After 7 phenomenal seasons the day ‘Sons of Anarchy’ fans have been waiting for and dreading all at the same time is finally here: the last and final episode of the acclaimed FX drama, titled ‘Papa’s Goods” airs Tuesday at 10 P.M. (EST) on FX.
The episode is expected to run over 2 hours and will be immediately followed by the ‘Anarchy Afterword’ after-show.
Kurt Sutter, the show’s brilliant creator is still fuming about the screw-up that leaked over 1,000 copies of the ‘Sons of Anarchy: Collector’s Edition Book’ and was going to cancel his appearance on the after-show, but has confirmed via Twitter he will be there.
Sutter tweeted that he got a text from Tommy Flanagan (Chibs) which served as a reminder to him that it’s not just his show, it’s the fans show too, so he will be there along with Charlie Hunaam (Jax) and the rest of the cast to: “try and close this ride with some dignity and gratitude”.
The final episode is expected to be epic, as it will revolve around Jax’s quest to right all the wrongs he did thanks to Gemma’s (Katey Sagal) lie and make the club fit his father’s vision (which he has been trying to do since the show started).
According to the previews it appears the fans, along with Jax will finally get to see what was in JT’s manuscript and find out if Jax makes his father’s words come to life now that there is no one to stop him.
CC H Pounder, who played D.A. Patterson last season is also back and it looks like Jax tells her everything about Tara’s death and enlists her help to make sure: “the bad guys lose”.
There are also pictures circulating of Jax ambushing Marks on the steps of the courthouse- so it seems Jax is truly tying up loose ends.
Although some feel there is no coming back after killing his own mother, many fans still have hope he will survive.
Which leads us to the question that is on every fans mind: is he getting his house in order because he is going to die or is he cleaning things up before he either goes to jail or takes off with his boys?
That’s a question we will all know the answer to in about 24 hours, but however it plays out I know I for one will forever miss this crazy place called Charming.
So thank you, Mr. Sutter, for letting us into this emotionally complex and thought-provoking world that gripped our hearts and minds for the past 7 seasons- it has truly been one hell of a ride.
