Sons of Anarchy's Perlman of the Hour

FX's motorcycle-gang drama has sometimes soft-pedaled the  Beauty and the Beast  vet's character, SAMCRO prez Clay Morrow, depicting him as more of an arthritic pussycat than a ferocious tiger. But in  SOA 's superb Season 4 — and especially in this week's standout episode, "Hands" (directed by  Robocop 's Peter Weller) — Perlman got in touch with his inner Hellboy. Clay ordered a hit on stepson Jax's old lady, Tara (Maggie Siff), and was unable to stop it once he learned Jax and their kids would be with her. The botched result: Tara's hand got crushed, along with her career as a surgeon.

No doubt about it:  SOA' s central dramatic conflict — and Perlman's compelling performance — is really getting revved up. What did you think of Ron Perlman on last night's  Sons of Anarchy ?

And if Clay will so readily take out Piney and Tara, how much time does Gemma have before he turns on her?Sure, Clay tried to call the hit back when he found out Jax and the babies were with Tara, but big deal. Too little,...

Sons of Anarchy Tease: What Has Clay Done?!?

If this week's Sons of Anarchy episode was based around a number of quiet, revealing conversations , take it from someone who has already seen next Tuesday's "Hands."
