We’re leaving together,
But still it’s farewell
And maybe we’ll come back,
To earth, who can tell ?
I guess there is no one to blame
We’re leaving ground. Will things ever be the same again? It’s the final countdown…
YES, the countdown has begun. THE FINAL season of SONS OF ANARCHY. OMG OMG OMG who will die??
I know it’s just a TV show, and there is no socially redeeming value to it whatsoever; unless you consider misogynistic, drug dealing gun running racist activity as socially redeeming, but damn it’s at it’s ending!
Now if you don’t know about SOA then…well…let me try to explain (if I lose you there is always google.)
Back in 2008 a young man by the name of Jax (Jackson) Teller is about to become a father. Nothing unusual about that, it happens every day. Yes, it does, but how many young men come across their deceased father’s manifesto? A manifesto that will send that young man into a soul searching struggle between what he knows is right and a way of life?
Jax is heir to the Sons Of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original (SAMCRO for short). His father John Teller along Piermont “Piney” Winston founded the club, after returning from the Vietnam War where they served as paratroopers. The club didn’t start out running drugs or guns, it was simply formed out of social rebellion by men who no longer wanted to live by society’s rules. They wanted freedom. Of the original nine we mostly hear about John or JT, Clay Morrow (the M in TM,) Keith McGee, and Otto Moran, (played by the creator Kurt Sutter) Long sordid stories, along the ride, Gemma, Jax’s mother ended up married to Clay, after the plot and kill JT. Jax’s ex wife wendy gives birth to Abel who is born with ‘the family flaw’, a heart condition. Enter Dr. Tara Knowles, a pediatric surgeon, former high school sweetheart of Jax now working in Charming. Of course the talented Dr. Knowles is able to save Jax’s son, but uh Dr Tara has troubles of her own.
After leaving Charming and breaking Jax’s heart, Tara becomes a doctor and meets ATF agent Josh Kohn. A stalker who follows Tara back to Charming, breaking the restraining order she has in place and well essentially ends his career. After saving Abel’s life, Tara and Jax begin to heal the fractured relationship and Tara ends up telling him about Kohn. When Kohn is arrested (we knew it was gonna happen,) he is sent packing from town. Of course he doesn’t leave, did you really think he would? He sneaks back into town breaks into Tara’s home and attempts to rape her. Tara is however one smart cookie and is able to get Kohn’s gun and shoots him in the stomach and of course calls her old flame for help. Kohn is not a smart man, he knows Jax and Tara’s relationship is starting again, and he calls Tara a “biker whore.” Now what man stands around and lets a lady be called that…NOT Jax, he shoots Kohn in the head. Talk about a splitting headache.
Okay…are you sure you want me to keep telling you about this show? Seriously it would be faster if you just google it. Anyway after ups and downs, lots of family squabbles, inhouse beatings and deaths, (in season six, Jax killed Clay…for a lot of reason, killing his father the least of them,) we end up with Tara tired of the lies, the blood shed, and the loss of her career deciding to divorce Jax, (yes they married and had a son Thomas) and taking the boys out of Charming. Oh did I forget to mention that Tara is also looking serving some time for the murder of Pamela Toric? Yeah I guess you’ll just to watch.
Gemma, Jax’s mom and matriarch isn’t about to let that happen, and when she gets word that Tara has cut a deal, well she flips. SOOOOOOoooooooooo, finally here we are at the beginning of season seven…the final season. Clay is dead, it seems all of the clubs enemies are dead, SAMCRO is moving to legitimate business dealing, of course Jax is looking at some jail time…he gave himself up to keep Tara and his sons together, but maybe things will work out.
Okay not so well for Tara, who Gemma killed…or Eli Roosevelt who was about to report Gemma for killing Tara…or Juice who killed Eli.. crap and what about Jax? With Tara gone, and no real paper work supporting him giving himself up for some of his crimes, looks like he will walk. But who does he trust, with his best friend Opie gone, (yeah you’ll just have to watch,) and Tara gone, he’s lost his compass, he doesn’t know what to believe or who to trust…what happens when he finds out dear mommy killed his wife?
OMG…what happens????? But most importantly…WHAT WILL I WATCH WHEN THIS ENDS??
WARNING SOA IS RATED FOR MATURE AUDIENCE… IT IS VIOLENT AND BLOODY… its about drug running gun running racist activity what part of that doesn’t imply bloody?
