Sons of Anarchy > Sons of Anarchy Review: The Wrong Choice > Comments Page 4
You are not alone, I'm SOOOOOO PISSED they killed Opie. He was the reason I was watching, how dare they kill the best person on the show. While I was watching I was yelling out "No No not my Opie" I was in shock for like 5 mins, it was so raw how they took him out. So what if Chibs was the logical choice they should have took him out. Opie need to kill Clay for all of the things he did to his family and now we will never see Opie get justice. I'm only going to watch so I can see Jax get revenge for his death, then I'm done. I know that sounds bad and I'm sure that was a risk they were willing to take losing viewers. R.I.P Opie, The best Son there was :)
Sutters writing always surprises me..that's what I love..the unexpected..there have been many times my husband and I were like whoa didn't see that coming...or Holy Sh*T I didn't expect that...that's what is so great about this show...As for Gemma...I think Sutter lets his real life interfear with his writing for the character...she needs to come down off her high horse and Tara needs to take her down...she needs to see her ways are not always the best ways.
I'm sorry but I'm off SOA - too much brutality and deprivation of human life. The burning of Tig's daughter while making him watch made me sick. then last night the beating of Opie was pretty much the last straw. There is too much of this in real life. Also, I agree Gemma's role is becoming commical and predictable. I really enjoyed the first 4 seasons but not this one. I'm done.
If Opie had to die then before the season is over I would love to see a Godfather type payback. Jax gets his revenge on everyone and Pope and the Niners get devastated. That would be the only proper way to end this season.
I am disappointed. Once you start killing off main characters...the show dives. Honestly it has gotten completely drama based and not worth watching. Since the untimely death of Opie, I believe this will be my last episode I watch. Bummer too, First season was great....sucked from there.
i thought it sucked that they killed opie. he was one of my favorite characters. the writing on this show has really gotten ridiculous. clay beats the piss out of gemma. she wanted jax to kill him, she leaves him and takes up with this pimp and now i'm supposed to believe that she would fly onto a rage and beat up a hooker that just had sex with him? is that believable? in real life she wouldn't give a crap that he had sex with a hooker.
Very hard to watch but if you have watched every single episode like I have it makes sense. Opie has not been the same since Donna died. He left to be with his family. He choice the way he wanted to go. I will miss Opie and it will definitely be different without him but, Tig, Chibs and Jax have a lot of "baggage" left in the show to just kill them off. I definitely think it will eventually turn around to show Jax that Gemma even though she is his mother is to blame for everything that has happened. I loved the part where Tara told Wendy "I am a surgeon and your a ex junky, biker, whore!" That is exactly what needed to be said by Tara. There is one thing I think the writers should do is. Even though Tara is married to Jax now, she is still a doctor and her character should dress at the hospital like a doctor not a biker chick. Sorry that part gets to me every time. Great writing Kurt I will watch till the final show.
First off a moment of silence for Opie Winston.
Now, isn't it ironic that Clay still wound up getting Opie killed? It's like no matter what he did he couldn't seem to stop crapping on Opie's life because even without trying he was still somewhat the reason Opie died. If he had never convinced Opie to go back to SAMCRO he wouldn't have died. But oh well, that's Kurt Sutter.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE TARA!! She's becoming more like Gemma but smarter. When she told Wendy off I was squealing but when she told off Gemma I was like "Oh my gosh I'm in love!" Her line about having her husband kill Gemma was amazing and a cold hard slap to manipulative Gemma's face.
Also: I'm still waiting on Juice to be discovered as a rat (I don't like him).
I want to see why the NOMADS stole those documents from that safe.
And a special thanks to Kurt Sutter for giving me naked back shots of Charlie Hunnam and Ryan Hurst, it was enjoyable.
The episode Laying pipe made me cry!!!! That has'nt happened since Stringer was killed off The Wire. It was a stroke of genius and very ballsy move on Mr Sutter's behalf. Can't wait for next episode!!!!!!!
Yes, it is just a TV show but people tend to gravitate toward characters that they feel best represents their own self image. Opie was like us, the loyal fans of the show, he always put the club first; brotherhood before betrayal and unfortunately death before dishonor. I, like every other human on the planet, have my own qualms with the writing from time to time, but the people who are very upset and talking about boycotts and illness, because of this last episode, are condemning the writing while simultaneously contradicting themselves by showing their emotions. That's what good writing does; it sucks you in and makes you empathize and sympathize with fictional char
I cried honestly, loove the show, but i was really hopin tig was gettin it,he has had his hands in some dirty deals and gets away with it... all opies done was stand by jax through everything.. like someone said, its just a show, but man poor opie! and his mama shes gonna beat someone down for sure!
