Oh great, spoiler tags... I just wanted to know what happened? Lol, guess I'm waiting for bluray...
I stopped watchign SOA after season two because I graduated and got a job working nights. But I've since gone back and watched the first two seasons on Netflix this past week and have now gotten to the first couple season three episodes.
I'm sad to post this but, it's that time of the year again, for the last time ever!
So am I the only one still watching SOA? Every week I am excited to sit down and catch the show, but unfortunately I think the final season has been the weakest as of yet. Only a few more episodes left, so hopefully something changes!
WIll wiat for the last season to come out on DVD and wil then smash through it in a few nights.
Stopped watching 10 minutes from the end of season 6. I thought Jemma's actions were too far and unnecessary to write and didn't want to watch any more.
So Gemma killing the woman who framed her for killing a baby that never existed, tried to send Jax to prison and divorce him behind his back, tried to destroy the MC, and tried to either take the boys or give custody to Wendy, THAT death was unecessary to write; But Kozik being blown to pieces (on camera) by a landmine was all cool? Or senselessly killing off a major character like Opie just so Jax would, for whatever reason, still be president after Clay instead of killing off Tig who started the whole thing and was the sole reason one of the sons had to die in the first place? This entire show is full of unnecessary writing, but Gemma killing Tara seemed completely justifiably written, especially considering her past and lack of knowing that Jax made a deal with the DA instead of Tara.
I agree. It has seemed pretty week and each preview of the next week looks like nothing that you want answered will be. Just my
Didnt want to ruin it for the people who havent seen this season but I am really curious to what jax will do at the end. Kurt sutter said in the begin of the season that Jax will find himself becoming the reaper and just a few episodes ago where jury talked about how jax's dad wrote about the club and how he potentially died by killing himself, I want to know if Jax will see that and take the "coward" way out. My main questions is who or what will lead jax to the truth of Tara and will Gemma admit to it all seeing all the death that has been caused by her actions.
I get Tara's reasoning for doing what she did. Gemma is poisonous and with the MC is so dangerous to so many innocent people, but the MC always comes first, for some stupid, cyclical reason. Tara was trying to get her babies away from that environment, so they wouldn't be dragged into it like Jax was, despite JT wanting to get the MC clean or get out.
Opie's killing was lead by characters you weren't meant to like and was meant to be a sacrifice and a tragedy you could rally with the MC over. Tara's death was just inhuman outburst which could have been completely avoided by a good argument. Plus, Gemma could have killed Tara in a way which wasn't so needlessly grotesque. I still feel sick thinking about it.
Horrible horrible HORRIBLE show, really frustrating to watch. Things happening without any repercussions. Some people get killed off for sneezing, but Clay (and others) get away with murder time and time again. It's ridiculously unbelievable and annoying.
I watched it for quite a while (up to season 5), but I just couldn't handle it any more and stopped.
That too. Repercussions for good people, re Tara's hand and such, but not for the worst people.
It makes total sense that Gemma killed Tara. She told Gemma that she'd never see her grandkids again, she was going to rat on Jax and the MC and destroy both of them, she filed for divorce behind pretty much everyone's back, she faked a pregnancy and then used the fake pregnancy to fake a miscarriage and framed Gemma for it, and before that she even acted friendly with Jax and the club before she snuck away and took the kids without telling anyone. It was only logical that Gemma kill Tara to protect her son, club, and people she's known for decades.
After all, Jax was getting the club out of guns and pushing the MC in a legitimate direction.
As for Opie, he was such a key character that his death made no sense. He was in line to be president, he had unfinished anguish with Clay and Jax, and he actually had something to contribute to the seasons he wasn't in. Tig was the perfect choice to be put to death. All he's done in the show is fvck shit up and provide weird comic relief every few episodes. Just think: He killed Pope's daughter, he saved that dog at the dog fight which almost caused the deaths of Sons, he didn't let the Arab pornmaker go and almost got Jax and Nero killed in a drive-by, and much more. He ....ed up so much that Jax even decided to give him up to August Marks. Tig contibutes little positivity to the series. I truly believe that if Opie lived, the seasons that followed would have been better, that's how much of a key player he was.
As for gruesome deaths: Kozik was blown up by a landmine, Torik had his throat slit with a shank, Phil and V-Lin were executed and cut into pieces, Tig's daughter was burned alive, Fiasco's best friend was crushed by an Impala, the guy who crushed Fiasco's friend stabbed himself in the throat with a butcher knife, Arcadio's girlfriend was forced to OD and then smothered by Juice, and Bobby had his eye gouged out, fingers cut off, and then was executed. So I think Tara being stabbed in the back of the head with a carving fork rates pretty low on the grotesque scale in SoA.
That's not exactly true.
Clay was sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit (Then later killed), Pope burned Tig's daughter alive and had Opie killed (Which was punishment for Tig and Jax) but was then executed by Tig and Jax, Gaalen and his men slaughtered Phil and V-Lin and in turn were slaughtered by Jax and the Sons, the Sons have been in prison 2(?) separate times where Juice was stabbed and Opie was beaten to death, Toric hurt alot of people and had his throat cut by Otto, who in turn was shot to death.
The only bad member I can think of who hasn't been punished is Happy, even though he was kidnapped by the asians for a couple days.
Still, I'm with Tara's reasoning. Jax had been saying for years that he was getting them out of guns but instead, things just got worse. Framing Gemma and playing her at her own game seemed like the only way out to protect her family. If she was up front with them, they would have just killed her.
I think Opie's death did make sense: he'd tried to get out, succeeded, came back due to his loyalty to Jax, never ratted, his wife was killed, the club didn't give a shit and had little-to-no remorse, even though he'd remarried his life was still pretty shit, he was still embroiled in all of this club shit but he still loved Jax so taking the hit for Jax gets him out and saves his best friend.
Tig is someone with no moral compass, who can be put to any task so is useful to Jax, thus good to keep around.
Those deaths and assaults you listed were more acceptable because they were against bad guys or done by bad guys to good guys so there was a sense of solidarity with the club. Gemma killing Tara then Juice killing the cop was too much for me as there was no way I could rally behind them any further and no redemption for me to hold out for.
Cats outta the bag now but I still can't bring myself to really care. Whereas up until the last season I would have been DYING to watch at this point.
watched the latest episode yesterday. I'm digging how its tying up . took a bit long to get there but I think its going to finish on a decent note like it started back at season 1
its a shame that it went kinda off the rails for a few seasons in the middle there .cause there are some cool characters and stuff mixed in with the "yeah right " moments
Just watched the episodes in Season 5 when
Opie dies and they have his funeral
. I cried like a bitch.
Jacks finding out about Gemma was huge! one of the better episodes in a while!
MEGA SPOILER BE CAREFUL
Gemma, unser, juice deaths. Expected but crazy.
I won't say exactly cause i always .... up spolier tags but the middle one suprised me
