MAJOR SPOILERS OF THE SONS OF ANARCHY FINALE BELOW! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!!
The Sons of Anarchy: The Official Collector’s Edition show book is set to go on sale December 10 has had portions of it leaked online via some store employees that took it upon themselves to snap pics of spoiler info of the series finale.
This is your final warning. If you keep reading you will have tonight's episode spoiled for you!
The portion in question was of an In Memoriam section that lists the deaths that happened in each season. Now the spoiler deaths that are listed are not surprising at all for those that have really been following the show. Along with the deaths we’ve encountered already (Juice, Bobby, Unser, and Gemma) there are a couple secondary and one main character deaths that are given away by the pic. Those being: Charlie Barosky, August Marks, and… Jax Teller.
Now Jax dying is not all that surprising. He’s gone from being the voice of reason to the MC, to wreaking havoc in the name of vengeance due to the murder of his wife Tara. Family was torn apart, business partnerships were destroyed, shaky truces were tossed aside, club members were lost, and the blood flowed like water. We all knew that Jax’s comeuppance was near and soon he’d have to pay for all the wrong he’d done in the name of a lie. However, I’m sure we’d have all like to see it play out on screen without overzealous bookstore employees putting the end results online.
Kurt Sutter was understandably pissed about the whole fiasco. This is his response to the leak.

"It has been brought to my attention that our SOA Collector’s Edition Book has been sent out a week early by some distributors and book outlets. This book contains details about the final episode of the series. This, my friends is a storyteller’s worst nightmare. I wanted this book to be a compliment to the show. It contains personal messages and photos from the cast, in-depth behind the scenes information and detailed breakdown of episodes. It’s a smart, well-conceived book that I was very excited for the fans to have. AFTER the motherfucking finale. There are a thousand fucking people I can blame. And I assure you, by the time I am done, my fucking basket will be filled with heads of incompetent cunts. But as far as the fans go, the burden is on me. I fucked up. It was my idea for the book, so ultimately, I am to blame. So if you received a book, I apologize. I ask that you not share your wrath or pain or opinion in social media so as to not spoil the experience of others. There is no excuse for utter ineptitude. It pains me that this will be the parting memory of some fans. I hope you all tune in for the finale. It plays much better than it reads.
Here’s to you Jax Teller.
