Sons Of Anarchy ‘Mayhem’ Promo Tease VIDEO
This season … Trouble is Charming. Your favorite Sons are back tonight at 10p only on FX.
“What separates Hamlet and Sons Of Anarchy from other revenge dramas is that the action we’re most anticipating (say, the murder of Claudius/Clay) keeps getting postponed while our hero determines if he’s certain about what he’s doing.

Lee Toric (Donal Logue) continues on his mission to take SAMCRO down as payback for his sister’s death. And raising the kids without Tara around is taking its toll on Jax. ”It’s getting more and more difficult to be a leader,” he admits, ”when my decisions are those a father has to make.

Why Sons of Anarchy is ‘Hamlet in a motorcycle jacket’
‘Queen” Gemma (Katey Sagal) is Gertrude. Clay (Ron Perlman) is Claudius, who murdered the last king, hooked up with the queen and took the seat at the head of the table. And Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is Hamlet, the vengeance-crazed brooder who loves wearing black and slowly drives his old lady mad — in this case, Tara (Maggie Siff).
