Paul Teutul posted a picture of himself with his father and brother Mike all posing in front of the Teutel bike that junior and senior built during season 4, indicating that the final episode will involve a reunion of sorts. Note: Season 4 dropped the Sr. vs. Jr. subtitle and returned to the original American Chopper title.
After such a big battle, you'd think the show would be done. But it's back, in this season premiere of Senior vs. Junior. Senior is well-rooted for battle, but Junior plans on destroying his dad's business regardless; by building a rival shop just around the corner. Of course Mikey will be there along with an old friend Vinnie.
