Sons of Anarchy, aka SAMCRO, is a motorcycle club that operates both illegal and legal businesses in the small town of Charming. They combine gun-running and a garage, plus involvement in porn film. Clay, the president, likes it old school and violent; wh
Last year Sons of Anarchy was one of television’s true surprise gems. The FX drama focused on the members of a violent (and very mafia-like) motorcycle gang. With story arc, action, deception and suspense that very closely resembles a Shakespearean play (with a lot more booze and guns) FX proved it can continue to turn out hard-hitting dramas.
Picking up where the premiere season left off, The Sons of Anarchy (SAMCRO) are in turmoil. The ATF is still on their backs. The gun business has dried up. They face threats to their stability unlike anything they have seen before. But, most importantly, the gang is divided. Jax Teller remains at the center of this division. He knows his stepfather and gang leader Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman) is responsible for the death of a SAMCRO member’s wife, but Jax must decide whether to put his club’s, his family’s or his friend’s interests first.
The conflict doesn’t stop with Jax. Division is a central theme of Season Two. Each character struggles with his/her own internal strife. Clay must decide how to best handle a son-in-law he loves but who has begun to question authority. Tara, Jax’s doctor girlfriend, wonders if she is ready to handle the life of loving an outlaw. Deputy Chief Hale is at moral odds about how to best rid Charming of SAMCRO. And Gemma Teller (played by an absolutely brilliant Katey Sagal) faces a horror that threatens to bring down more than just her family.
