"It’s been a long time coming (for the UK) but the first episode of the eagerly awaited third season of Sons of Anarchy was certainly worth the wait. Abel's kidnapping has the Sons reeling - especially Jax, whose grief sends him into deeper turmoil over his future with the MC, whilst Gemma, on the run after being framed for murder, is hit with some unexpected news from her past…

Starting slowly with the inevitable hangover from the second season’s chilling climax, we follow the Sons as they try to regroup. Outstanding casting aside, their search for clues to Abel’s disappearance reveals many mouth-watering storylines: Clay struggling to keep Gemma safe but deciding not to tell her about Abel’s kidnapping as he tries to work out a way of locating him, dead or alive; Gemma refusing to stay hidden when, unknown to Clay and Jax, she discovers the truth; Hale worrying about becoming the new Chief; Tara’s blossoming relationship with the deliciously devilish Agent Stahl; Tig’s on-going torment over the death of Donna, or Jax himself, with so many problems it’s impossible to list here.

There’s certainly some choice action (on their bikes, finally) to compliment the drama, and a ferocious finale that sums up this programme perfectly – explosive, powerful and utterly compelling. And yet, the inevitable trip to Ireland worries me. Can the Irish charm as much as Charming itself? I guess we shall have to wait and see (everyone else has already done so) but nonetheless, welcome back boys and girls, the pleasure is all ours."
