Having previously watched The Shield which was written by Kurt Sutter, I'm wondering if the ending of the Sons of Anarchy was a twisted or ironic ending like The Shield had. Kurt's writing is very twisted and dark as he demonstrates several times including Otto (played by Kurt) being tortured and raped.
So at face value, the ending seemed poetic. But I can't help but wonder if it had a deeper meaning.
I'm talking about the very end, where Jax takes his own life
I watched the after show and they did discuss the ending as well as Kurt's "edge" on The Shield and what he added to it, but they didn't go too deep on the SOA ending.
Am I just looking for something that doesn't exist? SOA while gritty and violent, was kind of wholesome and The Shield was not. Was it simply a poetic ending?
