'Sons of Anarchy' season 7: Will Jax have to pay the price for what Gemma did?

See also

"Sons of Anarchy" season 7 will not return until fall of 2014 but on Dec. 13, International Digital Times already posted the details on what fans can expect when the series returns. There are a lot of questions and few answers at this point, but Kurt Sutter did talk to some media outlets and there are some likely theories circulating the Internet.

Warning: If you do not want to know "Sons of Anarchy"season 7 spoilers or have not seen the season 6 finale, then stop reading.

On the season 6 finale, Gemma completely lost it and murdered Tara. She didn't know at that time that her daughter-in-law did not take Patterson's deal and Jax was turning himself in. He walked into his house to find his dead wife's body along with the man Juice killed, Sheriff Roosevelt. As fans remember, Juice also disposed of the evidence to protect Gemma, but without that evidence, Jax could be the one made responsible. When Patterson entered the home so Jax could turn himself in she saw a weeping Jax holding his wife's body, the dead sheriff, coagulated blood and Jax's gun resting at the feet of the sheriff. While the weapon on the floor does belong to Jax, he isn't the one that killed either of them. He was in shock and happened to drop his gun when he saw his wife's dead body laying on the floor.

In "Sons of Anarchy" season 7, it is being speculated that Jax may be charged for the murder of his wife and he could be seeing the inside of a jail cell. It will be interesting to see if he is found guilty of her murder, if Juice comes forward or if his mom admits that she was the one who murdered Tara, whether it is just to Jax or if she turns herself in. Juice already knows that Jax no longer trusts him, so will he just sit by? Sutter didn't have a solid answer, but did say that Juice could end up using it as leverage. And Gemma isn't exactly known for admitting when she is wrong and goes to great lengths to protect herself. While she has a deep love for her son, will that love push her to confess or will she let him pay for a crime he didn't commit if he is charged?

Even though Gemma is Jax's mother, he probably will never be able to forgive her for this if he finds out. But will he be able to actually kill his own mom? If he finds out right away, it is very possible since his grief will still be fresh and he will still have a lot of rage. Kurt Sutter told TV Line that he has a specific arc in mind for Jax,

“I’d love to bring CC back and we’re in the process of trying to bring her back… That relationship between [Jax and Patterson] was way more potent than anything I could have imagined with Donal [Logue]‘s character. She’s got that really strong maternal energy, but it’s a little bit masculine. We got to see [that dynamic] play out in that scene [at the ice cream shop]. I’d love to bring her back and play with what does she do now? Procedurally, what would happen is they would bring Jax in and place him in custody and question him extensively. We’ll see what that all looks like [next year]. I just knew that I didn’t want to end the season on a police beat.”

The upcoming season of "Sons of Anarchy" will not just deal with Jax and the murder of Tara. International Business Times wrote,

"... they will be embroiled in a full scale war as Alvarez and Nero form an alliance with the Chinese mafia to take down August Marks and the Sons of Anarchy. That's a lot of power arrayed against them and while August Marks is a powerful figure he may find himself tested by the forces arrayed against him while the Sons of Anarchy is still in disarray particular given Jax's likely arrest in season 7."

Sutter spoke to Entertainment Weekly and said that season 7 will begin a few weeks after the murders and had this to say about DA Pattersona and Jax,

"I think procedurally they would definitely bring him in and at the very least begin the questioning process. So he would be taken into custody, being on the scene there, and then I’ll — I’m not quite sure how I’ll want it to go from there. Is there a charge leveraged against him? And how does he respond to that? I’m still sort of playing with all that. (...) I didn’t want it to end ultimately on a police beat, meaning I didn’t want it to be about people getting on a radio and calling it in and blah blah blah. So, to me, I felt like there was that moment of shock and awe on her part, and she was sort of taking it all in. And the procedural stuff began once we got out of the shot. But I don’t know if she feels like Jax is the one who killed Tara. I think she may think he’s the one who killed Eli. But, regardless, I think Patterson feels a sense of betrayal: You made me a promise. I don’t know what your part in all this is, but I’m looking at two dead bodies, two innocent people are dead as a result of their interaction with you."

What do you think will happen with Jax in "Sons of Anarchy" season 7? Will he go to prison for Tara's murder? Will he find out that it was his own mother that killed her and that Juice disposed of the evidence? If so, what do you think he will do about it?
