One of the first things they ask you in the ER is to rate your pain on a scale from 1 to 10. I’ve been asked this question hundreds of times and I remember once, when I couldn’t catch my breath and I felt like my chest was on fire, the nurse asked me to rate the pain. Though I couldn’t speak, I held up 9 fingers. Later, when I started feeling better, the nurse came in and she called me a fighter. “You know how I know?” she said, “You called a 10 a 9.” But that wasn’t the truth.
I didn’t call it a 9 because I was brave. The reason I called it a 9 was because I was saving my 10…and this was it.

"When your heart breaks, you got to fight like hell to make sure you are still alive. Because you are. And that pain you feel? That’s life. The confusion and fear? That’s there to remind you, that somewhere out there is something better, and that something is worth fighting for."
Jax’s old lady Tara has always been the character to whom viewers relate most: As long as this strong, intelligent woman is willing to stay in this outlaw world, it’s safe for us to play in it, too. In season 5, Siff had to simultaneously steel and unravel Tara to the point that we wanted her to get out — with or without Jax. Even as she lost her chance to flee in the finale, she could only show cracks. ”He’s crying,” she said, struggling to comprehend that Tara couldn’t go comfort her baby because she was being led away in handcuffs. In that moment, we also felt punished.—Mandi Bierly, Emmys: 15 Actresses We’re Rooting For, EW.com
