They did it on Lost, BSG, and many other shows and it's always a mistake. Sorry to rant but Opies death after everything that happened in his story just angers me.
If you read why he was killed you may understand the direction and how it will apply to character development

NOONE could have died in this show,but Opie, to give the emotional side and growth that the director was going for, period.

A good decision ? Who knows,but for the character, he was spot on with Opie dying.
