Sons Of Anarchy’s 6 Worst Chemistry Couples
FX created a hit when they unleashed Sons of Anarchy on TV viewing audiences. The gritty, biker drama took hold with a lot of fans during its seven season run and, while the aim was definitely at male viewership, the show garnered an unexpected amount of female fans. In between, the drug dealing, graphic scenes, swearing and deaths, there was some focus on relationships that of course twisted and formed into the brutal world of the biker gang. Given the fleeting nature of some of the relationships, the term “couples” in the show is used lightly, but there were some fans rooted for and some we couldn’t wait to see end. Some couples made a lot of sense and worked great together, while others fell flat of the intense desire we were supposed to feel between them due to lack of chemistry. Here are 6 of the worst on the otherwise really good show.
6. Jax and Trinity
Well, in all honestly, there shouldn’t have been any chemistry between these two seeing as how they were half brother and sister. Upon SAMCRO’s arrival in Belfast, Ireland, it was evident that Trinity had a thing for the blonde gang biker, and who can blame her? However, before audiences even knew they were related, the whole thing seemed weird. It is clear Jax Teller has little problem choosing his women, but Trinity just seemed too young to effectively seduce him and it felt awkward. Luckily, their uncomfortable flirtations were only dealt with for three episodes before their mothers finally told them they shared a dad…right before they were going to sleep together.
5. Opie and Lyla
Ryan Hurst as Harry ‘Opie’ Winston was a fantastic casting and although the man was perhaps the most believable of the SAMCRO gang members, he couldn’t make it believable between himself and adult film star, Lyla. Although viewers only saw Opie and his wife Donna together a few times before her death, there was definitely a believable marriage between them, and it could not be recreated when Opie and Lyla started hooking up. As separate characters they were great, but together it seemed like a relationship of convenience more than there actually being anything between them.
