‘Sons of Anarchy’ Fans Agree One Scene Was Funniest on the Show

by Allison Hambrick

Sons of Anarchy fans are pretty vocal–they like what they like. So when questioning which scene was the funniest, the answer was unanimous.

While the biker show is more known for its seriousness, it’s not without comedy. For the fans over on Reddit, one moment stood above the rest. In a season six episode, Clay Morrow, played by Ron Perlman, gives a memorable sermon. In a prison chapel, Morrow stands up and shouts his praises for the female genitalia. Of course, he used expletive terms as opposed to technical.

Warning: this video contains explicit language.

“Absolutely love this scene!” wrote one user. “Thanks to either brilliant writing or beautiful improvisation it’s one of the top 10 scenes from the entire show!”

“Gotta hand it to Ron Perlman,” said another. “He was great in that scene. His delivery was hilarious.”

Although, one user was less positive. They said that they and their husband “cringe so hard” and “fast-forwarded” through the scene. They felt it “was too out of place” in such a serious show. They did, however, add: “No judgement on those who thought it was funny.”

The Wild Theory Connecting Sons of Anarchy and The Sopranos

Additionally, the Sons of Anarchy subreddit is no stranger to fun ideas. Some of these ideas can get wild, however. One specific theory suggests that Drea De Matteo’s characters in Sons of Anarchy and The Sopranos are the same.

De Matteo played Wendy, the first wife of protagonist Jax Teller, in Sons of Anarchy. Unfortunately, the character’s drug problem causes their son to be born with defects, and Wendy goes to rehab until season four.

However, De Matteo’s role in The Sopranos was more substantial. Her character, Adriana, was the girlfriend of Tony’s protege Christopher Moltisanti. De Matteo’s performance was well-received, and she won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. Her character meets an untimely end when the FBI blackmails her with her drug addiction and shady business practices. When she is discovered, Christopher reports her to Tony, who has his right hand, Silvio, take her out. Adriana is told she is visiting Christopher in the hospital. When Adriana catches on and tries to escape, Silvio drags her into the woods and shoots her.

Because her death occurred offscreen, fans often speculate whether she survived. There is little evidence connecting the characters. Both share a drug problem and an accent. In addition, Sons of Anarchy references not just The Sopranos but Adriana herself. In one scene, Jax quips to a frightened coworker, “you thought I brought you here to Adriana you?” One can guess, then, that The Sopranos is fictional in that world. The creator of the theory connecting the two shows suggests Jax is only referencing his ex-wife’s actual backstory.

While the connection is unlikely, it is still fun for fans to speculate.
