While the shocking revelation did clear up many of the open issues, in a way it was a bit of a disappointment.

I could have digested that Romeo and the cartel was working with the CIA as informants like Frank Costello in The Departed but to have Romeo actually carrying a badge as a CIA officer was a bit reaching. This makes Romeo subject to a lot more scrutiny than was needed for all of the murders he has committed over the season. The only thing it really explains is the white guys in hoods speaking Spanish when they tried to abduct Tara.

The final scene reminded me a bit of the Godfather when Michael became the head of the family. They were all giving their approval of the change in power as they entered the room. All in all I thought it was a good finale. I just hate that we have another 8 months or so before we get new episodes!

There is historical basis for involving gangs and drugs in government business for those who might think what played out is not realistic. I agree it was kind of anti-climatic in some ways, but I still think it worked.

Bring on Justified now!

Not knocking you, but once the episode airs all bets are off. Why come to the thread if you haven't watched it yet?

What annoys me are all the chats about previews. I understand that it's fair game but it's ludicrous to me that viewers would actually sneak a peak instead of enjoying a show fresh. It's like looking through a novel and reading pages. Never understood that mentality.

Agree with the above comments re this finale-- Vic Macky too funny!

I agree!
Previews should be tagged!

Gemma seeing Jax hide the letters keeps her around, script wise but enough already with the letters.

Sorry, friends ... after one of the most exciting, engrossing, nail biting TV seasons of any show I can remember, the finale was a total letdown .. building up all the drama for weeks, and then this .. ??

Actually while I thought Clay absolutely has to be killed before the end of the season it makes sense that Jax didn't do it. If Jax wants to steer the club away from what it has become he can't be a ruthless killer, even if it is revenge for all that Clay has done to him & family. Jax is better than this, I was starting to dislike Jax at the beginning of the season when he was just as bad and killing people like everybody else, but now the way the story is set up he can redeem himself and not become the new Clay & Gemma with Tara by his side.

Jax couldn't kill Clay or else the gun deal with the Irish is dead and the CIA said if the gun and drug trade ends then they will let the AUSA bring the RICO charges that will put all of SAMCRO in jail for life.

Yeah, I brought that up on November 11th. I am glad that is tied in (through inference, at least) rather than just left hanging there.

Yes, me too. What did you all think of the revised lyrics of House of the Rising Sun or Son, as the case may be.

I agree. I dont think it was a "total" letdown, but disappointing in some ways. My biggest problem is that this whole season, one of the biggest plots was what would Jax do. Would he stay with the club and lost Tara? Or would he stay with Tara and lose his life with the club?

Obviously WE all knew that after the convo with the cartel, Jax would have to stay, and we assume Tara would leave him, just like she said she would do if he stayed in the club. But apparantly all it took was a couple lines of dialogue to change her mind, and she now has no problem with him staying. I'm not saying I dont like the outcome of it, but it's just disappointing that we were led to believe Jax had an ultimatum, and would lose one or the other, but in the end it didn't matter.

My 2 cents on the rest of the episode: The cartel being protected was a surprise to me, but it definitely makes sense looking back and looking forward. Again though, it was a bit of a letdown. We were led to believe the whole season that a BIG bust was about to go down, and then it's over before it even started. So basically Potter's character was pretty much just a filler all season.

The scene with Jax and Clay was, as expected, killer acting. To see Jax finally stand up to Clay and lay the law down really changes how we look at Jax from now on. We always knew he was a leader, but now we can actually see it happen.

The last few episodes were so good ,the last one was kinda flat.The sex toys were good.

But it did end the season with good explanations of what happened.


Some good news from Sutter-

Quote:



Where do you stand on setting an end date to the show?

I've had a conversation with [FX president] John Landgraf and I look at [doing] potentially seven seasons.


And, honestly, that's really just coming from the model of the show and knowing that usually by Season 6 and 7 the above-the-line costs start to get pretty high and the show sort of loses profitability and it's really difficult to continue to [produce] beyond that point.


So my thought was that if I could get seven seasons, I'd definitely have stories to tell and a way to end it.

Good ending, liked Jax's coup d'etat of the club.. Nice knife, in the closeup it looked like it had USMC on it. I was expecting Opie to come in as the final closure of the club members.. What did Jax say to Tig when he was going to sit down?

Something to the effect that he is no longer the right hand man of the president. Move down a seat. I guess that chair is reserved for Opie.

Basically to move his ass, he wasn't going to be his Sgt. at Arms. That was going to the Irish guy with a scar - if he was good enough for Maximus Decimus Meridius, he's good enough for Jax.

Jax was VP, Tig was Sgt. at Arms. The chair on the other side of the table is for (VP) Opie.

Another way to look at it is that Jax did lose Tara. She isn't the same person now. She has now fully transformed into a SAMCRO old lady, and Jax is exactly where he didn't want to be. Hence the final transition from Jax/Tara to a young John Teller/Gemma

hello all,

it was the worst season finale of the serires.
post #799 of 1214
First I would agree that it was a little bit of let down considering how much of a role potter played this year and what we expected would happen. On the other hand our suspicions regarding Romeo and his right hand came true.
After the terrific episodes that have come before it I guess Sutter felt he could not have more bloodshed and still set things up for next year. I was wondering how they were going to come out of the meeting without Jax and company going to jail and they way they did it made sense.
Dont know how Jax, Gemma, Tara and Opie will deal with Clay next year.
I think Jax will have to tell Opie the truth of what went down in order to get him back as his vp. I guess the Niners will be the big problem next year since Tig Killed the daughter of what we are told is one nasty ganglord.

I liked the season finale. It ended with a whimper, not a roar, but I thought it was tremendously effective. I especially enjoyed being able to see the other side of Linc Potter. Linc's acknowledgement to Eli that he was, indeed, an odd duck and, in fact didn't like people much moved me. He also showed me something by using government intelligence at the Charming City Council meeting to throw a monkey wrench in the sleazy Charming Heights project. I particularly liked Linc's explanation to the head sleaze, Jacob Hale, that he did it because, "I don't like you." Linc has a lot more character than I had been giving him credit for.

I bought Jax's unwillingness to kill Clay. After all, the alternative, every SAMCRO member going to the federal pen, was extremely unappealing.

I loved the look on Gemma's face when she saw Jax sitting at the gavel and learned that Tara was going to stay in Charming. I think Gemma has worse trouble coming, though. It is inevitable that Jax will ultimately learn of his mother's complicity in John Teller's death. I thought the superimposition of John Teller and his Irish lover's picture over Jax and Tara at the head of the table was inspired. It was a fitting end to a great season.

Wasn't that a young Gemma?

I'll agree that the finale had it's moments .. I guess after the whole season buildup, I just expected the final burst of fireworks .. the grande finale, if you will ..

I'll add that after thinking about it all day .. it was a fitting setup for next season .. and all those on the thread that said Clay had to live were right ..

Yeah, upon mature reflection, that had to be the young Gemma with the young John. Thanks for the correction.

You can tell because when guys get their picture taken with their mistress, they are typically smiling.

Good one .. he did look pretty grim ..
post #808 of 1214
I for one was expecting a violent episode one way or the other..But I think the writers punished Clay the worst way they could. Not with guns, knives or bullets but by taking away the presidency. Too bad Opie missed the meeting..Nice knife used by Jax, I think its called the Ka-Bar USMC knife..http://www.uswings.com/knives.asp

It's turning out as I expected, now Jax will come up with a secret plan and Clay will be killed by the girl's father that Tig killed.
