Critic Consensus: Even though Sons of Anarchy tends to rely too heavily on brutal plot twists for effect, saying goodbye to a familiar face gives "Greensleeves" some emotional weight.

Critic Reviews for Greensleeves

As we wheel through the halfway point of the final season, Kurt Sutter seems to herding everyone toward the O.K. Corral.

It was sad to see the attack on the long-term cast member, and unnerving to see Jax underestimate an antagonist once again.

I will definitely miss good old Bobs, but in all fairness there was really nowhere left for his story to go (other than to perhaps give more terrible advice to Wendy).

Just when I think I'm immune to the brutality, Sons of Anarchy Season 7 Episode 7 comes along and proves me wrong.

Jan 2, 2015 | Rating: 4.6/5 | Full Review…

With the episode closing on Abel lying awake in his bed, the question, then, becomes: Is the story of Sons of Anarchy really going to hinge on who will tattle on grandma/Gemma first?

"We need to handle him with leverage, not blood," [Jax] says. While that sounds tidy and civilized, it's safe to assume that in Sons of Anarchy, it always ends in blood.

These beats have become so familiar by now that there isn't much drama left in them that doesn't revolve around shocking us with some creative new ugliness. There's no sense of creeping dread.

Anyone familiar with the tenacious brutality of August Marks (Billy Brown) knew it was only a matter of time before he punished SAMCRO for all of their extracurricular tomfoolery.

This is not an episode. It's a holding pattern. A delay tactic disguised as a narrative.

Jan 2, 2015 | Full Review…

Sons of Anarchy has been an emotional roller-coaster, like riding shotgun with someone who only slams on the pedals, and that's best displayed in this week's Gemma (UGH Gemma) storyline.
