Kurt Sutter Apologizes To Fans For ‘Sons Of Anarchy’ Finale Spoiler Leak
Kurt Sutter took to Twitter Friday afternoon to offer an apology to fans after a major spoiler from the Sons of Anarchy finale was leaked. Sutter says he is to blame.
Warning: This article contains spoilers. If you wish to avoid any spoilers related to the final episode of SOA, please stop reading here.
Fans have been guessing all season what will happen to Jax Teller as the Sons of Anarchy series is coming to its end. Although many fans speculate Jax will die, no fan will know for certain until Jax’s ending plays out on the TV screen, especially given the twists and turns that Kurt Sutter throws at viewers. However, as reported earlier by Inquisitr, an excited fan leaked a major death spoiler on Facebook that is a definite give away as to what will happen to Jax. While the leak was unconfirmed at the time the Inquisitr article was published, Kurt Sutter may have just confirmed the leak with his apology.
The spoiler apparently comes from a companion book, Sons of Anarchy: The Official Collector’s Edition, that is set to go on sale the day after the finale. According to Variety, a wholesaler released the book well before the Wednesday, December 10 on-sale date.
Understandably upset that a page in the book with these types of details has made its way onto the net, Sutter apologized to fans earlier this afternoon via Twitlonger for this major screw up.
“This book contains details about the final episode of the series. This, my friends is a storyteller’s worst nightmare. I wanted this book to be a compliment to the show. It contains personal messages and photos from the cast, in-depth behind the scenes information and detailed breakdown of episodes. It’s a smart, well-conceived book that I was very excited for the fans to have. AFTER the motherf***ing finale. There are a thousand f***ing people I can blame. And I assure you, by the time I am done, my f***ing basket will be filled with heads of incompetent c****. But as far as the fans go, the burden is on me. I f***ed up. It was my idea for the book, so ultimately, I am to blame.”
Sutter goes on to say in his post that he hopes fans tune in to the SOA season finale as it plays better than it reads.
The Facebook fan page from which the leak originated went into lock down mode earlier in the day, likely due to fear of backlash for posting such a spoiler.
The Sons of Anarchy finale airs December 9 at 10 p.m. on FX.
