How long will it be before Jax realizes the truth about Gemma’s involvement in Tara’s murder on Sons of Anarchy? — Chris
Don’t expect it to happen any time soon. “Gemma is trying to juggle that lie, deal with the remorse and the guilt of that lie… and I just felt like that tension is really great,” creator Kurt Sutter says of dragging out the reveal. “If and when Jax gets that information about Gemma, there’s not a lot of things that can happen other than his reaction, the heartbreak of that and what does he do in that moment. There’s not a lot of room for anything else after that.” Still, Gemma will get a jolt when she realizes that Unser is investigating Tara’s murder.

“More violence and a lot more blood and some earth-shattering events.”
“We’re coming up to the end of the show. Kurt always had a clear idea of the story he wanted to tell. He had paced himself and allowed himself seven seasons to tell that story,” Hunnam told us. “We’re in the sixth season now and in the third act of this epic story he’s been telling; traditionally in the third act of a story, particularly a violent story, is when people start to die and when things really start to happen.”
And yes, fans can expect to see at least a few major deaths go down by season’s end, with Hunnam teasing, “I think unfortunately we’re going to lose a couple of cast members this year, but obviously we can’t say who!” Coates playfully added, “Lips are sealed, lips are sealed!”
Things aren’t looking good for Smits’ character Nero on the show as he’s currently in jail and we’re not feeling any better about his situation after hearing the actor’s preview for the rest of the season: “It’s just going to keep on getting grittier and Kurt’s world, it’s about family and clutching to what family’s about on so many levels,” he explained, “but it’s also about comeuppance in a lot of ways and a lot of peeps are getting their comeuppance. It’s extreme.”
Question: What’s up with Sons of Anarchy? —Robert
Ausiello: Jax won’t be making any conjugal visits to his jailhouse bride when Sons of Anarchy kicks off its sixth season on Sept. 10. In fact, he won’t be visiting Tara, period (although it won’t be for lack of trying on his part). When the unhappy couple do eventually come face-to-face, expect “a deep sense of sadness on both their parts,” shares series creator Kurt Sutter, who describes the reunion as “loving but very sad.” As the SOA boss notes, “They’ve been through so much already, and how many more times can you say, ‘I’m sorry?’ How many more times can you say, ‘It’s going to get better?’ How many more times can you say, ‘It’ll change?’ It’s almost like there’s a certain amount of resignation that they both are aware of.”

Zap2it: In his rise to power within the club, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) has become a great example of how corrupting absolute power can be in a person. Going into Season 6, where is his story heading?
Kurt Sutter: I think it’s somewhat on that trajectory. There’s a scene in episode 2 with Tara, where Jax talks about how the death of Opie is what’s driving him and ultimately it’s hard for him to step away now, because if he does, he sees that Opie’s death was in vain.
Opie set himself up, knowing where it was all going to a certain extent. And him sacrificing himself for the club, for Jax to walk away would be dishonoring his memory. That’s what I’m talking about when I say the ghost of Opie is living in Jax, in at least the first half of the season, and is sort of motivating him to … not necessarily go rogue, but perhaps pushing him down this path where he may be leaping before he looks.
