In honor of yesterday being Mother’s Day, we’re going to make today all about Gemma Teller-Morrow (Katey Sagal, Sons of Anarchy), because as we all know, Gemma was the mother of all mothers. Jax (Teller, Charlie Hunnam) had 99 problems, and they were all Gemma. Everything Gemma ever did was for the love of her son and his boys, and we think it’s safe to say that she was the den mother for all of the boys of SAMCRO.
Gemma’s heart was always in the right place, we can agree on that. Her head on the other hand? It made her irrational, impulsive, and caused more trouble than anyone could even begin get her out of. Gemma’s whole rise and fall was attributed to her role as Jax’s mother. *SPOILER ALERT* She killed Tara (Knowles-Teller, Maggie Siff) thinking that she was saving Jax, not realizing that Jax had already solved that looming problem, and from there on out all of Gemma’s decisions literally killed everyone and everything close to Jax.
Gemma, a woman of mass distraction, was a fierce mom, and we’re going to pay tribute to that today with a video made by YouTuber Linn Einarsson. Check it out below, it’s a compilation of Gemma’s finest (and not so fine) moments. Tell us in the comments how you’d have handled having Gemma for a mom.
