Sons was, without a doubt, one of my favorite new shows of 2008, and so I was delighted to see its return for season 2 this week. Check out my thoughts on the season premiere after the jump …(spoilers ahoy)
Wow! yeah thats right, wow! The season opener of Kurt Sutter’s Sons of Anarchy was just great. There was so much in there, I may just have to go back and watch it again. Inherited from last season we have the murder of Opie’s wife, at the behest of Clay (albeit accidently), Jax’s accompanying suspicions, and of course all the accompanying tension within the club about exactly where its future lies.
Well straight outa the gate season 2 brings us MOAR. Alan Arkin and Henry Rollins are introduced as the League of something or other, (a white seperatist movement), looking to make a move on Charming. Opie gets his revenge on an unwitting mayan, Jax comes clean with Tara about what the Club is all about, and then of course there’s the ending. Unhappy with Clay’s rebuttal of their request to stop dealing arms to the Mayans and the 1-9ers, the league arrange for Gemma’s kidnap and subsequent gang-rape.
Talk about setting up the season to come! Simply top class.
