‘Sons of Anarchy’ season 6, episode 13 preview: Charlie Hunnam’s Jax, ‘A Mother’s Work,’ and a finale
“Sons of Anarchy” next week promises the end of the road … at least for the time being. This is going to be one heck of an emotional hour to watch, as you can be assured of at least a few things: More violence, big decisions, and shockers that will reverberate like a tricked-out car speaker for months to come. You’re going to have a long time to simmer this one, too … think until the show returns to the air in September 2014.
We’ll have analysis of the promo shortly (and it may even be below by the time you read this), but let’s start with the basic details as we’ve done every week this season.
The title – “A Mother’s Work.” There’s not really that much to analyze here compared to past episodes. But which “mother” are we talking about here: Gemma, Tara, and Wendy? All have differences, and yet all have been put through varying levels of torment and circumstance since the beginning of the series.
The synopsis – In true FX tradition, you’re not going to get much here (and with good reason, since there was not much that could be teased when this was released weeks ago): “The ramifications of Jax’s choices put his club and family in jeopardy.” Didn’t you see these particular details coming a mile away? Of course these choices were going to come back to haunt him. Kurt Sutter has created here a brutal, realistic world. These worlds have consequences, and Charlie Hunnam’s Jax has made many actions awaiting reactions.
The promo – This video tees up a lot of strange things, mostly because it doesn’t feel like the producers want to tip their hands too much one way or another. We were shocked over a few moments … at least before we realized that they were all moments that already happened this season.
In the end, let’s just hope for a satisfying conclusion for now, and hints of more great stuff to come in the final chapter. It sounds so cliche to say, but this season has really blown by, even with some of the episodes being 90 minutes long.
