TVLine Items: SOA Promo Touts 'Hurt'-ful Pact, Fox Nixes Dads Reshoot, DWTS Pro Out and More
Two unexpected foes will align in Sons of Anarchy‘s sixth season with one common goal : to “hurt” Jax.
The following promo for the gritty FX drama’s upcoming run (bowing Sept. 10 at 10/9c) features an incarcerated Clay working closely with the kinda insane Lee Toric (Donal Logue). Sons boss Kurt Sutter, however, has said that the dethroned king’s journey this year is “redemption,” so maybe this is all just a ploy to get back into SAMCRO’s good graces?
Press PLAY below, then hit the comments with your theories.

• Fox has declined the Media Action Network for Asian Americans’ suggestion that the polarizing Dads pilot either reshoot or remove a scene deemed offensive, Deadline reports. The sequence in question involves an Asian-American woman (played by Brenda Song) required by her bosses to dress as a “sexy Asian schoolgirl” for the gratification of visiting Chinese businessmen. Instead, execs assured the organization that the character is portrayed as a “strong, intelligent, empowered young woman” throughout the season.
