Storyline

Gemma and Nero get back together. Unser encounters Juice in Wendy's and offers to help him get out of Charming. In helping out TO in Lodi, SAMCRO accidentally kill two pastors from a powerful Piedmont church. Gemma fingers one of Lin's men as someone she saw leaving Tara's on the day of the murder, with Jax later torturing and killing him. As Lt. Althea Jarry (Annabeth Gish) takes over in the San Joaquin Sherriff's Office and is placed in charge of Tara and Roosevelt's murder investigations, Unser decides to grant Patterson's request to work as a part-time investigator. To ostensibly keep the peace, Jax offers to help the president of the Mayans' Stockton charter, Oscar El Oso Ramos (Ivo Nandi), deal with Barosky and to help Lin get some business from Connor. Secretly, however, he asks Connor to get him information on who Lin's customers are.

User Reviews

Starting to feel like the show should have wrapped up in season six.
2 October 2014 | by repojackSee all my reviews

Sons of Anarchy was like fine red wine: it just got better with age. Unfortunately, in this, its final season, it appears we're now past the expiration date. You never want your favorite series to end, especially one that that hooks you with drama as edgy as it has been, you want it to continue as long as it STAYS good.

The show has always been about Jax, the protagonist in a modern-day retelling of a classic Shakespearean tragedy. And part of the allure has been the connection the audience has with Jax, an anti-hero we root for as he strives to keep his moral compass as injustice after injustice pounds on his soul. His son. Opie. Now Tara.

In the final scene of the season 7 premiere, while epic in execution, we lose that connection as he executes some patsy fingered by the real killer. The emotional resonance we've felt in the past regardless of what gruesome deed he is doing just isn't there anymore, as he tortures and kills this poor guy. That being said, the montage of scenes set to a cover of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody is film-making at its best.

Show-runner Kurt Sutter's original music selection continues to a show highlight. In the season's second episode, he overlays "Till its Gone" by Yelawolf for the episode's ending montage which adds significant emotional gravitas to intertwined scenes. It's worth just to see these ending montages "until its gone."
