As the 7th and final season of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ revs up towards it’s final ride there has been a lot of leaked info and speculation.
To help you figure it all out News For Shoppers will break it down episode by episode, teling you what we know and what we think it all means for the final ride
What we know:
-Executive producer Paris Barclay tweeted that tonight’s episode is: “gonna please many, depress some and infuriate a few.”
-The title of the episode: “Faith and Despondency” refers to an Emily Jane Bronte poem, of which the last stanza starts: ” Well hast thou spoken, sweet trustful child! and wiser than thy sire.”
So what does it all mean? Well, based on all of this I’m guessing the please part means we’re gonna finally start to see a payoff and the infuriate part refers to Gemma (Katey Sagal).
I think this is the episode where Abel finally says something, especially now that we know the meaning of the episode title.
He is much smarter than hid dad- since he knows who really killed Tara. Abel’s knowledge is also depressing as that truth is slowly destroying Abel.
I just don’t think he is going to tell Jax (Charlie Hunnam). For some reason I feel he is going to tell Nero (Jimmy Smits), who will then have to confront Gemma.
This would also be an interesting play on the words faith and despondency too, as Nero has kept his faith in Gemma through everything and would be quite despondent to learn what she did.
It would also set up a heart-breaking scene if Gemma kills him to protect herself.
I also think Unser (Dayton Callie) is going to figure out her secret but isn’t going to tell anyone yet, which will definitely piss off lots of people- almost everyone would know but Jax.
What we know:
-The description for episode 11, titled “Suits of Woe” is: “Jax comes face-to-face with an ugly truth.”
Now, there are a lot of ways to interpret this, but the 2 most obvious to me are that either Jax learns what Gemma did or Jax learns part of the truth: that the Chinese didn’t murder Tara and he waged a war and lost Bobby for nothing.
I believe this is the episode where he learns what Gemma did and confronts everything he has done. Rumors have been flying that this is “the episode” and I agree.
Show creator Kurt Sutter has said he won’t leave fans hanging, which means there needs to be 2 or 3 episodes to watch this all play out- making episode 11 the perfect episode for the big reveal.
What we know:
-The summary of this episode, titled: ” Red Rose” says: “with tensions mounting and truth’s finally revealed Jax must make the ultimate decision.”
Again, while this is open to interpretation I think this synopsis refers to one of 2 specific events: the issue with the Indian Hills chapter or Jax’s decision on what to do with his life, specifically his mom and the club.
Form the beginning of the show Jax has always struggled with being an outlaw and family man. and I think Gemma’s betrayal and all she has created will make Jax decide once and for all what he wants
I believe Jax will walk away from the club. Once Jax knows what actually happened he will be beyond broken and will finally choose a life outside the MC. There is a picture circulating of Jax on JT’s bike with no president patch, which supports this theory (see below).
That picture can also be as a result from the Indian Hills issue. They are supposed to meet and decide Jax’s fate in regards to shooting Jury. Could be they make him resign as president.
As for Gemma, in the end I don’t think he will kill her. I believe she will end up being the bag lady we’ve seen appear from time to time- a fate worse than death for Gemma.
If Gemma does die I think it will be at the hands of either Chibs (Tommy Flanagan), who would do it for Jax or Nero, in the heat of the moment.
-What we know:
The final episode is almost impossible to predict, but again we do have some clues as there are pictures of Jax confronting August Marks on what appears to be courthouse steps (see below).
I think Jax will confront Marks, but based on the pics I don’t think he will kill him.
If you look at Jax’s face in those pics he looks upset, but resigned, which I interpret to mean he lets him live.
I think he is tired of all the blood shed at this point and will be more concerned about his boys- as he should be.
Even though he lives this is far from a happy ending as has been irrevocably damaged, as has Jax, who lost just about everyone who has ever mattered to him.
