Depending on how long they drag things out, and assuming there is another season pending,
I can see Jax at some point finding out about Clay's shooting. Next season, instead of leaving, he stays and uses that information to make Clay get the club back in line with what his dad envisioned - cutting ties with the cartel, etc. He would essentially have control over the club without taking the President's chair.
Then we would have the SOA battling the cartel instead of working with them - could be fun.
Just something my tired mind thought up...
Interesting, I hadn't thought of that scenario. Sounds bad ass too though....lol.
