The violent and bloody FX motorcycle drama that unexpectedly captured the imaginations of Americans from all walks of life is preparing for its seventh and final season. In anticipation, FX premiered a short teaser that is open to all kinds of interpretation, and none of it good.
At first, the footage seems innocent enough. It’s a shot of Charlie Hunnam riding his bike down the highway. We’d point out that he looks pretty angry, but he always looks that way as Jax.
It’s when the lightning flashes, though, that a dark foreshadowing is revealed. With every flash, Hunnam’s face is replaced by a skull, creating an image almost like Death in leather … or Ghost Rider with his head fire extinguished.
Fans have from now until September to try and figure out what it means.
Is it death coming for SAMCRO, or is it that Hunnam has become death after his devastating loss at the close of Season 6. Perhaps no one will survive this final ride.
