Sons of Anarchy Season 5 Teases: The Return of Opie, Wendy?

by at .

It would have been too easy.

That was Kurt Sutter's response yesterday during a conference call with reporters, when asked why he chose to keep Clay alive on the season four finale of Sons of Anarchy.

"We get to play that out now with Jax and Clay, and I think that's great turf for potent storytelling," the creator said. "I want to see what that looks like for a season or two."

Aside from extreme tension between past and current SAMCRO Presidents, what can viewers expect from the intense series on season five? Sutter offered the following teases:

Will Opie return? "I think it’s all just sort of catching up with Opie and he’s not a guy who processes things quickly. It will take a minute for him to get back to that table, if he does get back and that’s something we get to play off next season."

What about Wendy? "I like the character very much... I just think she will be, in a very general way, very interesting to throw into the mix with Gemma and Tara next season."

Is Tara the new Gemma? Not totally: "It'll be an interesting season between the two of them... [Gemma] has ultimately created a little bit of a Frankenstein... I don't think Gemma will be usurped... Tara is not Gemma. She's not there yet. Next season, not that I'm going to take a step back, and bring her back the wavering Tara that she's been to a certain extent, but I think she will have her struggles in that role."

What will the tone of season five be? "My sense for next season is that it will be a slower boil. This season, everyone was sort of out of breath at the end of every episode, and my sense is that next season that won’t be the case."

    Watched the show from the beginning and love it! Best so far, the addition of Jimmy Smits as Gemmas love. He could easily be Jax's new VP! Gemmas role should stay strong! She is powerful in a quite way! I'm beginning to dislike Jax.

    Curtis gemma is jax's mother. Maureen ashby does have a daughter with john teller. Clay did kill john teller an gemma knows it. Under covered it up. Jax knows about clay killing his father but not about under n gemma's involvement. Watch the damn show and don't comment on shit u don't know about. This is for SOA fans only. Anarchy baby

    Coming from a motorcycle family and now retired Marine living in Naples Italy and meeting lots of still hardcore bikers this show really gives the two sides of bikers in General. Yes there are outlaw bikers and in there way of life it is about family and club like it is for me Country and family I own a Harley myself, have been to various bike rallies in Europe this show is done very very well! its kinda of like Dexter you know he is the bad guy but you still root for him. I think this show makes us realize the danger out there on both sides of the law and what people can and will do to survive. AKA G

    hey what if maureen ashby ends up being jaxs real mother. cuz i mean gemma isnt blonde. and his john teller isnt a blonde. jax has blonde hair. so what if jaxs dad was killed by clay cuz john teller wanted to stop selling guns and and at the time was with Gemma. what if clay killed john teller and his mom helped so that they can be together and steal the MC president spot. i mean unser has been on there pay roll but it seems to me that they black mailed him into it. so what secret is clay and gemma trying to keep him from telling? and what if bobby and tig have something to do with johns death too? cuz in season 1 the patch over episode at the bar clay asked bobby if he had anything to worry about with jax yet? and bobby said not yet. so what if everything we know isnt the truth? maureen ashby could be his real mother. cuz in season 3 when they got to belfast why maureen ashby look at jaxs like he was her son? why did gemma also look at maureen like she didnt want her to tell jaxs what she knows or something. and also one other thing muareen ashby has jaxs temper. when cherry lied to the MC about Oneill being a traiter and where he might be. maureen grabbed cherry by the throat and showed alittle bit of jaxs temper. cuz thats something jaxs would do. one more thing. one of my fav characters died in season 2 and i think he shouldve stayed til season 3 and maybe died during the explotion or something. cuz yeah jax is my fav character along with opie but in season 3 where jax steps up to oneill and fights him...i think half sack shouldve been in that part since he boxes really good. just my thoughts. sons of anarchy is my favorite show in the world.
