Sons of Anarchy adeptly rides into its final season with a premiere full of what fans have come to expect - gripping sadism and brutal consequences.
Mostly, I wanted something deeper, more resonant from SOA: Maybe a meditation on the horror of gun violence... Instead, I'm left with a bitter echo of Cassavetes: I love this show. It's so stupid.
Sure, there was plenty of anarchy and pending drama, but it was lacking the passion that fans are used to seeing associated with Jax and the other main characters. Jax's delivery overall was lackluster, too.
Sons of Anarchy has always been a show that borders on torture porn, and "Black Widower" was no exception to that sadistic streak. With relish, the show seems set to rip the teeth out of anyone necessary... along the way to its final ride.
Season seven is off to an awesome start, screaming down the freeway through a river of blood and guts and pathos. We all know how this is going to end: brutally.
If there's one thing Sutter is good for, it's for filling time. He's got a lot of time to fill this year, and I am excited as hell to see how it comes together.
With characters like Nero, Unser or Wendy at the helm, as well as the show's even blend of brotherhood and black humor well intact, "Black Widower" provides a satisfying, if brutal thesis for the show's final year, and the gathering storm ahead.
The scene that takes place between Jax and Juice ranks as one of the most gripping in Sons history.
There's a sense of real consequence running throughout the episode, and that makes what's lurking around the bend seem more exciting than usual.
The final ride has begun for Sons of Anarchy and it looks like it might be the bloodiest run of episodes yet.
If the season premiere is any indication, Sons of Anarchy is setting up to go out on a high note.
