Jax killed Gemma last week to zero surprise, but necessary. Jax spills the beans to the club on what he is doing and asks them to vote for a meeting with Mr. Mayhem. We get rid of the Irish dudes with the help of the Oracle. Jax gives the boys to Wendy and Nero to be taken away. He visits the graves of Tara where he leaves his wedding ring. At Opie's grave, he leaves his SAMCRO rings.

Jax returns to see the group has elected Chips as their leader with Tig as VP. The boys vote to kill Jax, but can't go through it. Jax goes to where JT died, hopes the boys make it out and shots a cop. Jax leads the cops on a high speed chase where he rams his bike in to Michael Chykalis's truck. Jax dies appears to have died in the collision though we never see a body.

So, after seven years, this where end. Most of the crew is dead including the Teller family sans the boys. Jax's children, we hope end up being safe, but who knows. There is an ominous scene of Able playing with Jax's ring like he did. SAMCRO will continue on, but who knows how long that will last. I do think the final two seasons went into a bloody crazed mess. The show should have killed Clay in Season 4 after all that he did and ended in Season 5. Still, the first four seasons and even season 5 were some good TV.

Outside of the crappy CGI in the end, a very fitting finale with Biblical overtones.

- The homeless lady is the Angel of Death.
- SAMCRO (sans Jax) are the Apostles. Juice is Judas
- The wine & bread are the body & blood of Christ.

This show did an amazing job painting many of the characters various shades of grey throughout the years. With the exception of maybe Chuckie, Nero and the crazy ATF lady in the early seasons. No one was portrayed as irredeemably evil or the a one-sided "Big bad" of the season. Where as some more popular shows give off the dread of "which one your favorites NOT the most popular characters in the franchise will we possibly kill off this week." SOA's (and Sutter's) motivation seemed to be "how can I make you like a character, hate a character, and then get you to love them or vice versa".

As much as I wanted Gemma to get what she deserved, when a tired weary Jax showed up at her old house and started following her around like the grim reaper. Face long and eyes red from the heaviness of what he had to do the waterworks started for me. That scene perfectly symbolized the ever-shifting dichotomy and depth of the outlaws that people will foolishly dismiss because the show is centered around bikers.

I hated Jaxx by the end of that episode. In the middle of his very proactive last day on Earth he's holding his son one last time in the middle of cleaning up his last mistakes (the key cleaning ingredient: Blood) and says "my sons should hate me for who I am. A criminal." Possibly (hopefully) severing the Teller lineage to bloodshed. I don't know though, that Abel's been through some shit and has some cold eyes. He doesn't even smile anymore.

I'm looking forward to seeing what Sutter does next.

You can sarcastically say: "everybody dies" as a spoiler and you wouldn't be far from the truth.

The series ends just when I was finally beginning to understand what Chibs was saying. "Arf slub rufer, Jackie Boy" seemed to be about 50% of his lines. He's a character I didn't care for, initially, but he grew on me and became one of my favorites. "Aye". Although I will say that his relationship with Althea Jarry seemed to come out of nowhere, this season.

I kept thinking SAMCRO had killed all the Irish guys and cut ties with them back in Season 4/5. So I didn't have much patience with seeing them, again, in the finale.

Liked that "TO" officially joined the crew. I'm foggy on what that meant for the Grim Bastards, though. I think a good chunk of them died fighting Marx's thugs, right?

So many times, over the seasons, it seemed like they were backed against a wall... but then things always miraculously worked out through some twist of fate. They seemed to stop doing that in Season 5 and it became almost gratuitous with the constant killings and violence.

My Old Lady was a little disappointed that there wasn't a final "Jax Butt Shot".

The homeless lady (Angel of Death; thanks for pointing that out, BTW)-- had she been seen before these last two episodes? The fact that Jax seemed to recognize her confused me. Or should I just chalk up the recognition to some supernatural perception on Jax's part?

I refer to her as the Oracle. She showed up every season starting with season one. She told Gemma, "Abel will save my kids." She also gave a blanket to Jax in the season one finale and told him where to find water. She shows up now and again when shit goes down to the point in season 4, Jax goes for his gun. Kinda disappointed they never delivered on the Abel line unless we come back 10 years from now.

He's already working another show for FX called "The Bastard Executioner".

The homeless lady was supposed to be a woman who was killed in the wreck that killed Jax's dad.

Overall a poor final season to one of my favorite shows.

Good to see Vic Mackey taking out one more POS criminal.

Yeah TO mentioned that the Grim Bastards numbers were low early this season. Jax in that scene asked him which of his members did he feel could lead in his place and I think TO championed Theo Huxtable as his go to guy, which now I see was foreshadowing.

How pissed is the ghost of Juice knowing that a black man is at the table? Literally butthurt probably.

I didn't read The Bastard Executioner link. Just let me know when it debuts. I'm throwing a party.
