Sons of Anarchy returned September 6th on FX for a 90-minute season premiere and it appears that both the cast and creator Kurt Sutter are revealing that the show's motorcycle club will begin to break up this season. Minor Spoilers Ahead.
FX's original series, 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.
Kim Coates, who plays SAMCRO member Tig put it very bluntly proclaiming that "the club's breaking up. We're all at odds with each other. It's a very dark time in Sons of Anarchy," he said. Mark Boone, who plays club secretary Bobby also revealed a clash with leader Clay (Ron Perlman). "We really go at it," said Boone, "Bobby is not happy with a lot of the way that Clay has been taking the club this year."
"There are so many rules being shattered, and so many alliances that are being violated so quickly. I don't know if it's for the greater good or purely self-interest, " said Perlman.
Show creator Kurt Sutter also revealed that all of the drama that has been building over the course of the series will come to a head during the fourth season. "There's a lot more on the line," said Katey Sagal, who plays Clay's wife Gemma. "It's just ratcheted up. We take some very big steps forward in terms of moving mythology along this season."
Season four begins with SAMCRO fresh out of jail and back into Charming. Upon their arrival, they encounter new law enforcement and head right back to business. The club is pressed with a decision that could challenge what SOA has always stood for and brings forth an unlikely alliance. With Jax fresh out of a jail and the birth of his newborn son, he is forced to put new plans into motion that could affect the club and ultimately his family.
