From creator Kurt Sutter comes the adrenaline-charged Sons of Anarchy, featuring extended episodes and kicking into high gear with its biggest, most explosive season ever! As SAMCRO’s new president, Jax is surrounded by ruthless enemies and gut-wrenching betrayal. With Gemma fighting for control of the family and a bloodthirsty Clay out for revenge, Jax finds himself haunted by the sins of his past. Alliances are forged, friends are murdered, and loyalties are put to the ultimate test. Now, with the truth in sight, Jax must do whatever it takes to secure the legacy of brotherhood and protect his family — even if it costs him everything.
Each season, Sons of Anarchy provides the audience with a look into SAMCRO and the members of the club. We witness the love, betrayal, and friendships between the Sons and we grow attached to certain characters. However, whenever there has been a new kid in town, trouble is sure to follow. Season 5 was full of new characters from Lee Toric (Donal Logue) to the mysterious Nero Padilla (Jimmy Smits). But who is Nero and how does he fit into SAMCRO? Let’s find out!
Who is Nero Padilla?
Neron “Nero” Padilla calls himself a “companionator,” and is the owner and operator of Diosa, an escort service agency. He was a former gangbanger who threw his lucrative business was able to retire and live his life taking care of his disabled son. It’s not long before crosses paths with SAMCRO, and their vixen matron Gemma Teller-Morrow.
It’s Just Business
Even though Nero has proven to be a sensitive, sweet man, Jax dislikes that he and his mom have grown fond of each other. That said, Jax sees Nero as a mentor; in a heart to heart, Nero shares his retirement plans with Jax. Seeing an opportunity for business development, Jax and Nero decide to partner together to grow the escort service. The deal comes at a price – Nero must stop seeing Gemma.
Gemma’s New Chance at Love
When Nero meets Gemma, she is a mess. Her marriage to Clay has disintegrated from all the lies and beatings. Her son Jax and her daughter-in-law have lost all respect for her. She is all but banished in their household and she has no one to talk to; no friends left. Nero, however, sees a side of Gemma that she never sees. Her fragile vulnerable side and slowly they become friends, and lovers. As Gemma comes to know Nero, she grows to love him. But like all things in her life, Gemma can never be happy, and things with Nero come to a heartbreaking close
A Turn for the Worse
When Jax disappears, Nero steps in to help the Sons track him down. In his zeal to succeed, Nero shoots and kills a member of his old crew while playing video games. When one of his guys accuses him of forgetting his roots, nero shoots him in the head. “You wanted me back, I’m back,” he says as he exits. Unfortuantely for Nero, his old crew had nothing to do with Jax’s disappearance and to make things worse, Clay lets him know that it was all a “misunderstanding.”
What will happen to Nero as “Sons of Anarchy” progresses? Only time will tell.
