“Sons of Anarchy” is finally coming into its own, as the season 6 premiere became the “most watched program in FX history.” According to the Futon Critic on Sept. 16, there were 8.32 million people who watched the boys of SAMCRO open up their latest season.
The “Sons of Anarchy” season 6 premiere show increased in viewers 22% over its season 5 premiere. It doesn’t look like the FX show has done any major advertising campaign that would deem it any different from seasons past. The word has gotten out, “Sons of Anarchy” is probably the best written and has some of the best acting that you’ll see in a series on TV today.
This is a show that’s not afraid to go where no man has gone before. Their season premiere for this season proved that point when a school shooting was part of the plot. While it was a short clip and much of it was left to the imagination, “Sons” still broke the silence in school shootings depicted on a TV series, where most shows steered clear of the subject.
Tonight’s show, the second episode of season 6 is bound to keep up the same numbers in viewers, as the premiere gave the new folks watching a reason to tune back in. For the "One One Six" episode "SOA" offers up this little bit of information:
“Jax deals with collateral damage as external pressure continues to stack up against SAMCRO.”
This is all the preview information that’s released for “Sons of Anarchy” episode titled “One One Six.” Last week Jax followed a hooker upstairs as his wife sits in jail. She's in there for doing something that was helping out SAMCRO. While this mindset of an old lady at home and many on the side works for the rest of the club, Jax appeared different, but apparently not.
Jax is making a goal out of being different and bringing the club to a different level than it has in the past. He wants to become less of an outlaw gang of bikers and turn the club more legit. While viewers see Jax set up these goals in promises he makes to Tara, it doesn't take long for his goals to crumble.
Tonight the fallout of the school shooting weighs heavy on the shoulders of the SAMCRO boys when the gun the kid used is traced back to the club. This puts Jax in a slump as he is hell bent on being a good father to his boys, but this school shooting makes him take a hard look at himself. Somehow being involved with the gun that got into the hands of a kid who took out his school mates, doesn’t fall under the good father category for Jax.
