I can’t believe Opie is gone gonna miss him… His poor children are gonna be devastated. When that seen with Opie getting beaten like that came on I balled my eyes out I have never cried like that ever during a movie or t.v series but this series seems so real you get right into it and get to no and love each and every character in some way… There’s exceptions but Opie was one of my favorite sad to see him go love ya Opie…. R.I.P

Posted by Angie on September 26th, 2012

RIP Opie. So devastated you are gone!!! I’m STILL in shock! It shouldn’t of been you, Tig’s loose cannon self started dis b.s. & you paid tha price – NOT FAIR! Dis wuz finally tha time fo you & Jax!!!!

Sons is gonna suck without op and I probably want watch it as much anymore it’s supposed to be about op. And jax. I’m sick and I turned my TVs off after that happened. It would be awesome if he survived and is in icu and comes back to the show….hint hint to the producers…. I mean really wtf…

Posted by heatherinia on September 26th, 2012

Ryan has always given such unbelievable performance that it has allowed us as fans to feel as if he is part of our family. I cried and was disbelief for the rest of the night. I will miss Opie but take some satisfaction he went out true to who he has always been….a loyal brother and protector.

Posted by “Dutch” on September 26th, 2012

My hart is crying , í’ve lost my favorit Son the most honorable of all R.I.P. brother you will be missed in the show . i know it’s tv but it feels like one of my best friends has been ripped away . may you rest in peace Harry”Opie”Winston and to Ryan Hurst you’re one of the best SOA actors there was so my compliments to you and what yoú have done for us SOA-Fans

Posted by Tony Kerbaugh on September 26th, 2012

The show will definatly not be the same without Opie, I’m curious how Jax is going to deal with everything now that he doesn’t. Opie there to cover his back. RIP Opie you will be missed.

Posted by Sara on September 26th, 2012

Rip opie. Truly missed but never forgotten!! The show won’t be the same with out! Made me cry to see you killed off!! :( <3

Posted by Kait Brannen on September 26th, 2012

It was so hard to watch you die Opie! I’m afraid that big part of Jax died with you. The club won’t be the same without you. RIP Opie.

Posted by Monique on September 26th, 2012

Kurt Sutter y in the FUCK would u kill Opie out of show. What were u thinking!

Posted by lori on September 26th, 2012

the look in his eyes when he looked back at jax and said I’ve got this … not be forgotten – that deserves an emmy nod if i ever saw one.
So disappointed in this storyline development. Opie was a key character and this will leave a gaping hole in the story. Perhaps Mr. Sutter has gone too far in reaching for shocking drama in each episode … i think this was a mistake.

Posted by Albert Pride on September 26th, 2012

For the avid viewer of TV drama, there are moments in time that just leave you in a state of disbelief shock & profound, genuine sorrow. “Opie’s” final scene in SOA was one of them. I hadn’t been a fan of this show for very long, but I’m a “must see” fan from now on, and the character of “Opie” was the most immediate and endearing for me because of his unconditional loyalty and friendship. I have a coworker-friend that is also a fan of this series, & I’ve told him before how much he reminded me of this character. Seeing “Opie” get slaughtered like that was like watching my good friend on the recieving end of that attack, I litterally anguished in front of the TV screen, can’t remember the last time I cringed like that watching a television show. The sincere and passionate conveyances here for the remarkable work of Mr. Hurst on this series speaks huge volumes for his acting prowess & many of them are echoes of my sentiments as well.

Posted by Jo-Jo Madden on September 26th, 2012

You will forever be in our hearts Opie. R.I.P Ride in Paradise. Much love.

Posted by Deborah on September 26th, 2012

RIP OPIE!!! I feel like I lost a part of my family! Ryan is such an amazing actor, watching that scene and watching hi w/ Charlie broke my heart!! I bawled like a baby!!! I can not express in words how much I love every actor and character on this show!!! This show is genius, pissed about opie but still best show on television!!!

Posted by Eric on September 26th, 2012

That was a shocker. I was hoping it was going to be Clay, since he is the main reason for all this. Yes, Tig tried to run over the popes daughter. But it still goes back to Clay. Death to Clay. Revenge Opies death.

