When Jax demurs and says the club may not approve, Pope tells Jax to run it by the cartel and the Sons, and he’ll set up a meet with the Niners, Lin and the Mayans. If Jax gets the go-ahead from the club and Romeo, then he can take the meet and make sure all’s good in the hood. If the club or cartel nix the idea, Pope will just continue to charge the Sons $50,000 per mule.
If Jax can swing this deal, Pope will also give him 2% of the profits from Pope’s 30 kilos, right off the top. Jax, flabbergasted, asks why Pope would even dabble in drugs since he makes millions from legitimate business deals. Pope tells him that the narcotics business has always been his most reliable and profitable venture.
At St. Thomas, Unser checks in with Sheriff Roosevelt, who is anxiously awaiting news about Rita’s current state of health. We find out that Roosevelt’s on mandatory 10-day leave from the job, and Unser offers to be a sounding board or whatever Roosevelt needs. Eli first guesses that the East Dub guys are responsible, in retaliation for the charges stemming from the holding room riot that went on and led to their stay in county jail. Unser tells him that the East Dub guys report to Pope, and a home invasion is beneath Pope’s dignity. Roosevelt then insists the Sons must be directly or indirectly at fault for the break-ins, and Unser tells him he’s starting to believe that, too. They’ll find out something certain when the DNA that the nurse collected from under Rita’s fingernails comes back from the lab.
The doctor calls Eli back behind closed doors, and we soon find out that Rita has died. Guess it wasn’t enough for the writers to kill off the baby.
In another room in St. Thomas, Clay’s getting a recovery checkup and the doctor tells him his lung’s doing so well, he doesn’t need the oxygen tank.
Clay lies to Juice and tells him his check-up didn’t go so well. Clay sees Unser getting coffee from a hospital machine and tells Juice to go get the van. Clay asks Unser about Rita and finds out she died (double drink for the death and the JC!). When Clay tries to surreptitiously lay the blame for Rita’s death on the East Dub crew, Wayne begins a game of “read between the lines, Clay … I’m on to you”. Clay thinks he’s tricky, until Unser lets him know that Roosevelt has some DNA from the perps.
