Kurt Sutter Teases Sons of Anarchy Season 5: Which Way Will Jax Go?

by at . Comments

Months before Sons of Anarchy Season 5 kicks off in September, and days before he and his cast take the stage at Comic-Con, Kurt Sutter sat down with TV Guide for an in-depth interview.

The SAMCRO VP

Touching upon the personal lots of various characters, the creator first summed up his theme/vision for the season ahead. What kind of SAMCRO President will Jax Teller make?

"Is he going to become J.T., his father? Or is he forced to become a leader like Clay? Does the nature of the outlaw world force you to be that sort of Machiavellian kind of guy who ultimately has to do things behind the club's back to protect the club? The flip side of that is: If you don't become Clay, are you then perceived as weak? Are you forced to become J.T., who ultimately got overwhelmed by it all?"

Sutter added that Season 5 will pick up a few weeks after events on the Sons of Anarchy Season 4 finale and that the early episodes will focus on the "ramifications" of Tig accidentally killing Damon Pope's daughter.

"Pope obviously starts out as this very strong antagonist and will remain so for a while. The interesting thing that happens with Pope and Jax is they're forced to get in bed with this guy Nero as a result of their misstep."

Pope will be portrayed by Harold Perrineau and Nero by Jimmy Smits.

For A LOT more from Sutter, read his full SOA interview with TV Guide now - and then return to TV Fanatic this weekend for our rundown of video interview with the cast at Comic-Con.

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.
