Sons of Anarchy Season 5: A Journey for Jax

by at . Comments

If you're Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter, it's not too early to start thinking about season five. Or, fortunately for us, to start blogging about it.

Having already said that Opie and Wendy will return to the series this fall, Sutter wrote this week that the upcoming season will focus heavily on Jax and his "journey" as President of SAMCRO. The man must decide what he wants his legacy to be.

"This season will be a pivotal one in the arc of the series," Sutter wrote on his blog. "Not that all the seasons haven't been essential in shaping the mythology, but this season will begin to lay track for how the series ends. In a feature film, season 5 would be the end of act two. Where the hero has been faced with the primary conflict and obstacles and is forced to make a decision that either ends well or not-so-well."

Sutter - who also plays Otto on SOA, of course - adds that the season ahead will slow down the action a bit, referring to it as "deliberate." He writes:

"I'm not sure how to expand upon that other to say that the decisions our hero makes will be less impulsive and more permanent. The stakes will be ratcheted up while the pace will be slowed down. Not that we won't have all the pulpy goodness we have every season (we will still blow shit up), it'll just have a different rhythm."

And we'll no doubt eat up every second of it.

Love thiis show. Cannot wait for season five. Date of episode one season five yet.


I love the show...I only have one complaint. For a biker, why does Jax wear white tennis shoes and not boots? Just curious about that...but if he just wants to wear only tennis shoes, hey, baby bring it!


****I love this show! I can not wait for season 5. I loved The Shield too though! I think Kurt Sutter is absolutely brilliant. Some of the things that happen in the show can have such an impact and really hit home. Like the importance of family, friends, and loyalty..I also really love the part of Gemma Teller, and I love how Katie Sagal plays it, you can tell that it is specifically fits the drama aspect of what Katie wanted to try.
I think that they couldn't have cast this show any better, with the exception of Agent Stall. She was a bad actress. The scene where she is about to die in season three***, I mean she is pleading for her life! Common Give us some real tears! lol.
Other than that though. Great cast, great script, great music, just great!!
Can wait for Season 5!!! McEwen

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.
