This is a series I, and I am sure loads of others, did not think could interest me. Who cares about a biker gang? What stories surrounding them could be interesting to tell and watch. The thing is that I totally underestimated creator Kurt Sutter’s (writer on the series The Wire) ability to draw you in to a totally human story. That is what Sons of Anarchy has been through its entire run. It is a series based upon the life of a thirtysomething man who happens to be part of a motorcycle gang. As are his parents and the club has become his family. He is now a father and trying to provide a good home and living for his young son. It is a human and very relatable story.
All six previous seasons have led up to what is happening now. Previous decisions made by the characters are now coming back to wreak havoc. Death, grief, violence and lies will move the story forward to its conclusion. We will see who will live or who will die.
