They all knew about the plan. The letter Jax sent Gemma said it was a vote to do it and he would never turn on his club like his dad did. As far as the deal there was the one Jax signed and the one Stahl signed the one that was ripped was Jax's deal. The one Stahl signed was given to their lawyer when Stahl got Jimmy. I don't know why they wouldn't tell Gemma maybe they did it to keep everything running smoothly.

Yeah it was their plan the whole time to have the b**ch offed, it said in the letter to Gemme that the club voted on it. They prolly kept it from Gemma to keep it to just the members of the club (old ladies dont get alot told to them anyway lol) but just keep it to the ppl that need to know. And they got the shorter sentence cause Stahl signed the deal and handed it over to SAMCRO's lawyer before they took em off. and they made it seem as if the IRA came and offed Stahl and then stole Jimmy (which is Chibs made that symbol on the pig car in Jimmy's blood).
Props. Makes sense now.
Best episode of the whole series. I like how they tied a lot of loose ends up instead of going the cheap route w/ another cliffhanger. I loved how Chibs gave Jimmy the "Irish Smile" or whatever it's called before k!lling him, and of course loved how Opie k!lled Stahl. Great scene as well with Jax and Clay laughing like some supervillains after they knew it was done.
This, though, is an unexpected turning point in the whole show. It seems with this finale Jax is straying away from his biological father and more towards Clay. It also seems he becomes more "evil" at the end. I'm guessing the next Season begins with them getting out of jail (since it'll be about a year before Season 4) and Jax maybe learning from Tara about what really happened to his dad.
Once again sucks that another season is over. Is it just me or did this one fly the f**k by? Seemed like it just started 3 episodes ago.
