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.

kurt sutter's done a great job of entertaining us with an inciteful look into the biker world which, up until now, has been a closed shop. having sonny barger and david labrava consulting was a brilliant idea with sutter putting it into context. i hope it goes on for another 4 years, and they run it in australia at the same time it runs in the u.s. but probably not. one things for certain, they definately got the treachery right. cheers from Oz.

Are we going to see the guys grow up and drive big V-twins, or are they going to continue driving Dyna's, which are nothing more than sportsters with twin-cams in them? Or have the actors learned enough to ride and are now strong enough to hold up big boy bikes?
