at .

We are just over a week away from the Sons of Anarchy Season 5 premiere.

Titled "Sovereign," the September 11 episode will introduce viewers to a very different SAMCRO, as evidenced by the following set of photos. Jax is at the head of the table. Clay is on Oxygen. Various members are forced to react to their new positions.

Oh, and Harold Perrineau is on board as Damon Pope, the Oakland gangster who has a few Tig-related issues on his mind. He's one of several new characters we'll meet this fall.

Click through the following images now and visit TV Fanatic the nanosecond this premiere ends for my complete review.

Sons of Anarchy Season 5 Episode 1 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.


Tig: Oh come on there's nothing wrong with the occasional skank.
Jax: Time to pull out, I wanna go home.
