7. Gemma Goes Home

Season 3, Episode 1: "So"
Gemma was on the lam and hiding out from the cops at the end of the second season, but after she's heard her mother has passed, she risks capture to visit her Alzheimer's-stricken father (played by Hal Holbrook). Gemma is painted throughout SOA as a proud, defiant woman. When back in her dad's house, however, she's anything but a tough, take-no-shit motorcycle mama. The woman who strikes fear in the hearts of Feds and bikers alike is just a frightened kid again, in a place she doesn't want to be, with a parent who barely recognizes her. The show's resident Mom-monster has become humanized.
