Sons of Anarchy Round Table: Destiny vs. Family

at . Comments

Tara went all Gemma, Tig went rogue and Jax went... well, we're still not sure where Jax will go on Sons of Anarchy.

The first part of the season four finale left our Round Table panelists - Dan Forcella, Christine Orlando and Arlene Gonzalez - anxious for next week's conclusion. First, though, they take the following look back...


What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Dan: Gemma's plea to Jax, the manipulation of her son, that she hopes will lead to him killing Clay. It was so prominent that I couldn't help but think it was a nod to the past. Just as she's trying to manipulate Jax to kill the SAMCRO President now, she also manipulated Clay to kill then SAMCRO President John Teller back in the day. If true, it sets up Gemma to be the sympathetic big bad in seasons to come. Awesome.

Christine: Every scene Tara was in was more kick ass than the last. I loved when she pulled out the syringe and told Jax to kill Clay. She shocked both Jax and Gemma, then put Gemma on notice. It was perfect.

Arlene: Tig breaking down while visiting Clay in the hospital. I love Tig for a myriad of reasons and, while we've seen him cry in the past (that time he got high and weeped over a doll after Donna's death), we've never seen the true depth of his love for Clay. That scene certainly slammed it home. Close second? Jax' shower butt scene. Duh.

More likely to take place: Jax kills Clay and becomes SAMCRO President, Jax kills Clay and leaves town with Tara, or Jax does not kill Clay?
Dan: There is no way the second choice happens. Jax ain't going anywhere. I'm going to predict - having faith in Kurt Sutter to be bold - that Jax kills Clay and becomes SAMCRO President. As much as I have loved Ron Perlman this season, Clay's character has run its course. There is no place for him in this world after all that he has done over the last few episodes. None.

Christine: I'm betting something interrupts Jax killing Clay. I don't know that that means Clay will live, though. Jax isn't the only one that would like to see him dead.  And as much as I'd like to see Jax, Tara and their boys ride off into the sunset I know that just isn't going to happen.

Arlene: As much as I would hope Jax kills Clay and becomes SAMCRO president, I can't see Sutter killing off Clay. Clay may be at an all-time "most hated" but SOA without Perlman just doesn't jibe. And I certainly can't see him coming back in flashback scenes or ghost form.

Tig going rogue: Stupid or admirable?
Dan: Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. I don't care what love he was showing for his friend, he was starting a war. 

Christine: So stupid. Tig's such a loose cannon. He took all of his misplaced guilt and rage and killed some innocent girl and started a war. Just senseless.

Arlene: Oh Tiggy... typical. Flying off the handle looking for revenge. Can I say stupidly admirable? I kept shaking my head while watching that car scene and felt bad for Leroy. Poor guy. He didn't even do nuthin'.

Make one bold prediction about next week's finale.
Dan: Tara is the one who kills Clay.

Christine: I'd love to see Dan's prediction come true, but I'm still not sure Tara's capable of killing so coldly, even killing Clay who deserves it. Honestly, I have no idea what Kurt Sutter has planned for us next week. He's kept me guessing all season.

Arlene: Going out on a limb here but I predict that either the Irish or the Mexican cartel take down Clay. As far as either group is concerned, he's responsible for way too many f-ck-ups and will need to be eliminated. To them, it's just business not personal.


Tara stays


I think Jax will get pinched at the meet... leaving the Clay killing for Opie or Gemma... or less desired but more likely... next season. AND THEY BETTER NOT KILL OFF TARA. They can't... they really can't, there is too much revolving around here atm... the upcoming battle for Abel... the status of her hand, being the negating force to Gemma(now that she has leverage), possibly becoming the next Gemma... I mean they just made her 4 times more interesting and involved. I think between Clay getting killed and Bobby being pinched, Jax will decide he has to stay in Charming for a little while longer... and you know how that will turn out.


No way potter is jt that would ruin the show for me...clay cant die hes a main character they already killed off piney


I think Tara's "tell me you love me" was her way of seeing how much she can trust them. It was her measure, see if they were with her and if she could trust them. Jax passed and the look on Tara's face after Gemma said it said that she did not pass. Tara knew that Gemma would go get the letters and give them to Jax from the way she told her that she loved her. Just like she knew Jax was going to promise to drive her and the boys out of this posioned town. How this all plays out is yet to be seen. I say that Jax does not kill Clay, cuz doing so makes him Clay. How this all plays out for Tara and gemma is this up in the air for me. I am not sure how Sutter will plays this. Maybe having both of them win and lose, Gemma wins because they stay but Tara wins because she is the new Queen Bee, and Gemma is just a members mother now. Like she said "Hes mine" and with him comes the club. Its her family now, MAYBE???


first i think Kurt Sutter freakin rocks the planet and the D.A, dude riding around is really j.teller after years of plastic surgery or his could happen!'right Kurt?'


I would like to see Clay stay alive and suffer at the hands of Jax. Stripped of his cut and his tatts. Jax leaves town with Tara and the boys, Bobby to be prez if not Opp. Next season will be Jax fighting to stay out of the club but somehow get sucked back in.


Oh and the one last one and maybe the most important/was there an inside guy who really died the 1st episode or were we all fooled and the inside guy is either Romeo or his next in command?????goes back to the bad intel comment from my other post :-)


So many loose ends to tie up/and I am sure I am missing some
Clay being the first one but perhaps not really the biggest
The cartel and Irish meeting/will it take place or won't it??
Where does Opie fall into all of this??? revenge for Piney
Booby/Otto and Juice such a conundrum/do Juice or Bobby make it out?
Did Romeo get bad intel or give Jax bad intel on purpose?
Is Romeo trying to by pass SAMCRO to work directly with the Irish????
Is the issue with the 9er's going to carry over to next season?
Gemma or Tara/To be or Not to be??? Will Tara be the new Queen of sorts?????


I think someone in the cartel knows Otto ratted...he wants the deal to go down because he is ATF undercover...either Romeo or his Lt!


oh and i think romeo is deep undercover fed.