Posted by Maria C. on September 26th, 2012

I am also saddend by Opie’s death, but got to give kudos where it belongs…Kurt Sutter, you are one sick, twisted, overly talented mother fucker!

Posted by Cassy on September 26th, 2012

You will forever be loved and never forgotten. RIP Opie.

Posted by Mark Osborne Herbert on September 26th, 2012

I am sorry that Opie went out that way. He had more honor then most. He reminded me of the kind of person I would always want as a brother and a friend. It was real pain I felt tonight. I don’t know what Ryan feels about all this. He is an actor and a professional playing a role and he saw that role all the way through brilliantly. I know all these characters will probably end badly. That is the life of an outlaw. I hope he still has something to do with the show (direct or write for instance). I liked him before he was Opie. So I hope to see what is next for him and whatever new vista is coming. For me, I will never forget this character. I will mourn him just as I have for other great characters. This is the way fiction (good fiction) is.

Posted by Rixon McQueen on September 26th, 2012

i SOBBED and screamed….

i wanted to bang my tv the way jax and chibs banged the window

i was still crying even after the credits had gone by

i laid down and just CRIED ˘︵˘

it may be just a tv show but when u have EPIC writers like Kurt Sutter you cannot help but become emotionally attached to characters

they become a part of art that touches your soul

and when they fictionally die…..it stings

Posted by Karla on September 26th, 2012

Please say this was just a nightmare someone had. This show has a way of making you feel like you’re a part of it. It feels so real. It feels like a family member died. Worse than when Marissa got killed off of the OC. Please bring Opie back.

Posted by Genieca on September 26th, 2012

You took my heart with you. It hurt more that you, my on screen boyfriend died compared to my boyfriend in real life.

Posted by Klusman on September 26th, 2012

Opie was deffiantly not who I thought should go I mean now his kids have no mom and dad pretty sh*tty if you ask me. I love Jax but Opie was an awesome brother to him and stood by him through everything! Love you Opie :(

Posted by Donna Merwin on September 26th, 2012

Opie you will be missed alot. You and Jax was the whole show. I didn’t like the way they made you die. You’re a true friend and brother and no one else in the club would do what you did. Miss you. oxox

Posted by Shane on September 26th, 2012

Dammit man! Why is it that all of the characters Ryan Hurst plays never get to finish on top! I was bummed in Remmber the Titans and now I’m bummed with Sons! Guy can’t catch a break! It’s getting interesting Kurt Sutter!

Posted by All BoBbers Rule on September 26th, 2012

Opie, May the lord be with you on your journies through heaven. Now you know peace & can be with your lost loved ones. Your children will miss you, now no mom & no dad.

Posted by Cindy L on September 26th, 2012

Wow! Ryan Hurst: AWESOME acting. I feel like a member of my family was beaten in that box. This is terrible because it was Opie and Jax’s time to shine. I can already see the future changes in Jax. Tig and Clay’s days HAVE to be numbered now. Ryan: You will be missed. You made Opie who he was: GREATNESS. Best of luck in your future endeavors.

Posted by Tracy on September 26th, 2012

I was in complete shock that Opie was killed off, he and Jax are my fav’s. I have to give it to him, he did an AWESOME job taking that role. Love his character and love the show!! I can’t wait to see what the future holds. Now that his character is gone, what will he do now?

Posted by Ashley on September 26th, 2012

Opie you made this show, you and Jax! it won’t be the same without you on the show anymore, sadly you will be missed by not soon forgotten!

Posted by aisling martinez on September 26th, 2012

i have been watching this show since day one, and i loved the brotherly love between jackson and opie. They made the show part of what made it so great to watch. I wish it could have been different but opie hasnt been the same since donna died and with piney’s death he just got worse. i think he left that world protecting his brother because really jax was all he had left. he loved his kids but with out his wife and his dad and his “brother” opie had no one left. i cried when it happened and i will watch the first 4 seasons just to see him..
OPIE WINSTON you will be missed..

