4) Goodbye Opie
Season 5, Episode 3 named ‘Laying pipe’ literally had the ‘pipe’ playing an important role. In this episode, we see Jax convincing Opie to re-join the club even though he had spent five years in prison because of the club. Subsequently, Jax, Opie and Tig are imprisoned and in the prison Damon Pope challenges them for a duel against his men. Opie takes up the challenge and loses his life when a pipe is dug into his skull. A shocker of a death…not just the way he dies but also because he was one of the most affable characters on the show.
