SAMCRO is reunited and it feels so good – to me! And sounds good for the other millions of Bates Motel and Sons of Anarchy fans. Ryan Hurst will be starting a six-episode arc starting this Monday in Bates Motel 3.2 “The Arcanum Club” as an illegal guns dealer, hiding behind a motorcycle shop (I know, I know – best thing ever), who gets tied up with Dylan (Max Thieriot) and Caleb (SOA’s Kenny Johnson).
Watch the videos and check out the two pics of Hurst from the episode here below.
The first video shows where Chick Hogan (Hurst) wanders over looking for his dog on Dylan’s new property. There is a simple exchange which is stuffed with hidden meanings. Caleb interrupts and they both pretend they don’t know each other. Acting scorecard: Chick – 0, Caleb – 1.
The second video reveals Chick Hogan bringing the father/son/uncle/nephew duo into his shop. “There’s rules, right? We respect the rules, that’s how we respect each other. Right? If we all understand the rules, we can all coexist. Isn’t that right? [Pause] Dylan,” uttered while he stared at Caleb seemingly without blinking. Just listening him utter that to Dylan and Caleb in a Godfather-ish tone, makes me realize how much we’ve been suffering from Ryan Hurst withdrawal.
As an added bonus, we threw in a video of adorable Olivia Cooke wrapping up season 2.
I think fans need to rally to keep Hurst on longer. The tension is so incredibly palpable between Chick and Caleb. In the meantime, Dylan seems oblivious. Don’t know if he’s ignoring it, not noticing it, or think it has something to do with his weird father. Anything but the “not noticing” part will be acceptable. Dylan never struck me as a dumb guy, but who knows?
Bates Motel airs Mondays, 9pm, on A&E.
