Sons Of Anarchy Premiere [VIDEO]
So what did you think?
The long awaited show Sons of Anarchy premiered last night. It seems as its going to be an intense season.
Let's review what happened:
Tara (Maggie Siff) is now in jail and though she thought Gemma placed her there, she finally finds out who truly did and why. Things aren't looking good so obviously she has to bold up in the big house.
Jax (Charlie Hunnam) has been trying to see Tara (she doesn't want him to see her like that) and trying to find out how to get her out and who put her there. Their lawyer, Ally Lowen (Robin Weigert) passed on the message to Jax that Tara thinks Gemma threatened her after she told her she was leaving Charming with her boys.
Clay (Ron Perlman) gets an offer from weirdo - US Marshall, Lee Toric (Donal Logue) to practically sell out SAMCRO. (You remember him, the US Marshall that is seeking revenge ever since Otto killed his sister.)
Chibs (Tommy Flanagan) has some alone - beat - up time with Juice (Theo Rossi). Tig (Kim Coates) is pretty much the same, already killed someone he was supposed to let go. Although he had a good reason, the guy told him some smack about his daughter (I did read somewhere that his other daughter will make an appearance ... maybe).
Bobby (Mark Boone Junior) has moved into a new apartment and I guess is considering going Nomad. Wayne Unser (Dayton Callie) helps take care of the kids. Gemma ... oh Gemma (Katey Sagal), still stirring things up as always. So far this season she's already threatened Lowen.
One of the main events that occurred in last night's episode, which has become quite the controversy, is a story that Sutter had been considering for several seasons. The scene is of a little boy who takes a firearm from his backpack and as they close up to his disturbing journal ... he enters the school and shoots. Sutter sought the approval of the network and they were all for it.
"When the shootings recently happened ... I thought, 'Am I just going to be swinging in the breeze if I tell this story? But then I also felt like, 'I'm not going to not tell this story because I'm afraid that I'm going to get some blowback.' The best thing I could do as a storyteller was try to do it in the most organic way. - What I tried to do, in a non-preachy way, is layer in my point of view, which is that it isn't one thing. I put it in a Catholic school because I didn't want to make a statement about the public school system. I believe that it's about mental illness, which is why I layered that in. I believe it's about parent neglect, which is why I layered that in. I believe it's about the gun laws and illegal guns on the street. All those things contribute to that perfect storm. If I am making any kind of social statement here, it is the fact that it takes a village to heal a kid and it takes a village to f---ing kill a kid." ~ Kurt Sutter
Now, we all know that most of the Club's money comes from trafficking illegal firearms, and in the end the firearm used by the kid will lead back to SAMCRO. (Obviously not a good thing!)
Another thing that Jax is now constantly thinking of is his kids. He not only has to worry about what decisions or actions he takes within the club, but now he has to see how his actions affect his kids ... how his lifestyle may impact them.
Things are already getting bumpy and its only been the first episode. I sooo can't wait to see what's going to happen next!!
