“Sons of Anarchy” season 6 premiere is just around the corner and it offers up one of the biggest changes on the show yet. Jax and Tara marriage is all but taken its last breath before going under and you have to admit, the “Sons of Anarchy” writers don't have much choice when it comes to Tara. Kurt Sutter, the show's creator, just released some dismal news about Tara and Jax relationship.
According to the Hollywood Hills on Sept. 1, season 6 of “SOA” is a sad one for Jax and Tara's relationship. Tara is a surgeon, she's an educated woman who has the intelligence, willpower and stamina to go through years of school to get where she is. On several occasions she's all but ruined her career, including having her hand smashed to pieces during a kidnapping attempt a while back.
Now she's in prison for misusing her doctor privileges among many other things, so it looks as if this could be the end of her license. Many viewers have wondered when the writers were going to have Tara's intellect overcome her heart strings.
There's no doubt about it, these once childhood sweethearts were meant to be soul mates, but for how long can you have Jax saying it's going to get better. How long was Tara suppose to hold onto the promise that he's getting out of the life and promising her and the boys a safe lifestyle far away from Charming.
There's not doubt about Jax loving Tara, but maybe he'll finally realize that he can't keep putting her and the boys in harms way. The latest spoilers suggest that Jax doesn't visit Tara at all in prison.
Viewers know that Jax and Tara have an unbreakable bond, she is more than his old lady, Tara is actually Jax's best friend. Could it be that while Tara is dealing with this legal mess, Jax and Tara decided to play the role of parting ways? This would undoubtedly make Tara's future chances much better of getting any kind of leniency within the legal system.
Even down the line, she's got a much better chance of parole if she's going home to her two sons only than if she's going home to the president of the Sons motorcycle gang. Sutter, the creator of “Sons of Anarchy,” describes the reunion of Jax and Tara as “loving, but very sad” in season 6. It's that “loving” part that makes one wonder if they will go through the motions of being an estranged couple just to save Tara anymore undeserved angst.
What's your take on this relationship, will it outlast anything thrown at them, or has Tara finally realized that no matter what, she's a biker's old lady first in the eyes of the public? Has Tara come to the conclusion that being a top surgeon and an old lady of a biker from an outlaw motorcycle gang just don't mix?
Check out the season 6 premiere of "Sons of Anarchy" on September 10, at 10 p.m. on FX.