Rip Opie


Posted by bonny on September 26th, 2012

omg i am and still blowing away after lastnite S.O.N. I think Tig”s should of been the one who dead not opie he has already lost his wife then his father now his poor children without both parents I think the show made a big mistake R.I.P Opie sweetie:))

Posted by jimmy on September 26th, 2012

man opie was arguably the most popular character on the show certainly my favourite very deep, complex wounded character who ryan hurst played so well .. his death will leave a big scar on the show .. but you gotta have respect for kurt sutter because this was a very very ballsy gutsy move.. he knows how emotionally invested we got into opie and to take him out in the way he did wow.. the jax we are used to is dead now we will see now a very cold hard jax which we got a taste of when he was talking to pope about tig after opie died …

Posted by Leanne K. on September 26th, 2012

I feel like I lost a friend when Sons aired last night…. I know that a part of Opie died when Donna was murdered, but I always thought he’d stick it out for his kids. So sad to see him leave this show, and in such a heart-wrenching and shocking way. Only the good die young…. RIP Opie.

Posted by Amanda Absher on September 26th, 2012

Opie was an amazing character!!! I wonder why Sutter felt the need to kill him off. Maybe Opies personal life came into play and he had to make a quick exit out of the show. Sons of Anarchy is still and ill always be awesome!! “Laying Pipe” episode was epic! RIP Opie Winston

Posted by Jennifer on September 26th, 2012

SO sad to see Opie die. Heartbreaking! I was crying like a baby. Amazing acting. Amazing show! Still cannot believe Oppie is gone. SO SAD.

Posted by Bogga on September 27th, 2012

WOW!!! Kurt Sutter you are a genius. I shed a small tear with the loss of Opie but this is the best TV show I have ever seen. I look forward to the next episodes to watch how Jax and the SONS react.

Posted by Don compy on September 27th, 2012

Rip opie true soldier to end brother

Posted by Lori on September 27th, 2012

I cried like a baby and had to turn my head when they started beating him…He was my favorite and has been since Donna was killed. RIP Opie but I still have hope that he will come back when least expected.

Disappointed in the storyline!!! Opie deserved a break! Lost his wife, his dad, then this….. REALLY. Not watching anymore.

Posted by christian on September 27th, 2012

You will forever be missed jaxs and you were real family and you should have never gone out this way, but I guess after this the show must get more intense

Posted by Ken on September 27th, 2012

I can’t believe Sutter killed off Opie!!!! Sutter you idiot Opie being on there made the damn show you moron!!!!!

Posted by Rhonda on September 27th, 2012

Love the show and I always have. What is amazing to me is how we sit in front of our tv’s every week to watch our favorite shows and we become part of the story. We get wrapped up in the stories and the emotions of the characters . That is what a great writer does . He makes us feel all the emotions, love , hate , anger , sadness, bitterness and revenge. Every week I walk away feeling something different. Last night I cried, I was angry , I was confused , but most of all I wanted revenge. I think because of the writer and the outstanding performance by Ryan Hurst this is my most favorite tv show episode of all time. Not because Opie died ( because he was my favorite) but because I felt like I was there. Ryan Hurst , I have been a fan of yours throughout your career and I will stay tuned in whatever becomes of you my friend. Good Luck in all you do , you are an Outstanding actor!

Posted by justin on September 27th, 2012

Opie was my favorite character for his toughness and nobility and now he is gone but not forgottennn..since I’ve watched the last episode I have een looking all over google to find a wallpaper of opie to remember him buy..RIP OPIE!!!

Posted by Timberwolf0227 on September 27th, 2012

If Opie had to go this episode couldnt have been written any better. The symbolism and raw emotion invoked in this episode proved once again what a good actor Ryan Durst is, as well as the creative genius Sutter and company are. We were all reminded we are not watching a children’s fairy tale sitcom. Kurt Sutter redeemed himself against the critics who called last season soft. However, I wish Ryan was given more time as his character was a fresh breathe every time he had show time. I feel writing Ryan Durst off the show was premature as his character had more to give and was owed a lot. Opie was the epitome of the f’ing cool calculated badass biker dude we all came to love. You just wanted to know what he would do next as he was so unpredictable. However, Opie never came off like he was batshit nuts like Tig is. It’s heartbreaking and a real shame to end his character now. He was owed restitution from Jax and the club and not because of his brutal death. We know Jax will avenge Opie’s death, but Opie should have at least been given the opportunity to have Jax and the club prove their loyalty to him while he was alive. RIP Opie it won’t be the same without you

Posted by Cindy on September 27th, 2012

There are no words to describe how sad I feel about Ope ‘s death. I truly cried and screamed like a baby when they were killing him. I absolutely thought I was going to die myself. Poor Ope. I will miss you brother.

