BWW Recap: SONS OF ANARCHY Turns a Porn Party into an AssassinationBWW Recap: SONS OF ANARCHY Turns a Porn Party into an Assassination
by Desiree Fantal - Sep 10, 2014

In the weeks leading up to the season premiere of FX's SONS OF ANARCHY, there was much talk about how gruesome and shocking the first few minutes of the show would be. Viewer discretion would be highly advised. Thinking back to many past episodes, this advisory seemed wise. The show started with a series of “Last season on SOA” clips to get you both excited for what was to come and angry about what had already occurred. Creator Kurt Sutter is known for toying with our emotions this way. The scenes transitioned to one of Jax (Charlie Hunnam) in prison, beating the hell out of some guy. I watched the premiere with a friend who was new to SOA. He asked who Jax's victim was and though I squinted my eyes to 20/20 vision, I couldn't tell who he was through all the blood, sweat and tears. (more...)
