TVLine has learned exclusively that Drea de Matteo has signed on to reprise her role as Jax’s presumably-steamed ex (and baby momma) Wendy for multiple episodes.
When last seen, Jax cruelly injected the former junkie with heroin as a way of undermining her credibility after she threatened to string up his dirty laundry all over the Charming police department.
While Wendy’s return doesn’t bode well for Jax and now-incarcerated Tara, it could prove to be in the best interest of little Abel and Thomas. As series creator Kurt Sutter recently pointed out to TVLine, “The most f—ed-up person at the beginning of the show is now, in a weird way, the healthiest parent.
“She’s the only one that’s hit bottom and had to do some work on herself,” he continued. “And now she has some self-awareness, which none of those guys do.”
Sons of Anarchy‘s sixth season bows this fall on FX.
