As you would expect from a show centered on a violent motorcycle gang and their numerous enemies, there is a lot of bloodshed and heartbreak throughout the series. These scenes are generally hard to watch, tug at your heartstrings and really make you care about these make believe characters and their lives.
In a show full of heartbreak and despair, it was hard to narrow this list down to 10, so some really gut wrenching moments are missing from this list. Also, before reading this list, be aware that it is full of spoilers.
10. Half-Sack is Stabbed to Death
Kip “Half-Sack” Epps is the loveable prospect who was usually used in the show for comedic effect, but got into a more serious role in season two and was about to become a fully patched member into the club. However, just before being voted in as a full time member of SAMCRO, Half-Sack was murdered. This heartbreaking moment took place while Half-Sack was attempting to protect Jax’s son Abel from the Real IRA, and was then subsequently stabbed to death before he was ever a real member of the Sons of Anarchy. He eventually got his wish, though, as he ended up being patched into the club posthumously. In a sad twist of fate, the actor who played Half-Sack, Johnny Lewis, died in sad and disturbing circumstances on September 26, 2012.
