Unser’s cleaning up the mess, again. What their lives’ would be like without their own personal law man, I don’t know. I just know every outlaw club in the country should have their own cop to cover the bases and clean up the messes.
Gemma has a good idea why Clay took that money; she’s not dumb. She’s been around the block once or twice. The writing is on the wall, but knowing it and proving it are two different things.
I would say Clay is for sure, one of, if not the most, evil men, I have ever come across. Killing your stepson’s wife, the mother of your grandkids, that’s low.
Jax and Tara are getting a glimpse of what life could be like…free, just them, not a real worry in the world, not the club, not the cartel, not the danger.
Clay looked like he saw a ghost when Gemma told him Jax was with Tara. He held his composure very well, but he looked like his heart stopped. He can’t stop what he started. The cartels play for keeps. Sending Tig after Jax will be a wild goose chase with Jax having a ten hour lead.
Jax dealt with that CHP well, especially after he got freaked out. You let them set the pace, if they are polite, you are polite, but you can never take shit from anyone.
Sheriff Roosevelt is trying to redeem himself, a little late, but he is trying. He has figured out the AUSA is a piece of shit, a lying conniving manipulating man, out to exact the end to his means, no matter what laws he breaks. That part of the show is real.
Clay is unraveling, Gemma can see something is up and she is going to keep pushing that envelope. She knows Clay killed Piney and she has a good idea he took that money to kill Tara. Clay is done with her questions, she is just an old lady; an old lady that is complicit and knows all his secrets and what can bring him down. I think Clay should be treating her like a partner, she did help him get where he is. They killed JT together. How quick things can change, especially when you’re in too deep.
They bungled the hit on Tara and made it a kidnapping, but Jax saved the day. He kept his cool, took aim and stopped that vehicle. Tara is screwed, her hand is crushed. Those dudes might have spoken Spanish, but they were white, not Mexican military.
At the hospital, Gemma knows it’s Clay who did this. The club is in too deep and they know it, you can see it on their faces. Wheels are turning and they need to stop, but they just keep on turning. They think all this shit is from the cartel. Imagine what will happen when they find out its Clay. Everything you live for, your ideals, your reason, out the window. What do you do then? When the thing you believe in most, the men you believe in most turn out to be nothing at all. Not worth shit. What do you do then?
Juice is a piece of shit, I don’t know how he lives with himself. How can he wake up day after day and look himself in the mirror? I don’t know. He thinks he can redeem himself by only ratting on a few to save his own ass and then save the club, but nothing can redeem Juice, nothing.
Laroy ain’t playin. When you come charging into a Niner bar, you get fired upon. Makes sense, especially after three of their guys got killed that morning. Alvarez believes in an eye for an eye. Rafi’s dead, a Niner’s dead. Those relationships are over.
Tara’s exit strategy is gone. All she has left is to be an old lady. Her hand is crushed with a lot of nerve damage. She is a surgeon, or was. No one is going to hire her now. She blames Jax and the life for all of this happening to her.
Gemma called it exactly, Clay got a refund for the hit not going through. There is only so much Clay can take until he snaps, which is not a lot. I cannot believe he beat the shit out of Gemma. That was not smart. How will he explain that? Jax is not going to understand it at all. Clay is evil personified.
I am amazed the club isn’t taking notice of Juice talking to the Sheriff all the time. He shows up and wants to speak to Juice so he can apologize, trying to find some justification. Sheriff needs to figure which side of the fence he is on.
Jax coming clean doesn’t mean anything to Opie. Opie stayed after Donna was killed, and he came back for Jax after he wanted out. There is no way he will understand Jax leaving. Opie needs Jax in this club.
Jax has to play the cards he has been dealt and tough it out. Telling Opie to go patch things up with his wife and dad, to hang onto his family, the club, this is what Jax needs to do. He needs to hang onto his family, all of it, Tara, the boys, AND the club. They are Jax’s family. He just has to get the cartel out of his equation and he will be better off. Get back to the basics.
Gemma is tough, nothing’s broken. Her face is bashed in, she knows what has to be done, and she will give that executive order. Clay has got to die, at the hand of a son, her son.
