Re: Sons of Anarchy: Season 5 (Discussion Thread, SPOILERS)
Dont get me wrong, I'm not happy with them killing off Opie.
But honestly what more could he have done? He already lost the two most important people in his life (minus the kids) and even though he has his children half of their lives he was in prison and they only became close after Donna's death. There was always a distance between him and the two kids and he knew with the club always being a part of him he'd never be that great father, hence why he gave them to Lyla.
And for those saying he had unfinished business with Clay, the dude had his climax at the end of last season...he shot Clay and then the two came to terms with it in the last episode.
Yes Opie was a great character and badass, but think about it. Guy lost his family, cant even connect with his owns kids, had his wife leave him and the club he's known and been a part of his whole life betrayed him after he went to jail for it.
Chances are bad shit would've kept happening to Op and the story would've been him just being conflicted of whether or not he would rejoin the club or not...which would be boring. It was better this way.
In the end Sutter got what he wanted....all you guys talking about it.
