What Comes Around Goes Around

We all saw how explosive the season opened, with the school shooting. Fresh on the minds and in the hearts of many, this hit a nerve with viewers. Some were appalled that the shows creator Kurt Sutter would go there. In the wake of the tragedy at Newtown, and with all the senseless and disgusting events that have been happening more and more, the end of episode 1 left many with a sick feeling in the pit of their stomachs. Where is this going, and why would they approach this subject at all?

I will point out in interviews with Mr. Sutter, it was mentioned that this topic was something he's wanted to do for a very long time.  And I commend him for doing it. He had the balls to embrace the reality of the world we live in today and show it in a very organic way.

Why I labeled this article "What Comes Around Goes Around," has bearing from this week's episode. You see a father who just lost his son in a horrific tragedy seek vengeance. Someone has to pay for whats happened to his little boy. Was he right to want to kill those whose hands are tainted? As a parent what would you do? You even see Nero take the blame for something he wasn't responsible for, in order for his child to have a better life. Tara hanging over the edge, doing things we never thought her capable of, so that her kids may get a chance at a better life.

Everyday we're faced with the harsh reality of life, and need to make those tough decisions...what would yours be?
