I haven't reviewed in a while but the final episode of SOA could not be left without something said. I know it's Thanksgiving and I have the scent of home cooking wafting into this room so I'll make it short.
This show has suprised me in so many ways. I have said this before but the writing of the show is truly genius. Part of the reason I have stopped reviewing the show is for the simple fact that its hard to put into words how this show speaks to me. I'm not even sure what it is that I actually enjoy so much.
The cast is phenominal. Charlie Hunnam has portrayed Jackson Teller better than I could have imagined and Katey Sagal has just knocked my socks off! I really hope Kurt Sutter is satisfied because I don't think any other actors could have portrayed this show as amazingly as the chosen cast.
That being said, the final two episodes were just heart wrenching. The death of Donna at the hands of the club was almost too much to bear, and when Jax found out about it all...Oh My God! I can really appreciate him stopping Tyge from killing the young girl to help the club. It would have gone against the one small strain of self control Sam Crow actually had. And the fact that Jax, along with everybody else, thinks he has the only copy of his fathers book, but it turns out the whole time Piney had one as well.
After this tragic event I have to say that once Jax took off that cut I really didn't think I would see him putting it back on. At least not yet. But now that the fate of some of the club hangs in the balance and things have gotten out of control things will be different. Yes, it is most definatly time for a change.
Jax's exit of just one small simple word left me wondering yet oh so satisfied at the same time. I am dying to find out what is to come for Sam Crow in the future seasons. There better be future seasons! Get out there and watch the damn show people! Because this underestimated show is quite possibly the best thing out there.
Its is the holiday season people, so go spend it with your families and be sure to tell them just how much they mean to you. Happy Thanksgiving everybody.
Until next season..
