Happy Halloween! Dia de Los Muertos! All Souls Day! … whatever you’re celebrating this week! Any holiday’s a good day to spend with the Sons … let’s get started.
We open with paramedics at the scene of Gemma’s one-car accident.
The Escalade fought the tree and the tree won. The Whomping Willow strikes again.
Gemma’s regaining consciousness and her first thought is for the boys.
Unfortunately, Gemma has woken up in worse places.
We see that Thomas is unharmed, safe in the arms of a paramedic, but Abel is being carried to the ambulance on a backboard, with an IV in his arm and his head immobilized. Gemma’s understandably feeling
At the scene of Jax’s and Chib’s accident, Jax and Chibs are loading the corpse of the man who shot at them into the back of Tara’s car with Tig, while she waits patiently in the passenger seat, silently praying.
Thank goodness I paid the dealership extra for the ScotchGuard.
We find out Bobby’s on his way, and the guys are going to return to the cabin and figure out what to do next.
Clayenstein is riding through the dark streets of Charming, and his arthritic fingers seem to be giving him no trouble at all. He returns to his bachelor pad to find Juicy, on the edge of tears, like he’s always been recently, who tells him about Jax’s attack and Gemma’s accident.
At the cabin, Tara and Jax are in the bedroom and are discussing who could be behind the Jax/Chibs attack. He tells Tara he’ll take care of it and warns her to stay inside the bedroom, with the iPod/Bose system turned all the way up, while he, Tig, Chibs, and Bobby figure out who the dead guy who shot at them is and what they should do with his body. Chibs checks the guy for identifying tattoos, but only finds a few prison tats, and nothing that signifies an affiliation with Pope or the Niners or anyone else. Too bad these bad guys don’t carry wallets with i.d. When Tig asks Jax how he wants to dispose of the body, Jax goes the King Solomon route.
Hands are pretty much gratuitous at this point, anyway.
Jax tells Chibs to give one chopped-off hand to Unser so he can run the fingerprints through the system and see what he comes up with.
Even Tig thinks this method is a little sick.
At the same time, Jax wants Pope to get the other hand and figure out who the guy is so Jax can test Pope’s trustworthiness and see if he comes up with the same info Unser will deliver. If only Dexter were here, with his trusty smartphone fingerprint app.
Yes, I stole this pic from JalleytoCali’s (holla!) Dexter recap on tvgasm. Still, it would be convenient for Jax. Much less chopping involved.
