Jax might not kill his mother when he finds out that she killed Tara, Charlie Hunnam says.
It’s almost guaranteed at this point that Jax will find out eventually, with both actors and producers on the show confirming it over the past year.
So the real question is what he’ll do about it when he finds out.
“Anyone else in the world, 100 percent guaranteed he’s gonna murder them in slow and brutal fashion, but it’s his mother, you know. It’s gonna be complicated,” Charlie Hunnam told Entertainment Weekly.
“I don’t envy Kurt in trying to figure out the right way to approach that.”
Showrunner and show creator Kurt Shutter wouldn’t delve into the details too much.
“The question is, does Jax ever get the whole truth? Is he supposed to get the whole truth? If he only gets part of the truth, what does that mean? We’ll play with all that stuff,” he said.
“I think once he gets information, as much of it as he gets, we’ll see it play out in a different emotional way.”
Sutter did reveal that a core character dies in episode 9 or episode 10.
Executive producer Paris Barclay said earlier this year that Gemma will beg her son for forgiveness when the truth is finally revealed.
“It’s impossible for Gemma frankly now. I don’t think there’s any coming back from before. Even if she did it with the best of intentions, it’s still beyond the pale. You know when Jax finds this out, it’s not going to be pretty. After all, she can cover her tracks as long as she wants but sooner or later the chickens are going to come home to roost,” Barclay told BuddyTV.
“And she’s really going to have no place to go. I think she has to do what Gemma does, which is scramble and hope that it works out. And eventually I’m sure she has a plan to beg forgiveness and it may or may not work. May or may not work.”
