JaxღTara (Sons of Anarchy) #8: Because Jax's grabby hands thinks Tara's body is his wonderland
: : W E L C O M E to the 8th : :
* * * * * The Dedicated Doctor ღ The Badass Biker
ღ Jackson "Jax" Teller ღ Played by Charlie Hunnam
Jax Teller is the Vice President of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club's Redwood Original (SAMCRO) chapter based in Charming, California. Jax met Tara Knowles in high school and the two fell madly in love. Their relationship is described by Jax as being "Crazy ****. That I-gotta-be-with-you-every-minute-or-I’m-gonna-kill-myself type of crazy". At 19 Tara chose to leave Charming and Jax chose to stay and focus on the club. Jax married Wendy, but after limited periods of sobriety, he finally left her. Jax and Tara's paths cross again when Tara becomes the attending physician when his son, Abel, is born. Jax never forgot Tara and admits that he married Wendy because he was tired of the endless disconnect and that her face was the only face he saw when he was with other women. Before long, tentative flirting gave way to feelings that had never gone away.
ღ Dr. Tara Knowles ღ Played by Maggie Siff
Tara Knowles is a native of Charming, California and was Jax Teller's high school girlfriend. Their relationship was so intense, that during this era she got a crow tattoo on her lower back representing her connection to SAMCRO. Tara was the youngest woman to ever be branded with the crow. She was arrested in Jax's company at least three times and eventaually chose to leave town, trying to get away from small-town life and the influence of the club. Tara returns to Charming a decade later, but is no longer the trouble teen. She is now a respected surgeon and volunteers her help when Jax's son is born prematurely. Despite wanting to seperate herself from Jax and the club, their passion flames, their chemistry collides and destiny pushes them right back to where they started - with each other.

ღ The Quotes ღ
The New York Times' series-premiere review of SoA remarked on the "chemistry" between Jax and Tara, and described the character as "beautiful, refined and book-smart."
"I think Jax is not running away, and he is committed to Tara, and he's not looking for something outside of the life" - Kurt Sutter
Entertainment Weekly described Tara as "in smoldering love with Jax..."
"Jax's pledge to Tara is what has been driving him all season" - Kurt Sutter
"I think that the whole thing that played out with Tara, in the first half of the season...that was him needing to distance himself from her, because he didn't want the responsibility of potentially hurting somebody else the way he felt he hurt Abel. That fear is why he pushed her away and ultimately why—whether consciously or unconsciously—he went to the deal breaker, which was somebody else. And got his wish. But when he finds out she's pregnant, [together with] the consequences that she goes through and the changes that happen with her [because of the pregnancy and kidnapping], ultimately those dire circumstances bring them back together. He feels like, 'I'm not going to let anything like what happened to Abel happen again,' which is why I think he's consciously making those darker, life-altering decisions that he makes in the finale — so that nothing like that happens again." - Kurt Sutter
On Tara's pregnancy: "Seriously, if Jax Teller's seed finds purchase in the rocky place that is your womb, just go with it, gurl" - Jennifer Arrow
Maggie Siff on "What do you like most about Tara?"
"The thing that she shares with the rest of the world is the thing I like – she’s fiercely loyal. She’s passionately in love with this man and her attraction to the people in this family – which is really the only family she knows – is very, very strong. She ends up going to great lengths for them even she knows it’s against her better judgment some of the time. She’s also really smart, so when push comes to shove, she manages to navigate complicated situations. When I get to engage her passion and intelligence at the same time is when Tara is at her best.
