*SPOILER ALERT* – If you have not yet watched the entire Sons of Anarchy series, this post will spoil events of the show for you. Please read at your own risk!*
For the entirety of the Sons of Anarchy series, Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) was caught in a swirling triangle between Wendy Case (Drea De Matteo), his first wife and Abel (Evan/Ryder Londo)’s birth mother, and Tara Knowles (Maggie Siff), his second wife and Thomas (Sofia/Victoria Markov)’s birth mother. Wendy, still much in love with Jax, watched him slide into a new life with Tara, unable to do anything about it.
Wendy was a drug addict, in and out of rehab and unsuitable to raise Abel, who was born with a serious genetic heart defect. She wanted to get clean, and be there for her little boy, but Jax was unconvinced that she’d care more about Abel than the drugs. In a twist of fate, that was out of Wendy’s hands, Tara became the woman to raise Abel, unknown to Abel that she was not his real mom.
In the end, Wendy and Jax made peace with one another, and Wendy went on to raise Jax’s boys after both he and Tara died. Here at SOA Fanatic, we have found a beautiful, yet heart-wrenching tribute video to Jax and Wendy. It perfectly conveys the back and forth struggle between the two characters, and highlights the never ending love between them. Watch the tribute, then let us know in the comments how it’s made you feel. Aren’t you just a puddle of tears right now?
