Jax finally found out the whole truth about what Tara has been up to lately on "Sons of Anarchy." Nero tried to tell him, but he wouldn't hear it. Finally, Gemma put a bug in his ear he couldn't ignore. "Honey, it was all a lie. The pregnancy, the miscarriage...Tara wants out, Jax," she told him. "She’s filing for divorce, and she’s going to take your boys away from you.”
She then told Jax to find someone who would tell him the truth, knowing that he was unlikely to take her word for it. And so he did, cornering Tara's lawyer and getting to the bottom of things. After escaping his questions, the lawyer quickly called Tara. The episode ended with Tara singing to her son, a gun on her lap, as she waited for Jax to come home.
TV Fanatic's Matt Richenthal found the whole thing "engrossing to watch," but suspects that Tara may not need the gun. "Might Jax actually now realize the impossible corner his wife has been placed in and her desperation to get out of it by any means necessary?" he wondered. "Might the truth actually set him free? Yes. But Tara should probably keep the safety off just in case.”
“My guess is that the Tara/Jax confrontation will be put off a while," wrote The AV Club's Josh Modell. "It’s going to be a mess no matter what—let’s just hope that not everyone gets away unscathed.”
The tension is definitely on the rise on "Sons of Anarchy," Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
