Episode 5 of ‘Sons of Anarchy’, airs tonight (Tuesday, October 7) at 10 P.M. on FX and it looks like the war between the clubs is about to explode.
Based on the promo video for the episode, titled “Some Strange Eruptions”, Nero (Jimmy Smits) finds himself in the thick of this mess as Lin Triad leader Henry demands he bring Jax to him- or die.
Those who miss the episode can also catch the re-run, which will be shown immediately following at 11:20 P.M. (EST), or find it on demand usually within 24 hours of the original broadcast.
*Spoiler Alert* The rest of this article contains information about last weeks episode, so stop reading if you haven’t seen it yet.
Poor Nero never really wanted to be back in the game but it looks like he’s all the way in now- whether he likes it or not.
Thanks to Gemma (Katey Sagal) and her lies involving Tara’s death the club is on the brink of a full-blown war with the Chinese (and almost everyone else) and Nero, unfortunately, is caught in the middle.
Normally Nero tries to stay neutral but after the brutal massacre at Diosa last week , where 16 of the girls were viciously gunned downed-including Colette, Nero might not be so calm, or accommodating.
In the promo clip he is seen arguing with Jax, questioning the validity of the information pointing to the Chinese being involved in Tara’s murder.
In the next clip Nero is seen slugging Jax in the face- so I guess the honeymoons over.
There are also clips of the club and the Chinese facing off, but it is unclear if Nero brought Jax there or not.
What is clear is that things are definitely going to get better before they get worse.
What I found interesting is that Jax tells Nero that Gemma is the one that pointed the finger at Henry’s club, so Nero may end up being the “unlikely source” that tells Jax the truth about Gemma.
