“The Separation of Crows” showed the Sons of Anarchy’s world truly being shaken by the fallout from Jax’s rampage. For all of his clever machinations, Jax has met a formidable foe in August Marks, one who also has incredible financial and political resources. The gangland violence that SAMCRO is used to in their tangles with other clubs won’t fly here, and Jax starts the episode demoralized about how to fight it. In the end, he also finds that the terms are not negotiable. Hit the jump if you thought for a moment that Abel murdered those birds.
