Sons of Anarchy‘s Gemma Teller has made a career out of spinning tall tales, but the Queen of Charming really topped herself when she fibbed to Jax that the Chinese were behind Tara’s murder.
That little white lie in last month’s premiere set off a horrific chain of events that, seven episodes into the final season, continues to claim lives. Last week, leading lady Katey Sagal guesstimated to TVLine that at least 10 of this season’s deaths can be traced back to Gemma’s heinous bit of misdirection — which got us thinking: How much blood is on the murderous matriarch’s hands? »

Christina Ricci and Lifetime are taking another whack at the life of notorious murder suspect Lizzie Bordon in the limited series “Lizzie Borden: The Fall River Chronicles,” the network announced today.
In the follow-up to January’s “Lizzie Borden Took An Ax,” this project will offer a fictionalized account of the events and people involved in Borden’s life as she encounters new-found celebrity after her controversial acquittal of the murders of her father and stepmother in 1892. When numerous people close to Lizzie — including her half-brother William (“Hatfields & McCoys'” Andrew Howard), Broadway luminaries, and the head of the criminal underworld start to mysteriously die under brutal and strange circumstances — legendary Pinkerton detective Charlie Siringo (Cole Hauser, “Good Will Hunting”) becomes determined to prove her involvement in their ultimate demise. Emmy nominee John Heard (“The Sopranos”) also stars as William Almy, the business partner of Lizzie’s murdered father Andrew. »

The longer these final-season episodes of Sons of Anarchy get, the less it seems actually happens in between the opening and closing shots of each hour (which in this case, is literally a 60-minute running time). Where it seemed last week was stalling until it could get to “Greensleeves”, this week’s episode seemed like it was twiddling its thumbs until it could get to its next narrative markers: the bloody face of Bobby Elvis and the image of Juice’s blank face standing in prison. For either one, it takes a whole lot of nothing happening for us to get to those moments – and in between SoA wasting time playing street politics (badly, I might add) and Unser slowly, slowly starting to piece together what Gemma is hiding, there’s nothing but fists, cigarette smoke, and overt set-up for the final act. Top that whole package off with another »

Just what Bates Motel needs — another madman.
Rahm will play Bob Paris, the wealthy, self-involved and gregarious owner of an elite hunting club who grew up with Romero. The pair now have a strained relationship, but they keep their mutual dislike under wraps. (Bates Ep Kerry Ehrin first teased Bob’s arrival at Comic-Con; see video below.)
Last night, FX dropped the new promo/spoiler clip (below) for their upcoming "Sons Of Anarchy" episode 8 of season 7, and it appears to be very interesting and quite violent as Jax and company are seen, engaging in another hardcore shootout. Also, the question is being asked if Jax really knows who killed Tara, knives get pulled, and more! The episode is titled, "The Separation of Crows." Their teaser description for episode 8, reads like this: " A traitor is suspected as Samcro searches for a missing member." Nicholas Guest guest stars as character John Teller. Episode 8 is scheduled to air on Tuesday night, October 28th at 9pm central time on FX. »
Geordie youth club drama Byker Grove was one of the greatest children's TV shows of the '80s and '90s, and next month it will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a special party in Newcastle.
But what ever happened to the stars of the show? We look back at some of the programme's breakout stars and forgotten favourites.
1. Declan Donnelly played Duncan
In the show's first series, Dec was going solo as 'Duncan' and it wasn't until he was united with Ant's 'Pj' that he truly became a central figure in the series. While they are remembered as being best buddies on the show, Duncan did end up nabbing Pj's girlfriend Debbie. After Pj went blind in a paintball accident. Hardly the stuff of best mates in retrospect.
2. Ant McPartlin played Pj

Sons of Anarchy, Season 7, Episode 7, “Greensleeves”
Directed by Paris Barclay
Written by Kurt Sutter
Airs Tuesdays at 10pm on FX
Jax Teller’s braggadocio is officially out of hand. Up to this point, the season has consisted of a variety of stupid plans from Jax, but they have seemed to be the right choice, at least from his point of view. Even if the audience can see clearly that his manipulations of rivals and lies to the club are bad ideas, his confidence in them has done enough to make his decisions believable. During Tuesday’s episode, however, Jax finally commits to throwing all caution to the wind. Having Jax stop offering any sort of explanation when he gives orders officially places the final season squarely in nonsensical territory and unmoors it from responsibility to reason all together.

