Sutter explained that seasons 6 and 7 of the show is entering the "endgame" phase.
Opie's ghost will play a part in at least the first half of season 6. Jax wants to do right by his memory by heading SAMCRO. Sutter explained that Opie will be living in Jax, "motivating him to … not necessarily go rogue, but perhaps pushing him down this path where he may be leaping before he looks."
As for Clay, he's used to being in a position of power. Sutter said in season 6, Clay will feel increasingly isolated and that could be more dangerous than anything since he "exiled" from a world he knew. Sutter said the ending of "Sons of Anarchy" could mean "redemption" for Clay.
Sutter touched on Clay's position now.
“I think, for me, it’s the most honest and real we’ve ever seen Clay," Sutter said. "I think it’s truly more who he is as a man than anything else we’ve seen to date.”
All in all, "Sons of Anarchy" will have a turbulent, violent ending when the series wraps. Sutter summed it up by saying it will end with a "pool of blood."
Here's what Sutter said about the "Sons of Anarchy" ending:
"You know, here’s how I describe all this: It’s a heavy world, it’s a dark world but as heavy and violent as it is, I like to think that ultimately there is some sense of hope. So that it’s sad and heavy, but there is always some sense of hope.
"Will it be a happy ending? No, but I do think that there will be something hopeful about the way it ends."
The series creator has a vision for the ending of "Sons of Anarchy," but isn't quite sure how to get there with the storylines yet.
