^^^ Agreed. Otto died righteously, giving the club one final gift of removing a major circling predator. Was shocked at the other deaths as well. SAMCRO is dwindling down close to minimum charter size. Would be a sad state of affairs if the first MC of its name died from attrition like this. Jax realizes this and is doing everything he can to ensure the club survives.
I wonder if they'll merge with another club at some point, possibly something that was "patched over", like the one back in season 1? In Masonry, when a Lodge is about to die from low numbers/lack of funds, it merges with another, more resilient Lodge. I could see that happening here, maybe close to the end of the series next year.
