Karen Oswald is the wife of Elliott Oswald, a wealthy and powerful resident of Charming, California, on the FX original series Sons of Anarchy. Played by American actress Judith Hoag, Karen, unlike her husband, is unwilling to consort with the Sons, regardless of the circumstances. She appears only on the episode "Fun Town" in the series' first season.



Season 1Edit

"Fun Town"Edit

Karen is seen at Fun Town with her husband Elliott and daughter Tristen in the episode Fun Town. She seems eager to get away from Clay and the rest of the MC, though Elliott seems more willing to be seen with them. Later, she and Elliot are seen looking for Tristen in a panic, as she has disappeared from Fun Town.

Later, after Tristen had been admitted to the hospital, Karen lashed out at anyone who attempted to speak to her. After Gemma snuck into Tristen's room and got her to confess to her rape, Gemma confronted Karen, convincing her that forcing Tristen to keep the secret would do more harm than good. Karen finally "comes clean" to Gemma, identifying her daughter's rapist. Gemma relays the information to Jax, allowing the MC to take care of business.
