Sons of Anarchy > Sons of Anarchy Review: The Wrong Choice > Comments Page 5
Seriously?? To all u saying u will not watch soa anymore.. get the freak over it!! As I love soa I think it was brilliance. Noone seen it being opie, yet if u think about it they actually have been killig him off for awhile. And he died protecting his best friend and president!!
I see why he killed him off, Opie was the last thread to a Sons of Anarchy as his Father envisioned. Opie literally put the club First. Brotherhood over self and he did things out of an honor tinged love. As Opie's father Piney was the last True original 9 member who remembered the club as John Teller originally formed it to be. (Chibs is borderline on this in spirit so far in the series). All remaining soa club member have shown themselves to be empty and only about themselves. All have put themselves above any idea of Brotherhood and of no loyalty or faith. Strangely for some to realize, the traitor to many eyes, Otto should be another clear warning to Jax as the almost ghostly reminder of the fate to come to all Sons who follow the path of Clay's vision of the club. He gave his life for the club - pretty much literally, and was betrayed for it by the club and his supposed Brothers.
With Opie gone Jax's descent begins. He is now - for the time being - Clay's son in heart and soul.
Rest in Peace Opie. Moving forward with Jax, Chibs and Tig. Does it get any better than this?
Good connection to The Shield and Lem.
And to those who said it was sudden and wasnt foreshadowed, go watch the the first few episodes again.
By the looks of some of the posts, some you should stick with comedies and procedurals, that way you dont through a hissy fit when a character dies.
Is Sutter just supposed to write the beloved characters out of every jam they encounter? Cop outs arent fun to watch. Important people have to die, it cant just be minor characters and the bad guys.
This vaguely reminds me of The Shield (SPOILER ALERT) Season 5 finale when Lem was killed. People are having the same reactions, threats of not watching the show anymore, not knowing whether to cry or throw up.
I dont see how its that big of a deal that they killed opie there was no other choice he killed himself to save jax and the club it makes perfect sense he had nothing else anyway and to quit watching the show for it is absurd its the best written show on tv and sutter likes to twist things up.
It was so wrong for it to be Opie he was such a faithful member to the club I think Kurt Sutter made a bad choice. i am one fan that has never missed a single show since day one and i own all four seasons. so wrong how Opie's life was taken. I will miss him so much and the show will not be the same without him.
The way the killed off Opie was absolutely horrible and a overall bad decision. They killed off a main character that everyone liked like it was nothing. No epic battle - No obvious huge foreshadowing - they just had him thrown in a ring with people and get decked with a crowbar. Then they proceeded to have Jax be level headed - like he didn't just loose his best friend and potential VP.
Why would they kill off such an important character when they could have killed off a character that we hardly ever see - like the Chibs or better yet - Tig. Tig is literally the most annoying SON. He does irresponsible things that always end up horrible. He killed Donna, He killed Pope's daughter which ended up killing his own daughter and Opie...Jax should have called him to fight in an instance.
Man they really did a number on this one killing opie.Didnt they guy lost his wife and his father.they been killing his character since season 1 Gruesome way of dying and SOOOOOO unfair (THAT PIPE)SHHHHHHHHHHH.
DONE WITH THE SHOW.
OMG...I was torn between crying like a baby and throwing up watching the scene. Yes it does suck that it was Opie (I really liked him in the series) but it was logical to fuel a fire in Jax. I have read alot of posts where ppl state they will not watch the show again...REALLY?...how many shows/soap operas/etc have we watched in the past years where a main character is killed off? Sutter is a brilliant writer in some aspects...what I dont like is where he is taking the Gemma storyline. Kate is an excellent actress and deserves a better storyline. Tara is turning into the person you love to hate. One writer stated she would pass a drug test: did he miss the scene with Tara smoking a joint and her baby crying in the background as she turned off the baby moniter and just sat there?
The Wrong Choice?
Yes. Killing Opie was completely the wrong choice. Much as I love Tiggs, and the retribution he will surely bring will be impressive, Opie was 'the viewer' - he was us. He was part of the gang - but still had his feet in reality. Bad, bad decision.
