“Sons of Anarchy” creator Kurt Sutter is teasing fans with Season 7 drama. The mastermind behind the FX series revealed to his Twitter followers just how bloody the final installment of the show is going to be when it returns in September.
“On a scale of 1 to Red Wedding, what are we in for here?” @Wumpaa asked Sutter on July 1.
“Let’s just say you’ll soon be calling that other episode BED WETTING,” Sutter responded.

That’s a bold statement considering the Red Wedding was just about the most horrific episode in “Game of Thrones” history. For those who aren’t familiar with the HBO fantasy series, the Red Wedding was a massacre that took place at the Twins and nearly annihilated all of the Stark family and their 3,500 bannermen.
What made the attack so shocking is that Lord Walder Frey violated the sacred laws of hospitality, which dictate that if a guest eats the food and drinks the drink off a host’s table and beneath the host’s roof than neither the guest can harm his host or vice versa during their stay. To break this sacred covenant will result in the wrath of the gods, both old and new.
So, is Sutter suggesting fans will see their fair share of slit throats and treachery in Season 7? We think so – especially after the executive producer warned fans that they “should all be worried” when episode 1 airs.
Sutter revealed the title for the first episode is “Black Widower.” Chilling, no? Perhaps the episode title is in reference to Jax coping with the shocking death of Tara, who was ironically killed by Jax’s mom, Gemma. The show’s protagonist, however, has no idea how bad his mother has been. And we have to admit, we can’t wait to see how he responds when he learns the truth behind the death of his wife.
Maybe Sutter is right about the Red Wedding being a walk in the park compared to the Season 7 premiere of “SoA.”
