“Sons of Anarchy” season 6 is not going to be actually airing on FX until September, and the writers are still two months away from actually beginning the scripts. With that being said, executive producer Kurt Sutter is still being kind enough to share a few details about what is coming up for a few specific characters.
Speaking as a part of a new interview with TV Guide, Sutter explains that when it specifically comes to the woman played by his wife Katey Sagal in Gemma, he anticipates a return to form for her after a season stuffed full of heartbreak, a new “relationship” with Nero, and her running back to Clay despite trying to be pushed into ruining him by Jax:
“Women like Gemma, they are cockroaches … They can take a lot of hits, and they always find a way to come back and crawl out a little bit stronger. We saw her really astray at the beginning of the season, but … we slowly saw her find footing. I think by the end of the finale, she’s got her balls back.”
This Gemma comeback should come as a nice sort of parallel to what is going on with Clay, especially when you consider that he is seemingly a broken man now following his arrest. After trying for so long to fight and be the “tough guy,” he’s somehow become a bit of a sympathetic character while Jax has managed to fill his role. It’s not clear whether or not the dynamic will stay this way throughout season 6, but it should at least be exciting from the onset.
