There are no spoilers for the upcoming series finale of Sons Of Anarchy in this Newswire, though if you haven’t seen last week’s, there will be in a minute for that one. Now, to the current tidbit: Sons Of Anarchy: The Official Collector’s Edition book is due for release next Wednesday, December 10—the day after the series finale airs. Apparently some copies were shipped out early (as so often happens with books), and they apparently feature major spoilers for the end of the show. Sutter took to Twitter, as he is wont to do, dropping c-bombs and threatening those who would spoiler-sully his show with total destruction. (Key line, in case you don’t want to read the whole thing: “I assure you, by the time I am done, my fucking basket will be filled with heads of incompetent cunts.”) Below, the entire text of his screed. In short: Don’t read the book until after you’ve finished the show. NEXT WEEK.
As far as we know, Sutter didn’t freak out last week when an online auction of Sons props accidentally revealed the death of a major character from last week’s episode: It was [spoiler for last week’s episode ahead] Unser’s bloody clothing, with the description reading something like, “the last outfit he ever wore.” Anyway, here’s the full text of the freakout:
“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.”
