And cut to a woman trading her body. Gemma was back at her house with Clay, sitting on their bed. Clay admitted he was surprised he was there after all he’d done. The only good that came out of the chaos he created, he said, was that it showed him the only thing he cares about is her. He told her he didn’t want to be there unless it’s really what she wants — because he can’t handle losing her twice. I believed him, but it doesn’t mean I think she should take him back. But Gemma had to go through with the plan. She kissed him. That was a fairly brilliant way to make that happen — Clay was kind enough that it wasn’t totally repulsive; Gemma knew she was hurting him in the long run. | SONS OF ANARCHY 5.10 - “Crucifixed” Recap [x]
“It’s hard not to hate. People, things, institutions. When they break your spirit and take pleasure in watching you bleed hate is the only feel that makes sense. But I know what hate does to a man. Tears him apart, tears him in something he’s not. Something he promised himself he’d never become. That’s what I need to tell you, to let you know how hard I’m tryin’ not to cave under the weight of all the awful things I feel in my heart. Sometimes my life feels like a deadly balancing act, what I feel slamming up agains what I should do. Impulsive reactions racing to solutions miles ahead of my brain. When I look at my day I realised most of it was spend cleaning up the damage of the day before. In that life I have no future. All I have is distractions and remorse.
I buried my best friend three days ago. As cliche as it sounds, I left part of me in that box. Part I barely knew, part I’ll never see again. Everyday is a new box, boys. You open it, you take a look on what’s inside. You determines if it’s a gift or a coffin.”

Ridin’ through this world all alone
God takes your soul you’re on your own
The crow flies straight a perfect line
On the devil’s path until you die
Gotta look this world in the eye
Gotta live this life till you die
Road to S5: I’m trying to survive here.

This is the face of a true and well written ‘villain’. I just can’t imagine watching SoA without Clay. Chapeau to Sutter!

Bless this cast.
Bless this show.
We began shooting episode 501. It feels all new and all familiar. I sat at that table during the first read-through and looked at the faces. It’s fascinating watching the cast members grow over the years. I notice the shift in energies, personalities, and relationships. Some folks have embraced the flow of the show and have taken the success in stride; some, not so much.
Charlie Hunnam, not unlike his character, has matured into a strong, gracious leader. Early on, I think Charlie struggled with the concept of being number one on the call sheet. The attention and that identity made him uncomfortable. Now, he owns it. He is the president. He sets the tone for the rest of the cast. He shows up early, comes prepared, and gives more than he receives. In Charlie’s own words, he’s come halfway to meet Jax. Meaning, he’s dug deep to tap into his primal, outlaw nature and keeps that accessible. As “actory” as that may sound, I know the work that entails and the struggle it presents. “Being raw” is not something that is easily turned on and off. It’s that struggle that separates performers from actors.
