With the season five premiere of FX’s Sons Of Anarchy only two months away, we now have our first tease for the highly anticipated biker drama. Currently filming in L.A., this first promo gives us a rather symbolic look at what lays ahead for our favorite gang of antiheroes.
The clip, courtesy of Yahoo, features the song Trouble Weighs a Ton by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys and depicts a dream-like sequence featuring some of the Sons led by their new president, Jax (Charlie Hunnam). They’re seen driving over a bridge only to be met by Tara (Maggie Siff) and Gemma (Katey Sagal).
As Gemma runs out to try and stop Jax from crossing the bridge, he swerves and crashes through the railing and plummets over the side. For fans of the series, this is an ominous indicator of what’s in store.
While speaking to TV Guide, Katey Sagal spoke about her character Gemma and her relationship with the new SAMCRO queen.
“Gemma loves Tara but might just be a little threatened by her now that she’s suddenly been displaced as queen of the club. Gemma, who’ll be getting her drink on, doesn’t like to take s— from anybody!”
Siff also spoke about what’s ahead for her character this season, who at the end of last year was in a rather fragile mental state:
“She 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.”
Sons Of Anarchy season five will premiere September 4th on FX.
