Sons Of Anarchy Spoilers: Katey Sagal Discusses Impending Jax/Gemma Showdown, Insists Gemma Isn’t A Psychopath

It’s hard to believe that there are only seven episodes left before Sons of Anarchy bids adieu.

In a new interview with, Katey Sagal offers new details about the finale and how things will play out for Gemma who she insists is not a psychopath.

“Yes. She is not a psychopath,” Sagal said. “Do I think that, given different circumstances, she would have killed her daughter-in-law? No. What happened was a perfect storm. She really did believe that her son and the club and her entire way of life was being brought down by this woman, and she really did believe that Nero was leaving her, and she really did believe that this was the end of life as we know it. And she was also getting super loaded that night. She didn’t premeditatively kill Tara. She didn’t even know Tara was going to come to the house. It was literally a blind rage. If you asked her after the fact, she would have been in a blackout. Like, “What happened?” She’s not a psychopath, because it’s not like she doesn’t have remorse. She does, and she feels very sorry and sad that that happened. But at the same time, she has rationalized to herself why it’s good to throw somebody else under the bus and not tell the truth.”

When asked how quickly Gemma’s world comes crashing down, Sagal suggestion that her deterioration starts immediately.

“What do we have, another seven episodes? That’s how quickly they unravel.”

Finally, Sagal said that she does know how the final showdown between Jax and his mother will happen, but that she is sworn to secrecy.

“I know a lot of answers to that, and I’m not going to tell you. [Laughs] Except that it will not disappoint. Keep watching.”
