In the episode titled, "Laying Pipe," the drug kingpin Damon Pope wants have of the Sons of Anarchy's monthly earnings. In exchange Damon Pope goes easy on the Sons, but only after of the brothers in prison dies. The choices are between Jax, Tig, Opie, and Chibs.

In an effort to save the Sons motorcycle club, Jax is ready to step forward as the leader of the gang, but Opie gets in the way of his noble effort, and winds up dying at the hands of a prison gang.

Many fans may have not seen in coming for Opie on the show, as his wife had already died at the end of Season 1 of the show.

Some have said that Opie died honorably (mentioned in the fan reviews on the Fall 2012 blog). While other fans are extremely upset about Opie's death on the show.

Either way, Opie's death was symbolic that he died for something much bigger than his life alone. He died for the Sons of Anarchy motorcycle gang.