Posted by Wolf’Charmin on September 27th, 2012

I was blown away last night, a cruddy way to go, but with such honor and guts.
I felt the back of my head explode when they hit Opie with that pipe. His death felt like one of brothers died.
Tig messed up big time… and there will be hell to pay…. There was no way out for Jax and the decision, Opie did the Honorable thing and took care of his Brother not just mc brother but spiritual, he took care of SAMCRO, and I can not wait til they off Clay. And look forward to watching Tig pay. and the guard pay and pope pay. NO ONE screws SAMCRO.

Posted by Wolf’Charmin on September 27th, 2012

btw I think this ripped the heart out of Jax and will make him ruthless since Opie was his check and balance.

Posted by lilvampyandlastawar on September 27th, 2012

R.I.P. opie you will be well missed . SOA wont be the same with out you .

Posted by DanInRealLife on September 27th, 2012

I’m a grown man with a family but I sobbed like a child. I tried to keep myself from crying and that just made it worse. I sobbed for 20 minutes. I couldn’t believe it! It hurt so much. Haven’t felt this was since Tony kill Christopher!

Posted by TMRone on September 27th, 2012

I thought I was the only one who felt the way you all do. I really felt like I lost a friend or family member. Crazy! this is the best series I have ever watched

Opie will be missed. Truly the best character on SOA

Posted by Ryan on September 27th, 2012

Opie will forever be the MAN. His loyalty and dedication to Jax will never be matched. It is so crazy how a fictional character can mean SO much to everyone. Great job Ryan Hurst, you are an incredible actor who made so many people love your character to the point that tears where shed to see you go. Like many other fans I vowed against ever watching another episode after Opie’s death. However, after 2 days of sorrow (over a fictional character) I do believe I will continue to watch the show for one reason, REVENGE. Opie’s death can not be like any other before him, where a simple funeral is held and that is the last we hear. Opie needs to live on in EVERY episode, much like J.T. Teller’s memory.

Posted by Robzillaa on September 27th, 2012

Im a grown man who has watched many gripping dramas and action series over the years.. Never have I cried like I did when I realized Opie was going to die..i bawled like a baby and Ryan flat out DESERVES an Emmy for his role in the show. Opie went through so much for the club and still stood up for Jax to protect him in jail and then gave up his life for the club.. So sad, two days later I am tearing up while typing this.

Posted by KWM on September 27th, 2012

Well, all I can say is wow. This episode was one of the more powerful ones in the SOA catalog. I’m still in a kind of shock about Op being bludgeoned to death. Opie was the tough and silent type, dangerous and cautious all rolled into one. He will be missed as Jax’ top soldier, loyal and true to Jax. Bobby may be a great VP to Jax and Chibs a trusted Sgt at Arms, but they could not hold a candle to Opie’s loyalty and protection. In retrospect, to me I think the line in the last episode that he didn’t love anything anymore made him the choice and then when Jax started spilling all the beans about Galindo(sp?) and why Piney died…I knew he was. Regards to Ryan Hurst, excellent work in this series. I know you’ve been doing some production and direction with FX, you would do well to shadow Mr. Sutter. On a lighter note, I think there are two Harleys for sale at Teller-Morrow Garage.

Posted by Im done! on September 27th, 2012

F you FX, I’m done with your series, I hope your ratings go to shit, F you so much you POS’

Posted by JohnMeshkov on September 27th, 2012

I can only say that this was the MOST RETARDED move by a director who’s known for his intelligence, that I have ever seen in TV series.
I’m goiing to stop watching since my favorite character has been removed from the scene.

Posted by Pissed on September 27th, 2012

I’m pissed! It’s been 2 days after the show and I can’t believe I’m still pissed! Wtf was Kurt Sutter thinking??? I feel like this was insensitive to SOA fans. We all love Ope, and this was a huge mistake. You don’t let one of your best, most adored characters get taken out unexpectedly like that. Everybody agrees on two things: 1. Opie and Jax are fan favorites, and 2. Tara is a fucking downer. You shoulda killed that depressed bitch. I think this was a mistake Kurt. Unless Ryan had personal reasons and requested to leave, you fucked up big time Sutter.

