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

at . Comments

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."


well all 4 seasons were great... continous developement of charcters and club only missing more real club biker action, like corsos and drive bys, bikker meetings and some real hard street action with cool chases or so...
all the rest i realy liked so far. jax mutating from grungy kurt cobain to modern popstar justin timberlake was alittle bit funny and to see it a tich of comercial interrest here, but thats ok for sure the girls liked that :)
last for episodes you could have been a little scared to ask jax whats the time...he might have said: im so sorry.
at least he could have said: im so sorry ...its my only line....hehehe. season 5 definatly will bring back his speach i hope.
clay (perlman) is a great actor (i liked this guy in all his movies he made) well well till fall 2012 ? cant least more or less all the actors are cool... especialy the babes of luanns pornshow... i confess i liked them most. dont we all guys ?


I love "Sons"! I have Dvd of seasons 1-3 and keep watching them over and over and season 4 I've recorded. Wear my shirts proudly! Can't wait till next season.


Gemma needs to die a slow painful death. She doesn't deserve to be around and I feel she's a real weak person. I am excited to see how jax and Tara fair though.


The show is awesome the best serious type series FX put out when Rescue Me was on its way out I just hope season 5 and beyond are going to be as awesome as season 4 was cant wait to see when Jax or Opie actually kills Clay he really deserves it they should both unload a full clip in him


whats with all the niggers in the real world whites don't hang with niggers




I love this show I hate when it ends for the season.

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.


We don't know who we are until we're connected to someone else. We're just better human beings when with the person we're supposed to be with. I wasn't supposed to leave...I belong here.