Like many others, I cannot see how this makes any sense from either a storyline or a business point of view.
It's as if the writers of the show are trying to force Jax to become Clay. But to what end? It's starting to look like a repetitive cycle that will bring nothing new to the table. If Jax turns into Clay - or worse, into Pope - then I see season 5 being the final season. There is simply no conceivable point to making the 'hero' (jax, so to speak) of the club simply turn into the 'villain' (Clay) that he finally defeated.
Not sure if I can stomach the rest of the season with the way things are going now. Was good while it lasted but I honestly don't see a bright future for this show. I just wish writers and producers would finally grasp that it is stupid decisions - much like this one - that turn great shows into friday night garbage that will get cancelled soon.
Much like the final play of the green bay v seattle game... this was an absolutely disgraceful and horrible
I want Ope back.....this is bs..I can't watch. Ope and Jax had a relationship that shouldve been allowed to repair and grow...I hate that he was killed off.. HATE this ;o(
KILLING OFF OPIE WAS THE WORST DECISION KURT SUTTER HAS MADE IN THE SERIES!!!! IN MY EYES THIS IS THE BEST SERIES EVER TO BE ON TV, BUT KILLING OPIE REALLY TOOK IT DOWN A NOTCH! I WILL CONTINUE TO WATCH, BUT OPIE WAS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS TO WATCH
Man this was to much!!!!! OPIE was the 2nd reason
I watched this show I loved OPIE and the show
Won't b the same without him!!!! Long live
OPIE!!!! Hope to see u on another show real
Unless I see a funeral.. I dont think he is dead. I really liked the character of Opie.. he gives stability to Jax.
I have watched SOA since day one, and I have loved it, but this, what they did tonight, to Opie, was awful, I just don't know if I can watch the show anymore, the producers have no feelings for the fans at all that I can see, they make you really like a character and then they kill them off, just like that, for ratings or whatever their strategy is, I hope they find out this time that killing "opie" off was absolutely "the wrong choice" for them to make, and they may very well look back and see this was the beginning of the end for this previously wonderful series.
Omg. I did not see that coming!! I can't believe they would kill off one of the best characters. I don't want to watch this anymore!!
Killing Opie was a wrong move. He was by far the best of the secondary characters, that is anyone not in the Teller-Marrow family, but this is not my show so we viewers move on from here.
I will say this. If this arc does not end with Pope on his knees, surrounded by his dead lackeys and the remaining kingdom, with Jax's gun to his head I will be gravely disappointed. Opie was the closest Jax had to a real brother. He sacrificed himself for Jax's sake and he deserves an epic, world shattering, game changing retribution.
With SOA chapters all over the world, not to mention the positive relationship with the Mayans and The Grim Bastards, there is no reason that SAMCRO has to remain the little guys in this mix. Why not call in reinforcements, start the slow destruction of Pope's organization and take all the power, not just control of the MC. If you are going make Jax a king, as the lose connection to the Hamlet story line would indicate, then make him THE King. If you still want hi
shoulda drug it out & outed juice as the a rat & killed him off. jax coulda negotiated it, killing opie was stupid. There were plenty of other ways to screw with jax or the series. watched sons since day one, opie was always so quiet yet played a big role. seemed like they were building up to something for opie... then they kill him. done with this show. thanks for all previous episodes
Why did they kill Opie?????? I cannot believe they did that. I am considering boycotting this show for the rest of the season, and I know I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE!!!!!!!!!! What is this show coming too?????? Its gonna be crap now. Take the babies. Leave Opie alone!!!!!!!!!!! Their is a whole block here that is not gonna watch. If Days of Our Lives can kill people off and bring them back Sons can bring Opie back. Have Tara for all we care. She poppin pills already.
They should have killed off the irish guy. Hes about worthless.
Why Opie???? He was definitely a fan favorite! So disappointed and sad :( the show wont be the same and I don't care to watch.
I really do not think I can watch the show now. I understand everyone's points but Opie should of have been saved. I don't think I can't can watch anymore.
