It’s a shame that after such an exciting run of episodes, Sons of Anarchy’s otherwise excellent fourth season came to a close with a whimper rather than a bang – with an underwhelming finale which failed to tie-up many of the plotlines and character arcs satisfyingly.
Maybe it was inevitable that the finale couldn’t possibly have satisfied everyone – especially with so many crucial storylines – but the episode felt oddly anti-climatic, even failing to match the drama and suspense of the penultimate episode. The season has been building numerous threats to Samcro, only for the final episode to crumble under pressure and shy away, seemingly through fear of damaging the likelihood of future seasons.
Nonetheless, even as a lackluster season finale, To Be (Act Two) was a decent episode with several stand-out moments which prevented the final show from being an outright disappointment. Best of »

Sons of Anarchy continues Season 4 with Episode 4.06: With an X airing Tuesday, October 11 at 10 Pm Et on FX. Actresses Winter Ave Zoli, who portrays Lyla, and Kristen Renton, who plays Ima, recently held a conference call to discuss the upcoming episode of this hit biker gang series. Here's what they had to say below.
Kristen, have you had conversations with Kurt Sutter that your character somehow will have some sort of a redemptive moment? She's always been the bad girl, will she ever see the light, or is she being run off, if you can elaborate on where your character is going for the fans.
Kristen Renton: Good question. I have not spoken to Kurt about what will be transpiring later on in the coming seasons or anything like that. I feel like she's the main bad girl of this show and I don't think that he's going to change that. »

So firstly something of an apology is due. For those following the coverage of Season 3 currently airing in the U.K on Five U.S, you’ll have noticed the reviews being mysteriously absent from the site over the last few weeks. Thanks to Channel 5s scheduling clashing with the U.S premier of the brand new season, the decision was made to focus on the new episodes rather than a season that first aired almost over a year ago.
With that out of the way, so begins our weekly coverage of FX’s brand new season of their superb biker drama – with Samcro’s prodigal son Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) planning to finally leave the club for once and for all. A mix of macho action and almost Shakespearian drama, Sons Of Anarchy continues to be an excellent show with gripping storyline and great performances »

After the sheer intensity of last weeks opening episode, it was a relief that things were a little bit quieter this week. Well, as quiet as Sons of Anarchy can be. It still featured the usual macho action, brutal torture and murderous Ira priests. Actually that last one is new, but the introduction of Father Ashby (James Cosmo) certainly fits well into the show.
His introduction in the opening of the episode, led the way for more scenes in Belfast, with Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) son Abel now in the hands of Cameron’s (Jamie Mcshane) cousin, Maureen. We discover that Father Ashby, has close ties with both the Ira and Samcro, and is disappointed with Cameron’s handling of the situation. After the Ira are informed that Agent Stahl (Ally Walker) and the Atf are responsible for Edmond’s murder, Ashby marks Cameron to be executed. »

Aspiring filmmakers Adam (Kohn) and David (Basis) travel halfway across the Us to shoot a documentary on former reality star turned reporter Meredith Phillips, played in meta fashion by former reality star Meredith Phillips. Turning the pair down, the duo think all is lost – that is until Phillips is given a new assignment: uncover the mystery behind the death of a pair of twins in their family’s barn. Without a crew, Phillips ropes in the two young filmmakers with the promise that they’ll get their documentary along the way. So the trio head off to the site of the murders, which like any good horror movie is a creepy small town in the middle of Nowheresville, USA…
