I kind of expected Ope to volunteer himself, but that didn't make it any less hard to watch. You're right about the scene where Tig's kid gets torched as well, though I found Ope's scene heavier to watch. Probably because I don't have any kids, and we never got a chance to bond to Tig's kid like we did with Opie.
It's getting in the same ballpark in regard to heaviness as the comic version of The Walking Dead, in my opinion. Which is a good thing in my mind.
Yeah, I can see how the emotional torque would be less effective on someone without kids. I've got a daughter so that scene left my mouth hanging open, wide eyed, going "damn.......".
I kind of expected Ope to volunteer because that's sort of what he does, like why he was in prison with them to begin with. But the guy left his pile of kids with a porn actress. Now all orphans. Tig killed the wife and now Ope because he just acted for the club on his own.
I think I saw SOA was picked up for a season or two more, but Sutter is burning this to the ground sort of like the last season of The Shield. Can't speak to the Walking Dead.
I dunno, maybe Tig will get the idea he may be getting shit out by the club and re-align with Clay. That whole scene where Gemma beat up that hooker makes me think she'll work with Clay too, maybe to try and off Tara.
Chuckie Pancomo from Oz, the nomad who landed with SAMCRO was pulling some shit. Though I can't remember what. He may align with Clay and company. Maybe Juice too, he seems really sympathetic too Clay's bind.
I'll see tomorrow, since I'm working tonight. All Tuesdays. Fucking sucks man.
