Tonight marks the season finale of FX's "Sons of Anarchy" with a special 90 minute episode. We complained at the beginning of November about the show getting a little off course with SAMCRO's bizarre jaunt to Ireland, a multi-episode arc that probably went 2 episodes too-long. Still, the final episode in Ireland a couple weeks ago showed that series creator Kurt Sutter and his writing team is one of the most capable working today. Last week's episode was the big setup for tonight's climax where SAMCRO will try to clean up all their problems in Charming: exacting vengeance while ensuring they spend the least amount of time in jail possible.

What To Look For: Series creator Kurt Sutter's cameo appearance as Otto; resolution of the deal with Agent June Stahl; resolution with Jimmy O'Phelan - will SAMCRO get their blood debt paid? Will Gemma be sent away for a long time? Will the Doc get rescued? Believe it or not, all of these questions get answered tonight in a manner that doesn't feel rushed or overly neat. Also, the finale starts with a sequence of shots that really establishes that SAMCRO is a true family to these people, many of whom who have done terrible things. Are criminals allowed to have families? "Sons of Anarchy" has managed, yet again, to entertain while asking some deep questions very subtly.
