Review: Sons of Anarchy Season 6 Premier “Straw” (No Spoilers)

sons1The long awaited season 6 of the hit FX show Sons of Anarchy premiered last night.  Many of the critics were talking for weeks before the show’s return about how shocking the premier episode was going to be, and that it was.

Season 6 picks up 2-3 weeks after where season 5 left off.  We see the return of our favorite key characters and a few other familiar faces as well as some of the characters that were just coming into play last season like Donal Logue as Lee Toric and Jimmy Smits as Nero Padilla.  Like every season, we meet a couple new players, a male and a female, I won’t go too far into them because I don’t want to spoil it for those that have not seen it yet.  I will say that both new comers present new opportunities for SAMCRO and Deosa.  Jax is looking to attempt legit business for SAMCRO, but will he pull it off this season or will problems arise?

There have been some changes at the table, a new VP and a new Sargent at Arms, which becomes obvious in the opening sequence of the episode.  As we all know Tara and Clay spend the opening episode in prison, where I’m sure at least Clay will be for the majority of the season.  Lee Toric of course tries to work on them to get what he wants like last season.  A bit more light is also shed on how Tara ended up in prison. Everyone’s favorite loose cannon Tig has a couple very “Tig” moments.  A key member of the group is also trying to make a break from Charming and a couple of others hash out a couple of problems with one another.

Perhaps the most shocking part of this episode was the last 15 to 20 minutes.  The ending to this episode could possibly be the most shocking, hard to watch ending in Sons of Anarchy history.

I think season 6 is shaping up to be one of the most must watch seasons.  If the rest of the season is going to be anything like the premier, it is going to be the best yet.  Kurt Sutter has really pulled out all the stops for season 6.