Posted by Maria on September 27th, 2012

Omg I can’t believe this happen I feel like the killed a family member rip

Posted by Rotrl on September 27th, 2012

Opie looked like a Viking warrior standing there with the pipe in his hand, full of honor and fury!
There was a look of peace in his eyes when the death blow was delivered.
He was a character who is deserving of some rest from the torment of his life.
His passing was profound and to be honest only makes me want a conclusion for Jax that much more.

So very sad and seriously fucked up over this! Ruined my life this week. Whyyy?!!! I get it, but it really hurts, Sutter. Really bad. Gonna miss sweet Opie and his good-heartedness! Worst scene I have ever watched, but so wonderfully played and written. Dammit. :( Love you Opie, RIP.
Jax will avenge your death at least and I can’t wait to watch that shit happen!!!!

Posted by Heather on September 28th, 2012

First Opie, now Johnny Lewis. What the hell? Ryan Hurst was my favorite, but I get why Kurt Sutter made the choice that he did. While we all mourn the death of Opie, Half-Sack’s true life portrayer is dead for real. Ryan, I wish you the best in all of your future endeavors, and Johnny, R.I.P. man. So very tragic all the way around, it’s just sad to hear people say that Johnny flipped out because Opie died. A little more respect people. Just sayin…

Posted by CatherinaG on September 28th, 2012

This is going to sound harsh, but I don’t even want to watch Sons anymore. I’m running out of people to like on the show with the discovery last season that Clay had John Teller killed, and then murdered Piney to cover it up, Tig losing his head and unintentionally taking out Pope’s daughter, then last Tues Gemma goes back to being evil and manipulative, and Opie is brutally murdered. I was really rooting for him, the underdog of the show, who kept getting shafted by the club. I liked it better when Jax was inspired by his father, after reading his journal, to get the club out of running guns and I admired Tara standing her moral ground about raising children in the club. Now they’re becoming a bunch of self-serving thugs who will go to any length to get what they want. But then again, it’s Sons of Anarchy, not Sons of Peace, Love, and Harmony. They’re just really heavy on the anarchy part this season.

Posted by Catherina on September 28th, 2012

So I wonder what the ratings will be like next week. Because it seems like more people were unhappy with the decision to off Ope (and some even said they’d stop watching) than those who praised Sutter with “gutsy” or “ballsy” writing.

Posted by Psychgal on September 28th, 2012

I’m probably different than the rest. As sad as I am to have sat and watched Opie die, I am moved by the reasoning behind the death. Sutter is an amazingly talented writers and I kept that in mind while watching. Opie sacrificed himself for the love of his brothers and club even after living with the knowledge that those same things took away all that he once loved in life. When asking Lyla to watch the kids, he told her that he didn’t think he loved anything anymore. True probably, but in the end, it wasn’t just a get out of life free card…he did it for the club and to save his brothers. RIP OPIE!

Posted by iJINKX on September 28th, 2012

RIP OPIE… You went out like a TRUE SON… Fighting against the enemy… JAX will avenge your death… And as for POPE… I’m sure SUTTER has something horrible in mind… Can’t wait to check your next project!!!

Posted by MrBill on September 28th, 2012

What more honorable way to go out then give your life for your brothers in arms. You will be missed Opie. I think a part of Jaxs died with you. Hated to see you go, the show won’t be the same without you.

How could this happen? Opie was the best character in the show! I was shocked and cried over a Damn TV show!! OK t e BEST TV show . I am perplexed on where the future of this show could go w/out such a strong character. Hopefully, Kurt has a lil something up his leather clad sleeve to make up for such a travesty. RIP OPIE

Posted by LB on September 28th, 2012

I have to say, I’m pissed at Sutter for the Opie death. That was pretty much the most painful thing I’ve ever watched on TV. I’m really floored. Kinda devastated. Don’t know what to do with myself. Ugh.

Posted by Misty Dreadspell on October 1st, 2012

I couldnt stop crying as Opie was my fav, his death destroyed and made me churn inside. Opie’s huge heart, loyalty and love for his brothers, taking ‘one’ for the MC made this one of the saddest, deeply disturbing and devastating moments in the series….Im so livid, that Op was ‘killed’ off…now what?

