I’m so happy to hear FX did this. After seeing what Kurt Sutter had said in different tweets via his Twitter, I was left hoping FX might allow him the time slot for a 90 minute or even a rare two hour finale, but this is just as sweet. Thank you FX!

Collider.com posted a new synopsis for ‘Blackbird’ starring Charlie, Olivia Wilde and Eric Bana.
Siblings Addison (Eric Bana) and Liza (Olivia Wilde) are on the run with the stolen cash from a casino heist gone wrong. Meanwhile, troubled ex-boxer Jay (Charlie Hunnam) heads for a Thanksgiving homecoming with his parents, June (Sissy Spacek) and retired sheriff Chet (Kris Kristofferson).
When Addison shoots a state trooper, he and Liza split up and make a run for the border. Addison heads cross-country, creating mayhem in his wake. Meanwhile, Jay picks up Liza, who has decided to hitch-hike to the nearest town. The young couple spends the night together stranded in a snowstorm. Their connection is instant, and as the attraction builds, they start to realize that fate has brought them together. Jay must make one more stop before they cross the border, his parents’ house where only evil awaits…

Question: Got any scoop on Sons of Anarchy? —Diane N.
Ausiello: Funny story: I was five minutes into next week’s episode when my screener exploded inside my DVD player — that’s how incendiary the hour is. As I await a new disc to arrive from FX, Matt Mitovich — whose DVD of course worked perfectly fine — offers this tantalizing preview. “So, so, so much happens in next week’s episode. Seriously, Piney’s death – while significant and sad – becomes but a blip on the radar. Whereas this week’s hour ends with a tangible cloud of dread hanging in the air, the Nov. 8 episode parlays that dread into nailbiting tension followed by an event that will leave a pit in your stomach (or at least mine, even as I write this). On top of it all, there’s a major confession and a violent altercation you’ll be watching between your fingers.”.
I’ve added 1 high quality still of Charlie and the lovely Katey Sagal from tomorrow night’s new episode.
