Sons of Anarchy Season 7 Spoilers and Preview

January 20, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Sons of Anarchy season 7 is coming out sometime fall 2014, and spoilers have been coming out.

Let’s take a look at some of them:

-Show creator Kurt Sutter knew fairly early on that Tara would die before the final season, and at one point thought she might die in season 2, he told TVLine. 

-Tara’s death and Opie’s death are going to combine into a major impact on Jax. “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,” Sutter said. “What direction it will push him in we will see next season. But 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 in the final season.”

-Unser doesn’t know what happened, so he can’t tell Jax, Sutter said via Twitter.

-Peter Fonda will not be on the show next season, Sutter told a fan on Twitter.

-Juice’s (and Gemma’s) future is uncertain. “Knowing that he’s betrayed Jax is not necessarily a place that you want to be in in the outlaw community… I don’t think it was a calculated move on Juice’s part [to save Gemma]; in the moment he did what was expected of him,” Sutter said. But now the great thing is that we get this rich dynamic between the two of them. They were tied with the whole Clay of it all and now they’re deeply tied with this secret… Now we have really something fun to play with.”

-Next season will pick up where the finale left off. “I don’t want to lose the weight of what’s happened [in the finale],” Sutter said. “There may be a little bit of time [passed] like we had this season, which will be a few weeks… But there won’t be a vast amount of time.”

-Also, Wendy Case (Drea de Matteo) will be getting a lot more screen time, reported Entertainment Weekly. De Matteo has been upgraded to a series regular.
