Really this just seems to be a set up issue. We see more of Jax and Opie as kids. Plus the Sons dealing how to get rid of the heroin they were recently given.
Clay goes to check on the guy that gave them the smack,and finds his home ransacked and lots of blood. While at the same time Jax and Opie are getting trashed and hanging with a friend. Jax starts to talk a little bit too much about club business. Then has a violent outburst and beats the fuck out of the friend.
I need to find out if this is going to be a limited series or a ongoing series. It is reading like it is a ongoing.
