It's understandable why Hayley McFarland took the part of Brooke Putner. After her starring role as Emily Lightman in Lie to Me, she wanted something a little meatier and daring to shake off the stigma of being seen as a stereotypical teenager.
While Brooke's backstory is quite tragic and fits in
with the Sons of Anarchy narrative, her character went nowhere rather fast.
She became just another old lady, serving as nothing more than Ratboy's girlfriend.
In fact, if it wasn't for her love story with Ratboy, would we even remember her today?
There was a lot of initial promise for Brooke, but like a lot of other characters she didn't rev up to where she should've been.
