Nero apologizes and tells her he’s back and he’ll make things right. He tells Jax that if they take care of Dante, the rest of the rival crew will fall back and Nero’s crew will Take Back The Night in his 10-block square of Stockton. Dante is apparently running some “fights” in a warehouse down the street. Jax suggests the SAMCRO guys go in on their own to assess the Dante situation and then give Nero feedback on the best way to get rid of Dante. Though Nero is reluctant to start a gang war when Dante outnumbers the SAMCRO/Nero Crew combo, Jax assures him that he has the “Cholo Cavalry” (Mayans?) on the way to back them up.
At the warehouse, we see the fights are actually pit bull fights. I know Michael Vick has a concussion, so I hope he’s not sitting at home, catching up on television and seeing this. This could really screw with the rest of his season.
Kurt Sutter hates the Eagles … or maybe he just loves backup quarterbacks.
Most of the SAMCRO guys are disgusted, except CFP, whose delighted smile disappears as soon as he sees Happy glaring at him (I say again, I love you, Happy). Tiggy, he of the inverted moral compass, is particularly aghast and reminds me of this:
Tiggy has a heart of gold, y’all.
The fight ends and the injured loser is picked up by some guy, who takes her downstairs and out the back of the warehouse. Tig follows the guy, concerned about the dog’s welfare, and the rest of the MC follows Tig, concerned that he’s going to fuck up another one of their crisis-avoidance schemes. Tiggy’s the Pakistan of the SAMCRO world.
Outside, Tig sees the man lay the injured pit in a baby pool and prepare to execute her. He also sees numerous corpses of former losers carelessly shoved into trash cans.
The three P’s of recycling: remember to separate your paper and plastic from your pit bulls!
Tig pulls a gun on the guy before he can kill the dog and the guys catch up with him before he pulls the trigger. Jax reminds Tig why they’re there and Tig keeps his gun on the guy, asking him where Dante is. The guy tells him that Dante is in the warehouse’s office, and Jax orders CFP to bring the injured pit back to the bikes and fill in Nero that they’re about to bust in on Dante. Jax runs after the rest of the MC into the office, but pauses when he sees a homeless woman murmuring to a stuffed horse in dumpster. He is puzzled and then sad and we’re left to wonder what he’s thinking about her.
Chibs busts through a locked gate into a room where Dante and his crew are counting their money. I am pleased to see that Bobby has found a way to even the odds since he has a disa-belly-ty in any fight.
Double fisted danger.
