SOA: Poor Little Lambs

Sons of Anarchy is getting intense, as Kurt Sutter has promised us. Entertainment Weekly sat down with him, as well as Charlie Hunnam, Jimmy Smits, Katey Sagal, Mark Boone Junior, Paris Barclay and Tommy Flanagan to talk about what has happened so far.

Last night was only the beginning of the end. I can’t wait to see what this season has to offer; it can only get more insane from here. I am curious to see what is going to happen when Jax and Nero inevitably find out about Gemma’s lie. That is going to turn everything upside down, because her lie has sparked this entire war with the Chinese. Because of her, all of this terrible stuff is happening not only to the club, but her family, and the community of Charming.

The entire series has been about Jax trying to move the club out of running guns and into legitimate business, but every season the club just gets into more and more trouble. It’s really such a sad story, and I’m upset that it is coming to an end. But I just need to try to enjoy the final ride.

The Voice – Blinds 3 & 4

It’s heating up! After nights 3 and 4, we’re getting closer to my favorite part; the battle rounds!

Night 3 of the blind auditions had a lot of talent, as usual. My favorite was Blessing Offor. I was having a panic attack waiting for someone to turn their chair for him, and was so overwhelmed with happiness when at the last second, all 4 turned around. Hopefully he makes it far on Team Pharrell. I was also happy to see Anita Antoinette return from season 3. She did so well this time around, and I am very happy that she chose Team Gwen over Team Adam; I think that her and Gwen will make a good match.

I wasn’t a big fan of Bree Fondacaro; her voice had good parts but it was just too airy. Maybe Blake will help her control her voice better and turn her into a top artist.

Night 4 was good as well. I really enjoyed Katriz Trinidad‘s audition, especially since she has a killer voice at the young age of 15. When I was 15, I was super awkward, so I always love seeing these kids with incredible voices at young ages. Speaking of young contestants, I was so happy that someone turned around for Tanner Linford. I wasn’t especially moved by his performance, but I would have been so heartbroken for him if he didn’t get a chair to turn two years in a row. I was impressed with Jonathan Wyndham as well, mostly because I am a huge fan of the song Say Something (as well as A Great Big World) but he sang it beautifully.

There can’t be many more nights of auditions left, most of the teams are almost full. I can’t wait for the battle rounds; they always bring fierce competition and you really get to see the contestants for who they are as performers.
