Pope reluctantly, and with August volunteering to stay on site all day and speak with the lawyers, agrees to create and sign two copies of a Letter of Intent to do all these things, providing Mayor Jacob with one copy at Hale’s office and bringing another one to Jax when he drops off Tiggy later that day. Jax has another caveat: Pope has to meet in San Joaquin County for the exchange; Tig would be too suspicious if Jax tried to drag his ass up to Oakland for some made-up errand. Pope says he owns an abandoned warehouse in Middle River, a rural part of SJC that would be perfect, and he’ll see Jax and Tig there at 2:00 pm.
At T-M, we see Juice take some cloth-wrapped item out of a locker and put it in a bike’s saddlebag. I don’t know whose bike it is, since they all look the same to me, kind of like all the prospects’/Diosa ladies’ faces. Clay’s there too, cleaning out what’s left of his mechanic tools, and he meets Gemma in the office to chat. They kick out the now-French-speaking Chuckie, sending him to Casa Teller with some floor mats Tara ordered,
What’s next for Chuckie’s idiosyncrasies, Mr. Bean references?
and decide to meet up at Clay’s at 3:00, since Gemma has decided to go to Belfast with Clay on the 4:30 cargo flight that Galen has offered.
Back at St. Thomas, Maggie’s going over Tara’s check-up results with her and the associated charts. Apparently, there was no permanent damage and she could be back in the OR in six months,
that is, if we can get you into some Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ASAP, you’ll be back in the operating room in six months.
Wendy almost barges in on them and Maggie takes that as her cue to leave. Tara asks her to forward the results to the Providence people, and lets Wendy come in. At first, I thought Wendy relapsed after Jax shot her up, ’cause girl looks like
she was rode hard and put away wet,
but an abundantly sober and pissed Wendy is there to rant AGAIN. She tells Tara about the Jax attack, shows Tara the injection site and begs her to leave town with the boys before it’s too late. Tara tells her she’s leaving, she just needs to work out the details.
Mr. Bean returns to the T-M office with what looks like a funeral floral/food arrangement that he found on Tara’s and Jax’s porch and was afraid would spoil in the heat. Gemma reads Tara’s card because, well, because she’s Gemma:
Looks like the flowers will be for Tara’s funeral.
In Stockton, Jax and the boys are backing up Nero and his crew while they check in with all the small business people Nero used to protect before he cleared out and opened Diosa Norte in Charming. Now all the shopkeepers are paying protection to a rival crew headed by “Dante”.
cholita salon owner has to moonlight as Carmen in the off-off-Broadway production to make ends meet now that Nero isn’t protecting her from graft.
