While fans wait for the new footage that will surely be coming out of Sons of Anarchy's Comic-Con 2014 panel, FX has debuted a brief, 20-second trailer preview for Sons of Anarchy's seventh and final season. The full trailer debuts during tonight's episode of Tyrant.
Entitled "Hell Awaits," the preview shows Charlie Hunnam as Jax, riding solo down on a lonely road, as glimpses of SAMCRO's skull logo are flashed under Jax's hood. Will anyone make it out of charming alive? Take a look at the first teaser, then read on for more information about Season 7, but there will be spoilers if you aren't caught up at this point.
EW points out that this video is likely an homage to Hamlet, particularly the Gravediggers scene where Hamlet sees the skull of Yorick, as the Gravediggers contemplate giving Ophelia, who committed suicide, a Christian burial. This scene from William Shakespeare's classic play is somewhat similar to how SOA fans are torn about how to mourn the death of Tara (Maggie Siff), after Gemma (Katey Sagal) killed her last season.
Theo Rossi, who plays Juice, also spoke about the show's Hamlet comparisons, while teasing that none of the cast members plan on making it out of Charming alive.
"A lot of people say that because of the whole Hamlet [comparison], and let's be honest, every year we lose major characters left and right. The season six finale, I think, was the most shocking episode we ever did in every way. You have dreams of being the last guy standing, the one riding off, but you know, I've done a lot of bad things.'"
Will all of SAMCRO meet their makers when Sons of Anarchy comes to an end this fall? Chime in with your thoughts below, and stay tuned for the full trailer later tonight.
