Clay to face his mortality
Here’s an ominous tease if we’ve ever heard one. Since the beginning of Sons of Anarchy, club president Clay (Ron Perlman) has dealt with the perils of aging — specifically the arthritis in his hands. And this season, which starts Sept. 6 and picks up 14 months after we last saw the gang, will prove to be the most difficult one yet for the fearless leader. ”It’s definitely gotten worse because he’s been in prison,” says SOA creator Kurt Sutter. ”I think we’ll really get a sense of [Clay’s] mortality this season.” The result, Sutter adds, will give Clay ”a sense of how much time he has left” as boss and will have ”a big emotional impact” on him.
Psych: No big bad this season?
Though Psych is well into filming season 6, star James Roday says the show doesn’t yet have plans for a ”new überbaddie,” following the conclusion of the Yin/Yang murder-mystery trilogy last season. ”But I do think there’s value in creating a new supervillain that you can get more than one episode out of,” says Roday. In the meantime, fans can expect a nod to the boardgame/movie Clue and a vampire-themed episode.
Hope for Jimmy and Sabrina
Raising Hope creator Greg Garcia is in no rush to get Jimmy (Lucas Neff) together with his longtime crush Sabrina (Shannon Woodward), but last season’s finale, which featured the cutie checkout girl pining for a costumed Jimmy in flashbacks, hinted at something in the future. ”We know out there in the ether somewhere that she was attracted to him and she doesn’t know that was him,” says Garcia. ”So perhaps that gets discovered at some point.”
