It sooooooooo better not be Chibbs. I know he had his run with the Irish stuff and therefore he may not have much story left to tell but I need to hear his 'Jackie-boy' at least once an episode. Still say it's Ope.
Which brings us to Chibs... the most likely victim to fall in Tuesday's episode. Tommy Flanagan is great in the role and his Celtic blessing for Jax and Tara (Maggie Siff) during their wedding was one of the show's more touching moments in recent memory.
But Chibs doesn't have a storyline of his own. He's simply a supporting player in everyone else's lives... and that makes him expendable. Chibs has been around since the beginning of "Sons of Anarchy" and his death would rock the club to its core. The audience would also feel the loss more effectively for Chibs than they would for a lesser character. Chibs may not have the spotlight, but he is important to this series.
There's always a chance that Chibs won't be sacrificed. However, if we were placing bets, this is where our money would go.
