"What went down today was us burying the last piece of a very broken past." — Jax Teller
Sons of Anarchy has long been known for late-season switcheroos that get the outlaw motorcycle club out of a tight jam. But Tuesday's episode took that strategy to another level.
Instead of waiting for the finale to reveal this season's master stroke, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) made sure that his plan to get SAMCRO out of the gun-running business sticks for good. After shoring up the details of his plan to deliver Gaalan (Timothy V. Murphy) and a bunch of the Irish Kings' assault weapons to D.A. Patterson (CCH Pounder), Jax & Co. prepared to help Connor (Scott Anderson) bust Clay (Ron Perlman) out of his prison transport as Gaalan requested...

"You can't sit in this chair without being a savage."
After a season-long examination of what kind of leader Jax Teller would become as president of the outlaw motorcycle club at the center of FX's Sons of Anarchy, Jax offers up the words above as his ultimate conclusion. And there's plenty of evidence to support his case.
Sons of Anarchy: What kind of leader will Jax become?
After successfully getting the club out of transporting drugs for the cartel and dealing major weapons for the Irish, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) still had one item on his agenda: killing his predecessor Clay (Ron Perlman). But because Jax's vice president Bobby (Mark Boone Jr.) cast the only vote against killing Clay as a club action, Jax had to get creative...

On Tuesday's episode, the former star of The Shield reunited with Sons creator Kurt Sutter for a jaw-dropping cameo. Jax (Charlie Hunnam) asks Mayor Hale (Jeff Kober) to lease one of his properties to the Sons so that they could get their "companion" business with Nero (Jimmy Smits) off the ground. When Hale refuses, Jax promises to help the mayor push through the Charming Heights development project. Jax's plan: to blackmail a council member who opposes the mayor's plans.

Tuesday's episode of Sons of Anarchy was, in a word, brutal.

Not only did the episode feature a graphically violent death-by-beating, but it also killed off one of the show's most beloved characters. The newly incarcerated Jax (Charlie Hunnam) was told by Damon Pope (Harold Perrineau) that in order to end the beef between their respective gangs, Jax would have to give Pope half of the money SAMCRO earns muling cocaine for the cartel. The second demand was much trickier: Pope also told Jax to choose which one of the brothers he had walked into prison with — Tig (Kim Coates), Chibs (Tommy Flanagan), and Opie (Ryan Hurst) — would not be walking out.
While mulling over the decision, Jax...
Never judge a book by its cover.
Sons of Anarchy's Season 5 premiere proved that old adage once again with the introduction of gangster Damon Pope (Lost's Harold Perrineau). Unlike his crew, the One-Niners, Pope is a well-dressed businessman who could seemingly never be mistaken as an outlaw or a thug.

"I always envisioned this guy as being [the] kind of guy who has sort of risen above the street and has learned to carry himself in the community," creator Kurt Sutter tells TVGuide.com...
Now that Jax has taken over as president of SAMCRO, the Sons of Anarchy antihero has finally fulfilled his destiny by following in his father's — and stepfather's — footsteps. Will Jax (Charlie Hunnam) go the route of John Teller, who died in servitude of the club, or Clay (Ron Perlman), who lost his way and ultimately became the enemy of the club? Either path Jax takes, one thing is for certain: "There is no show without Jax."
That's what creator Kurt Sutter expressed to reporters at FX's Television Critics Association fall TV previews Saturday. Going into the fifth season, Sutter said he's already planning for the end.
There's a new face at the head of the table this season on Sons of Anarchy.
After Clay (Ron Perlman) killed Piney (William Lucking), put a hit out on Tara (Maggie Siff) and beat his wife Gemma (Katey Sagal) to a bloody pulp in an effort to protect his secrets, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) ousted his stepfather from the president's seat. But it's going to be far from a cushy job.

It was a night full of F-bombs as the creator and cast of FX's motorcycle club drama Sons of Anarchy roared into Wednesday's PaleyFest event, moderated by Variety's Stuart Levine.