There's still life in Sons Of Anarchy, even if its final season isn't quite doing its early days justice...
This review contains spoilers.
When an episode of television ends with a major character losing his eye, it seems strange to still be lobbing accusations of nothing happening. But part of me is seriously wondering if this final season is actually one big joke Kurt Sutter is playing on the fans.
That’s not to say that it’s actively bad television. Greensleeves was filled with nice character moments and set up for future developments. There’s nothing wrong with having an episode designed only to set the table for things to come, but the big problem is that this entire season has been nothing but table setting. And really, Bobby losing an eye is a shock value moment disguised as a development. If Bobby is alive and gets away next week, »
Spoiler alert: The Oct. 21 episode of Sons of Anarchy introduced Winsome (Gang Related's Inbar Lavi), a prostitute who trades information on her abusive pimp's whereabouts to Jax (Charlie Hunnam) in exchange for a new job at Diosa. As executive producer Paris Barclay, who directed the episode, tells EW in our full postmortem, it wasn't until showrunner Kurt Sutter saw the chemistry between Jax and Winsome that he decided to play with it again in episode 10. Lavi initially turned down the chance to audition for the show, only because she had the flu when she got the call. But hearing that »

Spoiler alert: The Oct. 21 episode of Sons of Anarchy, "Greensleeves," ended with Jax (Charlie Hunnam) receiving a box from August Marks that will haunt Samcro and viewers. Exec producer Paris Barclay, who directed the episode, takes EW inside filming that tragic twist and the other big moments. EW: Let's start at the beginning, with Juice being given back his cut at the site of John Teller's death, then setting off on his mission to get himself arrested so he can kill Lin inside. What is the significance of that site now? Barclay: I believe that it's going to be an »

Sons of Anarchy opened with Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and Juice (Theo Rossi) at the fateful location where John Teller died. Instead of killing Juice for his betrayal, Jax decided to give him a mission to test his loyality to the brotherhood. Jax tells him to get himself arrested by shooting at the tires of cop cars. Once he’s inside, he’s to kill Lin (Kenneth Choi). Unbeknownst to Juice, Jax has a back-up plan in the form of Ron Tully (Marilyn Manson) should he fail.
Sons of Anarchy Recap
While overseeing Red Woody’s latest production, Jax gets a visit from Unser (Dayton Callie), who informs him that Eglee (Marya Delver) is alive and talking. Eglee told Unser that the day she was shot both Samcro and Ab were there. She has no plans on ratting anyone out, so long as she can be guaranteed her own safety. Jax »
Anytime you’re watching Sons of Anarchy — especially this final, gruesome season — you’ve got to prepare yourself for a few casualties. It’s just par for the course with the FX drama, which has racked up an impressive body count in the past six episodes alone.
But there are some Sons characters you just hope will never be in the line of fire, and when they are, it’s all you can do to remember that this is a work of fiction.
This week, I’m of course talking about Bobby, who found himself caught in the crosshairs of an outraged August Marks. »
“Greensleeves” was a bit of a reprieve from the growing body count that Sons of Anarchy has been throwing at viewers this season. Unfortunately, that didn’t keep the tragedies at bay. Even with Jax (Charlie Hunnam) attempting to come to a less bloody resolution for the conflict that he created with Marks (Billy Brown), there were too many variables at play to have predicted the outcome of tonight’s shocking final scene.
Let’s face it. Jax practically begged Marks to retaliate. He’s been stacking the odds against himself from the very beginning. Not only has he created a situation where everyone on the wrong side of the law was forced to choose a side, and even some wearing badges (it wasn’t surprising that Officer Eglee chose to remain on good terms with the club), but ultimately, it wasn’t between him and Lin. When all the chips fell, »