Posted by Chad on October 2nd, 2012

This is bullsh*t! Why in the hell would they kill Opie off the show! Come on really? The producers are morons, I wouldn’t be shocked to see their ratings drop after killing off a main character! Just stupid if you ask me. Op was one of the best characters, loyal to the club, and Jax but now the whole situation of SAMCRO coming out on top and becoming what JT intended for the MC to be will be hard to pull off without one of the main characters that stood by Jax and every decision he made for the club! Should have killed A no name crew member, the cartel (CIA) should have had them out before this took place, hopefully Op ends up surviving the attack and makes it back on the show, most likely they won’t do that, but it would be nice, now the question is, who is gonna take care of Op’s kids? Who is gonna be Jax right hand man? Who is gonna eventually kill clay? I’m mean really guys, you could have let him stay at least to get clay back for murdering his old man! My overall opinion of episode 3 was THE WORST EPISODE EVER FOR ANY TV SERIES and done be surprised to get tons of hate mail over it or for the show to go to sh*t

The guy who killed Opie is a relative of one of THE GRIM BASTARDS…An extra who plays one of the GRIM BASTARDS is online saying that SOA deals with it in an upcoming episode…the guy who killed Opie is named “the real.hightower”

Keep killing off main characters and you WILL lose your audience starting with me. Poor decision at the executive level.

I think I read somewhere that Sutter said that he did what he did to create a catalyst for change in Jax’s character. But you already had that catalyst with the revelations about his father’s death and his accession to the Presidency. Yes, it was dramatic, but that doesn’t mean it was the right choice. That doesn’t mean it was “ballsy” or “gutsy” writing move, either. I think it was just a clumsy, clueless ploy. It was just as unnecessary as killing Hale. Maybe it’s a symptom of his limitations as a writer and an imaginative person that he goes around killing characters for no other reason than creating an impact or as a plot device. It’s like he couldn’t see the impact this character made and would have made by continuing to live. I can’t help thinking that if Sutter appreciated Opie the way we do here on this page, he wouldn’t have done him like that. Opie could have done so much more. And the absence of his surly soulfulness leaves a gaping hole in the show. Wrong move, Kurt. Just because nobody saw it coming doesn’t mean you’re cool for making that choice. We are all poorer for it.

You guys suck,killing off Opie On The,after all that dude gave to The club,to be beaten By some prison apes,show wont be The same

If you understood ope’s character you would know that he was so loyal he would sacrifice his life for jax’s. Also, look at what he has been through. The killing of his wife and father, while knowing the man behind it all is still at the table. I think Sutter is freaking genius by killing ope’s character(although I was truly saddened, and furious at the time watching it). He has been hinting the whole time, that opie has been looking for a way out. He became wreckless after Donna’s death..when jax said “don’t make me kill you ope.” He laughed and fired away. Jax will revenge his death don’t question that. Sutter has created a whole new story line with this. Let the man work and just watch the show. RIP Opie.

Posted by jz on January 23rd, 2013

I liked the idea of opies character, but did anyone find the acting very lifeless and boring thougout season 2 and on?

Posted by Clarissa on February 13th, 2013

I really don’t agree with killing off opie by doing so you think it will up the hype of the show but people are liking it less i am a really huge fan of the but that was by far the worst disappointment ever instead of killing him off you could have had more creative thought of keeping him in most people got he was the next to die because what he was going through so it was predictable instead of being predictable you should have twisted it you may say you have your reasons for the 6th season but the show lost a great actor and main character the show just isn’t the same

Can’t belive they killed of Opie he was the only reason I started to watch the show! He was the best character I was so pissed off! Would have been better if he killed one or two of them before they killed him at least . Ryan you are a legend one of my fav actors
Opie R.I.P brother

Posted by ASK on March 6th, 2013

RIP OP… in our hearts you will always be ALIVE!

Posted by Meanpooh on July 20th, 2013

I just started watching this show. I cant believe how much misery it contains. These guys cant never get a leg up and when they do its short lived. Ope was one of my favorite characters and the way he died made me cry for the first time in a long time. He’ll truly be missed.
