Summary of Sons of Anarchy Season 5 DVD Box Set
The series begins with the torching of a SAMCRO gun-assembly warehouse and the theft of guns by a rival club, the Mayans. The police attend the scene, where a cop, Tramell, who is on the SAMCRO payroll finds two dead illegal immigrants. Meanwhile, Jax's estranged meth-addicted wife Wendy, who is pregnant with his child, collapses. An emergency C-section is performed and the baby is delivered ten weeks prematurely. Jax struggles with the direction the club is taking, away from its roots and into less legal territory. Gemma tells Wendy that if she tries to gain custody of the child, Abel, that she will kill Wendy, and Gemma supplies her with drugs which Wendy eventually takes and from which she overdoses. Charming Deputy Chief Hale finds the immigrants' bodies at the burnt-out warehouse, but Tig and Bobby remove them before he can forensically examine them. Tara receives a threatening phone call from a former boyfriend and ATF agent, Josh Kohn, who comes to Charming to investigate the Sons.
To solve a gun-trafficking problem under the ATF's watchful eye, the Sons head out to Indian Hills, Nevada, to patch over the Devil's Tribe Motorcycle Club. While there, Clay sleeps with a girl named Cherry, who also takes a liking to Half Sack. Kohn follows the Sons and witnesses their shoot out with the Mayans. Kohn provides Tara pictures of Jax in very compromising places to try to split the two. The Sons soon become aware of Kohn's presence in Charming. Clay is arrested on charges of aiding and abetting a triple homicide after guns the Sons sold were used in a shoot out. Cherry arrives in Charming, and Gemma realizes that Clay has slept with her. Shortly after, Gemma assaults her with a skateboard, for which she is also arrested.
The season opens with the arrival of a new threat in Charming, white separatists called the League Of American Nationalists (LOAN). LOAN's leader and backer businessman Ethan Zobelle and Zobelle's enforcer A.J. Weston, seek to drive the Sons of Anarchy from the town of Charming. To send a message to SAMCRO, Zobelle arranges for the kidnapping and sexual assault of Gemma by Weston and two others who gang rape Gemma. Zobelle's own daughter, Polly, lures Gemma into this trap. Gemma chooses to keep silent about her rape to prevent her husband and son from retaliating.
From prison, Big Otto reaches out to SAMCRO, asking them to help his wife, Luann, and her pornography studio after a raid from law enforcement and intimidation from a rival pornographer, Georgie Caruso, threaten her business. Jax proposes that SAMCRO become partners in Luann’s porn business and offer protection to her and her performers, a move he hopes will raise money for the club legitimately while they rebuild their other revenue streams.
Days later, Gemma is hiding up north in Rogue River, Oregon with Tig, while the club tries to sort things out in Charming. The club tries to close in on Cameron's trail, but find that he has liquidated his assets and apparently fled the country. Gemma and Tig visit Gemma's father, Nate (Hal Holbrook) who suffers from dementia. At the end of Half-Sack's wake, masked men commit a drive-by shooting. Deputy Hale is fatally run down by the vehicle.
Having fled to Belfast with Abel, Cameron confesses his sins to his cousin Father Ashby, an intermediary between Jimmy O and the True IRA Council. Ashby subsequently has Cameron killed, and suggests he will give Abel up for adoption.
The Sons hire a bounty hunter to try to track down Abel, and they believe he and Cameron are in Vancouver. SAMCRO has a bail hearing for the weapons charges upcoming, but they agree to jump bail. SAMCRO receives an email showing Cameron dead in Belfast.
The imprisoned SAMCRO members leave the penitentiary after their 14 month stay and are welcomed home by Lieutenant Eli Roosevelt of the San Joaquin Sheriffs' Department, the new law enforcement presence in Charming. He forbids any paroled members from wearing club cuts in his jurisdiction, declaring them to be a form of gang association. To Clay's displeasure, the club learns that Jacob Hale has fostered the construction of a new suburban development, Charming Heights.
U.S. Attorney Lincoln Potter seeks the help of Lieutenant Roosevelt to build a RICO case against SAMCRO. On the eve of Opie's wedding, Jax proposes to Tara, who accepts when Jax explains that he plans to leave the club. The Sons prepare to trade guns with the Russians, using the guise of Opie's wedding as a cover to avoid the law. In retaliation for an attack on Jax in prison, SAMCRO betrays the Russians and murders several of the group – including an undercover agent working with Potter.
After Gemma finds one of Maureen's notes in Tara's belongings, she questions Clay on the allegiance of Jax and Tara to the club. Eventually, she asks Tara about the notes, who openly denies knowledge of their existence.
