In the US Drama series Sons of Anarchy we follow the adventures of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, Redwood Original (SAMCRO). Jackson 'Jax' Teller, son of founding member John Teller, is the main character. The core business of SAMCRO is buying and distributing illegal weapons. When Jax's stepfather and President of the club Clarence 'Clay' Morrow intends to expand their business with drugs, the young man begins to question the club and his own values.

Season 3 started to air on 09/03/2008 on FX and the ratings went through the roof. With almost 5 million viewers a week, the show had become more successful than other hit shows such as Nip/Tuck or The Shield.

Creator Kurt Sutter (husband of lead actress Katey Sagal) once explained that he had enough ideas for seven seasons. Well, it looks like he's going to make it because Season 6 has started to air in September 2013 and the final Season 7 has already been confirmed.


Since there's only a limited time window for TV, a few scenes needed to be cut out. In addition to the uncut TV Versions, the Blu-ray/DVD contains a few Extended Versions.

1 min. and 57 sec.

Jax: "Oh, Jesus Christ. What the hell is this?"
Roosevelt: "My promise. County signed off on a special unit. Sons are classified as a gang. Their criminal activity is a threat to the community. So from now on, no cuts, no guns, no congregating outside your place of employment, understand?"
Jax: "Let me talk to you. I thought we have an understanding."
Roosevelt: "That all went away when I found out that the guy responsible for killing my wife is skipping town and I can't do anything about it. So the least I can do is make sure that this doesn't happen again."
Jax: "Who told you about Clay?"
Roosevelt: "Well, that doesn't matter. We both know it's true."
Jax: "Listen to me. You need to give me till the end of today. If you're not happy, keep your army."
Roosevelt: "Why? What's happening today?"
Jax: "Nothing, if they're up my ass. I kept my promise about Juice."
Roosevelt: "End of the day. Wrap it up! Let's go, boys!"




When Roosevelt and his colleague leave the building there's a short argument between Jax and Bobby.

Chibs: "What the hell is going on?"
Bobby: "It's about the goddamn Nomad attacks."
Jax: "It's handled. Now, wait in the clubhouse."
Bobby: "Who the hell do you think you're talking to? Huh? Wait inside."




In the following scene where Jax talks to Wayne Unser there is alternate footage as well as some more dialogue.

Unser: "Gang task force. That can't be good."
Jax: "Yeah. Our sheriff's a little upset that one of Rita's killers might be blowing out of town. Now, how would he know all about Clay?"
Unser: "Small town."
Chibs: "Big mouths."
