What the fuck is up with Sons of Anarchy? Last season’s detour to Ireland tried our patience, but the theme this season seems to be beat a bitch down. In the single worst narrative decision in television history, Jax mercilessly bloodied Ima. With this beating, Sutter killed lady-boners everywhere. Jax has totally lost his appeal now. If you think the female constituency doesn’t matter, ask who controls the remote in your house. Tara’s crippled with a van door smashed hand courtesy of Clay’s ordered hit gone wrong. Even the usually powerful Gemma survived a flinch-inducing face fisting from her husband. Hate women much Sutter? The writers may rationalize the misogyny to seal Clay’s identity as a wife-beating villain unworthy of survival, but who will pull the trigger? Usually, in these scenarios, the violence against women is used as a justification for vengeance by another man. You know, some tired white-knight-damsel-in-distress cliché. Has Sutter managed to fully alienate his female audience, or is there still time to repair the damage in the final episodes of the season?
