Why the video of this SONS OF ANARCHY love scene inspired me
I’m a big SONS OF ANARCHY fan, no make that huge. So when I thought of the more tender moments between Hailey and Jilly in GAME ON, this scene with Opie and Lyla immediately came to mind.
Opie’s a big guy, just like Jilly. By watching this clip from season two episode ten, I was able to visualize how gentle such a hulk of a man could be with a woman. He has to be careful, not knowing his own strength, and something about that, just hit home to me in terms of Jilly’s character—a 6’8″, 225 lbs. baseball player who throws over 100 mph.
Pitching phenom Bruce “Jilly” Gillette has a hard time talking to women. His hulking presence of tattoos and muscles is what makes him an intimidating closer on the mound, yet off the field, he’s painfully shy, uncomfortable in his own skin.
Desperate to revamp his loner image, the New York Kings hold a dream date contest, granting the lucky winner a night on the town with their surly reliever, doing whatever it takes to force Jilly out of his comfort zone.
Hailey Halpert enters the contest on a whim, looking for answers as to why her high school relationship with Jilly hit the skids. Now she’s a popular romance author writing under a pen name, and her reappearance in Jilly’s life is no accident. It turns out that her novels are all about the sexy players on the Kings, and Jilly has no clue that he’s about to become her new leading man.
