Troubles plague the motorcycle gang in season 3: Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and his hog-riding brothers continue to search for Jax’s kidnapped baby son Abel, but the little one’s been taken to Belfast, where an internal IRA conflict involving Jimmy O (Titus Welliver) is raging. Explains creator Kurt Sutter, ”I want to reveal some of the backstory of how the Sons got involved in gunrunning, have Jax learn some information about his [late] dad, and perhaps knock him off the pedestal a bit.” Also, matriarch Gemma (Katey Sagal) — still on the lam for a murder she didn’t commit — cares for her dementia-stricken father (guest star Hal Holbrook). And after the drive-by shooting in the premiere, the town of Charming (and its police force) begins to doubt the Sons’ ability to keep them safe. Saddle up! PREMIERED SEPT. 7
