Sons of Anarchy - Season 7, Episode 2 - Rotten Tomatoes

Toil and Till



Critic Consensus: Sons takes a chance on subtlety over slaughter and it pays off in one of the show's most Shakespearean episodes, "Toil and Till."

Critic reviews for Toil and Till

The second episode of the last Sons of Anarchy season didn't max out the potential body count. There's plenty of ammo left in the season and a name of every bullet.

[A] depressingly rote, repetitive hour that already feels like the show's running out of meaningful story to tell.

At best, "Toil and Till" continually places Unser in a more central role than his usual sagely blundering.

Katey Sagal's performances are almost always wonderfully understated, and she gave one of my favorite line readings ever [in Toil and Till].

[It] was one of the most Shakespearean episodes yet, by showing how Gemma's lies... have instead created layers upon layers of mistakes and traps that Jax is walking right in to, and... he has reset the cycle of violence against another man's loved one.

"Toil and Till" was a very good episode of Sons of Anarchy, and I like where things are headed.
