It will be fall of 2014 before we actually get to the premiere of season 7 of “Sons of Anarchy. That hasn’t stopped the spoiler rumors from flying. On Jan. 20, The Epoch Times posted a roundup of those spoilers so read on at your own risk.
Kurt Sutter, the show’s creator said he knew from early on that Tara would die before the series came to its conclusion. At one point, he considered it in season 2. He went to say that the combined loss of Tara and Opie is going to have a serious impact on Jax.
“I knew, ultimately, where I wanted to take Jax in [the] final season… I wanted to remove his ‘True North,’ because I feel like there needs to be this major psychic and emotional shift that has to happen,” Sutter said. “What direction it will push him in we will see next season. But what happens to a guy like that now that he’s lost both of the people he loves the most, who were able to be his moral compass, with Opie and now Tara. It really is Jax completely untethered and on his own in the final season.”
Using Twitter, Sutter also explained that Unser has no idea what happened and won’t be able to clue Jax in. He also shared that Peter Fonda will be returning for season 7.
With regard to the dynamic between Juice and Gemma in the wake of Tara’s death and Juice’s actions, Sutter said:
“Knowing that he’s betrayed Jax is not necessarily a place that you want to be in in the outlaw community… I don’t think it was a calculated move on Juice’s part [to save Gemma]; in the moment he did what was expected of him,” Sutter said. But now the great thing is that we get this rich dynamic between the two of them. They were tied with the whole Clay of it all and now they’re deeply tied with this secret… Now we have really something fun to play with.”
When the new season begins, it will pick up where it left off. Sutter wants to use the severity of what happened to drive the show forward. If any time has lapsed at all, it will only be a few weeks.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Wendy Case (Drea de Matteo) will be a lot more active on screen. De Matteo has been made a series regular.
