So glad I'm not alone in being happy that Tara died. So over her.
Like London said, IRL I'd be all about Tara... but on the show, I hated her. Whinging, contributed little to the story (other than being a whinging, whining obstacle every step of the way), etc etc. I just cannot stand her.
I am, however, completely in love with Gemma. I do not even care that she's a b*tch... I can see she'd be a horrible person to have to have in your life, but I adore her anyway as a character. I think she's an awesome character.
Jax... is a jerk. I don't feel sorry for him at all. He killed heaps of people, many who didn't deserve it. So really, meh. He deserves a bit of crap going wrong in his life for all the bad stuff he's done.
As for Juice, I think all he's ever wanted is to belong and a part of a group. Jax pretty much told him his number was up... Gemma had always been a bit of a mother to him, so it figures that he'd save her like that. She's probably all that remains of his "family," at this point. Jax is a d*ck for wanting to off Juice though - why didn't he make Happy do his dirty work? Happy is the one who is mentally tough enough to murder innocent women and not give it a second though. Juice was spiraling out of control, so you give him even more reason to go off the rails? Good choice, idiot.
I am sad about Nero though. I love Nero. I hate that he got dragged back into the life he left behind because of the MC.
