The fourth season of the "Sons of Anarchy" ended earlier this week, but the finale didn't wrap up a lot of story lines. SOA could go in several directions at the start of season five, but creator Kurt Sutter says that he has a pretty good idea of where the show is going.
So what didn't happen at the end of Season four? It seems like this whole season has been building toward Clay's death. There are plenty of people who want to put a bullet in him but Sutter will let him live another season.
"It would've been way too easy for Jax to have that reveal about his father that we've been playing with for four seasons now, and (then) have Jax kill Clay," Sutter said. "We get to play that out now with Jax and Clay, and I think that's great turf for potent storytelling. I want to see what that looks like for a season or two."
If you missed the final episode of season four, here's a recap.
The fourth season of "Sons of Anarchy" had its ups and downs, but the explosive moments made it feel like a pretty fast paced season. Season five, on the other hand, could be one long dramatic build.Sutter said:
"My sense next season is that it will be a slower boil. It won't quite be as fast and kinetic as this season was with the cartel and Jax wanting to get out. This season, everyone was sort of out of breath with every episode."
Sutter has always talked about SOA as a modern day version of Hamlet. But will the final episode of Sons have a Shakespearean ending?
"Whether or not they all end up dead in a big puddle of blood at the end of the series is yet to be determined."
