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."


is this the last season we will see clay or not? are you guys going to show all the seasons again befor season 5 on tv? i realy love soa i cant enough of it


Awesome show. I still think "The Shield" is still the best piece of television i will ever watch. In the last episode of Season 4 Juice is watching The Shield while he is in lockup, loved the reference. Also the amount of Shield actors in this makes it cool. Much love for SoA from aus!


This is the best of all shows, and the episodes just could not come fast enough.. It is like withdrawl waiting for Season 5.... It is up to those in power to be true to their viewers and keep shows like this coming.(definite renewal of contracts that is for sure)...


I am also a fan of SOA and I am not surprised how good the writing is. Kurt Sutter also wrote The Shield which was also an excellent show. The commercial channels in Australia ruined The Shield by not allowing it to be aired in a regular time slot.I am amused by some of the comments, don't people realise that the show is fiction. The people in SOA are actors even though they do an excellant job, it is not real.


I knew nothing about this show till last week,On vacation i watched the first episode,I WAS HOOKED!!! This is television at its best.I was totally drawn into this wild ride, keep up the amazing work.I'm a fan!!!!Cant wait for season 5


Season 3 was the best season of any show ive ever seen.. and i didnt think anything would come close to the sopranos first five seasons. sons of anarchy is my favorite series of all time.. and i think season 4 is a perfect setup for what we all want to see, which is jax fulfilling his path and taking samcro where only the son of its originator can. to a better place. and i lookforward to the great individual episodestorytelling of the original 3 seasons. SOA rulles. Bring it! It was good to see jax at the end of the season accept who he is as the head of samcro and its gonna make for a badass season 5. and ps! the boys need to start drinking bud again! not miller lite! cowboys drink bud.


Having viewed all 3 seasons of the Sons Of Anarchy, I would say this is truly one of the finest t.v. series around. Can't wait until Season 4 is released later this spring. My only wish is that FX would allow hardcore language on these shows which would make it even more realistic and genuine, like HBO and Showtime. The language is kind of mild compared to shows like The Wire, Deadwood and The Sopranos.


the best serie a have te see
bring the good work done season5 and a hope the more to come about the serie

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.
