In this week’s cover story, EW goes on the set of Sons of Anarchy, FX’s addictive drama that’s gone from a leather-clad family drama about an outlaw motorcycle club to a dark exploration of human brutality. The deaths are coming so fast and so furious this season the drama’s nearly 5 million fans have worked themselves into a frenzy trying to figure out which major character will meet their maker. Will Tig finally pay for killing Pope’s daughter? Is Clay going to get his just reward? Will Jax go down over the sins of his stepfather?
“The irony of the crown is you can’t necessarily sit at the head of that table and not become Clay,” series creator Kurt Sutter tells EW. “Although in Jax’s mind, he is the anti‑Clay. He’s doing everything for completely different reasons. But the truth is, the behavior is still the same…when you’re outlaws who live by a code of violence, can you really step away from the violence?”
Sutter goes on to tease who may — or may not — bite the dust before the drama’s series finale in 2014.
