Critic reviews for Some Strange Eruption

Kurt Sutter throws a curveball and gives the guys a short breather between massacres. And you have marvel at what good use Althea and Chibs make of the time.

[T]here isn't much "Some Strange Eruption" can offer to anybody, be it viewers looking for thrills, or an audience looking for a gritty drama with a bit of substance.

I was happy with this week's episode because I felt that the main plot was the most interesting that it has been so far this season.

I kind of hate how this was played, although it was enjoyable to see Jax get his ass handled for a little while.

Tonight's installment still brought some powerfully intriguing plot points into the mix.

Given how seemingly helpful and level-headed Gemma has been so far this season, her taking a turn for the murderous is both a bit of a twist and also perfectly within character.
