11. The 'Sons of Anarchy' Finale

Clay Morrow, the fearsome biker crime lord, loses his power over the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, betrayed by his own hard-ass gangster code. It hurts to see his Kurt Cobain-esque bastard-of-young protegee Jax strip Clay of his gang patch. That scene sums up all the story's cultural conflicts – hippies vs. punks, the 1960s vs. the 2010s, fathers vs. sons, Ireland vs. California – without resolving a one of them. Will shit get even bloodier next season? You think?
