“Sons of Anarchy” season 6 finale is on Tuesday and after Tara disappeared with the boys, Jax doesn’t know what’s around the next corner and neither do the viewers. He knows Tara talked to the DA and she knows enough to dismantle the “Sons of Anarchy” club for good. Anyone with that kind of power is usually hunted down and disposed of, will this be Jax’s next move?
One thing that's worth noting is the rendition of "You are My Sunshine" from Tuesday night's show. It sounded like a song you would play in a funeral procession. It was moody and haunting, but oh, so fitting for what went on in this episode and for what is promised for the season finale.
According to TV Line on Nov. 3, Nero might be acting like he’s not going to come undone about Juice’s confession during his oxycodone overdose, but he is steaming inside. Juice confesses to Nero that he killed Darvany, Nero’s late cousin’s druggie girlfriend and the mother of the young boy responsible for that school shooting.
Nero really sees Jax for what he is and when he goes to confront him he finds Jax deep in sorrow over Tara and the boys departing and Tara’s betrayal by going to the DA. Jax is hurting more than Nero is from the news that his wife is gone with the boys. It's hard to figure out with Jax if its the boys gone out of his life or Tara ratting that's got him the most upset. She could bring SAMCRO to its demise with what she knows.
Tara, who decides to take off on her own with the boys, has given the slip to the DA, but Jax doesn’t know this. As far as he knows she has filled the DA in on all the dirty big secrets of the club and if Tara is allowed to live, her testimony would do away with the “Sons of Anarchy.”
It looks as if Tara is going to do this on her own so that she doesn’t ruin Jax’s life, but she's still able to escape his grip. She hits the road with the boys, after pulling a gun on Unser and almost knocking Wendy out with a backhand. The episode closes with Tara making it as far as a run-down hotel room. This is her first night on the run. As far as Jax knows, she’s already buried him, but that’s not the case.
Tara disappeared without implicating Jax or the club. The bloody bullet she pulled out of Bobby’s neck, which is all the DA needs to prove SAMCRO was at the scene of breaking Clay out of the prison transport, is still in Tara’s possession. She didn’t give it up.
She might have made a grave mistake by not going with the DA and the witness protection program. She still loves Jax and she doesn’t want his dreams of taking the club into better pastures crushed, so skipping the DA and fleeing on her own was the only way everyone concerned could have a life outside of the prison system.
With Tara out there and Jax thinking she’s turned him and the club in, her life is in danger. Finding her won’t be hard for Jax because he has influence just about everywhere. If Tara makes the mistake of calling one of her friends, then Jax will hunt that person down. The monster in Jax was revealed to Nero Tuesday night and while Tara hasn't met that part of Jax yet, hopefully its not too late for her when she does.
The season 6 finale “leaves you breathless” says Jimmy Smits who plays Nero. He tells TV Line:
“I really think it’s brilliant in terms of the way it leaves viewers… It really leaves you breathless. You’ll wonder, “Do I have to hold my breath now until it’s back again?!” Yep, kind of. [Laughs] I [was] shocked.”
There you have it, it’s a brilliant ending to season 6, so brilliant that you may find yourself holding your breath to see where the folks from “Sons of Anarchy” will end up in season 7.
