How accumulated body count has led SAMCRO to a crossroads; fifth in a series (NSFW)
''Sovereign'' (season 5, episode 1)
RIP: Dawn Trager
Death by: Fire
Reason: Tig got a call saying an Oakland detective (Derek Anthony) had picked up his daughter Dawn (Rachel Miner) for a DUI, but since the cop was a brother-in-law of one of the Grim Bastards, SAMCRO's ally, he wouldn't charge her if Tig came to collect her himself.
Result: When Tig got to the location, he found Dawn alive in a pit with the bodies of Laroy and Darnell. Pope had Tig chained close enough to watch gasoline be poured on her but far enough away that he could only wail powerlessly. Tig begged Pope to kill him instead. ''Know my pain, Mr. Trager,'' Pope said. Then, he tossed in the cigar he'd been smoking to burn Dawn alive. Watching the flames engulf her was horrifying, but hearing her scream, ''Daddy!'' for the last time earned this death a spot in our list of the most disturbing TV scenes ever.
Reverberations: See next slide.
