Sons of Anarchy: “Una Venta” Episode Review

11 Oct

This week’s episode was far from compelling. I’m not sure I even need a spoiler alert because quite honestly, nothing of true significance occurs. This is one of those episodes that functions to set up many payoffs later in the narrative. Gemma (Katey Sagal) befriends the new police chief’s wife and gets Tara (Maggie Siff) to agree to be on the wife’s committee to save the community garden from developers. Yes Gemma has her own agenda including some weed growing but that’s beside the point.

SAMCRO accompanies their first drug/gun shipment to Tucson in force.  It ends up calling attention to law enforcement but they manage to evade the ‘tail’ by blowing up some used oil drums.  They make their first delivery and receive loads of cocaine to take back.  Bobby (Mark Boone Junior) doesn’t seem pleased.

Clay (Ron Perlman) plays a hypocrite when he discovers the SAMCRO counterparts in Tucson are dealing meth.  Isn’t it a little late to be self-righteous at this point?  He interferes in their club’s business and creates a rift with the current ‘management’ who will most likely get ex-communicated after their stunt.  Finally, Clay has a lot of trouble with his hands and riding which just reinforces the need for him to exploit the drug running business and get out while he can.

Piney (William Lucking) has a health scare in Tara’s office and they have a discussion about John Teller.  We discover that Jax (Charlie Hunnam) likes to keep a journal and really, that’s about all that happens.  I’m hoping for far more next episode.
