Hello, Gasmii! Hope you’re all having a great week! Let’s get our motors running:
Jax is writing another letter to Abel & Thomas. Apparently, he HATES a lot of people, and it’s keeping him up at night. He’s riding around on his motorcycle when he should be sleeping next to the woman who used to be a pretty nice girl.
I’ll sleep when they’re dead … when they’re all dead!!!
During the voiceover, we get to see Gemma is getting less picky about her bedroom partners as the season continues.
A little Vitamin P, a little pot, I’m golden.
Clay’s got only his guns (lots of guns) to keep him company. As one of you mentioned in the comments awhile back, Clay may not be as sick as he seems, since he’s sans oxygen tank in this scene. Anyway, Jax writes that he buried a part of himself in that box that holds Opie, but each new day is a box, and it’s up to each person to decide whether that box is a gift or a coffin. Symbolism has never been subtle with Mr. Sutter, but we’ll get into that later.
Jax, Bobby and Chibs surprise the Mayor of Charming (Jacob Hale, brother of former Deputy Chief David Hale, who was killed in a SAMCRO-related incident in Season 3) with a little visit during his breakfast at the local diner. The Mayor mentions the home invasions, and says the Charming community is starting to think that SAMCRO is responsible.
Home invasions? Please, Jake, don’t insult us. Coke, guns, whores … we’re big boys.
Jax propositions the Mayor with helping him secure the votes he desperately needs for his plans for “Charming Heights”, a new community he wants to build on local land that he owns. Jacob needs one more councilman to vote “yes” to Charming Heights on the soon-to-be-voted-on motion, or the land will revert to the town for agriculture. In return, the Mayor must lease the old Elks Lodge building he owns on the edge of town to Jax and Nero for the Diosa Norte business. Jacob Hale is surprised that they would think he would be open to that, especially given their history, but Charming Heights is his crowning glory, and he is tempted.
Do you think we could put in a Diosa Norte Dos in Charming Heights?
Jax says he’ll be in touch, and the guys leave. Credits.
At church, Jax tells everyone that he’s set up the three-way meet between SAMCRO, Galen, who is their IRA contact for the guns, and the cartel, to whom the IRA will be selling some big guns with SAMCRO as the delivery men. All the former Nomads — Frankie, Greg, and Go-Go — are more concerned about the locals blaming SAMCRO for the home invasions.
We’re actually more worried about YOU guys finding out that we’re the home invaders, but whatevs.
