Harry 'Opie' Winston was a member of the MC known as the Sons of Anarchy. His father Piney was also a member of the club and one of the First 9. He was best friends with the club's current President, Jackson 'Jax' Teller and just finished a 5 year prison sentence in the Chino State Penitentiary. He fathered 2 children with his recently deceased wife, Donna Winston. Like Jax, the club was in his blood, it's the only life and family he had ever known. Opie was killed in San Joaquin County Correctional Facility, after a brutal beating and fatal blow to the back of the head.

BiographyEdit

Season OneEdit

SIDEARM

Opie's GLOCK 18

Opie was paroled from a five year stay in prison following his conviction for a botched arson (blowing up a truck yard) with ex-member Kyle Hobart. His wife, Donna, was killed by Tig during a botched hit against him after the ATF set him up as a rat against the club in an attempt to take down SAMCRO.

Season TwoEdit

Opie is still very depressed over the death of Donna. He becomes distant from his children, starts crashing at the Club house and begins to take more risks for the club. He is eventually asked by Jax if he has some sort of death wish.

Opie meets and begins to date porn star Lyla, whom he seems very happy with but desperately wants to get her out of the life (making porn) by getting her pregnant but Lyla is secretly taking birth control so she can continue to work.

Season ThreeEdit

When Lyla and her porn star friends are entertaining businessmen for a deal between SAMCRO and the Lin Triad, Opie starts a fight that loses the club a good cash payment and guns. He went to Belfast, Northern Ireland to back up Jax's search for his son Abel. He also kills Agent June Stahl in the same

fashion that Tig killed Donna.

Season FourEdit

Lyla and Opie were married in the Season Premiere, their wedding was also used as a cover to retaliate against the Russians for going after Jax in prison. When the new wife asked his involvement he kept club secrets and told her they had nothing to do with murdering the Russians. Opie wants Lyla to get out of the porn business, but she continues to work doing girl on girl. He even tries to impregnate her to get her out.

Lyla telling Opie that she did not want to have kids.

When visiting her at work he finds her stash of birth control confirming that she does not want to stop working in the industry cause it is "all she knows" this really hurts Opie and causes him to have a one night stand with her porn star co-worker Ima (who also slept with Jax in season 3) at the club house. Lyla confesses to Opie that she had an abortion before he went to prison, which causes their relationship to slowly fall apart, and does finally snap when V-lo is tasked to bring her to the SOA compound for protection during the heavy battles with Lobo Sonora she gives V-lo the slip and bails on her new family after such a short time. When Opie does finally catch up with Lyla when looking for Georgie, Opie is cold and indifferent and says he does not blame her for leaving as he did not think it would work out anyways, Lyla responds with a verbal kick in the heart saying "nothing will work out until she (Donna) is dead". He finds out that Clay killed his father Piney and is enraged that Clay has

taken his wife, Donna, and his father away from him. Clay has to be stopped before he can hurt any one else he loves. He then immediately shoots Clay two times. In an attempt to stop Opie's rage, Jax shoots him in the wrist, then takes him to Piney's cabin, where he tells him to stay put until everything is cleared up.
Jax-and-Opie

Jax meeting with Opie before becoming SAMCRO President

Soon Jax returns. Opie asks him if Clay was dead, to which Jax replied "No", which angered Opie. Jax told him he would take the gavel and said that he wanted Opie to be his Vice-President—but he did not tell Opie the whole truth, which Opie already knew, so he was further angered. He told Jax that omitting the full truth is the same as lying, and he does not show up for Jax 's investiture as President of SAMCRO.

Season FiveEdit

Opie was out of the club for a short while because he was unable to sit next to the man who killed his father and was not willing to go along with Jax's plan of hiding the truth from the club.  He was seen placing a for sale sign on Piney's motorcycle.  After Clay visits Opie and tells him he shouldn't leave just because Clay is there, Opie decides to come back.  He arrives at the clubhouse as Jax, Chibs, and Tig are surrendering into custody and punches Sheriff Roosevelt to force his arrest along with the others, in order to stay close and protect his brothers.

Opie just before his death

While incarcerated, Jax is forced to accept a deal under Damon Pope's terms: Tig is to remain in the pen, to be tortured forever and Jax must choose the life of another Son to give up in exchange for the freedom of the remaining two.  Jax refuses to appoint  one of his brothers as sacrifice and plans to offer up himself instead.  Opie won't allow Jax to follow through with his plan and assaults the commanding, 'Solitary' Sergeant, thereby forcing himself into the role of sacrificial lamb.  The irrate Sergeant orders Opie be taken to the box, where he's left alone with a pipe to fight Pope's agents, 4:1.  He gives the greatest (last) one liner in the history of the show, " I got this." His brothers watch helplessly, as Opie initially delivers blows, putting up a fight but ultimately is beaten to death with the pipe.  Afterward, Jax brokers a deal with Pope that has the remaining three Sons, including Tig released from the Penitentiary.  Jax vows to avenge Opie's fate. He later finds out the sergeant's name and murders both him and his wife. Jax and the sons also track down Randall Hightower (the inmate responsible for dealing the fatal blow to the back of Opie's head and the cousin of Grim Bastards president, T.O. Cross). Despite Cross's pleas, Jax orders Chib's to kill Randall, who mutters Opie's final words ("I got this") and shoots Randall in the back of the head, finally avenging Opie for good. 

Season SixEdit

The loss of Opie is still prevalent in the sixth season. Jax and other members including Chibs are seen wearing a new patch saying "In memory of Opie," and Lyla cries and asks for Opie after she is tortured by Amir Ghanezi and his brother Kia Ghanezi at their torture porn studio in Stockton.

Season SevenEdit

Opie's grave is briefly seen at the cemetary when Wayne Unser visits Tara's grave to lay flowers at it. ("Black Widower")

MotorcycleEdit

Opie's bike is close to Jax's bike in many ways. It is a 2003 Harley Davidson Dyna Super Glide Sport with Front drag fairing, taped thunderheader exhaust and a custom badlander seat. Opie has embraced the SOA logo on a pile of skulls for his paint on the fuel tank. The engine has been black powder coated. He has drag bars with high risers for handlebars instead of the T-Bars that are common among the rest of the club.

TriviaEdit

  • Opie is the third main character to die in the series.
