Critic reviews for Poor Little Lambs
Nothing balances another bloody massacre like a romantic interlude between a motorcycle gangster and the local tranny.
Anyone and anything near the orbit of the Sons of Anarchy seems to risk coming to a bloody end. With nine more episodes left I can't even imagine who will be left standing when it's over.
While some of the first half of the episode felt like it was stalling on the big ticket storylines, the action-filled, although downbeat, ending signaled a turning point in the war Jax started.
Not only was the storyline the perfect opportunity for Tig and Rat to have more of their weird sexual banter, but it marked the return of Venus, (Justified's Walton Goggins).
Sons of Anarchy is using the deaths of women as stunts to further its plot, and it's happened so often over the years that it now feels sloppy and contrived.
I was surprised at how callous the club was over their crime... but Jax and the rest acted as though the whole thing was just a nutty gag played on them by fate, and not a quadruple homicide brought about by their own carelessness.
