"We sort of fluctuate, where one season the adversary will be in the outlaw world and other seasons it'll be someone from the law enforcement world - and the interesting thing about Donal's character is he sort of falls in the middle," Sutter says. "He's law enforcement, but he's ex-law enforcement...He's probably the most dangerous adversary they've ever had in terms of his access to law enforcement information, yet he doesn't necessarily have to follow all those rules."
Season 6 of "Sons of Anarchy" is sure to be another explosive season. There will likely be a lot of new characters and story lines with the same old "Sons of Anarchy" drama.
