Clay's Bleak Future After 'Sons of Anarchy' Season 4 Finale Discussed

December 07, 2011 09:19:41 GMT


Clay could be considered lucky to still be alive after all the sins he's done throughout this season of "Sons of Anarchy". Defending his decision not to kill off the former president of SAMCRO who was shot in last week's episode, creator Kurt Sutter said, "I just think there's more story to play out now that Jax has this information [about Clay]. [Killing him] just seemed like a waste to me."

Despite escaping death, Clay is not completely unscathed. In Sutter's words, "for someone like Clay to be reduced to a guy who is wounded and weakened... is almost like a fate worse than death." He added, "It's the humiliation of it all. It's like he has literally been f***ing neutered. ... For a guy as hard and as alpha as Clay, that it is worse than if [Jax] just f***ing slit his throat."
