“Sons of Anarchy” season 6 airs “Los Fantasmas” tonight and after last week’s cliff hanger with Tara’s staged miscarriage, the plot is getting thicker. According to Fansided on Oct. 29, not too many people thought Tara was capable of a strategy so devious that she clipped the wings of the queen of manipulation, Gemma. "Los Fantasmas" means "ghosts," so what ghosts are showing up on tonight's episode?
While Tara staged her pregnancy, there is still a dead baby haunting Jax, as he doesn't know there wasn't a baby on the way to begin with. Gemma knows she is beat, she saw Tara throw herself against the desk and scream before anyone else came into the room. Gemma watched Tara sitting there with her own blood, which she drew up in advance, seemingly pouring out of the area that would indicate a miscarriage. Gemma knew she was a goner as soon as she saw Tara hit the desk and fall back.
There is not a soul that wouldn’t believe Tara’s story after the way she staged this aftermath of a fight. Tara has Gemma right where she wants her, behind bars and away from her and the kids for good. Jax’s sadness over losing the little girl that he believed Tara to be pregnant with, put him in the ripened state of mind to sign the restraining orders keeping his mother away.
The two people that look more perplexed about how low Tara would go are Unser and Wendy. Unser has told Tara all along she may be getting in too deep and after the staging of the miscarriage, he realizes just how low she will go to remove Gemma out of her life, or more importantly, her kids' life.
Wendy looks mystified, as if she is a bit lost in all of Tara’s latest antics. But as Fansided suggested today, it is just a matter of time before Unser or Wendy come clean with Gemma about Tara’s plan. Jax is totally in the dark to Tara’s plan of divorcing him and leaving Charming with the boys. He would be livid if he knew she was planning to use Wendy as the boy’s guardian if she were to have to go back to jail.
You have to admit, it’s about time Tara stood up and took her life back. She was an accomplished surgeon and fit in with society, but today she doesn’t have a hold on her career with jail time staring her in the face and she has the reputation of a biker’s old lady, an outlaw biker at that.
Most of all you had to wonder how long she would let those kids live a life surrounded by danger. How cool it would be if “Sons of Anarchy” had Tara end season six with her and the boys leaving Charming. Then for the next season have it open 10 years into the future with Tara in a new life, with a new husband and two teen boys. Jax, who hasn’t heard a word from her in a decade finally finds her and he sees his sons for the first time in 10 years. This would make interesting TV.
Somehow, it doesn’t seem as if Tara will be able to make a clean getaway with the boys and Gemma will go down trying to get back into the lives of her “grand babies.” The writers of “Sons of Anarchy” have many possibilities where to go with Jax’s home life. Either Tara’s gone with the boys, Tara’s gone because Jax or Gemma knock her off or Tara stays and lives the dangerous life of the SAMCRO family. What do you think?
