Tuesday is coming. The end begins at 10pm on FX. Are you ready? Everyone gears up for Sons of Anarchy in different ways. Here are some ideas of how you can prepare for the final season premiere.
Marathon the whole series.
Seasons 1-5 are on Netflix and season 6 is available to buy in stores and online. If you need to catch up, this is the way to go. However, considering there are only three and a half days left before the season 7 premiere, this plan is likely to bring forth all those emotions you’ve been shoving back down. You’ll be a total mess by Tuesday.
Hit the liquor store.
If you drink, this is going to be a drinking season. It’s the last damn season and as David Labrava said on Twitter, “NO ONES GOING TO THE HOSPITAL THIS TIME THEY JUST GONNA DIE LIKE ALOT.” Just don’t drink every time someone says Jesus Christ. You’ll be dead before the 45 minute mark.
Beg Kurt Sutter on Twitter for your favorite character’s life.
It’s a more than useless exercise since I don’t think anyone has ever managed to talk Sutter out of a body count but it might make you feel better. The final episode is probably written but it hasn’t been shot yet. Translation: For the endlessly hopeful SoA fan, there’s still time. Put in a good word for Tig and Juice, will you?
Clear off your DVR.
If you’re like me, your DVR is always low on space. This being it as far as SoA goes, you can bet something crazy will go down in every episode that you’ll want to rewatch. You don’t want to have to make last minute keep it/delete it decisions. Be advised all episodes this season are going to run long, so don’t expect 60 minute episodes.
Make sure to hide any Facebook friends that post spoilers.
Odds are Sons are going to be dropping dead left and right this season and no one wants to find out on Facebook. Now is the time to hide those friends with zero regard for other people, especially if you can’t watch SoA on Tuesday nights. Pro tip: Don’t go on Twitter until you’re caught up. Just don’t.
This is it. It’s sad and it sucks but we’re all part of something pretty epic. Most of us have committed hard to this series, defending our favorite characters and never missing an episode. This is our last hurrah and we had damn well better ride this season until the wheels fall off. No matter what, SAMCRO never dies. I’m not letting it go. Are you?
What are you doing to prepare for Tuesday’s premiere? Which characters do you want to survive?
