Many a 'Sons of Anarchy' fan found themselves maddeningly disheartened when longtime series star Ryan Hurst left the series, and put to rest his role as Jax's trusted childhood friend and SAMCRO member Harry "Opie" Winston. After last weeks climactic "To Thine Own Self," the FX biker drama prepares for the final acts of its fifth season, though not without sending Hurst off with a special goodbye. And what's more special than putting a samurai sword to your own face, after all?
Like you, we adore the work of Ryan Hurst, everything from his bit turn in 'Saving Private Ryan' to his Emmy-worthy work on Kurt Sutter's FX biker drama 'Sons of Anarchy.' However, all good things must come to an end, and at least for the time being, it seems that we won't be seeng Hurst's character Harold "Opie" Winston return to 'Sons of Anarchy' anytime soon. Still, we'll gladly follow Hurst into the breach, so where will his next role in TNT's 'King & Maxwell' take him?
