The New Sons of Anarchy Promo Is Full of Motorcycles, Metaphor (VIDEO)

FX's Sons of Anarchy finished Season 4 with plenty of leftover momentum for Season 5. SAMCRO shuffled up its officers, Oakland gangster Damon Pope is pretty damn pissed at Tig, and Clay somehow managed to survive even though everyone on the planet wanted him dead. Yep, it's going to be really rough road ahead.

And that seems to be the point of this gorgeous promo for SoA's fifth season, a washed-out, metaphor-filled spot that indicates Jax might need to keep his training wheels on a little longer as president of the MC.

Whoops! Riding your bike off a bridge to certain death is kind of the exact opposite thing a motorcycle club wants from its new leader. So what does the imagery mean? Is he getting JT'd and being set up for an "accident" by Clay? Is Gemma telling him not to cross that bridge and dig up the truth about his father? Why does the rest of the club seem unconcerned that Jax's big fight is now with gravity? Do they think he's steering them in the wrong direction? And why doesn't that bridge have proper guard rails? California really IS bankrupt.


Sons of Anarchy returns for Season 5 in September on FX.

Of course Clay is going to try and kill him just like he did with J.T. but that of course risks revealing his involvement in John's death to the rest of the MC and even Clay couldn't be that stupid...Could he?

Probably was a dream...

Writers seem to rely on that a lot lately.

Oh my God! I am so excited for this season. Assuming that this promo isn't in the literal sense, I am so eager to finding out what the club is going to do with Clay. I really thought that Jax was going to kill him in the end of the last season...

That's a nice promo. I don't know why but it has this dream-like feel to it... I wonder if it is something that is actually gonna happen or it's a character's dream, or just like Tim said, a metaphor. I can't wait!

I don't know how much to put in to this promo, but Bobby is out, and Opie is driving behind Jax... Maybe he does decide to become Jax's VP...

S4 was so great, then the ending happened. SoA is no GoT and in the end it was too afraid to kill such an important character off.

Oh boy. I completely forgot what happened in Season 4. Remember it being very good (except for that last add-ed on episode).

They have a lot of credibility to make up from their season finale.
