The chaos continues in Son’s Of Anarchy!

Steve Perotti, TSV Staff Writer

The sixth season of FX’s outlaw motorcycle series “Son’s Of Anarchy” is only two episodes deep and the hits just keep on coming! The second episode of the new season, titled “One One Six,” did not disappoint when it came to surprising moments. However, some of the edgier decisions come off as forced, if not insincere, and made the viewer wonder, “Where is all of this madness going exactly?”

The blowback from the ending of the season premiere closes out the show as protagonist Jax Teller, played by Charlie Hunnam, is bonding with new business partner Collete Jane. They begin to hit the club as well as the surrounding areas of Stockton and the East Bay as a whole. Connections are made between the shooter; an unsettling child suffering from self-mutilation issues as well as a possible martyr complex; and the gang, headed up by Teller’s new partner in business and in crime, Nero Padilla, played by Jimmy Smitts.

It’s needless to say, but there will be tremendous consequences as city officials along with season bad guy Lee Toric, played by Donal Logue, begin to connect the gun used in the shooting to the club – the club which just so happens to sell massive amounts of weapons.

Moving on to the prison setting, two things happen: first, Tara is released from prison. In all honesty, I was perfectly comfortable with her staying in prison, but her release does make for some interesting moments that I will leave for you to discover on your own.

Second, Clay is willing to make a deal with Toric to turn state’s evidence against the Sons and his step-son Jax. There’s no real surprise there, but it might lead to his inevitable death, which would be much more enjoyable to watch!

All in all, the season is off to a very interesting start and I for one definitely can’t wait to see where it all goes. Obviously I have a few ideas and predictions pertaining to what will happen, which I will be keeping to myself of course, but I have been wrong before when it comes to this show. Creator Kurt Sutter has consecutively done a masterful job of keeping his audiences glued to the show only to surprise them in the end. Sutter has gone on record saying that the following seventh season will be the final season of the show. That should make the windup to the climactic season all the more enjoyable.
