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'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.

Nero and Unser both found out about Jax's reasons for attacking Lin, which was a huge step forward in those storylines. Plus, that cliffhanger was pretty satisfying all by itself.

"Some Strange Eruption" makes up for its sense of familiarity by pushing the Juice-Gemma situation to an actual confrontation.

You had to have known it was coming, but the latest episode of Sons of Anarchy showed the impact Jax's life truly has on his kids.

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).
