Leanne’s Spoiler List: Coming Deaths Will Be For The Greater Good, Says Exec Producer Barclay

Don’t miss what Leanne’s Spoiler List had to say about the upcoming deaths this season on Sons of Anarchy!

Sons of Anarchy: Death is coming for the fellas of FX — and it certainly won’t be pretty. Producer Paris Barclay says that there will be “quite a few empty seats at the table” by season’s end. Yikes! And unfortunately, star-slash-baddie Ron Perlman fears he might be one of them. “I’ve worried [about being killed off] pretty much for the last three seasons,” Perlman says. “My deeds get more and more dastardly, and more and more heinous. I’m fodder, baby. A lot of people want to take me out, and not for coffee.” [Insert your version of “oh snap!” here.]

Losing Clay would be a major bummer, but Barclay says this season’s deaths will all be for the greater good. “We’re starting to develop the story of Jax (Charlie Hunnam) really taking control of the club,” he says. “There are going to have to be certain transitions to make that happen, and that’s what you’re going to see in Season 5.” Looking forward to it!


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.”

TVGuide: An Impromptu Wedding, Revenge and a Life-Altering Statement of Allegiance.

That “impromptu wedding” wedding could prove my Jax/Tara episode two theory right, but who can really know for sure with Sons? Am I right? I have to say though I’m both excited and intrigued by the Opie tidbit. What do you guys think?

I’m so excited for Sons of Anarchy to come back. Please give me some spoilers! — Chris
ADAM: Gangster Damon Pope (guest star Harold Perrineau) will quickly exact revenge on Tig, who killed Pope’s daughter, in a scene that will be burned in your memory. Is there any good news? Yes! An early episode features an impromptu wedding and Opie will re-dedicate his loyalty to Jax with a life-altering statement of allegiance.


Ask Ausiello: Sons of Anarchy S5 Premiere…Holy Crap. + Episode 2 Jax and Tara ‘Bliss’?

Who’s ready for September 11th?!

Question: I saw on Facebook that you watched the first two episodes of Sons of Anarchy‘s new season. And… ? —Kevin
Ausiello: And… holy crap. Something ghastly happens in the Sept. 11 opener that raises the stakes in the war between Damon Pope (a frightening Harold Perrineau) and SAMCRO tenfold. On the bright side, the incident in question could land an underrated member of the show’s ensemble if not an Emmy nomination in 2013 than certainly a place in the kudos conversation.

Question: Any Sons of Anarchy scoop on Jax and Tara? —Megan
Ausiello: As much as parts of the premiere made me turn away in utter despair, there’s a sequence in Episode 2 featuring Jax and Tara that had me looking on in pure bliss. I laughed, I cried, I scratched my head in disbelief that Charlie Hunnam and Maggie Siff have never been nominated for an Emmy for these roles.

Check out what Entertainment Weekly had to say in their Spoiler Room this week when asked about Sons of Anarchy’s upcoming fifth season!

You have a choice in scoopage: either NCIS: LA, Sons of Anarchy, or Maggie on The Newsroom. – Amy
I’ll take Sons because I just saw the season opener. By the way: HOLY S–T! Damon Pope’s revenge against SAMCRO kicks off in a big way — and there will be an event that will change one member’s life forever. Meanwhile, Jax and Tara fans will enjoy the second episode. I won’t say why.
