Things are getting pretty twisted during Season 7 of “Sons of Anarchy” -- especially for the Teller matriarch, Gemma (Katey Sagal). When episode 6 of the hit FX series concluded, Gemma found herself helplessly watching her web of lies unravel at the speed of light.
So, does this mean Jax (Charlie Hunnam) will be finding out that his mommy dearest is the one responsible for the death of Tara (Maggie Siff)? We doubt Kurt Sutter, creator of the drama, would expose the show’s most climatic scene just yet, but it's safe to say that viewers are one step closer to watching Gemma get what she deserves. She is, after all, not only liable for the death of Jax’s wife but is also the one who essentially started the Season 7 madness when she pinned Tara’s murder on the Triad.
Here are Gemma’s current problems:
1. Juice (Theo Rossi) Is Back – Not only is the Samcro member back in Charming, but he’s also in the clutches of Jax. Gemma fears that Juice will throw her under the bus (confessing Gemma killed Tara) if Jax tries to send him six feet under.
Juice no longer has any loyalty to Gemma. Although she started off Season 7 having his back, she spent the remainder of episode 5 shoving a knife in it when she attempted to murder him in the woods. However, the tables turned when the paranoid Juice grabbed the gun first, pointing it at Gemma. But he didn’t pull the trigger. Instead he stole the car and booked it back to the Mayan’s clubhouse to strike up a deal (for his safety), forcing Gemma to walk miles home in spiked boots.
2. The Mayans – The Mayans are another issue for Gemma. They have revealed to Nero (Jimmy Smits) how “convenient” it is that Jax’s mom was the only one there to witness Lin’s (Kenneth Choi) men entering Jax’s home on the night of Tara’s murder.
3. Nero – Nero is quickly putting the pieces of the blood-soaked puzzle together. Not only did he hear the Mayan’s suspicion about Gemma’s tale, but he also spoke with Juice when the two were locked in the Mayan’s closet together. Nero even confronted Gemma (after his encounter with Juice) regarding whether she was the one who was helping Juice hide out. That’s when she broke down in his arms.
Viewers can anticipate episode 7, “Greensleeves,” to be as just thrilling as the previous six. According to the synopsis, Samcro will “forge an unlikely partnership in order to undermine a powerful enemy.” What foe could this be referring to? The Sons have made quite a lot during the final season. Our theory is that episode 7 will heavily revolve around August Marks (Billy Brown). Jax and Tyler (Mo McRae) are both gung-ho on seeing Marks fall from grace. But what unsuspecting partner could they be reaching out to in order to complete their mission of taking him down?
