Conrad's one saving Grace was his love for his children, or so we thought. But when pushed to his limits, Conrad verbally tore Charlotte to shreds. It was a horrible moment and we don't doubt that he meant every word.
We don't doubt Jax loves his boys but his actions say otherwise. Time and time again he chooses his club and a life of violence over his family. In the end, staying in Charming got his sons' mother killed.
We don't know David Clarke's story yet, but what father lets his daughter grow up in a correctional institution believing her father was a terrorist. Emily is a twisted soul but her father helped make her that way.
Now that James is gone we worry for that baby because left to his own devices Cyrus can be a power hungry monster. He even came close to murdering his own husband and let a bomb go off during a funeral service. That doesn't exactly scream father of the year.
He's burned countless cities in the hunt for his children and his violent need for power and control led to an inter-species war that's lasted centuries. When you're talking long-term destruction, Mikael's reign of terror over his kids is hard to beat.
Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
