I know, I know, I know. I've been convinced that it Bobby Elvis is going to be the character on Sons of Anarchy to bite the dust the for the past few weeks. (And I'm totes ok with Bobby Elvis living to see as many days as Kurt Sutter has in mind for this character. Bobby Elivs is, by far, one of my favorites). But this from E! just puts a knot in my stomach:
Q: Any more hints on the brutal Sons of Anarchy death?
A: When we said that the brutal death on Sons of Anarchy was not a man in uniform, most you assumed that only eliminated Hale, Uncer and Trammell, but if you think about it, those MC cuts sure are a lot like uniforms. You can take everyone in a motorcycle gang out of the death pool, and we'll throw in Johnny Lewis' Prospect/Half-Sack as a bonus elimination. Tell us in the comments if you've figured out who that leaves in danger.So, in my read on this that it is someone, (1) not in the club and (2) who has been around since the first season. So here is the list of possible characters who might not live to see Fa Guan:
The IRA guy who got shot in the ass in season 1 who has the smarmy son (yeah, obviously, I don't remember his name)
I'm going to knock Gemma and Tara out of contention straight away. Surely, the writers wouldn't kill off one of the main characters this early in the series. I'm going to eliminate the IRA guy too because he is no longer close with the club and I don't really foresee his death leading to any heartbreak.
That leaves us with Oswald and Luann. We get hints that there are problems in the porn business with implications for a certain diva from the synopsis. And, I've got a hunch that the E!'s spoiler deliberately uses "man" instead of a gender neutral word, like "person." So, if I were a betting woman, my money would be on Luann to meet her untimely and violent demise this week. Why does this process of elimination make my stomach hurt? After seeing Gemma's terrible gang rape in the season premiere, I don't know if I can take watching Luann (or any other woman) getting her brains bashed in. I'm going to trust the show... the violence has been equally handed out to the male and female characters... but... the feminist in me is apprehensive...
