Critic Reviews for Some Strange Eruption

Kurt Sutter throws a curveball and gives the guys a short breather between massacres. And you have marvel at what good use Althea and Chibs make of the time.

I was happy with this week's episode because I felt that the main plot was the most interesting that it has been so far this season.

I kind of hate how this was played, although it was enjoyable to see Jax get his ass handled for a little while.

Tonight's installment still brought some powerfully intriguing plot points into the mix.

Some Strange Eruption had some good plots twists and turns, which has been the show's bread and butter in the last few years.

Given how seemingly helpful and level-headed Gemma has been so far this season, her taking a turn for the murderous is both a bit of a twist and also perfectly within character.

Have I mentioned how much I love Katey Sagal? Man, she is good.

This episode does well in keeping our tensions rising and creating frustration as we wait for the truth to be revealed (much like the frustration we feel as Hamlet whines and dawdles).

I'm really enjoying Sheriff Jarry. She's doing her best to stem the violence by working within the system and not just the justice system but the outlaw one as well.

Jan 2, 2015 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

"Some Strange Eruption" delivers another effective episode heavy with meaningful conflict, drawing lines in the sand between characters whose motives were often murky to the point of confusion in years past.
