What ever happened to, ‘The Life and Death of Sam Crow’?

The Life and Death of Sam CrowWhat ever happened to the great manuscript, ‘The Life and Death of Sam Crow’, authored by John Teller himself? The document played a crucial role in Sons of Anarchy, as it was one of the main things that set Jax on his hero-cycle-esque journey to save his club.

Series creator, Kurt Sutter, has assured us all that we will get to see the full manuscript at some point. In fact it was initially supposed to be released immediately following the series finale of SOA. Problem is, somewhere along the line Sutter decided he wants to do a prequel miniseries, showing how the club got to where we picked up in season one.

Sutter logically feels like releasing the document now would keep him bound far too much while writing the miniseries. By holding off the release, he will be free to create whatever plot he wants, and then match up ‘The Life and Death of Sam Crow’ accordingly.

Sutter is currently working on a new series, ‘The Bastard Executioner’, so we likely won’t see the prequel, or the manuscript, for quite some time.


‘Sons of Anarchy’ Finale Summary

Sons of Anarchy Finale

Sons of Anarchy has received some criticism for its ultra violent final season. The last 2 episodes have certainly showed off a more sensitive side. While at face value, the show is inherently about a gang of violent criminals, SOA has shown us that the characters are capable of much more than that.

We have developed soft spots for many of the characters and it’s hard for us to see so many of them fall. Even one’s like Gemma, who have seemingly done so wrong, died reminding us that they too were victims of a much larger plight.

Check out these pictures on that help summarize the finale.

With cloudy eyes and a grim fate for some of the Sons, it’s tough to look at for a true fan. The ending was honestly refreshing. Jax stepped up and finally made a decision that seemed 100% genuine and right.

I’m sad to see it end but it was nice to see it wrapped up in such a way. I flipped the TV off with a smile on my face, and I certainly can’t say that about every series I’ve watched.


Sons of Anarchy: Gemma Teller Morrow’s Finale

The final season of Sons of Anarchy has been action on top of action, pretty much nonstop. I think it’s safe to say we all had a pretty good idea of where it was going, especially concerning the likes of Gemma Teller Morrow. Well folks it finally happened… The witch is dead.

Her final SOA performance may have been one of her best ever, though. It almost made me feel bad for her when she died. It was one of the first times she ever really opened up to us. Visiting her sick father was something I wouldn’t have guessed in a million years.

It was something that had to happen though. Gemma was just as doomed as anyone else on the show. Her selfish and sneaky ways always got her into trouble. Finally they caught up to her…
Katy Sagal will be sorely missed on the show. SOA without Gemma hardly even seems like SOA anymore. They brought her all the way to the home stretch, though, which we can all be thankful for.


Sons of Anarchy – Wrapping Up


Sons of Anarchy continues to spiral into violence and mayhem. Abel has suddenly become ever more critical to the show. After some drama at school, he finally revealed Gemma’s horrible secret to Jax.

Abel and Thomas have always been instrumental to the show. They constantly pull Jax’s heart away from the club, or at least make him think about his decisions. Now that Abel spilled the beans we can only assume that Jax is going to lose it. Especially considering the fact that he’s already so far gone.

With only a few episodes left, there are still a lot of loose ends to tie up. It’s going to be very interesting to see how it all gets wrapped up. Is there even any chance that the club, or any of its members, will make it out in one piece? Personally I’m leaning towards no. I think the future lies with Abel and Thomas. They will be given the opportunity to break off from the traditional Teller path.

A fresh start sounds pretty good right now. Unfortunately the majority of the characters are way too deep to hope for that.


Sons of Anarchy Video Game Release

Sons of Anarchy

The final season of Sons of Anarchy airs on September 9, at 10pm. Of course that means it’s time for them to release a video game. The game, which had originally been envisioned for a console, will be released for tablets as a “high-end” game.

Kurt Sutter has been heavily involved in the game and says that it’s going to be “F***ing awesome”, in typical Sutter fashion. While tablet games have been historically unpopular, the popularity of the show could make this a big seller. Sons of Anarchy is the type of show that could easily be adapted to a video game. It’s really no surprise at all that they went this route. And even through this rocky road of creation, it sounds like we’ll still be able to hit the streets as Jax, Tig and the rest of the gang.


Sons of Anarchy Season 7 Trailer

Often time shows try to maintain a certain level of secrecy going into a season. For example American Horror Story has revealed next to nothing about it’s upcoming 4th season.
Sons of Anarchy, however, has not been shy to talk about what’s in store. Partially because we all can make some pretty good guesses about some things we might see, but also because that’s just the way the show is.

The number one thing that has been talked about is the change in Jax. After the death of Tara it seems he becomes obsessed with one thing, revenge. He still has his boys to look after, but the death of his wife is really what finally put him over the edge. His end game appears to have disappeared. Now the club is all he has, and he will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

Season 7 premieres September 9, on FX.


Sons of Anarchy Comic Con 2014 News

A lot of interesting Sons of Anarchy details were revealed at Comic Con 2014. Much of the cast was there including Katey Sagal, Paris Barclay, and Mark Boone. Charlie Hunnam was not, but he reportedly provided a little entertainment via a video.

Show creator Kurt Sutter says we will be looking at a totally new Jax this upcoming season. One thing has become increasingly more evident both throughout season 6 as well as through some of the pre-season 7 chatter; Jax is about to lose it. After the most recent gut wrenching finale, a lot of us didn’t really know what to think. It sounds like Jax didn’t either. Sutter also has announced that there will be a book series coming out. They will “live in our mythology but not impact things that happened [in the show]”. The first on, “Bratva”, will be released this November.

Finally there have talks of a prequel. There’s clearly been a lot of allusions to John Teller, Piney, Clay, and the rest of the fist 9. But we really haven’t gotten that much information. It’s been “need to know” at best. A prequel, possibly a mini-series, would do a lot to give us some more insight into the club and some of the drama that goes along with it.


Malcom-Jamal Warner joins Sons of Anarchy

Malcom-Jamal Warner

Sons of Anarchy season 7 officially kicks off on September 9th, at 10pm ET.

Recently it was announced Malcom-Jamal Warner will be added to the cast list. He will play right hand man to T.O. Cross, leader of the familiar Grim Bastards. How exactly the boys from Lodi will fit into the mix remains to be seen.

So far we know that season 7 will start 10 days after we last left Jax and company. Reportedly Jax is serving time on parole violations. While there’s any number that he could have been pinned for, my best guess would be that they got him for the gun found at the final seen in season 6.

Thus far both teaser trailers are rather… morbid. The first shows Jax riding down an ominous highway in the dark. While passing through a shadow his face flashes from his own into the Reaper’s.

The other shows a bike again cruising down a dark highway. As it passes a cross on the highway, we notice that no one is actually riding the bike.

I think it’s a safe assumption that the final season of Sons of Anarchy isn’t going to be holding much back.
