O'Phelan previously ran current SAMCRO member Chibs out of the IRA and stole Chibs's wife and daughter (Fiona and Kerianne), years later threatening to dump Fiona and [[WifeHusbandry marry Kerianne next]] to Chibs's face. He goes rogue in the third season after receiving a demotion back in Ireland. He tries to kill all of SAMCRO and SAMBEL in an explosion, and after his family escapes his wrath he kills an IRA member in a failed attempt to get them back before torturing and executing another one to find Jax Teller's kidnapped baby son Abel. He murders the adoptive family Abel was placed with and takes the child to ensure his escape to the States, before exchanging him for another hostage whom he later kills. Aside from his bodycount, O'Phelan stands out among the show's many gangsters in that he [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes has no real loved ones]] [[note]]He tells Chibs to "take care of our girls," but he may just be trying to taunt Chibs and rob him of the pleasure of killing him.[[/note]], shows no remorse for any of his crimes, and only ever displays purely selfish motives.

* WhatTheHellCastingAgency: Charlie Hunnam? The British pretty boy from ''{{Undeclared}}''? As a biker? More to the point, the Geordie twink from ''QueerAsFolk'', who became famous in the UK for taking it up the wrong 'un from a much older man?

Apparently [[RealLifeWritesThePlot the writers were forced to do this due to Donal Logue's scheduling conflicts]].

** Clay was a very dominant leader and a great fighter in the first season. Sadly, he becomes a backstabbing pussy in all the other seasons, and is rarely seen doing anything. He doesn't even fight back anymore, he just let's himself get his ass kicked. The only badass thing he ever did after 6 seasons was to FaceDeathWithDignity.

** Nero, who's portrayed by Jimmy Smits, jokes in Season 7 that he'd make a great politician. This is the same guy who played [[CorruptPolitician Miguel Prado]] on Series/{{Dexter}}.

* EasilyForgiven: Although Gemma had a part in the murder of John Teller, Jax doesn't seemed to have any resentment towards her, instead towards Clay, since he pulled the strings.



* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler:When the members are told Clay was shot by two black men (In reality: Opie avenging his father), Tig feels responsible and decides to enact revenge on the One-Niners by going after their leader. Like most dramas, Tig doesn't kill the intended target but his girlfriend, who happens to the daughter of the most dangerous gangster in town, Damon Pope. Had he not been irrational, Damon Pope's daughter wouldn't have been dead, Damon Pope wouldn't have caused hell for the Sons, Tig's own daughter and Opie would have been alive today.]]
