SOA Tidbits: Exec Producer Barclay on the High Body Count This Season; Maggie Talks Jax & Tara’s Inevitable Wedding

In the latest edition of Ask Ausiello, he had this to say about the amount of causalities this season is going to rack up. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m so not ready for that!

Question: Do I need to prepare myself for a high body count on Sons of Anarchy this season? —Gerald
Ausiello: Yep. And unlike Season 4’s relatively benign list of casualties, Season 5 will whack “people you’re very attached to,” warns exec producer Paris Barclay. “I’m not naming names, but this is the season where the reckoning has to come… You’ll have to say goodbye.”


Maggie Siff spoke with Vulture on Sons of Anarchy, Riding Motorcycles, Tight Jeans, and Cleavage. During which she mentions Jax and Tara’s inevitable wedding. Definitely worth a read, especially if you want more insight into Tara’s darker path this season.

Tara and Jax are raising two kids together, so it’s probably not too much of a spoiler to talk about the inevitable wedding.
“I liked that scene. Getting married by the seat of your pants in a brothel is so unromantic, but I felt that the scene, the way it was written, was actually very sweet and moving and got something about the show that I love. The spirit of family comes through. The circumstances are gnarly, but you always have to have escorts and prostitutes running around on Sons of Anarchy. [Laughs.] Tara doesn’t feel threatened by other women these days, I have to say. She’s more confident in the relationship and should anything transpire with any of the scantily clad ladies, she can handle it. She laid down the law with Jax in season two or three, so he knows that’s not okay. I think Kurt [Sutter] has done an interesting job of making the question of marriage and partnership a real one.”
