The priest was right and jax is going to be thinking about this. Look at what happened with tara. Jax wasn't able to push tara away from the lifestyle even though he gave it a hell of a shot, and now he will probably be wondering if he can push abel away too come the time. I think jax might send abel away with someone if he doesn't leave the kid with his foster family anyway. Who knows what could happen then. Gemma might do something dangerous if that goes down. Three more episodes!
And I still love the irish themed remix to the opening titles.
The thing is Jax has waaaaaay too much to lose right now and has to decide on one thing he can accept living without. If he walks away from Abel because he believes what his father wrote as well as seen where the club is headed and doesn't want that for his son, then he needs to get Jimmy to save his mom. But then of course you have a situation which you've already described with Gemma not accepting losing her grandson and possibly doing something nasty. She might even tell Jax about Tara. I think the final episodes of this season will be about Jax finding Jimmy before the IRA does. Jax'll save his mom but for sacrificing his son their relationship will be poisoned.
Bottom line is Jax cannot lose his mom, son and Tara because of the club, it will literally kill him.
