Good, loyal friends are hard to come by. Although Opie was dragged back into the outlaw life that has since cost him his wife and his father Piney, Opie stood by his best friend Jax until the end — even after Jax revealed why he couldn't let Opie kill Clay, who was responsible for Piney's death. Jax is told that the only way to end a beef with a rival gang is to sacrifice a member, and having already lost everything, Opie steps forward to stop Jax from sacrificing himself. "I got this," he says, before being brutally beaten to death with a metal pipe. We hope Opie's tortured soul is now at peace, but we can't help feeling he is goon to soon.
