Great finale. Sutter and company definately pulled a fast one on the audience with the club being in on Jax being a rat. I dont think Jax has a clue that Gemma and Clay were responsible for his dad's death. One thing to mention is that Gemma didnt want Jax to die, she tells Clay in the beginning of the episode that she doesnt want him to see the same fate that John did. Thats when I knew those two were responsible for his death. It truly changes thought how we perceive Clay and Gemma now. They are truly evil people regardless of the appearences they put up. Its a brilliant move by the writers, they did a similar thing with the Shield in the last 2 seasons when the audience, for the most part, went from liking Vic Mackey to the show revealing to us the scumbag he really was and turning the focus of the show from disturbed hero to downright evil bastard. I guessing that change took place last night when it comes to Gemma and Clay. Im guessing Tara and Jax will be at odds with those two for the remainder of the show now as they battle for the club and there humanity.
ill watch on dvd sometime as i dont get HBO. The books are some of the best fantasy by far. The actual fantasy is quite subdued and the story is more political intrigue. Its a story of the Starks, Lannisters and Baratheon set against the backdrop of the Night Watch and the threat of the mythical "Others" that may or not be threatening the realm. My only complaint is while George Martin, the author, is spending time on this tv series he wont get the 5th book in the series finished, its been some 5 yrs now since the last book came out. Prolific this guy is not.
I'm starting to lose interest in this show. I didnt really care that much at all about Sean getting his girl back. The aliens and the president story is still keeping my interest but barely. I got about one or two more episodes at the most before I give up, unless things start getting more interesting.
Jax is being a pouting little bitch who is reacting the only way he knows how to the circumstances hes in. Tara is a strong character and Im confident the writers will do her character justice. Its good to see Kozik... aka Lem from his Shield days, on the show. I hope he becomes a regular.
Good episode, Im assuming next week will see us in the alternate universe with the Olivia we all know. I hope this show makes it through the season, the ratings are horrible.
The scene with Katy and Hal Holbrook was one of the most emotional and dramatic scenes I've ever seen on television or in theater. Kurt Sutter is a genius and proves it week after week. Katy Sagal is proving since last year to be the best actor on the show, her range from depression to anger to joy to ultimate sadness again is amazing. I agree with the review, the scenes in Belfast are hard to follow as the dialogue is hard to understand. This adds to the realism of the show but makes it frustrating as I feel Im missing something. Not sure of the priests motives in not returning Abel to his family, and the coming battle with the priest and the Sons is starting to take shape. A great season so far!!
Great episode and agree that Gemma learned about her mom being dead not Abel. Very dark episode over all and got the feeling the all 13 episodes will be this way since were not going to get resolve the Abel thing till the end of the season I'm sure. However it looks like we might get some back history episodes with John Teller which should be interesting.
This season was garbage. Seasons 1-4 were top notch and 7 was pretty decent.. but the rest were crap. THis season finale was just a rehash of the end of s4 i believe when they faked his death and he disappeared.. I think Chloe cried then too. The writers, unfortunately, lost there creativity on what stories to tell and what to do with Jack year after year. THis artice alone tells the story, they didnt know they were going to be cancelled when the season started and they were scrambling along while with the plot while they were filming episodes. Its a recipe for disaster, which this season ended up being. I'm glad its over, I only wished they had killed Jack off so we wouldnt have a movie coming.
too bad theres haters of the ending.. not sure what they were expecting. All along the island was just the backdrop and setting for these characters and there stories. The Saywer/Juliette scene was amazing. I loved this ending, Jack dying on the island while at the same time all of them moving to the afterlife was so moving and powerful. Truly fantastic writing.
so many people totally missing what happened in this amazing finale. THe island events did happen to these characters. Some died on the island others like Saywer, Kate, Lapidus, Ben and Miles got off the island. Christian's dad explained it perfectly, all the oceanic 6 and there loved ones died at some point and they couldnt move on to heavan without coming together in the afterlife first. It was a great end to a great show.
