With Sons of Anarchy ending its memorable seven-season run this coming Tuesday, speculation has run rampant about who is going to make it out of Charming, Calif. alive. Unfortunately, some people accidentally found out by accident what’s going to happen.
A book entitled The Sons Of Anarchy: The Official Collector’s Edition was supposed to ship the day after the finale, but due to an error went out a week early. Series creator Kurt Sutter took to his TwitLonger today to address the mishap:
It has been brought to my attention that our SOA Collector's Edition Book has been sent out a week early by some distributors and book outlets. 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 motherfucking finale. There are a thousand fucking people I can blame. And I assure you, by the time I am done, my fucking basket will be filled with heads of incompetent cunts. But as far as the fans go, the burden is on me. I fucked up. It was my idea for the book, so ultimately, I am to blame. So if you received a book, I apologize. I ask that you not share your wrath or pain or opinion in social media so as to not spoil the experience of others. There is no excuse for utter ineptitude. It pains me that this will be the parting memory of some fans. I hope you all tune in for the finale. It plays much better than it reads.
That’s quite an emphatic way to control the situation. If you’ve gotten the book already, it’s probably safe to assume you’re way too scared of incurring Sutter’s wrath to go and spoil the show for everyone else. You don’t want to end up in his “head basket.”
