I wonder if there isn't going to be a Corleone style conclusion to this season. They've already set up the Belfast SoA's presence for dealing with Chib's family. They can turn Westin against Zobell but in the end both will need bullets. And please let something really bad happen to Zobell's daughter. Jimmy O has to be dealt with and just letting him go down to the ATF might not be the way to keep the Real IRA connection. As well as the father/son IRA dudes. A lot of threads to clip in only two episodes, the last a 90 min one.
They also have been setting Clay up for an end to his presidency. The arthritis would have been enough but now that the Opie deal is more widely known Clay's going to have problems.
An interesting idea, depending on what they want to do with Pearlman, is to have Jax succeed at the end of the season or beginning of the next. Being king isn't as simple as being prince and there's the little detail of Stalh knowing what happened to Agent Kohn. He might find being in charge is like riding a tiger.
4. Performance enhancing drugs:
A) are my ticket to the Hall of Fame.
B) would be better if they tasted like fruit and were shaped like various Flintstones characters.
C) are not for me, because I find that cocaine aids my performance much more effectively.
D) apparently worked for Rodney Harrison.
