Kurt Sutter, creator and director of Sons Of Anarchy, has truly made a masterpiece. It centres around the motorcycle club ‘Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original’ or SAMCRO for short. Although it’s a fictional series, Sutter took inspiration from Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’, through his portrayal of the emerging violence between the chief and the successors.
The series is set in a small town in northern California called ‘Charming’ where Jackson ‘Jax’ Teller and his stepfather are in charge of a violent club. As they run a number of illegal businesses, the brotherhood uses a car repair garage as a cover-up. Not only are cars repaired here, it’s where they also mastermind their criminal wheeling and dealings. The bikers live off extortion and through escorting HGVs with special cargo and illegal weapon trade, everything that is expected of a gangster! And for all SoA fans out there, you’ll find all the appropriate Sons of Anarchy fan merch.
SOA – What happens in the series?
The Sons of Anarchy always do their own thing, which becomes clear from the first season. They are at odds with their rivals the Mayans, a Latino bike gang. The illegal weapons authorities (ATF) are hot on their heels and the police involved are caught up on the front line. When the weapon trade becomes a little tricky, the club tries a new tack: SAMCRO take over a motorcycle club in Nevada, commit a murder and are subject to further investigation by the ATF for their association with crime. And if that wasn’t enough, Jax and Clay are at loggerheads.
As Jax doesn’t agree with how Clay is running his club, the conflict between President and his vice escalates and leads to the breakdown of the club. Now there is a new threat: The League. The Neo-Nazi party brings the club back to life, and together they want to fight against the nationalists. So how does this end? Well, some of the club’s members end up in prison at the same time as the ATF being hot on their heels again. With the involvement of new gangs, the illegal weapon trade ends up with the brotherhood erupting in violence. They know the outcome only too well, and it’s not good.
Through working with the ‘Real Irish Republican Army’, the club ends up detouring to Belfast. This isn’t for pleasure, but to set Abel Teller free, Jax’s son. The unscrupulous IRA have his son in their power and battles ensue. This wouldn’t be the end of the troubles or the Sons of Anarchy though, as they have many more ordeals to come which shake SAMCRO to its core.
Kurt Sutter has given us more - YES! We really can’t get enough of Sons of Anarchy and we imagine you can’t either. With ‘Mayans MC’ the creator of the motorcycle club brings us even more action on two wheels.
This is all about the young EZ Reyes who is trying to strike a balance between gang life and staying on the right side of the law. His father Felipe puts everything on the line to make sure that his son doesn’t go off the rails. However, EZ cannot drag himself away from the club or crime.
We can also look forward to Mayans gangster Marcus Alvarez (Emilio Rivera). Whether other characters emerge from Sons of Anarchy again, we’ll have to just wait and see. But until then, stay loyal to your club and your family!
