KURT SUTTER: There’s not a lot of changes yet because it’s only about three to four weeks after the end of Season 4. Jax is definitely at the head of the table. All the things that were in play last season are in play, such as the deal with the cartel. Clay (Ron Perlman) is out of the hospital. That’s one of the reasons why we skipped a little bit of time. I didn’t want to play hospital scenes with Clay, so Clay is out of the hospital. We have the ongoing threat of Damon Pope, who we introduced in the finale last year, and he’s being played by Harold Perrineau. He’s set up as more of a traditional antagonist, in the beginning of the season, and I think that will turn on its head, a little bit. This season is really about seeing Jax at the head of that table. What kind of leader will he become? I like the idea of seeing a President, as we see more often than not, inherit the mess of the previous President. How does he deal with that? And can you be the head of an outlaw organization and not become Clay? Is that possible? Or, if you don’t become Clay, are you perceived as weak and end up like John Teller? It’s really about the challenges that are presented to Jax, and what kind of leader he’ll become.
