Katy Segal & Kurt Sutter's Amazing Technicolor Ego Trip
12 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sure the violence has been ratcheted up this season and that's kept it bearable amongst the seemingly endless, often pointless, twists and turns but the 500 pound gorilla in the series that makes it less and less enjoyable with each passing season if not episode is front and center again.

Katey Sagal's character, Gemma, has become one of the most unlikeable, contemptuous and utterly contrived ever to appear (let alone remain) in any TV series. One underlying themes of the series from the outset is that betrayal of the club and/or of Jax ultimately leads to death but oh no not for this character ... no matter how flagrant or openly she schemes and deceives, no matter how many lies she's caught in, no matter much damage her treachery does nobody seems to notice or care. Her ability to inexplicably and effortlessly evade the consequences everyone else must eventually face is mind boggling. Since the middle of season 5 I find myself tuning in for no other reason than the hope I'll get to see this singularly repugnant person "get hers" in the most horrifically violent and painful way imaginable as one would reasonably expect anyone like her in real life would have long ago ... but alas it never happens.

Indeed, one redeeming aspect of the season 6 finale is that it confirms my long held and growing belief that the last few seasons and the one rumored to remain have become little more than a vehicle for Kurt Sutter to preen his wife's ego and keep the illusion of her otherwise non-existent career alive ... indeed her next project is of course one of her husband's.

To say this episode has squelched any enthusiasm for a final season 7 would be a grand understatement.
