- "Eddie was always more talk than walk."
- ―Ernest Darby, on Eddie Gerber
Eddie Gerber is a member of the Aryan Brotherhood on the FX original series Sons of Anarchy. Played by American actor Colin Hoffmeister, Eddie is formerly a Nordic, forms a small crew based out of his ranch, and meets his demise during his only appearance, on the episode "Wolfsangel" in the series' sixth season.
Eddie Gerber was originally a member of the Nordics. He was arrested and sent to Chino for ten years, during which time the Nords collapsed. After that, he joined the Aryan Brotherhood, and, upon his release from prison, began recruiting members for a new crew in San Joaquin County. After a few months, he was in charge of four Aryans, including Beatie and Plow. They use wood cutouts of people wearing afro wigs for target practice.
Clay Morrow, an excommunicated member of SAMCRO, kills an Aryan shot caller in the San Joaquin County Correctional Facility. In retaliation, Gerber sends three of his crew to attack Wayne Unser, a SAMCRO associate, and they carve a swastika into his stomach.
Shortly afterwards, two new potential recruits - “Al Whiteman” and his son “George” - show up at the ranch. Gerber is willing to give them a chance, but then Ernest Darby, the former Nordics leader now married to a Mexican woman, and Juice Ortiz, a half-black, half-Puerto Rican SAMCRO member, are captured. “George” puts a gun to Gerber’s head and they take him hostage. After he threatens to kill Darby and his wife, Tig kicks him out of the truck.
Later, all of SAMCRO and several members of SAMDINO return to the ranch armed with automatic weapons. Gerber, shot in the chest by SAMCRO President Jax Teller, is killed alongside his men. The massacre is staged to look like an internal conflict, and the ranch is burned.
Aryan shot caller Ron Tully later questions Jax, among other things, about the slaughter at Gerber’s ranch. However, Jax maintains that it was internal, and Tully doesn’t press the issue.
