"Sons of Anarchy" on FX comes back this September 6.
The new season is one steeped in old hurts, new problems, reacquainting lovers, loyalties tested and finding one's feet again in a town ripe for gentrification, and an energized new law force ready to defeat the hold SAMCRO has on it.
Will this happen? We hope not.
Bonus for fans is that Otto (Kurt Sutter) has meaty scenes in the premiere, and he can hold his own with the best actor out there. Gemma (Katey Sagal) has never looked better, despite the fact she has two grandsons now. Tara (Maggie Siff) loves her Jax, but those Irish tattletales penned to Jackson from Maureen - what will the fallout be from that?
I love that Kurt Sutter does not discard actors so easily. Chief Unser (Dayton Callie) who could have been relegated to "dead and gone" because of his cancer is still with us, and his loyalty to the club (and especially Gemma) is rewarded.
That is one of my favorite themes of this show, having the back of someone who returns in kind.
Piney too. William Lucking has taken what could have been a small role and created a paternalistic and naughty Lee Marvin-like character who is deeply loved by the fans.
Chucky's (Michael Marisi Ornstein) effervescent spirit continues, and he is another one who has taken a crumb of a role and turned it into a delicious biscuit to savor.
Bobby (Mark Boone Jr,), Juice (Theo Rossi), Jax (Charlie Hunnam), Clay (Ron Perlman),Tig (Kim Coates), Kozik (Kenny Johnson), Happy (David Labrava) Opie (Ryan Hurst) and Chibs (Tommy Flanagan) all together have that seamless quick-witted guy banter down stone cold, and the well-written lines roll beautifully, and like Barry Levinson's bromance film "Diner," they are fast and scathingly funny.
So much to look forward to.
