The newest episode of the FX drama “Sons of Anarchy” had the motorcycle club at the center of the show continue its war with another crime group.

“Sons” centers on the motorcycle club Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, Redwood Original (also known as SAMCRO), which is based in the town of Charming, California. Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) is the son of John Teller, who was the founder of the Sons of Anarchy, and Gemma Teller (Katey Sagal). After the death of Jax's father, Gemma married Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman), who became the new club president. However, after the death of Clay, Jax became the president.

After Henry Lin, the leader of the criminal group the Lin Triad, had various prostitutes killed at the brothel Diosa Norte, which Jax co-owns, Jax wanted to get his revenge on members of the Lin Triad. Jax told Nero (Jimmy Smits), the co-owner of Diosa Norte, that Lin had ordered his wife, Tara (Maggie Siff) to be killed (though in fact his mother Gemma had killed her, which Jax does not yet know). 

At a later confrontation, Jax and Lin come to blows, but Lin is arrested.

Juice (Theo Rossi), a member of SAMCRO, knows that Gemma killed Jax’s wife Tara and when the two of them are in a car together, she tries to grab her gun but Juice takes it instead and shoots at her until she asks him not to kill her. The resolution of the situation is left up in the air.

Many critics received the episode positively, with James Queally of the Los Angeles Times writing that “'Sons’ is hitting a stride it hasn’t seen in quite some time, as [the episode] 'Some Strange Eruption' delivers another effective episode heavy with meaningful conflict” and Diana Steenbergen of IGN noting that Nero and Wayne Unser, the former chief of the Charming Police Department, finding out why Jax is going after the Lin Triad “was a huge step forward in those storylines. Plus, that cliffhanger was pretty satisfying all by itself.”
