Decisions, life is full of them. Swift justice is what the club is about. If there is knowledge of bad conduct, it must be dealt with right away. Clay did wrong. He lied, people died, he went against everything the club believes in and he has to go. There is no excuse for what he did, and he did it out of greed.
Tig can not go against Jax no matter what, and Juice can’t either. Bobby saved Clay again and went against Jax at the same time, he is not in a good spot but he is doing exactly like he said, he is doing his job.
Clay had that beating coming and then some. In fact, it’s pretty amazing they let him get away for everything he did against the club. With all the people he killed, he deserves a lot more than that beating. I’m surprised he didn’t get rat packed.
Bobby is always talking reason, even at the cost of his own friendships. Bobby is trying to protect Jax from becoming the thing he hates, but being in that position of power makes you a savage, it turns you into one.
Clay has a lot to cry about, he just lost everything he devoted his life to. He knows how wrong he is. Everything that happened to him, he brought on himself. I have seen it over and over through the years. Members trying to get things past the club, stealing or lying, but they always get found out. Too many eyes watching when you are in a club, sooner or later everyone gets caught.
Tara is in hot water and that is no joke. She is in the middle of a murder investigation in which she smuggled the murder weapon into the prison. Water doesn’t get a lot hotter than that for a civilian. Even if Lowen can get her off the hook, it will take a long ordeal and a lot of money. And that’s hoping Otto doesn’t say anything
Pope is ready to break ground on Charming Heights. He is a straight businessman and a teacher. Jax is an apt pupil. The advice he is asking about – I wonder who that’s about. Pope wants Tig and I don’t know if Jax can keep that agreement. If he does and it gets found out he will be hated by Sons everywhere. You don’t hand your Brother over to anyone, especially someone you know is going to kill him.
Looks like Lin can take up the slack with the CIA Mexican Cartel. Setting up a pipeline of guns from the east is probably no easy trick, but when the stakes are that high, you take the risk.
I don’t understand why Tara is confiding in or even talking to Wendy anyway. She chose to be out of Abel’s life. It’s hard to imagine that Tara has no one else to take care of the boys in case of emergency. She must know someone or somewhere to turn to before she turns to ex-junkie Wendy. Wendy has a pretty bad track record, so bad in fact she can never be trusted again ever.
Gaalan is another businessman. In the end, the loyalty these guys have is to the almighty dollar. Jax had it all in hand before Romeo came barging in and made that gunfight at the OK corral. Jax is in a bigger mess than he was in before, and the IRA is not going to take this lightly.
Nero is back in command of his gang, right where he belongs. Nero has his hands full with Gemma and he doesn’t see it. Strange for a pimp. Pimps don’t fall in love, pimps fall asleep. Gemma is definitely looking for a safe place to land when the smoke settles after this entire mess.
Juice ain’t shit. He has been a rat against the club, and now he is stabbing the back of the one guy left that has treated him like a brother. He has no honor, no loyalty, and without honor and loyalty a man is nothing. Animals have more loyalty than Juice or Clay. You don’t see animals screwing each other over for a percentage, or to find a way out.
Chibs doesn’t like Wendy either, you can see that easy enough.
So the guy is the Nurse’s brother. No wonder he is so upset. Tara is visibly shaken; this is all starting to make sense now. The levity of not only maybe going to jail, but now there’s a revenge factor. Probably another thing she didn’t stop to think about, as in, “What if this all goes wrong?”
Nero to the rescue again, bailing out Jax and Wendy to the tune of half a million dollars. That’s a pretty big bail out. Nero’s deal brings Jax back to the street right when he is almost out. Nero needs guns and friends, that’s a strong partnership. Especially the friends part.
Clay needs to figure out an exit strategy while he is still alive. It’s just a matter of time before he ends up dead in a ditch. Jax would never let him live, club or not. Running to Ireland is probably the smartest thing he can do. Pretty convenient, friends in high enough places that he can jump on his cargo jet to Ireland.
I don’t think they would have had to pay a half a million for Wendy. Just let her talk for a while and they would have let her go. Wendy thinks she is going to threaten Jax and Tara? That’s insane but these two take threats very seriously.
It’s easy to say Tara is not going to jail but under the circumstances I would move her to a third world nation till this blows over, if it does at all. Doctors are always in high demand.
Bobby is far out of Jax’s circle, he better just let things die down, maybe things will go almost back to normal. They never go all the way back, not after the damage is done. There is only then healing left.
Clay is smart to realize that Jax will kill him, best just to leave. And why not take Gemma with you? That way you can make sure to bring some drama from home.
Being the President is such a monumental, important position that seeing the President having his tattoos blacked out is a chilling sight for any member. You don’t get to be the President easily. It takes work and commitment. So seeing that come to an end is also monumental, just not in a good way.
There are no lengths Jax won’t go to to make sure things go his way. Sticking Wendy with a hot shot, that’s a pretty low blow, even for Jax. I think he hit a new all time low.
One episode left to try to make things right.
