Happy Election Week, Gasmii! I hope all your dreams came true, and if they didn’t, well, the 22nd Amendment ensures that The Big O is done for real in four more years.
You’re welcome, Republicans!
For those of you who watched SoA instead of election coverage, let’s do this!
Jax wakes up in Abel’s hospital bed to a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed — and healed — Abel asking for breakfast. Jax asks A what he wants to eat.
Well, Mom and Grandma usually eat Doritos and powdered doughnuts for breakfast, but I’d be happy with some cookies.
At Diosa Norte, Nero and Gemma are having a cup of coffee and discussing their relationship and the biggest hurdle to achieving a relationship: Jax.
Do you love me? Do you wanna be my friend? Check “yes” or “no”, ese.
As Gemma gets up to leave for the garage, Nero asks if she wants to give him a ride to visit that special-needs kid he sometimes claims,
What’s his name? Dios Mio, you think I’d remember … Lucille? Louis? Lucious? It’s Lucius, Lucius!
since Frankie went all Grand Theft Auto on his ride the previous day. Gemma’s hesitant at first, since she recently almost killed her own two grandchildren, so she’s not too excited about letting another
probable victim kid into her life, but Nero is persuasive. He tells Gemma that Lucius likes meeting his friends, especially the pretty ones. Gemma’s not one to be swayed by compliments but … who are we kidding? She says she’ll pick him up at noon. Sounds like a real hot date!
Clay’s meeting with the three most non-Italian-looking Italians that I’ve ever seen, supposedly from Oakland, asking them about Frankie and if they know anything about his whereabouts.
We may not be from the Old Country, but we do bus tables at the Oakland Olive Garden … capiche?
The head “Eye-tal-eeahn”, Jimmy Cacuzza, seems dubious that Frankie would seek out mobsters in California for protection. Clay tells Jimmy that Frankie used to work with the Gambino family in Rockaway, NJ, so he still has ties. Jimmy tells Clay he must have reached out to the Rizzi (Reno) or Pirelli (Tahoe) crew for protection, because Jimmy hasn’t heard anything. To thank him for the info, Clay gives him a stack of cash and a box of Glocks. Quasi-useful information is expensive in today’s economy.
At St. Thomas, Maggie stops Tara in the hallway to tell her that she did her a favor and changed Tara’s status to “married” on her hospital insurance so Jax and Abel — and Abel’s hospital stay — are now covered too. Tara was previously listed as single, which only provided coverage for her and birth-son Thomas. Tara thanks Maggie for the switch but then gives the camera bitch face, so this must be an oversight that Tara planned for some reason. Maggie also gives her the message that Stockton prison needs Tara to call them as soon as possible.
