Look who else is coming back to Charming!

Following the news that Donal Logue will appear on multiple episodes of Sons of Anarchy Season 6, we can now also confirm that Jimmy Smits will reprise the role of Nero Padilla later this year. On a full-time basis.

Nero with Jax

The charismatic "companionator" cozied up to Gemma on Sons of Anarchy Season 5 and also struck up an alliance with Jax. When we last left him, Nero had returned to his former gang banging ways.

Look for Smits to appear on all 13 Season 6 episodes, as the show heads into production this summer for a fall premiere.

Sons of Anarchy Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.


Jax: Dad's manuscript...wasn't about changing the club. It was about changing his legacy. I don't belong here Mom, and neither does Abel.
Gemma: Where's my grandson?
Jax: He's with a father who didn't torture and kill a man yesterday.
