It is no secret to any “Sons of Anarchy” fan that Gemma is fiercely loyal and protective mother. When the finale of season 6 ended, though, even the most devout fan was dumbstruck by the horrific lengths to which she went to protect her family and who paid the price for it. Huffington Post shared details of the shocking death on Dec. 11.
Jax and Tara had made a deal with the D.A.’s office, a deal Gemma was misinformed about. Thinking Tara had made a deal to betray Jax and the club in exchange for her own freedom, Gemma was waiting for her daughter-in-law when she got home.
First she slammed Tara in the side of the head with an iron. Next came an attempted drowning in the kitchen sink. When that didn’t work, Gemma repeatedly stabbed Tara in the back of the head with a carving fork until she stopped moving. Juice arrived on the scene and shot Sheriff Eli, killing him. Gemma retreated to Unser’s arms while Juice covered up her crime.
Jax showed up just minutes before he was supposed to turn himself in and discovered the bodies of Tara and Roosevelt. Patterson arrived on the scene and spotted Jax’s gun on the floor where he’d dropped it in shock.
Will Tara’s death be what ultimately saves Jax and the boys? We’ll have to wait for season 7 to find out. Check back for news, spoilers and updates.
