It never failed to amaze me, how much Kurt Sutter put his own Sons of Anarchy character, Otto Delany, through in the series. If you’ll recall, Otto spent his SOA time in prison, partly on death row; it’s not as if he’d had a superior quality of life.
Season 2, Episode 5: “Smite” showed Otto losing his eye and receiving a prison beating by Aryan members, that had been brought to him by Ethan Zobelle (Adam Arkin) and L.O.A.N. (The League of American Nationalists). If you’ll remember, later in the series, he’d bit off his own tongue to protect SAMCRO, and had been repeatedly raped by prison inmates at the demands of Lee Toric (Donal Logue), for not having given up SAMCRO secrets.
Otto was loyal to the club until the end, and I’d like to know how the other actors in the show felt about staging beatings and rapes against their executive producer. It makes me chuckle.
