From the looks of the following image, the club’s new leader, Jax, will take a hands-on role in dealing with this latest distraction. Let’s hope for Tara’s sake it’s not too hands-on.

  • I think both Charlie and Maggie are great actors, but I just don’t see ANY chemistry between Jax and Tara at all. I hope Ashley spices it up a bit somehow….? Idk, lol.

    • Yeah, I’m sure the STD’s will feel pretty “spicy”

    • Yeah, I think they have amazing chemsitry, and I’m starting to get annoyed with all the random ho-bags that end up all over Jax, it’s rather annoying to be honest and getting old.

      • it’s a biker show what do u expect!

      • I think Tara and Jax have amazing chemistry. From the very first episode! I adore them together.
        This random ho business is getting quite annoying, but I have faith that Kurt Sutter will keep their love alive this season. In fact, I hope they finally get married! Kurt said in an interview that Tara and Jax are destined to be together and I whole heartily agree :)

  • wtf tara and jax as been threw hell and now this really

    Comment by cassandra – August 6, 2012 02:32 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The show wouldn’t be were it is now without Tara trying to replace her would be the biggest mistake the show could make and plus they are PERFECT together she is what brings the good out of him and what is helping the club see the truth of the club and how they lost there true perpose which is protecting the town of Charming and its gone in the ways of GREED rather than sticking to their true roots!!!

  • Are you kidding? Tara and Jax are awesome together!

  • who cares Jax is still so fine.. ugh i would run away with him in a heart beat..

  • Another bimbo joins the cast to play yet another skanky character. *yawn*

    Comment by MissLovinTheFAIL – August 6, 2012 03:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Exactly, which is why yet another Jax cheating on Tara and having complications is a pretty unlikely storyline. Sutter has done pretty well avoiding predictability so far, though last season was a bit light.

      Comment by Sons Of Anarchy Foru (@soaforums) – August 6, 2012 03:17 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • @ SOA forums, I hope so. Ashley is still a very poor cast choice, for many reasons, imo.

        • Lmao ok first of all, I know what it means, and second, both of you twits are not only stupid, but quite laughable. So now NOT liking a certain “actress” makes me a misogynist?? Awesome logic there. Or is it that I’m a misogynist for not having the same opinion as you? Ashley Tisdale acts like an airhead bimbo, and her acting is atrocious.

          Comment by MissLovinTheFAIL – August 6, 2012 07:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Wow seriously. There are some people that fit in with the show and some people that will just completely ruin it. I already have a feeling my favorite tv show is going to be completely ruined with that blonde Ashely chich in it. Y’all could of picked better.

    • You should at least watch the episode before making a comment like this.

    • Don’t worry, bimbo’s get slapped and trashed on. it should be entertaining

    • I so agree Ashley t. Does not fit into this at all!

    • Best show ever

      Comment by Bryan – August 6, 2012 05:24 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • And I am sure that some people thought a former Disney kid could not play a gang raped victim and FBI agent tracking down a serial killer successfully either. Give it a chance before assuming that it is a bad idea.

  • Ashley on SOA??? WHAT A JOKE!!

    Comment by Angie – August 6, 2012 03:23 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • It doesn’t say she’s with him, it’s just a picture. She could be a long lost sister or cousin. Who knows, but Sutter seems to know how to write and tell stories pretty well, I don’t doubt this season will deliver!

  • I hope Tara gets killed off!

    Comment by Tatum – August 6, 2012 03:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • yes! so that jax could spend the last half of s5 to s7 just beating women after sleeping with them! that’s a much better show right? angry jax is the best!

      Comment by Ashley – August 6, 2012 03:32 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Tara and Jax are opposites. Opposites attract. Like a magnet. Turn them the wrong way and they repel. Perfect couple. With a few children involved and you add another element. This could take them to a new Irish Republic episode. With a spy twist to boot.

  • Omg I can’t stand her she needs to go back to Disney! But I deff can’t wait till September one more month woot woot lol <3 Jax tellier <3

  • It looks like she’s scared and Jax is helping her, I’m not Tara fan but I really dont see this new girl being a problem. Also Jax is looking sexy as heck, I cant wait for his hair to keep growing out

  • Yikes!!!! Cant wait!!!

    Comment by maria – August 6, 2012 03:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Sutter isn’t stupid. He wouldn’t have brought her to the show if she wasn’t gonna do a good job. And I don’t think jax will cheat with her or anything. It’s been done, sutter doesn’t repeat. Have faith. The show will prevail.

    Comment by Celeste – August 6, 2012 03:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I HATE who Clay has ended up being, can’t wait to see Jax run it w. Tara at his side and I hope the rest of the club finds out all the stuff Clay did including killing Piney! & Ashley doesn’t fit in w. This series she’s very high school musical. Guess we’ll see

  • Jazz and tarantula are awesome together and who cares about Ashley tisdale shes in two episodes it won’t make or break the show.. kurt sutter is a master mind when it comes the storyline to soa….

