15 characters who survived the entire show

No character was ever safe in the FX series Sons of Anarchy. Even the main anti-hero Jax Teller did not quite manage to escape the Grim Reaper. By the time the show ended, there had been a total of 399 character deaths. The seventh and final season had the highest number of deaths (28), followed by the third season (23).

Although many of these killings were just random side characters, a few were completely heartbreaking and completely changed the series. But that was part of what made the show so amazing. It was never easy to say who would be next. Lots of fan-favorite characters were killed, but a few lucky ones also managed to survive.


Updated January 8, 2022 by Hilary Elizabeth: Despite the fact that Sons of Anarchy had no problem letting even the most important characters die in an unbelievably brutal way, many people came unexpectedly throughout the series. Whether they deserved it or not, all these great players in the Sons of Anarchy never met Mr. Mayhem.

Ernest Darby

Darby was introduced at the very beginning of the series. He was a white superior drug dealer and producer, and he immediately came on Jax’s bad side when he found out that Darby had sold meth to Wendy while she was pregnant with Abel.

They continued to have a contentious relationship until Darby finally withdrew from his life of crime and went straight, ironically settling down with one of the Latin American women he used to hire.

Tig Trager

Given his penchant for violence, it was a surprise that he survived the entire show. Given the number of senseless murders committed by Tig Trager, viewers probably predicted that karma would come for him. But it never happened. Tig survived, and according to the events of the spinoff Mayans MC.he is still SAMCRO’s current vice president.

The seventh season was especially good for Tig. He had a fruitful relationship with Venus Van Dam, and after the club voted for Jax to “Meet Mr. Mayhem”, Chibs was promoted to president while Tig was made vice president.

Wendy Case

Most viewers expected that Jax’s two main love interests, Tara would survive over Wendy and be the one who would stay standing after the show ended. Unfortunately, she was killed by Gemma. Last season, Jax admitted to Abel that Wendy was his biological mother. He then gave Nero the task of taking care of Wendy, Abel and Thomas. Then he told both Wendy and Nero that he was going away.

Wendy sensed that something was wrong, but she did not understand what was happening. Jax did all this because he was planning to commit suicide. The club had voted for him to “Meet Mr. Mayhem” and he did not want to put that responsibility on his loved ones so he decided to do it himself. Wendy was thus left with children after Jax’s death.

Ima and Sons of Anarchy

Ima was most memorable for her intense infatuation with Jax and her willingness to mess with Tara in hopes of winning him over and ending their relationship.

Obviously, her attempts to interfere had no real effect, but when she gets involved in Opie and Lyla’s relationship, Jax assaults her in horrible ways in an attempt to get her to back up. Apparently, aggression against Ima runs in the family, for the last time she is seen, Gemma also assaults her to set Lyla up to take to a dangerous video recording.

Chibs Telford

Chibs was often calmer and more balanced than the other SAMCRO members, so his survival was not so surprising. His discipline paid off when he ended up as SAMCRO’s president. He even appeared briefly in the second season of Mayans MC to help the Mayans mediate a arms deal.

After all the hell he had been taken through by Jimmy O, Chibs finally found romance last season. He briefly dated Eli Roosevelt’s successor, Lieutenant Althea Jarry. They later broke up, but fate was still kind to Chibs when he ended up becoming president.

Ethan Zobelle

A common cliché across most shows and movies is that the villain ends up dying. That was not always the case Sons of Anarchy. Ethan Zobelle – one of the series’ best antagonists – actually survived. In the first and second seasons, Zobelle terrorized SAMCRO and even organized for Gemma to be assaulted and raped, making him one of the the most hated supporting characters in Sons of Anarchy history.

It looked like the sons would finally get revenge when they beat him in the corner of a store. Unfortunately, Jax got a call that Abel had been kidnapped, so they all had to leave. Zobelle thus got a lucky break and fled out of the country. But at least Gemma got revenge by killing her daughter. Viewers hoped Zobelle would reappear and face her death, but that did not happen.

Chucky Marstein

Chucky and Sons of Anarchy

To label Chucky as a strange character would be an understatement. He was introduced to the series as a compulsive masturbator. He paid dearly for his habit as the triads cut off four fingers on each of his hands to make it impossible for him to take into account his urges. He then got an accounting job with Cara Cara as someone only needs two fingers to write.

