Sons of Anarchy Season 7 hasn't even arrived on our screens yet, but already fans of the show are clamoring to know how the story of Jax and SAMCRO will end.
Most specifically, they're curious to know whether the rather violent and disturbing finale of season 6 will set the tone for the final season. In that episode we saw Tara (Maggie Siff) being brutally murdered by her mother-in-law Gemma (Katey Sagal). However, are we likely to see more of these kind of deaths in season 6? Well, creator Kurt Sutter has talked about what he feels is his job as the shows chief writer:
I don't think anything we've ever done has been inorganic [or] unbelievable in terms of heightened circumstances and the players involved. It's not that my goal is to disturb people, but I want that reaction when beloved characters go away. I want people to be upset. When Opie was killed, people [expletive] hated me. They didn't stop watching, but they were upset -- they had lost a friend. That to me means you're writing characters that are relatable, believable and people want to show up for each week. Which means, quite frankly, I'm doing my job.
In a previous statement, producer Paris Barclay stated that there wouldn't be a shortage of death in season 7, suggesting at least one death per episode. However, he obviously didn't go into detail about who might be occupying a body bag by the season finale.
One big question, of course, will be whether the show's frontman, Jax Teller, will also be of this mortal coil by the end of the show. Charlie Hunnam, who plays Jax, recently revealed a bit about his characters mental state:
Jax is in a very schizophrenic state. He's obviously very sad and vulnerable and broken with this huge amount of revenge and anger in his heart.
Could this state of mind end up getting him killed?
Sons of Anarchy returns on September 9th.
Who do you think is most likely to die in Season 7 of Sons of Anarchy?
