I love the people who think the suicide by truck was out of nowhere even though Jax was riding JT's bike and killed himself the same way JT died (which has been suggested to have been suicide). It was the plan all along.

A lot of people wanted Jax to go out bloody and violent but him going out as some type of martyr for his kids and the club made a lot of sense to me. its always been a theme of the show. Making the club legitimate.

But he didn't go out as a martyr.  He went out as the same shortsighted self-involved asshole he always was. Lets face it, everyone he killed after learning that Gemma killed Tara and that the club was going to have a mayhem over him offing the other pres was just Jax being a murderous fugstick.  I mean you don't get to plan or carry out the murder of dozens of people and the abandonment of your children and still claim to be some kind of reluctant outlaw.

 

I said earlier in this thread that this had been one of the better seasons and I'm going to go back on that.  I don't know if its because I basically watched this season over a few days last weekend on iTunes and with little to no time to ruminate on the episodes in between seeing them or what but after reflecting on it a bit it was just fuging sloppy and lazy.  What was with all of the boo-hooing and hardened outlaw tears if the club was just going to turn around and let Jax walk?

 

 

I don't really know what more I expected from a show that had slid so far down from the heights of the first couple of seasons but is was most definitely more.

I think his death was intended to feel like a martyrs death. He accepted he wasn't a good guy and was going to sacrifice himself to make sure his kids had nothing to do with that lifestyle and that the club would get out illegal stuff. Tie up all loose ends and die like his father did.

 

There were plenty of not so subtle biblical references throughout the entire episode to Jax being some kind of Jesus figure giving up his life...

Sutter really did a number on the show there after 3/4 seasons.   Obviously too much of his wife (Gemma) and her singing, but he started taking his own show a bit too serious (I mean look at the finale with the comparisons to Christ/sacrifice).  He screwed up Jax's character to where there was nothing even remotely redeemable about him.

 

I think this season was kind of "meh" because of the lack of Ron Perlman, it really took a hit without him and then too much Gemma, obviously.

 

You can't take a show like this too serious Sutter, because it's not even believable (as if Charming and all this wouldn't be on the news).
