12. Burned Alive
Season 5, Episode 1: "Sovereign"
Alexander "Tig" Trager (Kim Coates) was one of SOA's darkest and most complicated characters — a fiercely loyal, ice-cold enforcer who's also funny, surprisingly compassionate and inclined toward tragic blunders. In Season Four, Tig accidentally ran over the daughter of powerful Oakland mob boss Damon Pope (Harold Perrineau). To retaliate, the criminal kingpin has Tig chained up in a rail-yard, where he's forced to watch as Pope sets his daughter on fire.
