SPOILER ALERT: Sons of Anarchy character and storyline spoilers ahead.
Death is a part of life for the men and women of SAMCRO. Of course, the most devastating Sons of Anarchy death will be the Dec. 9 series finale, when Kurt Sutter's biker family drama rides off into the blood-red sunset. But if we’re talking character deaths, from SAMCRO friends and enemies to SAMCRO family and club members, meeting Mr. Mayhem — the club’s euphemism for death — has often resulted in some of the series’ most memorable, game-changing moments. Here, we're counting down the 20 most devastating deaths in SoA history, and while you might disagree with the order, we're pretty sure you'll agree that these characters have been sorely missed since their meetings with Mayhem.
