Despite his nagging feeling that Jax is pulling the wool over his eyes, August lets it go with a “we’ll do our own investigation and tag your ass if you’re behind it”.
Looking forward to screwing you over in Season 6.
As Jax rides away, August tells one of his guys that he wants Clay dead before his hearing.
Jax comes into the club, greeting Juice and Tig as if he’s going to let them kiss his ring. It’s a little condescending. We see that Tiggy’s new friend will be fine.
Most healthy relationship in the entire MC.
Jax takes a seat of the head of the table, looking vaguely dissatisfied instead of elated or at peace; it’s obvious he’s remembering what he said about the gavel corrupting the President. He must have pictured the scene of his triumph differently.
So did we, Jax, so did we.
Bobby comes in to rub salt in the hollow victory wound, basically telling Jax he’s really disappointed in him and he thought he was bigger and better than this — stooping to Clay’s level. Jax tells him he might not be so different than Clay. He looks like he’s a little tired of Bobby’s bullshit holier-than-thou attitude.
So are we, Jax, so are we.
At Diosa’s, Gemma’s sitting in Nero’s bedroom, asking if they’re going steady, since she’s “not a casual girl”.
I mean, I’m a casual sex girl, I’m just casual in any other areas of my life.
Nero tells Gemma he’s not ready for a commitment right now, especially since he’s diving back into the banger life, and she tells him women don’t need to be loved, they just need to be wanted.
I disagree. Some women need a lot more than that.
Lyla interrupts them to let them know Jax is here to see Nero. Nero brings Jax half of the Dante money, but Jax turns it down initially and wants Nero to call it a down payment on the half million they owe him for Wendy’s ransom. Nero insists that Jax take it for the guys in the MC, especially since they helped him tremendously in the Dante takedown. Their conversation quickly evolves into the bigger picture, with each one telling the other to get out of the life and run away with their families before they’re destroyed. Gemma is eavesdropping at this point, and overhears Nero tells Jax “Tell you what, I’ll make you another deal. You walk away, I walk away.”
Who are we kidding? We’ll never quit this life! Let’s go get infinity tattoos together!
