*SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t yet finished the Sons of Anarchy series, this post contains spoilers about the ending. View at you own risk!*
If anyone ever epitomized the definition of the “friend zone”, it was Sons of Anarchy’s Chief Wayne Unser (Dayton Callie). The poor man was madly, deeply in love with the SAMCRO matriarch, Gemma Teller-Morrow (Katey Sagal), and that love led him down a dangerous and winding path. The man would do anything to make Gemma happy and keep her safe.
Ultimately, Unser’s love for Gemma is what ended his life. He died doing what he always found himself doing – pleading for Gemma’s mistakes. He was constantly accused of having SAMCRO in his pockets – taking payoffs for keeping the MC’s secrets, which to be fair, was partially true. If not for his love of Gemma, he may have fought the MC just as hard as any other law enforcement did in the show.
