Although the repercussions Jax (Charlie Hunnam) must face in light of SAMCRO's legal troubles seem to be crystal clear, his emotional state and where it will take the character in season 7 of FX's Sons of Anarchy still remains unpredictable yet potentially troublesome.
On Dec. 10, creator Kurt Sutter gave TVLine some insight on the Sons president, and what appears to be his complete unraveling amid the recent death of his wife Tara (Maggie Siff).
"Obviously it's a major shift in the mythology. I knew, ultimately, where I wanted to take Jax in [the] final season... I wanted to remove his 'True North,' because I feel like there needs to be this major psychic and emotional shift that has to happen. What direction it will push him in we will see next season," he said.
With Tara's murder being at the hands of his mother Gemma (Katey Sagal) in season 6 and the loss of his best friend Opie (Ryan Hurst) to a deadly prison beating, Sutter pointed out that Jax has the potential to go completely off the handle.
"What happens to a guy like that now that he's lost both of the people he loves the most, who were able to be his moral compass, with Opie and now Tara. It really is Jax completely untethered and on his own final season," he said.
Not only will Jax have to contend with his wife's death while dealing with legal troubles SAMCRO faces for their involvement in the gun trade, but he's also yet to find out his mother was behind Tara's slaying, which could take his character into a whole new realm of conflict.
While no official air date has yet to be confirmed, SOA is set to return for its seventh and final season at some point in the fall of 2014. Be sure to keep checking back with Enstars for more details.
