After many ups and downs in the club and various personal tragedies, the series finale of Sons of Anarchy saw Jax Teller’s death, but why did he have to die? In 2008, viewers were taken to a small town in California to meet a motorcycle club and their various conflicts in the drama series Sons of Anarchy, created by Kurt Sutter. Sons of Anarchy was very well-received from the beginning, with critics praising its tone, themes, and the performances of the main cast, allowing it to live on for a total of seven seasons, coming to an end in 2014.
Sons of Anarchy covers the life and death of Jackson “Jax” Teller (Charlie Hunnam), VP of the motorcycle club Sons of Anarchy in the fictional town of Charming, California. The series kicks off when Jax finds a manifesto written by his late father, John Teller, one of the founding members of the club, and in which he shared his vision and plans for the club, which don’t match those of the club’s current President (and Jax’s stepfather), Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman). This discovery leads Jax to question the club’s path and history, his relationships, family, and himself, but in the end, after everything he goes through for the sake of the club and his family, his plans for the future of the club don’t go as expected – and he got an appropriate ending in the Sons of Anarchy finale.
