"Sons of Anarchy" creator Kurt Sutter has been pulling back the curtain on the show for weeks amid the coronavirus quarantine. For the most part, he's been happy to answer fan questions earnestly, but this week he had a hilarious reply to one person's inquiry.

"Was Jax's ended destined from the beginning or did you ever think of him walking away with the kids or being killed by the club?" a viewer asked.

"My original idea was that at the end of SOA, Jax wakes up in the Strike Team clubhouse, and we reveal the whole series was all Lemonhead’s dream," Sutter joked.

The references are to the '80s soap opera "Dallas" and the show "The Shield," which Sutter worked on previously.

Sutter has answered questions during the quarantine about the show's finale. He was asked by a fan what went into Jax Teller's decision at the end of the series to take his own life.

"I think so many things factored into that fateful decision," Sutter replied. "Tara, Gemma, his father, the club... but mostly it was about ending the lineage of Tellers being associated with the outlaw life. The mayhem had to end with him. He did not want his sons to follow in his path. It's why he told Wendy to tell his boys that he was a monster. A murderer. He never wanted them to romanticize the life the way he did. He wanted his Abel and Thomas to create a new branch in the Teller family tree. An honest, peaceful branch."

He was also asked about the Hamlet quote that appeared on screen after the series finale.

"Doubt thou the stars are fire. Doubt that the sun doth move. Doubt truth to be a liar, but never doubt I love," it read. A fan asked Sutter about the meaning behind the quote and how it relates to the show.

"For me, that quote summed up Hamlet," Sutter responded. "A statement that at face value means one thing, but in its declaration, manifests only more questions."

He also joked that if the finale "hit you over the head any harder with Christian symbolism, the Vatican would've sued me for copyright infringement,"

"I wanted to use it at the end because I felt it allowed people to have their own take away about Jax's life and fate," Sutter continued. "Was it noble? Was it evil? Was he tortured? Or the torturer? For me, the very fact that you're asking the questions you are asking was the point."