  • Tara has given up everything including her hand for a dude that looks like a billy goat. Just cause ashley is a disney actress doesnt mean she sucks i mean look at…. Well… Um…. Wait yeah it does

    Comment by Megan – August 6, 2012 03:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • she’s only gonna be in 2 episodes, 1&3. i don’t think she’ll be that much of a problem.

    Comment by Nick – August 6, 2012 04:01 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Give her a chance guys! Jeez, Sutter has been really good at involving the right people in the show. Have some faith in him (and forgive him for the yawn fest of season 3 )

    Comment by Vicky – August 6, 2012 04:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • i think sutter will definitely deliver,and i dont think ashley is there for jax to sleep with,but im sure sutter has a good reason for her in this,and i frigin cant wait!!!!! love soa!!!!!!!!

    • SOA repeats are shown every Thursday morning on FX (usually 3 eps a week at 2, 3, & 4 eastern time). Looks like they’re starting with s4 this week, right up until the season 5 premiere

  • Sounds like to me she is going to be another “croweater” or patch whore however you want to say it! Jax & Tara will make it just fine!! She just needs to stay away from Jax!!! Or tara will rip her head off

    Comment by Brian – August 6, 2012 04:07 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I was a little like wtf when I first heard about Ashley joining the cast. I’ve never watched anything she’s been in, all I know is she’s from Disney. Just because someone comes from Disney doesn’t mean they won’t be great actors elsewhere. Think about all the roles all the characters from SOA have been in prior to SOA…would those characters have “fit in” to SOA? Not hardly. So, I say give the girl a chance, you never know, she might prove to be one hell of an actress.

    Comment by Joe – August 6, 2012 04:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Let’s hope it’s only 2 episodes. I can’t imagine what Sutter is thinking.

    Comment by Ruby – August 6, 2012 04:36 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The actress playing Tara is horrible as an actress in this role. Its the only thing I don’t like about SOA.

    Comment by Gregg – August 6, 2012 04:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • must be why she got so much critic love last season. get out of you have nothing nice to say. thanks now.

      Comment by megan – August 6, 2012 06:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Looks like Taras becoming Gemma version 2.0. She didnt let a blond tramp run her off the first time… Now harder than before do you really think she’ll let a blond tramp come between her and Jax this time??? I think not!

    Comment by Amber – August 6, 2012 04:59 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • She isn’t going to ruin the show. She has a script to follow. She is here to be either a scooter tramp, porn star, or dancer, then again, maybe she is Sac’s sister and just wants to get his stuff back. Sutter has talent. Seen many Disney girls grow up and be great or lousy. She has to build her resume.

  • As Charlie said at Comic Con… This is more of a business relationship. He said its not romantic or anything like that, so please stop making people mad.

  • Ashley “Disney” Tisdale is a horrible actress. Why is she on the show? Send her back to Disney. What makes her think she can act. Perhaps, her rhinoplasty and her blonde hair. I love Tara and Jax. I hope there isn’t too much strain between them. They belong together. I mean really, another bobble headed bleach blonde bimbo.Give it a rest.

  • As long as Jax, Tara and their boys are fine, I don’t care if they cast Justin Bieber as the leader of a rival club

  • I think Miss Deisney needs to end up like Miss Porn Pu55y Ima – - – OUT! To those of you who have a prob with Jax and Tara together : Wake up! They make the show what it is, they have loads of chemistry and are perfect together….. Counting the days till the next season :-)

    Comment by Dientjie – August 7, 2012 12:00 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • People are so mean. Ashley has played a bimbo very well, but by all accounts is a kick ass little actress and a smart woman. I’m sure they released this pic to stir the pot, not to actually hint that Jax would cheat. He won’t, he loves Tara too much. Maybe she is Tig’s other daughter or something :), either way, I’m sure she will fit in perfectly, I’m excited to see her play a real(ish) person and not a Disney character!

    Comment by Mrs. A – August 7, 2012 12:35 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • It’s actually stupid labeling Ashley as “Disney”. Her career didn’t start with Disney and it won’t end there. Give her a chance to move on. How do you know she can’t pull off this role? All the roles she’s done so far – and I’ve seen them all – Disney or not, she did them very well and she’s always getting praised by critics. She’s trying something new here, give her a chance!

  • I get why people are so quick to trash a Disney actress, as they obviously don’t think she has any range. But why don’t you wait to watch the episodes to see how she does? Kurt hasn’t failed us yet. Plus, I think one Ryan Hurst got his big break in a Disney movie and everyone seems to love Opie.

    Comment by Kim – August 9, 2012 03:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree. Give her a chance. Kurt Sutter knows what the hell he is doing! And I love Opie too!!!
