Drea de Matteo has been bumped up to a series regular for the upcoming seventh and likely final season of Sons of Anarchy, according to TVLine. De Matteo's Wendy has been a presence on the show since season one, but now that Tara is, uh, out of the picture, it makes sense that she'd take on a more prominent role. As SoA draws to a close, one can't help but wonder: How will all these characters gruesomely murder one another on or before the finale?