Why!!!#!!!!#!!!!SOA!!!!!!!! Opie deserved better! He
will be Missed! I hope he didnt die in vain. I hope someone make Clay pay for the deaths of his lost loved ones I Really wanted him to be the one to take Clay out!!!! All of this is his fault after all.
I would have rather seen Opie die later in the series because they are all going to die anyway. In true Kurt fashion, he is going to shock us all. Many forget that a lot of the inspiration for this show was for his wife! My prediction is that gemma is the last one standing. Her crimes regarding Jax's father's death will lead to everyone dying, including Jax and the kids. That will be the real tragedy behind it all. Kurt is building up everyone else to increase the tragedy, but they all die in the end. Opie smiled because, as Jax foreshadowed, he got to choose his way out. Maybe not the way that he thought that he would go, but in the end, he went out with his boots on and looked finally at peace.
They are all going to suffer and die. It's NOT because of Clay, as we all want to think, but because of Gemma, because she set it all in motion decades ago...
Kurt is an evil genius!!!
i thought killing off opie was brilliant. don't get me wrong - opie was my favorite character and he will be missed, but i love that the show is not afraid to kill of a lead character and shock its viewers. i thought it had actually become boring and redundant - it was constantly clay getting away with all his transgretions, gemme and tara at odds, the club fighting with all the other gangs... i was ready to quit watching, but kurt sutter brought back some of what made me love this show the first 2 seasons!!
I hate that they killed off Opie. It was difficult to watch. I'm still in denial (yeah I know it's just TV but still).
People who are saying they will never watch the show again because they killed off Opie, a main character, obviously have never watched any British TV drama. You never know when a main character is going to go and are always holding your breath during any type of altercation. They kill off main characters ALL the time. Also, you could see that it was going to be Opie, it was pretty much telegraphed in ahead of time if you paid attention. As for them killing off Chibs, he still has the Irish connection and Tig still hasn't gone to a dark enough place. It had to be Opie to give Jax the extra 'push' he needed.
Jumping the shark. Poor story line: Pope shows up at the jail; fight-club in jail; no one going to arrest guards? Come on, was this written by a 13 year old? Sure, someone might get killed in prison, but the whole thing would not be so public.
Best Sons season yet. I was really surprised that they got rid of Opie. But it will be a catalyst for Jax's moves for the rest of the season. Gemma is out of control. I just wish that the Emmy's would recognize this show.
You people claiming you won't watch anymore are insane! It's sad he's gone, but Opie died for his club and even told his porn star wife (Lyla?) That he didn't love anything anymore. It made sense. It sucks he's gone, but it made sense. Now I can't wait to see how Jax and the club answer back.
I was devasted by last nights show. I knew someone was going to die, but I didn't think it would be Opie. I believe Tig is going to get his in the end, he has too. Opie was killed all because of the mess he (Tig) created.
I agree with the other reader about Juice. His secret will finally be revealed before long, and he will have to be delt with. At this point, Jax is showing NO MERCY! I just knew he was the one, but it's a little too soon.
Opie will be missed and I think his death is going to bring out a really dark side of Jax. I can't wait to see where this season takes us.
RIP Opie.........we love you!
When anyone says Opie had nothing left to live for so it makes sense, what about his two young children? Like Jax, Opie also made a big mistake. Opie was sick of the club, sick of the life so why not take your children and get out, start a new life for them? Opie had the chance to get out without strings. By leaving, Opie could have sent a more powerful message to Jax.
Yeah, it's a show, Ryan is alive and well. However, this is the first time ever watching SOA that I burst into tears, that I couldn't watch the second showing. I will never forget Opie, thank you Ryan Hurst.
Kurt we need some love on the show murder can't be all the time..
I think killing Ope was a colossal mistake!!! I am going to watch to see where Sutter goes with this, but I don't think he can dig out -- I think the show is done.
Didn't like the way he was killed off not dramatic enough. kurt should've killed that irish guy with the scar. not sure what his pourpose is, i never see him doing anything.
