* SPOILER ALERT – If you’ve not completed the entire Sons of Anarchy series, DO NOT read or watch the following *
Did you know, that throughout the Sons of Anarchy Series, Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) was responsible for 45 deaths as a SAMCRO full-patch member? In total, SAMCRO patched members killed 153 people throughout the 7 seasons of the show – in perspective, Jax committed nearly one-third of those murders himself.
In Season 1, Jax killed Whistler (from the Nordics crew) in the pilot episode. He’d also killed ATF Agent Josh Kohn (Jay Karnes) and an unnamed member of the Niners crew. In Season 2, he’d killed only AJ Weston (Henry Rollins), who’d raped Gemma Teller (Katey Sagal).
Throughout Season 3, Jax eliminated Liam O’Neill (Arie Verveen) and Hector Salazar (Jose Pablo Cantillo), while executing Viktor Putlova (Keith Szarabajka) and an additional two Niners in Season 4. Jax beat Prison Guard Mackey (Jack Conley) to death with a snowglobe in Season 5, as well as Charles Turner, Ray Barnes, a member of the Galindo cartel, and three separate Pope employees.
Seasons 6 and 7 were especially bloody for Jax, as he’d killed Beatie, Eddie Gerber, Alice Noone (Adrienne Barbeau), Galen O’Shay (Timothy V. Murphy), Clay Morrow (Ron Pearlman), seven Lin triad members, Pastor Jonathon Haddem, Chris Dun (Tim Park), Chester Kray (Rich Paul), Adam Greenblatt (Christoher Backus), Jury White (Michael Shamus Wiles), three Marks employees, Moses Cartwright (Matthew St. Patrick), Brendan Rourke (Bob McCracken), Charles Barosky (Peter Weller), August Marks (Billy Brown), Wayne Unser (Dayton Callie), and Gemma Teller-Morrow (Katey Sagal).
At the end of Season 7, Jax was also responsible for his own death, when he intentionally drove his father’s bike into Milo (Michael Chiklis)’s big rig. Do you as fans, feel as though Jax was justified in committing all of these murders? Do his good intentions balance out his bad deeds?
