Published: September 21, 2012 - 7:48am
Sons of Anarchy follows the lives of a close-knit outlaw motorcycle club operating in Charming, a fictional town in the Central Valley of Northern California. Created by Kurt Sutter, the show's next episode is scheduled to air Tuesday, September 25th, only on FX.
Sons of Anarchy is an adrenalized drama with darkly comedic undertones that explores a notorious outlaw motorcycle club's (MC) desire to protect its livelihood while ensuring that their simple, sheltered town of Charming, California remains exactly that, Charming. The MC must confront threats from drug dealers, corporate developers, and overzealous law officers. Behind the MC's familial lifestyle and legally thriving automotive shop is a ruthless and illegally thriving arms business. The seduction of money, power, and blood.
Jackson 'Jax' Teller (Charlie Hunnam) is SAMCRO's new President who must face the consequences of the MC's illicit deeds before it tears apart the club. Gemma Teller-Morrow (Katey Sagal) is Jax's formidable mother, Clarence 'Clay' Morrow (Ron Perlman) is Jax's stepfather, the last of the Original Nine and former President, and Dr. Tara Knowles (Maggie Siff) is Jax's old lady and mother of his second son.
This season begins with Jax and Tara as the club's new king and queen after learning the truth behind Jax's father's death and facing the consequences of the club's illicit deeds. Stripped of his patch after Jax discovers he was complicit in John Teller's death, Clay recovers from gunshot wounds that nearly killed him while Gemma is faced with a new life without the comfort of her family. With the threat of RICO still looming, Jax has to find a way to protect his family and save his club as SAMCRO is pulled into a conflict with a potent new enemy.
Entertainment Weekly learned from an inside source close to the show's production that the next episode will be a gamechanger, featuring the death of a major character. Creator Kurt Sutter seemingly confirmed the article as being true by promoting it via his Twitter page multiple times.
Because the series features such an ensemble cast, it's hard to say which character will be leaving, but EW did sound off a few names in a potential shortlist:
Wayne Unser (Dayton Callie), Tig Trager (Kim Coates), Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman), Juice Ortiz (Theo Rossi), Opie Winston (Ryan Hurst) and Tara (Maggie Siff).
