Who's ready for the final season of Sons of Anarchy? We don't have much of a wait, since the premiere of season 7 begins September 9, and if there's one person who's got their eye on that date even more than the hardcore fans, it's creator Kurt Sutter, who claims he hasn't quite figured out how the series will end yet.
Sutter says the last season will begin 10 days after the season 6 finale (when you-know-who died), and Jax will be on a mission of revenge. This is definitely the vibe we get in the latest teaser video, titled "Fear the Reaper." In it, it's clear that Jax is a deadly force to be reckoned with ... but he appears to be only a few steps beyond the reach of the law.
(Sons of Anarchy season 6 spoilers ahead!)
Charlie Hunnam, who plays Jax, says we can expect Jax to be in a very dark place in season 7 after losing Tara:
Jax is in a very schizophrenic state. He’s obviously very sad and vulnerable and kind of broken, but there’s a huge amount of vengeance and anger in his heart … He knows what he wants to do, and that’s where all his energy is going. He can’t get away from the fact that the love of his life has been taken from him.
According to Sutter,
[Jax]‘s singular purpose for most of the season is to avenge her death.
Take a look at the most recent teaser clip:
Here are the two previous clips, one titled "Hell Awaits":
And "Final Ride":
Ugh, what does the empty bike MEAN? Is it Jax, soulless without Tara, completely given over to the Reaper and ready to make the world burn? Is it the ghost of John Teller? Does it represent the ZERO number of people who will survive the final season? And hey, what does the cross on the side of the road at :02 mean?
So many questions, but we'll have to wait to find out how the various Sons storylines will conclude. We can only be sure of a few things: 1) the extended premiere episode will be 105 minutes long, 2) it's not likely to be a happy ending, and 3) it won't end on a completely ambiguous note, a la The Sopranos. As Sutter said,
We don’t fade to black in a diner.
