Kurt Sutter and company were building up to quite the season finale for Sons of Anarchy last night. Too bad that by the end of the evening the excitement had the air blown out of it.
The CIA connection came out of nowhere, but gave it a twist. It also hasten the exit of FBI agent Potter. Is there anyone who liked that character? Not that we were suppose to like him, but he turns out to be a bit more sympathetic by the time he departs.
Jax is between a rock and hard place. He needs to kill Clay. If he does, the Irish won't play ball and the CIA will destroy the club. By the end of the episode he has fire in his eyes. He is the new president. Clay lays in his hospital bed. But wait, that's not where the episode leaves us. The focus is turned to Tara vs Gemma. Not that I would mind another season of Katey Sagal knocking it out of the park as she consistently does each year. (Why is she not nominated for an Emmy????) Has Tara become Dr. Gemma? According to Sutter, look for Wendy (Jax-ex) to factor the duo into a trio next season. Could be what brings Gemma and Tara together.
Not exactly the ending I was waiting for, but we'll see SAMCRO in September.....
