While Tara’s death will affect almost all of SAMCRO at the beginning of the show’s final season, that doesn’t mean Maggie Siff will actually be there.
Showrunner Kurt Sutter recently spoke to TVLine and opened up about his reluctance to use flashbacks on the series.
“I’ve never done flashbacks or dream sequences on this show. They tend to pull me out of the reality of a show like this. Although The Sopranos used them very effectively with Tony, it doesn’t make sense for Jax to experience that.”
Sutter did say that the character who would be the most affected by Tara’s death would be the woman who killed her.
“Gemma has this odd, remorse-[driven] dialogue with Tara throughout the season,” he previews, “as if she’s sitting right there next to her.”
