SOA took about 3 episodes before I really got into it this year. I'm still excited about it, but I'm with you on Jax. At this point, I am more worried about Tig than what's going to happen to Jax
Sutter has a knack for bringing it around. I'm kind of thinking it's going to end with Nero, Wendy and the kids. There were two nods in the last 4 episodes. I hate to speculate, I've been enjoying the ride so far.
