Sons of Anarchy Sons of Anarchy

When FX's Sons of Anarchy returns for Season 5 in September, expect friction like never before between Gemma (Katey Sagal) and her son's fiancée, Tara (Maggie Siff), over issues like child rearing. Creator Kurt Sutter hints that things could eventually turn physical between the dueling dames, who'll turn to substances to calm down.

"Gemma loves Tara but might just be a little threatened by her now that she's suddenly been displaced as queen of the club," teases Sagal. "Gemma — who'll be getting her drink on — doesn't like to take s--- from anybody!" Look for Gemma to rough up some unlucky sap early in the season. As for Tara, Siff says her character "will be getting a little more messed- up in the head and volatile. You will also see her smoking pot to take the edge off." Perhaps it's time to rename this series The Real Housewives of Charming, California.
