*SPOILER ALERT! This post contains major spoilers from Season 7 of Sons of Anarchy! Read at your own risk!*
Shortly after Abel (Teller, Evan/Ryder Londo) overhears Gemma (Teller-Morrow, Katey Sagal) talking to baby Thomas (Teller, Victoria/Sophia Markov) about Tara (Teller, Maggie Siff), trying to convince herself that her committing the murder of Tara was just an accident, there’s a scene where Gemma and Abel were talking about an incident at Abel’s school. Abel claims hitting another kid at school was just an accident, and when Gemma asks him if he knows what an accident is, his cutting reply was “Do you?”.
It was simply one of the most pivotal moments of the season – that was Abel’s way of trying to figure out how and why Grandma had killed Mommy. He wasn’t supposed to have heard Gemma talking to Thomas about Tara’s death, he wasn’t supposed to have known that Gemma killed Tara. The scene is heart wrenching, as you can see the pain and dispair in Abel as he’s having this conversation with Gemma.
Rewatch the harrowing scene below, and tell us in the comments what your reaction was when you first watched the episode. Did your heart just bleed for Abel, knowing what pain he was suffering with due to Gemma’s actions? Do you think Gemma realized at that point that he knew who had really killed his mommy?
