What’s happening next for the SAMCRO crew? New leadership, struggles, and roles for many of the members is the prediction. Power shifts make for some great episodes, so I doubt we will be disappointed. There is some major talk of how Jax and Tara will fit into their new positions in the club. Sons of Anarchy creator, Kurt Sutter, spoke about Tara’s role and the upcoming season in a recent interview, saying “The power structure has changed with Clay being out. The bigger issue really is Tara’s new role and her trying to fit in. The guys like Tara, they have respect for Tara, so it’s not like they’re going to feel they’re being disloyal to Gemma by trying to understand Tara’s new role.” The issue this season doesn’t seems to be a lack of support from the guys for Tara. Instead, it’s Tara figuring out how to deal with her own fears. “It’s not so much am I in or am I out this season [with Tara]. It’s ‘OK, I’m in, but who am I in this role?”, Sutter continued. “We will see the burden of the responsibility land on Tara this season, in terms of Jax’s role and we will see her embrace that responsibility and struggle with how to be that queen for Jax and yet still have all the same fears and doubts and misgivings that she had in the past,” says Sutter. “That stuff doesn’t just go away. It’s just that she’s trying to figure out what to do with that energy.”
Sons of Anarchy Season 5 will also include a number of guest spots and reoccurring roles. You can look forward to seeing Ashley Tisdale, Jimmy Smits, Harold Perrineau, and Billy Brown, just to name a few.
For Opie to get all of that information from Jax, it didn’t make sense that he would be able to rectify that within a couple hours and sit at that table. A second marriage that is failing, a father that is dead, and a club in shambles. What is a guy to do? Well, season 5 will find Opie still trying to wrap his head around what’s going on in his life and whether or not there’s repair to be had. With Opie and Jax and see how that relationship has changed and if you can come back from that.
What new people do you think will drop in on the SAMCRO clan this year? A number of actors who once appeared on The Shield, which Sutter executive-produced, have made their way onto Sons, We have already learned that former ‘NYPD Blue’ star Jimmy Smits and ‘LOST‘s Harold Perrineau would play large, looming roles over the Kurt Sutter series’ fifth outing, but now the ranks have expanded to include…a Disney sweetheart? Also news has surfaced that former ‘High School Musical’ and upcoming ‘Scary Movie 5‘ star Ashley Tisdale has just landed a recurring role in ‘Sons of Anarchy’s fifth season, playing “Emma Jean, a high-priced desirable escort who complicates the club’s life in at least two episodes.” Though only set for two, the role could potentially expand in the future.
Tisdale isn’t the only one recently added to the cast however, as earlier ‘Dexter‘ star Billy Brown will also take a role on the series as August Marks, right-hand man to Harold Perrineau’s major villain character Damon Pope.
Scoops aside, Sutter also shined light on his efforts to produce a prequel to Sons that would explore the story of the first nine members. He’s expressed his desires to produce the show to FX, he said, but it remains on the sidelines for now.
