Sons of Anarchy: Opie Sesame

I think Opie sort of looks like a young, angry Santa Claus.

But unlike Mr. Claus, Opie has no cause to be jolly.

Opie has a shit life. Soon he'll be wifeless, dadless, and best friendless. I'm surprised he hasn't gone bat-shit before now. And where are his kids at the moment? Does Lyla have them?

Maybe it's more Chewbacca than Santa Claus...

Opie is one of the most hard-worn characters on the show. He has no moments of levity. I don't recall him ever laughing at a joke or making a snide remark. He's solid and he's tough. I think if all these men jumped out of the television, he'd be the one I'd want to get away from fastest.

And oh my God - how scary would it be if they all jumped out of the television?

After all this, the preview for next week made it look like Jax is going to leave Opie out of the vengeance game. Opie deserves his revenge. He's lost more than any of the others. He's a whole wife up on Jax.

Maybe he's more of a wolf? Or Jesus in leather?

Look at me - bringing it back to Santa Claus.
