey Sagal) and Juice (Theo Rossi) were thought of as two peas in a very corrupted pod. Juice had helped Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) mom flee the murder scene of Tara’s (Maggie Siff) murder (in addition to keeping her dirty little secret hush, hush) and in return, Gemma decided to help Juice not be killed by SAMCRO for betraying her son.
However, their “unholy alliance” took a turn down a very dark road -- literally -- when “Some Strange Eruption” aired Tuesday, Oct. 7. After the huge Triad vs. Sons blowout (that nearly wiped out Lin [Kenneth Choi] and his men) the episode returned to the plot line of Juice’s current dilemma. SAMCRO still wants him dead and it’s really affecting the jumpy-club member. When a motel employee gets into Juice’s room, he mistakes the worker for one of Lin’s men and shoots him… over and over and over again.
Following the gruesome death, Gemma arrived to the scene to rescue Juice and bring him to her father’s house far, far away -- or so that’s what he thought. It wasn’t until Gemma started taking a suspicious, alternate route and start reaching for her gun did Juice piece together what the evil mastermind had up her sleeve -- or should we say in her purse? Looks like Juice’s paranoia came in handy because he was able to snag the weapon first. After having the gun in his clutches, Juice pointed it at his betrayer, which is when the episode concluded.
So, what’s next for Juice, Gemma and the rest of the SAMCRO gang when episode 6, “Smoke ‘em if You Got ‘em” airs Tuesday, Oct. 14? Well, according to the seriously vague synopsis, Jax will take advantage of “shifting alliances to protect the MC” in addition to settling a score when the new episode airs next week.
