Sons Of Anarchy Spoilers: Why Did Writers Choose Not To Air Tara’s Funeral In Episode 1?

In last night’s season premiere of Sons of Anarchy, producers chose not to air Tara’s funeral.

In a recent interview with, the show’s creator, Kurt Sutter, discussed the decision.

“We have done a lot of funerals on the show already ā€” [like] Donna’s funeral,” Sutter said. “It felt a little too obvious. And I liked the fact that Jax didn’t want to be there when the body was put in the ground. It was simple, quiet and functional. It wasn’t going to be an event that you would normally see on a TV show. We have that moment [during the opening montage] with Unser, and that’s how we acknowledge it.”
