From the start, fans of Kurt Sutter’s ultraviolent, uber-addictive FX motorcycle drama Sons of Anarchy have been as devoted as a real-life band of bikers, hashing out unexpected deaths, curious casting (Lea Michele?), unfathomable Emmy snubs … and, well, those unfortunate few moments when it actually seemed like Jax himself, Charlie Hunnam, might do the Fifty Shades of Grey flick (whew!).
Now the day that SAMCRO fans have been dreading is here, as the show reaches the end of its bloody ride to tonight’s three-hour series finale, “Papa’s Goods,” written and directed by Sutter. And with the Sons of Anarchy leadership bearing down, betrayals in the SAMCRO ranks and other ugly revelations forcing Jax to make his most brutal decision in seven seasons chock full of them, it’s safe to assume that Sutter will give the series — like so many of its characters — a memorable end. And the silver — or shall we say chrome — lining is, Sutter fans won’t have to wait long for their next bloody good time. He’s already at work on his new FX series, The Bastard Executioner, set in late-medieval England.
The three-hour series finale of Sons of Anarchy airs Dec. 9 at 10pm ET on FX.
