The 9 Most Shocking Moments From the 'Sons of Anarchy' Finale

10 December 2014 3:40 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

FX’s motorcycle gang drama Sons of Anarchy aired its final episode on Tuesday night and showed club president Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) tying up loose ends for his family and his club before taking one final ride. ETonline takes a look at some of the most heartbreaking and surprising moments from "Papa’s Goods."

1. Jax Burns Everything

The episode opens with 10 minutes without any dialogue. Bruce Springsteen's "Adam Raised a Cain" plays as we see Jax preparing himself for his final ride, packing up his notebooks and kissing his sons goodbye. He rides to the clubhouse and sets fire to the club’s memories: old photos, his notebooks, and his father's manuscript: The Life and Death of Sam Crow: How the Sons of Anarchy Lost Their Way.

2. Taking Out The Irish

Jax's father and Sons of Anarchy founding member Jt believed that the Samcro's downfall began when the club starting trafficking and dealing »

Did Sons of Anarchy Pay Homage to The Shield in Its Series Finale?

10 December 2014 7:15 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Was Vic Mackey responsible for bringing Sons of Anarchy to an explosive end on Tuesday? Not really, but The Shield star Michael Chiklis played a major role in killing off central character Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) in the final seconds of the motorcycle drama. Chiklis - who currently stars on FX's American Horror Story - was the one driving the tractor-trailer that Hunnam collided with at the end of the seventh-season finale. This was Chiklis's second appearance on the series. He first showed up last week when his friendly character formed a quick connection with Gemma (Katey Sagal), even giving »

‘Sons of Anarchy’ Series Finale Caps Off Last Ride (Spoilers)

9 December 2014 11:02 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With its Shakespearean aspects, “Sons of Anarchy” in the beginning represented a tale about the battle for the soul of Jax, torn between the legacies of his father and stepfather, even if he was seldom its most interesting character. And from the opening strains of Bruce Springsteen’s “Adam Raised a Cain” and Jax’s graveside visit to the closing moments, the series finale hammered home the point, with about as much subtlety as a fork in the head.

In what has at times felt like two seasons crammed into one, series creator Kurt Sutter has methodically built toward the question of Jax’s fate, eliminating so many characters along the way – including a hat trick of major deaths in the penultimate chapter – that the finale risked becoming a trifle anticlimactic. Yet the question of whether Jax (Charlie Hunnam), having descended so far into darkness, could somehow find redemption, for others if not himself, »

How once-great 'Sons of Anarchy' ran off the road before the end

9 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It sounds strange to say about a show I haven't watched regularly in two years — and barely at all in its final season — and stopped consistently enjoying long before that, but there was a time when I loved "Sons of Anarchy" about as much as anything on TV. Back in the day, Kurt Sutter's biker "Hamlet" was one of the shows I most enjoyed watching, writing about, and debating with critics and fans alike. In its second season in particular, it was one of the very best shows on television (on that year's Top 10 list, I had it only a couple of spots behind "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad") and every bit the Next Great FX Drama you would expect from Sutter, who apprenticed on "The Shield" and penned many of that show's most memorable (and/or disgusting) moments. In retrospect, that second season — pitting Samcro against a band »

What Scares American Horror Story: Freak Show Star Michael Chiklis?

28 November 2014 6:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Michael Chiklis stars in FX's original series, American Horror Story: Freak Show but the 51-year-old actor still gets scared. He admits he has to read the scripts during the day, finds solace in playing his beloved drums, and a few other things when he chatted with People this week about "one last thing" ...Last time I was nervousAnything with the show. It's just completely unnerving. I have to read the scripts during the day. Angela [Bassett] makes fun of me; she's like, "You did The Shield - what are you all nervous about?"

8 WWE Factions You Totally Forgot Existed

17 November 2014 3:31 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

wwe.com

The Four Horsemen. The New World Order. D-Generation X. Evolution. The Shield. The Authority.

Numerous factions have made impacts on the wrestling industry that could be described as nothing less than absolutely enormous, some even changing the way business is done. These stables are the ones that will forever be etched in the minds of fans the world over, immortalized as part of video games, toy lines, t-shirts, and video packages long after the talent who gave rise to them have moved on.

This list is not about those groups, however. Rather, it’s about those that only exist, at best, in the back of your mind, assuming you ever heard of them to begin with. For many fans, this list may even be the first (and quite possibly the last) time they ever hear of these forgettable factions as we gather here to pay them some sort »

Amazon's 2015 pilots will premiere early next year, the company announced today. The newest slate has seven shows — four hourlong scripted series, two half-hour scripted series, and a half-hour kinda-sorta-documentary series. Behold:Cocked: An hourlong dark comedy about a gun-loving family whose liberal prodigal son returns. True Blood's Sam Trammell plays the son who swore he'd never come back to Virginia; Jason Lee plays the son who never left. Down Dog: A hunky yoga instructor's life starts to crumble in this half-hour sitcom. Paget Brewster plays his boss/ex, and Kris Kristofferson also appears. Mad Dogs: In the slightly higher-profile department, this hourlong dark comedy stars Steve Zahn, Billy Zane, Romany Malco, Michael Imperioli, and Ben Chaplin as a group of high-school friends who reunite in Belize — and then things get a little out of control. The show's based on a U.K. series, and The Shield »

31 October 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What will happen to NBC's “Space Race” reality show following Virgin Galactic Crash? NBC says it’s “gathering information on the situation” following the crash today of Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo spacecraft, which was to be the center of a reality competition from Richard Branson and Mark Burnett. Exactly one year ago, NBC announced the competition that would have regular people compete to go on Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo. NBC also announced plans to have “Today” cover the first flight of SpaceShipTwo with a three-hour live broadcast. CBS orders 'Limitless,' a TV drama sequel to the 2011 Bradley Cooper film The drama will pick up where the thriller left off. “Big Bang Theory” boss didn't expect the studio audience to keep last night's big cameo a secret "We knew that as far as the promos go," says showrunner Steve Molaro, "they were going to keep a lid on it »

Review: ‘Showrunners: The Art Of Running a TV Show’

30 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show” should probably be required viewing in film/TV studies classes, but as a mass-consumption documentary, it doesn’t quite pass the test. Much of that has to do with a lack of focus, inasmuch as it offers a snapshot of the exalted status of TV producers at an interesting time, but without a clear point of view or direction. The producers, obviously, are good storytellers, and there is something to be said — touched on here — about their shifting roles as TV has embraced an auteur quality. Still, the resulting doc finally feels like less than the sum of its anecdotes.

Irish filmmaker Des Doyle received funding from both the Irish Film Board and Kickstarter to assemble the project, which might explain a certain wide-eyed, rudimentary approach to the topic, from defining the term “showrunner” and the rungs of the writer-producer ladder to »

Kurt Sutter temporarily sidelined from 'Sons of Anarchy' series finale (Updated)

28 October 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Update: Kurt Sutter is back in action Wednesday, and Instagrammed a photo to prove it. Original post: As if there wasn't going to be enough drama in front of the camera during the filming of Sons of Anarchy's final episode, there was some behind-the-scenes on Monday, when creator Kurt Sutter had to excuse himself from the director's chair to have his appendix removed. Sutter, who also wrote the series finale set to air Dec. 9, tweeted a photo of his outed organ. So apparently this needed to come out. http://t.co/1Qk4qGl0P6 — kurt sutter (@sutterink) October 27, 2014 Fellow »
