Kurt Sutter reveals how many 'Sons of Anarchy' club members will die

In the Sept. 9 premiere of Sons of Anarchy‘s final season, a vengeful Jax (Charlie Hunnam) tells his brothers, “For me to move forward with all the things we now have to do, I need to know this table has no doubts, no mistrust, that every single one of you would kill or die for the man next to him.” With FX’s marketing campaign centered on Jax morphing into the Reaper, fans anticipate a high body count on the first front by season seven’s end (and they would be right).

But creator Kurt Sutter’s tally on the latter might be surprising: “Two club members will be dead,” he tells EW. “I don’t think there’ll be more than that.”

Before Comic-Con last month, EW asked readers to predict the fate of 15 characters. (Remember, there’s a large number of non-members fans are invested in: Gemma, Unser, Wendy, Nero, Lyla, Chucky, and even Marcus Alvarez and Henry Lin, who’ve been recurring since season one.) If Juice (Theo Rossi) is still considered a member, he topped fans’ hit list with 86 percent guessing he’ll meet Mr. Mayhem at some point. Rat (Niko Nicotera) and Tig (Kim Coates) were the next best bets, with about 64 percent and 63 percent believing they’d eventually be buried in their cuts, respectively. The club members viewed as safest—which could prove more unsettling—were Bobby (Mark Boone Junior) and Chibs (Tommy Flanagan).

With the new intel from Sutter, who starts writing episode nine of the final 13 today, it’s time for a recount.  READ FULL STORY

'Sons of Anarchy' creator says series ending not yet decided

SoA-Final-Season

Sons of Anarchy is headed into its final season. Yet creator Kurt Sutter says the end of the road for FX’s biker hit has not yet been entirely mapped.

“Considering I’m a week-and-a-half behind writing episode 7, it could all change,” Sutter told reporters when asked about the series ending at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills on Monday. “I’ve always had a sense of where I wanted it to go, and I come in each season with a blueprint with the big arcs and mile markers. And I’ve learned over seven seasons the looser I grip that idea the better the seasons are. And this season isn’t any different. I came in with how I wanted the season to end … but things change. It’s always been heading in the same direction, but the way I’m getting there continues to change.”

Also, Sutter warns not to expect the final season to feel markedly different: “I didn’t want it to feel like ‘the final season,’ or to have it feel different,” Sutter said. “I really want it to feel like another season from Sons, only that when we’re done there’s probably not a whole lot more story to tell.”

And will there be closure? “We don’t fade to black in a diner,” Sutter assured, referencing the infamous ending of HBO’s The Sopranos.

Walton Goggins' Venus Van Dam will return to 'Sons of Anarchy'

Sons of Anarchy fans are nervous heading into the show’s final season, but here’s something good to look forward to: Walton Goggins will return as transgender escort Venus Van Dam. Creator Kurt Sutter confirmed it on Twitter (in NSFW language that properly conveys his own excitement).

Goggins, who could earn a guest performer Emmy nomination June 10 for the character’s emotional return in season six, had been vocal about wanting to play the role again. “I wouldn’t be surprised if you see her again before this show is done. I’ll just say that,” he told EW last October. “She’s like a drug for me. And I think she’s like a drug for Kurt. Kurt and his writing staff did such a good job of creating this woman who is as strong as they come and now simultaneously as vulnerable as they come. I just… I miss her. I missed her the day that we wrapped, and I miss her now. I hope to be six inches taller than some of the members of the gang on Sons of Anarchy again, but we’ll see.” READ FULL STORY

Emmy Watch: Maggie Siff talks Tara's park confrontation on 'Sons of Anarchy'

We said it in our recap of Sons of Anarchy‘s season 6 finale, and now we’ll say it again: Every year, EW advocates for Maggie Siff to get an Emmy nomination. We hope this past season’s scene in the park — when Tara is convinced Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is going to kill her, but instead, he decides to set her and their boys free — will finally cinch her one. Here, Siff — a new mom who imagines she’ll “start sniffing around again in the fall” for her next role — talks about that scene, which was named one of the TV season’s 50 Best in the issue of Entertainment Weekly on stands now.