Chucky would continue to help SAMCRO carry out several illegal activities without having to hold a gun. Surprisingly, apart from his compulsive behavior, he never really got into anyone’s bad books, so he survived all the way and even ended up performing in Mayans MC

Nero Padilla

Nero and Sons of Anarchy

As soon as Nero started dating Gemma, there was always the likelihood that Clay would not let the romance last long. Given Clay’s long history with Gemma, he would have killed Nero. But luckily for the owner of the escort agency, Clay’s past caught up with him and he ended up being killed by Jax.

Nero would grow to become a sympathetic character. He was a father figure to Jax and he also proved to be a very good partner for Gemma. When Jax planned to take his own life, there was no one he trusted more to take care of Wendy and the kids than Nero. So despite being the core of all the club violence, Nero survived.

Marcus Alvarez

Marcus Alvarez had an interesting development in his relationship with Jax and SAMCRO throughout the story.

When he was first introduced, he was a clear opponent of the sons, but as time went on, they became allies, and Alvarez even had a hand in protecting the club when they were serving time in prison. And despite the danger that biker life poses, Marcus lived on and even reached SoA spin off, Mayans MC

Lyla Winston

Dating or marrying a SAMCRO member often felt like a death sentence. Many old ladies ended up dying. But Opie’s second wife Lyla made it to the end. Lyla was originally a porn star employed by Luann. After the death of Opie’s first wife Donna, Lyla and the SAMCRO member grew close.

Other club members initially had reservations about Opie dating a porn star, but he loved her, and so they stayed together. Unfortunately, Opie was killed and Lyla had to suffer to take care of the children. She was last seen in the season 7 episode “Black Widower”, where she worked as a producer for Red Woody Productions.

Glad Lowman

Sons of Anarchy

Happy Lowman started as a member of Tacoma, Washington’s charter, before becoming a nomad. He was eventually patched over to SAMCRO in the third season. Happy did not talk much. And every time the other SAMCRO members hesitated to commit a violent act, he would gladly do so.

Happy was last seen in the final episode of the series, “Papa’s Goods”. By that time, he had been promoted to Seargent-At-Arms. He appeared later in the first season of Mayans MC. where he was seen as a mentor to a new customer. He was then designated by Ezekiel Reyes as suspected of his mother’s death.

Venus Van Dam

Walton Goggins performed excellently as the transgender prostitute Venus Van Dam. She appeared for the first time in the season 5 episode “Orca Shrugged”, where she helped the club blackmail Allen Bicone. Soon she became a close friend of SAMCRO, and Venus eventually fell in love with Tig.

She was often given various assignments by the club, including locating the family of the late preacher Jonathan Haddam, who SAMCRO had accidentally killed. She was last seen cuddling Tig in the series finale when she comforted him over Jax’s death.

Thomas Teller

Jax and Thomas in Sons of Anarchy

Thomas Teller was so young during Sons of Anarchy that he never really developed as a character. Luckily for him, he was still a baby when Nero and Wendy left Charming with him, so he was probably not violently affected by all the horrors that surrounded his early life.

And while it seemed unlikely to let one of Jax’s babies die, given how dark a series the program really was, that was not a guarantee he would reach the end.

Tyne Patterson

Sons of Anarchy CCH Pounder as Tyne Patterson

Being a law enforcement officer in Charming was a dangerous job. Almost all officers and agents involved in Sons ended up dead. From Chief of Police Unser to Deputy Chief of Staff David Hale to the cunning agent Stahl, no one was spared. However, San Joaquin County District Attorney Tyne Patterson came out of all the chaos alive.

Patterson investigated the murder of Cahill Warehouse in Charming as well as the school shooting where the teenage shooter had used a gun sold by SAMCRO. She handled things more amicably and even managed to make a deal with Jax. She was last seen in the series finale “Papa’s Goods”.

Abel Teller

Abel and Sons of Anarchy

It’s clear that Abel did not get through the series emotionally unharmed, but surprisingly, the boy whose death had been predicted in the pilot episode of Sons of Anarchy actually survived the entire show.

Jax Teller’s story begins with his discovery of his father John’s dreams of a better life outside the chaos that the club brings with it, and although Jax may have to give up his life eventually, it seems that he managed to have his sons out. of the criminal world forever.
