SONS OF ANARCHY
PREVIOUSLY ON… | Jax was finally successful in his efforts to dethrone Clay. What’s more, he was able – with a little help from Gemma and Juice – to frame the ousted president for the murder of Big Bad Damon Pope, resulting in an incarceration. Tara, too, was arrested, for her involvement in the death of a prison nurse, while Bobby vacated his seat as SAMCRO VP.
COMING UP NEXT | A controversial twist in the Season 6 premiere “is truly the catalyst for the final act of our morality play," Sons creator Kurt Sutter shares, adding that the development "sets everything in motion” and eventually leads to “the final season and what I see as the ultimate comeuppance of everything, in terms of the series.” In the interim, might time behind bars be exactly what Clay needed? The ex-prez starts the season believing he’s on a “redemptive path… There’s a certain amount of resignation and understanding of who he is and the things that he’s done; he’ll try to go out with a little bit of dignity,” Sutter says. Donal Logue’s vengeance-seeking ex-Marshal Lee Toric, however, has different plans for Clay – most of which involve his flipping on the club. And sorry Jax/Tara fans: The semi-estranged couple’s impending reunion is described by the showrunner as “loving, but very sad."
TVLINE BONUS SPOILER | Juice’s internal grieving process over his many "betrayals” of SAMCRO will “continue to play out in fits and spurts throughout the season,” Sutter teases. Expect to see the misguided biker on both the receiving and giving ends of some serious pain early on.
