, Ohio – We knew the final season of "Sons of Anarchy" was headed down this road. We just didn't know it would take this long to get there.

You are watching: When does jax find out gemma killed tara

Eventually, Jax Teller had to find out his mother, Gemma, was the source of all his problems. Tuesday's episode, "Suits of Woe," finally set those inevitabilities into motion.

The episode begins with Jax and Gemma trying to make sense of things. Jax is trying to figure out why Abel told him that Gemma killed Tara. Gemma is sitting at table apologizing to the imaginary ghost of Tara.

Jax finally gets some answers. Wendy reveals that Gemma was harboring Juice to protect him from the club. Jax, trying to bottle up his rage, heads to Unser for more answers.

Unser tells Jax that the member of Lin's Triad that Gemma said killed Tara was actually in jail the night of the murder. Unser agrees to help Jax get a face-to-face with Juice in prison.

Juice is in the process of giving himself a pep talk. "This gets done," he says to himself. Juice finally gets his chance to follow the club's orders when he's put in room alone with Lin.

Lin admits it wasn't Jury that told him SAMCRO was stashing the guns. It was the club's former business partner and ex-cop Charles Barosky (That was kind of obvious). Juice follows through on his promise to Jax and kills Lin.

With Jax now fired up, Unser seems to be laying all his cards out on the table. He tells Gemma that Jax knows she protected Juice. "Your son is determined to get to the truth," Unser tells Gemma, who goes into panic mode.

It may be time for Jax to panic as well. It turns out the other chapters of "Sons of Anarchy" aren't buying Jax's explanation for killing Jury. If Jax can't prove Jury was a rat (which he can't), things could come down to a "man vote." Whatever that is.

Jax heads to the prison to meet with Juice, who reveals what Lin had to say. In what is the tensest moment of Season 7, Jax asks Juice why Gemma would protect him from the club.

Jax tells Juice what Abel said about "grandma" killing his "second mommy." This is Charlie Hunnam in full, power-acting mode, using the pain in Jax's eyes to ask questions he doesn't' really want answers to.

With both men in tears, Juice finally offers Jax the truth about Gemma killing Tara. "The way she killed her, so brutal," Juice says.

Jax tells Juice about Bobby's death, which was a direct result of the club's mistaken beef with Lin and August Marks. Jax then thanks Juice for telling him the truth. At the end of one of the best scenes in "Sons of Anarchy" history, Jax informs Juice he will soon meet with Mr. Mayhem.

Jax sends out the members of SAMCRO to look for Gemma, but Chucky covers for her. Jax heads back to TM, where Unser provokes him into a fight. Jax slugs Unser, which leads the sheriff to put out an all-points bulletin on Jax.

Next, the sheriff and Unser head to see Juice, hoping he'll tell them what Jax knows. But Juice isn't much help. He's a man now resigned to his own fate.

Running out of options, Gemma goes to Nero for help. While they're together, Jax calls Nero and tells him what Gemma did to Tara. The news crushes Nero. Even he doesn't want to help Gemma now.

On her way presumably out of town, Gemma stops by to see Abel. She gives him his grandfather's "Sons" ring and tells his teacher (Courtney Love) to take care of him.

After eluding the cops, Jax sits down with his club members to tell them Gemma killed Tara. Everything SAMCRO did this season has all been based on a lie. Jax takes ownership of the mistake and says he'll do whatever he can to make things right. Though, that may not even be possible at this point.

"I'm sorry the family I was given has created so much chaos in the family I've chosen," Jax says (Great line).

Jax soon finds himself alone with Nero, who suggests it may be time for Jax to fulfill Tara's wish and leave SAMCRO behind. Nero then tries to convince Jax that killing his mother is a wound that would "swallow him up." Maybe it already has.
