Fans of 'Sons of Anarchy' well know that the FX biker drama is famous for its shocking, often brutal violence, and last night's "Laying Pipe" was no exception. Though series creator Kurt Sutter himself warned fans in advance of an impending tragedy, last night viewers said goodby to a fan-favorite character, one who it seems has long been destined for nothing but heartbreak at the hands of SAMCRO. So, why does Sutter say the character had to go?
Got your attention, right? Well, prepare for even more darkly weird news as today FX has announced their intention to keep in business with 'Sons of Anarchy' creator Kurt Sutter by developing an original half-hour comedy 'Diva. Clown. Killer.' An intriguing concept who's title punctuation is sure to frustrate internet bloggers everywhere, the demented series may even feature some of the 'Sons of Anarchy' cast in crucial roles, but whom?
Oh, that Kurt Sutter. Is there anyone he won't pick a fight with? The 'Sons of Anarchy' creator and show-runner has a well-documented history of getting a little overzealous on social media, be it his Twitter or his personal blog, but now it seems a real-life area motorcycle gang isn't amused by his antics. Might 'Sons of Anarchy' go meta by throwing down some real-life fisticuffs?
With 'Sons of Anarchy' season 4 providing FX with some of its highest ratings to date, it's no wonder the network jumped on the possibility of locking series creator Kurt Sutter down for an additional two-season order, and it wouldn't be much of a surprise for a seventh to be in the cards.
That said, season 4 finale 'To Be, Part 2" left 'Sons of Anarchy' fans in quite a huff, finally placing Jax Teller at the head of the SAMCRO table with wife Tara firmly at his side, the group still in turmoil, and the promise of new conflicts on the horizon. So where do the 'Sons of Anarchy' ride next?
