Kurt Sutter: I wanted “Sons of Anarchy” to end unambiguously
“I wasn't sure how much of it I was going to leave up to the imagination of people,” the “Sons of Anarchy” creator explained on “Anarchy Afterward.” There was talk of leaving the finale open ended. “And then,” he adds, “ultimately I felt like this has not been a show of' ‘what ifs,' to a certain extent. This has always been a show about direct, specific choices and direct, specific consequences. So I realized I needed to be clear in terms of whether it happened or it didn't.” PLUS: What a fitting and unpredictable end, Sutter touched all the bases and cleaned up all the loose ends, “SOA” went out like it wanted to – without compromise, and all about the finale”s swan song.
