Ron Perlman on Clay's Killing: It Had To Be Done

by at . Comments

Clay Morrow is front and center on Sons of Anarchy this season, more than ever before, as the SAMCRO President fights for his position and for a comfortable, wealthy retirement.

But forget the future. Clay's past came back to haunt him this week, as the character took his most drastic action yet on "Family Recipe," taking out a member of the Original 9. What drove him to kill Piney? The victim's own words, Ron Perlman says.

Clay and Chibbs

"If some guy tells me I'm taking you out, how does he expect me to let him live? He's got to know that there's going to be some pushback," the actor explained to TV Guide. "Clay can't afford to have him around. He's backed into a corner, and he's at his most dangerous. You back a big cat into a corner, somebody is going to get bloody."

How far will Clay go to keep his role in JT's death a secret?

Perlman says there's almost no limit to the "amount of things that he's willing to sacrifice" to maintain his standing with Jax and the club. But what happens if or when Gemma sees what Clay has done? It looks like we'll soon find out.

Visit TV Guide now to read the full interview with Perlman.

The song was an old Neil young song about the "death" of an original punk rocker, Johnny Rotten. His true self was named John Lydon.


Bwellman, "Hey Hey, My My" is a song by Neil Young. There are two versions of this song by him. The original "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)", and the acoustic "My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)". The song you heard is an acoustic cover of "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)" by Battleme, which can be found on the EP from Season 3 called "The King is Gone". Also, if you liked this song, you should check out "Burn This Town", also from Battleme, from the Season 2 EP "Shelter". Both are available on itunes.
