Sons of Anarchy at Comic-Con: Feel the Incitement!

at .

Before the bloodshed that is sure to befall various characters on the final season of Sons of Anarchy, there were tears today at Comic-Con.

From creator Kurt Sutter, of all people.

“Sit the f–k down. I’ve got an image!” Sutter joked today upon receiving a standing ovation at his show's panel discussion in San Diego.

Eventually, however, the executive producer got choked up when talking about the journey he and his cast have gone on.

“We’re just one big fu-ked up family, and this is such a bittersweet experience," Sutter told attendees. "The thing I’m most grateful for is I walk through our set and I know that everyone wants to be there, and everyone’s really grateful, and everyone really likes the show that there working on. And that’s the gift for me. So thank you.”

A trailer that aired at Comic-Con featured Jax carving Swastika into a victim’s stomach in jail… Nero throwing back drinks with the Mayans… Chibs leading SAMCRO on a ride… and Gemma acting as a mother to her grandkids.

As for what fans can expect from Sons of Anarchy Season 7?

Sutter said that Season 7 will be “the most proactive [Jax] has been throughout the entire series... This season he comes out with blinders on, singular in purpose. Rather than being the reactor to chaos, he is the inciter of chaos.”

Gemma, meanwhile, is “always about what’s the best thing for the kids – that’s kind of her thought and her motive, and she’s continuing to try to do that," previewed Katey Sagal. "As you’ll see, what transpires from that somewhat pure motivation just kind of goes awry.”

Sutter also touched on a pair of related SOA projects:

  1. A prequel, about which he's had "serious conversations" with FX.
  2. A series of books “that will live in our mythology but not impact things that happened [in the show].” The first will be titled “Bratva," be released in November and set after the events of season four. It will Jax, Opie, and Chibs in another Russian-centric storyline.

Sons of Anarchy Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.


Jax: You want to be an old lady, then act like one! Do you what you're told! Pack your shit and head back to Charming.
Tara: I just helped you mother kill someone. That old lady enough for you?!?
