Sons of Anarchy ran for seven seasons on FX and it didn’t take long for it to become one of the biggest and most talked about shows on television. It had an ensemble cast of endless talent with a storyline and writing that is not often seen on television thanks to the show’s creator and sometimes guest star Kurt Sutter. While it garnered a loyal legion of fans, many are quick to comment that things really went downhill after the first couple of seasons; however, scattered through all of the seasons lie the most poignant and best episodes of the series. With a show that focuses so much on violence and death it is essential to separate the best episodes with the most memorable because some of the most graphic scenes are the most memorable, but are not necessarily the best. Due to the nature of the show however, important deaths often coincide with the best episodes. Check out the 10 best episodes from Sons of Anarchy:

As is the case with many series, season premieres and finales often resonate the most with fans and have the most impact on the show, and that is true for the season three finale of Sons. Revenge is a key theme in the show and nothing was more satisfying to see that come to fruition for not one but two popular characters in the episode “NS.” The episode revisits the shocking end of season two and allows Opie to finally avenge the death of his wife Donna by killing Agent Stahl in the same way Donna died. Meanwhile Chibs was exacted his own revenge on Jimmy O’Phelan. Not only was this episode rewarding for characters and fans, but it illuminated the fact that dealings with the club are unpredictable, as it was Tig who killed Donna and it was Stahl who died.
