OCTOBER 19 – OCTOBER 25
The epitome of criminal masterminds. He talks the talk and walks the walk. This week's #1 bad guy is also SAMCRO's enemy #1. His name is August Marks, and he's not to be f%#$!& with! SAMCRO tried to blackmail Marks by burying the body of a murdered preacher on one of Marks' construction sites. This is the same preacher he was forcing to sell him his church. SAMCRO threatened to take the evidence to the police, but their threats were meaningless. SAMCRO had f#@&%!$ with the wrong one this time! Marks had his security team (all ex-military) capture and torture a member of SAMCRO, Bobby Munson. Marks then had his men cut out Bobby's eye. August Marks sent Bobby's patches, his eye, and a iPAD with a video of it all! Then he gave them 24hrs to comply to his demands, or they would get another piece of Bobby. He is ruthless, and he is not playing around.
ABOUT THE CHARACTER
August Marks is the current biggest crime boss and drug kingpin in Oakland, formerly Damon Pope's number two. He is a very cold person who has no problem doing what is necessary to get his point across. He states to Jax, before a meet with Pope, that he had known Mr. Pope since he was seventeen, showing a long term affiliation to him and complete devotion. He took over Pope's position of power after his boss' demise.
Jax met with August to discuss the alliance building between the Chinese and the Mayans against him. He informed him of the current situation and August assured him that as long as they were patient, they'd be able to sort things out. Jax also promised him that he'd wait to the right moment to get revenge for the murder of his wife, which was worrying August. However, Jax had already begun his revenge on Lin and the Chinese, who he believed were responsible and he was going to keep it secret from August.
