‘Sons of Anarchy' spoilers: More on Charlie Hunnam’s Jax, ‘Black Widower’

August 11, 2014

FX has just unveiled some of the first details regarding the “Sons of Anarchy” season 7 premiere, and there are two adjectives that we can use to describe them: Short, and effective. It doesn’t give you anything more than what you need to know, and that is perfectly fine with us given how excited we are right now.

Let us start here first of all with the title of “Black Widower,” and just how awesome that is in itself. Sometimes showrunner Kurt Sutter goes obscure with his titles, or chooses them from another language in a way that makes this show feel like T.S. Eliot. This one is easy to decipher: Jax Teller is alone and without Tara, he is going to go down an epic path of revenge. It’s a nice little twist on the common Black Widow motif, and it is certainly appropriate.

FX never reveals much in the way of a synopsis for this show … and this time is no exception:

“In the wake of Tara’s death, Jax makes vengeance a club priority.”

Surely, you knew this to be true already, thanks mostly to everything that you have probably seen and heard from Sutter and others. Kurt wrote this episode, and it is directed by none other that executive producer and frequent director Paris Barclay, who has a habit of being at the helm for premieres.
