Ending an acclaimed television series is no easy task. Showrunners can be vilified (Damon Lindelof), deified (Vince Gilligan), or somewhere in between (Joss Whedon). A series finale can generate controversy for years -- like that ending of "The Sopranos."
So, Kurt Sutter has his work cut out for him as "Sons of Anarchy" winds down after seven seasons on FX. And he isn't totally sure what he plans to do. At the Television Critics Association press tour, he admitted that the end "could all change."
"I've always had a sense of where I wanted it to go, and I come in each season with a blueprint with the big arcs and mile markers. And I've learned over seven seasons the looser I grip that idea the better the seasons are," he told reporters.
"This season isn't any different. I came in with how I wanted the season to end ... but things change. It's always been heading in the same direction, but the way I'm getting there continues to change."
One thing Sutter does know? "We don't fade to black in a diner," he joked.
As long as he explains who was in the outrigger, that's all we care about.
