So that we don't have to worry about spoilers.
I thought that the finale had it's moments but really didn't take any risks or make any big moves. In the end I think it ended too predictably. That isn't to say that season 4 wasn't great and that the next season won't be great. But I felt that after about 12 really strong episodes these last 2 were a let down. Tara staying in Charming, Clay is still alive, the government is basically off the Sons completely, it seems like everything wrapped up too nicely. There was the little thing at the end about some potential beef with the Niners in Oakland which might carry over and be a big focus of next season. Also, why was there almost no violence? I'm not saying that SOA is only good if there is violence, because the drama is great, but this is a crime show which has had some seriously awesome action scenes this season. No big buildups or shootouts though, just Jax taking the gavel which was sort of obvious, I mean come on, no one actually thought he was gonna leave. The Tara- Jemma stare off at the end was sort of cool, but I get the sense that Jemma got what she wanted and that whole familial drama is a moot point now. I sense next season will have a lot of the Niners trying to get revenge and Opie stirring shit up.
