The men and women of SAMCRO are in desperate need of a miracle as Jax (Charlie Hunnam) attempts to keep his club from falling apart. In this new trailer for season 6 of Sons of Anarchy, it’s clear that the Sons are going to have to band-together, or risk loosing everything they’ve worked so hard to secure.
[WARNING: SEASON 5 SPOILERS FOLLOW!]
To say that season 5′s finale was operatic would be an understatement. Tara (Maggie Siff) and Clay (Ron Perlman) are both in prison, while Jax’s club is crumbling to pieces as he desperately searches for a sense of morality in all the darkness surrounding him. Maybe Jax and Tara should have gone to Oregon, but his loyalty to the club blinds him from the obvious truth; Jax is turning into Clay.
For many it was a pleasure watching Jax outsmart Pope last season, and the soap opera-esque plots grew deeper with each new episode. Creator/executive producer Kurt Sutter (The Shield) is a mastermind at leaving his viewers wanting more, and there is little doubt that season 6 will do the same.

A closer examination of the trailer reveals some returning guest characters from last season. Nero, played by the talented Jimmy Smits (NYPD Blue) will be back in season 6. At first, it was difficult to ascertain his true intentions at the beginning of season 5, but with his ever-growing bromance with Jax on the rise, Nero’s role will most likely become more crucial to the plot. Another curious character is the former US Marshall Lee Toric (Donal Logue), who seems hellbent on destroying SAMCRO. He’s a dangerous character that lives outside the law, and could possibly lead to SAMCRO’s downfall.
Sons of Anarchy, like Breaking Bad, has superbly-flawed characters that we come to care about over time. SAMCRO has committed horrible crimes over the last five seasons, but are they beyond redemption? As a leader, can Jax find a way to save the club and his family, or will he be forced to make sacrifices? With only two seasons remaining, the epic third act of this series is about to begin.
Sons of Anarchy season 6 premieres Sept. 10 @10pm on FX
