After the climatic ending to last season, Kurt Sutter's, Sons of Anarchy is off to a bang with its final season's premiere episode.
Last we left our friends from Charming, California, Gemma was sticking a fork into her son's wife's (Tara) head, Juice was shooting the cop (Eli) that walked in on the aftermath and Jax was turning himself in to the authorities.
The season premiere starts off with Jax behind bars doing a favor for "White," who is run by Ron Tully, (played by Marilyn Manson) by beating and cutting up a snitch. Nero is still working with the Mayans to patch up things with "Brown" and "Yellow". Wendy checks herself out of rehab only to find that Gemma has Juice hiding out in her apartment. Jax gets out of prison since they have no evidence to hold him and makes a personal connection with D.A. Patterson who had her family affected with gang violence.
While trying to find the blue Impala that ran the SAMCRO recruits off the road, Chibbs ties a gang banger in a wheel chair to the back of Bobby Elvis's bike which leads to some info on where the bad guys are hiding out. Meanwhile Wendy is trying to get back in the good graces of Jax by helping out with the kids now that Tara is dead.
Gemma is putting together cash to get Juice out of town and decides to let Wendy stay with her for a bit. While picking up Wendy, Unser gets a little suspicious about the back pack in her closet with the reaper patch and returns later only to get held up at gun point by Juice, who now has the ole man hostage. Jax and the boys meet up with The Grim Bastards outside the spot where the Impala is parked only to walk in on a bunch of pastors in a gang bang, wrong car or set up?
Jax meets with "Yellow" and "Brown" to smooth things over after giving the Irish connect to "Black" last season and invites them all to a nice little coming home party for Jax at the new porn studio "Red Woody". During the party Gemma chats up an Asian guy at the bar who is an enforcer for "Yellow" and proceeds to tell Jax and the Bastards that he's the guy he saw coming out of Jax's house the night Tara and Eli were killed.
The Bastards scoop him up and bring him to Jax's house for some good ole torture at the hands of Jax. Add pliers, knives, some salt, and of course the big ass fork that did Tara in and Asian guy goes night night with a fork in the top of his skull.
All in all the episode was a slow build up to the end but what we can all take away from this is that Jax means business this season and is taking no shit. I just hope Unser doesn't get clipped since the guy has made is 7 seasons with stage 1 million cancer and i dont want to see him get it from a rat. The below teaser looks to have that rat Juice making deals with the Mayans. Not a good career move for the kid especially with Jax on a mission. Stay tuned for more!!
