Rape Repercussions to Be Felt on Sons of Anarchy

at . Comments

Sons of Anarchy opened season two with a scene as gruesome and disturbing as any in TV history:

Katey Sagal's Gemma was gang raped by white supremacists.

Without giving away any major Sons of Anarchy spoilers, the actress told Entertainment Weekly that the repercussions from this event will continue to be felt. By everyone.

“Everybody is asked to pick what side they are on and everyone is reacting to what happened to me and trying to get vengeance. There is a lot of stuff about protecting the club and protecting individuals. And they assume they know who is responsible for this horrible thing that happened, but they may not be correct. Things get worse before they get better.”

Sons of Anarchy Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.


We don't know who we are until we're connected to someone else. We're just better human beings when with the person we're supposed to be with. I wasn't supposed to leave...I belong here.
