I dont know about that story line just yet. I think Jax has something up his sleeve. And I dont think Pope is going to get off so easy.

I think what Tara did wasn't really out of character. I dont know how she could have foreseen Otto getting one arm loose with the help of the nurses. And I think Jax was willing to let her do this because it was the only way to get the RICO case out of the way and thus get their lives back on track.
