Sons of Anarchy: Where Does It Go From Here?

at . Comments

Yes, that really happened on Sons of Anarchy last night.

The FX drama returned for a second season with the most disturbing scene in show history (and that's saying a lot): Gemma was gang raped by a white separatist group.

Where can the series possibly go from here? E! News spoke to creator Kurt Sutter, as well as a number of Sons of Anarchy stars, about the direction of season two...

Will Gemma get revenge? "Perhaps... on many levels," Sutter mysteriously said, adding: "I always felt like there's a fascination with [the biker] world, people really love the freedom of it, the sexiness of it, the power of it, but that ultimately the violence doesn't happen in a vacuum and karmically, that s--t comes around. And that's why I chose to do what I did in the premiere.

However, I will say that it is the emotional catalyst for the season, and that it will all make sense, and that the scales will be balanced.... And let me put it this way, it would take an event such as that to put Gemma on any kind of spiritual quest."

Run, Jax!

When will the rapists get killed? Said guest star Henry Rollins:"Something awful has to happen to someone as awful as me, but I'm on that need-to-know basis, so I have no idea. Every time, I look at an episode and I'm still in it, and I'm still breathing at the end, I'm like, yeah!"

What about Clay and Jax? Let's ask the men that portray them: "The entire second season is a kind of 'come to Jesus' for Clay and the way he goes about taking care of business. There's a palpable tension between Clay and Jax," said Ron Perlman.

And Charlie Hunnam: "I start slowly and subtly with Clay because I think that there's going to be a smarter way to do it, and that I'm going to manipulate him and outwit him and expose him for what he is, but it turns out he's been doing this a long time, and he's got a few tricks of his own, so that manipulation doesn't fully work and that results in great frustration for me, so the more futile my efforts become, the more brazen they become.”

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.
