Holy hell, guys. Season six was a rollercoaster. So much death, so many twists, and so many bridges burned forever. This season saw a great deal of characters say goodbye forever and while no doubt resonate into what I can only assume is an incredible sendoff season. But first, Jax had to deal with some of the hardest decisions he's ever had to make in service of SAMCRO. He had to finally sever ties with the IRA while simultaneously protecting his kids from their now unstable mother.
The plot involving Tara betraying the club frankly came out of left field and felt a little forced. Thankfully, it very nearly resolved itself until it ended in horrific tragedy that seriously made me scream at my TV screen. I've been upset at this show before, but the way Tara was stabbed to death with a barbecue fork seriously pissed me off (in a good way). I have no doubt how Jax is going to handle this, as he's already lost so much.
This season also said goodbye to Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman), who was finally silenced by Jax as a way to convince the IRA that he couldn't be trusted. Clay had had it coming for a while and while I'm sad to see one of television's most entertaining villains bite it, I'm glad that the show didn't drag his arc out to the point that it was ridiculous for him to still be around. RIP Clay, I hope you rot comfortably in hell. Overall, this show has been consistently incredible and I was repeatedly stunned at the brutal storytelling of Sons of Anarchy's sixth and penultimate season. Here's to a helluva last hurrah, boys. You've earned it.
