Gish’s character, Althea Jarry, will call on her years of experience in Stockton’s Organized Crime Unit to pursue the murderers of former Sheriff Eli Roosevelt and Tara Knowles (the latter of whom was butchered to death via meat fork by Katey Sagal’s Gemma). Jarry quickly realizes she’ll have to work with SAMCRO to keep the peace, even if that means playing by their rules. But she has a few of her own that might surprise the club.
